After keeping their romance on the down-low for about a year – and even welcoming a son – Colin Farrell and girlfriend Alicja Bachleda made a rare public appearance together in New York for Wednesday's Tribeca Film Festival premiere of their movie Ondine.
The movie is a love story between an Irish fisherman (Farrell) and a mermaid (Bachleda) – and at the opening night, from the red carpet to the Aveniu Wines-sponsored after-party at Soho's Beba restaurant, the couple avoided any outward public displays of affection. Instead, they chatted with those around them.
"We met on the set, and we were very professional and focused on our part and our jobs," said the Mexican-born, Polish actress Bachleda, 26. "The story itself is so beautiful … we really didn't have time to get our true emotions [on screen]."

Touching down at LAX on Sunday, all eyes were on Colin Farrell and girlfriend Alicja Bachleda – who sparked pregnancy rumors by showing off what appeared to be a baby bump.
Polish actress Bachleda, 26, whom Farrell began dating earlier this year, reportedly rested a hand on her growing belly while making her way through the airport with her Ondine costar.
A rep for Farrell, 33, could not be reached for comment.
If true, this will make the actor a father for the second time – he has a 5 ½-year-old son, James, with model Kim Bordenave. Of James – who was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome in 2004 – Farrell says, "[I'm] incredibly blessed to have him in my life."

It is taking three top names Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell – to step into Heath Ledger's final role, in the unfinished movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, according to a rep for Law.
Speaking to the BBC, Law's spokeswoman confirmed that the three actors would play Ledger's role of Tony. She was unaware, however, as to how the part would be restructured in the film, which deals with magic.
Ledger, 28, was still shooting the $30-million movie, directed by Terry Gilliam and costarring Christopher Plummer, when he was found dead from an accidental overdose of prescription medicines on Jan. 22.
