Having read the announcement that Sam Taylor-Wood was to marry a 19-year-old actor, I, like many others no doubt, raised my eyebrows to a rather discerning height.
However, I have just placed who Aaron Johnson (for that is his name) actually is and where I’ve seen him from! He was ‘Owen’ in Nearly Famous! (amongst other roles which people will know him far better for).
I had the biggest crush on him back in Autumn 2007 when Nearly Famous aired on E4, and have recently been re-watching the episodes (and pausing at all the topless bits heh!!).
I love the music sequences, especially ‘What A Feeling’ (at 38 secs):
If you’re interested in watching the series, you can do so on YouTube via 4OD – I really recommend it – it’s only 6 episodes long, but I know that those with an interest in stage schools especially will probably enjoy it, as will Aaron fans, as he is the lead character! 😀
So now, I am even more mortified at this news of marriage!
I am not going to pretend to understand how the relationship works, that’s not really my business I guess – I’m sure many people wouldn’t fully understand Greg and I, which I accept. If it makes them both happy, then good for them – I’m not averse to the idea, just slightly surprised. Ultimately, as long as he is allowed to get his kit off with the same frequency as a quick Google Images search seems to suggest, I’m happy! 😉
What’s that you say? You want to see proof of those images? 😛
