Okay, not my real boyfriend. It’s my Blair-gives-me-permission-just-like-Rachel-gave-Ross-permission-in-that-episode-of-Friends-with-Isabella-Rossellini-pretend-boyfriend.
Today is Cole Hauser’s 40th Birthday.
This guy who I’ve fantasized over since I was 15.
And I haven’t been 15 in a very, very long time (*ahem* although I am still claiming I’m 23 so, y’know, just for shits and giggles let’s all keep that between us, shall we?).
And the first thing I saw him in (when I was 15) was School Ties when he looked like this:
I’ve supported his career since day 1 – which included (Tanya R., I’m soooo sorry to admit this/disappoint you) boycotting FRIENDS (oh, the horror!) because it was up against Cole’s show High Incident and I really wanted the ratings to pull through. I did my best, Cole. I.Did.My.Best.
I’ve watched his “Dinner for Five” appearance a dozen times (which, frankly, was a great little show and you should YouTube the episodes)….the Rory Cochrane story at the end of the episode is hilarious! – check it out: .
And I was super elated to find out he was in Halifax – a mere hour away from me – this past fall filming The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. How I did not know this information BEFOREHAND pissed me off….Blair and Stephanie (who has been by my side since School Ties) did their best to console me. Clearly, I was devastated but here’s hoping he comes back to Nova Scotia to
make it up to me film again.
Now that I’ve professed my undying and long-lasting love for this guy (one of the longest relationships I’ve ever had), here’s to wishing him a happy birthday.
#23 – My Celebrity Crush:
Ahhh….celebrity crushes. We all have them. They’re wonderful little slips on reality and let us drift off to the land of glamour.
I have had a massive celebrity crush on Cole Hauser since I was 15 when I saw him in School Ties. He’s one of those actors who doesn’t get nearly enough recognition or appreciation. He’s so good in everything he does. And he is the reason I originally boycotted Friends back in the day (his show High Incident was on opposite of Friends and couldn’t compete with the ratings of Must See TV and after two superb seasons it was cancelled). He’s been in tons of movies and several tv shows, yet, not nearly enough people know who he is. So I’m telling you: COLE HAUSER IS THE SHIT!!!!
Scott Caan – I’ve already talked about his Bromance on Hawaii Five-0 and his Golden Globe nomination. He’s so adorable. I enjoy Monday nights with him.
Harrison Ford – Hello!! He is THE MAN. I grew up watching everything Harrison Ford – from Star Wars to Indiana Jones to Hollywood Homicide (*yawn*). He is the King of Hollywood. I love him. He will forever be referred to as “my future husband” (as is how I referred to him in high school and beyond).
Jim Cuddy – The man with the rich voice. I can remember, vividly, the first time I heard Blue Rodeo’s Try. I was 11. It was a song that stopped me in my tracks. I had no idea people could sing like that. And Pull Me Through reignited that flame. I was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago and he was so funny and gracious. I even bought the man a glass of wine. Definitely a highlight of my pathetic little life. 🙂
