Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt, 20-Year Age Difference

Sugar Daddy Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt

Sugar Daddy Stanley Tucci and Felicity BluntStan­ley Tucci had his first brush with fame in 1982 when a friend’s mother helped secure him a role as a sol­dier in a Broad­way play. Two years later, he landed his first movie role play­ing a mob sol­dier in Prizzi’s Honor. Not only did he score more film roles, but Tucci also moved to tele­vi­sion with recur­ring roles on the series Miami Vice, Wiseguy, Mur­der One, Bull, 3 lbs., and ER.

To date, Tucci has starred in over 100 projects, many of which have gar­nered crit­i­cal praise. The actor has earned one Oscar nom­i­na­tion for his por­trayal of a pedophile and ser­ial killer in the 2009 film The Lovely Bones, a role that earned sev­eral other notable awards. Tucci has also won two Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, among a slew of other nominations.

After the suc­cess of Tucci’s recent films—like The Hunger Games, Mar­gin Call, and Cap­tain Amer­ica: The First Avenger—the offers have con­tin­ued to pour in and don’t seem to be slow­ing down any­time soon. He’s got nine titles slated for release in late 2013 into 2014.

Although Tucci often plays vil­lain­ous roles on the screen, he’s been known to be a lov­ing fam­ily man in real life. Tucci got mar­ried in 1995 to Kathryn Louise Spath. The cou­ple had three chil­dren together and was hap­pily mar­ried, until she lost her bat­tle against breast can­cer in 2009. “My wife was an extra­or­di­nary per­son who showed us all what great strength is,” the actor later told The New York Post. After his wife’s death, Tucci was forced to take on his tough­est role yet—a real-life sin­gle father.

In 2011, Tucci found love once again, cour­tesy of his The Devil Wears Prada co-star, Emily Blunt. The actress intro­duced him to her sis­ter, Felic­ity, and the two hit it off. Even with the 20-year age dif­fer­ence, Tucci found that he had a lot in com­mon with Blunt. For exam­ple, because they both loved food, they spent their first date pluck­ing pheas­ants at a Not­ting Hill restaurant—it sealed the deal.

Although Tucci was get­ting back on his feet, it report­edly wasn’t easy for him to move on from his wife’s death. “It hasn’t been easy for him get­ting into a new rela­tion­ship,” admit­ted a source close to Blunt. “But Felic­ity is a lovely per­son and very warm and comforting.”

Tucci pro­posed to Blunt in Octo­ber 2011 and the celebrity cou­ple secretly tied the knot in the sum­mer of 2012, although they threw a star-studded wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion in Lon­don a few months later.

    Looks like he traded beauty for age. Some men don’t care if a girl is mean or ugly, they just want to brag about her youth.
