Girls love romance. And we also love romantic comedies. Guys do too, but they’re less willing to admit to it. Probably because they know if they admit to actually loving all of that romance stuff, they might actually have to put in the same effort that as of now only exists in the movies. Hence, why women love romantic comedies so damn much.
The problem with living in Hollywood, is that sometimes you bump into your favorite actor at the gym or at Starbucks or out at a club or bar. You think you know them. I frequently say things like an enthusiastic, “Hello!” To which they reply a much less enthusiastic, “Hey.” I one time grabbed onto Leo DiCaprio’s arm and just gazed longingly into his eyes for what seemed like an eternity before he shook me loose. I definitely felt a connection though – I’m pretty sure he did too.
So anyway, I was out at (insert local hot spot here) the other night and ran into none other than the extremely swoon-worthy Zac Efron. He just happens to be coming out with a movie that all my girlfriends and I are going to see this weekend and that he looks totally hot in. So imagine my surprise when I see him in person and he’s wearing a green sweatshirt, baggy jeans and a green beanie (ew) and unfortunately like most actors in person, is really really short. He was quickly ushered to a back room so I didn’t have an opportunity to latch onto his arm, but part of me wishes he would have only existed to me in, The Lucky One. Then I could’ve continued to imagine that if I wore heels out on our date, he would still be taller than me.
I know a million girls would love to meet Zac Efron or their favorite actor/actress in person, but trust me, if these actors only exist to you the way they’re portrayed onscreen in your favorite movies, YOU’RE the lucky one. In Hollywood – ignorance really is bliss.
