I heard from Charlotte Hawkins via Twitter the other day and she greatly admires the lovely background photo of our Richard. Obviously, it is a favorite of mine. He looks so suave and handsome in his hot pink shirt, its hue bringing out the color of that tempting lower lip. There is a slight intriguing furrow in his brow, lush lashes attracted displayed on those downcast eyes as he adjusts his tie with his beautiful hand (honestly. How can one human being have so many attractive physical features?)
And there’s the beard. Charlotte loves the beard, as do many of us. I think even some of the Anti-Beard Contingent have grown fond of the Bearded Beauty. Honestly, I love Richard’s looks in every phase: long hair, medium, short, clean-shaven, stubble, light and heavy and now the beard. I’ve gotten so accustomed to him wearing those whiskers it will be an adjustment to see him clean-shaven/stubbled again, as if meeting an old and long unseen friend (“Why, hello, gorgeous jawline! Lovely to see you again . . .”) The man can rock so many different looks so very well.
I suspect the beard, like his darker hair color, will come and go and change as required for future roles. I confess I would be tickled pink to see him with the S3 Guy hair and his current beard. And maybe, just a teeny weeny bit of Guyliner? Masculine beauty to marvel at.
I am looking forward to seeing Mr. A on the big screen in a few months, with his flowing Thorin locks complete with those fetching little braids and his beard. He is going to be one handsome and regal dwarf king. And I am loving playing with RA’s distinctive beauty in Photoshop, including his beardy goodness. Ah, with Mr. A, it’s ALL good. Beauty and charm and that natural elegance for all seasons.
