My favorite actors.
I’ve gone ahead and made it actors, plural, because there’s no way I’m choosing one. And yes, they will all be men.
Shall I answer based on acting skill? Appearance? My new best friend? One man who is all of the above?
I’ll try to answer all four of those.
Hugh Laurie. Maybe because House MD is, possibly, my favorite show of all time. And he has the same birthday as me. [Not the same year! And this really has nothing to do with his acting.] Also, he’s British.
Chris Hemsworth [obviously] No need for further explanation nor clarification. But I’ll add: Australian. Surfer.
Keanu Reeves [showing my age?] I’ve loved him since he was Ted… the first time. Also, Surfer.
Alex O’Loughlin [again, obviously… if you know me] I can’t, in good conscience, leave him out. Plus Australian. Surfer.
Henry Cavill [just…yes] He’s Superman, for fuck’s sake. Also, British.
This list could be so much longer… but you’ll probably make fun of me. Couple more…
Tom Ellis [sigh] The devil himself. He’s a bit irresistible. Also, British. Okay, Welsh. I’m down with that.
Robert Pattinson [who am I to argue with science?] And no, I’ve never seen a Twilight movie. Nor read the books. But he’s hot. It’s scientifically proven. Also, British.
To be honest, my favorite sexy actors change with my moods… or with whatever I’ve been watching lately. But Chris never drops off the top five. Or at least he hasn’t yet. Hear that actors? Show me what you’ve got! Ha. I’m clearly a very shallow, sex-deprived woman. But I showed great restraint in only showing off the abs of one of these guys.
Even Google knows Chris is the best… he is the literal poster boy for handsome.
James Corden. He makes me laugh so hard I cry. More than once, I’ve been cracking the fuck up at, like, 1 am and I’ve woken the kids. Oops. When he laughs, I laugh. He’s infectious. And not in a disease way! And, yes, I count him as an actor… he’s been in some stuff… and on Broadway, too. And hey, British.
Ryan Reynolds. But I’d probably end up falling in love with him even though he’s way too ‘boy-next-door’ cute for me. Although he sure does know how to not shave. Bonus.
All of the above:
Fuck if I know. A while ago, I would have said Johnny Depp. Honestly, he’s the only actor I can think of who would fit here. But I feel wrong saying that now in light of the abuse allegations. It appears that he’s the bad guy. [Sorry, Billie, it’s not you.]
Hmm… not an American among them. [Except Johnny Depp, but I don’t think I’m counting him.] Get me out of this country!
[Ryan Reynolds does have dual citizenship now, but he was born Canadian. Don’t test me… I know my men! And Keanu Reeves is Canadian, born in Beirut, with a Hawaiian name.]
None of these men are clean-shaven either. That’s my thing. Even for my besties.
By the way, these are in no particular order. Well, they are in the order in which I thought of them, but I did not arrange them according to my preference. I don’t think I could. I’m too busy trying to plan a get-together with James and Ryan. I wonder if Alex will be my date? Slurp.
p.s. — And now… my least favorite actors.
Jake Gyllenhaal. He’s hairy and annoying and I don’t like him.
Ryan Gosling. He is wholly unattractive and boring as fuck. Why do women like him?
I’ll stop now even though you and I both know I could go on.
