'Before I Go To Sleep' actor, Colin Firth has admitted to going through a 25-year long midlife crisis

Colin Firth has been going through his midlife crisis for more than two decades.

The 'Before I Go To Sleep' actor has admitted to enjoying a prolonged midlife crisis.

Talking to GQ magazine he joked: "My midlife crisis has been going on about 25 years.

"I haven't accepted that it's anything other than midlife, it will probably go on for another 25 years.

The 53-year-old star has just finished filming scenes for his action-packed role in the film, 'Freebird', which required hours of high intensity work outs with personal trainers.

When asked how it felt to prepare for the role, Colin shared: "There was this strange paradox. How can I feel more active and fitter than I've ever been when I'm supposed to be embracing my deterioration?"

The actor also emphasized that he never worries about where his next role will come from, although he did admit that he cares about the quality of the films he works on.

He told the magazine: "I don't think I've ever hit a point where I thought, 'Where's the next job coming from?' I've hit the point frequently where I thought, 'Where's the next good job coming from?' I think dissatisfaction is ever present."
