Oscar Winner Colin Firth makes an appearance on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' on Wednesday, January 18th. Ellen surprises Colin with his Madame Tussauds wax figure all the way from London(photo attached.) Colin on his Madame Tussauds Wax Figure…. Ellen: This is a very exciting thing. You have a wax figure in London, right? Colin: Yes, we have a museum. It's legendary now, Madame Tussasuds . One of the first tourist attractions I visited I think, when I went to London. That was a big deal for me even before The Oscars. You wandered around these startlingly life sizes figures. And I remember thinking, what does to take to become one of these? And I 've just become one… Ellen: Have you seen it yet? Colin: I haven’t seen it in person. Ellen: Would you like to? Colin: Yeah…It’s a little creepy. Ellen: Would you like to see it now? Colin: No? Ellen: Yes, we flew it in from London. I have to say thank you to Madame Tussauds. They actually helped us do this… Ellen reveals that his figure is wearing the 'Ellen' Boxers. Photo (1 image)
