Celebrities I Adore

Emma Rose posted a blog about her 5 favorite female celebrities and then told me that I need to post one about my 5 favorite male celebrities because I don't have a husband so I can still do things like that. It took me over a week to figure out who my favorites are and even now I am not really confident with my list and I couldn't narrow it down to just 5 but, here it is...


I love Michael Buble the very best! If you want to know why then read my blog about him that I posted last month. ;)I really like Joaquin Pheonix. I know that he is getting a bad rap right now because of his bizzar appearance on Letterman but really he is such a good actor. I have never seen him play a part badly and he chooses them so well. He is attractive but not in the normal everyday way. His face is not at all symmetrical and he does this funny thing with his shoulders all the time. He is interesting to look at and read about and a pleasure to watch.Then we have James McAvoy. I think that he has fantastic versatility and no matter what the character calls for he always delivers. He is somewhat new to popularity but he has taken off in a big way. He has a gift for choosing good rolls and he is quite nice to look at.Christian Bale has been my dear friend from the very beginning of my movie watching carrier. From his days of dancing around the streets of New York in Newsies and gallivanting in the woods in Little Woman to his constant forays in Gotham City, Christian Bale has always found his way into my heart. His talent has grown with his age and that is truly impressive. He shows more dedication to the art of acting than most and so I admire him. And we have the same birthday which is always a plus.Paul Bettany had my attention from the first time I saw him act. The first movie I ever saw Paul Bettany in was A Knights Tale. The movie was charming but it was made truly great by the supporting character Geoffrey Chaucer who was played by the virtually unknown Bettany. From then on I started to pay attention to Bettany's carrier and he has yet to let me down. Paul Bettany even got me to like Kirsten Dunst when he played opposite her in Wimbledon. Before that movie I had always found Dunst intolerable but with his help I loved her.Hugh Laurie has been thrust into American cinematic fame because of his starring roll in the show House and while I do love his character in this show my love for Laurie really began many years earlier when I first saw him portraying the ever so lovable Bertie Wooster in P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster. Hugh Laurie is my old man crush. He is an excellent actor and in every interview I have ever seen with him he is charming and witty which I like. He is great.Last but certainly not least is Hume Lake's very own Darin McWatters! His stirring performance as the evil guy in the Ponderosa opener Stand forced me to take notice of Darin and his blossoming carrier. Darin has continued to wow with his portrayal of some other guy in that other opener. Darin is truly one of the great male celebrities of our time.




Ok so Darin isn't really one of my favorite celebrities but I felt that the world needed to see this picture so here it is.

You are a brave little soul. I will pray for you as the rath of Darin is about to befall you. I do admire the picture and the list was excellent, Christian Bale being my favorite of them all;-) What a stud!

Married or not, I could have written this list, although I would have added Viggo Mortensen and deleted Darin McWatters. No offense to Darin - just no comparison to Viggo.
