Stanley Tucci felt guilty about marrying Felicity Blunt after the death of his first wife.

The 'Hunger Games' actor admits he found it difficult to allow himself to find happiness again after losing Kathryn Tucci to breast cancer in 2009 after 14 years of marriage.

The 54-year-old star said: ''It was very hard to go on vacations at first, really hard to go with Felicity someplace. I felt guilty. It's horrible. You always feel guilty.''

Stanley fell for Felicity in 2010 after they met at her actress sister Emily Blunt's wedding to John Krasinski in Italy, but still keeps some photos of his late spouse.

He told The Times supplement: ''There are photographs (of Kathryn) around at home... Not that many, but I would have difficulty. And especially when we first met it was only two years after Kate died. So...''

The actor, who has three children, Isabel, Nicolo and Camilla, from his first marriage, tied the knot with Felicity, 33, in 2012 and they now have three-month-old son Matteo.

It's no surprise that Stanley, who moved to London from New York after Kathryn's death, fell in love with Felicity as he is a huge fan of British women.

He explained: ''Well, English women are a bit more relaxed than Americans. You do swear and drink more, but I like that. I find that very attractive.''
