Celebrity Crush of the Moment: Andrew Garfield

I recently had time to kill between showings of For Colored Girls (kinda bad) and RED (kinda fun), so I decided to sneak into the last hour of The Social Network, David Fincher’s fantastic film about the birth of Facebook and the death of friendships.  Re-watching the film reminded me of two things: Jesse Eisenberg deserves an Oscar for playing Mark Zuckerberg and, most importantly, Andrew Garfield is the most crushworthy star to come along since Jean Dujardin.

In addition to The Social Network, Andrew has a major role in Never Let Me Go, Mark Romanek’s adaptation of the Kazuo Ishiguro novel that I will probably never read.  Both films perfectly showcase an irresistible sleepy-sexiness that few stars have like my Jake G.  But Andrew does, and he gets the added bonus of not dating Taylor Swift.  His voice, soft and deep, makes you feel like he’s whispering directly into your ear.  And, then, all you want to do is just protect him from the hurt that he endures in both movies.  I’m a little sad that his next role is going to be in the Spiderman reboot, because it means he’s on the fast track to superstardom, and I won’t be able to enjoy  the years of crushing on someone the paparazzi doesn’t follow into the men’s room.

If his wonderful performances in two movies this year wasn’t enough to solidify Andrew’s crush-ability, check out this interview.  Truly, a star is born.
