Who is your Onscreen Crush? (Apart from me)

Postby Cpt Kirks 2pay on Sun Sep 04, 2016 9:39 pm

Well this should be an easy thread that should stay at the top without that wanker, TheButcher, burying it with his boring thread bump posts which are always met with indifference and ignorance. SO...

Who is your cinematic crush? Be it as a kid or grown up? Mancrush/girlcrush - AND EXPLAIN WHY!!! This is a discussion/argument thread, not a list thread!

Like these guys here...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NF06CE ... S65JvA3bx9 (Famous actors like Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Denzel Washington saying who their famous actor crushes are...)

As for me, I can't think of who my crushes were as a kid, I didn't have a constant fave actress, though I got naughty thoughts over Jessica Lange in King Kong, Maren Jensen and Cassiopea from Battlestar Galactica and the Devillish Pamela Hensley from Buck Rogers then hitting adelosence with Supergirl as a 12 year old but nothing as profound as Audrey Hepburn etc.

But what are yours? Apart from me as the film extra who's films have made more than Harrison Ford's?

Fuck off TheButcher, don't you DARE bury this thread.

I always thought that young Paul Newman... hell, even old Paul Newman embodied masculinity in a way that feels timeless. Not like Humphrey Bogart or Rudolph Valentino who people of our generation can't really relate to. No offense Bogey.

Watching Paul Newman in Butch Cassidy made me consider just how charismatic he was in wondering how much of that was just pure natural and how much charisma had been worked on and developed by him. Was it a way of talking, inner confidence, working on his body language and his best facial mannerisms etc. that increased his star charisma? Made me wonder if there was something I could do to myself to boost such charisma of myself to increase my presence too, whether in real life or onscreen.

Then I read a quote from Newman where he said that it doesn't matter how good an actor you are, if the camera don't love you - it's over. Which kinda made me think that charisma has less to do with you creating it and it's just natural 'born that way' good looks and physical charm etc to make that charisma and there's not a lot else that can be done to create this.

So fuck it. No acting career for me.

What is a mancrush anyway, specifically? Is it just admiring a male actor for many reason and not fancying them, or is it simply you being well Dumbledore for them? Male Zoners - I'm really flattered and everything but I'm simply - not Dumbledore!

Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman was a no brainer. As for film, Racquel Welch in One Million Years BC. That fur bikini..........yowza.


BTW, nice to see you're still among the living Kirk. And those horrible rumors of you meeting your demise in an elevator shaft in Ukraine were totally unfounded.

A mancrush is when you feel feelings that are weird, and deeply confusing. So you push the feelings down... way, way down.

i had nightly fantasies about olivia newton-john in those skin-tight pants at the end of Grease for about a year. luckily for my parents, i was pre-puberty and hadn't discovered masturbation yet, or their laundry bills would have gone through the roof.

Kerri Green.... oh my God did I have a onscreen crush on this girl in my teen years.

Goonies, Lucas, Summer Rental (bikini!). So fucking cute, not overtly sexy, almost attainable fantasy. Holy crap did I love this girl!

I just realised that this thread is the same as my 'ACTORS YOU WANT TO SHAG' thread. Also all this talk of not really attainable girls is a bit redundant and something none of us should be talking about I just realised after having a real hottie Superlike me on Tinder only for it to be an accident and her unmatching me.

You are all too ugly for these actors you fancy and you should wake up to this fact, then die.

So I'm done with this thread. Locking it now.

so far it's been more of a "childhood screen crushes" thread which i guess is slightly different from "actors you want to shag", but the fact that Kirks started two of these threads tells us something about you, Kirks. how many actresses have gotten a restraining order against you so far?

Yeah I'm inclined to let this one live (and die) on its own.
