We all have crushes we shouldn't have; maybe you've fallen for their charms but they're really quite nasty, or maybe it simply will never happen. As with most normal people, I find it quite easy to accept that any hot celebrity crush I have is merely a fantasy. This probably has something to do with the slightly ridiculous level of their beauty (you'll find plenty of examples of beautiful boys if you look under the slightly misleading tag of 'my cultural education'), which elevates them to a shelf of unattainability which is just way too far out of reach and gets dusty and old pretty fast.
Maybe it's for this reason that real-life crushes are so much harder to let go of. However right he absolutely is for me, James Franco and I will never be together but however wrong that real guy is for me, we might maybe just possibly have a chance.
But that still doesn't explain the reason for some other seriously long-term celebrity loves I've had, the ones which my friends ridicule me for and should probably fall squarely under the category 'crushes you just shouldn't have'. I'm sure you all have people like this too, and I'd love it if you shared.
These men all have children who are approximately my own age, and although I obviously disagree, their looks have definitely been called into question. The only way I can explain this otherwise inexplicable infatuation must be their talent. And so, in Oscar speech style perfectly befitting these talented actors, I dedicate this post to those crushes I just shouldn't have.
