I’m pretty sure that all the french men appear in films together, which makes it even more amazing! Plus, when they’re on dvd, you can watch them over and over again, sipping your gin and tonic whilst in your silk dressing gown.
I don’t know what it is about them, they’re just so mightily desirable. I think its probably the way they speak and their winning smiles..
11 of my favourite talented black men are (in alphabetical order):
Musician, Lead Singer from TV On The Radio.
Actor, plays ‘Moss’ in The IT Crowd, also in Darkplace.
Actor, plays ‘Saffie’s’ husband in Absolutely Fabulous, also in East-Enders.
Musician, aka Andre 3000 from Outkast.
Musician, aka Lightspeed Champion.
Musicians, aka The Mitchell Brothers.
Musician, lead singer from Bloc Party.
Actor, was in that ‘A Patch of Blue‘ movie that I was trying to get Chiara and Caitlin to buy the novelisation of from my bookshop.
Actor, played ‘Milky’ in This Is England.
Which is your favourite from these? Is there anyone I missed?
By the way, is it OK to objectify black men? Am I being racist if i objectify a black man? Am I being racist calling them ‘black’ rather than ‘coloured’ or ‘Negro’ or ‘of African decendency’ or that word, that-if-you-say-it-around-a-black-person-you-should-most-definitely-get-shot? Am I being racist not including a Caucasian, Asian or otherwise? Am I being sexist and racist not including a black woman? Am I paranoid? Like hell I am.
Paolo Nutini, need I say more?
Everyone has probably noticed that I don’t mind calling other men attractive, so what?
Anyway, I just wanted to showcase three of my favourites:
First: Daniel Brühl; the amazing German/Spanish actor who has notably been in Goodbye Lenin!, The Edukators and Jeux Noel. Born “Daniel César Martín Brühl González Domingo” (no joke), he is so wonderful and sensitive and marvelous and good at acting and just down-right attractive.
Second on the list is j0ames, the very special, most-definitely-under-18-year-old, youtube vlogger.
He does after all, have a spine-tingling-ly Brittish accent. Here is his first vlog for your viewing pleasure, a short note though, it does go for nearly ten and a half minutes (every second worth it), so be sure to get yourself comfortable.

If you’re still not satisfied, there is the actor Gael García Bernal (Motorcycle Diaries, Science of Sleep, Babel) who speaks French, Italian, Spanish and some Portuguese not to mention is entirely charming. I mean, who wouldn’t go for someone in a cat or bear for that matter suit singing a cover of The Velvet Underground’s After Hours with different lyrics?
So there you are, what wonderful people those men are, I’m sure.
