RA Sunday SmoRgAsbord: Rich is a treasure

Standard

Oh, Richard, what a lovely fellow you are. Looking so sharp in your new outfits–wearing them instead of them wearing you, as Servetus might say–looking polished and confident, exuding good humor and that thoughtfulness that never fails to impress me. You seem to grow more handsome by the day, and yet remain that modest and humble boy-next-door sort we all adore so much.

I would say you are a right old treasure, my dear Richard.

The Hottie in the Hood(ie)

Standard

I can’t believe how much I have fallen for a hoodie. Because frankly, I’ve been associating hoodies with Hoodie aka Forestboy aka Robin, who was clearly NOT my personal hero in RH. Far from it.

And yet, when Richard Armitage showed up earlier this week on TODAY with Hoda and Kathie Lee in a black hoodie/leather jacket ensemble, I was practically salivating yet again. He looked so young, hip–and dead sexy. The all-black ensemble brought back memories of Lucas and Sir Guy. I never mind those kinds of memories.

And I don’t object at all to the fact they did a photo shoot of him in the same outfit. Nope, not at all.

Charisma, Affability, Integrity: That’s Our Richard

Standard

Richard Armitage is an unusual actor . . . a man of integrity on and offscreen . . . he took the time to get to know all of us . . . we really would have followed him into war.

Here’s a link to the red carpet interview with Brophy and other cast members (no Richard) in which he pays RA this lovely compliment. It starts at the 3:30 mark.

I think a young actor could do a lot worse than emulating the way Richard Armitage lives his life.

Richard Armitage, you’re a beaut, and I mean in much more than just the outward sense. You are kind, conscientious, good-humored, sensitive, hard-working, generous, polite and well-mannered, along with all that talent and intelligence and charisma to spare. You even have a naughty side.

I’d say you are a lovely, delightful human being inside and out.  You’ve amazed me during this worldwide press tour, handling the madness with such grace and aplomb, always remaining the gentleman, and looking absolutely every inch the movie star as you did it all. You can’t see or hear me, but here I am, giving you a standing ovation.

Revisiting that Glamour RA

Standard

How can I find watching a man roll up his sleeves or ties his shoelashes over and over again so– fascinating? Because it’s Richard Armitage, of course. Enjoy these gifs is4spunk reblogged from chibihobbit on tumblr.
