Can't really see the picture but this was in the Vicar of Dibley days. He appears to have had a live in girlfriend for years but it was over several years ago. Not sure he even lives in Great Britian anymore.
The live-in girlfriend is Lee Pace. Annabel Capper was his beard..
If he's bisexual, he'll go back to women for good eventually.
[R2]I absolutely have no problem with that. Lee Pace is a total babe.
He basically says (between the lines) that he's gay in his most recent interview.
[quote]Does he feel protective of his sexuality? “No, I don’t feel protective about that. I just feel that it’s not relevant to what I’m presenting in terms of my art form. Anything else, any other talk, chatter, rumours, discussion, diverts from the discussion of the art form, and that’s always been my primary focus.”
He's a fucking coward. But I guess I get it, he's not really a big enough star(although even Luke fucking Evans first came out when he was basically unknown). If he's still pulling this shit if he gets a bigger taste of fame then he'll be just pathetic.
Most of his fans are devoted female followers, so I guess he's hesitant.
This is as close as he's gotten to saying he's gay though.

Then why do you fucking care? The out ones aren't hot enough for you or because they're mostly annoying?
Well, if someone was closeted (as we think Richard is), then wouldn't he be protective of his sexuality? That response came right after he talked about the stress of people hiding a part of themselves, and in context, it didn't sound like he was including himself in that statement?
I'd think a high-profile closeted gay actor would, in fact, be protective of their sexuality, and not just their privacy. He clearly made the distinction.
However, to his own discredit, if he were straight, he finally had a platform to put to rest some of the speculation, very delicately, and he didn't. He might be totally oblivious to what a particular Tumblr fandom is doing to his reputation, but I find that doubtful, unless he truly doesn't give a shit. Or maybe he felt he had already revealed enough in interviews over the years that it was unnecessary to make such a specific statement. I guess we'll never know until he's caught kissing a dude.
OP, your link does not allow hotlinking. Is there a different source for your image so that we may see it? TIA.
