Oxfam's Fair Trade Coffee Campaign
September 2002

Colin Firth has joined up to help launch Oxfam's call for a fairer deal for the world's 25 million impoverished coffee farmers. His support for Oxfam's coffee campaign stems from his belief that consumers should know the true story behind their cups of coffee. 

"The coffee shop is a dominant feature of the high street; we take it for granted. But the farmers who grow the beans that make the coffee we drink live in destitution; it is the big companies which are making the profits."

"It can be difficult to see what we can do about such a huge global problem.  What should you do? For a start, you can buy Fair Trade coffee.  You can also talk to your friends about the issue.  If people know about it it'll make a great deal of difference.  The first choice is that people support the campaign, wear the t-shirt and buy Fair Trade coffee to drink at home."

www.hellomagazine.com's Most Attractive Stars of 2002
January 2003

Film stars Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth have been selected by www.hellomagazine.com readers as the most attractive celebrities of 2002.

Nearly 100,000 votes were logged in the on-line poll.

Bridget Jones's Diary star Colin Firth was a runaway winner for Most Attractive Man, as he beat fellow hunks ranging from David Beckham to Russell Crowe. With one out of five voters choosing the heart-throb—who became an instant sex symbol as Mr Darcy in 1995's Pride and Prejudice—he easily pipped his closest rival to the post.
