Gambit

Film Appearance

Firth plays Harry Deane, a London art curator, in this comedy written by Joel and Ethan Coen and directed by Michael Hoffman. Harry, sick of his terrible boss, puts together a plan to get revenge by getting him to buy a fake Monet. He enlists PJ Puznowski, played by Cameron Diaz, to pose as the owner of the long lost painting. Co-starring Alan Rickman and Stanley Tucci.

Plunging into a bit of physical comedy and abandoning all dignity, no one can really hurt you much after you much after that, once you’ve done it.

The Talks interview

Interview

Firth gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses the way people approach beauty, grooming and getting dressed, and his regrets.

I am very bad at those questions, I’m afraid, because it means you have to go through you entire life and try to pick something and I cannot possibly do that. Because I am an Englishman I spent most of my life in a state of embarrassment, so it is not really regret. I don’t regret anything very much. Philosophically I suppose I am quite good at believing that things lead you to where you are and that’s the way it is; you live with it and what has happened in the past is unchangeable. I consider myself very lucky in my life so there is nothing I would change really – but I do have a slight tendency to cringe at some of the memories.

Wins Oscar

Oscar

Firth wins Best Actor at the 83rd Academy Awards for portraying King George VI in The King’s Speech. He speaks on post-Oscar plans.

I think I’m going to cook a lot. I don’t think I’m particularly good at it, but I’m going to inflict my cooking on anybody within range. I tend to find that’s a very good way to decompress. But I’ll probably be the only one eating it.

Oscar nomination

Firth is nominated for Best Actor at the 82nd Academy Awards for portraying George Falconer in A Single Man.

I thought I was managing my expectations, but on hearing the news I discovered new and unfamiliar vocal tones. Perhaps I should do another musical.

Mamma Mia

Film Appearance

Firth plays Harry, one of three possible fathers, in this musical comedy directed by Phyllida Lloyd. Bride-to-be Sophie tries to find her real father before her wedding day as she, her friends, and her family sing hit songs by the popular ’70s group ABBA to set the scenes. Co-starring Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Christine Baranski.

Frankly, I think the ABBA factor was the thing that got people excited, as well as the presence of people like Meryl and Pierce. But I think if you live on Skopelos and you haven’t seen Mamma Mia you’ll probably still know all the songs. So, I think people were extremely happy about the film being there.
