I’ve always said it: make a girl laugh and you are half way there… but then that would have me lusting after every decent comedian out there, which I don’t - I’m more the see-a-guy-in-leather-with-a-guitar-and-drool kind of woman. There is only one funny man that makes my knees weak, and he’s a bit of a rock star.
My crush began watching one of his stand-up DVDs. He was wearing eyeliner, lipstick, heels and a satin dress over some sexy PVC trousers. Since then, I’ve seen him wear miniskirts, fake breasts, more lipstick, more fake breasts and have fallen even harder for him.
I watched him run marathons for charity and became fascinated with his calves, and his terribly tantalising ability of persevering against all odds. I see him in his current “boy mode”, or in any of his many films, and once again I find him irresistible.
I can’t help it, whether it’s his thirst for a challenge, his impeccable manicure, his hilarious stories on squirrels hiding make-up on trees, how ridiculously attractive can a man on heels get?!
The thing is, dearest Big Fashionista readers, I have met him in person, and I can assure you, not only is he a really lovely guy, he is even sexier in real life.
This is my secret - and now, not so secret - crush. Comedian, actor, runner, executive transvestite, inspirational man: the wonderful, Mr. Eddie Izzard.
