5 MEN & WOMEN I'M RIDICULOUSLY ATTRACTED TO INSIDE & OUT
Only ten? How do I choose? Um. This ain't just physical objectification, folks. I swear.
- •Margot RobbieWhat I love about her: Back when she was just making it big, her "team" (publicist, agent, etc.) were not happy after they found out via paparazzi photos that she'd been snapped eating burgers, but she didn't care and still eats what she wants. She exemplifies natural beauty and a love of just living her life in the best way — body shamers be damned.
- •Jon HammWhat I love about him: America's National Treasure. No, he may not be perfect, but after a troubled youth, he really turned things around and rose above with the help of his family and close friends. As someone who is a bit of a late bloomer, I take comfort in his advice: "Don't be afraid to fail. It's not the end of the world, and in many ways, it's the first step toward learning something and getting better at it."
- •Annabelle WallisWhat I love about her: Two things: 1) "I like to think that I represent myself as a strong woman, so to work with other strong women I find very inspiring." 2) "Enjoy your friends, enjoy your time, do what you love. Like, there's no fucking point if you don't, right? And yeah, be good, just be smart about it. Like, be humble, be kind, be fuckin' good, you know? And then just... Enjoy yourself. Nobody wants to be around a moody fucker. Enjoy life and life will enjoy you. I really believe that."
- •Alex TurnerWhat I love about him: Besides his awe-inspiring command of the English language when it comes to writing song lyrics? His sense of humor, as illustrated here: https://youtu.be/zh2UetFykLQ
- •Brittany SnowWhat I love about her: Her work with Love is Louder (loveislouder.com). "Love is Louder is a project of The Jed Foundation created with actress Brittany Snow to support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone."
- •Cillian MurphyWhat I love about him: Most underrated actor ever. Here's a quotation of his that deeply resonates: "For me, it was something that took a long time to figure out: that it’s all right to be you, that it’s all right to be an individual."
- •Josephine Vander GuchtWhat I love about her: She is such a ray of sunshine! If you can't tell by her smile and kind eyes, she's always effortlessly sweet in interviews and an infinitely creative soul. "Everyone in the world is creative in some way, and everyone’s creativity is their own."
- •Daniel BrühlWhat I love about him: He's German-Spanish and multilingual; full of European charm and completely down to earth. "I enjoy passing time in my house. I’ll get up, head out on the terrace, think about what to do, fool around oiling the floorboards or hanging pictures askew."
- •Saskia RosendahlWhat I love about her: My German queen. She's an actress, ballerina, and musician, and has so much innate talent. Director Cate Shortland on casting Saskia in the film Lore: "Saskia Rosendahl came in during the last week. She’s a dancer with no acting experience. She’s got incredible natural grace and strength and is very intelligent. She played off her instincts. She’s done some drama courses at school, but that’s very different to being on a film set." Incredibly humble and polite.
- •Jamie DornanWhat I love about him: No, I've never seen Fifty Shades of Grey. But I have seen The Fall and interviews such as this one, in which Jamie is terribly, endearingly self-deprecating and proves he cannot do a French accent: https://youtu.be/wzS8ANZBRNo. He's also not into the whole Hollywood thing. Re: working post-Bastille Day attack: "It felt very frivolous and wrong to be making something as silly as a fucking movie the day after something like that happened."
