Britney Spears accompanied Colin Farrell to the Hollywood premiere of his latest film 'The Recruit'.

The Irish actor, who first appeared on screens as Danny Byrne in the TV series 'Ballykissangel', is the latest man to be linked with the pop princess since her split with Justin Timberlake.

A thriller about a suspected CIA mole, 'The Recruit' stars Farrell and Al Pacino and is due to open in Ireland at the end of March.

Farrell has also featured in 'Minority Report', with Tom Cruise, and Joel Schumacher's bootcamp drama 'Tigerland'.
