Irish actor Colin Farrell has opened up on his previously unknown relationship with legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor.  Speaking to tv talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, Colin candidly admitted that he spoke to her very regularly, often during the night when both of them had trouble sleeping. He says that the relationship began when he found out the actress was in hospital and he passed on his regards to her, only to receive flowers and a note back from Elizabeth a few days later. He said that it was just the beginning:

“That was the beginning of a year and a half or two years of what was – it was kind of like the last, it feels like in my head – not her, I’m projecting – but the last kind of romantic relationship I had. Which was never consummated… She wouldn’t mind me speaking about this. She wasn’t much of a sleeper at night, like I’m not. I’d call her at two in the morning and we’d talk for a half an hour, an hour into the wee hours. Really cool.”

Farrell jokes that he would have been happy to have been Taylor’s 8th husband. When she passed away in 2011, he was one of very few non-family members allowed to attend her funeral and he even addressed those in attendance with a moving poem in memory of the late actress. Colin says he “adored her”:

 “I just adored her. She was a spectacular, spectacular woman. I wanted to be number eight but we ran out of road.”
