    My goal is to have George Clooney produce, much to the chagrin of my DH.

    My girlfriends all volunteered to be my assistants and my assorted "people" when I took that meeting.

    LOL!

    Ah, if wishes were horses...

    You snuck this by me, Cathy, but I don't know him. I Googled him, and he's certainly nice looking! But can he do cheating-and-distant-yet-still-heroic-and-attractive Norseman?

    Or how about darkly-dirty-looks-like-he'd-smell-but-still-strangely-attractive-in-spite-of-it Norseman?

    Those are the two roles we're casting. And they'd have to be in their twenties.

    Oh! Don't tell my DH! He's worried enough as it is! Clooney's my one-and-only famous guy crush.

    I think I posted this before, but it's funny enough (to me, anyway!) to tell again: when I told DH my fantasy path for the book, I got to the part where Clooney was going to produce, and DH interrupted me with a frantic, "No! Not him. No! I have to say no!"

    As if it were real!

    I reassured him that our marriage is safe. He still looked shaken.

    At least I know the guy loves me, huh? laugh

    I do not know why, but I think that George Clooney is homosexual.
    I do not say this in any derogatory way, in fact I like him and his movies and his line of thought.

    Has anyone seen 'Pan's Labyrinth'? Is a Spanish movie about the end of the civil war and I find it really touching, specially because the protagonist, a young girl reminds me a lot of my own DD - or how I think DD would be at that age.

    Interesting. As a heartthrob for the older set, he's certainly the kind of guy who couldn't come out without harming his career.

    Still, I don't think he's gay. I see too much evidence that he likes the ladies and a definite lack of rumors to the contrary. Usually if there's reason to believe someone in Hollywood is hiding something, people go nuts with the rumors and photographers make much of every possible indiscretion. Nary a peep.

    I think he's just a fun-loving playboy who has a fear of commitment, possibly in part because it's hard to trust that anyone cares about him for him and not just for his fame and money. Frankly, if I were George Clooney, with his talent and looks and money and freedom to do as he likes, I'm not sure I'd behave a whole lot differently than he does with his serial monogamy. I'd like to think I would, but I'm not sure. And I would say that I have a pretty solid set of values.

    <shrug> So ends my long-distance psychoanalysis of my crush... wink

    Kriston: he soooo much reminds me a friend of us who is gay (actually bi with preference for gay).

    They would actually be a really good looking couple LOL !

    Anyway, he can be whatever he likes as far as he does good movies.

    My crush is for Jeremy Irons by the way.

    I'm having a good time laughing at myself today. Being from the southwestern part of Ohio, and the age bracket I am, I thought of NICK Clooney as the heartthrob of the older set!
