1 – Striking/Handsome. “Hey has the face of an old-timey criminal.”
2 – Tall. Most actors are such shrimps. Big and tall mmmm.
3 – Smart. Got into Julliard on his first try, with very little acting experience.
4 – Brave. Served in the Marines following 9/11 for two years before being medically discharged for an injury.
5 – Generous. He runs a non-profit organization called Arts in the Armed Forces, that brings theatrical performances to active duty and veteran armed forces members.
Obviously I don’t know this dude IRL or in any other context outside of GIRLS, but from the interviews I’ve read and his demonstrated awesomeness (see above), he seems pretty cool and crush-worthy. Fame came quickly though. Don’t make me regret this post, Driver!
One time I said I didn’t have a ‘type’ when it came to how guys looked. Thinking back on all the dudes I loved before I can safely say that none of them had a defining ‘look’ that grouped them together.
I think that’s changing because lately I’ve become fixated on the following:
(From top incase you didn’t know: James Franco, Warren Beatty and James Dean)
See the pattern? Messy dark hair, a strong stare and a five o’clock shadow = swoon. Am I right? For good measure I want to post a couple more images of James Franco because he’s my latest boy crush and major obsession after reading this article on him in New York Magazine. Amazing profile. You should read it.
I have to wait until December for this? TORTURE.
I can hardly keep my shit together when I look at pictures of Ryan Gosling. I hope it surfaces one day that he is actually super unfriendly and boring and steals his awesome music from another artist just so I can give my heart a break for a minute.
Why can’t this be the way boys dress all the time? Don’t get me wrong – there needs to be some sweatpants and hoodies thrown into the mix too (dies) but suits and ties are so boring.
(Thanks to Lainey for just as intensely loving and posting these pics)
In other (and just as heart exciting) news:
My brilliant, brave and ridiculously hot friend Leigh is cancer- free one year today. Here’s to the first of many cancer-free anniversaries to come. Love you like you love hotdogs xoxoxo
How much do you love Jason Schwartzman? He’s a great actor and such an awesome musician. I think I want to move to LA – maybe after New York, Paris and Ireland. My moving away fantasies are getting out of hand. On a side note, it kind of annoys me that this video for Opening Ceremony’s Spring house line (I’d embed it but WordPress doesn’t let Vimeo embed yet – curses!) features Kristen Dunst too. I guess Zooey Deschanel would have been to0 predictable.
I have loved Ryan Gosling from the get go. OK – not at the beginning of Breaker High but near the end, when he was with Tamira I started in on the crush. It wasn’t until later when he did that movie with my best friend Sandra Bullock that the crush fully developed and then The Notebook…well, I don’t really need to explain anymore do I?
So he’s doing a movie with another one of my girl crushes, Michelle Williams called Blue Valentine. Like my heart hasn’t already been crushed enough in 2010. Will I see it? Obv. Will I try to superimpose my head on Michelle’s in this photo and pretend like it’s mine and Ryan’s little family – NO. I’m not crazy (enough to ever put it up on my blog).
I saw this on Lainey.
Go here to watch the trailer for Blue Valentine. Damn thing won’t embed on my blog.
These will be few and far between, trust.
I’ve always said that John Mayer is the dude you go home with but give a fake number to the next day. He’s hot and kind of dreamy but seems like a holier-than-thou, constantly-judging-you type of guy. Like heaven forbid you ever say anything cliche or glance through a tabloid. Judge Judge Judge.
He’s kind of channeling James Dean in some of these photos and I’m a sucker for a guy in comfy jogging pants. Although, doesn’t he kind of look like a fish on the cover? Still hot.
John Mayer in the new Rolling Stone:
