Colin Farrell spoke to the Independent and revealed that his 4-year-old son, James, was born with a rare form of cerebral palsy called Angelman Syndrome. Colin shares joint-custody with James' mother. Even before his son was born Colin worked with the Special Olympic closely.
He said, "With my son the only time I'm reminded that there is something different about him – that he has some deviation of what is perceived to be normal – is when I see him with other four-year-olds.
“Then I go “oh yeah” and it comes back to me. But from day one I felt that he's the way he's meant to be. He took his first steps about six weeks ago and it was four years in the making. All the work is his, he worked his arse off for four years.”
“And when he took the first steps it was incredibly emotional, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. I have never thought of my son as being someone with a disability. It goes back to special needs and what is a disability and what isn't."
I was thinking to myself the other day "where has dirty Colin been?" Looks like he's cleaned up for his boy. He used to be a straight-up, dirty whore, skank licking slut and now he actually sounds like a good daddy. Who would've thought?!
