In the age of social media, many women (and men as well) have been subjected to unwanted (and hey, sometimes wanted) advances from strangers who now have the ability to “slide in your DMs.” They can make you their Man or Woman Crush of the week, comment on all of your pictures and leave smiley faces with hearts for eyes just in case their messages aren’t getting the point across. But it’s not just everyday folks who do the absolute most in an attempt to be given a shot (or in an attempt to get in one’s undergarments). Many a celebrity man has professed strong, like pungent, affections for certain celebrity women.
Take Shemar Moore for example. The actor had been planting seeds for months to get someone to introduce him to singer/actress Rita Ora. Well, he finally had the chance to meet her this month, and he couldn’t get over how stunning the beauty is. “She’s quite exquisite,” he said while at Access Hollywood.
“I end up going to dinner at this nice little sushi spot in Los Angeles and I walk in… I felt like I was in high school,” he said. “I sat right across from her, that accent came out and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is real!’ And then we just had this, like, hour-and-a-half, just chill, eating-sushi conversation.”
Despite all of that “running my mouth” as he said, Moore didn’t get her number. He did, however, shower her with all sorts of compliments — and kisses.
“I’m looking at her and she’s stunning,” Moore said. “I go, ‘You’re beautiful. God did it right, took his time…’ She laughed and we had a good time and that was it. No phone numbers, no nothing. I just shook her hand, kissed her on the cheek and said, ‘It was very nice to meet you.'”
