00:05
Does David Bowie count?
00:06
Well, Patrick Swayze is my biggest cinematic crush.
00:09
I like them in different ways.
00:11
I think that there's a thread that
00:12
follows through there,
00:13
but I haven't found it yet.
00:15
But Patrick Swayze is like,
00:17
when I first discovered like,
00:19
whoa that guy is hot.
00:21
You know what I mean?
00:22
What is he doing?
00:23
The little finger, and the whole thing.
00:25
I mean, I just
00:26
He's so uh.
00:27
Like just gorgeous.
00:29
With that black leather jacket,
00:30
and his black jeans.
00:31
And he's like that little smile.
00:33
He's just misunderstood.
00:35
Ah, God it kills me now.
00:36
Even when I see it now,

You know, he's just so so like sexy.
00:51
My favorite love story.
00:53
No, I won't do Dirty Dancing.
00:55
I would say probably Wall-E.
00:59
It's an amazing love story.
01:00
Wall-E and Eva.
01:01
Oh, when his lights go out,
01:03
and oh my God, when he gets rebooted.
01:05
I just about died.
01:07
But he comes back.
01:09
It makes me cry just thinking about it.
01:11
A movie just makes me cry.
01:12
I'm also really hormonal,
01:14
so you know.
01:15
I'll probably cry at anything.
01:16
But yeah, yeah.
01:18
Oh.
