M + Viggo

Maggie gushes:
Not that the Ms really needed more reasons to crush on Viggo Mortensen, but the Times just gave us some.

Viggo's portrayal of Lord of the Rings protagonist Aragorn is what makes most girls love him. But he's this nerdy girl's hearthrob for the rest of his resumé:
  • Director of the Center for Multireligious Studies at Aarhus University in Denmark
  • Editor of an anthology called “Theology and the Religions: A Dialogue”
  • Author of art books
  • Interests include antiwar politics and music
  • Founded and runs (with family members) Perceval Press, a publishing house
  • Poet
  • Perfectionist editor
  • Totally rocks the nerdy thrift store striped t-shirt

Another reason to love him: Earlier in his film career he made a point of PERSONALLY answering each fan letter. Once that became impossible after the release of the first LOTR movie, he asked fans via his website NOT to write, as he did not believe in having some secretary send out form letters, auto-signed photos, etc. Now that is a CLASS act.

Actually the professor at Aarhus university that happens to have the same name as Viggo Mortensen. Isn't the same person AS Viggo Mortensen. Just to let you know!

You have your Viggo Mortensen's messed up - you are giving details of two different ones! Never assume anything.
