Way Back When: Colin Firth

Colin Firth is so swoonworthy he was recently voted Britain's sexiest man. But would he have earned the title way back when? You decide.

For me 1995 Mr Darcy Colin is just perfect but I'll take him any day.

He needed P&P to bring out the best in him!

He was always a nice looking guy and after he had his teeth done, he was oh, so much more appealing and handsome. The pivotal role of Darcy in 1995 made his career soar !

I'd say Firth definitely got better as he aged. The turning point was 1995! :)

I know this is blasphemy but I have never found him attractive! Don't hit, but I try every time I watch P&P but, nothing. Whats wrong with me? I will say he is more appealing in his later years tho.

Lovely boy.

Handsome young man.

All the qualities above are pale beside the great actor and great fifty years old man.

I wouldn't say he was bad looking in the early pictures - just too young for my taste (even if he'd have been more of an appropriate age compared to me at that point, lol) - I love him as Darcy - but I do think he was hottest in "What a Girl Wants" (speaking of which - it still cracks me up that I didn't recognize Anna Chancelor the first how many times I watched it, because I assumed she reminded me of Miss Bingley because of the character, not because it was her, LOL!)

To AJSnow - there's been a lot of traditionally thought to be appealing actors whom I couldn't understand the attraction to either (mostly American I must admit - I have a real thing for British men) - so I can understand from that standpoint, even if I don't understand in this case, lol...

As they say, good things get better with age, and he certainly did.

I love him in leather pants in What A Girl Wants! Yum!

Can't say that I'd have ever turned him away :)

Eye Candy at 19 or whatever age he is, He will always be swoon worthy in my eyes...ahhhh.

I think he was beautiful when he was younger but ultimate sexiness in P&P! I'd take him whenever tho-a bit of young Firth action would be fine with me!
