Subscribe to Colin Firth alerts


Actor Colin Firth and his wife often make their children wear 'hand-me-down' clothes. The Academy Award winning actor and Livia Giuggioli, his wife, are more in favour of mending old and worn down clothes for their children. 11-year-old Luca and 9-year-old Matteo are supposedly happy to wear mended clothes and garments formerly belonging to their friends.

Giuggioli owns her own ethical clothing collection, and explains the choice of clothing regarding her children's clothing, by saying: ''With my kids' clothes, we do a lot of hand-me-downs with friends. I mend. I know it's easier to throw away a sock with a hole and buy a new one than mend it, but I don't do that.''

43-year-old Giuggioli also works as a film producer and has revealed that she, her 52-year-old husband and both children try to enjoy a ''pyjama weekend'' every now and again. On the occasions, Luca and Matteo watch their mother sew clothes together during the time off. Giuggioli often recycles clothes and uses second-hand material to make things like cushions, and spoke to The Sun, saying: ''The children aren't allowed to do any clubs. We don't do anything. We don't go away. The kids need to rest!''
