Irish movie star Colin Farrell is planning to take much of 2007 off because he fears he's missing out on playing dad to his baby son.

The ALEXANDER star has spent the past six years working on and promoting movies and he admits it's beginning to take its toll and he needs a break.

He says, "I've got two pieces lined up within the next year and a half. Then I'm gonna take a year and just be with my family and my son. Just chill out and take it easy.

"I mean, life ain't tough for me, don't get me wrong, but I'm just missing being home big time."
