I have been infatuated by this man for over 10 years. I think he is gorgeous, an incredible actor and simply wonderful to look at. As an Actor myself, there are only a hand full of people I would like to meet but Mr. Purefoy is at the TOP of that list!

anyone else notice how all the other women resemble the love he had that died of cancer...trying to fill in the blanks of his life.

AnyaJul 31, 2009

Oh I think I am in love with you, it is too bad you will never know who I am. The Vanity Fair movie made me sad when you died, Phylantropist is pretty engaging, you are amazing. If you are ever in San Francisco I would love to take you out for coffee. poka
