Personal Quote:

"If I want my career to go on, I'm going to have to find some more Fiennes brothers! However, any similarity between them basically stops at their last name. I was in no way reminded of Ralph by working with Joe. I got on fantastically with both of them. I have huge admiration for them as actors but I couldn't compare them."

Trivia:

Colin Firth and his wife, documentary film producer Livia Giuggioli, dined with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Wills and Kate) at an ARK charity in March 2011. See more »
