Colin Farrell opens up on disabled son

Nov 15 2012, 9:10am CST | by

Colin Farrell ''almost broke in half'' when his son James - who suffers from Angelman Syndrome - took his first steps at the age of four.

Colin Farrell ''almost broke in half'' when his son took his first steps.
The 'Total Recall' actor's eldest child James, nine, suffers from Angelman Syndrome - a neuro-genetic disorder with symptoms including intellectual and developmental disability, seizures, jerky movements and sleep disturbances - and he and the little boy's mother Kim Bordenave delight in his small milestones.
He said: ''We share in the smallest victories; the first words at age six or seven, being able to feed oneself at 19, and getting the seizures under control. When James took his first steps at age four, I nearly broke in half!''
Colin - who also has son Henry, three, with
Alicja Bachleda-Curus - went public with James' condition when the little boy was four years old, and says he was inspired to do so after watching the Paralympic games.
He told the December edition of America's In Style magazine: ''It was at the Special Olympics in Shanghai in 2007 that I decided, after consulting with James' mother, that I wanted to talk publicly about the pride and joy I had in our son. He has enriched my life, but I don't want to minimise the trials that so many families go through; the fear, consternation, frustration, and pain.''
And the 36-year-old actor has been given support in coping with James' problems by the Foundation For Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).
He said: ''When you're the parent of a child with special needs, it's important to feel that you're not alone.''

Rachel McAdams is probably the female lead in ‘True Detective’: yay or nay?

Sep 26 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Even though I’m really annoyed by it, I have to give True Detective producers some props for the most exciting casting-watch of the year. Everybody has an opinion of who should be and who should not be in Season 2 of True Detective and we don’t even know the story/crime. Earlier this week, we heard that Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell have FOR SURE been cast in Season 2. Colin will be playing one the cops and Vince will be playing some kind of career criminal. I’m assuming Vince’s charac ...

(Funny Or Die) Kate Mara and Ellen Page are “Tiny Detectives” in a new Funny Or Die spoof of “True Detective.” The actresses may be small, but they still want to play crime solvers! Who cares if Mara and Page can’t see the evidence? Or if their guns are way too big for their bodies? At least they can pull off some top-notch “Little Rascals”-style hijinks by standing on each other’s shoulders and pretending to be a full ...
