Simon Pegg on the Virtues of Being a Nerd
“It just means that you’re into your stuff. It means that you’re proud of what you love and you’re happy to know a lot about it… It’s just about being enthusiastic and out about it.”
This is why I love this man. I don’t care that he’s not “Hollywood good-looking” - to me he’s attractive because I admire him so freaking much.
I admire his talent (both acting and writing) and the fact that he knows what he loves and doesn’t downplay it for anyone. His shameless, over-the-top passion makes me proud of my enthusiasm for all the shows, movies, books and actors I adore at such an irrational level - him being one of them.
I know it sounds kind of pathetic, but I feel like only Tumblr users understand this: When people don’t get my extreme love for something, I realize they’re not worth my time. They don’t have to agree with it, but if they can’t accept or tolerate it, then they’re just not my kind of person.
Because I’m into my stuff. I’m proud of what I love and I’m happy to know a lot about it.
