It's simple. You all take turns naming a famous person you're attracted to who may not fit the cultural stereotype of "attractive." I happen to love this game, and I'm not sure why. Maybe because it's really fun to own up to the crushes you have who don't quite fit the norm of "crush-worthy." Let's be honest: there are a ton of really amazing, talented, appealing people in the world who don't look like Brangelina.
This past weekend, we had our favorite Marrieds visit, and in the midst of all the eating and playing around town, we played this game. I'd like to share a few of the names that came up, although I'll never tell who said what.
1. Alan Rickman
I must confess, this was one of mine. Maybe it's his accent. I can't explain it and I don't think I should have to.
2. Bill Murray
3. Fionnula Flanagan
4. Philip Seymour Hoffman
5. Sarah Jessica Parker
OK, OK. I feel a little bad including SJP here. Not only has she been my imaginary BFF for years, but I just don't believe she belongs on this list. At the same time, I've heard from a ton of people who don't think she's quote-unquote conventionally pretty, so there you have it.
6. Woody Allen
7. Ronald Reagan
You guys! Yes, I loved President Reagan back in the day, but I had no idea he was so foxy in his pre-president years. Check him out! That doesn't look like Nancy to me...
Anyone else you think should join the list?
