You think so? I do too!

Sophie took it especially hard when Howl said there wasn’t a point in living if he wasn’t beautiful because he basically implied that she herself had no point in living. I love that, by helping Howl to find his heart, Sophie also strengthens her own in the sense that she gains confidence in her own beauty. It’s telling how Howl compliments her silver hair, since silver hair is generally a mark of old age and wisdom. In a way, both of them have matured since the beginning of the movie, and it’s almost as if he’s complimenting her for this too. What I think is most wonderful about the scene where he calls her hair beautiful is that it’s probably one of the first truly heartfelt compliments he’s given anyone since he lost his heart as a boy. He always had a charm about him, but before meeting Sophie it was pretty obvious that it was superficial given his self-absorbed attitude.
