Robin my heart. Get it? Like robbing, but ROBIN. If you don't, go watch Batman and pretend to laugh.
13 years ago, I fell in love. His name was Cameron- a new student at Padua High who was so awkward and dorky, you cringed every time words came out of his mouth.
I soon came to learn that Cameron, a character in one of my all-time favorite movies-10 Things I Hate About You, was Joseph Gordon-Levitt in real life.
Yes, I know JGL is sought after by every straight female over the age of 14, but Joe is unlike many other common celeb crushes out there. To me, Joe has always been my "nerdy celeb crush" because he isn't the obvious hot that we see in other famous men. Take Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds for example. They're uber manly, muscular and the word TESTOSTERONE is written on their foreheads. Joe, on the other hand, always plays the nerdy, shy guy who gives me hope that I can attain someone like him in real life.
Before I put up the extremely hot pictures of Joe from his GQ shoot, I'm going to take you all back and give you a reminder of what he was like pre-heartthrob era:
Don't lie to yourself, girls. I know I'm not the only one who would blow young Joe off if he came up to me on the street or asked for my number at a bar.
Thankfully, he has evolved into pleasure material that we all now enjoy:
Moral of the story: BE NICE TO THE NERDY GUYS.
You never know who they may grow up to be. <3
