Firth Fears The Skirt
British actor Colin Firth is terrified of getting his legs out in upcoming Roman epic THE LAST LEGION, because he fears they will ruin his sexy image.
The GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING star is no stranger to period costume, but the idea of a Roman skirt is more than he can bear.
Firth, 45, says, "Whether you have the build or not, you can be killed in a costume.
"Russell Crowe didn't look ridiculous, but even if you have the most incredible physique there is still a danger of looking comical flaunting it in a skirt. You might become some sort of cheesy erotic fantasy.
"It is dangerous if you have beautiful legs and dangerous if you have legs like pipe cleaners. I can leave you to guess which applies to me."
