I stayed up 'til 3:30 am this morning watching The Count Of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel. I remember seeing it for the first time in the theater in 2002. I melted as soon as he walked on the screen. From then on, I was enthralled with Jim Caviezel and I've wanted to see all his movies. After he played Jesus in The Passion, I tried not to think of him in a yummy way. ha! But he is yummy!
Then last night while I watched The Count again, and I realized, I am in love with that character! It's not Jim Caviezel the person - it's The Count! He just melts me! I love it when he walks into the room with that long robe on. His hair is incredible - his eyes divinely blue. When he was clean-shaven at the end and looking more like the real Jim, I wanted The Count back. I kept replaying the scenes with him dressed as The Count over and over. And over. And over. I kept saying aloud, "he's so pretty."
Have you seen this movie? It's 99.9% squeaky clean. I think anyone would love it. It's a wonderful story of good vs. evil.
Anyway...just thought I'd share my renewed love for The Count and give you a little eye candy for the day. heehee
The way Jim normally looks is not too bad either, huh? This pic's from The Thin Red Line. I guess I love Jim for Jim too. But The Count has my heart. heehee
Hmmm...hope my husband doesn't check my blog today!
