Hello out there-
I'm glad I found and read through this topic on a forum. I have what could be called a 'celebrity obsession,' although I don't think I'm obsessed with him yet, and he's not a very famous celebrity.
He's a little-known actor who I happened to find and follow on Instagram months ago, just because he did voiceover commercials. About a year ago, I was constantly hearing this ad on the radio. Normally, I HATE radio ads! I want to hear music. And-- (This is crazy!!) I started to fall in love with the guy's voice. Don't ask, LOL, I don't understand how I managed to fall in love with a random man's voice.
That led to me Googling the commercial information, and I found a few video commercials with the actor playing the same 'role' as the radio ads, same voice! He's definitely a nice-looking guy, close to my age when I assumed he was much younger. He looks younger than he is, I guess! I learned his name right away, and I found his Instagram account. I followed him, since I follow about 300 random people I don't personally know, usually authors, photographers, and minor actors. It's fun to follow these artistic and talented people. I'm a wife and mom with a dull career, married for almost 16 years. I have dabbled in photography, theater, and writing myself, so I follow these people's social media. I often feel jealous I can't make a living doing what they do. But that's a whole other story.
After some more snooping and searching about this commercial actor- I know you can relate- I learned that he once acted as a child in a movie, made about 30 years ago. It was one of those wholesome, musical family-friendly films. He was just one young boy in a group of singing and performing kids, and he was never that famous. I found his IMDB page, and then I learned he did TV acting about 20 years ago, having a bit part in a well-known kids' show. It was a kids' show that my own daughter watched in reruns a few times.
Once I found out he was a minor celebrity, I started paying more attention to his Instagram posts and started to fall into this completely immature crush on the guy! He's so down to earth and relatable. He's a Star Wars fan like me. He documents his life just like an average, ordinary Joe. He posts things about doing voiceovers, once he posted a clip of himself in that popular TV show, but he also posts cute videos about his handy do-it-yourself home projects. Two separate times I commented on his IG posts, just something polite and complimentary, and each time he liked my comments! I was on Cloud Nine each time!
The reason I mentioned this is that while reading this whole thread, I saw that a lot of you are able to reach out and contact your "CO" on social media. You feel such a high, so ecstatic when they respond back to you. I felt this way from his liking my comments. For now, I don't know if this actor has a wife or not. I'm married. I know I should only be into my husband, who I've known 20 years. Celebrity crushes are supposed to be for teenagers screaming for Justin Beiber or the members of One Direction or whatever, LOL. Yet I'm struggling with this silly crush on this minor celebrity, even fantasizing that I'd lived in L.A. and could have met him. I'm not so much in love, but I'm infatuated.
Now I'm trying to avoid going down the rabbit hole of searching for everything about him! It's not a very good emotional state to be in. I hope to find someone to talk to about this. Thanks.
