film study: celebrity crushes and why they’re [completely] normal.. to a point.

We’ve all had them, whether we’re talking Chris Evans as Captain America or even someone from our childhood – we’ve all ‘crushed’ on somebody at some point. Think for about it for a minute: have you ever watched a movie, or a TV show and thought to yourself: “damn.. he/she is something else!? Chances are, that you have – and if you have, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s completely normal to be attracted to a celebrity, even if you won’t admit it to yourself.

Sometimes though, it becomes a problem.. a problem being sometimes it becomes unnaturally unhealthy: which – obviously – isn’t normal. I’ve talked to a few friends and they all admit to having at least one “celebrity crush” while other friends, won’t admit it: saying things like “it’s immature” to crush on a celebrity or “crushes are for kids” But, I like to believe that we’re all allowed to live in a fantasy world of our own sometimes – right?

not the fantasy world I meant. [created by Dan Meth]

The only real answer I can give is “so long as you recognize it’s ‘just a crush’ and nothing more beyond that”. the best way to look at it is to remember that the celebrity probably does not know you exist [heartbreaking, but true] there’s even sites explaining why they can be either healthy or unhealthy [like this site], showing both sides of the spectrum.

Either way, I’m of the opinion that celebrity crushes are absolutely normal [as long as it doesn’t interfere with your “normal life” you live now]  and if it isn’t hurting yourself [or others around you] physically or mentally, you should be fine.

As for me – I have a few celebrity crushes I can think of right off the top of my head.. and I’m going to share them below – these three fall into my three celebrity crushes at this moment in time; obviously though, [I’m pretty well obligated to say] Stephanie is my one and only – and these are only ‘crushes’ that are clearly harmless in nature. Now, onto my current three favorite celebrity ladies!

Ellen Page is one of many reasons I’m glad to be a Canadian. [this was confirmed in the movie “Super” from 2010. you should definitely the film out ASAP if you haven’t already!]

this one is a bit of a cop out, since I’ve ‘crushed’ on her since I was 10 years old, but Emma Watson is a no brainer.. especially thanks to her accent.

switching over to motivation from horror films, I absolute adore Danielle Harris. This one was confirmed by her role in Hatchet Part II!

So next time someone asks you who your celebrity crush[es] are, please don’t be ashamed – it’s completely normal.. as long as you’re not going to the point of ruining your own life for him/her – it’s just not worth it: especially since it won’t help your cause.
