Is Colin too old?
49-year-old Colin Firth
says he is flattered women find him attractive but thinks he is too old to be considered a sex symbol. “I think I’m getting a bit old for that stuff now, aren’t I? I suppose that because of the profession I’m in, I do get a certain amount of attention that I probably would not get if I had not been known. I certainly wouldn’t get the attention I get if I hadn’t been on screen,” says Colin.
Unfortunately girls, Colin says he doesn’t take any notice of other women and is kept grounded by his Italian-born wife, Livia Giuggioli. “My wife is very useful at helping me keep my feet on the ground. I’d die for any of my family. I can’t say that I’d relish the prospect of doing so. But if it came down to it, the alternative would be unbearable, wouldn’t it.” Colin has two sons with Livia, 8-year-old Luca and 6-year-old Matteo.
