Embarrassing Celebrity Crushes

What Celebrity Crush Are You Embarrassed By?

I have a full-blown crush on Vincent Kartheiser, the actor who plays smug-faced Pete Campbell on Mad Men. Now while I adore his character, most people loathe him. But the actor is actually pretty cute. Still, I'm embarrassed by it because everyone I've told disapproves. But seriously, if it were Jon Hamm vs. Vincent Kartheiser, I'd choose the latter. And just to clarify, Vincent does own a toilet, just not a car.

There are worse celebrity crushes, anyway. Whether they're too young, too old, or just kind of creepy, women can't help it. We touched upon this idea with our Hugly Faceoff (guys who manage to be both hot and ugly), and now Guys We Shouldn't Be Attracted To has recaptured the idea. What can we say, there will always be conventionally ugly men women think are hot — good for them!

So what celebrity crush are you embarrassed by?

Not sure if tis is embarrassing or not, but I LOVE Matthew Lewis who plays Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies. You know, now, not like from the first movie or anything!

Lady Ginerva — Colin Firth is totally hot. Absolutely, nothing to be embarrassed about. He is 50, but as Jack Donaghy said "rich 50 is middle class 36" or something like that.

I have had a celeb crush on Ricky Gervais for years. No shame in crushing on a smart, articulate man with a faboo accent who makes me laugh. That is far more interesting than a pretty boy himbo.

Matthew Gray Gubler Ben Mansfield from Primeval (which is sort embarassing to admit I watch that show). But while I am admitting embarassing shows I also have a crush on Craig Horner from Legend of the Seeker!

Oh my god postmodern, I can't believe someone else was into Trent! If only he was three dimensional... Also, pretty much all of my celeb crushes are unconventional, but I'm not embarrassed. Current obsession is Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds.

Sam Wiggle. :hides under desk: ......don't judge! I can't help it! His voice is *gorgeous!* He can waltz! He has those big, brown eyes that somehow manage to look bright despite their dark color! And did I mention his voice? :swoon: Also, John Linnell from They Might Be Giants. But that's not as embarrassing as one of The Wiggles.

Are crushes on cartoons considered embarrassing enough? Because I've had a thing for Trent from Daria since I was like 10. McFearless, I love Javier Bardem too! I can't believe people find him unattractive!

I don't have a crush on Vincent in real life, but he is hot when he plays Pete. And, by the way, I adore Pete Campbell, too. Like someone else said, he's way better than Don Draper. Now, aside from him, I have a major crush on Hugh Grant. Who hits up tranny prostitutes for sex. Nbd!

Lol Zuma does look like an old man, like many babies! haha Umm for me it would have to be Javier Bardem. Most people find him ugly:( He's just a sweetheart, I love him

Dick Van Dyke. He's been hot since I first saw him in Mary Poppins. At least my best friend agrees! :)

I'm with you Honey Brown 1976. I think Ricky Gervais is so hot, chunky version or new slimmer version. Plus he looks like a friend my husband calls "my boyfriend".
