Colin Farrell and Jamie Lee Curtis took part in an 'Actors on Actors' interview, with the two Hollywood legends sitting down to discuss their lives and careers.
One of the nicest moments from the interview came when Farrell showed Curtis a piece of music that had inspired him throughout the filming of The Banshees of Inisherin.
The piece is Vide Cor Meum, and was written by Irish composer Patrick Cassidy for Ridley Scott's Hannibal movie from 2001.
“It’s nice. Huh? It was an accident, but it’s an Irish composer,” said Farrell.
“Patrick Cassidy is his name – Vide Cor Meum. There is forgiveness. There is revelation. There is hope. There is the acceptance of sadness. Not just the representation of sadness, not just the witnessing, but the accepting of it as a part of our life.”
However, people on Twitter did their thing and could not resists making their own edited versions with different pieces of music, ranging from Richie Kavanagh to House of Pain.

One of the standout parts of the interview was the discussion between the two actors on getting sober, with both Farrell and Curtis talking about the importance of sobriety in their lives.
Farrell: "No. I had suspicions, before I got sober, of how painful life could be. But I had no ability to hold that without being self-destructive and without living in it. I don’t live in that now. I feel these things that we’re talking about, at times. And I consider life greatly at times. And other times, I’m as frivolous as I was when I was 6 years old on a good day."
Curtis: "I think about it a lot. Being sober is going to be a legacy, for sure. Because I’m stopping what has been a generational issue in my biological family. It’ll be the single greatest thing I do, if I can stay sober. Because generations of people have had their lives ruled and ruined by alcoholism and drug addiction. For me, sobriety first. Always."
