Colin Farrell is on break from his latest project as production halted amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The In Bruges star, 43, appeared in high spirits, as he kept his heart rate up on a brisk dog walk on Saturday at Griffith Park in Los Angeles. 

During his break from isolation, the Golden Globe winner sported a pair of athletic shorts and kept his nose and mouth covered under a makeshift black face mask.

He added: 'Oh my god, it did a number. I suffered from a very brief, but pretty significant depression for a space of two weeks. I was very down to the point where I got online and I looked at ACL surgery and depression.' 

Farrell was recently gearing up for his role in the highly-anticipated The , before production was shutdown in March.

For his role in the Robert Pattinson-led film, the actor has been announced to be playing the villainous Penguin.
