A sex video made by actor Colin Farrell and a Playboy Playmate surfaced Tuesday on the Internet despite a court injunction blocking its release.
Word about a website carrying the video featuring Farrell and his then-girlfriend, Nicole Narain, Playboy magazine's Miss January 2002, rapidly spread on the Internet through other websites, including IDontLikeYouIn ThatWay.com, which also posted what it said were video stills of the Irish actor and Narain engaged in sex acts.
In releasing the video, the other website said, "Colin tried to stop us from showing you this.... Well, here it is anyways," according to IDontLikeYouInThatWay. By late Tuesday afternoon, the website carrying the video was unavailable for viewing.
Farrell's publicist released this statement Tuesday: "A website attempting to distribute an unauthorized tape of Colin Farrell was shut down today. Mr. Farrell will take legal action against anyone who tries to distribute this tape." There was no immediate comment from Farrell's attorney.
