Announcement From FMRF
In the past couple of days, we have received many Asks regarding the recent exchange between Rupert and our dear friend of the blog @aimeemullinsfanblog on Twitter.
Initially, we were all very concerned about our friend. We know Angela to be a very sweet and dedicated fan of both Rupert and Aimee. We wanted to show our support for her as the lovely human being that she is and recognize her countless hours of dedication to posting Rupert and Aimee content.
Were we disappointed at first by Rupert’s response to Angela’s tweet? Yes, because initially, it felt unnecessarily harsh, especially since Rupert rarely reacts to posts from fans.
But we learned something – Rupert, being a puny human like the rest of us, is going to disappoint us at times. Whether it’s because he doesn’t interact as much with his fandom as we would like, (although he certainly doesn’t owe it to any of us) or because he interacted with a fan in a way we thought was ungracious.
And maybe we’ll disappoint him. Maybe we already have. We should all realize how difficult it must be to live in the public eye. To have your life — the best and worst of it — out there for everyone to see; for everyone to judge.
And here’s something else – a lot of nuance and context can be lost in emojis and tweets. Social media is fraught with miscommunications and incorrect assumptions. We think Angela got it right. She understood and accepted what Rupert was trying to convey to her. And this blog, as her friend, and as his devoted fans, should accept and respect that as well.
So do we still love Rupert and his work? Fuck, yeah, and we won’t exacerbate things by posting and answering any Asks regarding this situation. This post serves as our response to this entire Twitter debacle that spiraled completely out of control and got unnecessarily nasty.
Thank you for following the blog, and thank you for understanding.
FYI Sara the beard you claim he has the inability to grow is called a VAN DYKE it's meant to look that way. Enough with the Q/R hate. It's getting boring now and frankly you're embarrassing yourself.
Those two fingers look extra long. And ribbed, for yours (or somebody else’s) pleasure. 🤨
See what I’m saying?
So what’s the deal here? Did they give Quinn ET fingers with extra phalanges to attract the ladies? Well, that wasn’t necessary — he had us at “Peter Quinn”.

6. The ‘Homeland’ angle
As fans of the Showtime spy drama know, Rupert Friend’s Peter Quinn endured enough pain and suffering on the pay-cable series for at least 10 characters.
That’s why it’s such a delight to see the British actor portray a hilariously arrogant fashion designer named Dennis Nylon.
“Never wear a vintage Hermes scarf with a Gap T-shirt,” Nylon chides Stephanie at one point. “If you were truly Emily’s friend, you’d know that.”
The assignment must have been therapeutic for Friend after all those seasons of pay-cable agony.
Says Feig: “The funny thing is we sent the script to him just to see if he wanted to do anything in it and he comes back and he wants to do Dennis Nylon. I was like, ‘What?’ I never would have predicted that, because I know him from ‘Homeland,’ too and was like, ‘You’re super serious. How can you play this role?’ And it turns out he’s really funny.”
My favorite review so far! Reviewer Julie Hinds knows what she’s talking about!
