Michael and Tom: A Year of Cuteness!!! [Jan. 1st, 2010|05:25 pm]
[Tags|, ]


I ended this year as I began it: completely smitten with my OTP! It was hard to narrow down a year of cute moments & I had to leave out a few! But here's my top ten.

10) Tom tells sheep jokes!
Serinda Swan (who plays Zatanna): "...he was lovely to work with and was a complete gentleman (just don’t ask him to tell you any sheep jokes!)"

I want to hear a sheep joke! *imagines*
Tom: "Did you hear about the foul-mouthed ram? He kept saying "Fuck ewe!"

9) Big Screen Michael
Michael made two movies in 2009, slated for release in 2010. One is based on a prestigious book and features a host of Oscar winners and nominees ("Father of Invention" with Kevin Spacey, Virginia Madsen, Heather Graham.) Is it wrong that I'm looking forward to "Brothers Justice" more, in which Michael plays cowboy with Bradley Cooper? Look how cute!!!

8) Tom turns actors into fangirls
In 2009, Wonder Twin Allison Scagliotti continued the tradition of lady guest stars sneaking into Tom's arms for a cuddly photo op. Can you blame her?

7) Michael discovers twitter
I've checked out a few celebs on twitter - it's been rather revealing. Some have disappointed me. There's a few I'd like to defriend but worry about hurting feelings since one of the reveals of twitter? Some celebs are extremely sensitive.

But Michael on twitter has been a treat. He doesn't post all the time - just once or twice a week, enough to keep things interesting. No surprise that he's funny and unashamed of his fanboy ways. He also seems sweet & grounded - lots of tweets about family & friends. He's never risen to the bait of fans insulting him for leaving SV; instead, he changes the topic to music & movies.

In short, he's everything I hoped he would be. Most recent tweet: "Happy New Year everyone.May all your dreams come true this year. Now let's go see some Air Supply and have a fruity drink.Rock On! rosenbaum." Rock on yourself, baby!

6) Tom gets frightened!
In a Newsarama interview, Cassidy Freeman (Tess) tells a story from the set of "Rabid": "I did that scene with Lois and Clark in the hospital, and we did the first take, and I had to be all zombi-rific...I really just had to decide to go for it. There is really no half way to do a zombie. And you kind of pull from your knowledge of all the zombie movies and whatnot. And I did the first take and after Jordan Hawley yelled, 'cut' Tom looked at me and said, 'I don't want to do this scene anymore!' He was really scared. [laughs] He's a wuss."

*cuddles frightened Tommy*

5) Michael talks about undressing Tom!
At Super-Tiki Con in July, after answering a question about voice-overs, Michael decides Tom has been absent from the conversation long enough and starts talking about him with Sam Witwer.

Michael: "Sam, how do you like working with Tom Welling?"
Sam: "He's really tall!"
Michael: "Is he nice?"
Sam: "Nice and tall! He's a great guy. You know him. You're buddies with him!"
Michael: "I know I know him!"
Sam: "Seven years!"

A bit more...

Sam: "Everyone was really nice. Tom was really, really cool."
Michael: "He's really easygoing."
Sam: "Yeah, he chills,"

Aw! But better was yet to come. After re-telling the story of Tom's script prank, Michael explained how he took his revenge. "I've gotten him back. I think I've pants-ed him a couple of times!" VIDEO PLEASE!

(So Michael, how big is Tom's....)

(As always, Michael got high props from fans at this Con. My favourite mention: "I was at the Screaming Tiki Con in Cleveland today and was so impressed with Superman celebs Michael Rosenbaum, Helen Slater, & Sam Witwer. All three were really nice to the fans (young and old alike). For example, Rosenbaum would not take any money for a pic from a recent Iraqi War vet.") Link

4) Tom has a giggle with his leading ladies
Hoisting a table with Erica!

Sharing a smile with Allison!

Ass shot!

3) Michael throws the opening pitch for the Mets!
And looks damn hot doing it!

2) Tom thrills a fangirl
Exciting enough that Mr. Reclusive came out of hiding for ComicCon...he also proves that he has a great sense of humour AND comic timing in this very sweet clip!

1) And the cutest moment of the year - was there any doubt? - the boys see each other at a Lakers Game and rush together for The Hug That Rocked Fandom!

Here's Michael! (His "date" was best buddy Chris.)

Here's Tom! (His "date" was a fancy-pants jewelry magnate!)

Tom sees Michael! *points*

He leaps up to greet him.

*MAN-HUGGIES* Game? What game?

This was an example of serendipity at its best: Tom & Michael don't realize they're being filmed; the vidder doesn't realize he's filming them. The game action just happened to shift the right way at the exact right moment to give us a perfect documentary moment of their affection. ♥ ♥ ♥

It is also a testament to the awesomeness of fangirls: the vid clip was found by the hard work of a poster at DTW; the hug 'caps above were made by JayPat.

I'm going to go out on a limb....and predict MORE Tom & Michael cuteness in 2010!!!

what is michael's twitter name??
This is Michael:

Some celebrities are "verified" by twitter...see the little check mark by Nathan Fillin's name?

Of the SV people, Cassidy Freeman and Allison Mack also have accounts:


And also the writers!

I'm VivianBloom on twitter:

And lots of your LJ buddies will be on twitter too - best way to find out is to make a post & ask for their twitter names!

Awww! Michael's twittering is definitely a highlight of 2009 for me. And the Hug! So adorable - and lucky that it was captured on video!

I hadn't thought about celebs being sensitive about defriendings on Twitter - I assumed that they had so many followers they wouldn't notice if a few go missing. I've unfollowed a few that were boring - I hope I didn't make anyone cry!

It depends on the celeb...I'm sure some of them don't even notice. The celebs I've seen get bothered by being unfollowed are: Neil Ga_man, Virginia Mads_n, and the G_nn brothers. (Letters redacted to prevent feelings getting hurt in case they're also self-googlers!)

Michael's twittering is definitely a highlight of 2009 for me.
He's so cute! *squishes* For 2010, I want him to replace his twitter pic with a better view of his face.

It was their big romantic-movie moment! Michael determinedly making his way through the crowd; Tom jumping up to GLOMP him. Beautiful.

How about...Michael can't stop laughing on set & Tom calms him down? Or Tom keeps tickling Michael? Or the boys exchange Happy New Year's texts?

I'll love whatever you write!

Great quotes and pics! I hope 2010 is a wonderful year for both of them.

(And I wish Tom had a twitter account, but I guess he'd be like the last celeb to think of getting one)

Thank you!

I'd love if Tom had a twitter but I'm sure he'd be under siege from fans wanting things from him. Hopefully, he'll do an interview at least & I'd love a new photo shoot!
