Did you women say you want RA in black leather?


Well, Guyday Friday is already here in some parts of the world—so . . . for your viewing pleasure (and Sir Guy just loves pleasuring you) here’s six feet two (and a half?!) inches of smokin’ hot black leather-clad testosterone. You’re welcome.

Here I am, wenches, in all my smirking,smouldering glory.

Marian . . . you know I look a damn sight better in these leathers than Forest Boy ever could.

The undisputed winner.

Click on GIF if Sir Guy is not strutting down the corridor to you . . .

Again, click if you can’t see the Divine Derriere in motion.


Oh, Richard . . . you “got me!” RA at the Arias


Thank you, Bccmee and friend, who supplied this video snippet of the Arias featuring Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage presenting the award for Album of the Year. Richard is sounding sooooo sexy (DEEP voice. Channeling Thorin?) and looking delicious back in black–and rumor has it the trousers are leather? Ohhhhhhhhh . . .



And here’s some photos that showed up taken by a lady who had a fantastic seat for the show, Erin Brown, aka Speedmouse. I believe she referred to him as “magnificent.”

I’m not worthy, I’m not worthy . . .

Still side-stepping “Hot Dwarf” issue, more fanart. Oh, you adorable boy.



Here’s another interview with Andy, Martin and Richard with dear RA cleverly side-stepping the whole “hot dwarf” issue  once more (love how Martin and Andy also chime in here). The image quality was a bit muddy on my end, but hey, you know how gorgeous he looks and you can hear him just fine. 😉  Thank you, Ali, for the link on Twitter.

And while I am at it, some more fanart from the premiere:

Oh, come on, Richard, you know you are!

Here you go: Transcript of ZM audio interview


(This is a transcript of the audio interview featured in the last post. There were a few things I couldn’t catch, either, but I think I have covered all the most important stuff. Perhaps someone from Down Under can fill in any blanks. There were three interviewers, but I couldn’t tell the two guys apart by their voices, so I simply ID any male voice other than RA’s as  “guy.”)

(guy) “And now one of the main characters is hanging out with us. Richard (mispronounces last name *sigh*) Ahm-i-tahge.”

(girl’s voice) “Welcome!”

(guy) “Richard, hello!”

Richard:Oh, yeah, there we go. (problem with mike??) How are you?”

guy: ” Not bad. You’re looking so sharp.”

Richard: “Thank you very much. Well, it was about time. I was a bit rough as that old dwarf–”

(girl) “Sexy rough. All three of us were saying that–”

Richard: (laughs)  “A bit rough and dirty.”

(girl) “Yessss.”

(guy) “We got told by a lady today, and I don’t know what part of the world she was from, but she said you were smouldering.

Is that a description that you would–”

Richard: “Well, you know what, I always imagined him as-as a kind of a dying flame that was about to be reignited, and you know you do see him running through forests–on fire, so–I don’t know.”

(girl) “Well, it’s good that you’re allowed to talk about it, ’cause we’re not!” (laughter in group)

(guy) “Yeah, we had to sign a form.” (next words I don’t understand) But that’s OK, because you’ve forgiven us!”

Richard: “You had to sign a form.”

Richard: “You’ll see it, you’ll see it, it is in the movie.”

(girl)  “No, we have seen it–”

Richard: “But you’re not allowed to talk about it.”

(girl) “We can say to you that we love that part we aren’t allowed to talk about just yet. It’s just amazing.”

Richard: “Thank you so much.”

(girl) “So tell me, what’s it like being a sex symbol.”

Richard: (laughs)  “I don’t know. You tell me!”

(guy) (yells) Owwwwwwwwwww. She just–she just clearly dished it out there!”

Richard: (being downright cheeky) “Clearly she is.”

(girl) But you are. We’ve met a lot, a lot of the fans, and they are just obsessed with you. Like when we went into the ?? in Tepapa? and they were saying, ‘Is he in there? Is Richard in there??'”And they were from all over the world–Finland, Australia, Hawaii–I mean, they’ve all come to see you.”

Richard: Well, you know what I think is because the character has these heroic ambitions. There’s that feeling of him but you know there’s a flaw in him and he’s gonna crack up in the second two movies–”

(girl) “That’s what makes him so much more . . .” (voice fades out)

Richard: “I guess so, and he’s gonna come back and redeem himself.”  (thank yous and farewells after that. Richard says “see you soon” and I think of the Cbeebies)

“I don’t know, you tell me!” Oh, Richard, you’re adorable.


If you haven’t already, you must listen to this delicious radio station soundbite of RA on The Hobbit red carpet posted at RANet. There’s his typical good humor and modesty, and I love how he (quite flirtatiously) turns a question about his sex symbol status on its head. 😉


Oh, Richard, baby. It’s not just because the character is a hero that women are drawn to him (and to YOU). And you don’t just smoulder as Thorin because he’s “a dying flame about to be reignited.” Or because he apparently runs through the forest on fire at some point (ouch!). And you ARE a sex symbol, sweetheart, modest and reluctant though you may be to admit it.

Of course, that modesty and humility just endears you all the more to us–and makes you all the more irresistible, you sharp-dressed, sexy man, you. And women (and men) all over the world know it–and many more are learning. I merely have to look at my stats to realize that.
