My top 10 movie crushes

Last week the lovely Table 9 Mutant over at Cinema Parrot Disco did a post on her top 10 movie crushes. It was such a cool post that I decided to steal borrow the idea for this week’s top 10 and talk about my movie crushes from over the years. Some are weird…

warm_bodiesR in Warm Bodies (2013)
Played by: Nicholas Hoult
Typical or atypical crush: Hard to tell… I mean Hoult is a total hotty (even if he’s like a million years too young for me) but he does look dead for most of the film.
What makes him hot: His total awkwardness and his devotion to Julie against the odds
“R: [voice-over] So much for dreaming. You can’t be whatever you want. All I’ll ever be is a slow, pale, hunched-over, dead-eyed zombie. What did I think was gonna happen? That she’d actually want to stay with me? It’s hopeless. This is what I get for wanting more. I should just be happy with what I had. Things don’t change. I need to accept that. It’s easier not to feel. Then I wouldn’t have to feel like this.

types-of-dishonesty-brendan-fraserDavid Green in School Ties (1992)
Played by: Brendan Fraser
Typical or atypical crush: Typical.
What makes him hot: The eyes… it’s all in the eyes.
“Dr. Bartram: …and the meek shall inherit the earth.
David Green: I wonder how meek they’ll be when they do, sir.

tumblr_mg08bxOOTt1ridrfxo1_500Tom in (500) Days of Summer (2009)
Played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Typical or atypical crush: Typical
What makes him hot: His sleepy eyes and his fearless approach to love
Tom: It’s official. I’m in love with Summer.
“[while Montage of Summer plays]
Tom: I love her smile. I love her hair. I love her knees. I love how she licks her lips before she talks. I love her heart-shaped birthmark on her neck. I love it when she sleeps.

tumblr_lg78npfr9g1qfuar1o1_500Alex in Everything is Illuminated (2005)
Played by: Eugene Hutz
Typical or atypical crush: Pretty atypical
Why is he hot: I honestly have no idea. He really shouldn’t be.
“Alex: Many girls want to be carnal with me… because I’m such a premium dancer!

tumblr_ldlpixqPW91qa54hvo1_500Westley in The Princess Bride (1987)
Played by: Cary Elwes
Typical or atypical crush: Typical
What makes him so hot: Not only is he a stone cold fox but he’s also brave, strong and very, very smart
“Westley: Hear this now: I will always come for you.
Buttercup: But how can you be sure?
Westley: This is true love – you think this happens every day?

imagesDean Moriarty in On the Road (2012)
Played by: Garrett Hedlund
Typical or atypical crush: Typical but so wrong
What makes him hot: He is just so alive… even if he is quite possibly the worst partner ever
“Dean Moriarty: Yes, yes, yes, I gotta go now, fever Sal. Goodbye.

hollywoodlandLouis Simo in Hollywoodland (2006)
Played by: Adrien Brody
Typical or atypical crush: Atypical
What makes him hot: He’s really sleazy but he’s so charming
“Louis Simo: Lady, I can nail you with this.
Leonore Lemmon: D’Artagnan, you couldn’t nail me with roses and a trip to Vegas.”

Heath LedgerPatrick Verona in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Played by: Heath Ledger
Typical or atypical: Typical… this is when everyone fell in love with him
What makes him hot: He’s the perfect bad boy, wild, dangerous, edgy but kind and sensitive underneath the hard exterior
“Kat Stratford: You can’t just buy me a guitar every time you screw up, you know?
Patrick: Yeah, I know. But then, you know, there’s always drums, and bass, and maybe even one day a tambourine.

don-juan-de-marcoDon Juan in Don Juan DeMarco (1994)
Played by: Johnny Depp
Typical or atypical: Typical
What makes him hot: It’s Johnny Depp! Also Don Juan is the ultimate romantic
“Don Juan: By seeing beyond what is visible to the eye. Now there are those, of course, who do not share my perceptions, it’s true. When I say that all my woman are dazzling beauties, they object. The nose of this one is too large; the-the hips of another, they are too wide; perhaps the breasts of a third, they are too small. But I see these women for how they truly are… glorious, radiant, spectacular, and perfect, because, I am not limited by my eyesight. Women react to me the way that they do, Don Octavio, because they sense that I search out the beauty that dwells within until it overwhelms everything else. And then they cannot avoid their desire, to release that beauty and envelope me in it. So, to answer your question, I see as clear as day that this great edifice in which we find ourselves is your villa. It is your home. And as for you, Don Octavio DeFlores, you are a great lover like myself, even though you may have lost your way and your accent. Shall I continue?

MCDKNTA EC032Chaucer in A Knight’s Tale (2001)
Played by: Paul Bettany
Typical or atypical crush: Atypical, especially in a movie that stars Heath Ledger as a knight
What makes him hot: Wit, confidence, his incredible bone structure
“Chaucer: You’re good. You’re very good. My lords, my ladies, and everybody else here not sitting on a cushion!
[crowd roars]
Chaucer: Today… today, you find yourselves equals.
[crowd roars]
Chaucer: For you are all equally blessed. For I have the pride, the privilege, nay, the pleasure of introducing to you to a knight, sired by knights. A knight who can trace his lineage back beyond Charlemagne. I first met him atop a mountain near Jerusalem, praying to God, asking his forgiveness for the Saracen blood spilt by his sword. Next, he amazed me still further in Italy when he saved a fatherless beauty from the would-be ravishing of her dreadful Turkish uncle.
[crowd, boo]
Chaucer: In Greece he spent a year in silence just to better understand the sound of a whisper. And so without further gilding the lily and with no more ado, I give to you, the seeker of serenity, the protector of Italian virginity, the enforcer of our Lord God, the one, the only, Sir Ulllrrrich von Lichtenstein!
[crowd roars]
Chaucer: Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week.

Who are your top movie crushes?


  1. Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark….sigh x

    1. Abbi

      Totally hot.

  2. theipc

    Adrienne Barbeau in Escape From New York


    1. Abbi

      Had to Google her cos I’ve never seen it… but yeah totally hot.

  3. I knew Westley would make it in ha

    1. Abbi

      How could he not? *Swoon*

  4. Nice post. Love to see some “unconventional” picks here.

    1. Abbi

      While I do enjoy a “pretty” boy often wit, charm and confidence can be even more attractive.

  5. […] Click to Read the Full Article HERE […]

  6. Mmmm. Westley. Yep. 🙂

  7. Glad you decided to borrow this idea. ; ) Love the list! Mine was so 80s & sad. Lol. Tom from (500) Days Of Summer came VERY close to making mine – I just feel more protective of him in a motherly way because I’m so old! Agree on Heath being very sexy in 10 Things – I SO need to watch that again as it’s been years since I’ve seen it! OMG – I’ve not seen On The Road but he looks HOT in that picture!!! And I read (most of) the book and know that’s the kind of character I’d go for… I may need to watch that. Plus, I have a terrible unhealthy confession to make – I think I go for guys with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths. Lol. (Don’t smoke, kids! It’s bad for you!!!)

    1. Abbi

      It’s such a great idea. Yours was lovely! It’s definitely a protective thing with Tom. I’m always looking for a boy who needs a little looking after. Oh and I so get the smoking thing. I think the era we grew up in all the cool people on screen smoked. We were indoctrinated successfully. I still almost always write male characters with a fag in hand.

  8. I think this is my fave post idea ever. I totally want to copy and do one too. 🙂

    1. Abbi

      You totally should!

      1. Yes u got my wheels spinning now on this… Heath Ledger sighhhhhhhhhh

  9. AH! I love this list!

    1. Abbi

      Thanks! I’d love to see yours.

      1. You really had me contemplating that here, between you and Cinema Disco Parrot… I think I just may do one!

        1. Abbi

          Do it! Do it! Do it!

          1. Oki fine, you have me convinced! 😀

  10. […] at Cinema Parrot Disco did this list of her top ten movie crushes, and the idea was seconded by Abbi over at Where The Wild Things Are, my arm got twisted,and here is my very own list (nope, no […]

  11. Yay, I love that you chose Chaucer! I adore that character! Totally had forgotten him though. I don’t like Shannyn Sossamon, so it always takes me forever to rewatch that film. Thanks for reminding!

    1. Abbi

      He’s such a cool character. I agree on Shannyn Sossamon. She’s beautiful but so annoying.

  12. […] couple of weeks ago I did a top 10 on the male movie characters I’ve had the biggest crushes on over the years and while I am […]

  13. […] read Zoe’s list at The Sporadic Chronicles who was inspired by Cinema Parrot Disco and Where The Wild Things Are crush lists. So after reading all three, I thought clearly I should share mine […]

  14. […] I started a huge Crush Craze on WordPress with My Top Ten Movie Crushes HERE. Then Abbi did HER LIST & Zoe did HERS. Then, wow! We had: SCI-FI DRAMA QUEEN, MIKEYB, CRAIG & RGAGNE all join in. […]

  15. Kim

    Oh my gosh, stumbled upon this when looking up Eugene Hutz, and totally love the list! A couple of these movies I haven’t seen, but now definitely will – I’m right there with you on these crushes!

    1. Abbi

      Thanks! I love a bit of Eugene Hutz and I am still not sure why. Hahaha!

  16. eugene hutz is the man! have you seen his tache recently? love his music, need to watch that movie still. thanks for reminding me! kind regards from a usually silent reader 🙂

    1. abbiosbiston

      It’s a great film! He really is very sexy but I somewhat lost respect for him after watching a documentary called The Pied Piper of Hutzovina where he completely took the filmmaker for a ride. A complicated character indeed.
