Colin Farrell has never been married ... or has he?

Farrell met English actress and singer Amelia Warner at the premiere of the movie “Quills”, in 2000. They dated from July to November 2001. There was speculation that they married. Speaking about the experience, the actor commented "Too fast, too young."

However, in December 2011, Warner told The Sun that the marriage was never legal. "We had a ceremony on a beach in Tahiti that was by no means legal and we knew it wasn't, said Warner.

“It was just a thing we did on holiday. We went shark feeding and then we did that. We booked them both on the activities desk at the hotel.”

Farrell has a tattoo of Amelia's name around his ring finger.

On July 20, 2006, as Farrell was being interviewed by Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, telephone sex worker Dessarae Bradford evaded security, walked on stage, confronted Farrell, and threw a self-published book-length exposé of Farrell on Leno's desk.

As Farrell escorted her off the stage and handed her over to NBC security, she shouted "I'll see you in court!" She never produced an ounce of evidence. Farrell obtained a restraining order against her.
