"I would rather just do the things I want to do."

Stanley Oliver Tucci Jr. (born November 11, 1960 in Peekskill, New York) is an American actor, writer, film producer and director, best known for his roles in The Hunger Games, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Devil Wears Prada.

He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Lovely Bones, and won a Primetime Emmy Award for his performance in Winchell.

In 1995 he married Kate Spath, with whom he had three children (along with raising Spath's two children from her previous marriage). In 2002, Tucci left Spath for Edie Falconote  and the couple separated in 2003, but following Spath's diagnosis of breast cancer in 2005, the two reconciled and would stay married until her passing in 2009.

In 2011, he became engaged to Felicity Blunt and married her in 2012, thus making him the brother-in-law to Emily Blunt (who introduced the couple) and John Krasinski. They have two children.

Starting in 2021, he starred in the CNN original series Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, a travel and food show influenced by Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.
