London: Renowned British actor Colin Firth likes growing old and looking weathered in real life.

The 50-year-old actor, who has featured in movies like "A Single Man", likes growing old because he thinks he had a "boring" face when he was younger, reports contactmusic.com.

"When I was about 25, I remember looking at older actors I was working with - brilliant older actors and thinking, `I can`t wait to get a few wrinkles`," said Firth.

"I had such an utterly boring face at that age and longed for a bit of weathering and a bit of texture," he said.

However, the Oscar-nominated thespian doesn`t want to look too old, adding: "Just as long as I don`t fall apart completely."
