Moving on to the seventies, even though she was about ten thousand times my age as a kid I did always have a thing for Betty Garrett (http://l.yimg.com/l/im_siggXfIn_2nhHFkpb8j5KYVjDg---y626/tv/us/img/site/80/72/0000078072_20110610173218.jpg), aka Laverne and Shirley's landlady.
And when every teenage boy in America was lusting after Valerie Bertenelli on "One Day At A Time" I was focusing on the woman who played her mom, Bonnie Franklin. (http://www.sitcomsonline.com/photopost/data/722/bf2.JPG) Hell I thought Mackenzie Phillips looked better than Valerie.
I could have listed my crushes on Maggie Gyllenhaal or Adele Adkins, but that's not me being weird, it's the rest of the world being weird:).

Robert Carmichael? Back when he was starring in Hamish Macbeth (mid 90s), my wife would have left me for him in a hot second. Most of our friends of the female hetero and male homo variety agreed with her. (By which I mean that they also found him hot, not that they would leave me for him... although I suspect they probably would have. Bastards.)

(on the right in this photo) He's 57, so there. Although, I'm friends with a couple teenage girls on Twitter who ADORE him - and who HATE Justin Bieber. hahaha

I was amiably chatting with an "older fella" in a bar once wondering if it would go somewhere, when out of nowhere he blurted something about "those goddamn gays" (and this was an out-of-left-field remark during a conversation about real estate or something.)

Valerie Harper in Season 1 was kind of schlumpy. After that, she slimmed down and looked much better (MTM was always too skinny for my tastes), so they tried rewriting the character as someone who used to be dumpy but was now good looking but still thinks she's dumpy. That was difficult to characterize for a supporting character, and Rhoda ended up being spun off into her own show, anyway.

I agree. They're way hot.
Until you picture them in your bed, a come hither gleam in their eyes, their soggy, comma-like half-erect wrinkly dicks with the ballsack down to the knees pitifully poking their greyish heads out of the sheets and then it's straight back into ewwww territory.

I might be thinking too much about these things. Especially for a straight guy.

That's not so weird; Alfred Molina is an indisputably handsome guy, he's just doughy and he carries the weight in his face. But he's got charisma to burn.

Mine though, is this: I first saw Blythe Danner in Meet the Parents and then Meet the Fockers. It was in the latter film that I first really noticed how sexy she was. So I watched Prince of Tides, which features a much younger Danner. Turns out I prefer the older one. Even now, at age 69, I'd rather have the current Blythe Danner than the Tides-era one.
