Celebrity Crushes: Who's on Your "List"?
Everyone has a list. That pretend, never gonna happen, complete fantasy list filled with celebrities that if given the chance, you'd have sexual intercourse with (That's my attempt at keeping this post as tasteful as possible). There have been several men that have come and gone on my list. For instance, a few years ago, Ben Affleck was a key player on my little love fest list. Now, he's a goner... Traded for Ryan Gossling. (Hello).
I think I even had Matthew Fox on there at one point... during his "Lost" days (If I admit to him being there during "Party of Five," I'm totally dating myself, aren't I?). But as soon as "Jack" and the rest of the castaways left the island and abandoned me and my "don't call me, it's a Wednesday night," I think his spot on the roster was filled with Ryan Reynolds.... who came close to getting the boot for Bradley Cooper when I found out he was fluent in French. (Pouvez-vous dire a chaud?!)
Most of my girlfriends have similar lists. They have their one must have dreamboat and then a few players who get traded in, moved up and down, taken in and out of the game depending on the season. (Hey dudes, you have your fantasy leagues, we have ours).
On the flip side, when it comes to celebrity girl crushes (and let's face it, most women have these too), those never seem to change. For years and years, I have always had "a thing" for Jennifer Lopez. Something about her face, and maybe natural curves appeals to me. In fact, I think she's getting even more stunning as she ages. I literally spend a good portion of "American Idol" now marveling at her face and not the singing. A girlfriend of mine reminded me how incredible her makeup is and how perfectly lit she is--- Is it possible I'm so girly that I just love her makeup (her eyeshadow is always to die) and clothes (fabulous beyond) and that's why I'm staring? Who knows. Because frankly, Kate Winslet looks completely different than Jenny from the Block and I love her too. Boy, as soon as she and Jack set sail on that big ol' ship, I had a crush.
I asked some community members to share with me some of their fave celebrity girl crushes: Reese Witherspoon, Chelsea Handler, and Amy Poehler for some... (Guess girls prefer blondes?) When it comes to celebrity crushes, are we drawn to the women we'll never look like or the women we want to look like? I can't figure it out. All I know is that when it comes to my list LIST, George Clooney will forever be my number one. And I'm pretty sure his makeup and hair has nothing to do with that.
