Flawless Films → The King’s Speech
“If I’m King, where’s my power? Can I form a government? Can I levy a tax, declare a war? No! And yet I am the seat of all authority. Why? Because the nation believes that when I speak, I speak for them. But I can’t speak.”
Colin: [on Mamma Mia] I think it’s one of the best things I have ever done. People expect me to apologize for it and I am completely unapologetic. Right now I would say, if you asked me the three things for which I am most proud I would say it is A Single Man, The King’s Speech and Mamma Mia.
Interviewer: How hard was it to get you to do the scene that’s used for the closing credits?
Colin: You know what, that may be the reason I did the movie.
Interviewer: You have no shame.
Colin: Yes. I’m sorry, if one thing has come out of 60 Minutes is that we have discovered, we’ve unveiled the fact that Colin Firth has no shame. I am such a drag queen. It’s one of my primary driving forces in life. You cannot dangle a spandex suit and a little bit of mascara in front of me and not just have me go weak at the knees.
