My funny Valentines...


***I decided to write a fun little post tonight, so as to get myself into "daydreaming" mode. Im trying to keep my mind busy with trivial things for my own sanity. As you may already know by now, times are hard in Greece and we need all the distraction we can get...***

I don't get the Valentine's celebration. When you're single, isn't it a cruel reminder of your ex boyfriends? And then, when you're in a relationship, you are forced to go out for dinner in overcrowded restaurants, or you get over-streesed about what would be the perfect gift for your boyfriend. Ugh...

But, I digress.

Let me show you some of my imaginary Valentines- aka my favourite actors that their performance is so captivating every time, I admire them for their talent...
Ok, their looks help as well!
... ...
... ...
... ...
Alright, I'll rephrase: screw pretences. To me, these men are oozing sexiness! I have to warn you though, there's no George Clooney, Brad Pitt or Jude Law in my list! Heck no, I'm not that conventional...


Starting with my old-Hollywood crushes: Marcello Mastroianni. Ah, what a man! I probably relate to him more because he's Italian, and you know what they say about Greeks and Italians- una faccia, una razza! He was so adorable in "Ieri, Oggi, Domani" with Sophia Lauren, I wonder why these two didn't hook up in real life... Then of course, there's Carry Grant. Nothing more to add here, the man's the epitome of style!


Then, we have Robert Redford. When he was younger, obviously... Who didn't cry in "The Way We Were"? Steve McQueen, the cool, scruffy American who starred in some mediocre movies but boy wasn't he handsome!


Now here comes the "strange" part of my lust list: John Malkovich. Yes, I actually find the man sexy. He is so ugly, he has grown a terrible baldness- but oh, the way he speaks is like whispering dirty talk on my ears! Willem Dafoe is another weird crush of mine... I don't know, must be the wrinkles? His angular face? His hair?!? Whatever it is, I find him so hot that I wanna marry him. And believe me, I'm not the marrying kind!


My latest crush: Kenneth Branagh. Can't explain it either. I'll have to watch "My Week with Marilyn" only for his sake!


I feel so old-school to add Antonio Banderas on this list, but there's a disclaimer: I only loved him in "The Skin I Live In", as the character he was playing was far from the Latino-lover caricature he's played over and over the past few years! Comprende?

To finish this pathetic excuse of a blog post, here's Matt Damon singing "My Funny Valentine" from "The Talented Mr Ripley". Enjoy!



That's it guys, my list of current Valentines.
Which was pretty ridiculous. I hope you had a good laugh!
Now, let me know your crushes!!!

Note to Kostis: darling, please don't be offended by this post! See, I even put Robert Redford in my list, your so-called "lookalike"... Ok? Mwah :*

      Άσε, κι εγώ ποτέ δε συμπαθούσα τη συγκεκριμένη γιορτή. Είτε ήμουν single ή δεσμευμένη. Ευτυχώς, κρατάει μόνο μια μέρα! Φιλιά πολλά!!!

    2. Don't! My dad is now 78 and age was not very kind to him.. people always look at me, then look at him and say 'so you take after your mother yes?' LOL!! Or they think my 50 year old brother is my dad and that he is my grandad.. not good!!
      Here is hoping I get my mum's genes!!!!!

      Delete
    3. Hahaha darling if you had inherited bad genes, it would have definitely shown by now! I took by my dad who got grey hair too early and I'm already seeing some white bits on mine. Snif...

    1. Κι εγώ, κι εγώ! Και το καλύτερο με τον Redford είναι πως στα γεράματά του δεν ξεκούτιανε και παραμένει ακμαίος και παραγωγικός. xx

  6. Nice post! i don't dissaprove anyone on your list! ;) And at LAST someone who understands me! I find both John Malcovich and Willem Dafoe incredibly sexy too! My friends always make fun of me of course. A recent discovery is Michael Fassbender and i have to admit i drool whenever i see Hugh Jackman...not because of the muscles, but the guy can act, sing, dance...he's so charming! Plus have you seen him on "the fountain"?! "Λιγούρι mode" - off! (no need to say the most handsome of them all is my boyfriend, right? χαχαχαχα!!)

    1. Yes, yes you're so right, we need to mention that the most handsome will always be our boyfriends! Otherwise, mine will get jealous...

      I'm so, so glad we have the same interest in John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe!!! I thought I was the only one with that strange taste in men :/ And yes, a guy that knows how to dance is so sexy! Amen to that! xx
