It is an image few women will forget in a hurry – Colin Firth and his wet shirt as Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.
But the actor, 53, has admitted his wife was left cold by the sight of him in his ‘sodden shirt’ and breeches.
Giving an interview Firth claimed neither he nor and Livia, 44, whom he married in 1997, understood what all the fuss was about the famous ‘wet shirt’ scene.
Their adolescent sons Luca, 13, and Matteo, 11, will likely be equally unimpressed to see their father emerge from the pond, his white shirt clinging to his chest.
Reacting to the hype, Firth, said: ‘I’ve spent years trying to figure out why Mr Darcy’s fully clothed swim in his breeches and shirt caused such a sensation.
'My wife certainly wouldn't go weak at the knees if I came home in a sodden shirt.’
