Atkins, 70, fights off hunk Colin Farrell

May 4, 2005 at 8:10 PM

LONDON, May 4 (UPI) -- Irish heart-throb Colin Farrell has set his sights on 70-year-old British actress Dame Eileen Atkins -- at least that's what Atkins reports.

Atkins told the British talk show Loose Women that while she shot a movie three weeks before her 70th birthday, "a simply stunningly gorgeous big film star aged 28 years old, came into my hotel room for sex without strings."

"I spent two and a half hours saying 'No.' But it was pure bliss and it made me sail through my 70th birthday without a care in the world," the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

When asked whether she was tempted to act on the offer, Atkins replied, "Of course I was." Instead, she said, she repeatedly told her suitor, "This is deeply inappropriate."

Atkins originally did not name Farrell as the actor, not intending to publicize his rejection, but her agent later confirmed it was indeed the well-know Irish actor.
