He's just so dreamy, its like someone took an account of everything rosecreams likes in a man and then made him to order, yummy!

Too bad he's married with a couple of kids (and that he used to hang out with Jimmy Savile) but still ...swoon!

He's lovely but I don't fancy him.

all well all the more Louis for me! I suppose someone will come along soon to stake a claim on their share, surely I can't be alone?

YABU for describing him as yummy 😷
Sorry OP. I (irrationally) hate the word grin

I do like him though, but he's not my type.

WaitrosePigeon Mon 03-Oct-16 17:51:28

I fancy him too blush

He's not yummy but yes, he's really great. I think he's one that I would be amazed if I found out he wasn't as nice as he appears to be.

What imperial said. Can our public schools churn out more Louises please?

To me he comes across as charming
I fancy him too

I guess he is a certain type a bit diffident and nerdy but smart and lovely. A writer I know once interviewed him for her blog and said he was just as he appears but very difficult to pin down.

I really, really like Jim but can't say I fancy him. He seems like a very genuine person

I think he's incredibly sexy (is that the right word?) and I would in a heartbeat. He's not conventionally handsome, but I think it's his intelligence and his ability to empathise with some truly awful people. What cemented it for me was when he was being questioned by drunk neo-Nazis in a Southern hick town as to whether he was Jewish or not. He continually refused to answer, saying "race isn't important to me." and I assumed it was because he was Jewish and felt uncomfortable. Later found out he isn't, which just made him better in my eyes. He could've very easily ended that discussion by saying he wasn't, but he didn't want to give the impression that being Jewish was somehow bad.

I don't really mind about the Savile thing. I do genuinely think Louis was hoodwinked by him a bit but he did keep the friendship going to try and uncover more about him. I'm glad Louis was able to find some comfort in the fact that for the 2 years he filmed Savile, there was no reported abuse, so it could well be that he saved a few people from the horror of him.

He's mine angry

I've heard that too from someone who interviewed him. Said he was lovely and genuine and just as he appears but you get the feeling he's good at masking certain things. I don't think that's a bad thing, most documentary makers are like that so that they can remain objective. I have noticed that since he's had kids he's become a bit more open about how he feels about things, which I like.

He comes across as a thoroughly decent chap.

rosecreams Mon 03-Oct-16 18:02:45

Nakatomi, that is a really great summery of why he is so gifted at what he does, it is so very subtle and humane while still being clever and insightful. His intelligence and empathy are a bit part of his appeal to be sure.

AnyFucker can't we share?

Lewwat Mon 03-Oct-16 18:07:00

I thought I was the only one! grin

Nakatomi Mon 03-Oct-16 18:14:57

Rosecreams I think you're right, I think it's a big part of his appeal. I've watched nearly all of Louis' documentaries and found myself enjoying ones on subjects I never would have otherwise. When I found myself liking Ann Widdecombe I knew he was a good documentarian! grin

shrunkenhead Mon 03-Oct-16 18:18:33

And I thought it was just me!

KanyesVest Mon 03-Oct-16 18:26:29

Louis is lovely. But I'll leave you to fight over him while I sidle up to Jon Ronson.

WTAFF Mon 03-Oct-16 18:32:28

YANBU. I think he is just marvellous.

RaptorInaPorkPieHat Mon 03-Oct-16 18:39:32

I think he's proper gorgeous. Mind you, I obviously have a type because DH is the spitting image of him smug grin

stabbypokey Mon 03-Oct-16 18:43:04

You would all have to climb over me first. He's tall, intelligent, a diffident air and really funny. Louis and Jarvis Cocker would be the only two men I would throw myself at shamelessly.

PatMullins Mon 03-Oct-16 18:47:30

stabby you have a type, then? grin

LolaStarr Mon 03-Oct-16 18:49:27

YANBU, he's lovely!
