On our drive back home from Atlantic City, I asked J which 5 celebrities would be on his “freebies list.”
(Just in case you don’t know what a freebies list is, Urban Dictionary defines it as “A list of 5 celebrities who, should the opportunity arise, one is allowed to sleep with without it being considered as cheating by your significant other.”)
J couldn’t think of one right away, so he asked me who is on mine. I could only think of two right away (Jon Hamm and John Krasinski), so we ended up spending a good portion of the trip discussing our lists.
Here is who I ultimately chose (in no particular order):
- Alexander Skarsgård
- John Krasinski
- Jon Hamm
- Robert Downey Jr.
- Ryan Reynolds
As you can see, I tend to gravitate toward men with dark features and a streak of bad-boy charm. Ryan Reynolds is the odd one out as he is too clean-cut and a bit too “pretty boy” for my tastes, but his mocking humor (or at least in the characters he plays) won me over.
Here is J’s freebies list, again in no particular order:
- Christina Hendricks
- Elizabeth Hurley
- Scarlett Johansson
- Sasha Grey
- Salma Hayek
J clearly has a thing for voluptuous bombshells. The odd one out would be Sasha Grey (yes, I am well aware that she is an adult film actress), whom J chose “because she’s one of the hottest pornstars right now and every guy I know wants her.”
Obviously our lists are just for fun and we had a good time discussing these celebrities with no jealousy or hostility. We even joked that because we both took so long finalizing our lists, we should print them out, laminate them and carry them in our wallets like Ross did in Friends.
I’m not sure what I would ever do if I ever did run into anyone on my list — I’d probably just clam up and hide. J would most likely try to strike up a conversation with the women on his list, but I know that he would never take it any further.
Do you have a freebies list? Have you shared it openly with your significant other? Who is on your list?
