English actor Colin Firth and his wife Livia Giuggioli have made a decision to call it quits after 22 years of marriage. "They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children", the pair announced in a statement to "Entertainment Tonight" on Friday.

"They kindly ask for privacy". There'll be no further comment'.

Colin, 59, and Livia, 50, Wednesday in 1997 and share two sons: 18-year-old Luca and 16-year-old Matteo.

Colin and Livia met in 1996 on the set of BBC drama Nostromo. Colin eventually became an Italian Citizen.

It's so much like his storyline in Love, Actually! However, that temporary split ended up having lasting consequences. During that separation, she reportedly had an affair with journalist Marco Brancacci, whom she subsequently accused of stalking her.

English actor Colin Firth and wife Livia have made a decision to call it quits after 22 years of marriage. During that time Livia briefly became involved with former friend [Marco] Brancaccia. "The Firths have since reunited", a rep said in March 2018.

"As a effect of his stalking, threats and refusal to desist, the legal complaint was lodged with the Italian authorities". I wrote one email to Colin about my relationship with Livia, which now I regret sending as she filed a complaint against me for stalking them out of fear I could go public with what she'd revealed to me about her marriage and her work.

"My 'stalking" consisted of 2 messages via WhatsApp after she ended our relationship in 2016, and an email. After all, the life of an A-list actor is typically supercharged, taking them away from their family for long stretches of time. See the ever-growing list (below)!
