One more reason why I love David Tennant

DT appreciation week, day 7:
One more reason why I love David Tennant 

I’ve decided not to use the themes of the day, but to write some of my own ramblings. Hope it’s okay and that it can still be used in DT appreciation week :-)

Like most of the people that I socialise with in here, I find David Tennant extremely attractive, handsome and sexy. But lately I’ve been thinking a lot about David’s humbleness about the way he looks, and I feel that there might be more to it. So here are some thoughts:

Yes - David is a humble man when it comes to his own looks. He’s said several times that he doesn’t look at himself as sexy or handsome and this is because of his upbringing. I believe him when he says this.


However, I do think that he’s quite confident and happy about his looks. Just look at the way he dresses - he DOES care about how he looks. I think that it’s the very idea about someone deciding and setting the bar on what beauty is, who’s sexy and handsome - and who’s not - that he finds repulsing.

We also have to remember that David’s also a father and I think that he wants to teach his children to be confident in themselves based on their personalities and not on their looks (although, I can imagine David’s children being gorgeous!)

I’ve also read in an older interview (from 2005, I think), that he doesn’t care about how a woman look like - he gets attracted to talent and personality. On Saturday Night Takeaway last year, this was his comments on a clip with Jennifer Lawrence, who had just been voted “most beautiful woman alive”:

As you can see, David’s all: “Meh, I’d rather want the food that she ate!” Later on the show, David fanboyed over a chubby, though very beautiful singer, Joane Stewart. In my world, he’s sending a very clear message here: It doesn’t matter how you look - if you’re a nice person and does what you love to do, I’d rather hang out with you than this mainstream actress*.

So, my conclusion is that David is a very humble person, but that he also has some rather strong opinions and is critical about the mainstream tendencies of our society. David is a truly good human and he wants all of us to feel good about ourselves, even though we might not live up to society’s views on beauty or sexiness or whatever.

* please note that I have nothing against Jennifer Lawrence - I just use this as an example to prove my point.

Jackson Wang should be every human’s goals and personal aspirations

like what kind of pure soul he has? He’s grown into such a bright, cheerful and lovable man, he has so much respect for everyone yet he is so approachable, he’s so sweet and caring and always makes sure to not leave anybody out, he works so hard to achieve his dreams and encourages everybody around him to do so, he’s always so warm and caring, he has so much love to share, he’s a perfect human being??

can confirm that brady skjei is a perfect human being

aka we were just waiting outside msg after the game and brady, jimmy and lindberg all walk out and they’re all signing and taking pics with everyone and i show brady that i’m wearing his jersey and his eyes just light up and he goes “oh you’re wearing my jersey! i’ll definitely sign that!” and was just so smiley and happy and nice

“Hannah Baker”

When watching 13RW I found myself relating to Hannah quite a lot… from the bullying to the other experiences she had. She wasn’t perfect, she was just human… a normal teenage girl who wanted a normal life…

(I don’t recommend the show if you are currently struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts or have triggers relating to suicide/sexual assault/self harm)
