Stanley Tucci is somewhat disturbed by his popularity as a sex symbol.

The IS Searching for Italy The 61-year-old host says that while he’s thrilled with the overwhelming love and support he’s getting from fans, he’s also a bit dubious about it.

“My wife thinks it’s funny and I’m very flattered,” said Tucci the Guardian. “I don’t get it but I’m happy. Who wouldn’t be happy? Hey, it took a long time.”

Tucci is married to literary agent Felicity Blunt, his sister The IS Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily Blunt.

Over the weekend, Tucci showed his followers another example of why his social media is loved when he posted a video of himself trying to fix his broken dishwasher. With a friend and his wife operating the camera, the actor tried to unclog the machine by sucking out the liquid with a turkey baster.

“Wild Friday Night,” he captioned the video, adding a wrench and a vomit face emoji.

“There’s probably a piece of glass broken,” Tucci can be heard explaining after trying to fix the machine. Wearing an apron over his navy sweater and jeans, he expressed his disgust at the clogged contraption. “That’s gross.”

“This is a wild Friday night,” Blunt can be heard saying from behind the camera.

Back in March, Tucci spoke more deeply about the love he receives from fans.

“Who goes, ‘I feel terrible about that’? People who think I’m sexy? How terrible,” he said People. “It’s great. I can’t get it, but I’m very happy.”

After many years in the business as an actor, Tucci became a superstar back in 2020, after posting a video of himself creating a Negroni cocktail on Instagram. Suddenly, his number of followers skyrocketed. Best of all, the popularity boost came by showing exactly who he is behind the scenes.

“It changed my life completely,” Tucci continued. “I just had to be myself.”

The IS Big night However, stars face their share of challenges. In 2017, he was diagnosed with cancer at the base of his tongue. Although he is cancer-free these days, he says he could not have made it through the struggle without the “attention, affection and encouragement” of his wife.

The couple have two children, Emilia and Matteo, as well as three older children Tucci, Isabel, Nicolo and Camilla. Tucci lost his first wife, Kate Spath-Tucci, to breast cancer back in 2009.

Last year, the actor said CBS Sunday Morning that sadness changes as time goes on.

“You don’t stop grieving. You don’t stop grieving,” Tucci said. “And it’s still hard after 11 years, it’s still hard, and it’s always going to be hard. But you can’t let it – and she wouldn’t want any of us – sort of, wallow in that sadness and let it take over our lives. She wouldn’t want that. She wasn’t like that.”
