Week Four – Working From Home My Favorite Brit Edition

Yes that’s right, I’m working from home (running out of work really) and I’ve decided NOT to focus on anything negative.  What?! You are wondering if this is really the Huntress and not some squeaky clean, Girl Scout Troop leader taking her place.  NO! It is not, I am still the Huntress and I have plenty of shit to talk about only…….*sigh* I’m getting kind of tired of being negative all the time (I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m running out of wine and have to go this weekend to stock up.)  In any case I was on the phone with my good friend Virginia and we got into a friendly debate over which actors we’d kidnap and hold for ransom.  She likes Leo DiCaprio and I prefer Brad Pitt, that kind of debate.  Then we began talking about foreign actors and I began telling her about my favorite Brits and my number one choice made her question our friendship.

But that’s okay, I question my friendships all the fucking time.   Anyway I say that because not only was she shocked at my pick, but she didn’t even know who he was.  That’s what made me think that I’d blog about my top five favorite British actors I’d LOVE to kidnap and hold for ransom.  So here I go…

#5 Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg

Mr. Pegg first came to my attention more than a decade ago when I was literally FORCED to watch a movie called Hot Fuzz.  Yes I say forced because I knew nothing of him or the movies he’d made up until I saw Hot Fuzz.  This film is one of my all-time favorites and that’s probably because of its ambiguous sarcasm.

Drunk Kid Hot Fuzz
This kind of sarcasm, I fucking love it!

Those subtle little mind fucks here and there, and how absolutely fabulous Simon Pegg is in these films.   He has another film about running called “Run Fat Boy Run” and that film made me his fan for life!

Yes, those are swimming trunks her’s trying to run in….lol

#4 Ewan McGregor

Nicole Kidman

What can I saw about Ewan? Other than, he’s a perfectly dreamy wonder of a man.  Yes you heard that right, I can’t quite remember when or where I saw Ewan McGregor on screen.  But he definitely caught my attention in the film Down With Love with Rene Zellweger.

And who can forget his performance in Birds of Prey? Okay if you haven’t seen it, you need to because although he plays a bad guy (a very bad guy) that’s how I like my men. Good and bad, both at the same time!

#3 Tom Hiddleston

Tom
I think he could be the next 007

Another sexy as hell Brit who can change his performance to suit the film’s needs, which in my book makes him a great actor.  I first saw him (no not in Thor/Avengers) but in a little known film called Only Lovers Left Alive with Tilda Swinton.  He was, to say the least AMAZING in this film.  He plays a vampire, and that’s all I’m going to say about that.  An intelligent, aristocratic, full of sex appeal vampire.  Something I didn’t find with Lestat, him being an emotional sucking vampire but, oh well.

Then of course, who could forget his performance as Loki the God of Mischief in the Avengers films? Seriously I don’t think they could have picked a better actor to play this part.  He too has an air of sarcastic ambiguity about him, and I absolutely love that! I’m sensing a pattern here….

Who doesn’t love a mischievous god? Even if it is in a fantasy life…

#2 Idris Elba

032720-idris-elba

Oh Mr. Elba, what can I say about thee?  Other than how I met him, and that was when I was out of work back in 2015 (for all of three months) and binge watching the BBC series Luther.  Love that show, and I’m so glad I watched all of the seasons (up until then) all at once.

Idis Elba

And my admiration for Mr. Elba only began to grow as I began to watch some of his movies, like The Mountain Between Us, and Turn It Up Charlie, both were as good as his portrayal of hardened detective John Luther, only he showed his tender loving side.  Which is a side I wouldn’t mind seeing…ahem….holding for ransom.

One tall glass of water that Mr. Elba is…..yep!

And now for my all time number one pick, for my favorite Brit I’d like to kidnap and hold for ransom…….

#1 Noel Fielding

Noel Fielding

Okay a lot of people wonder (especially here in the U.S) who the fuck is Noel Fielding?  Well plainly put, he’s a comedian and actor from England.  He was part of an ensemble cast of a show called The Mighty Boosh, something like Saturday Night Live only raunchier, because it’s the UK after all.  He’s also a judge on the Great British Bake-Off Show (yes I can see that your wondering wtf?) but he’s enchanting, and I’d love to kidnap him and hold him for ransom.

Noel Fielding #2

Honorable Mention – James McAvoy

James McAvoy
Because just look at him….grrrr

So there you have it, The Huntress’ top five favorite Brits I’d love to kidnap and hold for ransom.  My friend Virginia say’s I have a “type” but doesn’t exactly explain what that “type” is.

So I’m just going to keep wondering because I don’t like to put anyone/thing into a particular category.  Unless your an asshole, then your just a plain asshole and nothing you can do will change how I feel about you and your assholeness.

This is The Huntress, remember to wash your hands, stay safe and for god-sake STAY HOME!!

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. Well, at least two of your picture has people who were in recent Star Trek movies.

    Maybe I am weird, but I can’t think of any actresses that I am attracted to. Maybe I just don’t notice the actors when I watch a show or movie and mostly into the show. Maybe it’s because they don’t seem real to me because whenever I see them they are made up, produced, edited, and speaking lines that someone else wrote. I literally can’t think of one actress that I am attracted to. I didn’t watch TV yesterday, so maybe that is why.

    If I made a post about actresses I wanted to kidnap, I’m pretty sure the FBI might give me a call.

    Been working from home for more than 4 weeks. I kind of forgot who I work for anymore. Are they real people or is there a computer that generates emails for me to read? Who knows? Who cares? My commute is 15 seconds now.

    1. Oh Jason…..I think your turning…..cyberphonic, lol. It’s caused by cabin fever, and now your mindset is turning into electronic/cyber/virtual instead of reality. As an introvert, this is surprising I must say. Lol 😝

      1. I was just kind of kidding. I have a lot of video calls these days. I haven’t seen any of my coworkers in person for a month. I am going to have to figure out how to go to work to get a shipment from somewhere and shuffle it around between three people.

      2. I know you were, as was I. One needs to have a sense of humor now a days especially with this pandemic going on. I just wish I could have gotten my camera and stuff before all of this went down. I would be taking lots and lots of pictures os my cat….lol.

  2. I laughed out loud when I got to your #1 choice but, I’m not gonna lie, I wouldn’t mind hanging out with Noel Fielding even if my intentions might by slightly different from yours. And I’d like to hang with all the other guys on your list because they seem pretty cool too. Mainly I’d like to find out where he gets those amazing shirts.
    Although Simon Pegg, as you’ve shown, is quite a snappy dresser too. He also has a very funny memoir called Nerd Do Well. At least it’s mostly a memoir. A good part of it is taken up with a crazy story about a super spy named “Simon Pegg” and his robot assistant.

  3. Me mum was a Brit, but I am terrible at remembering the names of actors. I can recognize faces from a glance 20 years ago, but names leave the premises before the people do. I do like British humor.

  4. Fine choices! Or, at least the four I’ve heard of are fine choices. By the properties of the Law of Association and Inference, however, all must be fine choices!

    I was asked the other day who my “hall pass” was and it had been so long since I thought about that kind of thing I had forgotten what that meant. When explained to me I came to the sudden revelation that I hadn’t thought about the “hall pass” thing in a million years. Maybe twenty. I remember at the time it was Jennifer Love-Hewitt, I think. What’s she doing these days? Maybe it was Jenny McCarthy. I don’t really remember. It wasn’t anybody British.

    Consequently, I haven’t made a list of “Top Five Male British Celebrities I’d Like To Kidnap” in a very long time. Maybe never. I don’t remember.

    Tom Hiddleston would definitely be on it, though. I just like to pronounce his name. 😉

    1. I know right? HIDDLESTON…it just rolls of the tongue, lol.
      Gee, if I had to pick my hall pass, it would definitely be Brad Pitt, just because he seems like he could hold a good conversation. That’s important because what good is he if he’s great to look at but has the IQ of a tumbleweed? 🤣😂😁😝

  5. Your list is interesting. I never did understand the appeal of Tom Hiddleston. To each his own, right? Not familiar at all with your #1 and I think I saw Run Fat Boy Run a long time ago and if I remember correctly it was too stupid for me. Lol. Sorry. The others are quite good actors! You have now inspired me to create my own list. Will work on that later. It’s quite different from yours. 😉 Now you’ll have to do your list of American actors. 😀

  6. I would take any one of these in a heartbeat! We actually just watched Hot Fuzz for the first time last weekend and loved it–then we watched Shaun of the Dead as a follow-up–Simon Peg is awesome!
