Colin Farrell is no longer a Cannes Film Festival virgin.

The actor is in Cannes for the first time with The Lobster, a decidedly unusual film about single people who have less than two months to find a mate or face being turned into an animal and released into the woods.

Despite being in dozens of films over the past two decades, Farrell said that he had never come before -- and he didn’t exactly make the most of his inaugural visit.

“I wouldn’t mind being here a little bit longer,” he said.

Farrell shot the movie, in which he stars with Rachel Weisz, in his native Ireland — a bonus for him.

“Everything about this experience was really, really particular for me,” said the actor. “The writing, the cast and the experience in the location we were shooting in.”
