Los Angeles: Actor Colin Farrell says being a father can be "terrifying", but there's also a "great liberation".Farrell is a dad to James, 12, and Henry, 4.

"It's incredibly complicated, I find it, to be a father because I have no idea what I'm doing," said Farrell, who is the new face of Dolce & Gabbana's Intenso cologne, opened up to the brand on what it means to him to be a father, reports eonline.com.

"I haven't read any books, but I know that if I did they would just confound me even more."

"It can be a terrifying thing, but also there's a great liberation in being a father, if I can speak from a point of self-interest for a second. Because for the first time in your life you are not the most important thing in your world," he added.

He also shared that for the "first time in your life you really have an understanding of what it is to love unconditionally. And it's a pretty extraordinary gift".
