We asked -- and boy, did you ever answer. After sharing our Moviefone/Cinematical staff celebrity crushes with you, we wondered who your celeb crushes might be, and got more than 1,300 comments in response. And not all of them were for Clay Aiken.
You guys are an amazingly diverse -- and prolific -- lot. How to cut the list down from 1,300 to a more manageable number, like, say, 25? First, we eliminated those celebs who weren't actors, as interesting as those choices were. Some of the more intriguing ones: Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald on Animal Planet's Emergency Vets (anyone who's kind to dogs is probably a good boyfriend, no?), Bill Clinton (Monica's got company, I see), Sandra Lee on the Food Network's Semi-Homemade (must be something in the way she opens a package of pudding). And seriously, all you Clay Aiken fans? Wow. I don't get the attraction personally, but I've got to admire your enthusiasm.
Unfortunately, even after limiting the list only to actors, we had to cut some great and popular picks: Sean Bean, Sean Connery, Ewan McGregor, Paul Walker, Sandra Bullock, Adrian Paul, Hugh Grant, Djimon Hounsou, Vincent D'Onofrio, Natalie Portman, Kevin Costner, Colin Farrell ... just to name a few. Also, turns out a fair number of people think Kevin Spacey's a hottie -- who knew? I sure didn't.
So who'd we end up with, finally, for our gallery of fans' favorite celebrity crushes? Check it out and see -- and just for fun, we got our friends at JoBlo.com, ComingSoon.net, CanMag and DarkHorizons to contribute their own celeb crushes, too. Then come back and let us know what you think. Whew, so much love for the stars! Think Gerard Butler and Johnny Depp's ears are burning?
