I want Alan Rickman now.

... and I don't know why.

But there it is.

by Anonymousreply 66June 25, 2008 4:31 AM

Lots of people want Alan Rickman now, later, whenever. The more interesting and apparently unanswerable question is whom does Alan Rickman want? Men, women, both, neither? No one seems to know.

A producer told me Rickman is definitely gay, but he didn't elaborate or explain how he knew for sure.

For what it's worth I was once seated next to Rickman at a restaurant in Los Angeles and IMO he didn't ping overmuch; kind of the opposite, which surprised me. His dining companion was a middle-aged woman. I have no idea who she was.

He's very handesome in both 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Love, Actually.'

Actually, I love him senseless.

OP, rename your right hand Alan Rickman and then go jack off.

Alan Rickman is the luckiest man in show business as well as one of the most talented. He has a face like an old rabbit and sounds like he's talking through a toilet paper roll, but he just happened to snag that role in "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" and as a result got himself typed as a sexy wicked guy, and MAN has he picked up that ball and run with it.

I have a feeling that offstage he's no sexier than any other homely old guy. But give him a character like Snape or Valmont and he's up there strutting like a peacock with the biggest tail you've ever seen.

Again with the vague gay rumors from no real source. So was this a movie producer, a theater producer, or what?

I'm all for the man being gay, but I've never heard of anyone saying [italic]"I've had him,"[/italic] or even [italic]"I know someone who has..." [/italic]

If I had a quarter for every time some gossiping twink told me "Oh So and So is gay- I [italic]know[/italic] it." with out any real information on the person... Puh lease!

We need an anecdote. The only real rumors I've heard about him is, "I saw him going to a theater production- alone" or "with some woman."

Snape was definitely at his sexiest in OOP. I can't help but feel that Rickman was playing up the whole SM undercurrent in that Occlumency scene.

The way he was leaning over Radcliffe and talking about "Exquisite... torture," I wasn't quite sure if he was going to perform "Legilmency" on the boy, or rape him.


by Anonymousreply 13January 2, 2008 12:20 AM

The sequence that introduces Snape in the first film where he stares at Harry across the dining hall and burns him with his x-ray vision is extremely creepy and not in a fun way. If I saw my son's teacher looking at him like that I'd move him to another school.

R7, I never got to see Rickman in Les Liasons, but I've had a thing for him ever since Truly, Madly Deeply, cemented by Dogma. I don't know if I'd say he was dangerous in those roles, but soulfully sexy, most definitely. My Rickman crush has lasted almost 20 years. And I'm a lesbian.

Gee.... rr2/16 was it Kevin Smith perhaps?

by Anonymousreply 18January 2, 2008 3:51 AM

Who was the producer - r2? C'mon! This is an anonymous forum!

Last night, while flipping channels and babysitting my sick dog, I caught the movie "Quigley Down Under" on the HallMark channel.

I couldn't help but notice how hot Alan Rickman was in it. He was rather good in the movie- which was over all just dreck. This man managed to bring out something interesting in a stereotype western villain and made me stay on that channel to watch him.

Anyway, in the final scene - Rickman's character challenge Selleck to a good old fashioned duel. But Rickman did it in a way that was so ... a typical... I don't know.

Then he was wearing wonderfully tight pants, and he did have a rather wide stance, I wonder if Tom Selleck took note of that. I know I did.

by Anonymousreply 19January 2, 2008 4:11 PM

r9, are you aware that Rickman did Les Liaisons on stage, not on film.

Ironically, that was the first time I saw him and I didn't like his performance very much. I agreed with Feingold at the time who wrote in the Voice that he came off as an undergrad impersonation of Sir Ian.

But then came Truly Madly Deeply and a film career that took off and I found myself really drawn to his acting. In Sense and Sensibility I was aware of how appealing he could be. And when I saw him onstage in Private Lives - opposite Lindsay Duncan as he was in Les Liaisons - I understood how truly sexy he was. I was especially surprised at his very nice body - movement and form.

My sister and mother saw him on Broadway in "Liaisons" and both rhapsodized about his performance. And neither is a major cock hound, believe me. I think he's just a sexy guy.

That isn't to say he can't turn it off and on. E.g., he makes Judge Turpin as nasty and repulsive as possible without resorting to moustache twirling. One of the things that impressed me about that production of "Private Lives" he was in was what a sincere, straightforward interpretation of the play it was. Nothing camp about it, he wasn't "doing" Alan Rickman one bit. The moment his character smacked Lindsay Duncan's the whole theater gasped. Okay, we knew then what was really the problem with this couple and it introduced a note of psychological realism you don't usually associate with Coward.

But you know, it's there all the same right in the source material. Noel Coward may have been a great crowd pleaser but he could also write the fuck out of a play.

by Anonymousreply 26January 2, 2008 5:50 PM

I thought he was sexy ever since he stormed into the classroom in Harry Potter's Chamber of Secrets with his jacket flowing behind him. Great entrance. He's a perfect example of an actor who is sexy without being pretty or classically handsome.

by Anonymousreply 30January 2, 2008 10:10 PM

He strikes me as someone who is just quiet and perhaps appears to be brooding, thus the "intimidating" aspect.

I'll bet he cracks if someone jokes around with him thought. I only say this because am the same way. People think I'm intimidating because I'm off in another world with a serious look on my face - my bad.

by Anonymousreply 31January 2, 2008 11:05 PM

I'm not going to identify the producer who told me about Rickman because it would achieve nothing. I will say it wasn't Kevin Smith.

In any event, people who want Rickman to be straight will continue to adhere to this belief no matter what I post on DataLounge and people who want him to be gay will say they knew it all along no matter what I post on DataLounge.

And this business about Rickman being intimidating is a bit silly; he's an actor, not a demigod (fangurlish delusions notwithstanding). I thought he seemed rather low-key and mousey off-camera myself.

by Anonymousreply 32January 3, 2008 5:23 AM

OK fine, r32, no names, but Please Please Please more details.

Does he seem comfortable with himself, or insecure?

Can we say roughly when this was that you worked near/with/ around him? less than 10 years ago? 30 years ago?

Being gay or bi "fits" Rickman better than being exclusively hetero. He's just got that British epicene thing going too strongly to be Mr. Pussy Hound.

Which worked for him rather well in Noel Coward's "Private Lives," I read.

He seems asexual, actually. Any man who has the much access to beautiful people and never acts on it- had to be asexual. I doubt he's had sex in 15 years. He puts it all in his work.

Gossip Bump- what did you witness r43?

by Anonymousreply 44January 4, 2008 9:44 PM

A drunken woman claimed to have spent time with him and his partner Rima (sp?). She said her impression was Rickman was either bisexual or a heterosexual guy with a highly developed and fully foliating feminine side. Rima is the one who wears the pants most of the time. Career wise, Rickman can be aggressive. In his personal life, he can be quite passive and more "womanly" than how he appears in public. With the right people, he is a big ole pussycat who is downright sweet. True to his British form, he is a skilled whiner when it serves him.

by Anonymousreply 45January 5, 2008 2:06 AM

I'm not quite sure what that means. He whines on the job and that is his more [italic]masculine[/italic] side? Or is he a Mommas/Daddy's boy?

In his younger day, I could see him getting upset and throwing some passive aggressive temper tantrum - like the character in Galaxy Quest.

Watching the OOP DVD just now, I can't help but acknowledge that Rickman freezes time when he's on screen. He might be too sexy for the Snape that was in the books, but he all the gravitas that character needed to be taken seriously. Just perfect.

My mother called me today and told me to rent Robin Hood, just to watch Alan Rickman in it. She was still laughing about his part in that movie. Come to think of it, I haven't heard her laugh like that in a very long time.

I don't think I will rent it, but I owe Mr. Rickman a hug for making my Mom smile.

I just found out that Alan Rickman is old friends with Ruby Wax. I wonder if they ever dated?

Apparently, they were "flat mates" in their repertory days and it seems they both felt like outsider at the RSC - so they did comedy skits together. Strange to think of Alan Rickman once touring in a comedy team with her.

I read in an old interview that he held up the filming of Die Hard for a bit when he refused to throw a woman to the ground.

He said it was just violence for the sake of violence and some director's excuse to get the woman's shirt open, It was stereotypical, pointless and demeaning to the woman whose character was supposed to be an executive professional.

They altered the scene.

I like a man who realizes that women are not props to be thrown about the set. There are very few actors out there who would realize such a thing, let alone speak up for it.

When he stripped down to swim naked in "Dark Harbor," his thighs were quite jiggly. He kisses Norman Reedus in that movie, though Reedus is wearing a hood so a lot of the action is obscured.

by Anonymousreply 63March 15, 2008 11:51 PM

It's not too obscured that I recall, r63. Though I heard they edit that scene out when it's played on TV in the States. But Reedus takes the hood down and they turn around towards the camera and there's a good full view for a few long seconds.

I've seen Rickman kiss a lot of women in movies, none with half as much passion as he did that boy in Dark Harbor. Damn. Come to think of it, that's one of the best male on male kisses in movies up to that time ('97-ish I think?)

Alan Rickman just needs to play an out gay character. He pings enough as it is (though straight.)
