The Exact Moment Our Admiration with These 5 Celebrities Transformed Into Shameful Lust

Amy Poehler


I’ve always been fond Amy Poehler, of course. She’s likable, and adorable, and funny, and owns her sh*t. I’m not sure when it happened, though, but somewhere along the way I began to feel very attracted to Poe … no, I remember exactly when it happened.


What? Don’t blame me for being persuaded so easily. I am of the lesser sex.

Tina Fey


Likewise, I won’t deny being attracted to Tina Fey’s snark and wit on Saturday Night Live, but it was a different kind of attraction, different from the kind of attraction I might have felt after she appeared in the Vanity Fair Women of Comedy issue.


The librarian thing didn’t hurt, either. I’m sorry! I’m weak.


Keri Russell


I am not ashamed to admit that I’ve seen Felicity’s entire run. Twice. I even liked the weird, sci-fi episodes tacked on after the true finale. But Kerri Russell always struck me as porcelain. She’s beautiful in a way that’s meant to be admired, not in a sexy way, but like art. You’d have thought it was the Vanity Fair photoshoot a few years ago that might have changed my perception.


Nope. That wasn’t it. This was it.



Bad. Ass.

Lauren Cohan

I didn’t really give Lauren Cohan a second look when she debuted in the second season of The Walking Dead. She seemed sweet, but not particularly sexy. Was it the riot gear sequence in The Walking Dead that changed my perception?


No. But it certainly helped. Was it the photoshoot tour she went on after season three?


Not exactly, although that didn’t hurt, either. The clincher? Hearing her natural accent for the first time.

Alison Brie

Sweet Annie Edison. She was too young, too Type A, too prim, too proper in the beginning of Community and too door-matty in the beginning of Mad Men to consider particularly sexy.


Then she did the Complex photoshoot.


But that wasn’t the clincher. The clincher was this paragraph she wrote about her college experiences for

Exploring my newfound sexuality, there was, of course, the girl-on-girl action, the crazy threesome with the afros and whips, and the surreal ‘shrooms experience where I thought the tree was fondling me but it turned out to be my creepy male roommate with calluses on his hands… gross. You get the picture. I developed this (possibly misplaced) sexual pride, based solely on the quantity of penetrations of my vagina… and not necessarily the quality of the acts therein.

…. and click.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    The best thing about Tina and Amy? They look like normal women. They can get all dolled up and ha-cha-cha with the best of them but they are not considered beautiful, just attractive normal women with smarts and funnies. They are my role models, even though I'm a generation older than the both of them. I like to think that young girls could look to them as ideals rather than random Kardashians or Mileys vagina.

  • Robert Sanchez III

    Amy poehler I don't find attractive really but she seems so fun to hang out with I could see falling for her after being around her for a while. Alison Brie on the other hand is so goddam sexy i can't even handle it and that quote you had on there gave me palpitations.

  • Uriah_Creep

    The correct answer for Lauren Cohan, of course, is when she played
    Vivian Volkoff during Season 3 of Chuck. Also, there is nothing shameful about my lust for any of these ladies.

  • duckandcover

    You would've heard Lauren Cohan's natural accent if you'd watch Supernatural seasons 2 and 3.

  • Zoo

    I hate this article lol, I'm sorry I know it's a joke but sexy photoshoots are not why these women are cool or good looking.

  • BlackRabbit

    Between your "shame" here and your "Pratt-fall" in a previous're a mixed up little sundae, aren't you Dustin?

  • e jerry powell

    Don't forget Sweaty McConaughey Lawn Mower Man...

  • Monica

    This sentence pleases me.

  • Guest


  • Khitos

    Same here with all of them except Poehler ;) With the exception that I really liked all of them at first glance.

  • Bunk in, I am.

    But, wait, Dustin, is this tempting the fates by posting the same day the news [sic] of the Patton/Thicke split started at the VMAs? Should you be revealing this to the Interwebs? I fine, you're famous and all now too.

  • Dumily

    I really love a lot of what Tina Fey does, but I'm having a harder and harder time staying in love with her. I just think if we were friends in real life she would tell me to stop being so slutty, and that's a major boner killer.

  • Dumily

    Oh, and when (not "if") you do the male version of this, can you include the scene where Stringer Bell talks about copies being elastic products? Good looking murderous drug dealer? No thanks. Good looking murderous drug dealer who knows econ? I can make that work.

    Edit - Also Martin Starr's guest spot on the second season of "New Girl." No one should feel that way about Bill Haverchuck.

  • amylu

    (I always felt that way about Bill Haverchuck!)

  • VonnegutSlut

    I started feeling "that way" about Bill Haverchuck after I fell in love with Party Down.

    I'll talk "hard sci-fi" with him any ol' day of the week, if ya know what I mean.

  • Dumily

    I was too all about druggy, disaffected Ben Wyatt to get into Roman, but in retrospect, I can see it. Also, if you haven't yet, see "Save the Date." Everyone should feel like that for Bill Haverchuck after that movie.

  • BendinIntheWind


  • JayWantsACat

    Lauren CohAn.

  • Mrs. Julien

    His mother thanks you, his father thanks you, his sister thanks you, and he thanks you.

  • RobynRobotron

    Now I really want to watch Yankee Doodle Dandy.

  • lurker_erin

    Now, do a male version, please!

  • e jerry powell

    He has, in just the last two weeks.
    McConaughey, Rudd, Pratt, Dominic Cooper...

  • emmalita

    We are legion! And we are insatiable!

  • Allijo

    And Cumberbatch better be on the list.

  • He'll be the headliner for the upcoming Pajiba article on herpetophilia. It's mostly people from 'V', a Sleestak or two, and Cumberbatch.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    He was my first thought when I saw the headline. And it was the scarf toss, btw.

  • Shit, "Keri Russell nude" is all over my AOL 500 Free Hours CD search history from 1998

  • BlackRabbit

    You wore out your copy of "Eight Days A Week"?

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    God, that movie introduced me to puberty.

  • Tinkerville

    Amy Poehler is more one of those people I really want to get drunk with and ask her for life advice and get hilarious motivational pep talks from. Lauren Cohen, however, is tops on my lady love list.
