Unusual Celebrity Crushes

Post  Decca on Mon Jan 23, 2012 3:51 pm

This doesn't go in the Pretty thread, really, so I thought I'd resurrect one of my favorites!

I just enjoyed Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and then saw this picture. And you know what? Gary Oldman could get it.

See, most times I would totally say that Gary Oldman could get it, but in that picture he looks like Linda Hunt. Does not negate the getting at other times, however.

Topic...I have like a HOST of weird crushes. Frankly if someone is hot/charismatic/talented enough that they're on my TV or movie screen more than once, I've probably said "yeah, I would hit that." Except for Tom Hardy. DO NOT WANT.

Don't ask me to explain, I think it's the coat.

Come to think of it, Tinker, Tailor was full of my crushes-I-can't-explain. Oldman. Cumberbatch. Mark Strong.

Robbie Coltrane has always done it for me, as has Paul Giamatti. I guess I like them round and snarky! I'm also totally on board the Gary Oldman love train.

Seriously.

John Goodman has always been my celeb crush. Unusual in that he's old enough to be my father. And Kevin James -- which might be unusual because he's not considered "conventionally" attractive.

Yes to all of these. I'm not normally attracted to Cumberbatch, but something about the ginger hair and the natty suits made him look fine.

I have a fondness for this guy myself.

I have a crush on Bob Newhart and he's old enough to be my grandfather. I love his deadpan line delivery.

With you on Steve Buscemi. Also Cumberbatch, Strong and I'll add Stephen Graham to the list. I always thought Graham was adorable in Snatch and as Al Capone, he's adorable.

I've always had a bit of a crush on Brian Dennehy, ever since Cocoon. And John Goodman's one for me too. I think I read recently that Roseanne herself admitted she had a crush on him when they worked together, and no wonder.

I find Kevin James attractive too. I hope this doesn't veer too much into political territory, but I also have a crush on Paul Begala. I've seen him on Real Time a few times and not only is he easy on the eyes (well, my eyes anyway), I think he's really smart.

I don't know if this will go over well, but...I kind of like Ricky Gervais. I don't know why, but he is incredibly attractive to me.

Goes over quite well with me. He's totally my type.

Ok, this made me laugh out loud. My mother has exactly that reaction to Hardy. She always says, rather apologetically, that she thinks he's a pretty good actor, but he revolts her so much she can hardly look at him.

As for me, my crush on Damian Lewis has grown to such ridiculous levels that I have no objectivity anymore. His hotness actually distracts me from the actual material he's acting in. I hope this crush modifies to a reasonable level soon, but I fear it won't, especially since I haven't even seen any eps of Homeland yet.

I wouldn't count on it happening after you see Homeland. He has many sex scenes and wears uniforms. It's wonderful.

And, you know, the show and acting is good and stuff.

Oh God, this guy. I first met him at Nick's Comedy Stop when I was 18. We would go every weekend for the Steve Sweeney show to see the scorching hot guy with the long blond hair. One week he was rushing to the stage and knocked my drink all over me. Later came over and said, "Can I replace that drink you're wearing?" Pass. for. life. Plus, we rode the Blue Line home singing "LIIIIIIIIBERACE, HIS ASS WAS A HAT!!" As he predicted. And good goddamn does he ever clean up nice!


ETA: Just realized that the year I became friends with Denis Leary, Lenny Clarke, Bob Marley and Tony V was 1988! I am so old.

Oh, I LOVE Denis Leary. I used to watch that one comedy special he did for HBO over and over again, mainly for that weird sort of skit-performance thing he did with Janeane Garofalo and others where he rants against sex abusing priests. He's ragingly smart and super sexy. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE when he's on The Daily Show. He and Jon Stewart are hilarious and adorable together.

DINAHMOE! This is why we are friends!!!

Funny story about Steve Sweeney. My husband grew up with Steve, and we all come from the same town. When I was getting married, my sisters and cousin took me out to Remington's, a dinner club in Boston, where Sweeney was performing. He chose us to pick on and in the course of the evening, our hometown connection came out. After the show, Sweeney joined us, making small talk. Somehow we told him my husband's name, and he was so excited that he called him from my cell phone and they talked for about 30 minutes. I see him every once in awhile at local fundraisers and he always makes a point to stop by to ask about my husband or to stop and chat if he's with me.

And Tony V's kids play hockey with my nephew.

Tom Collichio, even if a good bit of what he says annoys me. I just find him oddly charismatic.

Mandy Patinkin, despite being crazy.
