NEW YORK, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Bill Murray is okay with being a bachelor.

The 64-year-old actor detailed his relationship status in an interview on The Howard Stern Show. Murray is twice divorced, and told host Howard Stern he is single but not lonely.


"I do think about [why I haven't found a great love]," he admitted. "I'm not sure what I'm getting done here. I have kids that I'm responsible for. I don't think I'm lonely."

Murray married Margaret Kelly in January 1981, and has two sons, Homer and Luke, by his first wife. The marriage ended in 1996 after the actor had an affair with Jennifer Butler, and he wed his mistress in 1997. He and Butler have four sons, Caleb, Jackson, Cooper and Lincoln, and divorced in 2008.

"[It] would be nice to go to some of these things and have a date," he said of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's wedding. "But there's a lot that I'm not doing that I need to do... Just some things like working on yourself or self-development or something... becoming more connected to myself."


Murray will next appear alongside Melissa McCarthy in St. Vincent on Oct. 24, and is also scheduled for Rock the Kasbah and HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge.
