At least it made for a good story. 

Colin Farrell was on Ellen yesterday to promote 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' (which he tried his best to considering the tone of the film and the fact that 'Ellen' is a daytime TV show) and in between doing his best/worst promo work and dodging innuendos about docking in ports to rendezvous with his girlfriend (who is still a mystery to the world and that's the way Farrell is keeping it), he also shared a story about his kids visiting him on set of Disney's live action remake of 'Dumbo' and it's a spectacular snapshot of the brilliant honesty of kids.

They definitely got it from their da.
