Dear Robert Downey Jr.,

I just wanted to drop you a line because I have a few things I need to say. Mostly because you've been on my mind for the last little while. With the release of Iron Man, your GQ interview, the upcoming Tropical Thunder, it would be a little hard not to think about you and I have to say that I'm really excited to have so many excellent reasons to.
I've only just got back from finally seeing Iron man, by the way. It was fabulous. More than fabulous. I honestly can't even think of a word to adequately describe how awesome it was. I was never a huge Iron Man fan. I mean, I've read them, sure. But he was never one of my favourites. Now I'm starting to feel like that's going to change. You made me love Tony Stark, faults and all. You made him someone I could love. That kind of leads me to what I wanted to say.
You're wonderful, you know that? Really. You're a fantastic actor. Absolutely one of the best. (And I'm not one for saccharine flattery.)
I remember very well watching Chaplin as a child and being absolutely captivated by it. Even more recently I felt that same sense of captivation, the same sympathy, the same connection watching Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang. You give the characters you play such a humanity that it's hard not to be sucked in by them.
So I'd like to say that I, for one, am so very happy to see you again. I wish only the best for you.
I know the opinion of a very unknown blogger carries, well, no weight at all but I really do think you're something special.



PS - I know I'm not the first to say it and I surely won't be the last, but you have THE most incredible eyes. (Sorry, I just had to say it.)

Excuse me.
I didn't mean to walk in on you two.

I'll, uh...
I'll be over here, admiring all the sharp implements hanging on the wall.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is one of the most underrated movies of the last 30 years.

Is it wrong I kinda wish I was the one that fixed him?

Janna - Don't worry, I think we're all done here.

Fabs - AGREED! I've been saying that since the first time I saw it. (and why am I not surprised that you liked it too?)

Robin - No, because then I'd be wrong too and we all know that never happens.

Robin said...

Or we could just be wrong together :D Which of course is so wrong that it's right.

Gwenhwyfar said...

I like the way you think.
