So today is my one year blogaversary. If you weren’t around for the inaugural Melbourne Mum post, don’t bother, it was actually pretty shit (unlike my more recent posts which were *cough* much better).
To celebrate, I’m sharing with you my Top 5 Beefcakes (I would call them crumpets, but apparently this is a naughty word according to my husband and smacks irrevocably of “eating things”. No, I don’t understand either). Everyone needs a good celebrity free-pass (celebrity shag, whatever you want to call it) and these are mine. Beefcake to hang your hat on. That sounded better in my head.
Husband is very good about the whole thing (having his own celebrity free pass) and it just so happens that he’s rather dashing himself. This is not a blatant attempt to butter him up. It’s NOT. He rarely reads my blog anyway, and I think he’s grateful for that.
1. Jensen Ackles
When I first set eyes on Jensen (aka Dean from “Supernatural”) back in ’06 I thought I’d entered a parallel universe where Morten Harkett had stayed hot for 20 years (note: this didn’t actually happen). Husband is used to the pile of drool on the sofa at 9pm on Monday nights. He has a mop and an eye-roll handy.
2. Andrew Lincoln
Look out Jensen, there’s a new (deputy) sheriff in town! In 1997, my flatmate and I would sit down every Tuesday night for our ritual dose of Egg on “This Life”. Andrew Lincoln was a babe then, but hotter now he’s older and toting some serious character baggage and 5 o’clock shadow (he’s really good at killing zombies, too, so you know, a good guy to have around).
3. Joshua Jackson
This list is a bit Dawson’s Creek heavy, sorry about that. Joshua is a classic example of a charming goofball who went seriously hot in his 30s when he started investigating paranormal sh*t and alternate universes. There’s something quite irresistible about a babe with the comedy in him. Yeehaw!
4. Kerr Smith
There’s just something about Kerr (aka Jack from Dawson’s Creek) – I love that he’s in his 40s and going grey with laughlines all over the shop and he’s way more babelicious than he was in his DC days. Sing it. He is a bit of a shit actor, though. Let’s be honest.
5. Damian Lewis
I have a think for the Ginge (hence why I married one although he would argue that he’s “strawberry blonde”. Whatevs) and Damian does it so so well. He’s ugly pretty. In a wonderful, sexy way.
Who are your Top 5???
