Ok, very important question: who’s your celebrity crush these days? Mine is this dreamboat…
Rami Malek. Be still my heart. As the Globe and Mail said, “he’s mostly eyes… thousand-mile eyes.”
Did you see him play Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody? That’s the first time I saw him act, and I was like, WHO IS THAT.
Here’s a fascinating video of Malek (right) and Mercury (left) side by side. Both performances are phenomenal. “There are things he does with that microphone that defy what the mere mortal can do,” says Malek. “He whips around with it with, you know, violence at times, with elegance. He uses it as the air guitar, sometimes right in front of one of the greatest guitar players of all time, Brian May. So, as Brian May is crushing it on guitar, here is Freddie Mercury air-guitaring. And it is still a magnificent thing to watch. It’s so compelling, and only he could get away with that.”
Of course, I’ve watched him on all the talk shows, like Jimmy Fallon, above.
And he can laugh at himself! Here, he’s joking about an awkward moment with Nicole Kidman. I may have even watched him read a children’s story?
Too much! I can’t take it!
