"Do-over" Wednesday. AKA: Girl Crushes

Yesterday was "Do-over Wednesday." I went over to my friend's house and this time, we actually made it to the movie theatre (on time!) and saw Confessions of a Shopaholic before it leaves the cinema. It was cheese-tastic, and I loved it. Well, everything but the end, in which soaring music, wind in the heroine's hair, and every chick flick cliche in the book made their appearance to send it home. Just in case you forgot you were watching a fluff movie involving no real substance.

Anyway, I have a total girl crush on Isla Fisher. She's friggin' adorable. The red hair, the cute-as-a-button face, the quirky attitude. Love her!

Now, I'm a lover of men. Oh yeah, I love the menfolk. BUT, that doesn't mean I can't admire the beauty of a woman without wanting to, ya know, touch her & shit. There are a couple of actresses who fall into the girl crush category:

Hey, she's married to Borat, so she's gotta have a sense of humor, right? Also, who could watch her in Wedding Crashers and not laugh their ass off? No one I want to know, surely.

Zooey Deschanel
I think she's hilarious & pretty in a very understated kind of way. Failure to Launch is not a great movie, for instance, but Zooey is terrific in it. Also, Winter Passing - great flick, and shows a more serious (but still funny) side of Will Ferrell. She's also marrying one of the dudes from Death Cab for Cutie, a band I enjoy. Bonus cool points, that.

Anna Faris
LOVE HER. She's pretty and funny, and stars in a ridiculous stoner movie that makes me laugh every time: Smiley Face. Also, Just Friends? She is insanely funny in it.

Ok, I'll stop now before you all start to tag me as a gigantic lesbian. NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT. :) I just like pretty chicks who make me laugh - is that so wrong?

Way to make it to the movie, ya big lush! :)

Nothing wrong with a girl crush. I have a few myself. And my husband encourages them.

Anna Faris is a total doll!

Bev. GREAT timing. Oprah just did a whole show yesterday about the fluidity of women's sexuality and how many straight women have girl crushes or dalliances. ;)

Bev said...

Samsmama - LOL! I know! We skipped the booze this time, which totally helped.

Lisa - How funny! I missed that Oprah, but now I'm positive that I missed my calling and should be producing Oprah's show in Chicago. Damn!

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

i like Isla, too.

i would totally make out with Angelina and currently have a thing for Amy Fisher.

how's THAT for lesbian behavior?!

Bev said...

Nice, MOFM!!! That's what I'm talkin' about!

Amy Fisher?! Are we talking about the Long Island Lolita? If so, you're even more of a bad ass than I thought. Kudos!

At first, I thought you meant Amy Adams, and she was thisclose to making my crush list.

Harmony said...

Isla is a total I agree.

I think Charlize Theron is pretty freaking hawt!

Also? I liked Anna Faris in The House Bunny...a movie I swore I would only watch in secret..but I liked it, great one liners! I also learned that Rumor Willis has it going ON in that movie.

And on a side note...I was watching Nemo today, and suddenly realized why your avatar looks SO familiar!

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...


take pity on me, please.

Mala said...

I'm with you on Amy Adams. And kudos to her for going practically make-up-less in Sunshine Cleaners.
How about Rachel McAdams? She's so pwitty.

Bev said...

@MOFM - Oh MY GAWD! I'm laughing my ass off right now!!!

Seriously, I haven't laughed this hard in ages!!! (I need to get out more, I know)

I know what my next blog is gonna be about....

Still laughing....

Harmony - I also love The House Bunny, but I'm not even ashamed of it. I hold my Chick Flick Banner high! Wave it, sistah! Wave it!

Oh, and I am Darla, because I have killed every fish I've ever tried to keep. I love the fishies, I just can't seem to sustain life for them. Bummer.

Mala, YES! I definitely love Rachel McAdams! I was actually thinking about her on my ride home from work today, thinking that I should have included her. Eesh, I really have issues....

Anyway, I love Rachel for her work in Mean Girls. Damn, I love that movie. "Gretchen, stop trying to make 'fetch' happen."

Samsmama said...

Ok, I just NOW figured out your avatar. Duh.

Oh, man, MOFM. That was some truly funny shit! Amy Fisher is doing porn these days, but I think it's girl on girl. So there just might be a chance...

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

sigh. glad i can make you laugh. heh. i can't f-ing believe i did that! ergh!

btw, i do like anna faris, but she looks an awful lot (to me) like the chick who played Jan Brady in the The Brady Bunch Movie - Jennifer Elise Cox (i hate bitches with 3 names. my parents gave me TWO middle names, so i have the longest name in history on my birth certificate. I DON'T BROADCAST IT THOUGH.)

sorry that i'm using your comments to rant about stuff. i should go to bed... zzzzz

Bev said...

Rant away! The 3 name thing bugs me, too. I mean, really. It's esp. annoying on men, IMO - ala Thomas Hayden Church or whatever that dude's name is (from Sideways?).

Amy Fisher is indeed doing porn! Though, it's gonna be harder to get your mits on Angelina, I'd wager. ;)
