I read a headline a few weeks ago about a father who was mortified that his teenage daughter had seen that he had a picture of Britney Spears on his cell phone. (Personally, if I was a teenage girl and my father had a picture of Britney Spears on his cell phone, Iâ€™d be more mortified about his taste than anything else. But I digress.)
That headline started me thinking, and made me realize something: I like cute boysâ€¦does that mean Iâ€™m a dirty old lady?
Now, before the internet explodes with the news, let me clarify: I like cute young starsâ€¦not young men on the street. Just as Bruce has his little Selma Hayek/Scarlett Johanssen list, I had my own Hugh Jackman/David Duchovny/George Clooney one.
But lately, I realized my â€œlistâ€ guys are getting too old for me. (hee hee)
While I should, given my age, be drooling over guys like Mel Gibson (been there, done that, he lost me when he went crazy) or Harrison Ford (he was such a jerk to his wife) or good old George (eh, not doing it for me anymore) in truth, I prefer cuties like the two guys who star on the CWâ€™s show SUPERNATURAL,
And especially Jensen Ackles.
(Middle daughter got the season 2 DVD for Christmas and we just finished racing through it. That Dean–what a doll. And what fabulous dialogue!)
Letâ€™s face it, I was a Tiger Beat teen. And once youâ€™ve had Robbie Benson, Leif Garret and Sean Cassidy on your wallsâ€¦well, you never lose your eye for young heartthrobs.
So hereâ€™s a little boy-toy eye candy for us all. Or, at least for those of us who are 1965â€™ers or older. You youngsters can legitimately drool all you want. The rest of us will merely amuse ourselvesâ€¦Feel free to contribute to the list. Who’s your favorite boy-toy eye candy?
Josh Duhamel…(loved him as Leo in AMC, and in Vegas he’s just dreamy):
Jake Gyllenhal (oh, those eyes… )
Jonathan Rhys Meyers (have you seen The Tudors? He makes men in tights look HOT.)
Josh Harnett…more cute than hot.
Tobey Maguire…another one more cute than hot. But I love him as super-geek turned superhero Spiderman.
PS: I had actually started writing this blog several weeks ago, but never finished it. I had downloaded some of the pics, including this one…it makes me very sad to post it:
