This is Tom Cullen. Tom first blipped on my radar just last weekend when I watched “Weekend”. By the end of that movie I wanted to take him home to introduce him to my parents and wake up to those beautiful dark eyes and kiss those full pillowy lips. Yes, I have a crush. Tom’s IMDB page doesn’t actually have a lot of information about Tom on it. It does tell me that he was born on 17th July 1985, so he’s only 27 and probably wouldn’t come home with me. That of course has nothing to do with the fact that he doesn’t know who I am and lives on the other side of the planet.

I have no information about Tom’s sexuality but statistically he’s more likely to be straight which makes his performance in Weekend, for which he won the Best Actor award at the Nashville Film Festival, all the more surprising. For me it was one of the most convincing and unhesitating portrayals of a gay man that I’ve seen. For example, in the movie “Shelter” the older character of the gay couple, who has allegedly been out for years, really looked like he was not enjoying the kissing at all. It looked forced.

Anyway, back to Tom. He’s been photographed by Bruce Weber for Luomo Vogue and has appeared in some edgy fashion in “10” magazine, so you know he’d have nice clothes to leave on your bedroom floor. Sigh. He’s dreamy.
