He said that the meeting resulted in a courtship, a year and a half or two years of what was the last romantic relationship that he ever had, which was never consummated, the Daily Express reported.

The ‘Recruit’ star added that he adored Taylor, asserting that she was a spectacular woman.

Farrell also read the Gerard Manley Hopkins poem ‘The Leaden Echo And The Golden Echo’ at her funeral and spoke later about how much he missed her.
