First of all,
A MILLION THANKS TO JELENA
who translated the interviews !!!!!!! This is absolutely brilliant and I’m so happy that at last all of us can read all those things he said on his work, private life etc. It helps so much to get a more comprehensive and realistic image of him. I love it !!! He’s extremely down to earth, modest, noble, very kind and natural and surprisingly frank in his interviews… such a pleasant, fine and easygoing personality.
Well, this is also a great opportunity to get to know a bit more about Masha and I must confess that though – just like many of you – naturally, as a female fan, I was and still am horribly jealous of her, I’ve come to the conclusion, after reading the interview, that she must be a very nice person. I like the way she expresses herself, sometimes she says things which I find very touching, I like her intelligence and she is definitely not a bitch.
It hurts to say it, but my strong feeling is that she really is the right one for Danya and that he did the right thing by marrying her. He’s so happy, peaceful and in emotional equilibrium with her that it would be foolish, nasty and selfish and just unforgivable to insult or wish her bad. Besides, this would hurt Danya’s feelings very much. As long as she makes our Danya sweetie happy and gives him strength and support, I am happy, too. If you want to stone me to death now… I guess I can hardly blame you (ha ha ha).
(interview “My Wife And I Are One”)
“Masha is my soul mate. And that intimacy is the most important to me.”
Ladies, I honestly love him for saying this about her. Apart from his exceptional, erotic, masculine beauty, he also has a beautiful, rich soul, a warm, tender heart and lots of respect and deep esteem for Masha. Girls, I don’t know, but has any man ever said something like this about you? Has any man ever given you the feeling that he’s sharing his soul with you? Has any man ever shown to you that you’re the most precious gift God made to him? No further comment !!!
“I didn’t find him attractive at the time. Men’s beauty, in general, doesn’t mean much to me. The most important are human qualities, not physical appearance
Basically, she is absolutely right !!! BUT, usually the very first thing a person notices about another person is his / her physical appearance and very often, it’s the decisive point that makes a person fall in love (at first sight) with someone or not. One thing I don’t understand. O.k., she didn’t fall in love with him at first sight and she wasn’t interested in him BUT how is it possible that she didn’t find him attractive?
“she wasn’t very confident toward my bursts of passion.”
I know, I know ‘curiosity killed the cat’ but I would really like to know what these bursts of passion were like…. It’s not surprising she didn’t trust these bursts of passion. I think many women – I’m including myself – would feel flattered on the one hand but on the other hand to be careful and let the guy fight and struggle a bit is probably better. Perhaps she just did not know what to think of him and how to handle everything…
“you can not escape from your destiny”
“Sometimes, words are not necessary. Because, everything’s so obvious.”
She is very accurate and precise in her comments and she’s able to sum up a situation in one sentence. Intelligent girl !!!! I rather like this I must admit. If she was stupid and talking rubbish I would go absolutely nuts !!!
DO: How did Daniil court you?
Maria Leonova: Daniil is very generous. He used to give me presents.
Daniil Strahov: Well, according to my modest finances, at the time.
Maria Leonova: How much it costs - is not the point!
Again, I could not agree more with her. What makes a present precious and unique is the effort, time, thought and sacrifice invested in it by a man which shows his true love and appreciation. I never would have thought, not even in my wildest dreams, that I would be able to say this but this girl has heart, brains and personality. Full stop!
“Paris, or any other place, it makes no difference, as long as we are together. It doesn’t matter what is around you, only matters what’s inside you.”
What a beautiful thing to say…. Yes, I’m sure we all know this feeling… If I had found the love of my life I would even go to the Antarctica with him if he had to go there. Who cares where you are as long as your other half is close by you?....
" Yes I’m jealous, but I’m dealing with it. The most important thing, I think , is to trust a man."
(interview “Poor Nastya’s Leading Star Jumped Out Of Window For Love”)
I did’t feel any need to comment on the following statements of Danya. He speaks for himself !!!!!!! And I adore him for that !!!!!!!
So you are married! That would be great disappointment for your admirers!
“Well, I hope they will forgive me, but that’s how it is. Even so I’m delighted to see all those letters you have brought with you, but I’m afraid there won’t be any serious changes in my personal life in near future. Masha and I are very much in love.”
“Here we are now, five years together. I can only hope that she feels the same about me. In my seldom moments of solitude, I often think how I married once and for all.”
“The truth is I am not very picky about food, I’ll eat with pleasure simple borsch, or piece of grilled meat.”
“I am romantic, you know, ready to make any kind of foolishness for love.”
-Do you have something you would like to wish to our readers on St. Valentine’s eve?
“More love, more intelligence and less fanaticism.”
One last thing: Dear male population of planet earth
!!! Learn from Danya !!!!!!!
