11 May - For me, Joseph Fiennes has been critically underestimated
and overshadowed by the leading ladies of his latest films "Elizabeth"
and "Shakespeare in Love". Without his powerful performances in both, the
romantic allure would have been lost. His stare pins his partner and the
audience at the same time. Leaving the theater, I had to ask myself, what
was it about each of these films that had me so entranced? Joseph Fiennes.
His humanity shines through with his regret at having betrayed his Elizabeth,
and his portrayal of Shakespeare is so convincing and multifaceted that
we all feel we know the bard when he's lost his love.
9 May - i love, love love, his eyes. he is now to me the most
beautiful man on the planet! he has replaced antonio in my dreams!
oh to be swept away by joseph would be heaven!!! thanx for listening
! peace&love=happiness, my rule of life. ttfn... SMILE!!!!!!
8 May - you captivate me with your eyes. your voice is silky
against my skin. you dear, to me are god. I am forever captivated by you.
I for ever will be captivated by you. peace&love always!!!
21 Apr - No hablo Ingles, pero quisiera comentar sobre el Actor
Joseph Fiennes, Admiro mucho el trabajo que hasta hoy he visto de este
actor, tiene la cualidad de hacer que sientas lo que se esta expresando
de una manera extraodinaria. Sus papeles romanticos son muy cautivadores
lo que hace que te enamores de las peliculas y admires a las personas que
representan estos sueños tan increibles que hoy en dia podemos disfrutar
acudiendo al cine. Mis mas sinceras felicitaciones por realizar de una
manera tan real su trabajo, espero que su carrera cresca dia con dia y
nos de mas de lo que ya hemos visto. Como ultimo comentario me gustan mucho
sus pecas en la espalda. Mariana, México D.F.
15 Apr - Joseph, you sound ( from the interviews ) like the nicest
person I've ever come across, and you're the sexiest guy I've ever seen
(That I've seen for myself ). My heart thumps when I watch you. Your voice
even makes me warm. Why could I not have been born in the UK as your next
door neighbor and friend? I hope one day I can get the opportunity and
blessing to meet you. Come for a holiday here and take me away with you.
I would love to spend the rest of my life in Ireland or anywhere you choose.
I'll watch your sublime acting talent day in and day out. You are the best
actor this planet has ever raised. Thank you for uplifting the standards
of acting forever. You're BRILLIANT!!! -- Alister, South Africa
10 Apr - This is the stupidest thing I have ever done....
I have read all the fan-mail, debating Joseph Fiennes, and I at one point
imagined how Mr. Fiennes probably would feel, did he read most of the letters.
-Now, I'm not saying that it's a bad thing, this fan-mail, and all, but
I just think that we who are his fan, I myself a major one, should give
him the respect he deserves. Okay, so he's got a cute face, a handsome
body, and most of all he's a great, GREAT actor, but to sit by ones computer,
commenting on how amazingly sexy, gorgeous and hunky he is, for me seems
kind of horney and dirty. -If one really believes that one would love to
sleep with him, shouldn't one have the good-will as to leave such utterings
in ones journals? Because, come on, I know Joe's gorgeous, and I'm as impressed
by him as the next lass, but can't we try to dedicate these fan letters
to great acting talent, and not the fact that he may have the cutest butt
around? Dedicated fan, Iceland
4 Apr - I think Joesph is the sexyest man alive in this world.
For real I'm not the type of person that fell for those other actors like
Leo or brad pitt. But he is so good looking and his back ahhhhh his back.
I want to start a fan club he is so good looking and yet he seems like
such a sweet nice person. I'll def. with out a doubt see his next movie
no questions asked. -- fan from Japan
1 Apr - hello, I had just read your home page, and I read with
surprise that many of your fans don't know how to write in English, but
one thing it's sure, they admire your so much, and so am I. I haven't
seen your last film " Shakespeare in love" but I had hear many good comments
about it. Then, I saw you on T.V. when you had received your prize,
¡¡¡ Congratulations !!!! I hope that your carreer continued
in advance and in a short time, you can achieve your most highest ideals.
My nephew, who had written to your last time, March 27 th, admire to you
so much, and had hung your posters in her room, she had seen your last
film almost five times, and each time she falls in love for you.
Ok, good luck, and I hope you can answer this little note. -- Ana, from
1 Apr - Few things about him: I think I can resist everything
except his eyes--> they're kinda magnetic. He's not the simply handsome
actor just like Di Caprio or Brad Pitt; he's very passionate and shy and
his smiles takes your breath away. -- Chiara, Fracassi, Italy
30 Mar - I'm an italian actress,and I've always been in love
with Shakespeare. Now, I'm " in love" with Joseph Fiennes too. He's a great
actor and an amazing man. -- Georgia, from Italy
27 Mar - Well, I don´t speak english very good, but a I
think that Joseph is the most actor in this year, ´cause he has talent
and figure, Joseph´s eyes are beautiful, when you view the movies,
seems that he fly, he dream, and he doesn´t need to talk...he a wind,
he is as dream or poem...
I´m colombian, I´m advertiser and poetry and a I like the
art, a have 26 years old ... I want to take a picture, poster to him and
to talk him that I am THE MOST FAN and I love his eyes, because are as
the fantasy... Thank for all -- Marcela, from Colombia
27 Mar - hello joseph i'm sara from san marino. i do you do?
i'm fne. you're the best actor in the world. BYE SARA, from San Marino
27 Mar - Joseph, I live at a country of which, certainly, you
don't know, in the periphery of the world, a called country Brazil. A poor
and socially unequal country. A country that has a party of the happiness,
the Carnival, but a sad people. I was sad in the day in that I saw you
for the first time. I attended the film " Shakespeare In Love " and I was
absolutely fascinated with your glance, with your eyes that are two peaceful
oceans, full of tenderness, full of beauty, replete of soul. Your work
is very beautiful, you have peacefulness and truth. The soul overflows
in each sequence of the film. Excuse, but I was impassioned by you. From
here, from so far away, I send positive thoughts and the desire of a lot
of success in your career. A fraternal hug. -- Ricardo, from Brazil
