Guys Really DO Like Normal Girls


Sometimes when people try to explain personalities based on certain life choices, like pizza topping, they are totally off base.

David Zinczenko’s article qualifies personalities by a list of pretty straightforward (and hot) celebs. Needless to say, I was pretty surprised by the answers these guys gave when asked which starlet they had the hots for. Sure, you could put the celebs into a category and try to analyze the guys via David’s perspective. But what I discovered was much, much more fascinating than what any guy could tell me about what a man’s celebrity crush reveals.

Based on my findings, guys like celebrities who are pretty damn normal. Yes, perhaps these girls are a bit hotter, a bit fitter and with a bit A LOT more money. But come on, Lacey Chabert, Michelle Trachtenberg, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, Carrie Underwood and Larissa Oleynik (aka Alex Mack)?

I know. I was astounded as well. Yes, these girls are all amazing actresses or singers, but for the most part all of them are (in many ways) a lot like you and I.

No guy named Lindsay or Jennifer Aniston or even Fergie. And even Natalie Portman, the biggest star the guys chose, went to Harvard and has an awesome sense of humor. Just check out the SNL sketch where she raps. That shit is funny—no hysterical—and one of the aforementioned guys reasons for totally loving her.

In his article, Zinczenko said that “Though the characters may change from time to time, guys often choose their celebrity crushes based on some deeper longing for what they want in women.” In the end a guy fantasizing about a “normal” celeb is good news for the ladies in their lives.

So, let them dream their little dreams. It’s you he’s taking to bed.
