Still the best of friends.
Despite announcing their separation last year, Colin Firth and ex-wife Livia Giuggioli appear to be on excellent terms.
On Thursday, in honor of the Oscar winner’s 60th birthday, Livia posted a campy photo of the actor dressed in one of Elton John’s most flamboyant costumes.
Next to the photo, he wrote: “60 ° and don’t feel it. happy birthday to the best partner in crime ever (for the past 25 years and beyond) (this is when Colin stole [an] Elton John’s costume on the Kingsmen set … “
Firth married the assistant of the Italian producer turned producer Giuggioli, 51, in 1997. They share two children, Luca and Matteo. (Firth also has a son from a previous relationship with Meg Tilly).
In December 201
“Colin and Livia Firth have separated. They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children, “the couple said in a statement.” They kindly ask for privacy. There will be no further comment. “
Their breakup came nearly two years after Livia confessed to having an affair with a “childhood friend turned stalker” while the couple broke up for a short time in 2016.
“A few years ago Colin and Livia made the decision to separate in private. During that time Livia was briefly involved with a former friend [Marco] Brancaccia. The Firths have since reunited, “the couple said in a statement in March 2018.
“Subsequently, Mr. Brancaccia conducted a frightening campaign of harassment for several months, many of which are documented. For obvious reasons, the Firth never had any desire to go public with the matter.
Brancaccia, an Italian journalist, was investigated by Rome police after Giuggioli claimed he sent naked photos of her to Firth. In July 2018, he dropped the stalking charges and agreed to a private deal.
