Colin Farrell and Retta have some very special Valentine's Day plans.
No, the movie star and Parks and Recreation funnylady aren't headed out on a romantic date (though we'd kind of love that), but they are working together to bring attention to a cause that affects them both: Angelman syndrome.
In honor of International Angelman's Day on Feb. 15, celebrities with personal connections to the disease – Farrell's son and Retta's godson both have it – are participating in a video campaign to raise awareness. Angelman syndrome, which affects one in 15,000 births, is an incurable genetic disorder that impairs children's cognitive and developmental growth, often causing seizures, balance disorders and a lack of speech.

But after returning to the show 45 lbs. lighter than she left it – for a total weight loss of 155 lbs. – the spotlight is now focused on whether Frederickson, 24, may have resorted to extreme measures to lose the additional weight in advance of the show's Tuesday finale.
