Colin Farrell: First Son 'James Saved My Life'

Colin Farrell: First Son 'James Saved My Life'

Colin Farrell takes the cover of Men’s Health UK‘s September 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 36-year-old Total Recall actor had to share with the mag:

On how becoming a father changed him: “What my first son James did was allow me to care for something in this world when I couldn’t care for myself. James saved my life.”

On his son picking up his bad habits: “I’m very aware of trying to be as judicious with my language as possible. I had my kid saying ‘sh*t, sh*t’ when he spilled something the other day. At least it was an appropriate use of the word.”

On his plans for the future: “I want to be as decent and supportive a dad and friend as I can be, and to travel the world like I used to with my mind, but now with my body. I want to be inspired by what I’m able to do. Because I’m a lucky b*stard.”

    Wow, the ignorance of some people here is so BIG it’s not even funny.
    You think you know better than him when were his boys born and which one was born first? Sigh…
    James is his first son, born in 2003, and he’s the one that has Angelman syndrome. His youngest, Henry, was born in 2009.
    So get your facts straight before spreading lies around. Fools.
