Hope Springs Premiere
London, April 28, 2003
Leicester Square were not disappointed
at Colin's arrival for the premiere of Hope Springs. Colin greeted his
fans, posing for photos, signing autographs and even talking on their
(a la Tom Cruise). He and Minnie Driver made a sensational
at the star-studded premiere, which attracted the likes of former
Kristen Scott Thomas and current co-star Mena Suvari (Trauma).
Perry and Hank Azaria, co-starring with Minnie in the West End, brought
some Hollywod glitter to the event.
While Colin looked to be thoroughly enjoying the
red carpet, he told [Hello!] that stardom is not without its pitfalls.
Ever since Bridget Jones's Diary shoping has apparently become quite a
headache for the actor. "There I am in the supermarket queue with my
when I see people looking at me and they just start to laugh," he
"There was this one bloke who actually got on his mobile. I could hear
him saying 'yeah, and he's got toilet rolls'. What do they think I do?"

PEN's tribute to Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's The Leopard was
a sold-out event and considered the most successful ever, according to
the literary organization.. Held at the Italian Cultural Institute in
Square, the program featured Colin Firth's expertly delivered readings
from The Leopard, which were interspersed between biographical
from Lampedusa's biographer David Gilmour and the novelist Edna
own impressions of the novel.
A lovely wine reception capped the evening, at which many of Colin's fans were able to meet with him. PEN described the evening as "a delight for the mind and senses."
