Robert Carlyle, the star of 'Full Monty': Abandoned by her mother but happily married for 25 years and with a fortune of 10 million

Inspired by the work The witches of Salem, by Arthur Miller, Robert Carlyle (60) decided to dedicate himself to interpretation. Thus, he could exorcise a childhood marked by the absence of his mother, who left him when he was four years old, staying at his father's care. After leaving school, he began to work with him as a painter and decorator and, shortly after, he was butcher, but the acting could with everything. Twenty-five years ago he reached international fame, as well as Ewan McGregor, with Trainspotting.

Months later another protagonia came with Full Monty, one of the most talquillary films of British cinema, who narrated how several workers in crisis were taken out an extra diner as strippers. Carlyle gave life to Gaz and the other companions of him were Tom Wilinson (Gerald), Mark Addy (Dave), Hugo Speer (Guy) and Steve Huison (Lomper). The film obtained four candidates at Oscar, achieving only the best soundtrack. Now, the Farme fans can enjoy the musical, which is just released in Madrid at the Rialto Theater.

Aware of its humble origins, fame and wealth have not changed the habits of this Scottish actor based in Vancouver, which keeps leaving your pants on the ground before getting into bed, where you enjoy eating chocolate like a kid. He also loves to do outdoor yoga, get lost in unknown places, music as a relaxing method.

He also continues to feel the same passion for his wife, Anastasia Shirley, an American makeup to which he met during the filming of the Cracker series. He married her in 1997, in Skibo Castle, the same place where Madonna gave himself "yes, I want" with the director Guy Ritchie.

This unbreakable marriage has three children, AVA (19) and two of 17 and 15. The three maintain a practically non-existent profile in the press, since their parents have been responsible for leading a life as normal as possible alien to the flashes. About to celebrate their silver weddings, Robert Carlyle continues saying that Anastasia is the best gift that life has given him, since he has given him stability, calm and happiness.

His other love is his native Scotland, especially from the Highlands, where he finds the necessary isolation to find himself. Therefore, he is also a great admirer of the deceased Sean Connery; The progenitor of him took him as a child to see all the movies of him. "He was my absolute hero, the one who made me be even more proud of being Scottish," he declared a few years ago. Together with him he lived one of the most unforgettable moments of his race, when he witnessed him as a member of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) granted in 1999.

Avid soccer follower, among his most precious possessions figure a shirt signed by Pelé; If he had to choose a superpower he would love to have an idiot detector; What more detests from the personality of him is laziness and what he likes least about others is stupidity. With a fortune of almost 10 million euros, the Carlyle have not been uploaded to the head.
