In the life of a writer, although it's not really a necessity in one's writing profession, it's helpful to have someone whom you highly admire. Why? Because that person can be your inspiration, your burning torch, your staying-on power when you need it the most. That may be someone you know and who knows you personally. It may be a celebrity who doesn't even know your name. Or, it may be a fictional character whose story has deeply touched your heart.
For me, one of the people I deeply admire is an actor in Hollywood.
Yes, I've always been so attracted to one of Hollywood's best celebrities, Nicolas Cage. There are so many things about him that I adore.
These include his too-good-to-be-true-dream-guy qualities:
One: His Voice And His Words
When he speaks, it is as if I am mesmerized by his verbal prowess and his gentle voice. And since I love words so much, listening to him utter them is like listening to an angel's voice sharing lyric poetry.
Two: His Being Smart
He not only looks smart, but he actually has the brains to prove it.
Because of that, he is definitely irresistible even if some of the write-ups online about him says that he is not as young as he used to be. OK, so the years in his age added up a bit. But, well, he is still good looking and (as I've already mentioned) he is, definitely, smart.
What's good looks without brains anyway? That would merely be like a hollow coconut husk without its delicious and edible "flesh" known as an endosperm.
Three: His Gentle Manner
Nicolas Cage moves in gentle ways.
He is not quick to boast about worldly things that he has amassed because of his glitzy profession. He is like the type of guy who treats ladies with respect.
That's why, for me, he has this certain irresistible charm that, I bet, could immediately light up any room he would enter.
I just wish I would be his date. :)
