Jeanette kicked off our Man-spiration picspam last month with a fave of mine: a Chris
Let me preface the image bomb I’m about to drop on you with the fact that normally, I’m not into pretty blonde boys with blue eyes. That’s not my “type.” I like dark hair on a rugged or dangerous looking man with a prominent nose, and a European accent of some kind – preferably English or Irish. Think anyone from Richard Armitage to Tom Hardy to Christian Bale to Bear Grylls to Liam Neeson…you get the picture.
However, there is one particular species of blonde men for which I’ve developed an acute appreciation. I call them the Chris Trifecta.
As JG pointed out, there’s the Chris Evans:
There’s also the Chris Hemsworth:
(hip dents, what?!)
AND my personal favorite, the Chris Pine (who also happens to be today’s birthday boy):
I like him bearded.
With 20 extra pounds of Kirk and Jack Ryan weight.
Without 20 extra pounds of Kirk and Jack Ryan weight (and dressed like a desert hooker).
Without glasses (Srsly, who has eyes like that? Chris Pine. That’s who.)
But what I appreciate most about this Chris are his hands. His non-stop, ever moving, demonstrative hands. Oh, and the fact that within this Hollywood golden boy type dwells an intelligent, adorable Goof Ball. It makes for good character inspiration. In fact, bits of what make Chris Pine fangirl-worthy have already inspired bits of a character or two of mine and, I’m sure, will inspire a few more. I mean…Look at the mannerisms, the expression, the characterization!
