Well, we can dream, can’t we? Ha! J-Pineo and Merilyn066 tweet shared this lovely closeup of Richard Armitage from the November 2012 Wellington Premiere Press Conference (below left in hi-res). The image looks to be a bit air brushed–or RA has skin like a baby’s bottom. Ha! But it gives the portrait an ethereal quality–very sweet and adorable–certainly making him look much younger than his 41 years at the time, closer to 30 years old. Sighhh!
However I must admit that I am very fond of Richard Armitage’s crinkles and the silver in his hair in this Promo 2012 portrait (above right, hi-res). And I love that he is aging gracefully and handsomely as we can see from this portrait. I hope that he doesn’t ever do botox or anything else. He and his face are perfect, just the way they are. And with each passing year, he only gets bettah.
P.S. And here is a little graphic (right) I cooked up last Sunday for Father’s Day–and shared elsewhere–to suggest a role that RA might inhabit in thirty years or so–that of Norman Thayer in the film On Golden Pond. I can see Richard Armitage thirty years from now remaking “On Golden Pond” and portraying the gleefully exasperating Norman Thayer Junior. It would be a great role for him. Just how do I know that Richard Armitage has it in him to be cantankerous? You mean apart from RA’s riveting character portrayals to date? Well, does this feisty faced Richard Armitage in this 2012 Promo portrait next to Henry Fonda as Norman in my graphic at right) provide some evidence? Ha!
Oh and, if RA was portraying curmudgeonly Norman–and I weren’t married–I would definitely “suck face” with him. In a heart beat! Ha!
