But before I do, a little refresher on all the Miss Crushes of years past. It's a high honor on the Bimillennial Man, don't you know?

And now we come to a new year and a new crush. Yes, I know I recently devoted an entire blog post to the lovely Asal Soltani. And some of you might have expected her to receive the award this year. But, nope! She's neither an actor nor a singer. Fashion models are ineligible for the award, I'm afraid.
Problem is, there are no new or fresh faces in either category that I'm currently enamored with this year. So that left me scrambling to find someone who's been in the game for a while now. Considering the 5-point criteria of physical attractiveness I outlined earlier here, the resulting pool of candidates would come as no surprise to those who know me. But when I saw this new trailer for the sequel to the 2006 movie 300--which is hitting theaters in 2014--I knew I had found THE ONE!
So, without further pause, I give thee, good people ...
Miss Crush 2013!!!
Ah yes, the lovely and very talented Eva Green. Step up to the podium and take a bow.
Ms. Green first came to my attention as the King of Jerusalem's sister in director Ridley Scott's 2005 opus, Kingdom of Heaven. Which, btw, is in my Top 5 movies of all time. No joke. But it was when I spied her playing the role of Vesper Lynd across from the man himself--James Bond!--in the following year's Casino Royale that I truly fell in love with this French beauty.
So why did it take this long for her to receive Miss Crush honors on the Bimillennial Man? Well, because of all the previous winners, that's why!
But lately I've also been getting a whole heaping spoonful of subliminal Eva Green everywhere I go. First was news that she would have a prominent role in the Sin City sequel coming out later this year. Which is so awesome I don't even know where to begin. Then, I was flipping through the channels the other day and came upon last year's Johnny Depp-starring bomb, Dark Shadows. The scene I just happened across was a very raunchy one, with darling Eva positively popping out of her dress. And apparently that visualization wormed its way deep into my psyche, because next thing I knew I was having very naughty dreams about Ms. Green and myself caught in some compromising situations. The less discussed about those situations, the better.
And then I came across the aforementioned teaser trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, and I realized some higher power in the universe was trying to tell me something:
"David, Eva Green must be this year's Miss Crush winner. It has been ordained."
Sure thing, mysterious higher power voice in my head. Who am I to argue with divine decree, right?
Oh, and did I mention she has an identical twin sister? Yeah, ponder that a bit why don't you. I certainly have!
So what do you think? Is Eva Green a worthy addition to the stunning roster of celeb crushes I've had over the years? As usual, sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts on the subject.
Meanwhile, it's getting late and I think I'll head back to dreamland. Eva and I, uh, have some more compromising situations to fall into ...
