Crush Course1 of 11
By Denise Wolfe
Baffled by something your guy said, something he didn't say, something he did, something he didn't do? You could read your tea leaves, consult the I Ching, or pluck a hair from his head to scour his DNA. Or …you can read on, while we explain exactly what his celebrity crush means for him, and for you.
Emma Watson2 of 11
Just what aspect of Emma Watson appeals to him most? Harry Potter's Hermione, super-smart yet bossy? Her newfound maturity, as she blossoms from tousle-haired to sultry? Or her net worth, since Guinness Book of World Records dubbed her Highest Grossing Actress of the 2000s? Could be a dash of them all. Sounds like your guy wouldn't mind being taken care of. Brandish a wand and your very best British accent, and threaten to transform him into a toad if he doesn't find you every bit as enchanting as Watson.
Jennifer Lawrence3 of 11
Sure, he might be a fan of her superb acting. But it's more likely that he's fallen for her goofy charm and I'll-say-anything attitude. Who else would discuss butt plugs with Conan or diarrhea with David Letterman? Your guy values personality as well as beauty, and knows that a good fart joke goes a long, long way. Go ahead—relax around him and be yourself.
Rihanna4 of 11
If his crush is Rihanna, your guy likes surprises. Long hair or short, curly or straight? She's been brunette, raven-haired, redhead and blonde. He clearly craves a woman who will keep him guessing. That she's not afraid to rock a G-string monokini—as she did on a recent trip to Brazil—probably doesn't take away from his attraction to this Barbados babe.
Kat Dennings5 of 11
With her dark hair, pale skin, pouty red lips and impressive bosom, Kat Dennings is a classic beauty …until she opens her mouth. The minute she speaks, her snarky, salty sarcasm shines through. As one half of 2 Broke Girls, she plays a wisecracking waitress. Your guy fantasizes that he alone can coax Denning's soft, emotional center out from her tough-talking exterior, that he's the one to save her from a life of grime. Crack some gum, play along, and pray you get a decent tip.
Scarlett Johansson6 of 11
How many women are so sexy that their voices alone make men melt? Ms. Johansson thrills as computer operating system "Samantha" in Her, and we don't even get a peek of her luscious breasts, succulent lips or curvaceous bottom. Your guy wants a balance between escapades and sexcapades, and he's as attracted by vivacity and self-confidence as by sex appeal. Channel your Inner Her to capture and keep his attention.
Zoe Saldana7 of 11
Even as a blue humanoid Na'vi in Avatar, Zoe Saldana managed to be both gorgeous and exotic. She inflamed Trekkies as Uhura in the reboot, and she calls herself "a sci-fi geek who just happens to dress nice." Which means that your guy, no matter how closeted, is really a dweeb—but a dweeb with darned good taste. If you don't mind donning blue body paint, dressing as Princess Leia, or stroking his Spider-Man ego, you're in for a treat. And he'll be around for the long haul—can you say "sequel"?
Kerry Washington8 of 11
Kerry Washington spent years as a screen wife (Ray, Django Unchained) and journeyman actress before becoming an overnight sensation in television's Scandal. As Olivia Pope, Washington plays smart, sexy, successful, clever and quick. Your guy falls for her heart-stopping beauty; you adore her fabulous wardrobe. Thankfully, he's not afraid of a little drama in his life.
Kate Upton9 of 11
Three words: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. A crush on Upton means he rarely sees beyond a sublime body, and he doesn't mind being just one of the adoring hordes. Sure, she has a down-to-earth appeal that makes men think they might actually have a chance with her. But that's precisely the problem: Your guy will always think of her as the one that got away. Who needs that kind of pressure?
Zooey Deschanel10 of 11
You think we're going to discuss the adorkability of Zooey Deschanel, and admittedly she's cutesy-as-a-button, gawky and endearing as New Girl's Jess. But your guy sees beyond the vintage clothes, the boopsy voice and the ukulele. He realizes that Deschanel is both star and producer of her own show, meaning she's powerful. "I want to be a f--king feminist and wear a f--king Peter Pan collar," she declares. "So f--king what?" And because he recognizes and responds to Deschanel's obvious passion, he's now ready for you.
Rita Hayworth11 of 11
Who needs Technicolor when you're radiant in black-and-white? Rita Hayworth is a classic. In marrying third husband Prince Aly Khan, she became Hollywood royalty long before Grace Kelly ever met Prince Rainier. Your guy admires Hayworth's dancer's grace, her on-screen sizzle and the way she filled out a strapless gown. He doesn't care what others think, and he appreciates a sexually vibrant woman. Strut your stuff and give as good as you get. Don't worry—he can handle it.
