Colin Firth’s wife is “pushing” for him to appear in a new Bridget Jones movie.
Eco-fashionista Livia Firth is a huge fan of romantic comedies. She would love to see her husband reprise his role as dependable lawyer Mark Darcy in the popular franchise.
“I still love Sex and the City. I like romcoms but Colin hates them,” she revealed to the latest issue of UK magazine Marie Claire. “I hope he’ll do another Bridget Jones – I’m pushing for it!”
Renée Zellweger is set to reprise the title character in the third instalment, while Hugh Grant will play Mark’s archenemy, womaniser Daniel Cleaver.
It has been reported that the new movie will see Bridget and Mark struggle to have a baby. Bridget then ends up getting pregnant following a fling with her former flame Daniel.
Livia is also a huge fan of Colin’s 2009 movie A Single Man. The film was set during the ’60s and saw Colin playing an English professor struggling to cope after the sudden death of his boyfriend.
“I’ve seen it about 40 times,” she confessed. “I love everything about it – and I wouldn’t say that about everything Colin has done!”
