    Obviously I need to watch more telly if my marriage is ever to survive.

  2. Her Grace says:

    I can’t decide what’s funnier — this post, or the tags.

    Approved adultery!

  3. Wayfarer Scientista says:

    laugh! I enjoyed this although I have little clue as to who either the more popular or non-popular celebs are having never had a television and having spent long periods living on a rock where movies aren’t available.

  4. furiousBall says:

    did this exercise with my ex once and at the top of her list… Toby McGuire.


    Toby is not a list topper. Toby is a cocker spaniel.

  5. Claire says:

    Oh my sweet Jesus, LMFAO!
    Vincent D’onofrio
    Gerard Butler
    hummina, hummina…
    btw- my 1st boyfriend turned out to be gay too, ha, ha!

  6. flutter says:

    Well, now. I think I need a moment alone…

  7. chelle says:

    haha I didn’t even notice the tags … HAHAHA

  8. kimber the wolfgrrrl says:

    Oh, I love Evora — but what are the chances that she, too, would be shopping for cleaning products at the perfect time? I suppose one ought not examine the probability factor in fantasies…

  9. cathy says:

    Did someone mention
    Vincent D’Onofrio?

    Your marriage is a source if joy to me! Which is just as well in the circumstances.

  10. AmyTree says:

    Aah, the pre-approved adultery list, source of joy to millions. His is Kylie Minogue, mine is Alan Rickman (and perhaps a couple of others, now I think of it). It’s a good thing, that list…

  11. Jazz says:

    I had no idea this person existed somewhere in the universe!

    I’ll fight you for him. Damn he’s hot.

  12. lime says:


    and i agree about michael’s superiority to brad. brad does nothing for me. never has.

    so as to not interupt the interlude in the febreeze aisle i’ll be sure to go clear across the store to the seasonal section for my tryst with hugh jackman.

  13. Diana says:

    I have The Wire all queued up in Netflix and will soon turn my attention to it. I’ll watch every last bit with you in mind, as I sweat and groan on the treadmill in the dark basement, in front of the TV.

    For now, I’m a-watching Rome, which I recommend for purely educational reasons and NOT the toga-candy.

  14. Claudia says:

    My famous get out of the marriage bed free celeb. is David Duchovny. The man is sex on legs.

  15. Glamourpuss says:

    “Shia LeBeouf”? You made that up, right? No one would ever have such a ridiculous name…


  16. Shieldmaiden96 says:

    This is a very interesting exercise. I’ll have to discuss it with Himself later. I know his shortlist includes Steffi Graf (they have the same birthday), but beyond that I’m mystified. He accused me last night of being ‘into’ Colin Farrell, but I’m afraid he is mistaken; despite the accent he actually gives me the heebies. Liam Neeson, maybe.
    The Indian doctor from Heroes, DEFINITELY.

  17. SQT says:

    Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig for sure.

    Hubby is all into Carrie Underwood.

  18. citizen of the world says:

    “Give me crooner Lyle Lovett or producer Don Was or interviewer Charlie Rose over leading man Shia LeBeouf and his wispy faux-brooding any day.” The only name on this list I even recognized was Lovett and my thought was Lyle Lovett? Seriously??

    Ah, well, to each her own. But I’ll never be able to walk into a Target again.

  19. pistols at dawn says:

    I find his work in “Trapped in the Closet” to be just as compelling and rich.

  20. Ann(ie) says:

    um. YUM. AND I’m cracking up over furiousball’s ex and Toby Mcguire. Cocker Spaniel is right!!!

  21. geewits says:

    I did my celebrity “wish” list on my blog in Decenber 2005 and this made me go back and look at it. My tastes change on a regular basis, but I would definitely keep 4 out of the 5. One thing I have learned, and the best way to put it is, as my granny used to say, “There’s no accountin’ for taste.”

  22. Pendullum says:

    A ‘Classic’ post Ms. Jocelyn…
    A Classic post!

  23. Casdok says:

    Ah the secret to a happy marriage!!

  24. Anonymous says:

    The gays call this the Keanu Reeves Clause. For good reason.


  25. Minnesota Matron says:

    Oh my God. Are we married? In the early 90’s, mine was Jeff Bridges and my darling husband used to joke that he pined for Mulcahy Culkin!

  26. Dorky Dad says:

    I read this post and had a comment all ready to go, then I read FuriousBall’s comment that her ex had Toby Maguire at the top of her list. Now I’m thinking that Furious probably shouldn’t feel bad that she’s his ex.

  27. Princess Pointful says:

    You are deliciously fantastic.
    I’ll take Jon Stewart and my burger with pickles, please.

  28. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    Johnny Depp if I were younger and he didn’t smoke like a chimney; Sean Connery if I were older; Marvin Gaye if I were dead, too; Jackson Browne, who looks a lot like Flip so what’s the point, really?

    Still, it’s good to have a back-up plan. Into every life some Febreze must fall.

  29. veits says:

    So, I sit here in a motel room in Butte, America on the eve of my aunt’s funeral listening to Cesaria Evora plugged directly in my ears and thinking about Jason Bateman (#1 on your list of 10, I might add) as the family sleeps in the two double beds behind me. Oh…but for a Febreze aisle…
