Proud to say it now, and always have been… I am a Bean-aholic… a Mr. Bean-aholic. Since I was young, I have always enjoyed watching his videos. I very fondly remember watching them together with my Grandpa (my mom’s father), who could not speak English, and therefore was able to enjoy Mr. Bean with me. With the language barrier we had, this actor was able to bring us closer together.
I find Rowan Atkinson to be a terrific actor, because he is so very good at conveying his thoughts and feelings with merely facial expressions. All of his movies always made me laugh so much as a kid, and still to this day. There is something special about his unwavering ability to unintentionally get himself into horrible situations, and then trying extremely creative yet odd ways to fix it. May not be the brightest bulb as they say, but he is definitely the funniest. Gen and I watched Mr. Bean’s Holiday recently, and it still made me laugh out loud several times. Never too old for his funny faces and gibberish speak. Who else can do so many TV shows and movies barely using any words at all?!
