If you’ve never seen Les Misérables in stage-form, screen form or sang any of the songs with your 9th grade chorus and overall have led a pretty terrible life, avoid this post. There are spoilers ahead..
So I saw Les Misérables last night. I could gush on and on about its perfection and how Hugh Jackman deserves all the awards and how I wish they’d changed the script so that Fantine didn’t die so early on so we could have heard MUCH MUCH MORE of Anne Hathaway and how during one of her moments (my sobbing during “I had a Dream” probably) I had an epiphany that went something like this:
I could go on and on. But I won’t. Because this is That’s Normal and while it’s, of course, normal to like good art and great films and marry a straight guy who saw Les Mis 5 times on Broadway, it’s also normal to talk about the more important things:
Like the hot guys we see in the film.
Most of you are going ON and ON and ON about Eddie Redmayne and yes, I can see the appeal. There’s the amazing voice, the freckled skin and the scene with Empty Chairs at Empty Tables that KILLS all the people with souls in the audience, but I’m going to throw you for a loop & draw your attention to Aaron Tveit. Yep, I’m talking about Trip van der bilt from Gossip Girl. And here are a few reasons why:
This look at the NY Premiere:
His curls stealing the show in scenes with Enjolras (his character) and Marius:
The time he wore hipster glasses and played James Franco’s lover in some movie:
Because tumblr is now full of people making desktop backgrounds like this:
He can sing:
(sorry- no leaks from the film yet. BOO)
So to you, Aaron Tveit… we raise up a glas– err barricade… and wave our red flag for how beautifully you stood in the background with your strong jaw, fabulous hair and gorgeous voice, and how bravely you died, dangling from that window. You left your chair before we could really know you. We could have used more of your songs, more of your revolutionary spirit, more “Vive La France, Vive La Révolution” & all around more time to forget about that one time you cheated on your (tv) wife with Serena van der Woodsen.
Vive la crush on Aaron Tveit!!!
PS: I’m also 97% positive he’s STRAIGHT.
