Martin Freeman | Who Do You Think You Are?
Reblogging because of this from a recent interview Martin gave:
His parents divorced when he was 1 and he lived mostly with his father, a naval officer, until his sudden death from a heart attack when Freeman was 10. “At the time, I probably tried to brush my dad’s death under the carpet. I didn’t want people to feel sorry for me. I was small, I was pretty sickly and asthmatic; people already went ‘little Martin’. But when I was 17 or 18, I realized that losing a parent is a big deal. It was devastating in a way that I was unable to acknowledge at the time.” His eyes tear up. “Sometimes I wonder if I heard his voice now, would it be the same as it is my memory?”

Anonymous asked: That "I've got a daughter" bit (and it is always a daughter) is just a liberals' version of "Won't someone think of the children?"
From your pejorative use of “liberal,” I’m going to presume you’re a self-described “conservative.” That puts you on some very shaky ground, considering how many self-proclaimed conservatives use “protecting our children” for any number of draconian, even cruel, pieces of legislation.
You betray a remarkable, and incredible, selfishness in just one sentence. As if to say caring for our children is, in some way, a weakness. As if to say caring for our children is, in some way, wrong. As if it is not every parents’ duty to do just that.
Moreover, you’re willfully misreading what I wrote. I talked of my daughter, yes. And of my colleagues. My friends. My wife. My peers. My fans. I spoke to men and women alike.
Yet another coward who is afraid to sign his name.
All you do is prove me right.
Your words are always so spot on Greg. Thank you for your strength to what you (even if everyone does not always agree) deem as right, fair and kind. You always have my admiration and support. —mimi
Anonymous asked: As a woman who helps run a comic shop, and therefore frequently deals with the "ugly side" of the industry (and the world), I just wanted to say thank you.
You are very, very welcome.
