YOUNG woman has crush on grandpa Tommy Lee???


I don't believe it.

I'm only 35, and already I hear college women calling me "too old" to date. No way would one of them (Barb) go after a 60-something guy..... just doesn't make sense.

for me it's that he's a great actor and is the master of dead pan delivery - which I love..would I go so far as to say "he's hot" no...but being attracted to someone can be more than just looks...

That's true, but Texas Marshals don't have any money.
He's a poor slob like the rest of us. ;-)

Kelli Garner said in an interview that she really did have a crush on Tommy Lee Jones, and that she likes older men in general.

reply

Ahhh, so not only did the character "Barb" have a crush, but so too did the actress. Interesting.

reply

I went back and found the exact quote in case you were curious...

"I have a crush on Tommy Lee Jones' character, and it works for me because I secretly have an infatuation with older men. Sorry, Grandma! I love older men, I really do, there's something about them I just love."

reply

So when Barb's hugging the Marshall, it's no just acting. It's an actual crush of a young woman for a grandpa.

Ewww.

Hardly.

Well think about it,her character is a bit of a air head,with little in the way of disipline,and in comes this older experienced man,who is very disiplined,and seems to have his life mapped out day by day,to a young girl like barb,i can see whay she finds that attractive.

reply

Good point.

It's sort of the "opposites attract" phenomenon.

Perhaps its the case your just not attactive enough and by this i do not mean your looks.

reply

I'm not sure what she means by "daddy issues".

Maybe you should accept 18 year old girls (give or take) are always going to mystify you a bit? Lord knows I have.

electric- It actually IS quite common for younger women to be attracted to men 20 or more years older, esp. if it's an older guy who still looks good and has taken care of himself. 35 isn't "too old" to date women in their early 20's. I was 35 when I met the woman who'd eventually become my wife; she was 23 and was actually more ready to get serious than I was at the time. Maybe (and don't take this the wrong way) they're just using age as an excuse; it's probably something else.

And,FWIW, "ewww!" as a response to anything should be reserved for girls aged 12-17...OK maybe 18.

I had a serious problem when I was a teenager, because when my girlfriends started getting boyfriends I found boys my own age to be extremely
off-putting. So at 15 I was attracted to men of 35+. At 31, I am mostly attracted to men of about 40-45. I like macho men with life experience. :)

I also happen to find Tommy Lee Jones very, very sexy at 60+.

reply

Ewww.

He looks ready to fall over. I doubt he'd be able to "perform" as they say.

reply

I've got to tell you I love older men!Billy Bob Thornton,oh jeeez I love him!

Anyways 30 is too old for dating?I don't think so,You probably have that whole cougar thing going on for all I know.Have you seen Demi Moore?Shes in her 40s and she landed Ashton Kutcher,DAYUM!

Electric-
With that response, I think you just gave us a glimpse of your problem. Regardless of your age, you just don't seem very sharp. One of the things that make guys 35+ attractive is that they know better (or at least they should). In your case, you just don't.

Sorry, man.

Tommy Lee Jones has charisma. You must have lice or something, boy. No wonder women don't want to date a snivler such as you.

reply

Tommy Lee Jones is that awesome! I know female friends that have a crush on him, Richard Gere and Billy Bob Thornton, it isn't just about looks. Hell, Bruce Willis & Hugh Hefner are married to younger women.

I'm young and I think TLJ is very attractive. Not good looking, but so cool I can overlook that.

I guess it's like looking at clouds. You see one thing and I see another. Peace.

I believe it because he probably reminded her of her dad or something.
