Irish actor Colin Farrell has been included in Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People 2023 List.

Farrell who has come in for praise from Nicole Kidman, has been named on a list which includes US President Joe Biden, World Cup winner Lionel Messi, Ukraine's First Lady Olena Zelenski, Britain's King Charles III, model Bella Hadid, singer Beyoncé, along with author Salmin Rushdie and basketball player Brittney Griner.

Colin Farrell earned himself an Oscar nomination for his role in the Martin McDonagh directed Banshees of Inisherin, and was hailed by Nicole Kidman for being the "actor's actor". 

She also added that he "has always been about doing the work and not about building up his stardom or legacy".

 "When Colin Farrell and I starred together in the 2017 films The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, I felt like I had found both my knight in shining armor and my partner in crime", Kidman writes of Farrell.

She continued, "He was very emotionally open with me, and I'm very protective of him. I admire his tenacity, his resilience, and his great sense of humor. He's got such an Irish kind of sensibility". 

"He's not frightened of tone or genre, and he's very present. Ego is not attached to his performances. You really see that in the longevity of his nearly 30-year-long career". 

"As a result, he's risen to the top—and this year, he received his first Oscar nomination for his incredible performance in The Banshees of Inisherin", she added. 

The actress concluded by writing, "It's lovely to see someone who's been so resilient and committed and pure finally being lauded for what he does. He also seems to look younger every year". 

Colin Farrell has also reprised his role as The Penguin in the Batman spin off series, which will arrive at some stage next year.
