Los Angeles, April 27 (IANS) Actor Colin Farrell calls himself a “good boy” for not having dated anyone in four years. He says he’s more inclined towards raising his children now.
The 38-year-old actor is famous for his alliances with many A-list women, including Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Lindsay Lohan, but he has insisted his lothario days are now far behind him, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I am a good boy these days. There is not one (woman in my life) – zilch, nada. I have not dated for, ooh, four years now. It’s just not happening, what with the work, the kids and my life. I know it’s not what people expect to hear, but that’s the honest truth,” Farrell said.
He has two sons James and Henry.
The “Phone Booth” actor says children are the reason for him overcoming his drug addiction and living up to “those old expectations”, especially James – who he has with Canadian model Kim Bordenave – as he was born with a developmental disorder called Angelman syndrome, which causes severe intellectual and physical disability.
“(When you have children) it’s not all about you any more, which is a relief. It’s about a bigger world, and helping them find their place in it. It’s not about ‘me, me, me, the loudmouth’ any more – and that takes the pressure off me to live up to those old expectations,” Farrell told Style magazine.
