Hollywood actor Colin Firth not a fan of royal family

London: Hollywood actor Colin Firth has admitted he is not a fan of the royal family because he has a problem with unelected bodies.

The actor is nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of stuttering King George VI in acclaimed royal drama "The King`s Speech", while he also won a Golden Globe award for the role earlier this month, reports a daily.

Firth recently admitted he had little knowledge of the story of the troubled monarch before taking on the job, as he is "not a royal watcher" and now he concedes the concept of the royal family makes him uncomfortable.

"I think they seem very nice... I really like voting. It`s one of my favourite things," he said.

"The problem for me is... unelected bodies," he added.
