Alright, so Table 9 Mutant at Cinema Parrot Disco did this list of her top ten movie crushes, and the idea was seconded by Abbi over at Where The Wild Things Are, my arm got twisted,and here is my very own list (nope, no Hemsworth here Cinema!), though in no particular order. Never thought I would see one of these up on my site… my best friend will be so proud! 😛
Harrison Ford as Han Solo in Star Wars
Harrison Ford had a tendency of picking the good ones when he was younger. Han Solo was smooth, a fast-talker and cheeky as hell, and provided plenty of laughs and an attitude that made him truly irresistible.
James McAvoy as Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class (2011)
Now whoever knew Charles Xavier would have been hot in his youth? Just kidding. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the young and idealistic Charles. He was intelligent yet still a little naive, making him optimistic and brimming with energy.
Adam Brody as Dustin Knight in Grind (2003)
He was geeky, he was smart, he was adorable… I know he is not most women’s cup of tea but I am a big fn of nerdy and geeky. It wins each and every times in my books, to be perfectly honest.
Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker in Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Yes, this is my controversial one and everyone can just deal with it. He was in love and prepared to do anything, he was a part of the Jedi, he questioned too much, he was mistrustful and insolent, paranoid and demanding, yet it all came together to bring forth a pretty damn arresting character – and I don’t care what any of you Hayden-Christensen-as-Anakin-Skywalker naysayers have to say on the matter. It just worked.
Norman Reedus as Murphy MacManus in The Boondock Saints (1999)
Oh yeah, carrying on like a hardworking Irishman with a perfectly comfortable life, Murphy was funny. Terribly funny, crude, smoking and drinking and being alive, no matter where he was he loved his life. Silly, sweet and a firm believer in what he stood by, constantly being ragged on by his brother on countless occasions, he totally had me hooked.
Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
Dorky and cute, he was just so sweet. He was sharp as a tack, sarcastic to boot, playful and so awkward. He is so easygoing and geeky, which can work so much in a guy’s favour. Loud, proud and out there is not necessarily the only way!
Matt Damon as Jason Bourne
I cannot explain it, but lost, confused, amnesiac, smart, well-trained and incredibly dangerous just counted in his favour from the get go.
Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones
Indiana Jones was ridiculously smart and cocky, with tons of personality. He was adventurous and endlessly appealing. Not sure if I can get away with having him on my list twice, but honestly he played two different characters who both just happened to work for me.
Ryan Gosling as Driver in Drive (2011)
The Driver was quiet, mysterious and cool, incredibly sweet but oh so dangerous, too. I really liked that! It made him so appealing to watch, and to see how he was when he was just himself vs the person he became when things went a little dodgy… I quite liked that.
Heath Ledger as Patrick Verona in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
This may be a conventional pick, but damn Heath Ledger just totally worked this role. The total outcast, insanely hot smoking (very few things get me as much as a fine specimen smoking… ask my best friend, it never ends), devil-may-care attitude and those dimples. Yep, I, too, have been won over by those dimples…
