Colin Farrell's top priority are his two sons, 11-year-old James and five-year-old Henry. In a new interview with Men's Health magazine, the handsome True Detective star opens up about life as a single parent and how being a dad has always taken priority over dating.
Somewhat surprisingly, Colin reveals he has been single for five years now. "It's not that I don't get lonely sometimes, but I'm okay with it," he admitted in the revealing interview. "The most significant aspect of my life lives far away from anywhere that a camera is needed.

Colin Farrell has opened up about life as a single dad
"You play the part and do interviews but don't overextend yourself or put on a mask or change your name. Because when you get home, the only thing that matters is your son is not eating his turkey sandwiches and he's not into avocado anymore, so you have to find something new that he'll eat for lunch."
Colin welcomed his eldest son James in 2003 with model Kim Bordenave, and in October 2009 he and his Ondine co-star Alicja Bachleda-Curus became parents of his second child Henry – their relationship ended in mid-2010.
"I've had some very romantic times in my life," the 39-year-old actor told the Telegraph in February 2014. "And I'd like to think of myself as a romantic – if I ever thought of myself.
"I've fallen in love in my life and at times it felt so deep I couldn't imagine my life without the other person, and then it hasn't worked out and I thought the ground was going to open up and swallow me whole and that life had no meaning. And then time did its thing and it introduced me to other things that became important in my life."
