Celebrating Pride & Prejudice Appreciation Day

I read somewhere on the Internet that today is Pride & Prejudice Appreciation Day. (And as you know, it is a universal truth that everything on the Internet is factually accurate.) So, as a huge P&P fan, I decided to have a celebration here on my blog. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm m m m m And now for that age old question ... which actor is your favorite Mr. Darcy?mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I must confess I'm partial to Matthew McFayden. It has something to do with his voice, the misty meadow scene, and the line, "You have bewitched me, body and soul ..." Yum. But Colin Firth is definitely a fan favorite, especially in his wet white shirt.

However, I prefer him as Mark Darcy in Bridget Jones. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The last Pride & Prejudice remake was the Keira Knightley version in 2005. I dare say it's time for a new one, and I flatter myself that the producers will seriously consider my suggestions for casting some of the major roles. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Edward Cullen Robert Pattinson as Mr. Darcy. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Emma Watson as Elizabeth Bennet. Her fine eyes and light, pleasing figure make her a natural for the part. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Andrew Garfield as Mr. Bingley. I liked him so much in The Social Network that I had to have him in my movie. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Alan Rickman as Mr. Bennet. I have been violently in love with his unusually deep voice for many years now. mmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Sienna Miller as Jane Bennet, basically because I couldn't think of any other pretty blonde British actresses (although I'm sure there are plenty). mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmm mm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Have a happy Pride & Prejudice Appreciation Day! ♥ ♥ ♥

NOTE: I am having major problems with Blogger and had to delete the original version of this post. Thank you to everyone who left such wonderful comments and I'm so sorry they were lost. I did read them all before they disappeared.

Oh too!

Michelle said...

Definitely Colin!! Although, Matthew was a bit dreamy. The white wet shirt did it for me though!!

hmmm, perhaps its time to put it in and check it out!


I need to watch those movies! I also heard that Gone With The WInd is the all time favorite movie! I must watch that too!
