Our hearts go out to the Farrelly brothers and the rest of their family.
Director Bobby Farrelly, who co-directed Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber and the upcoming The Three Stooges lost his 20-year-old son, Jesse due to apparent overdose.
In a joint statement Bobby, wife Nancy and daughters Tiffany and Anna said:
"It is with profound sorrow that we accept the passing of our beloved Jesse following his struggle with addiction. We fully trust that he is now in the hands of our Lord. We are immeasurably grateful for the abundance of happiness and laughter he brought into our lives, and we will rejoice eternally for all the moments we got to breathe in his wondrous spirit. The family thanks you for your well wishes and kindly asks that you respect our privacy during this difficult time."
