Farrell Tested Stone's Patience After Drunken Fall

Hellraiser COLIN FARRELL almost faced the wrath of movie maker OLIVER STONE after breaking his ankle and his wrist with three days of ALEXANDER still to film.

The Irishman fell down a stairway after living it up at a party co-star VAL KILMER threw for the cast and crew in Thailand and passed out.

He woke up in agony with broken bones, and Stone admits he came close to ruining the film's ending.

The director says, "Colin came very close. He gambled. We made it. We got some fill-in shots."

Stone admits that despite the drunken mishap, the Irishman was a delight to work with.

He adds, "Colin's got something ancient in him and I'm really happy with what he's doing."
