Let’s analyze the images below:
Stand in the background much, Mr. Armitage?
And I don’t want to hear about you being the tallest guy and how the photographer always sticks you in the back!
You are an actor, a bloody good one at that!
You are a tall sexy drink of water, but you have the skills to back it up.
The only conclusion that comes to mind is, if you weren’t creating the background, with trees, walls and buildings, you’d outshine the rest of the people in the picture.
You wouldn’t do it out of vanity or false pride.
You’d do it because you have that ‘it’ factor that makes you stand out on a crowded room, melting everyone away.
It shouldn’t feel like a curse, especially not for an actor on the brink of a huge career.
Why is it that in the past couple of years you have become so bashful?
You’ve earned the right to be in the spotlight, and you’ve done it the hard way!
Step by step, with crap roles that (thankfully) got better with time.
I can’t imagine what people who get paid to take care of your career / PR are thinking.
Is there some kind of game plan?
Do they realise that by shielding you, they are in fact letting the chance of a lifetime pass you by?
How is it that they let other Hobbit actors benefit from the buzz, while you stay in the shadows.
Will you once again be creating the background for other actors during the Hobbit promotion?
I think, dearest Mr. Armitage, that it’s time to take a long hard look at what the goal is, where you’re heading and how to get there.
I could live with an explosion of RA love, I wouldn’t mind sharing you with newly enlightened Armitage fans.
I’d hate to think of you as someone who didn’t take advantage of a huge opportunity, even if it meant we could keep our little community intact!
I know other RA fans have voiced their concern, courtesy of RAConfessions.
It seems others have been pondering this issue, fresh from RAConfessions.
