Jane Austen's Men in Tights

Okay, maybe it’s more like fitted pants tucked into riding boots, with white ruffled shirts and velvet waistcoats. It’s a sunny Thursday evening, hence, I thought it might be fun to celebrate hottt actors in Jane Austen period pieces.  Swoon!

Firstly, we have Colin Firth as the ONLY Mr. Darcy.  I said it.  I’m sorry nothing comes close to the BBC mega-series Pride & Prejudice.  Sure there’s a remake with Kiera Knightly but who’s kidding who?  She’s not Natalie Portman.  Anyhoo, I acknowledge that you will be trading a few hours of your life to watch this series but it’s definitely worth it.  SPOILER ALERT:  You watch as Elizabeth Bennett has disdain for the arrogant and wealthy Mr. Darcy but then grows to love him because of his estate in Pemberley…haha.  I mean, his appreciation and love for her.  He also looks great wet after swimming in a pond.

The look of love: Mr. Darcy admiring Elizabeth as she plays the piano.

Next up is the incomparable James McAvoy.  Not gonna lie.  I have ownership issues with James.  He’s great in everything and he’s Scottish.  Boys are so much cuter when you can barely understand them. He is break your heart awesome with Anne Hathaway in Becoming Jane.  Get ready to go through a tissue box from sob-sob-sobbing.  Perhaps stop the dvd 75% through for a happy ending.  Hrmm, I will try this next time.  Or just pause on a scene where James is looking particularly fine.  (Writing down both good ideas)

Are you tired James McAvoy? Because you've been running through my mind all day.

And to appease your Jane Austen addiction, try BBC’s The Buccaneers or Sense and Sensibility with Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson.  For a more authentic experience, try reading the books.  Quite lovely.
