Colin Farrell has spoken out about homophobic bullying at an Irish LGBT group recalling to the trouble and pain his gay brother went through during his teen years.

Speaking at the group, Belong To, Colin was asked on his perspective of growing up with a brother who was gay. The LGBT group is currently doing a week long campaign to help battle homophobic bullying. When recalling about his brothers earlier years the actor said:

I can't remember much about the years of physical and emotional abuse my brother Eamon suffered.

I was very small. The thing I do remember though, quite literally, is blood on his school shirt when he came home in the afternoon. The beatings and taunting were very frequent for him and a constant part of his school years.

People are often afraid of difference. They feel that anything that causes fear should be turned away from. My brother represented fear for so many people, but caused joy in my life. From a very young age he made me laugh with his intelligence and wit, made me aspire to his strength and goodness. He was to be embraced.

To many of the students of his school however he was to be feared. He was to be turned away from. I didn't understand it then, and I still don't now.
