Just what is it about bad boys that attract women so much? Maybe its their fierceness which translates to their manliness. Or their rebelliousness which makes your mind wander how that translates in the boudoir. Dang, I can't believe I just wrote boudoir. You get what I'm saying, right? Or maybe they promise a different life as opposed to your old regular joe shmoe.
No, just admit it. You are just thinking about what it translates in the ahem, boudoir.
Take Edward Norton, for example. I think he is a good actor. He is a decent looking man, not really my type but not unattractive by any means. His voice is a bit nasally but he was cool in Fight Club, 25th Hour, The Italian Job. He was aiight. I hear he is great in The Illusionist. I also give him props because he went out with Salma Hayek for a while. Anyone who can handle beautiful and gorgeous Salma Hayek deserves some propers. And I am a total straight woman saying that.
Then I borrowed American History X from my sister-in-law. Oh.my. Um, Ed...where have you been all my life? Nevermind that he was portraying a brain-washed nazi psycho. He was hot. I couldn't focus on his psychotic nazi-ness I was so enthralled with this new Edward. Michael was disgusted with me. He had to be a filthy, tattooed lunatic thug that liked to crack people's skulls in order for you to think he was sexy? He snarled at me. Of course I didn't find all the scary things his character does in the movie sexy. But watching him serve it up roughneck style kinda sorta crumbled my cookie. Thus, I no longer see Mr. Norton in the same light.
Before you think me a filthy degenerate perv, I don't seem to be the only person who thinks that way.
When I told my sister-in-law what I thought after seeing the movie, she nodded her head in full agreement. "Mmmmm-hmmmmm, girl. I know exactly what you are saying." And I've heard this again and again from women, whenever this movie--or this actor, I should say--is brought up. Okay, so I'm not redeeming myself, I'm just sayin'...there are other freaks out there who think like me. And I married my roughneck, so I'm legit.
