Who’s Your Celebrity Crush?

Johnny Flynn's eyes

Who’s your current celebrity crush*? I have a big new one…

Johnny Flynn

Johnny Flynn, who plays Mr. Knightley in the new movie Emma. Have you seen it? It’s a delightful confection — full of pastel dresses, flowery hats and, of course, matchmaking.

Johnny Flynn

One thing I love about Jane Austen’s novels — and the movies inspired by them — is the rapt attention to tiny social cues. Lingering eye contact, furtive glances, bare hand holding while dancing! All these things add up to such heart-pounding chemistry, you almost can’t stand it. We were actually fanning ourselves at the movie theater.

Johnny Flynn

The two actors’ smoldering connection was almost immediate. “I did this sort of chemistry read thing with Anya, and that felt really special,” Johnny tells Wonderland Magazine. “We did one of the arguments, and there was this energy that you rarely feel when you first meet and read with someone.”

A few more photos, if you’d like to see…

And behind the scenes on set.

Another movie tidbit: Jane Austen famously said about Emma, “I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.” And the actress Anya Taylor-Joy interprets her as a little odd, snobby, uptight, etc — much more so than Gwyneth Paltrow’s 1996 version. “The newest Emma is the meanest Emma, which makes her the best Emma,” says Petrana Radulovic in Polgon.

Says Anya herself: “There are little paragraphs [in the novel] that are like, ‘With her hair ragged and the maid sent away, Emma sat down to be miserable. I just loved that. This woman is living in her own film, and everything is dramatic and opulent.”

So, tell me: Who is your celebrity crush these days? Here are my past ones

* I hope you’re hanging in there and staying well with all the intense news and coronavirus updates. It’s a lot. I thought a lighthearted chat about celebrity crushes might be welcome right about now. xo

P.S. Random turn ons and nine couples with the best on-screen chemistry.

  1. Susan Laurnell Young says...

    Lakeith Stanfield – if you haven’t seen The Photograph I highly recommend.

  2. Kate says...

    Theo James – especially in Sanditon, even tho he’s kind of a cad. Those eyes. Those lips….

  3. Caroline says...

    Dev Patel („Modern Love“) and Max Minghella („The Handmaid‘s Tale“)

    • Allison says...

      Oh, Dev Patel. Sometime, just before filming Lion, he went from looking like a kid to looking like a man, and now he is just distressingly handsome. Like, it’s almost problematic. May I suggest the film The Wedding Guest, simply because you will swoon at the sight of him? My goodness.

  4. Loesie says...

    Peter Scanavino from Law & Order! Ahhhhh ❤️

  5. Alyssa says...

    Henry Cavill (aka the Witcher). Damn. I literally have to fan myself when he’s on screen.

    • Sally says...

      YES!!! Me too!

  6. Emily N says...

    MICHAEL B JORDAN. Those lips….

  7. Laura says...

    Donald Glover
    Paul Rudd
    Rob Delaney
    Richard Ayoade
    Jon Hamm

    💕

  8. Alina says...

    This past weekend we went to see ‘The Gentlemen’ by Guy Ritchie. Charlie Hunnam looked great in it. Now I have to start watching ‘Son of Anarchy’.

  9. Joanna Tsay says...

    John Krasinski and John Mulaney

  10. betsy g says...

    So Johnny Flynn has been my celebrity crush for a while now. I actually found him through his music. Did you know he is an incredible guitar player and has put out multiple albums? Google Einsteins idea and Ghost of O’Donahue- you wont regret it. He inspired me to learn guitar. He’s wonderful.

  11. Rosie says...

    Current celebrity crush is Jude Law. Just another one of those tall handsome Brits. There seem be so many of them.

  12. Katie says...

    Andrew Scott…thanks to CoJ…

  13. Chelsea says...

    Oscar Isaacs
    Clive Owen
    Lea Seydoux
    And I’ve always had a thing for Jack White

  14. Martina says...

    Joshua Jackson since “The Affair”… Just LOVE him!!
    Can’t wait for “Little fires everywhere” to air :)

  15. Ugh Zachary Levi (especially in Mrs. Maisel) and Matt Smith (mostly in the Crown!) Like super swoooon over here, lol.

    -Libby

  16. M says...

    When I was younger, obviously Robert Pattinson hahaha and now Sam Hueghan. I moved to Paris a few months ago and saw them BOTH some weeks apart. Both times in empty random streets and I couldn’t BELIEVE my luck. Hahahaha I didn’t talk to either, though.

  17. J-Dub says...

    I haven’t scrolled through all the comments but Johnny Flynn is dreamy. I believe he was born in South Africa, not England? Loved him in “Lovesick” and his guest cameos and song on Detectorists. I need to see Emma now.

  18. Em says...

    MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS
    ERIC BANA
    RICHARD ARMITAGE

  21. Jenny says...

    Daniel Kaluuya
    Michael Che
    Ben Mendelsohn

  22. Seth MacFarlane, always and forever. Gorgeous smile, gorgeous voice (his albums are insanely good), funny, charming, and everyone around him talks about how kind he is. If you haven’t watched The Orville, I highly suggest you try it (it’s on Hulu!). I loved both seasons but season 2 is a lot better.

  23. Lainey says...

    Anyone watching High Fidelity with Zoe Kravitz? I may have a tiny crush on her & the Scottish musician.

    • Chelsea says...

      Love her. Had a huge crush on her in Big Little Lies.

    • Jax says...

      Yes, Thomas Doherty! I crush on both Kravitz (long crush since Dope) and Doherty too!

  24. Jona Hilario says...

    please tell me you’ve watched lovesick aka scrotal recall!

  25. Alex says...

    About 3 years ago, my husband and I were hanging out a local pub in Gowanus, Brooklyn with our then toddler daughter. My Aussie husband struck up a conversation with this English dad who was also just hanging out with his toddler. (non-brooklyn readers, it is a very common sight to see families with little kids at pubs on the weekends here – we’re not drunks!) Usual exchange for expat parents commenced…”where you from, how long you been here, what brought you to NYC…” The English dad says he’s an actor. My blunt husband jokes, “Right, so how’s that working out for you?” English dad says “pretty good actually, I’m on a TV show and I’m here doing a play on Broadway.” They both had a good laugh and then we all hung out and drank a few pints while our toddlers played together in the back room of this bar.
    Anyway – turns out it was Johhny Flynn. He was very cool, great sense of humor, sweet dad, humble… So Joanna, I can vouch that your new celebrity crush is also nice in real life. (high five!)

    • Emma says...

      Oh man, this reminds me of the birthday party dinner scene from Notting Hill!

    • Ève says...

  45. Magic mike 2..scene in the gas station

  46. Jodi says...

    My celebrity crush was and will always be Heath Ledger. I first fell in love with him in 2000 after seeing 10 Things I Hate About You. He had a special twinkle in his eyes and every time I see his photos, that twinkle is still there.

  47. H says...

    Nick Kroll!

  48. Beth says...

    Okay. I’ve been holding out on you guys. Here is one of my best kept secrets: telltalefood on Instagram. Meet Julian and fuel all your farm-life-with-hot-British-man fantasies. He’s a chef, farmer, and sustainable eating/living guru. And he loves his goats and dogs so much, it’s adorable.

    You’re welcome.

    • Lori says...

      Ummm yes, adorable is the perfect word!
      Thanks! :)

  49. Caraline says...

    • K says...

      Yes to Mark Ruffalo! Swoon.

  52. Tracey says...

    Sam Heughan
    Colin Firth
    Mark Ruffalo
    Paul Rudd
    Great idea for a post! So many hotties!!

    • Sara says...

      I have the same exact list sans Mark Ruffalo (no offense to him – he’s great). Perfect!

  53. Meghan says...

    Cillian Murphy in Peaky Blinders… gah!!!

    • Bette says...

      100%. Cillian Murphey, Peaky Blinders. I don’t normally have celebrity crushes and crushing on him made me feel like a teen again. I haven’t watched it for a couple years and still feel giddy thinking of him.

  54. Ines says...

    Oh yes I loved Johnny Flynn in “Lovesick”!! He’s also a musician, you should listen to “The Water” <3
    Looking forward to seeing "Emma"

    • Jess says...

      yes! love “The Water”

  55. Amy Denmeade says...

    When I first saw the ‘Emma’ trailer, I wasn’t entirely sure about Flynn as Mr Knightley, but his performance won me over. The film was beautifully done.

  56. Leanne says...

    Paul Rudd, always and forever. Michael B. Jordan. Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

  57. Lisa says...

    Always and forever Andy Samberg. This came up https://www.instagram.com/p/B9WtLhbpagu/?igshid=p6c05lpfqtsl on my Instagram feed and I’m still recovering.

    One of the hottest scenes ever (IMO) was in the Kiera Knightley Pride and Prejudice when her sister’s suitor touched the ribbon on her skirt. It was this tender moment, so filled with desire

  58. Tara says...

    Christian Bale. Just watched Ford vs Ferrari, and almost have to leave the room. But Bale as Laurie/Teddy in Little Women, always and forever.

    • Nicole says...

    • CS says...

      Integrity and honestly really are hot! Because these traits are always accompanied by true courage.

  62. Jenna says...

    Tyson Beckford

  63. Kathryn says...

    I recently watched the Keira Knightley Pride and Prejudice with my 8 and 5 year old, and they loved it! I excited for my new period piece movie watching buddies, and can’t wait to see this with them.

    • Tara says...

      Same! I took my 6 year old daughter to see Little Women in December, and I’m planning to take her to see Emma this weekend! There’s nothing like seeing the love for period movies in the eyes of your babies.

  64. Kristin says...

    Joanna, Johnny is a dreamboat and not just because he embodies Mr. Knightley so well. See: his music! (Esp The River with Laura Marling); and his show Lovesick! (Esp the scenes where he declares his undying love).

  65. AJ says...

    Anyone else adding to their Netflix queue/list because of this post and comments?

    • Katha says...

      Yep!

  66. Susan Magnolia says...

    Johnny Flynn is a folk singer too and when I first saw him perform “the Detectorists” theme song in an episode of the show I was in love! I had already seen BBC’s “Scrotal Recal” or “Lovesick” as it was renamed for its American release, and have been crushing ever since.

  67. Alexandra says...

    Sam Heughan from Outlander. Dreamy.

    • H says...

      YES YES 1000% YES

    • Emme says...

      So much YESSSSS

    • Lauren says...

      God, I can’t get enough, but also, I had to stop watching because the tension between me and my TV was too much

    • Sara says...

      100%

  68. Sara says...

    Gillian Anderson in Sex Education, even if I am straight. Her skin! Her fantastic hair! Her clothes! I can’t take my eyes off her. And Sam Heughan oh em gee. He started an Outlander Whisky called “Sassenach Spirits” and it is what this world needs more of…

    • Alex says...

      Yes!! How does Gillian Anderson just get hotter and hotter?!?!?!?!

  69. Maclean Nash says...

    I was introduced to Johnny Flynn via “Lovesick” on Netflix and he bothered me soooo much (well, to be fair his character did). But him in those period pieces aint bad!

    Brad Leone. Need I say more?
    Paul Rudd. Forever and always.
    John Slattery – swoontown.

  70. Amy says...

    Henry Cavil- the Tudors and The Witcher
    Andrew Scott- aka Hot priest

    • Janet says...

      I agree! Henry Cavil-The Tudors

  71. sylvia says...

    Diego Luna <3

  72. Emily says...

    Also:
    Hasan Minhaj (Super dreamy, smart, great smile)

  73. Carol says...

    Shaved-head Henry Cavill circa The Tudors. Once he grew his hair a la Superman…. it was over.

  74. Amanda says...

    My new one is Luke Kirby! AKA Lenny Bruce in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

    I finally took the plunge and found the series so delightful that I binged all three seasons inside of a month! Any time Lenny is on screen you can basically feel the crackling tension with Midge…especially season three! The dance scene in season three, episode five…talk about fanning yourself!!

    • Ari says...

      If you like Luke Kirby, check out Take This Waltz. Oooof.

    • Amanda says...

      Thanks for the rec! Adding it to my list :)

    • Elisabeth says...

      Thank you! I haven’t heard this from ANYONE else and have been amazed. He’s SO FRIGGIN HOT AND FUNNY AND TALL.

  75. Emily says...

    Dan Levy from Schitt’s Creek :)

    • Emily says...

      Yes!!

    • Kat O says...

      Yes, and: Noah Reid (Patrick). So sweet and charming. Plus he has all these little mannerisms that just exude confidence and make me swoon!

    • Rebecca says...

      Yes David and Patrick forever! Can’t wait for the next series and the wedding drama.

  76. Jessica says...

    I’m in love with Tig Notaro and Carrie Brownstein!

  77. Yes but have you listened to his music? Incredible.

  78. Liz says...

    Michael Ontkean in Slapjacks Shot. Dear God what a beautiful man.

  79. mlkeen says...

    You have to see Lovesick starring Johnny Flynn, and one of my favorite TV crushes, Daniel Ings! It’s a romantic comedy TV series that is so funny and so charming!

  80. Heather says...

    Maybe this stretches the definition of celebrity, but has anyone else noticed Dale Ho, Director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project? He’s been in a few ACLU Instagram stories over the past year explaining complex Supreme Court cases, and the combination of lawyer smarts + snappy courtroom style + commitment to social justice + cute glasses + general hotness is pretty fantastic.

  81. callie says...

    If you like Johnny Flynn, you MUST watch Lovesick on Netflix. He stars in all three seasons. SO good!

    My current celeb crush is Andy Samberg and its HARD. Jake Peralta…Popstar…SNL…he’s sexy in the most low-key way.

  82. Ali says...

    Kyle Chandler!

  83. Sarah Beth says...

    Jake Gyllenhaal, forever. And he has been so WEIRD lately (Sack Lunch Bunch!), but also into musicals, and that combo has been more appealing than ever.

  84. Erin says...

    John Mulaney — his brand of humor really gets me. “Diner Lobster” cemented it. And Colin Firth because, duh, Mr. Darcy. :)

    • Stacey says...

      How is Rami Malek not on here yet?! Those eyes!!

  85. Eleanor C Greene says...

    Omg my ultimate crush too! Gay but doesn’t hurt to look :)

  86. S says...

    Willa Fitzgerald! Check out Dare Me if you’re looking for a guilty pleasure.

  87. Margaret Forsey says...

    Richard Ayodade! He is so intelligent and dry, and is so incredibly well dressed. And has great hair! Mary Lambert- she is so warm and funny, talented, and is a mega babe, and jokes about farts a lot. And Dick Van Dyke will forever be my old man crush. ❤️ I love his goofiness and dancing skills.

  88. Claire says...

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jim Sturgess + Jude Law

    • AG says...

      JIM STURGESS!!! My dreamboat!

      I’ve just seen a face I can’t forget the time or place Where we just meet She’s just the girl for me And I want all the world to see We’ve met, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

      Thank you Claire for letting me reminisce!!!

  89. Sasha Court says...

    I met Johnny in a small bar Toronto when he was on tour with his music and partied with him and his band mates that night including all of Mumford and Sons when they were touring Canada together as start up bands trying to ‘make it’. Man, this post brought back some fun memories, thanks!

    • Mercy says...

      Omg this is amazing, I’m so jealous haha! My friend and I have been Johnny fans since like ’08 and we’d always go to his nearby shows when he was touring. It’s wild to see him in more and more TV/films the past few years!

  90. Eloise says...

    Brad Pitt (always and forever) and Lin Manuel Miranda

  91. Jen says...

    Noah Reid aka Patrick from Schitt’s Creek. So sweet. And that voice.

    • Anna says...

      oof, same. What he’s done with that character is really special. And his own music is quite nice as well.

    • EmilyS says...

      Same!! He’s touring now – I’m seeing him in April!

  92. Elizabeth says...

    Always such a fun conversation…mine are all over the place and almost always based in specific characters / roles that actors have played:

    Jay Ellis (as Lawrence from Insecure)
    Kit Harrington (as Jon Snow from GoT)
    Timothee Chalamet (as Laurie in Little Women)
    Rami Malek (as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody)
    John Krasinski (as Jim in the Office)

    but also Trevor Noah, just always

    • Lisa says...

      I once bought hummus from someone who looked like Trevor, and I realised how much I fancied the real Trevor (unless Trevor Noah was selling hummus from mojo market in Cape Town?) because I got all frazzled and tummy butterflies

  93. Deb in Oklahoma says...

    Ohh, forever and always…Don Johnson. I know, I know…that makes me kinda old, but it’s been a long-standing crush since the 80’s and I just sigh every time I see him.

  94. Laura says...

    Adam Driver, especially in the last Star Wars movie, and even though he hasn’t been in much lately, I will always adore Jim Sturgess

    • AG says...

      JIM STURGESS AGAIN!!!
      Do you belong in the same fan club as I do? LOVE LOVE LOVE!

      Someone write a ‘where are they now’ with Jim Sturgess please. Citizens of the world want to know.

  95. Holly says...

    I’m still not over Hot Priest. Also Adam Driver (as I read a director say somewhere “He’s a fucking MARINE who went to JUILLIARD!”)

  96. Em says...

    OK that photo of him behind the scenes & I am SOLD! hahah

  97. Sally says...

    Jonathan Groff. :)

    Unfortunately he’s gay as the day is long, but a girl can imagine. :)

  98. Lori says...

    I haven’t been this excited about a movie in a VERY LONG TIME! Can’t wait to see it!

  99. RMC says...

    You must hear Johnny sing and play the guitar. Go find it, you won’t be sorry! :)

  100. Liz says...

    I have a new one……Sanjay Gupta! So random.

    • kim says...

      A little nerdy, but I’m with you.

  101. Ana May says...

    In addition to Matthew Goode, Zachary Levi from Mrs Maisel season 2 ( swoon)

    • Amy says...

      Second Zachary from Mrs. Maisel, so hot

  102. jina says...

    I’m just going to say that Theo James on PBS’s Sanditon (Jane Austen’s unfinished last book) is so dreamy, I am praying for a chance at a second season. Please ITV/PBS give them another season.

    • M says...

      Yes, just yes!

      Wouldn’t he be an excellent Healthcliff (Wuthering Heights) with that brooding look and deep voice?!

    • Caraline says...

      Uh huh! With you, there! :)

  103. Megan says...

    Mikael Persbrandt! OMG he’s so gorgeous! Have you seen the TV show “Sex Education”? He’s covered in tattoos but he’s Swedish so he has that smiley wholesome Scandinavian vibe going on. I would date him in a heart beat!

  104. Sara says...

    My top crush will forever be Padma Lakshmi. Gorgeous, funny, intelligent, etc. Also, Paul Rudd. I just feel like he’ll never let me down, you know?

  105. Sarah says...

    Sam Heughan!

  106. David Chang. Also Seth Rogan. The episode of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner they did together was basically porn.

    • Samantha says...

      YES. i am drooling just thinking about it.

  107. Julie says...

    This post reminds me of how perfect and dashing Jeremy Northam was as Knightley in the Gwyneth Paltrow adaptation.

    So, crushes! Jason Mantzoukas is forever the only person my husband jokes that he’d be worried about if I met him, he’s so funny and sweet and dirty.

    Also Chris Evans because he’s the perfect man, Oscar Isaac because NNNGHHH, Ana De Armas is breathtaking, Henry Golding, and Michael B Jordan has the most perfect smile.

    • M says...

      Yes, Jeremy Northam was so sweet and charming! My favorite Knightley though is Johnny Lee Miller from the 2009 PBS movie.

  108. Bethany Suckrow says...

    Dev Patel, who has a couple of new movies coming soon. He was in ‘Lion’ a few years ago, which is such a moving film and he’s so talented in it–but also, he’s EXTREMELY HOT. The scenes where he has long hair make me weak in the knees.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      omg YES! dev patel in lion is what dreams are made of.

    • Ashley says...

      I’ve always thought he was a talented actor, but when I watched him in his episode of “Modern Love” I was like….OK WHO TOLD YOU YOU COULD?! Gorgeous!

    • Alex says...

      He was also so dreamy in Modern Love on amazon prime!

    • Zoe P says...

      Dude!!! I commented the same thing! I took note of him in Lion (his hair is INCREDIBLE) but that episode of Modern Love really cemented it for me. Love him.

    • Stacy says...

      YES!

  109. Kate says...

    Florence Pugh!!!

    • Ashley says...

      OH my gosh, that’s mine!! After Little Women I can’t get her out of my mind–she was immediately my answer when I read the title of this article

    Tom Hardy and most recently Claes Bang (played County Dracula in the recent BBC adaptation – Hes undead, hes not unreasonable! :-))

    You need to watch Song One. Johnny Flynn is absolutely wonderful in this film.

  113. Oh, so many! But lately it has been John Mulaney and Domhnall Gleeson. Tall, pale, and nerdy. Oh, and Hot Priest because he’s just the dreamiest.

      JOHN MULANEY FOR THE WIN!!!!!

    I have it bad for George MacKay.

    He seems gentle, intelligent and kind. And so, so handsome in an old-timey way.

    Help.

    • Allison says...

      You don’t need help. Lean into it.

    So into Lakeith Stanfield these days.

    • Katey says...

      I was just thinking the same thing. Lakeith Stanfield 😍

    • L says...

      YES. I think I named him the last time this topic came up on the blog and was so surprised no one was with me. So glad his career is going well and he’s getting the love! I had an instant spark for him on Atlanta – such an amazing show and I loved his weird character – and now he’s starring in rom-coms with Issa!

    • Laura D says...

      SAME.

    HARRY STYLES

    • J says...

      Amen, what a beautiful man

    • AG says...

      I love that you typed his name in CAPS AS IT SHOULD BE!

      I mean, I knew he was trouble when he walked in – Taylor

  117. Joanna Camp says...

    I have been following him for several years now. He is so handsome, real and sweet. I love his music.

  118. katie says...

    michael zegen (Joel- Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)- i can’t even explain why or what exactly (he’s not an obvious heartthrob and i know it!) but love him

    • celeste says...

      He’s so evil, I have the opposite reaction!
      I just finished “Maisel” – what should I watch now?

    • O says...

      I love Michael Zegen! He’s almost got this teddy bear vibe, imo.

    • Dana says...

      Hahahaha I feel the same way. I was like “Oh….hmmm…wow… is this what I’m into now?” I’m just going to roll with it.

      But Luke Kirby as Lenny Bruce gets the gold. And my crush is specifically on Luke as Lenny because he has to be Luke’s brand of hot with Lenny’s saltiness.
