The Many Faces Of Ralph Fiennes
Ralph Fiennes has many faces, he can work the complete spectrum from a good guy to really evil and every morally ambiguous dude having an affair in between. He has a few faces that he uses on a regular basis – sometimes for good and sometimes for evil, but without context you just cannot tell if he is using that particular face because he is involved in an illicit relationship or if he is about to cut someone.
The mid-distance stare – he might not be looking at you, or talking but there sure is something going on in his head, he with either be a) in love or b) angry. Or a combination of both.
The Duchess – He hates you.
The White Countess – He loves you
The Reader – He is in a moral conundrum
The Constant Gardener – He is sad
Spider – He is weird
Onegin – Thinking about getting another blanket because it is getting a bit cold out here.
The English Patient – look handsome in flashback is all it says.
Clash Of The Titans – doing his best Meatloaf impression.
The Hurt Locker – loves money and guns, which is different to the usual upper-middle class English ladies he usually goes for.
Schindler’s List – being the bad guy opposite Dr Schindler means you have to express evil with every stare.
Voldemort – if it is one thing the magical world is missing it is a good dentist.
Hail Caesar! – not a bad guy as such but that smirk is enough to give you a slap.
In Bruges – you will regret doing that.
Red Dragon – this one parks in car in the evil lot too.
The Avengers – yeah not the Marvel ones.
The Grand Budapest Hotel – this face says ‘Bitch, please’
Quiz Show – yes I’m morally ambiguous, my smile tells you so.
Strange Days – the shirt alone should tell you he is morally ambiguous, the snarl says he might just kill you.
The hey girl – it might be all lovey-dovey or it might be ‘tell anyone and I’ll kill your cat’, it can be hard to tell the difference with Ralph Fiennes.
Sunshine – hands around throat say one thing
Onegin – but hands on face say another.
Strange Days – who knows what’s going on between these two.
Corilanus – or these two. They might be about to bite each other.
The Duchess – he makes Keira feel very uncomfortable.
The English Patient – handsome, suntanned and morally ambiguous.
Maid In Manhattan – he is supposed to be a good guy, but a politician who falls in love with a maid is pretty suspect.
A Bigger Splash – face sniffing could go either way.
Clash Of The Titans – obviously evil because he hasn’t washed his hands.
Oscar and Lucinda – this one is just plain odd – if the Man Who Fell To Earth and the 8th Doctor had a baby this is what he would look like.
