Without further ado, here is Richard’s Christmas Message:
I doubt these words are going to be scrapped any time soon – there is nothing controversial in there – but just for those of you who are not on Twitter, here is the message in bigger images:
Can I just say – in the spirit of positivity and in light of the season that’s in it: Despite my anger the other day at some of the behaviour displayed by my favourite actor: he still remains my favourite actor – and one of my favourite human beings, full stop. I do not know the man. I have never met him. And I sometimes think he expresses himself unclearly. But I have no doubt he has a good heart and good intentions. I appreciate this appeal for kindness – taking into account that a gift is not about money or monetary value, but about the kindness, thought and love it represents. I am excited for Richard’s plans with his production company – and I think it is neat that he is planning to be more fan-friendly (?) in the future.
More things to say at a later date. But just one thing: I’m glad he has sent his annual message. It is nice to hear from him.
