Colin Farrell isn't a fan of the commerciality of Valentine's Day and thinks that love should be celebrated every day, not just once a year.

Speaking to Wenn, he said, "Love is possibly underrated and the importance of it and how it's prevalence in a single person's life or in a shared community can make incredible changes and promote the idea of peace and harmony in a society or a person's individual existence.

"I think love has to be the one thing that defines us as human beings; our ability to care for each other, our ability to demonstrate, through acts of compassion, a concern for your fellow man."

He concluded, "But Valentine's Day – I don't even know what that's about. I mean, it's an excuse, I don't think there's anything wrong with flowers or chocolate covered cherries, but it would be nice if it didn't take a commercially-promoted holiday for people to extend themselves in gestures of love."
