Not a fan of royalty
Hollywood actor Colin Firth admits that he is not a fan of the royal family as he has a problem with unelected bodies. The actor has been nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of stuttering King George VI in acclaimed royal drama The King’s Speech, while he also won a Golden Globe for the role earlier this month.
Firth recently admitted he had little knowledge of the story of the troubled monarch before taking on the job, as he is “not a royal watcher” and now he concedes the concept of the royal family makes him uncomfortable. “I think they seem nice. I really like voting. It’s one of my favourite things,” he said. “The problem is unelected bodies,” he said.
