I was reminded tonight, as I often am when we watch cable TV, that my husband cannot stand Tara Moss. Or the blonde Linda Robson on British sitcom Birds of a Feather. He’s not into Julia Roberts, either. Simply cannot see what is meant to be attractive about any of them, and the huge popularity of Roberts has him especially stumped.
I note that all three women have a wider than average mouth: as he says, when Julia Roberts smiles her mouth is such a gash that he expects her head to fall off. (I don’t see this the same way at all.) He hastens to add that he’s sure that all three women are perfectly pleasant people, he just has a visceral reaction that he doesn’t want to watch any of them on his screen.
As they say in the classics, there’s no accounting for taste. There’s a large female following for Colin Farrell, who leaves me utterly cold (I picked up a bargain bin DVD of the critically praised Phone Booth ages ago and have yet to psych myself into watching it). Jennifer Lopez: meh. Paris Hilton: what the fuck are you smoking?
So, bitch to your heart’s content. What inexplicable celebrity can you totally not stand? (Let’s take Tori Spelling as read.)
