Good for you. :)

There's something awesome and powerful about accepting who we are.

Sometimes celebrity crushes are a saving grace for feeling good and happy when the rest of the world is depressing!!

Oh, absolutely. That's kinda why, 20 years down the road, I still have a celebrity crush on John Cho. All I've ever seen of him has reinforced his crushability. And, over the last 20 years, he hasn't revealed so much of his life that I've found something to dampen my appreciation.

Sport used to be a source of celebrity crushes for me as well. :)

Still crushing on Stephanie (her legs) :thud:, but I watched "The Great" and Nicholas Hoult is so cute and appealing now. He was in my favorite movie "About a Boy" where he's only 12, but 20 years later, I have a little crush on him, he grew up well and his English accent is a plus!

I know this post is several months old, but I want to second having a crush on Nicholas Hoult, and it's all because of The Great. I recently watched both seasons and even though his character, Peter, can be such a dolt/horrible person, he is SOOOOOOO endearing and funny in it. I will be devastated when/if his character is killed off. I hope the creators ignore history and let him stay till the very end.

I remember enjoying Warm Bodies when it first came out and liking the X-men films, but The Great has now turned me into a Nicholas fan, and I've been watching more of his films, like Mad Max, The Favourite, and About a Boy. He's great in all of them.

I did love him in Warm Bodies. :)

It's fortunate I saw that movie since zombie movies are something I generally avoid. But they filmed in Montreal, including two nights at "my" metro station. So I had to check it out and ended up loving it. :)

My favorite zombie there is. :love:

I did enjoy that it was a comedy rather than a scary zombie film. It was a cool twist on the genre.

It's also awesome when your own city gets featured in a movie because then you can be like, OMG I know where that is!!!! I know what's around it and how to get there.

sunnykerr 02-17-2022 06:19 PM

I have to avoid movies that have too much tension. And I hate seeing stuff that looks like it hurts. So, yeah, normal zombie movies aren't for me. :)

Montreal is often used to film Hollywood movies, to sub in for Europe more often than not. So it happens a lot that you'll be watching something and go "wait..." Warm Bodies is, like, super obviously filmed in Montreal. The locations aren't even kinda disguised. And I think that's awesome. :lol:

And I also think that Nicholas Hoult was awfully good in it. I blame About a Boy for not being able to crush on him. I'm not old enough to be his mother but, because of About a Boy, I still kinda feel like I could be. :lol:

I still have nightmares because of 28 Days Later. I saw it because I love Cillian Murphy, but man, that movie made me cover my eyes so much.

Is that airport they filmed in still abandoned? It's nuts to me that there is an abandoned airport.

:lol: I totally get a role forever...not tainting but determining how you view an actor. It's like how I always see Jack Nicholson as a nutcase because of the Shining even though he doesn't always play a nutcase.

I assume About a Boy is the very first thing you saw him in / saw it when it first came out?
First thing I saw Nicholas in was X-men First Class, and he was a young adult by the time that came out, so I don't forever see him as a child. Plus, he's only 4 years younger than me and is way taller than I am, so that helps me not see him as a little kid. It is fun, though, watching About A Boy and seeing how even though his face changed a lot (thanks, puberty) the mannerisms are still there.
But you know what is REALLY trippy? Watching About A Boy and then directly afterwards watching a movie he did as an adult that has a sex scene in it. I'm like, NO! You're a child! You can't do that! :lol:

sunnykerr 02-19-2022 12:51 PM

That airport was never truly abandoned. It never became what it was supposed to be so, in terms of international flights, yeah, nothing's happening there. But it's the hub for all the cargo flights (FedEx, for example), for all manner of local flights (for destinations up north, for instance), etc. And it's also a site for local plane-making companies.

About a Boy was probably the first thing I saw Nicolas Hoult in, yeah. And I was closer in age to him, I suppose, but I was more interested in Hugh Grant when I watched it. :) So Nicolas was definitely "the kid" to me. :lol:

It's funny, too, because Natalia Tena plays Nicolas Hoult's crush in About a Boy and everyone and their brother knows her as Osha from Game of Thrones or Tonks from the Harry Potter movies. But, to me, she was always that girl from About a Boy because that's where I first saw her. :)

Anyway, now that I think about it, I haven't seen Nicolas Hoult in a full-on sex scene. I look forward to seeing how I'll react if that ever happens. :lol:

Ah, well, that's good to hear. Good that it is being used and that it isn't just an eyesore that ended up having moss/ivy grow on it and silly teenagers getting up to no good in it.

:lol: I can understand crushing on Hugh Grant rather than looking at the movie and coming away with a Nicholas crush. He was just the dorky kid back then with a kinda bad haircut. Hugh was the appealing grownup.

When I was watching it I was listening to her voice and I was like, this voice is soooo familiar to me. And then it clicked that it was Tonks and I was floored by how different she looked in her About a Boy costume. And then I chuckled at how Nicholas auditioned to be Harry Potter (but obviously didn't get it) and he could've been reunited with her.

haha, if it's an absolute pressing matter, the movie you can check out is Newness. That one has quite a bit. Then this movie has him playing an absolute scummy, corrupt cop who tries sexually assaulting a prisoner and he sticks his hands down his underwear to *ahem* get himself ready.

Long story short, then-PM Trudeau (aka our current PM's dad) expropriated a lot of farmers and villagers to build that airport. So it's pretty isolated. It could have turned into an eyesore, but it would hardly be a place where people go to party. Way too hard to get to. :lol:

I thought Nicolas was awesome in that movie. He gave a great performance. His haircut was part of the character. But he was a child. I would never have had a crush on him no matter how normal he might have been made to look. He was a kid.

I never watched GOT, so Osha is not a character I'm familiar with. I just remembered her face from Abour a Boy. Then I saw her in Mrs Henderson Presents and then in the HP movies. I recognized her face.

I didn't know Nicolas auditioned for Harry Potter... but then I suppose most kids who were into acting probably auditioned for one part or another. :)

:lmao: Oh, I'm in no rush to see stuff like that. I just meant that, if I ever do, I'll be paying attention to my reaction. I suspect I'll feel a bit odd, seeing the kid having grown up.

Again, not that it makes any sense. I'm not that much older than he is. But it's a weird mental thing where you identify certain people as kids and get weirded out when they get older. My cousin's daughter gave birth a year ago. I remember her being a baby. So, you know, it is utterly bizarre to me that she's now a mother. And she's not a teen mother or anything like that. She had her own daughter at a perfectly normal age to be having a child. But my brain... :shrug:

So it's the same thing with actors, I guess.

Hope the farmers / villagers ended up getting somewhere nice to live and work since their land was taken.

Oh yea, totally agree about the performance being very good. If you think about it, About a Boy was sold as a comedy but there's pretty dark subject matter in it. And he did really well acting out that scene where he has to see his mom passed out on the couch after her suicide attempt. You just want to hug him there and shield him from harm.

I never heard of Mrs. Henderson Presents :eek:

Yea, they probably literally auditioned every single person in England for those roles. But it's probably a good thing he didn't get it because what movies would he not have been able to do if he was committed to HP, you know? Plus on a strictly physical basis, it would've been really weird framing-wise to have short Emma, kinda short Rupert, and then giant Nicholas in a scene together by the time HBP-DH came out. Short Dan looks better in the frame with them.

I imagine a moment of you sitting on the couch, and feeling so uncomfortable that you want it to open up and eat you whole.

Totally get that feeling. My cousin's daughters just turned 10 & 9 and I am like, sorry but I remember the day they were born as being yesterday. I can remember where I was when I got the text that their births happened. How are they close to puberty now? It makes me feel so old.

And I was listening to a podcast with Nick the other day, and he was talking about how he always used to be the youngest one on set. Now they have him playing dads. So even he is weirded out. There's nothing like acting to really show the passage of time.
