Let’s be honest: What man – or woman for that matter – does not have a Hollywood heartthrob for whom he or she does not secretly carry a torch?
Call them what you will: Models. Hunks. Starlets. Celebrities.
My late fiancée had a name for the actors she got hot and bothered about: She said they were on her “pussycat list.”
I have no idea where the term originated. I never thought to ask.
But I know that the likes of Brendan Frasebook report questions over sea under stone, Johnny Depp and Gary Sinise were on her list.
Well, men are no different.
At the About Men Radio crew, we have our own pussycat list of actresses who make us weak in the knees and our hearts go pitter-patter.
With the Oscars coming up, with its parade of celebrities in their stunning finest walking the red carpet, we thought it would be revealing for the About Men Radio crew to discuss which actresses were on our top 10 list.
The rules were supposed to be simple: We had to come up with 10 names of actresses who were still living but NOT reveal their identities to each other ahead of the recording of the show.
This was meant to ensure some element of surprise.
Of course, AMR posse member John O’Connell emailed me his list ahead of the show.
I did not peek at his list but you should give the show a peek. After you’ve listened, tell us: Who is on YOUR pussycat list? Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org
