Colin Farrell's Son Rushes to the Doctor

Colin Farrell's Son Rushes to the Doctor

Colin Farrell takes his son James, 3 1/2, and rushes into a doctor’s office accompanied by his son’s nanny. After the medical visit, the nanny carried temper-tantrum-throwing James out of the doctor’s office without Colin.

James‘ mother is American model Kim Bordenave, whom Colin has since separated from. The A-list actor recently moved on to medical student Muireann McDonnell, 22, who spent weeks in Europe earlier this year to be with Colin and James.

Colin, 31, will next appear in Pride And Glory playing a police officer alongside Ed Norton.

    Poor kid. There was always talk that he was in some way developmentally delayed/disabled. Hope he’s ok.

  • Anon.

    Well, kids throw temper tantrums sometimes. It doesn’t look serious. Maybe the kid was due for a shot and didn’t want one. Or maybe he was sick and feeling miserable. It happens. I have to give Colin a lot of credit for cleaning himself up, sticking with AA, and trying to be a real, hands on daddy. And James is probably a teensy bit of a badass…like his father…and probably very charming…like his father. What I really hate? Paparazzi taking pictures of the minor children of celebrities without their permission. Sometimes the kids get upset bcz the paps scare them…then the paps invent some story.

  • Lillianne

    A good temper tantrum means he’s probably going to be all right. When they’re limp and mopey is when you worry. And I like this nanny. She’s got a good hold on him, no nonsense getting him to the car. Colin, give her a raise. Look what she puts up with.

  • Sophia

    #3 I don’t agree. Too much of either is a sign that something is wrong.

  • betch

    what a poser, the kid obviously stole angelina jolie’s knees and legs.

  • [Famous]

    I’m sure the little guy will be fine, pretty soon he’ll go on to follow in his fathers footsteps and sleep with all the girls in his elementary school.

    Ed Norton’s a great actor I know that movie will rock.

  • Nicole

    Oh please, why does a temper tantrum automatically mean there’s something wrong? He probably got a shot and was pissed.

  • H

    ugh I thought colin farrell disappeared I can’t stand him he’s such a no talent, dirty, womanizing douchebag

  • MMM

    Really cute kid, but looking at his kneecaps is making me queasy. Yuck.

  • tanique33

    the movie gods continue to smile down upon me. colin and ewan, colin and ed. i can’t wait for both movies.

    his son is a cutie. but i have to laugh at how a crying kid has turned into deep rooted problems.

  • banatic

    i find the use of ‘a’ list actor ridiculous. what the hell has collin farrell done within the last, gee i dont know, five years or so??

  • Sunny

    Is there anyone who knows the child’s mother?

  • maxine

    I’m no doctor but this doesn’t look like just a temper tantrum. I’m afraid he has some kind of developmental problem. Poor kid. The paps should stay away.

  • Michelle

    I remember reading a while ago that Colin’s son was Autistic, so the pic’s make sense. Poor little guy.

  • DirtyDisher

    Temper tantrum throwing? he was “rushed” to a doctor..maybe the kid was sick. Ever think of that????

  • monica

    His mother is model Kim Bordenave…can’t really say who the little boy looks like, I don’t see the resemblence to either of them.

  • Sunny

    Thanks monica!

  • moonie

    You are all sick . The kid is furious because he wanted to go with his dad and not the nanny. All kids do that.
    Not all fathers take babies to the doctor. So give Colin a break.

  • Blah…

    That kid looks absolutely fine, ok a temper tantrum…all kids do that in their lifetime sometime!

    And I don’t think people should speculate whether the kid has any development problems etc cos to be honest that’s the family’s business, not ours. I think the kid looks like a normal 3ish year old boy…I like his haircut too, v cool! :)

  • uke-chan

    love collin farrell

  • dukeson

    he is so skinny im scared take good care of ya child,colin

  • marmara

    I wish the best for Colin and his son.

  • Didi

    as a mother of a little drama queen. I can categorically say tantrums are a sign of health. a mother knows the difference between a distressed cry that indicates something is wrong and a tantrum, the two cries are distinct.

  • christin

    maybe he just doesn’t like going to the doctor? i don’t think any kid does lol

  • Jill

    Kid needs a hair cut and the reason he is crying is because he can’t see:)

  • josianne

    i was a child like this and when you look now, im perfectly healthy and theres was nothing wrong whit me as a teenager or now.

    they said is dating a young women, poor her she will me heart broken. As much as i like colin, i have to admit that he use women badly.

  • http://JustJared mrs.tootsie

    Leave them alone, my gosh, give them a break. I agree with moonie on this one. He is just mad because he wasn’t with Colin. All kids do that.

  • Mmmmm

    He is an A-List actor? Only thing I know him for is shaggying Angelina, does that put you in the A-List catagory?

    Btw, if the kid has Autistism it makes perfect sense, poor thing.

  • Wwwwww

    Mmmmm 29
    You are so right, even tho he denied shaggying Angelina that was his top event.

    What is the big deal about he taking his kid to the doctors – my dad use to take my brother and I to the doctors all the time. And my parents both work and raised children without the help of nannies.

  • mary_hollywood

    HE IS AN A-LIST ACTOR!! He works with the greatest directors, actors, everybody knows him and not making good choices for a movie role doesn’t mean people won’t come to see your work.

    For his son, I truly hope he isn’t mentally disturbed or anything else. Bless the child.

    I love Colin!!

  • jered

    F*cking Angelina love only perfect kids.

  • gismo

    Bless the child.
    And bless Colin and his family.

  • ichbins

    he takes care of the child
    this is big

    !!!Colin the great!!!

  • nanda

    people sometimes can be so mean… I don’t care about colin but saying bad things about a inocent child is so sad…

  • Leslie

    His best roles have been indie films–but he’s done enough big films to be correctly called A list.

    Pretty normal behaving kid to me, that’s a tough age–felt like I needed a valium to get through a grocery store tantrum lol

  • the DQ

    It DOES appear the kid has some sort of disability and autisim would make sense. I hadn’t heard that before.

    As for Brangalina’s kids, I think Z has some growth issues related to malnutrition.

  • Mika

    “I’m no doctor but this doesn’t look like just a temper tantrum. I’m afraid he has some kind of developmental problem.”

    You are no doctor so you couldn’t know unless you have a proffesional medical background and medical experince.

  • Wwwww

    If it is true that Colin would sleep with anyone at least once, I wonder why we haven’t heard any Nanny stories about him in the last 3 YEARS. Maybe he did not get caught.

  • the DQ

    His left leg and body posture in the 5th picture are extremely suspicious.

  • Allie

    He probably has Autism, I will keep him in my prayers…..

  • thetruth

    I hate Kim.
    She is fault, she wolte a baby of Colin.
    She lured him into the falls.

    And Jame’s pay the Price. I pray for him.

  • Riverz

    TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT… Colin’s son DOES have a Developmental Disorder. From What I kno he is unable to walk or have full function of his moter skills. ***He often wears braces on his ankles. U can see them in the pictures if u look close enough*** I Dont know exactly what it is he has, but HE IS PHYSICALLY DISABLED.

  • Mika

    where on earh are the braces?I don’t see any.

  • Anonymous

    Someone on another site said it looks likes James has Fragile X syndrome.

  • Riverz

    The braces are on his ankles look at his shoes. u can see them in pic #4. they are the black things around his ankles and go down into his shoe, supporting his ankle.

  • aidansmom

    you all are so ignorant. go to, then speak your minds. angelmans syndrome is a very serious genetic disorder, some never walk or talk, they have low immune systems so catch everthing, have serious seizures, are always happy so its kind of hard to throw a temper tantrum when your happy all the time. they have sleeping disoreder and eating disorders thats why he looks so skinny, but is probably healthy since they make them drink pediasure to substitute nutrtion. they also have sensory issues like to touch, hot/cold, touching of head, so he might not like getting a haircut, or like people shoving him in a car. and if i could afford a nanny for my 3yr old son who has angelmans syndrome, by all means id have one, maybe i wouldnt be so tired and bitter, it is a life of struugle heartbrake and stress.

  • jake

    aidansmom – Colin released news of his son’s condition this October. The comments on this post are from June and July. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

  • tracy

    the child has Angelman Syndrome as someone noted above. as a mom of an “angel”, I’m used to people looking at my son when he has a meltdown and thinking he’s just having a tantrum. some of you guys need to take this though and realize that what you think you see is not always what the reality is. next time you see a child that looks “normal” acting up, give the parents a break and take into consideration that they may not be “typical peers”.
    as far as the skinny part-these kids metabolism is unbelievable. my son (6 years old) will eat more than an adult, get down from the table, and 5 minutes later act like he hasn’t eaten for weeks and start eating again.
    as was noted above, many kids don’t start walking until they are at least 5, if they are that lucky. braces are common, a lot of the kids are “toe walkers” or in the case of my son he walks on the knuckles of his toes at times. this is a result of hypertonicity and the braces are sometimes trying to force their muscles to stretch and force them to walk on the bottoms of their feet like other people do.
    nanny’s hanging on tight because these kids are fast. damn fast. and stronger than an ox. my son can already push me across the room when he tries. they do upset easily, and while they aren’t stupid, they just don’t have the cognizance that you and I do. hope that this enlightens some and allows you to look at “misbehaving” kids in a different light. of course, there always some that are just being little snots!

  • UsTe

    i dont think he’s happy because i think he spends more time with the nannies than with his parents
