Yay! I made it back this week for another round of Wednesday Ramblings. Once again my partners in crime for this tag team are Bronwyn Green, Kellie St. James, Jess Jarman, Kris Norris, and Jenny Trout.
Topic of the week? Celebrity Crushes.
Not that I’m not a celebrity crusher (wait, that’s a double negative…what did I even say?); far from it. In my heyday, which was of course the fabulous ’80s, I had a list a mile long of celebrity cuties…Mark Hamill, John Cusack, Andrew McCarthy (the list goes on and on).
Now? Well I had to think about it. I have many many characters I would return to again and again, but a celebrity crush was hard to come up with.
In the final analysis, I came up with one.
Aragorn in Lord of the Rings.
Frank Hopkins in Hidalgo.
Tom Stall in A History of Violence.
I even like him as the super-tattooed Nikolai in Eastern Promises with that crazy naked fight scene in the shower room. (Okay, that may have given too much away.)
However, I notice that I’m listing all his characters again. Maybe I’ve grown from celebrity crushes to character crushes.
How about you? To crush or not to crush?
