Actor Colin Firth’s wife, Livia Giuggioli, an Italian movie producer and director, has confirmed she had an affair with the man she’s now accusing of stalking her and her husband.
The Firths, who’ve been together for over two decades, apparently separated for a short while a couple years back. During this time, Giuggioli began an affair with lifelongfriend and journalist Marco Brancaccia, who has launched a “frightening campaign of harassment” against the pair, who have since gotten back together, the couple’s representative said Friday.
“For obvious reasons, the Firths have never had any desire to make this matter public. A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to separate. During that time Livia briefly became involved with former friend Mr. Brancaccia. The Firths have since reunited,” a representative for the actor told HuffPost Friday in a statement.
The statement comes after reports about the allegations were made public due to leaked court documents, which possibly stem from the indictment against Brancaccia made by Italian prosecutors after the Firths lodged a harassment complaint.
“Subsequently, Mr. Brancaccia carried out a frightening campaign of harassment over several months, much of which is documented,” the statement continued. “As a consequence of his stalking, threats and refusal to desist, the legal complaint was lodged with the Italian authorities.”
The couple is based in London, but the Firths also have a home in Umbria, Italy.
Brancaccia, who works for the ANSA news agency, is now the subject of an Italian police investigation. He has denied the allegations and accused Giuggioli of fabricating the stalking claims to cover up the affair, which he says occurred between 2015 and 2016.
“We were romantically involved, she wanted to leave Colin for me,” he said in a statement to The Times published Friday morning. He added that the couple’s marriage had “been over for years.”
Brancaccia went on to claim that he only sent two WhatsApp messages to Giuggioli, as well as an email detailing the affair to Firth, who he describes as “understanding.”
“In a year she sent me hundreds of messages of love, photos and videos, even a diary,” he added.
Firth and Giuggioli share two children together Luca, 16 and Matteo, 15. The Oscar-winner also has another son, from a previous marriage to actress Meg Tilly.
Stephen King tweets 5 words about the ‘IT’ sequel, instantly goes viral
Stephen King wants you to know the second part of ‘IT’ is on the way…
“It’s not often you find yourself eagerly awaiting a fresh glimpse of a nightmare-inducing clown, but here we are.
It’s now been well over a year since Andrés Muschietti’s IT adaptation giggled its way into theatres, before going on to smash the previous record for highest-grossing U.S. box office horror movie. Since then, we’ve had some good — if slightly far-off sounding — news: IT Chapter Two will be coming to theatres on 6 Sept. 2019.
Okay, so that may still be nine months away, but — judging by Stephen King’s recent tweet — we may be due a clown-themed surprise earlier than expected.
IT CHAPTER 2 is coming.
— Stephen King (@StephenKing) December 4, 2018
So, what exactly does that mean, then?
Well, if we had to guess, it seems likely that King has recently seen some promotional material relating to the film — possibly an image, or maybe even some early footage. Perhaps something that we may get to see ourselves before too long.
It certainly feels like we’re overdue some Pennywise…
Feels like it’s been 27 years.”

Zac Efron just shared a new photo of himself as serial killer Ted Bundy
“The last time we saw our favourite teen heartthrob Zac Efron, he was prancing around the stage in The Greatest Showman. But in his next movie, Zefron is taking it in a whole other direction.
The former High School Musical and Baywatch star just shared a new photo of himself in the upcoming movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, where he portrays infamous American serial killer Ted Bundy.
Efron shared a photo of what appears to be Bundy in a courtroom, captioned “Ready for Sundance!”
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is set to premiere at the film festival in January 2019.
The movie tells the story of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins (daughter of Phil).
Real-life Ted Bundy murdered at least 30 women between 1973 and 1978. He was sentenced to death and died in the electric chair in the state of Florida in 1989.
If Zefron is as good at acting like a complete psychopath as he is at dancing, singing, and basketball, this movie’s bound to be good.”
‘Game of Thrones’ filmed fake scenes to keep Season 8 secrets
“The secrets of the realm must always be protected, which is why Game of Thrones Season 8 filmed fake scenes to mislead spies and sleuths who are after the final season’s secrets.
Director David Nutter confirmed to Huffington Post that he had in fact filmed scenes he knew were fake.
Actress Sophie Turner previously brought up such measures in October, along with on-set “drone killers,” fake script titles, and more.
“Sometimes there were paparazzi in amazing places on construction cranes and all kinds of crazy places, to try to get a point of view of things,” Nutter told HuffPo.
“They were all over, everywhere, trying to get in on what was happening. But it was definitely a situation where there was no paper on the set,” he continued. “[The production team] wanted to make sure nobody knew what was happening, and they went to the nth degree, like they do on the show in general. They basically take it to the point where it’s like the Gestapo. It’s tough to get answers.”
Though these lengths sound extreme, Nutter seems confident they’ll be worth it in the end……………………………..”
