To not fancy Brad Pitt or George Clooney and other cliches of our time

This is meant to be light-hearted and if you have an enormous crush on either (or both) of these fine actors, then fair play to you but am I alone in thinking that a lot of lazy, cliched chick lit presumes that just cos you're a heterosexual woman in your 40s you're automatically gagging for these two? Feel free to add your own most hated cliche, chick lit or otherwise.

Gilbert Blythe is my ultimate male. The highest evolution of the species. I love him. Second choice would be Smith from Sex And The City but only once he'd shaved his head. I barely noticed him with the long hair.

I am a Mr Big girl, labtest.

I fancy the characters rather than the actors, I may make an exception for Jeffrey Dean Morgan or Steve McQueen, as long as they don't speak.

I have never fancied any of the cliched hot men, my first celeb crush was Kenneth Branagh

I adore Robert Downey jr, Karl Urban, Paul Rudd, Carlo Rota, Gary Oldman and I quite fancy Christoph Waltz as well, I do like older guys.

actually I think YADBVU OP!

if less people fancied them less would pay to see their films and then all the slebs could not live in such luxury. maybe they would have to sell their 54th car!
or buy fewer diamonds
or downsize their homes
and that would be just cruel!
after all having only one poxy outdoor pool is just laughable!

Shame on you!

Nobody mentioned the beautiful one - Dave Grohl! Beats that Clooney one by a trillion miles.

DP and I both have massive crushes on Joel Kinnaman from (the American version of) The Killing. He is delicious. What DP doesn't know us that I watch YouTube videos of Kinnaman giving interviews in Swedish (he grew up there).
Related: Bradley Cooper giving interviews in French.
Zut alors. And whatever the Swedish equivalent is.

ever I've been thinking Dave grohl ll through this thread. Yum! The beard, the grunge, the gravelly voice <sigh>
