Colin Firth ‘was once a grungy rebel with pierced ears’

Washington: ‘The King’s Speech’ superstar Colin Firth has revealed that he was once a ‘grungy’ rebel with pierced ears.

The Oscar-winning actor candidly opened up that he hasn`t always been a well-groomed Hollywood hunk.

The 50-year old actor still proudly sports scars from multiple piercings in his ears done way back in the 1970s.

"I went through a bit of a grungy phase in the seventies. I had three piercings; I was tempted at one stage to get one in my nose as well but, thankfully, never went through with it," Contactmusic quoted Firth as telling the Sunday Express.
