Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

I agree with him on the single sex schools bit! I went to one, too and as a result was quite shy around boys - my first serious relationship was with someone, frankly not very nice, because I didn't think I could do better - and even now I'm older and settled, I can still feel very shy around Men that I don't know very well
I've got to be really honest and say that I absolutely hate the idea of boarding schools, too - thankfully I never went to one of those!
Bless his heart - I so hope he finds someone really lovely - or already has!!

Maybe not ladykiller as such but that bugger sure has made a lot of ovaries burst into flames.

No.  But he sure does kill us everyday.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png
   

The touch of shyness just makes us love him more.

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

It's that humility, that bashfulness, that slight uncertainty that ive fallen for.

He's so self-deprecating, and not vain in the slightest, hence his ease with goofing around.

I'm sure he has faults but I'm struggling to find them....

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

The latest things that have attracted me more to Benedict are things I've read/seen in
inteviews/speeches.
I love that he's so close to his family.
I love the fact that he admits he contradicts himself in interviews all the time...as I certainly notice him doing that!
The fact too that he seemed to hint he knows he sometines hasn't always been nice to people!
His only obvious fault to me is the smoking.

His parents obviously raised him right.

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

I love the fact that even though he was raised *as some might say* with a silver spoon ie boarding school, famous parents, etc.

He is so down to earth and a huge goofball.

What are you referring to as Magnussen's debut? The first thing I thought of was something about Rupert Murdoch...

I love seeing his parents, they make me smile every time, they seem so lovely! I love that his background (family, friends) seems all nice and down to earth, and yes, he obviously had a really good upbringing I like that too.
I also like that he is quite self-conscious at times, meaning he is quite aware of his own faults and actually admits to them.

I don't mind the smoking too much to be honest. As long as someone isn't a chain smoker I'm not really bothered.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Silly boy.

Yup! Like Clare already said I was talking about a Danish F1 racer called Kevin Magnussen... which is a bit funny! 

The Danish media has really let me down though... they even showed footage of the podium, and guess what? Our Ben was not even in it! Has he done something against Denmark I'm not aware of??


... And I just love about that he knows how to behave right, how to stand correctly, what to say and yet sometimes he's just a goofball!

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

Just read the BA interview and wondered when this was written. They mention Benedict being slim but trying to bulk up for Blood Mountain. I thought this film was definitely not going to happen.

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

Yeah that jumped out to me too Susi! The interview was in February before elementary. He said it wasn't happening at the cabin pressure thing, small timeframes eh?

I wonder....

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

Yes, he looks quite slim at the moment. I suppose BM is definitely not going to happen and the information somehow got mixed up. 
I wonder when we will get some information about his next ACTING plans (apart from F1, awards and cons).

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

It's funny I don't think he looks slim, i do think he looks lean. As in he's not got a lot of body fat on him, it's all muscle.....

But what for I wonder??

He hasn't done any proper acting for months!

Re: Let's talk all things lovely about Ben...

Well, crawling around in the Amazon you do not get very bulky. So it might be this. But there is so little information about his plans. And about why Hamlet got postponed. When I read that the next Bond will start filming in October I got some ideas …
