Men You Shouldn't Fancy But Do: Jack Black

There's something about Jack Black that is very attractive and the more I learn about him the more attractive he becomes. I don't care if he's referred to as 'rotund'. I care less that he is on the short side of tall (5' 7" by all accounts). I don't even mind his penchant for gurning. The thing is, I've always liked his personality ever since I saw him in School of Rock and doing his over-the-top persona in the Tenacious D videos. And then in the film The Holiday with Kate Winslet he was just adorable! He was the sort of boyfriend you dream of - attentive, loving, fun. Ok, OK, I know it was a film role but I can dream can't I?

Then, just recently, I saw him on a TV show talking about his children and his wife, and he seemed so grounded and family orientated. I love that in a man. And he's funny too. Oh, yes a funny man could laugh me into bed quite easily. Although I don't want to be laughing at him in bed you understand. But Jack Black's sense of off-the-wall humour appeals to me, and who wouldn't like a man who could make you laugh everyday?

But then the coup de grace was when I saw a photo of him in a newspaper last week. He is currently in the UK filming Gulliver's Travels and he was spotted out and about in London pushing one of his children around in a pushchair. OK, that's cute enough but he was photographed getting onto a bus. A bus! Not getting into a limo, or hailing a taxi. No, Jack was struggling with his boy's pushchair onto a regular London bus. You just gotta love that haven't you? No grandeur for him, just an down-to-earth day out for him and his boy.
Jack, just in case you're reading this, do you have any single, older brothers?

Know where you are coming from here.

I also have a secret thing for Robbie Rotten of Lazy Town fame. I do think I might need to get out more.

Brit In Bosnia - I didn't know who Robbie Rotten was so checked him on youtube - ha! My 9 year old daughter has a message for you: "You have a problem - do you have a boyfriend?" Sorry, I think she means well....

Emma, of course!! I'm going to change this post to include it - he's great in The Holiday. Perfect boyfriend material.

Love Jack Black so totally understand your crush. In a similar way, does anyone find Gary Lineker attractive? Nope. Thought not!

lunarossa said...

Like Jack Black too, mainly because it's funny. My kids love him in School of Rock. He's got a great rock-singer voice! Ciao. A.

oh I love him too. and in a fancy sort of way. I think it is because he is unashamed of himself. I don't like an awkward feller.

I have a thing for both sid and andy off cbeebies. its my inappropriate mummy crush.

How refreshing and true, NSM! The ability to be real and comfortable with one's self is SO attractive. That kind of person allows us to be ourselves, too. I love people who are confident enough to be funny. Well said.

Tenacious T, Tribute : was that Jack Black? I think so and yes I agre he wouldn't have to try to hard to laugh me into bed either!

Pippa said...

Jack Black and Robbie Rotten are on my list of possible second husbands as is Greg House (aka Hugh Laurie), Denny Duquette or John Winchester (I'm not fussed as they are both Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and now you have me thinking of killing off Daddy...

Iota said...

Ha! Funnily enough I watched School of Rock just yesterday.

Yes, he's lovely.

But Robbie Rotten? Ooh, no, not my type at all.

Isn't it funny how the more you like a guys personality the more physically attractive he becomes? Anyone who makes me laugh or is kind and caring automatically goes up on the attractiveness scale and anyone who is physically handsome but is a total dickwad all of a sudden becomes extremely ugly to me
