An interactive post

Early in our relationship, we (meaning "I") established a "get out of jail" clause. It means that if the person of your dreams approaches, your spouse has to let you pash them, with no recriminations.

To be honest I can't even remember who mine was (we have been together FOREVER). I do remember that Glen's was Uma Thurman, mine was probably Brad Pitt or Robbie Williams - actually, at one stage it was Russell Crowe (have you seen the Sum of Us? - hot!).

I need to have a good think about who it is now. Peter Saarsgard was a potential, but since he has had a baby it seems wrong. Maybe Jake Gyllenhaal would be mine.

So, the big question, who is your 'get out of jail free' person?

You're probly thinking I'll say Rebecca Singh.

But in all honesty, it's always been Nastassia Kinski (although, in all shallowness also, I'd need to confirm she's aged well, since I haven't seen her on screen for a while).

oh, and/or Stephanie Seymour.

Martha said...

Cripes, you enjoyed the 1980s eh?

Joanna said...

Stephanie Seymour is married, llew! And dead! Didn't you see the huge big ceremonies? Axel sure did.

Mine would be Sarah Ramirez. Hotttttttt!

A few years ago I would have said drew barrymore without even blinking. And for a little while I would have followed that up with 'or Marc Ellis' hahahah. These days I'm not sure I have one at all.

Miramar Michael said...

Oh definitely Anika (Moa) - Liz is perfectly aware that if Anika makes the slightest hint of a play then I'm history.

Helen said...

Marc Ellis, Rhiannon??? Euw!

For me it has to be Gary Oldman (so mean and grumpy) or Isabella Rossillini (those lips! those hips!)

Hadyn said...

what do you mean one? Me and my lady have top 5 lists. I got to interview my #1 last year at Armageddon (Jewel Staite from Firefly/Serenity) but her husband was hanging around so no action.

Gwen Stefani is also on my list.

Heather said...

OMG Peter Saarsgard is SO my get-out-of-jail! Used to be David Wenham, but then I saw him do an interview and he came across as a flaky, pompous..err..thespian.

harvestbird said...

Jeremy Wells, especially if dressed in his Kenneth Cumberland-walk shorts a la the Unauthorised History.

Also, hello Martha; I enjoy your blog.

Jessie said...

Peter Sarsgaard is so incredibly hot. I'm sorry but I won't share him.

Che Tibby said...

i had a spot on the couch for uma thurman for awhile there too.

Rosiemunda said...

I don't know who this peter saarsgard fellow is.. I will google..

well I am singel. Is the best because you never have to make a list and narrow it down, all my options are open! In fact sometimes when I am verging on the edge of a relationship I have these fantasies of my celebrity crushes coming to me to profess their love and I get into a dilema wondering if i should really get into the relationship in case this happens, and who would I chose?

Does this make me shallow/derranged/male?

ps list roughly like this: damon albarn, johnny depp, all of the strokes but fabrizio in particular, jason shwartzman, river phoenix (would definatly be allowed if he rose from the dead to be with me)... and the list goes on

Morgan said...

Martin Clunes, hands down!

Make Tea Not War said...

For years I would have said Johnny Depp- but nowadays Bill Bailey is mine- and to increase the get out of jail freeness of the clause he even looks a bit like my husband in an all men with beards and long hair look a bit alike way

Cathi said...

It could have been Johnny Depp, but since he took to cavorting about with a hanky on his head yelling "Ahoy me hearties" I've gone off him rather.

James Gandolfini but only in Tony Soprano mode

Jeremy Brett but only if he has lifts in his shoes (they have to be taller than me)

Rupert Everett now that he's admitted he's bi. When he said he was gay I was so disappointed, but now he's fair game for us ladies again.

The guy who played Albert Speer in Downfall - is it Heino Ferch? Him, anyway.

That'll do for starters.

Himself never ever admits who's on his list, it makes teasing him very difficult

guinness girl said...

Hmm. For the longest time, mine was always John Cusack. Then, Colin Firth. Now, I'm not so sure. I keep drawing a blank!

llew said...

Stephanie Seymour is dead?!!

Hadyn said...

My girl had Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam as her #1 for years now I think it's Johnny Depp.

One of friends once asked us "is it wrong to think Christian Bale is hot?"

"No" we answered

"What about when he was in American Psycho?"

llew said...

What about when he was in the Machinist?

esther said...

robert downey jnr. tragic but true. is very yummy and very naughty and i would fix him and he would choose me over the herion and naughtiness and we would have 6 beautiful raven haired children with a predisposition to drug addiction and alcoholism. perfect!

Alice said...

Graham Coxon who used to be in Blur. Yes.

Julian said...

Yeah we had that scheme running too, it's a good plan! I remember it was discussed with friends once and everyone in the room went for Drew Barrymore.

melissa said...

I would have to choose Jake Gyllenhaal. Or Maggie Gyllenhaal. Is that wrong?

Heather said...

I only "Discovered" (y'know, some people are an acquired taste) Christian Bale in The Prestige. Early adopter I am not.

BUT ANYWAY, really I'm just posting to change my choice (purely for Jessie's benefit) to Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Rosiemunda said...

I had christian bale as my number 1 at a small age when he was in 'Empire of the Sun' he was hot! It is ok because I was small too.

I agree with Colin Firth, how could I forget him? oh ooh I have just remembered heaps more: Clive Owen ( i challenge ANYONE to disagree with that one) that guy from the new Pride and Prejudice... um can't remember his name and Adam Brody aka seth cohen and peter gallager aka sandy cohen

aka Special K said...

I saw a movie the other night when I couldn't sleep called "Bubble Boy" starring a quite young Jake Gyllenhall - he was so goofy but beautiful. Being just in a new relationship we haven't established get out of jail free people yet, but Jake would be up there. And perhaps Shayne Carter. And I think Sacha Baron Cohen's pretty sexy too. But not in stretchy green togs.
