Colin Firth's wife, Livia, doesn't believe his Best Actor win at last February's Oscars ceremony will change their life.
The 50-year-old star picked up the coveted Best Actor statue for playing a British monarch with a stammering problem in “The King's Speech,” and despite Firth's triumph, his wife insists they will continue to lead a normal life.
Livia says, "We're not moving to Hollywood, we're going back home and he's still the man I married. He'll still put the bins out and leave his socks on the floor. It's just now he has an Oscar and that is amazing. Our plan is to rest, go home, be happy. And we'll be back next year when Colin will present an award."
For his part, Firth reveals he felt the British public's support when he won the Best Actor Oscar. He shares he forgot about the speech he had planned when he took to the stage to accept the accolade but says the backing of his countrymen helped him through. He relates, "I actually wrote a speech and forgot it. And that was when it came to me, that support at home. I felt it - it was very important to me."
