Mondays can be a drag, so we thought we’d brighten up the start of the week
with some eye candy.
What do you think? We would love to know who your hero is.
Celia’s Hero: Here’s Roger Daltrey; the man who haunted my teenage dreams. Finally got to see him for my 40th birthday, and he was wearing…beige. At least it wasn’t an anorak. Still amazing after all these years, even though he now spends less time strutting than running a fish farm, apparently. Am sure I could cope with the scales getting everywhere – all that smouldering, and you’d never be short of something for dinner.
Sue’s Hero : Although heroes have come and gone over time, for a good twenty years or so now, one has endured. I first set eyes on him in ‘The Untouchables’ and then later on in ‘Godfather III’. He has starred with Al Pacino, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Dustin Hoffman to name but a few. He played a true romantic hero alongside Meg Ryan in ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ and in real life he is a devoted father of four. My hero is the gorgeous Andy Garcia.
Vanessa: I used to get crushes on heroes from books, especially a bad boy turned good … Rupert Campbell-Black, the handsomest man in England was a great hero – but only after he fell in love with Taggie and stopped being so mean. But the greatest, for me, is the lovely Mr Darcy. For so long, he had to stride around solely in my imagination, being all scowly and yummy. Then, one happy day in 1996, the BBC brought him to life for me in the form of Colin Firth. And as an extra special treat, they even added a wet-shirt, striding out of a lake scene … sigh …
Liz’s hunky hero is the delicious Gerard Butler
Catherine needed just one word to describe Tom Hardy – ‘Drool’
Jan : The first time Rupert Penry – Jones rattled my radar was when I saw him in Spooks, playing Adam Carter. Phewee…
Lucie: Seeing as Liz got in before me with the absolutely gorgeous Gerard Butler, I’ve agreed to let him go *sigh* and drool over my other favorite hunky man….Bradley Cooper. Ah, those eyes….
Debbie : Sorry girls. He may not be Hollywood, but a bit like Sue, I’ve loved this man for twenty years of my life. For me, any man who looks like this, stands the test of time and can serenade is a hero …
…for me anyway
Laura: Top Gun, (Pilot’s uniform), A Few Good Men (white uniform), Mission Impossibles (black uniform), Risky Business (socks and pants) – such a versatile dresser and I’d be his wingman any day. Tom Cruise.
