My Top Five

My husband routinely talks about movie stars who are in his Top Five. We got the idea from a "Friends" episode when Ross has a top 5 (or 10) list of movie stars but he takes Isabella Rosellini off, only to bump into her later at the coffee shop. Anyway, Rey's top 5 list changes occasionally based on new interests. The current list goes like this.

1. Mariah Carey
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Drew Barrymore
4. Halle Berry
5. Fergie-from the Black Eyed Peas

The other night we were at dinner with friends and Rey mentioned that Fergie was on his Top 5 List. He also said that the Top 5 list is a list of rich famous women who he would leave me for if they asked.

I said, "Wait a minute! I didn't know you would leave me for these women! I don't have a Top 5 List."

So I felt compelled to make a Top 5 List myself. Only that when I went to write my list I couldn't think of anyone. Worse yet I kept thinking of White actors and I felt politically incorrect, being Hispanic and all. So I thought about it real hard and even did a search on Google for the Sexiest Men of 2004 and 2005 and I was reminded of what men I find really handsome. I came up with my list and e-mailed them to Rey's Blackberry.

1. Gabriel Garcia Bernal
2. Olivier Martinez
3. Johnny Depp
4. Keanu Reeves
5. Nicholas Gonzalez

Rey responded, "This can't be your Top 5 List. I don't know any of these people except Johnny Depp and Keanu Reeves."

"These are actors!"

"They aren't well known actors and the Top 5 List has to be made of famous actors who are rich and who you would leave me for."

This is my list so I can put whomever I want on it! He still doesn't agree but I'm very happy with my list. Now that I have my own list I feel a lot better! Yes, my husband and I have deep meaningful conversations! :)

You forgot Antonio Banderas circa 1989. Ay Papi.

You know, Antonio Banderas was cute back in the old days when he first came on the Hollywood scene. Actually he was cuter in his Almodovar days but I don't know what happened to him.

I forgot someone else! Chris Noth aka "BIG" from Sex and the City. I've heard he's a dog in real life but I love him anyway.
