Colin isn’t a Tinder fan…

He may be single for the last number of years, but it looks like Colin Farrell won’t be resorting to Tinder to secure a date.

The Hollywood star, who recently visited his native Dublin to promote new movie The Lobster, doesn’t seem to be a fan of people meeting online.

“The idea of choosing someone based on them being the exact same as you … is a rather narcissistic approach to things,” the 39-year-old said.

“And yet that’s what a lot of the internet dating is, ‘These are my interests. Do you share the same interests? Well, let’s go and share our interests together.’

”But if you meet someone who has different interests, they can open your eyes to something different and something you’ve not experienced before,” he told the Guardian.

Although he’s never gone on an online date, the handsome actor admitted he thinks people would be inclined to judge him based on his fame.”

He added: “I haven’t had a date and I don’t know about that whole thing. But for sure, anyone I meet will have an idea… not anyone, but some people have an idea who I am and what I’m about, so it’s harder to have a blank canvas at the start of things.

”But that’s okay, you know, it’s good to learn to disappoint expectations.”

The True Detective star made an appearance on the Late Late Show while in the city last week, where he admitted he’s been without a girlfriend for 6 years now.

“Don’t get me wrong, if I met someone tomorrow you know, your life expands accordingly, as does your heart, and you find moments and you find evenings and you get a babysitter and all that jazz,” he told host Ryan Tubridy.
