Looking through my high school collection of magazines from the 1990s, and I spotted a familiar face in the October 1998 issue of Sugar magazine! This is an article about nail polish…featuring Tom Hardy!!! This must have been from his early modelling days! I love it! What a find, haha!
Happy birthday Yuuya!
-you only live twice-
The real Richard Ayoade is something of a surprise. Prettier, younger and slimmer than he looks on TV, the initial impression is more hipster than geek. He’s also quite possibly the best-dressed person I’ve ever been in the same room as; a peeping sliver of lemon sock perfectly matches the colour of a butterfly’s wings in the pattern on his shirt.
His answers to questions are similarly considered. Polite, softly-spoken and humble, the word that probably best describes Richard Ayoade is “careful”. Not the bad sort of careful that implies control freakery, but the decent sort that means “full of care”. The sort of careful that matches socks to butterfly wings.
