First, here’s a beautiful copy direct from Warner Brothers of the promo featuring that tear-inducing hug between Bilbo and Thorin at the end.
Richard, you just keep outdoing yourself. You looked wonderful this morning in Toronto. Loved the look. Classic and classy, but with a contemporary vibe, too. A dapper English gentleman with style from the top of your handsome head to the tips of your well-shod toes.
In your interview on Marilyn Denis‘s show, you were relaxed, charming and playful. Loved the dip of the host–you do know how to make an entrance, don’t you, my dear boy?
I learned you like the word “serendipitous,” too. If the grey in your natural beard proved to be so, then my discovering you was just as serendipitous.
But what really, truly got to me was when you shared those kind words about your fandom and how supportive we are of you.
Of course we are supportive; with a classy gent who is so kind, thoughtful, modest, generous and gentle on top of all that talent and beauty, how could we not want to cheer you on every step of the way?
You give us so much through your portrayals, the way you give your characters breadth and depth and life. And you, yourself, are a gift. An extraordinarily gifted human being whose inner beauty keeps radiating out to illuminate our own lives.
If we are the loveliest, most supportive fan base an actor could have, then surely you are the most wonderful, nurturing crush any girl–or guy–could have.
That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
