He looks pretty nice to me!

Now he's being scary!

So do me a favour and stop being so darn modest all the time. Yes, it is very sweet, and it's one of the main reasons I grew to think you were so wonderful (as a real person), but it won't be so great for your future career if you don't learn to talk yourself up a bit more!
He's So Shy / video by angieklong
For instance, the second (annoying) interview on the red carpet in Hollywood for the Captain America debut, the interviewer asks him about the star Chris Evans. Richard was very effusive in his praise for the actor, but totally missed his chance to put in a word for himself. The reporter really had no idea who he was (other than a British actor) but she didn't even try to draw him out but asked him lame questions about the film and then about the London Olympics!!
The point I am trying to make here, is he doesn't need to be so self-effacing. In fact. I think it is actually more about his good manners and upbringing than his actual view of himself. This article seems to agree that perhaps some seemingly shy people are more confident than they seem. I love the good manners, but geez! Richard should toot his own horn a bit sometimes!
But even if he doesn't (start tooting) Team Richard here will continue to trumpet his talents from the rooftops (or into cyberspace anyway)! :)
