With the talented British actor Richard Armitage being only three days away from the January 14th, 2020 opening of his new play Uncle Vanya at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London, England (below), we can only appreciate his generosity in taking the time and sharing two new Sexy SatuRdAy Selfies with his fans.
The first new selfie image (below) displays Richard Armitage’s lightly hirsute legs lounging beneath his much marked up Uncle Vanya script (image thanks to TeresaA)–with a tantalizing hint of a brief men’s briefs leg hem showing beneath the script. The poor man has obviously worked himself to the bone—or to the bare in this case, with his muscular legs on display–in final rehearsals. And he did not even have the energy to put his own pants back on after a dress rehearsal. I’m not complaining, mind you—just appreciating. Sighhh!
And the second new [edited by Mat Khal, Thanks to Mat for clarifying!] not a selfie image (below) goes even more bare with a discreetly towel attired Richard Armitage selfie in a traditional Russian banya sauna (steam bath)—thanks to Mat Khal for the history lesson. In portraying a randy Dr. Astrov in Uncle Vanya, Richard Armitage has obviously striven to immerse himself in the culture and traditions of the Chekhov play’s setting. And afterall, one must attend to one’s pores in cleansing away the heavy stage make-up—with a venik to massage and exfoliate his skin. Sighhh!
Finally, I cannot help but be thankful—given Richard Armitage’s seeming wish to banish his heartthrob image—that he chose to burnish it with these new selfie images. At least for this fan girl anyway (image thanks to Meryl Butler). Sighhhh! THUD! Ha!
And finally, wishing Richard Armitage and his castmates in Uncle Vanya a wonderful run! Break a leg, as the theatre saying goes!
