Stars I Like

Post  caltrask55 on Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:36 am

I hope it is ok to start this topic! I was just watching the Macy Parade and saw the performance by Daniel Radcliff. I never had any real opinion of him....seemed like a nice kid I guess. But I was SO impressed watching him perform a song from "How to succeed in business" at the parade. It was SO entertaining! Also....John Larroquette is still a tall sexy beast.

He is a really nice kid! (It's the interview that was linked to on gofugyourself.com)

I freaking love that kid. Truly. It's sick. I'm just so happy he's not a giant asshole. He seems like such a nice, decent, hardworking kid. I love that he worked really hard to try to be a better actor with each Harry Potter movie, and it's obvious that he's worked his ass off to not suck at How to Succeed. I'm so pleased with the way he seems to have turned out, and I want nothing but good things for him.

I don't even really care for the HP films, and yet it makes me really happy that Daniel's apparently a really decent guy. He became hugely famous at such a young age that it wouldn't surprise me if he'd turned into some alcoholic egomaniac or something, like so many child stars. Good on him for staying humble and driven!

I *may* have liked him even more when I read that he spotted Darren Criss at a HP movie premiere and went, "Oh my god, you're Harry Potter!" But I liked DanRad even before then for all the reasons mentioned: he's talented but humble, and not in an annoying, "I'm trying to APPEAR humble" way. From the interviews I've seen/read, he also seems like he has a wickedly wry sense of humor.

He was hilarious even at 12. I still remember that Letterman interview he did for the first movie. "Brick windows," ha! Classic. And so adorbs.

Basically, I love him so, so much and want him to have a long, diverse, and successful career. I think he's going to be fine.

I think this was posted at SF 3.0, but it's too adorable not to share again: Chris Evans is a darling.

I was actually thinking about that Chris Evans story a few days ago! There are basically cartoony hearts floating around my head while rereading that.

I was hoping someone would mention Chris here already so that I wouldn't have to since I've blabbed about him at a few different threads already. Whenever I see pix of him with kids, it melts my cold heart.

Yeah, between that and taking beer pong with Jimmy Fallon (last clip) hilariously over-seriously (and busting out a Boston accent), he has pretty thoroughly charmed me.

Well darn now I have to post this gif of him with a baby, from his GQ cover shoot.

And this one of Chris and Tom Hiddleston with the luckiest little boy in the world on The Avengers set.

That beer pong clip is fantastic. "Come on, Chris!" I love how much he got into the match. "WHAT is happening?!"

Ugh, he was so cute on Fallon, showing off his embarrassing school photos and psyching himself up (and also chastising himself) while playing beer pong!

bloomtoperish, you've killed me dead with that gif. Truly, you have.

Huh. Turns out he went to the same high school as my family friend AND that his younger brother would have been in said friend's graduating class. *scurries off to get dirt*

His brother Scott Evans is a total cutie and was on OLTL in their big really good gay storyline KISH that was then scuttled and he/his co-star in the pairing were fired unceremoniously.

Oh, I'd heard about that OLTL kerfuffle but had no idea it was Chris's bro involved!

I work with chefs every day. Chefs at my company, guest chefs. Sometimes I kind of hate everyone in the profession.

Douglas Keane is the chef at Cyrus in Sonoma County, California, which holds two Michelin stars (three is the max; chefs will brag until the end of time if they've ever worked at a place that held even one, even if they weren't the head chef). He's a regular local guy who does regular local guy stuff, as opposed to some of the big chefs in the Sonoma/Napa area, many of whom are huge douches. OMG so huge.

One of the things he does is volunteer at the local animal shelter. And he bonded with one of the dogs he helped there, and applied to adopt it with the idea of rehabilitating it (after months in a scary shelter, the dog was stressed out) and either rehoming it or keeping it himself. In his spare time (?) he became certified as a dog trainer, so that would help with the process.

Well, the shelter decided that although the dog was never aggressive, it was a possible danger, so they rejected Doug's adoption application and decided to euthanize the dog.

So Doug sued the shelter to stop them, and the shelter has agreed to let Doug rehabilitate the dog, who never did do anything to anyone except lose his family.

So much love.

Awww, indeed!

BTW, my Ellie, the pretty girl currently appearing in the "Pets" thread, was deemed "unadoptable" by the shelter where she was dumped after her people got a divorce. The same Ellie who has logged dozens of appearances as an ambassador dog for our rescue group, and wiggles herself into a circle at the prospect of getting petted by anyone. Her crime? She was "too shy." Fortunately, one of our volunteers works there and saved her for me.

Yay, Ellie!

It's terrifying how easily the label "unadoptable" is slapped on a dog.

Oh, Robert Downey Jr., be more adorable, why don't you:

Just before we started rolling, I also took the time to thank Downey for a kindness he did for my oldest son, Toshi, a few years ago. He didn't realize Toshi was my son, and I wasn't present when it happened, but it was backstage at Comic-Con, where my wife was sitting with Toshi when the "Iron Man 2" panel ended in Hall H. As Downey was coming off the stage, Toshi was sitting in a chair near him and yelled, "Hey, Tony!"

Downey walked over to this random cheeky four-year-old and sat down, introducing himself in character. He talked to Toshi about how it was to operate the armor, work with Captain America, and fight bad guys. For four or five minutes, Downey stayed in character until finally he explained that there was an urgent matter that needed his attention, and he excused himself. To this day, Toshi is absolutely sure that he met Tony Stark, and that he got to discuss being Iron Man with him. I told Downey how much that simple act meant to the imaginary life of this little boy, and I thanked him.
