Big Brother is cooking for homecoming Colin
Big Brother is not watching you, but cooking for you. Or at least, he is for Colin Farrell... The aforementioned big bro, and Irish dance guru Eamon will be cooking Christmas dinner for Colin and the rest of the family when they fly in from Los Angeles in three weeks’ time.
Those in hungry attendance at Eamon’s swish Yuletide repast at his and husband Steven Mannion’s Sandymount home will include, among others, proud mammy Rita Farrell and her husband Joel B Michaels (she married the film producer — the man behind Basic Instinct 2 and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines — in the summer of 2013 in Colin’s house in LA), plus Eamon’s sisters Claudine (with her film director boyfriend Mark Steven Johnson) and Catherine (with husband Kevin) and their kids. This is to say nothing of Colin himself. “I’m cooking,” Eamon explained. “It is the first year in 10 that all the family are home for dinner in our house. We were supposed to be in LA last year but Ste was sick.”
The aforementioned Steven, an artist of some note, is, says Eamon, “embarking on a career as a motivational speaker”.
Eamon was equally proud, relating that “my wonderful, marvellous, powerhouse step-dad has just had his new movie, After The Wedding, announced as the opening night premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival! No one deserves it more. It is a stunningly beautiful piece of art”.
As doubtless will be Eamon’s culinary offering on Christmas Day in Sandymount.
“It will be a full traditional dinner,” Eamon revealed. “Turkey, ham and salmon for the pescatarians!”
“I’ll be doing all the cooking. Ste won’t be cooking. Ste will be doing the entertaining.”
Will there be an intermission?
The question remains: will Colin be dressing for dinner?
