Sometimes I wonder if the reason why I'm still single is because I have this romanticised idea in my head of who Mr Right is based on the guys I like in TV programmes and films. No matter how much I tell myself "dude, get over yourself, they're fictional characters, for fucks sake", I just can't manage it.
Since Robert Downey Jnr is one of my favourite men, it was inevitable that I would love the character he played in "Ally McBeal". In fact his only vices were 1) falling for ALLY and then 2) leaving in a really cowardly, crappy "we have to write him out quickly in case he ends up back in jail" way. Apart from that I just absolutely ADORED him. If only every girl could have a real life Larry Paul. That being said, we might all get our boyfriends mixed up in that case. THAT could be embarrassing . . .
I know he can never be mine in real life (because obviously Larry COULD be? Hmmmm) and I don't know exactly when I started to fall for him, but it was probably the point where he started to fall in love with Robyn. So darned adorable. And he's so funny. And SOOOO smartly attired at ALL times (remember the suit pyjamas? Friggin' hilarious!) Oh how I wish he was mine. Even if I know it would never last because he would TOTALLY cheat on me, the womaniser. I'd still love him all the same though.
Dr Jack Shephard
(No clip for this one sadly as all I could find on youtube were fanmade videos with soppy songs and they were annoying me. A lot)
The best thing about "Lost", and the only constant in a sea of confusion. Time and locations could change, Flashbacks could occur, twists could spring surprise after surprise on you, but Jack could always be trusted to save your life and flash his hot bod around. Sawyer was hot too, sure, but a bit too cocky . . . Jack Shephard = perfection.
The pie-maker from "Pushing Daisies" just gets my sullied little heart all a-flutter. I mean, he can COOK. He has the most adorable Jake-Gyllenhall-like eyes. AND, best of all, he hasn't brought me back to life, so . . . he could do ALL KINDS OF DIRTY THINGS TO ME and not kill me again by touching me. Yay!!!
Robin Hood (the fox)
Now this really couldn't happen in real life I guess. Unless I want to be known as "That girl who goes out with animals." Which is not a label I really want. Oh well . . .
Which fictional tv/film character would YOU like to be your other half?
