And now to class this joint up... here goes my third annual "freebie five" post! Every year around Valentine's Day I step outside that cuddly romantic tradition and list the five guys who I would (theoretically!) sleep with despite my marital vows... take that, Saint Valentine!
Unlike George Michael or Newt Gingrich, I am not a big fan of cheating or open relationships. That being said, we all have a pulse and an imagination, and it is fun to speculate. So we talk about the "freebie five", which is a list of five celebrities so attractive that your significant other must let you sleep with them, consequence-free, should that unbelievable opportunity ever arise. The idea was popularized in an episode of "Friends" when each character listed their five, Ross named Isabella Rossellini, and then literally bumped into her... and fumbled it.
Awesome as she is, Isabella Rosselini is not on my list. Who is? Who would be on your list?
Here's my new list, in no particular order, and with a very clearly stated preference for my husband (who typically adds his list in the comments, look for Ricky Martin)...
1- Jimmy Fallon: Because smart and funny are sexy. So is smirky. And a guy-next-door with killer smile...
2- Shemar Moore - over the last year we have become hooked on the disturbing Criminal Minds, despite its creepy violence and total lack of male nudity. Moore is handsome and super fit. And he can act... I think... who's paying attention to that?
3- Chris Evans: The hunky boy-next-door, Gucci model and star of What's Your Number and Captain America can act and has a penchant for dropping his shirt in movies. And speaks proudly of his gay brother and advocates marriage equality. That's killer attractive... 4- Nick Youngquest: Handsome Australian professional rugby league footballer and sometime model. Need I say more?
5- Jesse Williams: the Grey's Anatomy actor likes to play doctor (yep, I went for that cheesy easy pun)... 6- Brad Pitt: actor, producer, activist, dad to 345 kids, and maybe a Moneyball Oscar winner next week... And yes for those of you keeping track, that is six not five.... my blog, my rules!
