Just A Lil’ Crush
Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I have the smallest of crushes on a certain actor. And with good reason – he’s handsome, ripped and has the sexiest voice on the planet. But, you know, beauty is only skin deep and the cutest guy ever is just a cute guy unless there’s more to him than looks.
Meet Cliff Simon. Cute, huh? This guy has been everywhere and done just about everything. Seriously. As a teen he was a gymnast and Olympic-standard swimmer. He’s been a lifeguard, a rescue scuba diver, and windsurfing and water-skiing teacher (something of a water baby, heh). He trained as an acrobat and performed all over the world, including a year at the Moulin Rouge. And he’s used those good looks to the max as a model in ramp, print and television commercials.
So far, so shallow? Perhaps, but there’s more to Cliff than performing for a camera. He’s an activist with Ocean Minded and sponsor for KarmaRescue (he used to foster, but recently adopted a dog on a full-time basis). Yeah, cute AND an animal lover – are you on-board yet?
Fine. You guy are such hard work!
But I can give you more, because Cliff is on Twitter. And he chats to his fans. He’s all the maturity of a 12 year old, but that’s precisely one of the reasons those fans love him. Nothing will snap you out of a funk like one of his goofy memes. Bad day? This guy will give you a hug, a pep talk and make you feel top of the world.
And he knows his fans. Yes, really. Guess who got an unprompted birthday wish? This girl (and no, I’ve not gotten over that even if it was three months ago). He’s incredibly generous, has a wicked sense of humour and is generally an all-round nice guy. Even if all the roles he gets are bad ones.
So yes, I have a little crush, but honestly don’t I have some pretty good reasons? Oh, fine, have him without a shirt. Shallow lot 😛
