Harry Potter icon Robbie Coltrane, 70, who emerged in the late 1970s when he appeared in the Comic Strip and A Kick Up the 80s, has opened up about his girlfriend of 12 years in a rare chat. The Scottish actor was previously married to sculptor Rhona Gemmell from 1999 until 2003. 

I don’t want any babies!

Robbie began by speaking about how his life is no longer as “wild” as to used to be in a new interview.

“I still like to drive my ’65 Mustang at ridiculous speeds and things like that, that’s never going to leave me, but I’m a 70-year-old man.”

Robbie then insisted: “I don’t want any babies!” while referring to the fact Mick Jagger is doing exactly that in his seventies. 

The Hagrid star has two adult children Spencer McMillan and Alice McMillan from his marriage with Rhona.

He added: “I’ve got my babies. They’re up and running.

“I have a steady girlfriend.

“We’ve been going out for 12 years now, and she’s a grown up,” he said during this week’s Radio Times.

Robbie is now currently starring in Urban Myths: Orson Welles, after having dropped out of the spotlight during a tough period with osteoarthritis and the end of his marriage.

Speaking about the time in 2016, Robbie discussed: “I’m in constant pain all day.

“I had an exploratory operation and they discovered I had no cartilage left in one of my knees. It’s completely disintegrated,” he told the Daily Mail.

Doctors told him at the time he must lose weight or risk facing life as a “cripple”.

Osteoarthritis is one of more than 100 different forms of arthritis.

The main symptoms of the condition are joint pain and stiffness as well as problems moving the joint, according to the NHS.

Symptoms can also include swelling, tenderness and hearing a grating sound when moving joints.

When Robbie attended a Harry Potter event last year, he told fans he was waiting for his knee replacement after being pictured in a wheelchair.

The film star is widely known for starring as Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter franchise.

Robbie previously starred in James Bond films GodenEye and The world is Not Enough in the 90s.

The father-of-two also appeared in Black Adder’s Christmas special episode alongside Rowan Atkinson, Stormbreaker, and Brave and Great Expectations in 2012.

Robbie and Rhona’s marriage broke down in 2003 after tying the knot in 1999.

Urban Myths: Orson Welles in Norwich airs on Sky Arts Channel on 28 October.
