Roger Hailes thinks all straight guys get man crushes, whether or not they want to admit it. Luckily, he was comfortable enough with his masculinity to reveal the many men of Hollywood who infatuate him.
“My first man crush had to be Burt Reynolds in Cannonball Run,” Roger says about the mustachioed actor. “He just embodies masculinity. You look at him on TV and you can almost smell him.”
So what constitutes a man crush? Roger explains that it’s a kind of non-romantic idolization. “It’s usually achievement-based crushes,” he says. “You like their life so much.”
Another one of Roger’s crushes is Channing Tatum. “I think he’s hot, he says. “And if you’re a straight dude and you can’t admit that Channing Tatum’s hot, you’re so worried about being gay that you ARE gay.”
There’s always something about a bad boy, and it’s the same with man crushes. Roger says his bad boy crush is Kevin Federline, much to Ali’s dismay. “He just hustled the whole world!” Roger says about Kevin’s relationship with Britney Spears. “Who’s this guy dating the hottest pop star at the time?”
