Richard Armitage, the most wonderful, nurturing crush a girl could have.


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.

What in the world will RA be wearing this time around?


Not only is the question of late, “Where in the world is Richard Armitage?” These days, it’s also “what in the world will Richard be wearing this time around?”  Will he be rockin’ the retro? In traditional tailoring? Boyish or bold? We just have to wait and see. I told someone today I do not ever remember anticipating so eagerly what an actor would be wearing on a publicity tour!

Ilaria Urbatini has been doing a fabulous job so far (in my humble opinion) in putting Richard into fashions that fit well, flatter his coloring and his physique and also make him look like the charismatic star he is. The waxed wool suit was perfect for cutting-edge Tokyo and its dramatic premiere stage pyrotechnics. Richard–along with Tokyo–really rocked.

Tomorrow morning our globetrotter will be appearing at the unveiling of a special installation for The Hobbit at Union Station in Toronto–and it’s bright and early starting at 7 a.m. their time. (Hope he can sleep well on planes, bless his heart.) KISS 92.5 is giving away 100 tickets to Monday night’s premiere.  After that, he’ll be taping a live show with Marilyn Denis at 10 a.m. with live streaming video.http://www.marilyn.ca/About/Schedule.aspx

After THAT, he will tape another TV show, a sold-out one, so I am told, at 3:15 p.m. with the air date not yet determined.

And Monday night it appears he may be the sole Hobbit star on the red carpet for the big premiere. Which designer will he be wearing, and what sorts of materials? Any guesses as to what stylist Ilaria will choose?
