Colin Farrell has come clean about his love life – or lack of one – claiming he hasn’t dated in over four years.
The Irish actor, who was once known for his playboy ways, told The Sunday Times that he is single and is not rushing to get into anything romantically.
“I have not dated for ooh, four years now. It’s just not happening, what with the work, the kids and my life,” he told The UK newspaper. “I know it’s not what people expect to hear, but that’s the honest truth.”
The Dublin heartthrob, who has two sons, 11-year-old James and five-year-old Harry, said he was happy to spend time with his kids rather than going out and meeting women.
The 38-year-old star has been linked to many famous faces over the years, including Britney Spears, Demi Moore, Elizabeth Taylor and Angelina Jolie, but he has now revealed that those days are behind him.
“It’s not all about you anymore, which is a relief,” Farrell said. “It’s about a bigger world, and helping them find their place in it.”
“It’s not about me, me me, the loudmouth anymore- and that takes the pressure off me to live up to those old expectations.” he added.
Colin is set to appear in the second series of True Detective where he will star alongside Hollywood heavyweights Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughan.
The much-anticipated return of the critically acclaimed show will premiere on the 22nd of June on Sky Atlantic.
