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.”
