On Monday (February 14), Colin Firth paid a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss all the excitement surrounding The King’s Speech, which just picked up seven BAFTAs! And with it being Valentine’s Day and all, the 50-year-old English actor chatted some about his wife, Italian film producer Livia Giuggioli. Wasn’t his mention of her in his Golden Globes thank you speech last month just lovely?
Anyhow, Firth said it was like “a bolt to the heart” upon first meeting Giuggioli. Now that’s true love right there.
DeGeneres also extended her best wishes to Firth and his Best Actor Oscar nomination with a small gift: tuxedo boxers! Hmmm, something tells me that Firth won’t be modeling them like Ricky Gervais did with his gold shorts.
