FOTW: Chris Pine

As promised, I do have an American guy this time around (although, I will add, he can do an excellent English accent and also studied acting in England).

Chris Pine

I fell in love with him when I saw him in Princess Diaries 2, and I've loved him in everything I've seen him in ever since. I mean, have you not seen the new Star Trek? How could you not be in love with the man? And yes, I even watched that terrible Just My Luck film he did with Lindsay Lohan JUST because he was in it.

Although I'm sure my dear friend would fight me for him, he'd be worth it. Honestly, he is gorgeous, and his blue eyes are amazing. ALSO, may I just add that he has an English degree?!!!! I mean hello, we were meant for each other!

So anyways, this week's FOTW is Chris Pine: absolutely dreamy and loves literature. Sounds like a match made in Heaven to me.

*Side note: I promise to do a real/personal post soon. A LOT of stuff has happened recently that I want to tell you all about, but it's also prevented me from typing it all up in a post. But, I promise it's coming... Be ready.

FOTW: Two For One-Second

Here's your 2nd FOTW for this week!

I recently saw this delightful young man (bah... umm he's only 3 years older than me!) in Thor, and it reminded me how much I loved him in the 5 minutes at the beginning of Star Trek that he was in before his character got killed off.

You know who I'm talking about:

Chris Hemsworth

Can I just tell you, it was so hard to pick from all of the amazingly sexy pictures on Google of him for that slideshow? No, seriously, they are like all really good and I just want to stare at all of them.

However, I will say, I definitely like him now in his Thor, bulkier, muscular self than in his younger, skinner "Home and Away" self (it was a TV show he was in in Australia). He looked very boyish, which isn't bad, but I definitely like him more manly and studlier.

Also, I think he is more attractive than his younger brother Liam* (who is the same age as my brother!) Although they are both cute, don't get me wrong:
*Who, as a side note, will be playing Gale in The Hunger Games movie.

But anyways, Thor was great, and I'm excited to see him in The Avengers as well. And... really anything else he's in. He is just so beautiful to look at AND he's Australian. Look... I'm sorry I have a thing for guys with accents. Next week I'll try to pick an American guy... :)

Bonus FOTW: Chris Hemsworth, way cuter than his brother Liam (and from what I can tell tons cuter than his older brother Luke), and definitely looks better beefed up.

FOTW: Two For One-First

So... I'm a total slacker and I missed my FOTW for last week. Don't get me wrong; I totally had one in mind and lined up, but I never got around to actually typing it up and getting it posted. So, lucky for you, you get 2 FOTW this week (I'll post the 2nd one a little later in the week)! I know... pretty exciting.

If you've been around me or follow me on Twitter/Tumblr, you'll know that ever since I saw X-Men: First Class that I absolutely loved it and fell even more in love with James McAvoy. But, since I've already had Mr. McAvoy as a FOTW, I decided it'd be best to give other beautiful men a chance and not have a repeat. Well, I also fell more in love with this man in X-Men: First Class:

Michael Fassbender

The X-Men movie was not the first thing I was lucky enough to see that handsome man in. No, I saw him in Jane Eyre and I LOVED his Rochester (and I've seen lots of versions of that movie):

He was also in Inglorious Basterds, but I have yet to see that movie. Before that he was in some crappy films, and in a lot of TV series and TV movies. But he is great and very sexy. Yes, he plays Magneto, the "bad guy" in X-Men, but he does a very good job. And the friendship that Magneto and Professor X have in this new X-Men (before Magneto becomes evil) is amazing and they (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) do such an excellent job in portraying their relationship. Also, they are incredibly cute together in interviews, and you can tell that they really are friends. (Click here for one such interview, where they interview each other.)

So, a little belated, but the first FOTW: Michael Fassbender, handsome, versatile, and did I mention that he too has an accent? :)

FOTW: 80s Edition

So, I don't know if you know this, but I have a Tumblr. It's kind of like a blog but kind of like Twitter, and I love it. I've "met" so many cool people on there and learned more about those I already knew. I like it. Don't worry, I won't be abandoning you for Tumblr, but I enjoy it. Anywhos, they have a bunch of 30-day challenges that float around on Tumblr that you can do, and being bored and in a Tumblr lull, so to speak, I decided to do one of the challenges. I picked one about movies (of course).

One of the questions (and the fact Joy Luck Club was on TV a few days ago, which I totally forgot he was in), reminded me how much I adored (and still kind of do) this man:
Andrew McCarthy

He is in one of my guilty pleasure 80s movies: Mannequin. I love it. For more explanation click here.

So yeah, I always thought Andrew McCarthy was way cute, and he's definitely not terrible looking now-a-days (see the last picture in the slideshow). In the 90s, (after his hey-day "brat pack" years in the 80s) he sure did make a lot of made for TV movies. And apparently he's been in some TV shows recently, but I haven't seen them. I still like to remember him as his 80s self. :)

FOTW: A blast from the past and a reminder of how some 80s movies will live on forever. :)
