Love him looking so happy. Love his laugh, I've never seen him laugh and smile so much.
Below are two of my favorite interviews so far, and both interviewers ask him the "sex symbol" question in different ways. In the video I just love the feedback from Martin Freedman and Andy Serkis about Richard's answer!
As a shy person myself, I understand why this question makes him uncomfortable (though in my case, I'm in no danger of being called "hot"). Beautiful that in both of these interviews his answers, and the reaction of those around him, also give us a glimpse of his sense of humor.
