Firth goes Forth
(Mail on Sunday, Aug 15, 2004)
Wearing ridiculous clothes is no problem for 43-year-old heart-throb Colin Firth.  After all, he even managed to look sexy in that reindeer jumper in Bridget Jones's Diary.  He's clearly been let loose near the dressing-up box againhere he is at a medieval festival in Montone, Umbria.
His wife Livia, 33, above with camcorder, is Italian, and Firth is proud of the fact that sons one-year-old Matteo and three-year-old Luca are shaping up to be bilingual.

He has another son Will, 13. from a previous relationship with Canadian actress Meg Tilly, seen here with Colin.  But judging by the look on poor Will's face, dad's fooling around is all old hat.
