Talented and gorgeous British actor Richard Armitage and his fellow Hobbit colleagues (image at right of RA with High Commissioner Vicki Treadell and fellow actor Graham McTavish) were out in support of Martin Freeman’s new end of the world film, “The World’s End” at its premiere in New Zealand last weekend. Nice of them to do that–especially since Richard Armitage’s fans have been clamoring for news and pictures of him.
In the picture above taken at TWE premiere, Richard Armitage–also known as the fiercely regal and courageous Dwarf King Thorin Oakenshield (image right) in The Hobbit films–beams a superstar smile at one lady interviewer at the premiere. Images courtesy of RichardArmitageNet.
Well, she is a lovely lady. So who can blame RA for his smile? She must be a welcome respite from his days of hairy dirty sweaty smelly Dwarf battle scenes (RA as Thorin at left).
Besides, Richard Armitage is such a delicious flirt with the ladies who interview him. Ha! Remember RA flirting with Kathi Lee and Hoda in NYC at the Today show? How about dipping Marilyn Denis on her talk show in Toronto, Canada?
And dare I point out that this lady interviewer above is nearly as tall as the 6 ft 2.5 inch tall Richard Armitage is–or she is wearing heels and standing on a box. Ha! It must be nice for RA to be able to look into a lady’s eyes without him having to scrunch down to do so.
And being vertically challenged myself and having a tall hubby–I am 5 ft 2.5 inches tall on a good day and my hubby is 6 ft 4 inches tall–I can appreciate not having to need to strain to reach one’s love partner to kiss them. Remember, this blog is titled “Something About Love”. Ha! Of course, as I often say, everyone is the same height lying down. *wink*
And back to my point about RA flirting with his lady interviewers, this little interview clip below not only demonstrates Richard Armitage’s flirty ways, but also his giggly sense of humor at times. Richard Armitage is just so sexy when he is giggly. *THUD*
