Rules of Attraction

In one of my opening posts, with a pic of Brad Pitt as my example, I pondered the cult of celebrity, and being 'cool'. Today I'm throwing Angelina into the mix, more specifically in her role as Lara Croft - Tomb Raider, because she is quite consistently one of the characters that many gay men find incredibly sexy - in a way they frequently don't with most women. Now I know not everyone will agree with this, but sitting here in my no. 6 on the Kinsey Scale, I know there is truth in it. It might be her masculinity (interestingly coupled with quite some femininity), the fact that she's playing a typically male role (and some will find triggers to memories of Raiders of the Lost Ark...) or maybe she's just universally sexy. Perhaps its just the accent she does for the role, I do love accents... Maybe the straight or not-so-gay men and women reading this might like to shed some light on the matter. I also personally find Cameron Diaz quite sexy in a similar way - but I'm not quite sure how I can explain it - I'm certainly not falling off the gay wagon, but if either of them were in the next wagon passing by - I know I'd be tempted...

Funny how you bought this subject up...

Yesterday, we were talking in the studio about Angelina... and William (a pink blooded Homosexual male) declared that "you'd have to be gay to want to shag her".

I thrust my hand in the air and went "no way Billy.. She's f'ing hot...I'd have sex with her!

The room went quiet for a good 15 seconds and just looked at me. William stared unforgivngly.

I put my head down and went back to my work...the rumble of work sounds rose again, ever so slowly....

I can do nothing but agree with you on this one. I find Angelina (as Lara Croft) nothing short of dead sexy. Not sure why, maybe it is as you say, her masculinity or the accent. But either way Lara Croft is one sexy character.......
