You guys know that we’re never going to have super conventional celebrity crushes here on Welcome to Ladyville. Channing Tatum is probably never going to make an appearance (although I do love Chan Chan). Well, I realize that today’s celebrity crush is especially unconventional, but you know what? I’m pretty sure there are other Harry Dean Stantonites out there (that’s what I’m calling us. It’s better than Harry Deanians). Or at least I like to believe so.
Anyway, I have a total crush on Harry Dean Stanton. So sue me (please don’t sue me, although I seriously doubt you’d have much of a case). I once decided to watch every movie Harry Dean Stanton’s been in, but then I realized he’s basically been in every movie ever, so I gave up before I even started.
My crush originally developed when I saw him in Pretty in Pink–sure, Blaine, Duckie, and Steff (yes, Steff) were crush-worthy, but don’t forget Andie’s dad. Just look at him!
He’s so good at having heart to hearts with Molly Ringwald.
Harry Dean also looked way fine in Paris Texas, a movie that’s mainly notable to me because it’s directed by Wim Wenders, who has the best name in the world.
He was also in Alien, a movie that played all the damn time when I was a kid (I grew up with boys).
He looks good in a cowboy hat, which isn’t something you can say about a lot of men.
But most importantly, Harry Dean Stanton looks wonderful with a cat. What more could you want from a celebrity crush?
