Not too long ago, as a tribute to my sweet bloggy friend Shannan, I presented you with my own list of Celebrity Crushes.
It was inspired by Shannan's list and it got us all talking over here in Walsh World.
As I hunted for people to put on my list (I didn't hunt too hard, most of them are givens. Let's just gaze upon the witty beauty that is RDJ:
When he showed up on the Oscars last night (a bright spot in the otherwise poor excuse for witty repartee) Adam ordered me to stand down. I blew him off with my claim that "He doesn't even look that good" but then they moved in for a close-up and I had to recant.
Anyway, somewhere along the way, Adam started asking aloud "Do I get a list?"
"Sure, honey," I said. "I'll make one for you."
"So I only get a 'Courtney-approved list'?"
Ok, not really. Truth be told, if I were picking Adam's list there would be lots of mom jeans wearing actresses who leave much to the imagination. But alas, I married a man with his own mind.
So, in an effort to keep things fair, here is THE LIST. The one Adam actually had me write down for him as he dictated to me.
I think I get bonus points for that.
In no particular order:
1. Kate Winslet. (I think she's on my list too.) He claims she's on there because of Titanic (yeah, he saw this mushy tear-jerker with me in college, but unlike me, he's watched it again. I can't. I hate crying.) but I think maybe he's not being honest with himself. Methinks his crush is really on another one of her characters:
Speaking of which...
I chose a very G-rated photo of her because I still have final veto power.
She was Adam's pick on American Idol from day one. She really was just sort of better than everyone else. Though, clearly Chris Daughtry had some serious chops too.
4. Sandra Bullock. It took me a few scroll-downs to find a picture of her with even the hint of a smile on her face, which is interesting to me because she's so darn funny. I do realize her life this past year hasn't warranted giggles and joy, but darn, she's just so awesome no matter what she does. Adam added her to his list during the Oscars last night. She was a good add-on.
5. Famke Janssen. I was surprised by this one. I think it's the superhero tie-in. He's a big X-Men fan. I guess he likes characters that end up becoming Birds of Prey and killing everyone.
(Isn't that what happened? I fell asleep.)
You know. The mom from Good Luck Charlie. Have you watched this show with your kids (or, say, alone, when they're at school?) She's hysterical. She's my favorite thing about the show. I kind of love that Adam put her on his list. What can I say? He loves a funny girl.
Which stands to reason why...
It's hard to choose only 6 or 7, so he added a few Honorable Mentions.
1. The Childlike Crush.
There's a boy at our bus stop named Atrayu, so I'm thinking this movie left an indelible mark on many people in our generation.
2. The Oedipus Complex.
Seriously. Helen Mirren is hot. Did you see her on the Oscars last night?
3. The blond FBI agent.
Adam routinely pauses Criminal Minds to giggle at something Spencer has said or done. Nerdy, brilliant with a serious head of hair, this guy should top everyone's list.
