The Golden Globe wining actor, 38, who was linked to a series of women in the past, said he would rather spend quality time with his two sons who he loves with all of his heart, reported E!Online.

"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.

"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.

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," he said.

Farrell is the proud father to son James, 11, and Henry, 5, with two different partners.
