Colin Farrell revealed he hasn’t dated in about four years, and the heartthrob actor says he has no intentions of entering the dating world any time soon.

Colin Farrell Hasn’t Dated In 4 Years

Farrell, 38, has two sons, James, 11, and Henry, 5, and he would rather be spending his time off work with them than dating. “I have not dated for, ooh, four years now. It’s just not happening, what with the work, the kids and my life,” Farrell admitted.

Instead of dating, Farrell said he focuses on helping his kids find their footing.  “It’s not all about you anymore, which is a relief. It’s about a bigger world, and helping them find their place in it,” he said.

Farrell added that having children has helped him escape his early bad boy reputation. “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 explained in a recent interview with The Sunday Times.

Farrell is currently gearing up for the premiere of the highly anticipated second season of True Detective, in which he stars alongside Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch.
