Farrell: Sex scenes? There are worse days at the office

Colin Farrell loves filming sex scenes.

The Dublin actor has had on-screen encounters with leading ladies including Kate Beckinsale, Salma Hayek and Rosario Dawson and says he can think of worse ways to spend his time on set than frolicking with some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood.

The 37-year-old star quipped: "There are worse days at the office. Maybe that's awfully cheap and sleazy of me!"

Colin - who has Henry, four, with ex-girlfriend Alicja Bachleda-Curus and James, 10, with another ex; model Kim Bordenave - isn't so keen on green screen scenes, such as in his latest movie, 'A Winter's Tale', where he had to straddle a barrel to make it look like he was on a flying horse.

He added to Us Weekly magazine: "That was one of my more mortifying experiences."

Colin also protests he is a true romantic, like his character, Peter, in the new movie.

He added: "He wasn't looking for love, but all of a sudden, the world opens up to him. Love really is all you need."
