I can't figure him out.
A few years ago, I saw him on Conan (on Leno's time frame...where he should STILL BE) and fell a little bit in crush.
And I can't figure out why as he doesn't meet many of my attraction criteria.
1) He's not a bad boy.
This is pretty much a prereq for me to have a celebrity crush. I'm not stupid enough to fall in love with a bad boy or girl, but I do crush on them. I mean, didn't he date Brit Spears? Didn't they have some sort of celibacy pact at one time? This is SO not attractive to me.
2) He doesn't look like Alcide on True Blood or even Erik Northman. Or Laura Linney or Tina Fey. He isn't even all that great looking. Not that being hot is a pre req (it helps...but isn't necessary.) Example: John Cusack. I've never thought he was gorgeous but there is just this intelligence about him that I find very attractive.
3) He fits the smart criteria. I do crush on smart guys and his interviews show that he is clearly intelligent. And to act, sing and write well is pretty good. You don't always get all three in one mash up.
4) I don't like his voice all that much. It's a little high pitched for my taste.
5) I think he is funny. BIG pre req. He has that dry humor that wins points with me. And his SNL short, Dick in a Box made me laugh so hard that I choked on iced tea.
6) I honestly don't care much for his other music even though Bing tells me that he is brilliant. My foot doesn't tap when his music comes on.
So...what is it about him that makes me look up when I see him on television and why will I certainly go see his new movie? Not sure. I do know that when I was in my 20's this is EXACTLY the kind of relationship that I wanted and could never seem to get. I always wanted a "friends with benefits" relationship...loved the idea of being able to have good sex and fun times with NO strings attached. I would have excelled at that shit but I could never seem to achieve it. Because, face it, there are always a lot more people who are looking for Ms. Right than for Ms. Wrong But Fun. Which is what I was.
But, I have no idea why Justin Timberlake makes me nod and smile and go all limp kneed. Well, not limp kneed like Lee DeWyze gets me. But, limp kneed all the same.
So..here is my question for you.
Who is a celebrity that you crush on who does NOT fit your attraction criteria?
