Let's get straight to the point because I'm sure you've all been waiting anxiously for me to disclose the celebrities that I think are sizzling HAWT. Well, here's the thing. I must confess that I've always been the one who usually just doesn't get it when other women are drooling over a celebrity.
This dates all the way back to when I was a teenager and all the other girls had major crushes on Simon Le Bon or Jon Bon Jovi. Yep, it was the 80's. Meanwhile, I wasn't remotely interested. I've never really been into 'pretty boys'. I don't want a guy who is prettier than me. Let's face it, that wouldn't be hard. Ahem.
My bewilderment over pretty boys has lived on the present day and I simply DO NOT understand all this fuss over Ryan Gosling. Oh, okay, he is hot. However, that character he played in The Notebook is fictional ladies. It's just plain silly to have crushes on fictional characters, right? Oh wait..
After having a brief crush on Balmain Tigers player Wayne Pearce at around age 12, a few years later at the tender age of 14, the mini series (remember mini series? You're showing your age, if you do) of Anne Of Green Gables aired and I was smitten with Jonathan Crombie, the Canadian actor who played Gilbert Blythe. Of course, I had already been smitten with the character out of the book for years so it wasn't much of a stretch. Yes I know I just mentioned that it's silly to have crushes on fictional characters. It really is. But that didn't stop me.
|Please call me Carrots, Gilbert..erm I mean Jonathan...|
In the series, and the book, he called Anne 'Carrots' because he wanted to meet her so much and Anne cracked her slate over his head. I wouldn't have minded if he'd called me Carrots. I've been called worse things. Such as a 'red headed rat rooter'. Classy.
This wouldn't be the first time I would fall in love with a fictional character. Who could forget Colin Firth as the enigmatic Mr Darcy in Pride & Prejudice? It's not weird to have crushes on fictional characters, right? Nope. No way. Not weird at all.
At least not as weird as my most enduring and intense celebrity crush. A fascination and devotion that borders on the intensely creepy side.
Yes, I've had a massive 'girl crush' on a dead celebrity for 30 or so years. Shut up. I mean it, shut right up. And I'm not the only one. So ner. You know who you are, fellow Karen worshippers.
It seems weird, right? But if you take away the anorexia and the hideous 70's fashions and hair styles wasn't she just as cute as button? No? Hmph. Who asked you anyway? Oh, I did. Right. Well, I stand by my fascination. You can't stop me.
Besides, who could rock double denim like KC?
|Is it wrong to wish you|
could have been that dog?
|Groovy. Far out, even.|
The fact that I would have been a baby then and wouldn't
remember it now is completely irrelevant.
|What a cute couple. I mean hawt...|
And that is quite enough of my creepiness for one day. Or an eternity, really.
*Not really, we all know I'm too much of a Pollyanna. But I just wanted to leave you with that disturbing image. You're welcome.
Linking up with Kirsty from My Home Truths for I Must Confess.
Which celebrities do think are smokin' hawt? Or, you know, you just have a disturbing fascination
with them for no reason? Or is that just me....
