Top 5 Tuesday: Celebrity Girl Crushes

The topic of today's blog post was born out of a morning conversation with some coworkers. Yep, you read that right. We were discussing other celebrity girl crushes that we had. (Mind you these were all women I was speaking with.)

I guess I should first define what a girl crush is: feelings of admiration, adoration or appreciation that a girl has for another girl. This is non-sexual, it's more like veneration.

My girl crushes are my girl crushes for a variety of reasons. I'll elaborate a bit on who they are and why I'm crushing on them in today's Top 5 Tuesday post. :)

Dang that Carrie Underwood. I mean, she's blond, southern, gorgeous and has an amazing voice. Oh, and a great pair of legs too! I've hunted all over The Internets for "Carrie's Legs" workout videos. HA! Now, I've never met Ms. Carrie, but I would imagine she's just as down-to-earth as she seems.

Oh JLaw. I really like her. She seems real and humble and very hilar. Of course, she's beautiful and seems to have a great sense of style. She took a tumble while accepting an award and still played it off well with her quirky sense of humor. Case in point - the below quotes from her...

"In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I'll be the only actress that doesn't have anorexia rumors! I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I'm invincible. I don't want little girls to be like, "Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner!"

"I'm a horrible dancer!... I'm like a dad at prom... I look like Gumby getting electrocuted."

[when asked in the Oscar Press Room, about what happened when she tripped on the stairs while accepting the award for Best Actress] "Was that on purpose? Absolutely!...What do you mean what happened? Look at my dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress, that's what happened. Yeah, I think I just stepped on the fabric and...they waxed the stairs."

Not only is Zooey Deschanel gorgeous, but she has an awesome fashion style. I see photos of her on tv or on The Internets and I always think she's wearing something that I'd love to wear if I had the guts to do it. I love that she's musically talented but keeps that mostly on the back burner for her wildly popular show New Girl. She's adorkable!

Emma Stone is just presh. For real. And those cute little freckles! Also, I get the feeling she is terribly sarcastic, which I love. :) This li'l lady is a natural blonde who dyed her hair red for roles. Her thoughts on being blonde:

[on her hair for her role in "The Amazing Spider-Man"] I have blonde hair now since Gwen (Stacy) has blonde hair. My hair is naturally blonde, so it's kind of nice. I look in the mirror and say, "Oh my God, it's me again, it's been so long!"

"Blondes do have more fun. But sometimes I look in the mirror and still feel like I'm wearing a wig."

And then this, just because it's hilar:
"I'm a big fan of Lauren Bacall. Maybe because everyone was smoking more heavily then, but that raspy, throaty quality seems to be much more prevalent in those '40s movies. Mine was from colic when I was a baby."

Recent antics aside, I've always thought Reese was a sassy Southern lady with killer looks and great wardrobe. I absolutely love that she can play such opposite characters as Elle Woods and June Carter Cash. She's very talented!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my girl crushes. Do you have any?

  3. Yes, Jennifer Lawrence AND Zooey. Christina Hendricks too. Also, Emma Watson and Audrey Hepburn (I mean, seriously, don't most girls LOVE her?).

    You know what's really fun? Getting guys to admit to their Heterosexual Man Crushes.

  5. Favorite J.Law quote:

    Interviewer: How did you become such a great actress?

    J.Law: I used to lie a lot as a kid.

  6. I swear, I would have picked the exact same 5! I do especially love me some Emma and Jennifer. And bless Reese's heart. What was she thinking when she said all that? I LOOOOVE that ruffled denim blouse she is wearing, though.
