Colin Farrell finds being a clueless father ''liberating''.

The 'Seven Psychopaths' actor - who has sons James, nine, and three-year-old Henry with two former partners - doesn't worry about the day-to-day tasks involved in caring for two young children and just takes everything in his stride.

He said: ''Not knowing what the f-ck I'm doing as a dad is huge. I don't know what I'm doing, and that's a very liberating thing. You just go, 'Oh look, there's s**t on the floor.' There's actually s**t on the floor - I have a picture of it on my phone. So what do you do? You clean it up, put a diaper on his ass, and that's that.

''It's just about being present for these guys.''

Colin has been single since splitting from Henry's mother Alicja Bachleda in 2010 and the 36-year-old hunk has vowed to be more active in his next relationship.

He told Details magazine: ''I haven't been in a relationship in a while. [It's been] two and a half years since I was with Henry's mother.

''If I ever do get involved with somebody again, I will try as much as possible to shut my f**king mouth and stay f**king present. Love in action, man! Not love in f**king words.''
