I don’t actually like most celebrities. I am not really turned-on by the celebrities themselves. I think they are over paid for what they do, to be quiet honest. I mean, actors lie for a living. It is idiotic to put these people on some pedestal. I definitely don’t want to hear what they “think” about things. I just don’t want to hear what celebrities think. They aren’t paid to think, they are paid to act and “entertain” the masses. I have lost interest in so many actors because of interviews. I can be turned off instantly by one political comment. Like when Matt Damon said that all guns should be taken away from American citizens in “one fail swoop”. Goodbye crush on Matt Damon, you fucking sellout using your celebrity status to push your own agenda….oops, sorry for following a rabbit trail.

What I mean to say is that, I could never see myself with a celebrity. I like the roles they play and like to imagine myself in that life with them. I didn’t even realize I had an actual celebrity crush. If you asked me, I would have said no, I don’t favor this actor above all others. I was in a bit of denial I guess. It wasn’t until My Miguel pointed out how many movies I have with one particular actor, and how much I like to re-watch them, that I realized I might have a celebrity crush. Also, I have never heard anything controversial about him, except maybe that affair(?) with Meg Ryan.

That’s right, my Celebrity Crush is Russel Crowe.

 

Russel Crowe

Some of my favorite movies with Russel Crowe include:

    Oh celebrities… I definitely wouldn’t want to actually be in a relationship with one, that’s for sure! Can you imagine having paparazzi following your every move? Even when you just leave for a quick morning walk with the dog? uh oh…
    I do have a celebrity crush, though… Lenny Kravitz *sighs* I’m in a sort of trance when I go to one of his concerts 😀 And he has that sexy rocker swagger 😉

      No I cannot imagine cameras everywhere I go. I would totally turn into Kim Kardashian and use it to my advantage. Except I would never hook up with a guy like Kanye.

    I generally don’t get celebrity crushes either, I feel like most of them aren’t super genuine. There’s a small handful of celebrity crushes I have had EVER, I can definitely count them on one hand (maybe 2 if you count the teen years haha) but none even come close to Josh Hutcherson. Swoon. All the swooning. 😍😍 And like, technically he isn’t even a full decade younger than me so it’s FINE 😂

    This is such a fun topic, I can’t wait to see everyone else’s answers!

      Yea Josh is swoon worthy! I have never been one for celebrity crushes, I really love the way Leo DiCaprio looks, but I would hate to have to compete with the masses that adore him. It has been kinda cool to watch him grow up. Also, Drew Barrymore! She seems like she’d be cool in real life. Too bad she is married.

    I’m not sure I actually have a celebrity crush. If I get a crush it tends to be more the role than the actor playing the role. And it drives me CRAZY when an actor tries to act like by being in a few movies they’re suddenly experts on politics and economics. I did quit listening to a celebrity memoir because the guy started talking about how people who don’t buy all organic raised on a small farm type ingredients are idiots. This was the paragraph after he talked about his lake house. I decided I was done there!

    This is interesting! I know what you mean about not really liking people as soon as you start hearing them in interviews, etc. It doesn’t tend to happen to me often but I have this thought when famous people judge shows. I actually want to write about this sometime soon. I hate celebrity judges because it starts to ruin how I see the celebrity; I tend to find them annoying or mean and I hate that. haha I need to write about it in more detail soon though; this just reminded me!

    anyway, I suppose you could say that I have some celebrity crushes but more that I think they are attractive/like their movies than actually wanting to be with them. There is really only one person, based on interviews and all that, that I like their personality a lot too and that would be Dan Radcliffe. I just agree with a lot of his beliefs and I like how he views life and that he’s not a big Hollywood person. He’s more down to earth seeming.

      Looking forward to your post on the subject. I agree that Dan Radcliffe is good in interviews. Nice choice!

    You and I are similar – when celebrities get political and we aren’t on the same page then it completely turns me off ever wanting to watch their stuff again. Lately I’ve been having the same issue with authors. I now have a list of authors that I’m not a fan of politically, ack. Ohhhh I like your choice! I have no celebrity crushes at the moment but back in my late teens and early 20s I use to be obsessed with Josh Duhamel. He got his start on All My Children, which I use to watch, and from there I tried to watch everything he was in. Totally obsessed back then lol. Thanks for the reminder ha!

    Mmmm see I used to think Tom Hiddleston was handsome then he dicked about with Taylor Swift and became totally p***y whipped and I thought what a tit. I usually have a thing for dark haired dudes with a bit of facial hair, but the one prob is I keep crushing on guys like five/six years younger and it makes me feel bad!

    However my current crush list is…..Adam Driver / The men from Supernatural / Frank Iero / The dude from Magic Mike who married her from Modern Family – Joe Something Italian sounding / Cillian Murphy and I’ll stop there!!

      Oh I definitely have a thing for a lot of actors, but not really crushes like I wanna watch all their movies. Leonardo DiCapro, Channing Tatum, and The Rock just to name a few.
