Colin Firth: “I Would Never Cheat”

Could Colin Firth be any more wonderful? Gorgeous, charming, fills out a suit like no other, great at his day job (have you seen him in The King’s Speech?) – Colin Firth really is the new George Clooney. And now he’s outdone himself by gushing about his wife of 15 years Livia Giuggiolo.

“Maybe it’s shallow of me to have a wife that’s so beautiful but it makes things easier. To me she’s the most beautiful woman in the world,” he told Piers Morgan last night.

He 50 year-old Oscar nominee says they are “crazy about each other” and he could never dream of cheating, despite women throwing themselves at him all the time.

“It does help to actually realise that however stunning the person who is, you know, fluttering eyelashes at you, she doesn’t do anything to match up to your wife,” he said.

‘We’ve made it 15 years together … I think that is pretty good going in Hollywood standards. And it’s going to go on forever.”

Colin met Livia, 41, in 1995 in Colombia on the set of Nostromo, where she was a production assistant. They married in Tuscany two years later and split their time between Italy and London. The loved-up couple have two sons, Luca, 10 and Matteo, seven.

So how do they maintain such a strong marriage?


“You just navigate things on a daily basis,’ says Colin. “We are crazy about each other. But the real secret is time – we have to make sure that we spend enough time together. Every relationship in life you’re going to have to take care of, there’s a marathon factor to it.”

Livia has been in the news herself lately, vowing only to wear eco-friendly fashion on the red carpet with a gown made from 11 different recycled dresses chosen for this Sunday’s Oscars ceremony.
