Re “airport gate” (http://frauvonelmdings.com/2015/07/14/well-it-does-say-moody-actor-on-the-tin/) The girl in question and her autograph hunter significant other got a taste of exactly the kind of man Richard is.
He apologized to the man and asked where he could send a picture and is currently following the girl (I assume apologizing for his “rudeness” via DM). He turned the other cheek and gave them what they ultimately wanted.
Richard is uncompromising in his kindness and we need more people in this world like him. THIS is why I’m an admirer of this man.
EDIT: I really have no opinion on whether he “should have or shouldn’t have” I just think it’s sweet that he did, and that he cares about what fans think of him. I’m much the same way, if people are discontent or angry at me, I address it and see how I can make it better.
