INTJs are clever, analytical, pragmatic and logical, and are not scared to tell someone (or themselves) when they’re being stupid. They emphasize efficiency, making them simultaneously loners and excellent leaders. Their natural talent for planning and system-building often makes them the perfect villains.
Please tell me you’re asking about his Jack O’Neill days because I saw a recent photo of him and it was more disappointing than Brendan Frasier.
Hello, friend and fellow Stargate fan! Did you know that RDA is 64 years old, and has been basically retired from acting for nine years? That’s nine years during which he focused on building his house; being a single, full-time dad to his daughter, who is now a teenager; and traveled around the world to dozens of fan conventions. Also during that time, he had several surgeries he’d been putting off for years until he had the time off to do them, including multiple painful foot surgeries and surgery to correct a blocked heart valve, in addition to dealing with chronic back pain and knee pain from all the times he injured himself over the years doing stunts and just, you know, living life. A couple of times, he was forced into extended periods of recovery and inactivity, and required medications that caused weight gain. And did I mention that the man is 64 years old?
*sigh* You know what? I’m tired of having this discussion about anyone. Because A PERSON’S VALUE DOES NOT LIE IN THEIR APPEARANCE. Not Richard Dean Anderson’s, not Brendan Frasier’s, not Angelina Jolie’s, not yours, not mine, not anyone’s.
Look. It’s rude to comment on other people’s bodies, whether they’re famous, or your sister, or “they used to be hot!” All human beings age. RDA has just as much worth as a person now, as a fat old guy, as he did as a young fit guy—and he certainly has more wisdom. Please don’t reduce him, or anyone, to a mere body with an attractiveness expiration date by focusing on something as changeable as appearance.
Every time Bethany writes about this, i am overcome with the urge to respond, “AND I’D STILL HIT THAT.” Because I would still hit that.
Every time I write about this, I’m overcome with the urge to add “AND MY FRIEND ANNIKA WOULD STILL HIT THAT” somewhere. (I would too, honestly.)
Well said, Bethany.
