Some might say, perhaps, that an absent father has contributed to my love of older men.
I mean, I would never say that. Never. I would like to think I’m reformed from acting out on such issues.
But when my friend agreed with Jon Hamm as an undeniable hottie in a recent post, it was followed with: “You know this is our daddy issues at play… Right?”
So in celebration of the daddy issues I may or may not have:
5 Hotties I’d Happily Have Daddy Issues For
5) George Clooney
Cliche right? I know. But he gets better with age. Yum.
4) Martin Sheen
I realize about half of the readers are going to be saying “Ick Ick icky” about this one, and that’s fine. But you have to watch The West Wing to really GET this one. President Bartlett is the ULTIMATE father figure and while I could happily comment on the more obvious Sam Seaborn or the intellectual route with Josh Lyman, in the name of the list’s theme, I think I should admit my odd attraction to the ever wise, and ever dreamy Josiah.
3) Jon Stewart
What can I say? I like my men smart. And grey. And perhaps a tad bit Jewish. Deal with it.
2) Shemar Moore
At 41 and not greying, I decided that he and Taye Diggs did not constitute the “daddy issue” list. Then, in a moment of weakness, I Googled Shemar, found the below pic and thought “Sweet Jesus.” There was some drooling that followed that.
Then he went on the list. At 41, he could have fathered me at 19, thus making him a suitable and so-damn-dreamy candidate for this list. Ugh.
1) Jon Hamm
He is the cause for this list. And… Just look at him. It’s SO good.
If I were to round out my top ten, the other 5, in no particular order would be: Chris Noth, Taye Diggs, Cary Grant, Aaron Sorkin and Barack Obama. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I think the President of the ACTUAL free world is less hot than the president of the imaginary West Wing America.
It’s my blog, it’s my list.
If you have any additions, let me know.
And you know what? If all “Daddy Issue decisions” looked as good as the above ones, instead of unfortunately hooking up with the guy who is uncomfortably too old, the world would be a happier place.
