Stanley Tucci said he initially "kept trying” to break things off with wife Felicity Blunt—the sister of Emily Blunt—due to their 21-year age gap: "I didn't want to feel old for the rest of my life!"

Stanley Tucci's road to romance with Felicity Blunt came with speed bumps at first.

The Devil Wears Prada star shared he was initially hesitant to date Felicity, his wife of over a decade, due to their 21-year age gap.

"I kept trying to break it off," Stanley told BBC Radio's Desert Island Discs.

He later elaborated, "I'm 21 years older than she is and I didn't want to feel old for the rest of my life! But I knew that this was an incredibly special person."

What's more, Stanley noted he was "afraid to get into a relationship" with Felicity following the death of his first wife, Kate Tucci, in 2009.
