Actors/Characters you have a crush on that other people wouldn't get

I have a running list. Current headliner is Jeff Daniels. Not your typical leading man, but for whatever reason when he's onscreen I just can't see anyone else.

This may or may not be instigated by anticipation for the upcoming season 2 of The Newsroom.

I think the last one was Eliza Dusku (I think that's her name) on Dollhouse. Her eyes are amazing.

If anyone doesn't get why you'd have a crush on Eliza Dushku, I don't think I want to know them.

Is that Anne of Green Gables?

I just watched that series again this past holiday after not seeing it in probably 25-30 years. I could understanding someone crushing on her.

I don't really understand the OP question though. What is the context? People we don't find attractive that we like anyway? People we find attractive that we assume other people don't?

It seemed, that during the running of that show, more people had crushes on the other girl (who was also in the recent show about the stranded sub...I'm having a bad memory day today LOL).

Dichen Lachman? She's quite interesting. Read her bio some time.

But I'm with you, Eliza's the hotsor.

I have a ridiculous crush on Cory Monteith, which is about the only thing tethering me to Glee at this point.

No, they thought that Dichen was a better actress, not that she was hotter than Eliza.

I assumed the latter.

I also had a crush on Marisa Tomei on A Different World. And she's still holding up!

My unconventional crush is Alex Borstein -- I've only seen her on-screen in various brief cameo roles she's done (never watched "MAD TV," etc.), but I've seen her live at a couple different "Family Guy"-related events.

Sierra, right? I don't think there's any question she's a better actress. Talk about a stunning performance.
