When they announced their separation after 22 years of marriage, Colin and his estranged wife insisted that they remain “united” in their love for their sons.
The actor, who won an Oscar in 2011 for his performance in The King’s Speech, has stayed at the £4 million family home in Chiswick, west London, while Livia has since spent much of the time in Italy.
Their divorce came after Livia, 52, admitted to having an affair with a childhood friend. Colin also has a son with Meg Tilly, his opponent in the movie Valmont.
Empire Of Light will hit UK cinemas on January 13, 2023.
