I blame @danidee for any secondhand embarrassment. She's challenging the funny community to talk about their embarrassing celebrity crushes, and here's mine:
No, not that Robert Redford.
This cranky-looking old guy. He just does it for me.
He just does a lot of philanthropy you guys.
He's supported environmentalism, LGBT rights, the arts, and Native American rights. That's what all the kids find sexy nowadays, right?
Don't look at me.
I'm not the only one, ok!
He even gets a hashtag. That's how hip he is.
This... might be impossible to explain.
But I'll try anyway. See, he's a really talented actor. Like, phenomenally good. And he seems like a genuinely nice person. Trying to use his celebrity to make the world a better place. And he's just got this really sweet smile and these eyes that like... they seem so humble and yet so full of experience and knowledge and it's just really nice to know that he exists okay.
Thank you. I'll find my chill.
