One of the highlights of 2013 for me.
2013 was a mixed bag for me. It was personally very difficult. I had a tough job and lots of health problems. But it also included Richard Armitage. I discovered him in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey last December. It has certainly been an Unexpected Journey for me since then! I started this blog in March after obsessing over Mr. Armitage for months. I started the blog because my obsession over RA was so familiar to me. It reminded me of my former obsession over Hugh Jackman 10 years ago. I recognized that there were/are similarities between Mr. Armitage and Mr. Jackson which made me wonder why these two particular men had such a strong attraction for me. I haven’t really answered the question yet. Got kind of distracted by Armitage love, and sort of forgot about Mr. Jackman!! 2014 is coming – maybe I will be able to get back to that question!!
The Berlin premiere. He looked mah-velous!
Or maybe not. Mr. Richard Armitage continues to distract me into the New Year. He has gotten more handsome than ever. Some subtle cosmetic surgery, perhaps? I do think his nose is more handsome than ever. If he did enhance his profile, good for him! He looks stunning!!
Regarding his personal life – last year it was very important to me. Into 2014 – really don’t care. Isn’t that weird? I really cared when I started blogging whether he was in a relationship or not. Now, not so much. I love him for who he is, not who he’s with. I hope that he is happy, whatever his personal relationship situation. It was important when I first got interested in him, to know if he was in a romantic relationship. Now, I don’t care. My admiration for him has nothing to do with reality. LOL! It’s really interesting, actually. I think I felt like I might have a relationship with him really when I first got interested in him! LOL LOL LOL How crazy was that!! I felt like I identified so strongly with him that it must mean we were meant to be together. Yikes!! I got over that phase pretty quickly, thankfully!! So silly!!!
So many beautiful images of Richard Armitage in 2013!
My hope for 2014 is first of all that me and all the Armitage Army are happy and healthy and creative and courageous and loving and generous and wise and all good things. I hope the same for Richard Armitage himself and that he gets work that is fulfilling and pays well. 😀
I think that the round of interviews he has done for The Desolation of Smaug show a different aspect of him. He is so much more at ease. Such a thoughtful actor and such a childlike man. Yes, he has a silly response to many questions, but, really, wouldn’t you? I mean, answering the same questions over and over must take a toll. What’s with all the answers about being naked, though? What does that mean?? Not sure I get that joke. Although, seeing him naked…..an interesting idea. 😀
Happy New Year to all my readers. I have enjoyed blogging tremendously. It is just about to be midnight here in New Jersey. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
