I don’t know when we agreed that Britain would have all of the hot celebrities, but apparently someone spit shook on it and it became law. For proof of this, just look at the gorgeous Douglas Booth, who plays Romeo alongside Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. The role of Romeo has been played by dozens of actors in the past and, in this modern adaptation of the Shakespearean classic, the world will fall in love with Romeo right along with Juliet. Because Douglas is certainly a sight for sore eyes. And, while that phrase always sounds like an insult whenever I hear someone say it, it’s apparently a really awesome thing to say about someone, which is why I’m saying it about Dougie. Do you think that we’re already on a nickname basis? I mean, I’ve called him, like, 6 kinds of good looking already so I think the least I deserve is the right to leave off a letter here and there.
Anyway, back to my musings about Douglas, because that was fun a few minutes ago, wasn’t it? He’s probably best recognized as Miley Cyrus’ boo in the movie LOL. In terms of where it fits in on the timeline of Miley’s career, it’s pre-VMAgate, but post-”hopping off the plane at LAX.” For Douglas, it was right in the middle of half-past cute and hot o’clock. I don’t know what that means exactly, but it really does give you a good idea of where he stands on the good looks spectrum. Or maybe it would help if I describe him as what would happen if someone stuck Chace Crawford’s and Zac Efron’s DNA in a test tube and shook it up to create a new person. That may not be an accurate scientific process, but that must have happened because he truly is a cross between the two guys. And he’s also got that accent thing going for himself, which always helps a person’s case.
Look, here he is, just staring into your soul and sending you sensitive brain waves dipped in gourmet chocolate that say, “go watch me in the newest version of Romeo and Juliet, beautiful.”
This one says, “Haha, you’re so funny, love! Let’s talk about you and me going to see my movie together.”
And what about this one? It’s more of an, “I’d be so sad if you didn’t go see me play Romeo in a dashing and romantic way. So, so sad.”
And, since I know that the last thing you would want to do is make him sad (despite how inexplicably handsome he is even while pouting), I can guess that I’ll be seeing you at the movies with a ticket to Romeo and Juliet in hand. You can learn all about the movie at its Facebook and Tumblr pages, and follow the movie’s Instagram and Twitter accounts. You know, for good measure.
Romeo and Juliet comes to U.S. theaters Friday October 11, 2013.
