I’ve been traveling today and have landed in the great state of Texas. And although I believe a certain Mr. Matthew McConnaghey is more likely to be spotted in Austin as opposed to the Dallas/Fort Worth area where I’m currently located, I’d be a big, fat, honking liar. I mean, I’d love to have a cocktail or two with Mr. McConna-heeeeyyy. (*Wipes drool from chin.*) But, I’m not sure how much we’d talk about. I’d probably spend the whole evening listening to that pure Texas drawl and hoping he’d spontaneously remove his shirt.
If I were to hang with someone more cerebral, but equally charm-worthy, I’d have to go with Matt Damon. (Hmm, I’m sensing a trend with these names. Matthew…Matt) I love how he appears to be so down to earth. How can he not be? His mom is/was a teacher. He’s got an Oscar for screenwriting with his bud Ben Affleck for “Good Will Hunting.” And the thing is, I’m not a psycho-delusional “number one fan” and know everything about him, so I could actually have a conversation with the guy.
Speaking of Oscar winners, let’s hear it for my gal and fellow East Carolina University alum, Sandra Bullock. My current work-in-not-nearly-as-much-progress-as-I’d-like is along the lines of “Miss Congeniality” meets “Mean Girls.” I can watch “Miss Congeniality” all day long. I can do the same with “The Blind Side” for which she won an Oscar, but I’d need a Costco-sized box of tissues. We could chat about our ECU days in the theater and dance department (which weren’t at the same time). I have touched the same ballet bars she has. I kind of hope they didn’t Lysol her mojo off of them.
I wish I could say there was just one famous actor or actress I could hang out with, but I’m afraid if I ever found that genie bottle, I’d totally mess it up and end up with someone who has completely commandeered the crazy train.
What actor/actress would you want to meet? Do shots with at your local bar? Mud wrestle? Go on! Be daring!
