Richard’s back to making me smile…

Richard Armitage has been really busy these past few days on Twitter and Instagram and it has been making me smile.

There  was a touching thank you to everyone who supported the LOROS hospice fundraising in memory of his mum…

Over £10.000,- (!!) has been raised for the hospice that cared for Margaret Armitage in her final days! It is still possible to donate here.

He’s also been retweeting a lot of Ocean’s 8 promotional material, which I won’t repeat here. I do love the tweets with personal comments, though! He posted his inspiration for his role as Claude Becker in Ocean’s 8 (the second idea really made me laugh!) and ended with a little cheeky reference to James Corden

… and he shared some dad jokes (his own dad’s jokes) which really made me smile…RA dad jokes tweets 6-6-2018

He explained a ‘man-free’ comment in an interview on his part in the female Ocean’s 8

(the interview is here). I love how he observes in that interview:

“Calling Bullock the “driving force” behind the franchise revival, Armitage applauded Ocean’s Eight for portraying a team of women who work together rather than against each other.
“They collaborate with each other, enjoy each other, have fun with each other,” he said.
“At no point are they pitted against each other, which I think is really great and unusual, because often writers like to see women fighting with each other and bringing each other down.”

That comment makes me even more curious than ever to see Ocean’s 8 myself! I also enjoyed reading how he loves working with Julie Delpy on My Zoe right now…

Richard championing women makes me smile as does his quirky sense of humour like when he went on to connect World Ocean’s Day to the Oceans movie…

He gushed about Anne Hathaway who apparently really made him laugh…

(I’m very curious about the vegan soup thing) and yesterday he shared a tweet of himself during filming My Zoe with brown eyes…

Gotta say, those brown eyes suit him! As a girl I always wanted to have brown eyes myself, they are so much warmer than the blue-green eyes I have.

It’s been a long time since Richard has made me smile on social media, since he has showcased a bit of his humour like that, and I’ve gotta say I’ve been loving it. And Ocean’s 8 is apparently good fun too, so I’m looking forward to seeing Richard be part of that fun when I go see the movie next Wednesday! Offical release for the movie here in The Netherlands is June 21st but it’s showing as a ‘Ladies Night’ feature in several cinemas here next Wednesday…

Tickets are booked, I’m going with a friend and am very much looking forward to it!

    I’m seeking asylum at your blog as a lover of the brown eyes. 🙂
    He had to do a LOT of poker facing in this film. And he is really good at it. Can’t wait till you see it!

    1. Lol, has the criticism on brown eyes for Richard been that overwhelming? You’re more than welcome here! I’ve always been very partial to brown eyes. 😊
      The whole buzz for O8 is really getting me excited. Really looking forward to Wednesday evening!

        Every man I’ve ever loved has had brown eyes. So in a way I crush Armitage despite his blue eyes, lol. (Don’t tell anyone.) His real eyes suit him well, of course, but I’m enjoying this little hiatus from blue / grey.

        1. Wow. I’ve never thought about that. I myself have brown eyes, but thinking back, I’m not sure I’ve ever had a significant-other with brown eyes! I must be drawn to the different eye colour.

          1. Mr Esther and my kids all have blue eyes. I used to want to fall in love with a dark-haired, brown-eyed man but then fell in love with a dark-haired blue-eyed one instead… oh well, such is life. 😉

  2. I like brown eyes too and they suit him… i find it nice and am curious how it works. I generally like them, they are for me Tennant’s best feature for example really love his brown eyes. I find Richards blue/grey ones particularly interesting because they are so expressive, more than usual i would say. Wouldn’t want to change my colour though, nature puts us into our own unique puzzles that work 🙂 but totally fascinated to see him in this , now more than before admittedly

      They just take some getting used to, like the first time he appeared at The Hobbit press conference with his beard. First, I felt 😯 then 😍. He does look good in them and I enjoy David Tennant’s eyes. He can make them warm, fuzzy Brown’s or dark pinpoints with evil intent.

        Actually, it took me a second to figure out what he meant with that DNA comment and then I noticed the brown eyes and thought ‘wow, that goes nicely with his hair!’

    2. As a kid, I wanted thick long auburn hair and brown eyes. 🙂
      Nowadays, I mostly go for expression in eyes as opposed to colour, so I’m good with any colour really. Yet, brown has the advantage of seeming warm to begin with. 🙂

  3. I am going to a similar Ladies’ Night screening, but one whole week later… Very much looking forward to some easy-going entertainment with a laugh!
    BTW: Those brown eyes suit him well – no objection from mpov. 😉
