London: Colin Farrell has confessed that he was ready to become Elizabeth Taylor`s husband number 8.

Farrell and Taylor met when the 37-year-old actor second son, Henry, was being born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where the actress was receiving treatment.

He said that the meeting resulted in a courtship, a year and a half or two years of what was the last romantic relationship that he ever had, which was never consummated, the Daily Express reported.

The `Recruit` star added that he adored Taylor, asserting that she was a spectacular woman.

Farrell also read the Gerard Manley Hopkins poem `The Leaden Echo And The Golden Echo` at her funeral and spoke later about how much he missed her.
