Here, there or underwear.


According to THIS article,
Lucas is the character Richard has enjoyed playing the most so far.
I was surprised by that answer.  I don't know why, but I thought it would be Gisborne.
(Although, wearing layers of black leather in the summer was probably not fun.)

Now, about that Australian fan who sent Richard some underpants...
as I already mentioned HERE, I have a confession:

It was I!!! Using my Lucas-inspired super-sneaky agent skills,
I am the one who sent Richard the underpants, pretending to be an Australian.
(I even signed it "Love, Mulubinba" and provided a link to the RA Viewers Perspective blog.)
I'm a little insulted to know dearest Richie hasn't even taken those
Fruit of the Looms out of their package.  I  went to the trouble of tracking down
some limited edition adult-sized superhero briefs just for him! 
Apparently the fashion sense he says he lacks
applies to underwear too if he doesn't think they're awesome.
I'm going to have to rethink my level of admiration for the guy now.


Edit: In case you didn't know, Nat is full of it most of the time.
The only thing she has ever sent RA was that one fan letter.

Nat, this post just cracked me up! I've got to say I'm a little jealous that you sent him a gift and it got mentioned in an interview!!

Oh my God Nat...Were you really the one who sent him those underpants? Hey, at least he actually got them. I wouldn't be insulted because he receives so much stuff, it's not surprising that he doesn't open everything. Plus, maybe it's because he has no fashion sense that he doesn't find the superhero pants awesome..You know, he really is boring and would prefer just plain white or black.

He said in an article that he hates shopping and wears the clothes from his characters...You notice when he is interviewed on shows he wears outfits that Lucas would wear...

I think he just just overloaded by fans and perhaps he doesn't know how to handle it...Maybe he worries it would get out of hand...

Don't be offended..You were brave and he did notice them.

Remember...He didn't say he didn't like receiving them...Just that they were still in the package.

Peace and hugs and comfort to you. :)

Um... you guys didn't think I was serious, did you? :)

Ruth said...

HAHAHA!!! Well I was willing to accept it b/c I have not been brave enough to even send him a letter...and I'm all about supporting my fellow RA fans' efforts. :) But it did seem a a little odd...haha!!!!

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

My sense of humor must be goofy enough that people WOULD believe it was me! haha! I had to go back and make an "edit" to clarify just in case. :)

Thanks for the sweet words of comfort anyway, Violet. :) Maybe I should send some spiderman undies... or better yet, SFR ones!

Holy Cow Nat...You fooled me!! LOL..I love it..Either you are really good or I am super gullible..Oh well...I am happy to add to the laughter and merriment...:) Stick figure Richard undies would be hilarious...LOL

Skully said...

Haha! As one of the few Australians out there in a spooky blogasphere, I would like to make clear that it was not I who sent the undies either!

And when he was doing the press for "Strike Back", he said John Porter was the character he had enjoyed playing the most.

:)

It's media. He's being team player and pumping the show by pumping the character.

..Or he really throws himself into what he is doing at the moment and really does enjoy every character a lot.

Ann Marie said...

Oh Nat, you just crack me up!

Musa said...

Hey,that was Marvel underwear! If he wanted to support the team of his current project he should open the package and wear them! LOL

twinkling moon said...

@Nat, yeah, honey, you got me too!

@Musa, you're right. He should be wearing marvel underwear if he's all about wearing outfits that go with his characters :)

I just love this man even more after reading this interview. And can I just say, I want to know what was up with his tooth! I'm weird, I know. Maybe he's the one who eats too many sweets and doesn't brush his teeth afterwards, and not Keith Allen *wink*

one question: he said that BMW drivers are supposed to be idiots. I don't get it. I thought BMW drivers are grownups, I never really thought of it as a really sexy, crazy driver kind of car. Am I just completely uninformed on the stereotypes of BMW drivers? Educate me people :)

twinkling moon said...

Oh, and one more thing. Maybe Lucas is his fave character because he can wear his clothes as Richard, Think about it. What other character's wardrobe can he wear out in public? Guy's? JT's? Porter's fatigues? LOL! Lucas is the only one left. So maybe he likes Lucas for the wardrobe discount. Ah, Mr.Armitage, so pragmatic :)

esoterica2000 said...

LOL re the underoos. Trying to picture him in them now.

YAY! RA is Thorin Oakenshield in upcoming The Hobbit movie! Between Captain America and this movie, I think our dear Richard is going Hollywood fast.

pi said...

I believe some of those answers were cobbled together from other interviews. I remember them.

LOL, Nat, on the underwear. Considering his proclaimed disinterest in fashion, he wouldn't know a good pair of awesome underwear if he fell over them. Ha! He obviously does not have your great taste! ;)

If I remember correctly, RA has also talked about his love for other characters as well and how he would love to continue them, so I no longer listen to what he's saying on that score. Seriously, who does he think he's fooling?

I guess you'll have to send him some underwear for royal dwarves now :).

@twinks

If he remains consistent about clothes, I wonder what wardrobe he'll be wearing from The Hobbit! ROFLOL!

Myrtle said...

Who is the phantom underwear sender??????????? The search continues.....................

mulubinba said...

LOLOLOL!!!! It was not me either!!

... I love the underpants pic though but still mortified to think someone in Oz would even think of sending him underdaks! Were they holeproof, I wonder? Next they will be sending him budgie smugglers ..... :( (Maybe I shouldn't put ideas in anyone's head ...

MTA: Great news about Thorin!! I hope the fact that someone from down this way sends inappropriate presents won't put him off the idea of filming in our region ... if in fact, PJ can sort out the Unions.

littlevictories said...

Nat, I didn't believe it for a second. I know you wouldn't send him MARVEL underwear. I bet they were tighties that said "I heart Nat," weren't they? =)

littlevictories said...

@mulubinba What are budgie smugglers? I'm scared to Google it. LOL

Myrtle said...

LV - I am sure mulubinba will explain, but in the meantime if you want a clue, search for a picture of RA as 'Lee' from 'Coldfeet' at the swimming pool, he is wearing some :) Nice blue ones!

littlevictories said...

Ahhhhhh Now I know exactly what they are. What a hysterical expression. Thanks Mulubinba and Myrtle.

Twinkling Moon said...

@pi, after learning about his Hobbit role, I was wondering about his dwarf costume as a Richard outfit too, LOL!

littlevictories said...

@mulubinba Nice! Heehee I'm loving "smugglettes" Thanks for sharing.

The thought did occur to me that the Australian who reportedly sent Richard his undies may have sent him some little posing pouches made out of Kangaroo fur or something. I remember when I was a kid getting all sorts of goodies sent to me, made out of Kangaroo fur and the like, from family over there. Maybe the afore mentioned undies had a little pouch in them to carry his young around in? Richard really is a spoil-sport, fancy them remaining unopened, unused and unloved! Maybe if he forgets to do his washing he'll be forced to wear them out of necessity - mind you I wouldn't complain seeing him without any!
