Did You Know? Celebrity Men Reveal Their Man Crushes
Man crushes aren’t just for Mondays. These celebrity men may not share their #MCM picks on their Instagram pages, but they are okay with admitting that they’re nursing some lighthearted affection for their fellow stars. And we understand. We’ve been watching Michael B. Jordan and Brad Pitt do their thing on the small and big screen for years too, and it’s hard not to develop a crush on such A-list hunks.
The following stars revealed the famous fellas they admire a great deal and why. And while some might give these guys a side-eye, when you’re comfortable in your sexuality, it shouldn’t be a struggle for one man or woman to admire openly and compliment another.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
The Rock had no problem confessing to E! who his man crush was. And it was his former G.I. Joe: Retaliation co-star Channing Tatum.
“He is, according to some, and one People magazine, the Sexiest Man Alive. And the truth is, and I can say this because I’m very comfortable in my own manhood and sexuality, he is a very sexy guy. He’s a good-looking guy.”
Andrew Garfield has such a man crush on Michael B. Jordan that he wants him to star with him in Spider-Man — as his male love interest. He joked to Entertainment Weekly, “I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire. He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better — we’d have interracial bisexuality!”
When MTV asked Ryan Reynolds if he was a Twilight fan, he let his huge crush on Robert Pattinson slip saying, “Oh my God are you kidding me? Robert Pattinson? In a word? Dreamy.”
Who does international heartthrob George Clooney have a crush on? Clive Owen. Julia Roberts spilled the tea on Clooney’s celebrity crush saying, “George Clooney is obsessed with Clive. Every good-guy actor talks about Clive as one of their very favorites. Because he’s English, because his successes have stood on the shoulders of his talents alone, because he hasn’t just been carried away by popular culture.”
And Clive feels the same way!
Channing Tatum may be The Rock’s celebrity crush, but Channing Tatum’s celebrity crush is George Clooney. He recently called him “the most interesting man on the planet. He can do it all. I guess what I’m saying is I’d have sex with him.”
Benedict Cumberbatch has never met Matt Damon, but that hasn’t stopped him from developing a professional man crush on the star.
“Well, he’s just so grounded. He’s so intelligent. He makes these smart choices, as an actor, as a producer, as a writer. He’s so composed. You never hear a bad word said about him. Everybody loves him. And he just sounds like he’s got his priorities right as a human being, and as an actor, he’s phenomenal.”
When Advocate asked Patrick Dempsey who his man crush was, he replied, “Johnny Depp, certainly, without question. There’s just something about his individuality, his humility, and his sense of style. He’s also immensely talented and intelligent, and that’s all very sexy.”
Michael Fassbender has a huge man crush on Brad Pitt, but he’ll have to get in line.
Ben Affleck has such a big man crush on Justin Timberlake that he kind of hates him, if that makes sense.
“He’s so bad for your self-esteem. There’s nothing the guy can’t do! He can dance like Michael Jackson, he sings, he writes music…400 million boy bands, and he’s the one guy that became a gigantic star.”
The Fault in Our Stars star has quite the man crush on Thomas Hardy’s acting chops.
“I would go gay for Tom [Hardy]! He lets himself become the character and reveals so much about himself in the process. He is very special.”
