No French accent is safe around me. Even if they're old enough to be my grandad.

I thought he was quite dashing in Dunkirk and no French accent needed.

Very dashing as Poirot.

Just realised I've got to that stage in life where I fancy the old dad's in films, instead of the young men closer to my age.

I've loved Kenneth since I was about 16 and saw him in this TV play called "The Billy trilogies". ( I think)
He's just lovely.

I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for him. He was so very good in Much Ado and Peter’s Friends all those years ago.

I've fancied him for decades. I was saying on another thread that I can't explain what it is about him that I find so attractive, but I do. Don't tell anyone.

No, just NO

He's mine. grin

He was mine, literally, many years ago and he was lovely and probably still is. I am glad that he has done so well in his career.

Bluntness100 Thu 09-Nov-17 15:20:01

wow. Gotta say I’m surprised anyone fancies him, never mind many confused

CoolCarrie Thu 09-Nov-17 15:21:32

Well, we all have different types don't we Bluntness?

Poirot is Belgian not French

traceyturnblatt Thu 09-Nov-17 15:32:21

@Wilma55 just like Poirot would say!grin

Jackiebrambles Thu 09-Nov-17 15:32:44

Poirot is Belgian not French

Yes he'd be turning in his grave! grin

I think Kenneth is quite tasty too. He's got a nice way about him.

CoolCarrie shock Any more details??

I don't exactly fancy him, though I did quite a bit in Henry V, though the haircut was somewhat brutal. I have friends who melt into a puddle for him though.

I remember in Smash Hits years ago they showed a penpal advert that he'd written in his local paper or something aged about 12. Very sweet.

annandale, he had lovely , thick , normal hair when I knew him I am glad to say!
I worked at RSA many years ago when he was playing Henry V and he didn't do the pudding bowl cut in the production, only in the film. We were both young and daft, although he was always very serious about work. We had a lovely time and I really am very glad for him that he has had great success and a happy marriage.

CoolCarrie Mon 13-Nov-17 19:13:57

He is the closest I'll ever get to Tom Hiddleston and. Keanu Reeves as he has worked with both of them over the years.

Why is that Battle?

BattleCunt Wed 27-Dec-17 04:51:54

@CoolCarrie it's just the way I heard the title spoken in my head. Sort of like this:

A heavy sigh with an elongated eyeroll, followed by a facepalm with the actual admission of fancying KB, after which the OP buries their face completely behind both hands and perhaps goes arrggh in frustration.

I have a very vivid imagination. grin

No French accent is safe around me
Even Kevin Kline in French Kiss?! fwink sacré bleu!

JoyceDivision Wed 27-Dec-17 05:34:23

But didn't he cheat on Emma T?

BattleCunt Wed 27-Dec-17 07:40:34

BattleCunt Wed 27-Dec-17 07:41:11

@JoyceDivision yep - with Helena Bonham Carter when they were filming Frankenstein.

JoyceDivision Wed 27-Dec-17 07:50:47

Hmm, don't like HBC, I get the impression she loves herself a lot more than anyone else can haha, and is one of those painfully try hard quirky people.

And for shagging about, I don't like KB either!
