30 Days of Richard Armitage-Day 14

A favorite personal quote:

I think one of the first Richard Armitage interviews I read was the “My First Million” interview. In that interview they asked him what he would do if he had a million pounds at his disposal. And as I read his response, I remember thinking, “Wow, how generous a thought is that!” So, here is his response to that question–one of my favorite personal quotes:

I would buy a ski chalet in the French Alps. I wouldn’t rent it out but would let my mates and family use it whenever they wanted. It would be brilliant, and I would load the fridge with champagne and leave the key under the mat.

And because no day would be complete without a picture of Richard Armitage and it is Guy Friday…

  1. It’s uncanny how you and I seem to share the same answers to these question. My answer was from the same interview, but a different question. I love your choice 🙂

    • I think it would be easy to not come away looking great when doing an interview about money. Richard managed to still come across as a humble guy, who thinks about other people first in this interview…I think that is why this particular interview stuck with me.

      I did get a good laugh out of your other choice too, Jeannie…when he talks about his “chat up line.” 😉

  2. Great post and wonderful Guy Graphic! RA seems so down to Earth. Sighhhh!
    Cheers! Grati ;-

    • Thanks Grati, there is just something about Guy and his gloves…so hot! He does seem down to earth, that’s part of what makes the man behind the roles so interesting.

  3. I think I could become a ski bunny!
    By the way regarding this artice, what I like about RA is the fact that he seems sensible about money. It’s probably characteristic for someone who had spent a part of his adulthood struggling to get ahead and make ends meet. He seems like a guy who would by a thoughtful gift instead of an expensive one.

    • He does seem sensible about money. What I liked about the quote I picked in particular was that he seemed to think about how he would spend the money to give joy to the people he cares about, not just himself. He does seem like the sensible type when it comes to money and I think your on to something with the thoughtful gift over an expensive gift theory. I seriously doubt he will ever join the ranks of Wesley Snipes or Nicolas Cage or any of those other Hollywood actors who have poorly managed their money.

  4. I know! It could also be connected to his upbringing. I think that if you never went without as a child (and he has stated his mother took a job to pay for his school tuition), you don’t have a tendency to go overboard.
    I volunteer to test that theory by winning the lottery. It would be NZ first class tickets for everyone, no matter where you are coming from 😉

    • I think the connection to his upbringing is probable. If you watch your parents take care with their money and if you are taught from any early age that you don’t need everything you want, that usually carries over into adulthood.

      Wouldn’t it be great to go to New Zealand!!! It has been on my bucket list since LOTR came out in theaters. If I happened to get a glimpse of a certain actor, all the better. I don’t have any desire to meet RA, but it would be fun to see him in person.
