Colin Farrell set tongues wagging at Tuesday's Golden Globes as he enjoyed a flirty exchange with Ana De Armas during his acceptance speech for Best Actor - Motion Picture - Musical/Comedy.
The Irish star, 46, who picked up the gong for his role in The Banshees of Inisherin, showed off his sensitive side as he revealed to De Armas, 34, that her role as Marilyn Monroe biopic, Blonde, had left him "crying himself to sleep."
Fans quickly erupted on social media as they claimed the notorious Hollywood lothario was "shooting his shot" at the Cuban beauty.
As he accepted his award from fellow nominee De Armas, Farrell said: "I just thought you were extraordinary. I cried myself to sleep the night I saw your film, Blonde. I cried myself to sleep."
"Not a joke, but you're welcome to laugh. It's not my place to say what's appropriate laughter in this world."
This quickly sparked a response on social media, with one fan writing: "Is Colin Farrell trying to pick up Ana de Armas on this stage? Respect."
Another wrote: "Colin Farrell is like us all: he had one clear shot at Ana de Armas and he took it/did his best. Respect."
