Colin Firth - Colin Firth Meets Wax Likeness On Tv Show
Oscar winner Colin Firth came face-to-face with himself during a recent TV appearance in America when comedienne Ellen Degeneres had his new Madame Tussauds waxwork shipped in from London for her show.
The actor confessed he had yet to see his likeness - because he found the idea a "little creepy", prompting the chat show host to reveal she had it backstage.
Firth put his fears aside and looked himself in the eye, admitting it was a great honour to get waxed.
He says, "Madame Tussauds was one of the first tourist attractions I visited, I think, when I went to London. That was a big deal for me, even before the Oscars. You wandered around these startlingly lifesize figures. And I remember thinking, 'What does it take to become one of these?'"
