We’ve been a fan of Ed Helms since we first saw him do improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC back in the day, and every lady we know holds a serious torch for the bespectacled funny guy. He’s handsome, charming, and a banjo-playing machine – the complete package, obvs. So when we caught up with Ed in the press room at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, we had to ask him what he thought about his heartthrob status. Turns out, all the lady attention makes him a wee bit tongue-tied.
“Really?” He asked incredulously, when we mentioned all our swooning gal pals. “I want all of their numbers.”
But then we, uh, made the mistake of calling Ed an “alternative heartthrob” (what can we say, we were nervous – it came out wrong!) and things got a little awkward. “I’ll try not to be insulted by the term ‘alternative heartthrob,'” he teased, adding that the lady admiration, “feels alternatively good.”
Whenever you want those numbers, let us know Ed! [Photo: GettyImages]
