[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie Crushes
Sharing 18 of my top female movie crushes in my last post, I saved the real goodies for this one. Because let's face it - attractive actors are still one of the important reasons I watch movies. And one of the things I talk most about when I talk about movies with people that aren't very interested in movies. 
Nevertheless, I think that actors are getting too much attention and too much room in movies on a general plan, or at least male characters. Do you remember the last time you watched a movie which had a) one male character only, b) more than one male character, but they don't talk to each other or c) more than one male character, but they only talk about women? I'm referring to the Bechdel test, also known as the "sexist" test for movies - and you know, there are thousands of "acclaimed", successful and "important" movies out there that don't even get a yes for question one, "Is there more than one woman in the movie?". Most movies out there are sexist, and I really want that to change. So that we can both enjoy the best-looking men on screen, and the most talented women talking to each other on screen, about something else than a man.
Until then, let's enjoy 18 of my male movie crushes in no particular order...
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesA Streetcar Named Desire, Marlon BrandoFirst of all, his last name is my last name which makes us... a married couple? Anyway, Stanley Kowalski is more than just a cliché... he's a legend. Of attractiveness.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie Crushes127 Hours, James FrancoI felt a little uncomfortable watching this because despite the horrible and painful story, I couldn't think about anything than how surprisingly sexy James Franco looked, even when he was going to die any second.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesHarry Potter, Rupert GrintIt's not that he's a traditional heartthrob, but there's something about Ron Weasley that just makes you fall for him.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesIn the Mood for Love, Tony LeungNot to be racist or anything, but I don't usually find Asian guys to be overly attractive. But when they are, they're just really hot. Like Tony Leung. I even liked him with long hair in "Red..." Red something. Some Chinese blockbuster.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesDrive, Ryan GoslingHe doesn't have a name, he doesn't speak much, he's quiet yet lethal. Which woman wouldn't fall for The Driver?
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesRebel Without a Cause, James DeanWhen women and girls from several different generation have been obsessed with one guy, even one character, there's mostly something about it. And we don't care whether he was gay or not.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesFish Tank, Michael FassbenderMy first Fassy experience... I'll never forget it. Although I had a love-hate relationship with his character.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesGrease, John TravoltaThere's the weird chin, the big mouth, the hair and the tight trousers... but despite all these things, there's something in Danny's gaze that just makes you want to sing "You're the one that I want... woohoohooo, honey...".
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesRang De Basanti, SiddharthAll the talk about girls falling in love with Siddharth after RDB... I can't relate to it. I watched several of his Telugu hits and didn't find him very attractive in them. It's really just Karan who makes my heart beat faster.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesDirty Dancing, Patrick SwayzeGuys must be really mad at Swayze for having played Johnny... because somewhere deep down, don't we all believe that some day, some guy will come along, and he is going to dance with us the way Johnny danced with Baby?
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesTitanic, Leonardo DiCaprioDiCaprio never was able to live up to the standards he set in Romeo+Juliet and Titanic, look-wise. Good thing there's DVDs.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesCosmopolis, Robert PattinsonBeneath all the Twilight-glitz, there's a real good-looking guy - who would've thought. Oh, and the suit... the suit!
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesAtonement, James McAvoyThere's nothing like looking at James McAvoy in a movie... the photos don't even compare.
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesHarry Potter, Tom FeltonWhen I started watching and reading Harry Potter, I never expected to fall in love in that way with any of the characters - and now there are two of them in my list!
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesPearl Harbor, Josh HartnettThis is one of my first movie crushes I remember... and I think it still has some influence on what I expected guys to look like. I know, it's terrible. 
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesThe Dreamers, Louis GarellDoesn't he just radiate... well, you know... he just radiates. 
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie CrushesShah Rukh Khan, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie GhamHorrible movie. But it was my first Bollywood movie. And thanks to Shah Rukh, I watched more of them. 
[17] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Male Movie Crushes
The Pillars of the Earth, Eddie RedmayneI fell for the character Jack when I read the book, and when I watched the mini series it was just like a dream come true.

Honorable mentions:Patrick (Ezra Miller) - The Perks of Being a WallflowerGeorge Jung (Johnny Depp) - BlowWladyslaw Szpilman(Adrien Brody) - The PianistWhat movie characters have you had a crush on?
