    Default Colin Firth: "Pensioners lust after me"

    Firth: 'Pensioners lust after me'

    Colin Firth has revealed that he is a sex symbol for pensioners.

    The actor, who famously played Mr Darcy in the BBC's adaptation of Pride And Prejudice, admitted that women as old as 103 have been known to fall under his spell.

    He told the Daily Record: "I actually find I'm increasingly lusted after by people who are collecting their state pension.

    "I was told the story of one woman in hospital diagnosed with high blood pressure who was told not to watch any more of Pride and Prejudice because seeing me on screen was getting her pulse racing. She was 103."

    The 47-year-old said he was surprised to have achieved pin-up status relatively late in his career, commenting: 'It's so utterly bizarre to think of myself as a sex symbol at this age. I have no objection to being what Americans call 'a hottie' but it certainly isn't what I'm going for at this stage of my career.

    "I guess if it had to happen, now isn't a bad time. When I was first starting, it would have been confusing. I would have had a very distorted image of myself and my power as an actor. And I would have spent the rest of my life wondering why no one was thinking of me as sexy anymore!"

    Firth is currently starring alongside Uma Thurman in romantic comedy The Accidental Husband.

    I'm still laughing.....this is entirely true....my Mum is 81 years old and she adores the guy.....a few years ago, she asked me if they still make posters....she wanted one of him.....dirty old woman.....

    ....poor guy....I cannot imagine how much fun he must have surrounded by hundreds of old women asking for his autograph and checking out his butt......

    **I've got a cramp from laughing, thank you for posting this one, Mrs.V, you've made my day**

    It's not just pensioners that lust after him.

    I love him, if I had a list of men, he would top it.

    He's 47?! I didn't realize he was getting up there, but I don't really care either. He is hot! He has that nice, funny, family man vibe (much like my other love, Hugh Laurie). The only reason I like David Boreanze (sp?) is his resemblance to Colin.

    Good to see him in the press talking. He's such a private guy we fans are starving for news.

    I love Colin Firth. He's sex-ay....

    He is nice looking. I wouldn't call him a hottie. I love him in Love Actually. PBS is doing a Jane Austen series and his P and P is showing.

    I guess its because he's NOT a total hottie that he's so hot. Its the chemistry that bleeds through the screen...intensity...charisma...

    I'll bbl.

    Ahhhh. He is hot in a normal guy way. I get it. He could be the guy next door that you watch mowing his yard through the cracks in your blinds...not that I have ever done that. I'm just saying'.

    *drool* I'm not a pensioner but he's in my laminated list, for sure! I loved him in Pride and Prejudice. I even tolerated the second Bridget Jones movie which was crap, for him.
