Who’s your George Clooney? Hot Conversation

I’ve polled my girlfriends, and they all seem to have a similar fantasy to the one I describe in my book, Marrying George Clooney.

I’m married to an extraordinary guy, but I can still picture myself, in ten years, in Paris with George Clooney. But of course, even in this fantasy, my husband Ken is on a plane coming to visit – because it could never last with George. After all, I’m not 20 and I’m not 5’11 and I don’t speak Italian!

Some people are actually sending George Clooney copies of my book, which is not really about stalking him and more about relationships in general. I know George has a great sense of humor and I think the chapter about him would make him laugh. Maybe it would even give him renewed respect for women over 50!

    I guess if I had to dream….I would say Tom Sellleck, Sean Connery, Sam Elliott, how about Keneau Reeves ( he’s a hot younger guy) It’s so tough, allot of nice looking men out there!! How about some of the old time movie stars??? Clark Gable, James Garner those guys were hot in there day too!!! Been fun dreaming..but I will keep my old hubby, because I know he loves this old girl, even first thing in the a.m with bed head hair etc…ha ha!!

    I know he is just an ordinary guy but he is definately worth the price of admission to any movie he is in.

    My thinking is that George would be a lucky man to spend time with the likes of a great 50 something like me!

    For sure George is top shelf.  It seems to me we are exceptionally fortunate in the drop dead handsome man department.  For me I would have to choose Tom Selleck.  If he”s on a horse thats pushes him up a couple points.  You can tell alot about a man by the way he treats animals.  He is a horseman, with a gentle touch, good sense of humor, kind eyes. I could go on and on and on!

      Yes, Tom is someone I admire, for his looks, his personality, and his beliefs.  It seems it usually goes farther than looks for me.

    I wanna play!

    First I have to tell you my Richard Gere story. About 20 years ago, a bunch of us were sitting in Peter Max’s living room making plans for an international simulcast concert when Richard Gere walked in and sat beside me on the couch. This was back when his sideburns were beginning to go gray. Just stunning! Shy and unassuming–really nice man. Fast forward to 2009…what has gone wrong with him? He’s turned into a jerk! Whenever I see Gere on a talk show or being interviewed, he always manages to make a fool out of himself. Must be going through some sort of belated midlife [career] crisis.

    Now, back to the subject at hand. I’ll take Jeffrey Wright, Gabriel Byrne, and Dwayne Johnson (f/k/a “The Rock”). (Understudy: Johnny Depp)

    Honorable mentions: Ed Harris (the thinking woman’s sex symbol); Liam Neeson (rumor has it….); Idris Elba (Brown Sugar); that cute little Ashton Kushner; Barack Obama (perfection); and James Brolin.

    NOW 15 YEARS LATER WE’RE STILL ENJOYING OUR HONEYMOON LIKE ROMANCE AS IF WE WERE THE FIRST DAY WE MEET.

    I have been lax in my emails – very busy – son’s wedding, visiting daughter in Lville, KY. This post has mentioned many of my favorite “stars”. Mine have changed over the years. Most of them always had accents – Mel Gibson, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, etc. Others, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, William Smith (the bad boy from 35 years ago), but Michael Caine and Bruce Willis have never left my heart! I don’t know what it is about Caine unless it is the accent, but I just LOVE him. And Bruce is just a man’s man. In 16 Blocks, even with the gut and all, he is such a great actor!

    like others, my husband is my George Clooney.  Actually I have been telling my kids for years that my husband is the Brad Pitt of our generation, they just groan and roll their eyes.  I agree with many of the picks I have read.  Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Clint Eastwood, Richard Gere, all yummy. One that hasn’t been mentioned that I have always had a soft spot for is Toby Kieth.

    Reading your book now. I could comment on how I relate to something in each chapter so far. My friends don’t share this with me and I know they have to be going through some of the same stuff- in denial!!??  . I thought I was going crazy or actually that what was happening to me was the result of a “minor” stroke I had this year. I still don’t know which is menopause & which is the “stroke”. But that is a story in itself.

        There is one thing that we don’t seem to share. I occasionally have an overwhleming cry out loud, woe is me, saddness. My neurologist told me this could happen- but I think it is more about mid-life.  I lost my job as an Eecutive Director of a non-profit in April (still unemployed) my son played his last hockey game (travel player-consummed our lives) and he graduated in June-(no more PTA or school events). In the past I just jumped out there and made it all work- I seem to have lost some self esteem or something. – Plus have you ever been in an interview with a 30 something and then of all things a hot flash!!??  IT was hard enought to look decent(younger) after a sleepless night (mine starts at 3:00 or 4:00am also.)

    Well, I pretty much doubt any girl will do for George Clooney – as far as marriage goes.  He made a bet a few years ago with Nicole Kidman and Michelle Pfeiffer ($10,000 from each) that he would not be married by a  certain age and he won!  I still really like him, although his humor is a bit too contrived.   I’m going on 59 and my one and only for at least 4 years straight has been Johnny Depp!  Marvelous actor, bad boy personality, sexy as all get out and a real sweetheart to the fans (I understand).   Hugh Jackman is a running  second right now.

Adrian Garnier “Vince” of HBO’s “Entourage”!  Holy cow, he is sooo gorgeous, especially with that 5 o’clock shadow and those luscious lips!  I would wear a scarlet letter for him in a NY minute!  Tee hee!

    Amy,

    Thank you for your book.  I saved it until I had time to enjoy it. I started it last night and finished it this morning while cuddled up under a snuggly blanket avoiding the threatened ice storm.  It is a great book. Thank you for sharing it with me. 

    Even though we come from varied backgrounds (me from the religious Baptist south), I feel we would be friends if we ever met.  I too chose not to take the traditional path set for “women of my station” and to make my own way in the world. I too had a mother with Alzheimers. Our journey was 18 years. We had on a mixed CD when she died and (true story), the song playing when she passed was Bob Dylan’s “Digniity.” It became the theme for the funeral. And even the management company that ran the cemetery when she wanted to be buried next to my father was called, “Dignity.”  Loved it.

    Thank you again for this great book. Once I get my thoughts together, I’ll write a review on Amazon.

    I wold include Mikhail Baryshnikov- so sweet, talented and extremely sexy, and of course, LIam Neeson, Hugh Grant, and Sam Shepard.  After watching “Up in the Air” on Christmas Day, I have to say (and others have told me!) that George Clooney is in fact, quite detached, afraid of committing to relationships, and not one you want to be with for the rest of your life.  One night, maybe, but that’s it.

    My Clooney man is Mr. John Cusack.. Oh, I would certainly share a space with Johnny Depp, Bruce Springsteen, Cary Grant and many others that have been mentioned here in this post.. but, hands down, John Cusack… He is talented, sweet, funny and humble… And with those sisters you just KNOW he has some insight into women… So even though I am divorced and “totally uninvolved” for almost 9 years… I am not blind, nor am I unimaginative.. I just have not met the right guy yet.. I tried e-Harmony but I need to learn how to date and that site seemed to have guys ready to marry.. I am not there yet!… I know I better step on the gas pedal a bit since I am almost 52… LOL!  Anyway, I look forward to reading your book, Amy… Thanks for the provocative question… Probably my very first Fantasy Man was Barnabas Collins on Dark Shadows..Jonathan Freid (sp?) is his real name… Oh boy..a vampire and I was only 10!!! Yikes!
