This article on Thought Catalogue inspired me to compose my own list of 10 Older Male Crushes. You see, I dig older guys. I’ve never really dated (more than a couple of dates, I mean) someone significantly older. But, I sure have thought about it. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order.
1. The Dude who plays Blomkvist in the Swedish Girl With A Dragon Tattoo movies.
He’s not conventionally attractive. He’s rough around the edges, but intensely curious and saving lives on-screen is HOT. I would love to be chased through the Swedish wilderness with him, if you know what I mean.
2. Jack Nicholson.
He’s too old. But, there’s something undeniably sexy about his “F You” attitude. I imagine him teaching me about scotch over dinner somewhere dark, getting me drunk, then taking me back to his old man apartment and having his way with me. Or something.
3. Chris Noth.
Come on, his is Mr.. Big after all. The whole “dangling a carrot in front of you then snatching it back, then almost letting you have it, then snatching it back, then sorta giving it to you, then snatching it back” thing is incredibly frustrating and alluring as shit. Did you know that frustration is the bastard son of attraction. When was the last time you were attracted to someone who didn’t frustrate the hell out of you?
4. Anderson Cooper.
My gay husband. Those eyes. The grey hair. Those arms. The whole putting yourself in harms way to get the story thing. It’s ridiculous how hot he is. I love it when he gets a little sassy with his guests (I watch his show in CNN religiously). I find myself saying “you go, girl” while silently wishing he actually went for girls. Sigh.
5. George Clooney.
The obvious choice here. He’s 50. Oh what I would do to this 50 year-old. You can use your imaginations.
More of this ridiculousness to come!
