Darcy Role Makes MacFadyen Irresistible

British actor MATTHEW MacFADYEN is attracting so much female attention since playing heart-throb MR DARCY in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, his wife has decided to hit back.

MacFadyen became an overnight pin-up when he appeared alongside KEIRA KNIGHTLEY as JANE AUSTEN's hunky hero, but his partner KEELEY HAWES is outraged at the brazen comments she has heard about his good looks.

Hawes, 28, who is mother to MacFadyen's baby daughter MAGGIE, believes fans are untactful and unnerving.

She says, "One of the mothers at school said to me, 'I saw Pride And Prejudice. Matthew's so romantic.'

"I suddenly thought, 'Hang on you're talking about my husband.' You wouldn't go to the pub and say, 'I saw your husband last night - phwoarr.'

"Suddenly it's perfectly OK for the entire nation to say, 'Your husband's really fit and he's got nice legs.'"

If someone where to tell me how romantic my husband was, I would be a bit concerned, as he is not an international actor. If he were, I would be most flattered. However, I can imagine it would be a bit unnerving if you were not use to hearing such flattery. Perhaps this was the first time someone said something to her of this nature. I'm sure by now, she is quite use to it. Besides, Mathew is an intelligent man and has probably put her at ease regarding his loyalties.

I swear this must be the most insecure woman I have ever heard. So other women find your husband attractive, face it lady, HE IS! You should be proud of your husband's accomplishments, and if fame due to his wonderful acting and incredible good looks is in his future than you are in for some shockers. If you think a woman saying "oh your husband is romantic" is untactful wait till a woman tells you she wants to hop into bed with him and "shag" his brains out. I sure as hell would. Seems to me her real problem is her career went down the toilette and her husband's is just about to take off. I'd bet on good odds that marriage isn't going to last.

shivaangel, you are definitely rude. I think she's right to feel sensitive, she knows she's married a man who's shortly becoming a sex symbol and that's hard even if you are a strong girl. I would suggest her to be proud of him and don't worry. I've read some interviews when he talks about her and he seems to be in love. She's working in theatres, it's as worthy as doing a movie. At least in Europe, and they are European.Keeley, if you read this (but I guess not), I admire your husband as an actor and of course he's handsome, but as a fan I will always respect and defend your private life. Take the fans as a compliment to you. Even if you were not an actress and he was not Mr Darcy once, you married a man who has sex appeal and you are surely aware of that. Women would look at him anyway. Be proud he loves you and your daughter and smile to the fans. Remember that whatever the other dreams, it's just you he wants to lie in bed with, drink his coffee and hold at heart.
