Colin Farrell Makes Rare Public Appearance with Girlfriend

These two like to stay out of the way of photog flashbulbs as a couple, but as co-stars it's a different story. Colin Farrell and Alicja Bachleda posed politely for a bit at the premiere of their film Odine yesterday at the Tribeca Film Festival, then went off and did some separate mingling. No PDA, for sure.

Odine, a love story and an Irish fisherman and a mermaid, brought them together for the first time, though the relationship thing wasn't the first priority at first.

"We met on the set, and we were very professional and focused on our part and our jobs," said Bachleda, 26 (via People.com). "The story itself is so beautiful … we really didn't have time to get our true emotions [on screen]."

They ended up getting to know each other very well, and Bachleda gave birth to their son Henry 6 months ago. "He's sitting up already and all smiles!," she said. "He's such a lovely baby."

Farrell has a 6-year-old son from a previous relationship, sounds like he's having a great time being a dad of 2. "I'm reading Dr. Seuss to him, because it's so much fun, but it's probably more for me than for him," he said. "But also some Roald Dahl and William Butler Yeats, fairy tales and stuff like that."
