Richard Armitage 30 day challenge
12.) Q: something about him you don’t like
A: the possibility that he could stray
I don’t think that everything about Richard Armitage is all unicorns and rainbows. The less than satisfactory things are what make him more human to me, so I don’t really go on about them. I seem to be missing that nagging gene that gets credited to so many women.
If forced to pick something about Richard Armitage that I don’t like though, it would be the cheating thing.
Richard was away shooting Robin Hood at the time he mentioned this possibility, in a relationship that he deemed fragile. He thought he may be in love, but feared that future job-related separations could prove damaging. He talked about lust, and how it seemed more difficult for men not to give in to the urgings, etc.
I think this was probably the first time Richard was faced with that special kind of attention that people in his line of work receive.
Maybe the thought that he could be in love but was afraid it wouldn’t last, factored in too. Fight or Flight.
There was also a later comment about not having a girlfriend at the moment, but never being short a date. Richard Armitage: playboy?
I don’t really think that’s the case anymore, if it ever was. What we have seen of his personality and character doesn’t seem to match up with that image.
He could still never be short a date, but that statement seems more like a “don’t feel sorry for me, I’m not exactly lonely” type of deal.
at least, that’s what I tell myself…
