Yesterday Elizabeth enlightened me on the hottest men from 1910-1950. Since I have very little knowledge of the hottest men of yesteryear, she got very little pushback. Today…I have some opinions!
[Click HERE to read our earlier conversation and what led to Elizabeth saying…]
Elizabeth: Just to splash some cold water on you
Elizabeth: For the 1960s I have again chosen Cary Grant, because his perfection cannot be contained by one decade.
Elizabeth: I realize this is cheating, and I don’t care.
Tricia: I approve of your cheating.
Truly Hot Men are Always Hot
Elizabeth: My favorite movie with him, Charade, came out in 1963
It’s definitive proof that funny men are 1,000% hotter
Tricia: We watched that together, right??
Elizabeth: Not together.
Tricia: Wait. Which Cary Grant movie did we watch? Oh, with a cat burglar?
Elizabeth: To Catch a Thief
the one with the striped shirt from earlier
Tricia: Oh, yes!
You’ve been educating me on Cary Grant for a while now!
A+ friend award to YOU!
Elizabeth: This is my contribution to the world
Tricia: I do love a man who lets things be thrown on him.
And who casually disregards the inconvenience.
Elizabeth: Okay, moving on
I think you already know who I’ve selected for the 1970s –
ROBERT REDFORD. God bless America and Robert Redford’s amber waves of beautiful, beautiful hair.
Tricia: ROBERT REDFORD MY DARLING
Elizabeth: (I know I sent you this same gif like twice already, but I honestly don’t believe there’s a better one out there)
Tricia: There’s not. This is human perfection.
I’ve seen a lot of Greek statues around lately, and HE WOULD FIT RIGHT IN
Sassy AND hot! The best combination!
(this may be why I am so often attracted to gay men)
Elizabeth: There’s nothing more I can say about Robert; the pictures speak for themselves, I think.
Tricia: Yes, and I don’t know if I can handle much more.
I know who I WANT…
Elizabeth: 1980s – this was actually a tough decade for me. I had to think about it quite a bit.
Tricia: A hard thing to think about
Elizabeth: I finally picked Harrison Ford, but am open to suggestions.
(I made this decision by Googling “top movies 1980s;” nobody from this decade made a great impression on me, apparently.)
Elizabeth: (Yes, I know this is from a 1977 movie, but I don’t care; the ’80s sucked.)
Tricia: Ah, okay. I can be okay with this.
But I was one of the minority of people who was all “LUKE SKYWALKER who cares about Han Solo” so…
Elizabeth: Who was your pick? Because I’m really not happy with this
Tricia: …Jeff Goldblum
(the ’80s sucked)
Tricia: Sexy sexy nerd vibes.
Elizabeth: Okay, okay, the glasses pic is good
Tricia: …I’m going to get very opinionated from now on. We’re getting into my media lifetime.
Who you got for the 1990s?
It better be JTT! (lol lol just kidding)
Elizabeth: YES, bring on the opinions!
(please try to forget I didn’t know who JTT was until like a month ago)
Tricia: I have already blocked this shameful knowledge from my memory
Elizabeth: The 1990s were also a difficult decade for me. The obvious ones are Leo and Brad, but I felt meh about the ’90s in general. Great decade for romantic comedies, but I am ambivalent about the men.
I finally settled on Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You, which came out in 1999.
OH NO I’M STUCK
You have literally chosen my all-time Most Hottest DREAMBOATIEST man of my entire lustful existence.
Elizabeth: He is BEAUTIFUL.
Tricia: He IS
You know how most men look either hot OR nice? He looks both hot AND nice.
Elizabeth: aww so true
Tricia: It is an extremely rare occurrence
Elizabeth: Well, Cary Grant!
Tricia: Okay, but…Cary Grant is more HANDSOME.
Heath Ledger is definitely hot.
Elizabeth: mmkay, fair
For 2000s, we have George Clooney, the closest living successor to Cary Grant
come ON, Tricia
He has the eyebrows and everything!
Tricia: You have now chosen “Cary Grant” THREE TIMES, ELIZABETH
Your preferences are showing
Elizabeth: I mean, I have been saying for the past six decades that Cary Grant is the most perfect man ever to exist, so.
Don’t know why you’re surprised.
Tricia: I counter your “Knock-Off Cary Grant” with my own “Knock-Off Robert Redford”
Tricia: Actual Greek God
Elizabeth: Maybe it’s the unfortunate spike 2000s hair, but I don’t believe he has as much of a sensitive side as Robert Redford does.
Tricia: Well, he did adopt a bunch of kids
Elizabeth: Well, but forget the kids; don’t you think Robert Redford would be a better kisser?
Tricia: Hmmmm…I’m willing to test them both and let you know
STOP IT WITH THAT GIF
Ah, here, for both of us…
Elizabeth: Okay, see, that hair is better.
Tricia: Anyway, I’m arguing for him over GEORGE CLOONEY. I won’t step on your other decades.
Give the 2000s to Brad Pitt and let’s see what you’ve got for the 2010s
Did you go that far?
Elizabeth: I did! The present:
Tricia: I’m so nervous.
Tricia: Why was I nervous!?!?!?
Elizabeth: As if I would pick anyone else!
Tricia: See Also: Hot AND Nice
Tricia: Oh God, my whole body is having a seizure
I got so distracted by all those other men, but HIS EYEBROWS AND SMILE
Truly the hottest man on earth (sorry Cary Grant)
Elizabeth: Well, Cary is dead, so
not to put too fine a point on it
Tricia: You are so callous, I LOVE IT
Elizabeth: So what have we learned?
We love white boys with great hair who love to laugh?
Tricia: We’re so basic.
