Day 20: Post three celebrity crushes
This shouldn’t exactly come as a surprise seeing as I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion my love of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton combined. I’ve had a crush on Depp for years and I don’t know where it originated from but it was likely from “Edward Scissorhands.” He’s the master of quirky characters but he can make your heart break for characters like George Jung from “Blow.” I find him versatile seeing as he’s done horror, thriller, comedy, drama and musical and he makes it all seem so natural. My favorite of his characters? Probably a tie between Edward and and Barnabus Collins.
I’m next to positive I am one of the few who became aware of Tom Hiddleston through his work in Shakespeare rather than the Marvel Universe. Most know him as Loki, the god of mischief from “The Avengers” and the Thor movies but I know him as Prince Hal and Henry V from Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part I & II and Henry V. I’m a Shakespeare nerd and when I bought The Hollow Crown, I absolutely loved his portrayal of the character. He may be my eternal “Man crush Monday.”
Another of my vampire loves but even when he walks off set I adore him. I was a big “True Blood” fan back in the day and loved the dry yet mischievous Eric Northman (please note, I was Team Eric, not Team Bill). I’m looking forward to the new season of “American Horror Story” honestly for many reasons but a huge part of it is because he’s joining the cast.
Bonus: Tom Hiddleston giving the opening monologue from Henry V while on “Hoppus on Music.”
