Welcome back to Foolish Friday, class! I know it’s been gone a long time, but it’s taken me this long to remember what I did on Fridays. But thanks to Bare-ChestedGate, my memory jogged and we can return to our regularly scheduled objectifying. Yes!
I just read that Richard Armitage has topped 70,000 followers on Weibo. In my eminently prepared style, I have no idea what Weibo is but assume it’s popular with non-English speakers. This got me to feeling slightly wistful that our RA has truly been discovered by the world; he’s no longer the obscure actor known only by the UK and its allies (unless that 70,000 are the same people on Twitter). We can no longer think of him as our little secret (well, except me). Our boy has burst forth from his cocoon and stands ready to fly away. That bit of overwrought prose had me looking through photos of the younger RA, when he was happy to get a small part. Thankfully, the younger RA offered prime objectifying material. Let’s have a look class.
This is Himself as Lee Preston in Cold Feet. While it’s not that picture, this rarely posted shot has a lot to offer. Notice the laid back youthfulness on the cusp of a man in his prime. The smoothness of the chest and abs contrasting with the hairiness of the forearms and reminding us that he waxes. The firmness of the jawline. Although people joke about speedos, I developed a new appreciation with his. Must have been the color.
Need to run and continue production work. Your homework is to find other aspects in this picture that the world needs to know. I know you can do it.
