You know, I’ve noticed something about the type of guys I am generally find attractive and this is very true in my personal life.
Accents are sexy. British, Scottish, they’re just…hot.
Now, look at the pic spam above. I had a crush on Ewan McGregor in high school, it was his accent, his singing voice, his eye colors (yes, I said eye colors since they changed quite frequently), next is James McAvoy. The first time I noticed him was when he appeared in SyFy’s ‘Dune’ as Fade. I don’t remember much about the movie but he was shirtless and I remember, wondering, who is that?
The new Superman, Mr. Henry Cavill…my crush on him didn’t start immediately. I knew he had an accent but it wasn’t until I watched an interview he did at comic con, promoting ‘The Immortals’ and talking about ‘The Man of Steel,’ and ahem, seeing him wear the new Superman costume which really focuses attention on a certain area that can no longer be ignored because it isn’t covered up by red spandex anymore, my crush for him went into over drive.
He’s not in this picspam but Gerard Butler deserves a special mention because he was sexy as hell as The Phantom in the 2004’s The Phantom of the Opera. I still watch wondering, why Christine would choose Raul over the Phantom?
Now, fast forward to today and my obsession with Once Upon a Time. My favorite character on Once is Rumpelstiltskin (seriously, who doesn’t love Rumpel?). I wouldn’t say I have a crush on Robert Carlyle but there is definitely something appealing about him. It could be the accent, his laid back personality, the interesting dynamic he brings to each characters he portrays…
But here’s the thing, I feel awkward about admitting he’s hot because Robert Carlyle is a good TWO DECADES older than me! Although, I know there are fangirls who wouldn’t hesitate to admit their love for him. I’m still…on the fence. I think the kicker for me would be hearing him sing. Then, there’s no turning back.
Anyway, enjoy the hot picspam above :)
