TORONTO (AP) — Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos' movies aren't the sort that typically attract a stampede of Hollywood A-listers.

The 41-year-old star says that raising his two sons, 13-year-old James with his ex-girlfriend, model Kim Bordenave, and seven-year-old Henry with his former partner, Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus, is the most important job in the world to him now.

Colin Farrell classes himself as a dad who sometimes acts rather than an actor.
The 41-year-old star is enjoying one of the most successful periods of his career, following acclaimed performances in 2015 black comedy 'The Lobster', 2016 Harry Potter spin-off 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' and Sofia Coppola's remake of sexually charged drama 'The Beguiled' - which originally was released in 1971 with Clint East in the lead role.
