Colin Firth for L’Uomo Vogue Magazine

Posted on August 01, 2014

Colin-Firth-LUomo-Vogue-July-August-2014-Magazine-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Colin Firth covers the July/August 2014 issue of L’Uomo Vogue magazine in Dolce&Gabbana photographed by Francesco Carrozzini.

On choosing his roles: “Sometimes you think you have chosen a good part, and sometimes instead the package is not perfect, but if you want to work you need to do different roles. Sometimes I choose a part because I like it or know the director. Sometimes I like the story. Sometimes I do not like the other actors, although this does not happen often. Often a project takes time, as was the case for the film I’ll be doing in autumn. It took three years to arrive at the starting point. I always learn, as I did with The King’s Speech. I found myself in a world I knew nothing about, among those who suffer from stuttering.”

On fashion: “I respect fashion. I recognise it has its own language. Fashion goes to the heart of people and is a factor of socialisation. You can use perfect manners of speech and have a large vocabulary and yet say superficial things. Fashion tells stories. There are stories behind every outfit. It makes you dream. Fashion speaks to people and has a great power over people. In media terms, it has a great power.”

      A perfect end to a shitty friday

    • crash1212

      Thank you for this Uncles T and Lo.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      Those answers make him a million times sexier than all the other boys today!

      • frannyprof

        Yes! Intelligence and articulateness (is that a word?) — such turn ons!

        • Shawn EH

          and he’s acting the heck out of the shots, so he not only sounds smart, he werqs the pictures, too!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I especially love that last shot in the Dolce&Gabbana suit-delicious.

    • frannyprof

      I. Love. Him. I LOVE him. I love HIM. I. LOVE. HIM.

      • didgerdoni

        Jinx. You owe me a Coke.

      • alyce1213

        I LURVE him!

      • Wink

        I luh ya, papi.

    • didgerdoni

      I LOVE HIM. Again with the thoughtful and incisive commentary, I know. But, I LOVE HIM.

    • Sue_Asponte

      Thank you uncles.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      You have just amplified my crush a thousand fold….

    • Miss Ruth

      Christmas came early. Thanks, uncles!

    • Julie Chase

      Oh FINE. Be debonair and sexy and UNAVAILABLE. I’ll still forgive you I guess. Such is the power of The Firth.

      • 3boysful

        THAT’S who it is! I was wracking my little brain.
        ETA: This was supposed to go to Ginmaru. Thanks, Discus.

    • Ginmaru

      I am really dating myself here but to me he looks like Louis Jordan in the cover shot. Ahhhhhhh, he was so handsome in Gigi!

      • Monabel

        Handsome, yes. But smug and insipid compared with Mr. Firth.

        • Ginmaru

          No need to compare them. Both are or were handsome, smooth, debonaire gentlemen who looking gorgeous in a tux. There’s room for all in the BK world.

          • Monabel

            You are right, of course.

            • Ginmaru

              So, now that we have bonded over the ever so appealing Mr. Firth, let’s go get some tea. I’ll buy!

            • Monabel

              Brilliant!

    • kimmeister

      I never would have thought he could work a yellow lady blouse, and yet somehow he’s doing just that!

    • homespunner

      Delicious!

    • Judy_J

      “Uncle Peter, fetch me my smelling salts! I feel faint!”

    • deelup

      The last photo is straight up Mr. Burns. Eggsellent.

    • imakeart

      How stinking cute is he?

    • MilaXX

      LOVE! I have not a single complaint about the soundbites or pictures.

    • Bloggablegirl

      Dear Uncles, you have officially made not only my Friday, but my whole weekend!
      Naive me, I thought I couldn’t love him more … sigh

    • KinoEye

      I’d love to have been a fly on the wall for this shoot, obvious reasons aside. “Ok Colin, the coat’s on and we’re almost ready to go. But first, climb up on this table. And then we’re gonna blindfold you. Then we’ll need you to act like you’re playing pin the tail on the donkey. What? You mean you don’t climb on top of your tables wearing blindfolds in your spare time?… Just me, then?”

      • Kitten Mittons

        “You’re getting warmer…… warmer…. colder…..colder….COLD…..FREEZING! You’re so cold you need a coat– oh. You need another coat, then.”

      • alyce1213

        I imagine they probably said all that to him in Italian, which is even funnier.

    • Skippymom1

      Can someone please blindfold Mr. Firth and leave him on my dining room table? With the coat please.

    • trishy4301

      Oh my. You can tell he hates “modeling” but damn. The man has it.

    • Malibufire

      Delectable.

    • jkatkins

      To quote our favorite uncles, “ain’t no man like a classic man”!

    • greymain

      Colin ALWAYS hits the spot.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Am I the only one who thinks he looks awful in all these? The lighting is so unattractive, and I just don’t think that mustard yellow looks good on anyone.

      I’m a Firthophile from way, way back, but these pictures make me make my “someone just farted in the elevator” face.

      • madscntst

        Oh, thank God! I was afraid I was the only one who thought this. I’ve seen crime scene photos that were more flattering.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I like a couple of them and don’t like a couple of them. I like the way he looks in the blind man’s buff photo but the styling? Blindfolded and standing on a table isn’t working for me.

        • Marise Phillips

          yes, it’s a mixed bag for me too. love the cover for its verité aspect, crow’s feet and all — and his hair looks great in all the shots. the fit of the d&g suit is h.a.w.t.t. BUT! plenty of unflattering aspects. wow. much overbite, as the doge might say.

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        I’m with you, this is some more terrible photography. :(

      • Libster

        I think he looks jaundiced in the cover photo…

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          I hate to say this, but he looks OLD.

      • julnyes

        Yes!!! They all look off (is it a weird filter?) also all his responses seem to have been said in english, translated to italian, and then translated back to english.

    • krelnick

      He looks like Francois Truffaut on the cover!

    • saintebeuve

      He is a delight.

    • siriuslover

      I love him even more, if that were even possible.

    • li

      Swoon.

    • alyce1213

      OK, don’t laugh, because there’s no physical resemblance, but something about these shots harken back to Marcello Mastroianni – a pastiche of Italian-ness.

      • James

        Why laugh, well spotted. That first one especially.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I agree. Isn’t his wife Italian? Maybe that influence is bleeding through here.

      • Judy_S

        My first thought on looking at the cover–oh, they turned him into an Italian, a sexy older Italian, a Mastroianni.

    • marlie

      YES. Thank you, Uncles. The photo with the yellow shirt and the last one are making me very happy.

    • Lisalady161

      The Gregory Peck of my generation. God, he is perfect.

    • e jerry powell

      So on occasion it is possible to wear Dolce&Gabbana and not look like an idiot.

    • James

      He’s intelligent, articulate, sexy .. he’ll always be my dream man.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Ah it’s nice to see a more mature sausage amongst the wieners.

    • Nika E

      Fun

    • Shelby

      Be still my heart. Perfect pictures. Even more perfect interview.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      Le sigh.

    • LadyVimes

      Bless him.

    • Tricia

      Jesus he is perfection.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      A little Colin Firth makes any day better, and this goes above and beyond!

    • kittentoes

      Thank you.

    • Tanya Wade

      A blindfolded Colin Firth is a way to start the weekend. Pin the tail on….anything, CF.

      • PinkyK

        Oh ya!

    • FibonacciSequins

      Why did L’Umo choose a shot for the cover where he looks like Joe Pesci? Tsk.

      • Gatto Nero

        I wouldn’t have recognized him from the cover. I thought it was a middle-aged Italian actor looking quizzical (which they do so well).
        But in a way I appreciate that it’s counterintuitive — not the typical “pretty,” attention-getting shot.
        He’s still un bell’ uomo.

      • Mink Carlyle

        LOL! Cannot now un-see!

      • Adelaidey

        I thought Nathan Lane.

    • http://www.twitter.com/allforusophia AllForUSophia

      Great and playful photographs and don’t even get me started on the quotes. He’s a class act!

    • ashtangajunkie

      Oh ma gah. Love.

    • Sophie

      I love him. And I laughed when he said that he sometimes doesn’t like the other actors, but what can you do? He’s an amazing man.
      Not sold on the picture with the blindfold.

    • lunchcoma

      He looks great here, and this is much more interesting than the usual photoshoot, even though none of the clothes are that dramatic.

    • fursa_saida

      I…will be sacrilegious. I think he’s babbling utter nonsense. Lots of nice words that don’t actually add up to anything. This, of course, is not very important, but I scrolled down to see so many people frothing over his displayed intelligence and I mostly see skilled bullshitting. Which is a fine and proud art, believe me, I know! But I don’t see him actually saying much of anything here.

      (It is entirely possible that I have a negatively biased hangover from seeing the trailer for Woody Allen’s latest, which features him in ways that…disappoint me. SORRY.)

      • siriuslover

        I’m gonna go with negatively biased hangover ;). He actually talks like that :)

      • Gatto Nero

        I’ve seen a couple of trailers from that film that are cringe-making. So you’re not alone there.

        • alyce1213

          Emma Stone was on Letterman, who said he’d just seen the film. All he could say was that the scenery was beautiful — a couple of times. I think it was painful for her.

    • madmomma

      I love a man (and woman) who actually ages. We earned our crinkles, work them!

    • MartyBellerMask

      Just lovely, thank you so much.

    • J. Preposterice

      well I’ll just be over here watching the swimming scene from P&P over and over. in my bunk.

      above which i have pinned these pictures.

    • Kate4queen

      I love the way he looks like a real human being with laughter lines and all that. :)

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      That is your cover shot? With this great and gorgeous man? Seriously?

      All the shots are pretty terrible but that is by far the worst one.

      Is there some new drug photographers are taking that we need to BAN FOR ETERNITY? Are the magazine editors taking it as well? :((

      Two gorgeous men today – Colin Firth and Robert Pattinson, and the magazines have turned them into MEH for no reason other than an apparent lack of talent and/or a want to be trendy and make a certain kind of shot they have in their mind, that none of us actually want to see. :(

    • demidaemon

      I don’t know what to do with myself. The quotes are interesting, elucidating and thought-provoking. Magazines, more of this please.

    • unbornfawn

      Love him, love the shots, love the outfits. Thanks Uncles.

    • Man Dala

      Great editorial.

    • http://www.thirteen.org/program-content/the-downton-abbey-dish-season-4-episode-5/ Gotham Tomato

      J’adore. He is rather brilliant in every way.

    • SophieB210

      My hand literally fluttered to my heart when I saw this. My oh my!!

    • Aidan B

      Oh my God I love him.

    • LibKat

      They made Colin Firth in a suit look dorky! How is that possible?

    • Susan

      I am in love, I have always been in love and I will continue to be in love with Colin Firth. No horrible plastic surgery to make him look ridiculous. Simply a gorgeous man of a certain age who is appealing to women of all ages (with any vision and sense). And a marvelous actor to boot. He is incredible in Magic in the Moonlight. Don’t listen to any negative review. Its based on an anti-Woody Allen backlash (Woody is creepy, not nearly as creepy as Roman Polanski, but a great filmmaker). Go and see this lovely film. He looks beautiful in the vintage clothes, much better then these duds and he is in a tux in some scenes. Did you ever see a man wear a tux better than he?

    • RoseJB

      He is so dashing in that last photo.

    • Therese Bohn

      (Jaw drops) Speechless. <3 Thank You!

    • Carolina E.

      This is my sausage Friday. Man, I love this gentleman, I can stand all do his movies, eve the one you must hate… For practical aspects, this is my dream man. COLIN FIRTH, MY BODY IS READY.

    • Jimmack

      I really don’t see why some people would kill their first born for this guy. I think he looks like a high school principle. Oh well to each his own.

      • somebody blonde

        I think a lot of it has to do with nostalgia for the way he looked twenty years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I still think he looks good, but it’s definitely easier to see the appeal when you look at him in his Mr. Darcy years.

    • AlisonHendryx

      Serious question: are those his real teeth?

    • Mink Carlyle

      As a woman, can I just say how freaking unfair it is that men can still be attractive and sexy when older with wrinkles and greying hair and whatnot.

    • Clash D

      What’s with him and his hands? haha.

      • Gatto Nero

        It’s an Italian magazine?

        • Clash D

          Hnnmm..nah. He kinda looks like he’s out to grab/grope someone. It’s sooo weird.

    • cocohall

      I almost wonder if he answered the questions in Italian and he was translated back into English – his phrasing seems odd. His wife is Italian and I read an interview once where he said his storyline in Love, Actually, was not that far from the truth. To me the photos capture his playfulness – which I what I love about him – he is a terrific, intelligent actor, but he is also willing to look a bit silly.

    • ankali

      He is just the cutest.

      He looks a little Alan Alda-ish on that cover. He’s great – he seems “normal”. :)

      • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

        THAT’S who he resembles! It’s been bugging me all weekend.

    • http://www.domesticdisturbia.com/ Christi Wampler

      I love him. But did anyone else think that was Nathan Lane in the top photo?

    • smayper

      Why put a blindfold over THAT FACE?

    • sherrietee

      The cover made him look like he was trying to self-adjust a subluxation in his neck.

    • irielle

      I’ll take the one in the coat and the blindfold. Mmm!

    • Ma. Gabriella Dutari

      I’ve come back like 5 times since this was posted to stare at the pictures. I love the styling, he’s giving a strong Marcelo Mastroianni vibe.

      Bless you, Uncles, for bringing happiness into my morning.

      I love Colin FIrth. SO freaking handsome with a great smile!

      Holy Shit, I thought that was Andrew Cuomo on the cover lol.
