Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell were so close to becoming lovers they discussed the possibility of dating - but decided their personalities are too similar.

The Alexander co-stars were rumoured to have started dating during the filming of the epic movie but Jolie claims they refrained from consummating their mutual attraction at the last moment.

Jolie says, "Colin and I did discuss the idea of dating. He is a very interesting man and artist.

"But we've also talked about how we're maybe too similar. So at this point we're just great friends."
