The Beauty of Darcy

Pride and prejudice

Now we all know that is the wrong answer, but at the same time, it’ the truth.

MeanGirls I know right!

Wait, let me explain for those of you who might be confused. Now I don’t know how many of you have seen the Pride and Prejudice (2005) BBC Version¬†but it has a very memorable scene where Colin Firth, who plays Mr. Darcy, jumps into a pond to cool off and looks great doing it!

While this scene isn’t in the book, I’m not one for complaining about it being in the miniseries ūüôā I love how the two are so embarrassed to see each other; not only is it funny but realistic. Plus Colin Firth looks so good!

Anyways this scene was recreated in the TV series Lost in Austen (2008) [This sucked so don’t watch it] as the heroine asked Mr. Darcy to humor her and dunk himself in his pond. Have to say I loved this scene too as I probably would have asked the same thing.

Is that agreeable? Oh YES!

If only Laurence Olivier had done a wet shirt scene!

Such a good-looking man!

Such a good-looking man!

Even in Bridget Jones’ Diary¬†(a very, very, bad modern-day telling) there is a scene that nods to the ’95 P&P with Hugh Grant falling in the lake and getting very wet.

In the sequel, Bridget Jones’ Diary 2: The Edge of Reason (also very bad) we get two scenes that refer to this. One is when Bridget Jones daydreams she sees Mark Darcy (played by Colin Firth) coming out of the water just like Darcy did in the ’95 version (couldn’t find a video); along with seeing a wet Hugh Grant and Colin Firth fight in a fountain ¬†(Watch from 3:37).

As you are probably wondering if there is a point to this post besides discussing the beauty of these men in wet clothes, there is. Recently I stumbled upon this and thought I would post it for anyone interested.

UPDATE:

Sooo this really happened!

Mr.Darcy

 Why does this only happen in cyberspace and not in the physical world?
