The new hottie of the week (for week #3), is none other than John Krasinksi, probably best known for playing Jim Halpert on (my favorite TV show) The Office.
Every so often, there are characters on television where I'm like "Okay, hello, I'm in love with you," and it confuses me as to if I really think the actor is actually hot, or if I'm just attracted to the character they play on television or in a film. I think the character of Jim on The Office is just that type of character - he has the perfect combination of looks, wit, nerdiness, intelligence and charm. So really, do I think John Krasinski is hot, or am I just in loveeee with the character he plays?
After searching for pictures to post of John Krasinski, I decided that this is not the case with him, as much as I love Jim Halpert. Krasinski himself is boy next door good looking, which to me at least, is super, super appealing (but then again, I'm not a big fan of boys who are too pretty). I think that part of the charm is the fact that he just seems like a genuinely sweet guy (though he could be a douchebag, you never know!). Plus, he is a fabulous dresser, with this whole laid back casual, but still looking really good type of thing going! (Over dinner at CPK the other night, my high school bff E and I discussed the fact that we find guys who wear blazers with jeans, or cardigans to be just perfection).
As for Krasinski himself, who you may recognize not only from The Office, but the recent indie hit Away We Go (has anyone seen it? I didn't get the chance), not only is he a graduate from Brown University (I told you, I like them educated ;), but he also took time off from his studies to teach English in Costa Rica before heading off to Brown!
He also attended high school with fellow Office costar B.J. Novak (who plays Ryan, and is a co-writer on the show), and the two remain super close. I love stories of childhood friends like that! Novak actually wrote the first play that Krasinski starred in during high school, which triggered his love of acting.
Unfortunately, this hottie is currently dating Emily Blunt (from Sunshine Cleaning and The Devil Wears Prada), but at least it proves he has good taste, because she herself is eligible to be a hottie of the week! =)
The very well dressed couple:
Anyone who hangs out with Ben Gibbard is good in my book =)
Thoughts? Do any of you have a 'type' of people you find attractive? (for example, I prefer nerds/boys with good style/skinny boys/boys who make me laugh [like J! <3]).
Are any of you fans of The Office? Also, I promise I am going to be taking your recommendations for this category seriously! Sorry I've just been kind of doing my own thing with these for the most part - but I'll be taking your suggestions veryyy seriously! =)
I hope your weekends were wonderful and you had a lovely Monday as well! xo
P.S. I can't wait to post later this week and tell you all about the sweetestttt thing that J did for me! (Which is quite possibly the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me!).
