  • If British heart-throb Colin Firth is your cup of tea, then you’d better take action, as Mr. Darcy is up for grabs. The Academy Award-winning actor has announced an auction, with the highest bidder in for a truly kingly reward.
  • Rachel Weisz Hops Aboard The Railway Man With Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvin
  • On the DVD audio commentary for "Love Actually," Hugh Grant continuously mocks the looks, age, acting abilities, and alleged vanity of Firth (his sometimes on-screen rival), eventually encouraging his fellow-commentators writer/director Richard Curtis, and co-stars Bill Nighy and Thomas Sangster to join in on the mocking. Firth appears to have taken these comments in good nature and said that he and Grant seem to have a "Bette Davis-Joan Crawford" kind of relationship.
  • According to Colin Firth, when he was first offered the role of Darcy, his brother incredulously remarked, "Darcy? But isn't he supposed to be sexy?"
  • Although he usually gets along quite well with other actors, he had a well-publicized verbal feud with Rupert Everett, although the source of this tension is not known.
