Wildman actor Colin Farrell vows to keep his language clean in the company of baby son JAMES - because he dreads the prospect of being called a "f**king b**tard" by his impressionable offspring.

The Phone Booth hunk's penchant for swearing has been well documented in the media, but he wants to raise his one-year-old child with model KIM BORDENAVE in an obscenity-free environment.

He says, "The 'f**k' word never made a bad person. But of course, I don't want my kid going, 'Hey, day, you f**king b**tard, how are you?'

"I don't want that to happen so I'm going to curb my language a little bit."
