I need a new celebrity crush!

So with all the fire news, I didn't get a chance to mention my recent opportunity to do celebrity interviews on the red carpet for the premiere of Four Brothers last week. It was a pretty fun experience to be on the right side of the velvet ropes and actually get paid to interview one of my favorite movie star hotties - Mark Wahlberg - aka Markey Mark.

That said, I gotta tell you - I was severely disapointed by meeting Mark Wahlberg in real life. From growing up with him - on stage rapping, dropping his drawers in Calvin Klein ads, and acting in classic movies like Boogie Nights - I had long drooled over his perfectly sculptured chest and boyish smile.

But in real life? He's not all that impressive. At least not when I interviewed him. I mean, who knows? Maybe he had a rough night. He spent it in his home town of Boston - so maybe there was a huge rager of a party and he was still recovering. But he didn't look all that good to me. He looked tired. With a bad haircut. And short. And pretty nondescript, to tell you the truth. Just kind of, meh.

So he's off my list. As are a lot of celebrity hotties these days. Like Jude Law. Used to be my number one crush. But after his affair with the nanny? Ugh. He's just slimy and gross. Wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole.

And Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo. When I interviewed him last year during the World Series parade, he was so happy and grateful to be part of the team. I totally fell for his blue eyes and charming personality. This year, now that he's all famous, the married guy was caught in Northeastern dorms hanging out with freshman coeds. Bleh.

Sigh. I need some new celebrities to crush on. Any suggestions?

I have to say as much as I enjoyed Four Brothers (definitely my kinda movie *g*), he looked pretty scrungy in it, too. Maybe it was a carry-over of his role. Made me wanna hand him a razor and go watch The Italian Job =\

Hugs!

Orlando Bloom, Gerard Butler, James Purefoy (Mark Antony in Rome), Josh Lucas. I could go on. Clearly I watch too much television.

Johanna said...

Yeah, Jude Law is off my list, too. Orlando Bloom is good. And what about Johnny Depp?

Jess said...

Mmmmmmmmmm. Matthew McConaughey. Yum!

Josh Lucas...growl - Matthew McConaughey, and Ewan McGregor with his sexy scottishness. Orlando Bloom needs to eat something. Gerard Butler is hot hot hot and that guy that was in that movie with Julia Roberts that played her husband. The one with Jude Law and Natalie Portman. I have a thing for accents be it southern or foreign.

Natalie Damschroder said...

Check out Orlando Bloom in Kingdom of Heaven. He definitely ate the right things for that. :)

Johnny Depp, yes.
Matthew McConaughey, yes.
Josh Lucas, okay.
Ewan Macgregor, definitely yes.

Clive Owen ewwws me out (He's the husband in Closer)

But my newest and the one I'll eagerly encourage everyone to add to their lists is Djimon Hounsou. I had a beefcakep photo of him on my blog recently. He's incredibly talented and very, very hot (see The Island--yummy).

Josh Lucas is cute, as is Matthew Mc. My all-time celebrity crush has to be Ben Browder. *sigh*

Susan Calvin said...

Call me old school, but I'm still hot for Pierce Brosnan. Sigh. :) Whenever I get disappointed in the current crop of hottie wannabes, I just go pop in an old homegrown recording of Remington Steele, and that's my fix for the day.

Ed Helms, as long as you know I saw him first :)

Erin said...

I have to agree with Jana, try Ben Browder :D yu-mmy!

Diana Peterfreund said...

Oh, Ben Browder... This winter, I blogged about how edible he is. Ben Browder, Now On Stargate SG-1.

Erin said...

Clive Owen, Gerard Butler, John Cusack, and Mark Ruffalo (to name just a few lol) all do it for me *s*

~Erin *not the one that already posted here though :)*

Jana J. Hanson said...

If I could remember to watch SG-1, I'd be drooling for Ben Browder.

Every week I do a "But Are They Hot?" item on a hunky celebrity man-- this week it's Dougray Scott and he's definitely very hot!!

Each week it's a new guy ... only for inspirational creative purposes, of course! You should come get inspired!

My favourite guys lately have been Jason Bateman, Patrick Dempsey, Eric Bana and Goran Visnjic.

Anna Lucia said...

Ooooooo! Someone else who likes James Purefoy!!! :-D He's the inspiration for my current hero.

And sometime I'm going to have to find room to model a Hero on Daniel Craig.

You know, that is not true about Bronson. Did you see on that site it basically said they're pulling your leg? That it's a rumor from an unreliable source. I don't see Bronson cheating on his wife...not that openly anyway!

ooh, I agree with Nikki...

Patrick Dempsey! :)

Others: Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas (from Sweet Home Alabama and Stealth, right?), James Denton, Jason Statham, Matthew McConaughey, Eric Bana, Christian Bale
