My Weekend Crush

Few people stare better than Clea DuVall. Just straight ahead, unblinking. People always say a smile is your best accessory, but I rather prefer Clea when she doesn’t. Not that she doesn’t have a lovely smile, the way the lines around her mouth crinkle and stretch. But something about that slightly sullen, somewhat bemused stare just makes me weak. Clea’s been making me weak for ten years now, since she sulked into my heart as the surly Graham in “But I’m a Cheerleader.” That scene at the bar, as she leans against it in that black shirt and watches Natasha Lyonne dance with Julie Delpy. Deal sealed. But then, of course, I’ve always had a thing for the tomboys. And that she may also be fulfilling her tomboy tendencies with the lovely Camila Grey of Uh Huh Her, gosh, that’s making me weak all over again. Happy weekend, all.

p.s. I dare you to find a more gay and more kick-ass photo than this. Double-dog, even.

But Nina and Clementine are missing... then it would have been the gay-est of all time :)

Yawn...........

Rose said...

Ohh, that is one of my favorite pictures ever, mainly for the fact that is IS so incredibly gay. Great choice!

Additionally, Due to the strange lack of anything Tegan and Sara on this blog I must ask, Dorothy, are you not a fan of the Tegan and Sara?

God, I love her! I was so excited when I saw her on heroes, she's just great in everything. and it's true, her stare IS great!

is that the artist formerly known as Shane, first from left to right on the last picture? the horror.

Nice...but,I was beginning to think you'd gone AWOL.

Fab! She's a wonderful choice.

eskadi said...

and where was this one taken? :) you rock

alphafemme said...

totally with you on the sullen thing. totally makes my heart flutter.

also, clea and camila? I'm praying to the gay gods that it is everything it looks like, and more.

That picture captures so much hotness I'm curious how it's even allowed to put up on the internet!
I love Tegan and Sara.

the blonde dyke said...

yes yes yes yes

mmm bring on the tomboys, snarker.

Carol said...

Love Clea. Best part of Heroes, IMO.

I have this vision - okay, fantasy, if you like - of seeing Clea play Michelle Forbes younger sister in something. They are so meant to be related.

(No. this is not a fantasy of porn "sisters" that proceed to make out. I just want them in a story where they can both be sullen and surly and do random kick-ass things together.)

Please, Santa.

PS Until Christmas comes, Ms. Snarker, could you maybe feature Michelle Forbes too? She's in "True Blood" this season. That's..topical enuf, right? ;)

Ms Snarker, you have been brilliant this week. First Watts, then the Maddow herself, a naked Mary Louise Parker, and now Clea with a bit of Uh Huh Her and Tegan and Sara tossed in? You are, as always, unmatchable.

@Rose

I happened to wonder the same thing. No T&S? Are you not into the modern-mainstream side of all things gay?

Katja said...

I'm completely fallen in love with that picture.

wauw!! great picture.. but who is the girl with the hat?

Lezlie Mac said...

The hat is Linda Perry.

Nice gayest pic ever indeed.
Didn't know Misses Duvall & Grey were an item, but they look very shane today.

thank you.

saw her at a Cat Power concert in LA at the height of my obsession (omg!) about 9 years ago now. Loved her when I was in my early twenties, but she hasn't done anything good since But I'm a Cheerleader.

man, I wish I could find that photo I used to have of Clea and the band The Need on bmx bikes and eating ice cream cones. You could have added to your cute girls on bikes post!
