A Preview of Sunday Times Article on Richard Armitage

‘I know what I am selling’

Richard Armitage is not just top Hobbit totty as Thorin, he’s almost a Hollywood star. Now he’s taking on his most challenging role to date, in The Crucible


‘I am a worker’: Richard Armitage (Francesco Guidicini)

Last night, Richard Armitage had the naked dream again. “I am in bed,” he says, “and everyone is waiting for the next moment, but I’m naked, so I can’t do it. I think ‘F*** it’, and I do it — but I’m naked.” He thinks he might have sleepwalked, looking for towels. He does not say this in a — well, the word is surely suggestive — way. He sounds anxious.

Armitage is almost a Hollywood star. He is Thorin Oakenshield, the moody and overdressed dwarf king in The Hobbit, the third instalment of which, The Battle of the Five Armies, arrives in December. He is also the leading man in the forthcoming schlock disaster movie Into the Storm, in which weather kills people while the audience eat popcorn. (Do not sneer. Philip Seymour Hoffman, the greatest actor of his generation until drugs killed him, appeared in the preposterous 1996 tornado movie Twister.)

I’m sure we will get the whole article tomorrow. Meanwhile, YES, naked Armitage dreams?? He’s certainly made it to the big time now!! 😀 😀

I am so so happy for him!!

P.S.  You can read the whole article http://did-you-make-these-bunssss.tumblr.com/post/90892426912/ra-in-the-times-again

Although, I must warn you that it’s a hating article that assumes Richard Armitage is one of “those” empty-headed celebrities the author clearly has contempt for. BE WARNED!!

    I wonder how much the anxiousness strangles him before each show? you hear stories of some of the most distinguished performers still throwing up before they go out on stage.

      That would be me for sure. I threw up before my first High School debate!! And I won the Debate medal in my graduation from 8th grade!! LOL I hope he is not like that.
