I just came across a post on another blog that expresses my sentiments exactly. Richard Armitage has a huge fan base of women who has created a persona that has him so high up on a pedestal. Now you all know how much I ADORE Richard Armitage. Besides being a very talented actor (and HANDSOME), I also think he is a very decent, kind and good natured man. I would also say that Richard is very humble. I love the English gentleman in him. However, I do not sit here thinking that he is some perfect godlike man that I should worship. I read all the time comments from other women who seem to think that Richard is a demure victim of his own chosen career path. Richard is a grown over forty year old man in control of his own life.
Anyway, I am reblogging this post by Me, My Thoughts and Richard Armitage because I think it is time for someone to finally say what needs to be said and it was well stated here.
