Georgie Porgie Puddin’ and Pie

Okay, I can’t help it. I don’t care how old and how grey (HOT) and how unsettled George Clooney is, the man has forever got it. 

Tonight I rented and watched Leatherheads, a cutsie movie in which Georgie Boy plays opposite Renee Zelwiger in a retro 20’s football flick. Personally, up to this point in her career Renee hasn’t done anything for me, and in fact I’ve wondered what all the fuss was about. But tonight I loved her.

At first I thought maybe it was a maturity thing, but I’ve changed my mind. Frankly, this movie is proof that George Clooney makes any woman look good. The way that man looks at a girl makes my toes curl. Remember One Fine Day? The whole kissing scene at the end? Take me now, George. I would shave my legs for you, I would I would!

And while we’re discussing hot men in general (and we all know NO ONE rings my bell like my own secret agent man), what’s happened to Matthew McConaughey lately? Ten years ago my roomies and I would grab a Zuka Juice with some ginseng in it and go watch him on the big screen. I swear that man with his shirt off could send me into fits of hyperventilation (might have had something to do with the ginseng). But he’s kind of lost his blush. I used to wish he and Brad Pitt would star in a remake of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (since Pitt reminds me of Redford and Matty reminds me of our dearly departed Newman). 

But back to Clooney. I hate agreeing with female fans that someone with his impossible reputation could possibly be attractive to a woman as intelligent, cultured and tastefully refined as I, and in fact I fight the desire to watch him on the big screen, and yet…he does this whole head tilt, pause and look through his lashes (the man has LASHES) while going in for the kiss only to wait just a second longer than you think he’s going to before BAM. He kisses her. Bliss. 

And that, my friends, is worth paying big bucks at the Red Box to see.


  1. I could not even agree with you more about McConaughey. Remember him in that John Grisham movie? HOT!!!! And now, crazy.

    Good luck on planting the uterus, buddy.

  2. George, absofreakinglutely! Matty, I’m gonna be honest, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed. And then there’s my boy, Heath (so sad) and Christian Bale, and…

  3. Ew, Annie, ew!!! Please tell me you’re joking. George Clooney makes me want to… I don’t know… do something negative. And McConaughey plays the same character in every movie he’s ever been in.

    I couldn’t agree with you more, Mary, but I can’t help myself about George. Maybe I’m just a little too lonely…

  5. I’ll let this one slide, since you’re all lonely and stuff, but really, George Clooney? Ok, ok, he has SOME charm. SOME. But let’s go for someone with bigger pecks next time, ok?

    Yeah, like I have any room to talk on this whole celebrity crush thing. I once wrote about the hotness of Mr. Tumnus. (It’s in my archive somewhere if you’re ever feeling bored – – or like if too many people give you a hard time for liking George Clooney and you need to feel better about your crush standards.)

  6. There will never be another Paul Newman. If only I had been in my prime while he was in his… And yes, Matthew M. may look like him, but he’s really only a cheap substitute completely lacking the class and twinkling eyes of Mr. Hottest-Man-To-Ever-Live-Newman.

    I can’t stand it that he died. The wolrd will never be the same.

  7. Georgie has always done it for me too. Even when I was 12 years old back in his ER days…all these years he still makes my heart pound. Still not a big fan of blondie though.

  8. I hate how her face is always so pinched…I think that’s what it might be.

  9. I have never really got all HOT about movie stars. I don’t know what it is my husband will ask and he doesn’t believe me that I don’t think they are hot! I don’t know maybe my mom dropped me when I was little. But that doesn’t stop me from saying – grab a movie and enjoy!

  10. Brad Pitt, maybe . . . but the other two? It’s a good thing we all have different tastes. Matthew M. makes me want to upchuck, can’t stand the man . . . again, each to her own!

  11. I love George Clooney! Wasn’t that movie such a surprise! I actually liked it, and I’m not a big Renee fan either, but she surprised me! George Clooney was sooo cute with John Krazinski. They were so fun together.

  12. I mentioned to Anne one time that I talked to a woman and she almost threw me out of the house. I learned my lesson quick. Now I read this. LOL! 😉

  13. Well, Matty’s a daddy now…he’s got better things to do than make millions of dollars so women can swoon! And if Georgie is so hot, why hasn’t he ever settled down?

    And I don’t need all those hotties…Tom Hanks does it for me.

  14. Dude, George is hot. But “Jim” (The Office … what’s his real name anyways?) sends me shivers up my spine and I would gladly lose it to him if he asked me to. I like nerds, so what, huh?

  15. Too funny! It’s so amusing to read all the different opinions here. I personally, have always thought George Clooney was hot. I like the greying thing. I like Matt too. Not so much the way he looks as the way he talks, I think. Renee Zellwegger has annoyed me in everything that she’s been in. Her voice just about ruined Jerry McGuire for me.

  16. Annie, your husband has been gone soooo long hasn’t he!? 🙂

    Only 7 more weeks! keep working on your manuscripts!

  17. My feelings exactly.



    Freakily so.
