Poor Steven R McQueen.
He’s 23, but much like his character Jeremy Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries is finding, it’s hard for us to stop thinking of him as a cute kid we’d like to put in our pocket, because of his young puppy appearance in the first season of TVD.
Awesome blogger Amy from Imaginary Men and fellow fangirl Trish even contemplated resurrecting their Dirty Old Lady moniker from fangirling days past, because even though they know Steven is in his 20s and therefore what they call Legal to Lust Over, perving on his youthful cuteness has made them feel a little guilty.
You know, the guilt many of us had over lusting after 16-year-old Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black in New Moon, a movie where he was contractually obligated to appear shirtless in every other scene.
(Though I would argue that his publicist pushed the manmeat angle hard… RollingStone Lautner cover I’m looking at you… so I didn’t feel too bad, but that is a story for another day. Or maybe I’m just a Dirty Young Lady at 23.)
The RPattz sparklepire hair he had at his audition for the Vampire Diaries didn’t help matters.
Fear not, fellow McQueen fans.
He may have made you feel like a Dirty Old Lady in the past, but I’ve taken the liberty to dig up photos and GIFs that prove it should be illegal NOT to lust after him.
Thought I would get your attention straight away with the battering ram equivalent of Legal to Lust Over!
The Vampire Diaries costume designers should totally take a cue from the Pirahna 3D wardrobe people. After all, we haven’t had a scene like this…
… since season one.
I’m sorry, my mind just blacked out for a second there. As Sookie Stackhouse would say, Jesus Christ Shepherd of Judea.
So why did he wear a suit to the masquerade ball when he could’ve gone like this?!
You guys, I think that being a dog is the secret way to the hearts of The Vampire Diaries boys. Another case in point:
Sometimes his cuteness is just too much to handle, people.
Baby, as long as that wasn’t plucked from your favourite meadow, it is all good.
Note to self: must land writing job that requires being in close proximity to extremely cute boys.
Amy pointed out my grievous mistake of not include the Jeremy Handgasm in my Best Jeremy Looks post. Let’s call this seeing the error of my ways 😉
Sorry guys, I just couldn’t make it through an entire post without a tiny piece of Trevino heaven 😉
And finally, my personal favourite: Steven’s attempt to get his own gallery in the Museum of Contemporary EuroHotPaulWesley Art…
Hope this makes up for the lack of Jeremy in The Descent episode, McQueen fans 🙂
