My cute little sisters are such tag originators. They always come up with tags, and as you know, I love my tags... Nat started this one today - you're supposed to name the celeb, in your opinion, who is the handsomest/sexiest/prettiest per each of the following categories, plus one runner-up: TV Actor, Movie Actor, Classic Actor, Musical Artist, and Actress.
TV Actor - Jeff Goldblum:
A lot of people think this is weird, because he's, like, maybe in his mid- to late forties by now, but I think he just keeps getting better-looking with age. I put him as a TV actor, because I haven't seen him in any movies lately, and he was on a short-lived TV show either last year or the year before where he's a detective whose imagination conjures up the people who have been murdered, and he walks around, talking with them and trying to figure out who killed them. I was really sad when the show ended, though now I can't remember the name of it. Hmmm. Anyways, I just love the way he carries himself and the way he talks. I think that he would be a really charming guy to know. My sister, Beads, says he looks "greasy," but whatever. I was always attracted to tannish, dark-haired guys. (And I married a white-skinned blonde! Who knew?)
Runner-Up: Milo Ventimiglia, who now plays Peter on Heroes. But I fell in love with him when he played Jesse on Gilmore Girls. I was really, really hoping Rory would end up with him, but alas, she didn't. Even though he seems really short, I just think he's super-duper cute.
Movie Actor - Shia LaBoeuf:
You shouldn't be surprised by this. Like I said before, he's really goofy, and for some reason, that's appealing to me. I like the way he talks, too. He's just a cutie. I have a total crush on him.
Runner Up: Viggo Mortensen. I think he is sooooooo handsome in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He is the only guy I've ever seen with a full beard and greasy, shaggy hair who looks good. I hated seeing him without said beard and hair for awhile, but now I'm attracted to his voice and his gentle manner.
Classic Actor - Steve McQueen:
Sorry about the ciggy. But remember, this was in the sixties. Everyone smoked. And it was the only picture that showed his craggy face up close. I love his face. It just is wrinkley and craggy and rugged and lived-in. Once, my mom, my sisters, and I took a road trip sans Dad (I think it was tax season), and Mom rented The Great Escape to watch in the car on the way home. We pulled into the driveway with half an hour left in the movie, and we totally sat in the driveway and finished it. Steve is so handsome.
Runner-Up: Paul Newman. He was so adorable in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. So fun and goofy and playful. I thought the girl in that should have been in love with him, instead of with the Robert Redford character. And in real life, he was such a generous man. Think of the millions his salad dressings made, and he gave every bit of it to charity.
Musical Artist - I'm with Nat on this one - Justin Timberlake:
He's a fantastic dancer, which is always a big draw for me, and he is also a total ham. He is always doing crazy, funny stuff. He doesn't take himself too seriously.
Runner Up: Scott Weiland. I know he is so messed up and a total druggie, but when he sings, he looks so dang good. In all of his emaciated, drugged-up glory.
Prettiest Actress - Anna Friel:
She's on Pushing Daisies. Which I just found out has been canceled. What is it about every show I love being canceled??? Sigh. I think she has a fantastic smile and mouth shape, and great cheekbones. Her hair is retarded in the show, but that's okay, because she's always smiling. That reminds me. I really need to whiten my teeth tonight...
Runner Up - Sandra Bullock. I've always thought she is really, really pretty. I thought she was so gorgeous in Practical Magic. And she seems nice. Ben says that she always just acts like her own personality in all of the movies she is in, and there may be a measure of truth to that, but if that's true, then I think she and I would be good friends. You know; if we knew each other.
Alright, you know the drill. If you wanna do it, do it. :)
