It’s a big day tomorrow here at IWantToBeAPinUp, so a quick post for today.
Have I mentioned that I find Aidan Turner a bit attractive?
Well, I do.
I’m crushing on the so-called Sexy Dwarf hard (HARD I TELL YOU!!!).
I’m not trying to be crude when I state that I wouldn’t mind him burrowing in my Lonely Mountain…
or braiding my bushy beard…
or swinging his sword in my direction…
*insert your own innuendo*
The fangurl in me picks specific physical traits to crush over.
With Richard Armitage it’s the rear and the thunder thighs.
It’s the cheeky grin and adorable hair!
And the Irish accent… I’m a gonner…
Hey, Aidan may be sexy and he knows it, I’m shallow and I know it too 😉
For those who would like to delve deeper into the wonder that is Aidan Turner, I suggest checking out the BBC series Being Human (more here), where he plays a tormented vampire Mitchell, and Desperate Romantics where he plays the member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Talking about brooding beauty, Dean O’Gorman (Fili) took a series of photographs of some of The Hobbit cast, including Turner, where they portray Vietnam soldiers.
The pacifist in me is seriously conflicted!
Here’s how actor/photographer/painter O’Gorman explains the thought behind the shoot:
“I’m not trying to trick anybody, but I’m just trying to play with the idea of how you feel about something that is not real but is made to seem real? Movies do it all the time, but often within photography I find it’s approached with quite an obvious parody or irony, I wanted to try to be more sincere.”
If you have a moment, check out Dean’s page and the other photos from the series.
There’s also an interesting article on Dean here.
Enjoy the boys and I hope to see you here tomorrow 🙂
