... you can learn from:
Queer as Folk (1999)
Nathan: I'm still going out though, to The Village.
Dad: Not on school nights.
Nathan: And I'm not going to change, you know that, don't you? Cos it's not a phase, I'm not growing out of it. I'm going to be gay forever.
Dad: You've made up your mind, and it's obvious there's no stopping you. It's Helen I'm worried about, she's ten years old, she's a child. I don't want her head filled with notions.
Nathan: Like what?
Dad: As far as Helen is concerned, the anus is for shit. Got that?
God that conversation sure brings me back. Anyway awww I miss Charlie Hunnam's bum boy phase. That's when I fell for him, and that's who he'll always be for me, no matter how many tough guy ass-kicker roles he takes. As lousy and borderline homophobic as I thought Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen was I have to admit that I felt all of Hugh Grant's aggressive grab-handsing at Charlie, since that's how I was raised, QAF-like.
(PS all of the original UK QAF is on Amazon Prime.) Anyway a happy 40 to Charlie today! Check out our extensive archives on him, since this crush pre-dates this blog by half a decade and so we've been extolling his many virtues this entire time.
What's your favorite Charlie Hunnam performance?
