HE has yet to find the recipe for a lasting relationship, but at least heart-throb Colin Farrell's mum has found love after tying the knot with a famous producer.

The 37-year-old Hollywood actor looked on as his mother Rita married movie producer Joel Michaels (70).

The intimate ceremony took place at Colin's upmarket home in Los Angeles two weeks ago.

Castleknock native Colin was joined by a small number of close friends and family at the low-key celebration, including his sisters Claudine and Catherine, and brother Eamon.



Dubliner Rita separated from Colin's father Eamon a number of years ago, and recently began to spend more time in the States with her movie-star son and her grandchildren.

The newly married couple are believed to have been introduced by Claudine, who is Colin's PA.

Rita now lives on picturesque Venice Beach with Michaels, who is responsible for films such as Basic Instinct 2.
