I'm in love love love with this ridiculous man
  1. A social activist!!! Created Brightwire!!
    The NGO has since been closed but it's goal was to connect film audiences with social awareness films and the organizations that would help engage volunteers to further the films' causes
  2. That one time he was Prince Charming and Meryl Streep was Cinderella
    Giphy
    Brought her shoe to her so she could accept her award on both feet 😍
  3. His friendship with Taron Egerton
    Giphy
    Jfc Colin
  4. Does solid work that often discusses topics underrepresented in the cinema
    Giphy
    Like a speech impediment in The Kings Speech! Depression in A Single Man! Homophobia in quite a few pieces (can you tell I'm avoiding spoilers?)
  5. That ponytail
    Local
  6. Mr. Darcy
    Giphy
    I mean come on.
  7. Very humble about his Darcy fame but not ungrateful. Often stating that it's a "very good curse to have."
    Giphy
    That top hat 🎩🎩🎩
  8. Also says the best way to deal with all of that is humor—thus, Bridget Jones
    Giphy
    He said he agreed to the sequels because of how much he loved to reunite with the cast and crew, but refused to sign on until he approved of the scripts. Good man 👍🏻
  9. All of Kingsman in general really
    Giphy
    Let's enjoy congress together Colin.
  10. Often states that for a while he was just very happy to be employed
    Giphy
    Thus films like Hope Springs exist.
  11. But is very happy he won an Oscar...so he can now have the freedom to do whatever he wants...
    Giphy
    In other words, he's glad he won the Oscar because it relieved him of any pressure to do high quality work. Lovely.
  12. He's proven he's pretty much game for anything
    Local
    Is "no" even in his vocabulary? Decidedly not.
  13. Works on films of every budget range and genre (which is important because, you know, spread the wealth)
    Giphy
    Actors that only work on a big budget are only helping the monopoly that big companies have on the industry. Tiny shoots like A Single Man, big budgets like Valmont, indies like Arthur Newman, mysteries like Where the Truth Lies, etc. etc. are all super important!!
  14. Mamma Mia
    Giphy
    There's too many reasons to love Colin to list them all. Honestly this should have just been a list of this gif
