For the toe fans …

… with love in my heart — and no need for apologies.

And here’s the sly expression on his face to go with it:

And the cap I like most from that scene, below. I love how much physical space Mr. Armitage makes Paul take up here.

  1. Ah, yes, one of my favorite scenes. πŸ˜€ I think I worked it into that “Naughty, Naughty” video I made. Gosh, his shoulders look massive in that last one . . . and the arms.

    He really does have attractive feet under those socks, and I really am NOT a foot person. But as we established elsewhere, there really isn’t much real estate on that man I don’t like. πŸ˜‰


  2. I think you can read in those eyes of his and the expression on his face that he is being a very naughty boy in this scene and loving it! πŸ˜‰ When I enlarged the last picture, naturally taking in that powerful upper body, I also noticed how he is holding his glass of red wine. Two fingers only plus “the famous thumb” hold the upper part while the other two fingers are tucked behind the stem. I liked the way his index finger is close to the rim of the glass while his middle is almost underneath the “bowl” part. Shows off those long fingers to great advantage. Now I’LL have to go and check out other screen caps where he is drinking wine to see if this is how he normally does it, or if he does it differently when he is playing another character! πŸ™‚ Well, that’s my excuse for spending lots of time looking at even more pictures of him! πŸ˜€


  3. This is one of my favourite scenes with RA (in connection with direct physical response on my side) Look at this lascivious smile!!! ggrrrrhh. Das macht mich total kirre!! I donΒ΄t better think too much about his legs, feet and toes.(..and where they are….) Is ist possible NOT to react on him, while watching this? Thank you Servetus for bringing it up for consideration and to lionise about :-))


    • Alles mit der Ruhe πŸ™‚ Thanks, linda60. This is by way of an apology for a post I made a long time ago in which I made of fun of people who were googling their preferences. I had a conversation yesterday that made me think that my lack of interest in toes was a minority view.


  4. I like this his naughty glance. I read somewhere that the pupils of the eye widened, except the evident reaction on the change of lighting, also then, when we feel the joy and happiness and can also be the sign of erotic arousal ( and this is independent from our will πŸ˜‰ )
    so if eyes do not lie then this picture RA as Paul is even hotter πŸ™‚


    • I honestly cannot bring myself to believe that he can control his pupil dilation (an involuntary muscle reaction) πŸ™‚ So it must be lighting. Or else he really convinces himself in these performances that he’s aroused and his body then plays that out πŸ™‚


  5. Hi Servet,

    This Peter Jackson video is for her happiness!
    There Richard and his beautiful beard!
    I’m also happy!


  6. How can we thank you Ana Cris!! Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!! I just about passed out when he appeared. I had to keep pausing it and replaying and replaying!! He is so adorable!!! LOVE the hair colour and the BEARD!!! Couldn’t you just HUG him!! He still has that wee bit of shyness about him which makes him even more appealing!!


    • Yeah, I sort of went back and studied him a bit, too. πŸ˜€

      That sweet, rather boyish shyness of his just gets me every single time. I want to hug him, too. And Sir Peter.

      I wonder if RA cropped his hair shorter for it to be more comfortable under the Thorin hair? Having worn wigs a few times for costumes and knowing how hot they can be on top of my own thick head of hair, that would make sense. I do believe his cheeks have that lovely rosiness again with his natural hair color (maybe he also wanted to crop off the dye? . . .)

      And yet another black leather jacket! Which he ALWAYS rocks. *thumbs up*


      • What you said about cropping the hair for wearing it under a wig makes total sense Angieklong – as does getting rid of the dye. I noticed the pink cheeks too and they just add to how well – and healthy – he looks even though they must all be dog tired. Obviously PJ is. What a neat guy!

        And that black leather jacket?? Gorgeous!! Another Belstaff? I notice he said he is taking 4 weeks off! Now I wonder what he’ll be doing until they start again in September? πŸ™‚


        • He did look really well, didn’t he? You are right, they all have to be tired. Yet I think the fact he is living his dream must make it all a little easier, don’t you agree? Working hard doing what you love makes you a “good ” kind of tired.
          I hope he gets to enjoy himself for that month’s holiday, get some R&R.

          We know he’s done the photo shoot and interview for the magazine, and he’s done more voice work and we will perhaps see some promos for SB and CA??. . . it would be nice to see him guest on some series or do another audiobook, but my goodness, I AM selfish. I really do want him to do whatever HE wants to do. Because I know whatever he does, it will be done well. πŸ˜€


      • Meant to say also that the grey T-shirt looks like the one that he wore in SB under that linen jacket in the episode when he posed as the elicit diamond dealer. Always thought he looked really great there along with those “faded” jeans!! πŸ˜‰


        • You are right, the T looks very familiar. Well, we know he likes to recycle his wardrobes from his TV series into his everyday apparel. Oh my yes, as Dean he was one tall, cool, handsome drink of water. *thud*


  7. Um, I must say I don’t like his current look, neither the short grey hair, nor the beard. I want my Lucas and JP back. I was shocked, when I saw the video.

    Well, at least he wore a beautiful Belstaff jacket…


  8. Trust you, Angie, to notice the black leather jacket! Who does he think he is – James Dean? πŸ˜€ -but it has become a branding item. So, he has no fashion sense, but the intuition kicks in, and he knows what suits him – and is comfortable!

    Do you know, I thought of him for so long as long and lanky, though marking rather big shoulders (JT, Harrry, emaciated Lucas). It was with the NZ press conference, that it really hit just how big the actor is, and how much space he takes up – so gracefully, with a sure awareness of it, and a grace of movement that refuses to IMPOSE it on those around.

    That lovely little scene with Alona is sad, in retrospect. What might have been, if the character flaws/weaknesses of each had not worked worked destructively on the other. Unrealistic expectations, and we love to hate Alona (aka Sarah Caulfield).

    Careful all – lest we fall into foot fetishism! πŸ˜€


  9. For someone who looks so adorable & hugable in one photo and be a sly (acting) in another is an understatement for his various facial expressions. A chameleon indeed!


  10. But no love for the peaches fans? πŸ™‚


  11. Tact so overrated, but I hear you. To do a posterior post would be um, a bit indelicate. I don’t need to see BTS bare butt stuff, just some jean shots would work for me. πŸ™‚ Not that you are taking requests!
