Ok, we all have a secret list of people who just tickle our fancy and we don't really know why. Some of the people are, let us say, a little embarrassing. They have that je ne sais quoi and they are on our semi-guilty list of secret crushes. Here is mine:
1. Jeff Goldblum.
He had me at Dr. Ian Malcolm. I think I've mentioned him before. But he is totally intense nerd-hot. And I guess i'm a sucker for dark framed (slightly tinted?) glasses. I have no explanation.
2. David Bowie.
We can thank Labyrinth for this. Yeah, the movie where he looks like a tranny. Again, I can't explain. It is what it is. But i will say, David Bowie is hot in his own right. Not just as tranny bowie. I recently put together a 2 disc set of 80's hits and had to include Let's Dance and just like that, the crush was immediately reignited. (also included Under Pressure, for the record. Possibly the best song ever invented.)
3. Jeff Bridges.
I have always had a thing for Jeff. I don't know why. But it is recurring. Every time i see him in something i think, oh yeah, Jeff Bridges. And the weirder thing is, I think i find him more attractive the older he gets. Ehh? Why, Jeff? Why? I think there's something in his voice or something. I don't know. And I like the way his mouth moves. I'm reminded of a part in Pride & Prejudice when Aunt Gardiner remarks how there's something pleasant about the way Mr. Darcy moves his mouth. She knows what i'm talking about. Back me up, Aunt.
Lastly, and i confess this one is really
totally not ok strange:
4. Robin Hood
The Disney fox with a heart of gold. C'MON, you have to admit you had a slight crush on him on back in the day. I would have to say out of all the Disney male leads, human or otherwise, he's the most attractive. I am pretty sure he is where the word "foxy" came from. Foxes are just inherently attractive. (this is sounding weirder & weirder) Add one who walks on 2 feet, has impeccable skill with a bow & arrow, and spends his days (in very wily, sly ways) giving to the poor?? I'm only HUMAN. And yes, that picture of him was cropped. Because as much as we wanted to love her (yes, i am including everyone in this with me now), we kind of hated Maid Marian for being so elegant, pretty, regal and, well, the same species as Robin. Damn her.
Alright, those are 4 of mine. Now let's hear yours. C'mon, don't be shy/ashamed. As I've said before, it's an e-circle of trust here. You're in good company.
