Aw, I got 97% emotional, 92% intellectual but only 77% physical (89%). Guess we'll just be great friends with (3/4) benefits. (My best matches: Gary Payton 100%, Rhys Ifans 99%, Clay Walker 98%, Matthew Perry 98%, Steve Vai 98%... Who are #1, 3 & 5?? Oh, but it turns out I'm 100% physically compatible with Brad Pitt. Does that make me equal to Angelina Jolie?)

Oh goody. One of my best matches was with Glenn Quinn who's DEAD. (I've got a 97% for Joseph Finnes, however, which is nice.) Anyway, I've got an 80% match with HL - 85% physical, 97% emotional, and 58% intellectual.

Sadly, I'm not much of a match with HL, but if Cal Ripken ever becomes available we were apparently made for each other. His eyes are almost as purty as HL's!

I saw this HL quote online and thought it was funny, so I thought I'd post an excerpt (it's from a "Stuart Little" interview).

Did you have any trouble with your American accent?

I watched a lot of television - that was my training. Pretty arduous it was too. Jonathan (Lipnicki, who plays George Little) had a dialect coach and I used to borrow her every now and then because you never want to bother the other actors. I didn't want to go to Geena 'Just say cylindrical again for me.' That would be annoying. The first film I just stayed American all the time on the set because going in and out messes up your ear. Plus, if you're living in America, it's easier to go and buy milk as an American. If you go as an Englishman you've got to say everything twice.

I wonder if he asks anyone on the "House" set to pronounce stuff for him--RSL, maybe?

No, because I'm in it, and I'm the same age. So what if he's old enough to be our fathers? He's still hot and talented.

Oh good...I've got almost 3 years on you two, but the fact that he's older than my dad mademe a leetle bit worried with myself at first.

ETA: Just because I'm young doesn't mean I can confuse 'two' with 'too'!

My overall compatibility with Hugh is 89%: physical 77%, emotional 90%, intellectual 99%. Bizarre. But I take comfort in the intellectual -- after all, the brain *is* the sexiest organ, right?

My "best' matches: Wierd Al Yankovic 99%, Sam Raimi (who?) 99%, Victor Reinier (who?) 98%, Benjamin Bratt 98%, Brad Pitt 98% (wow, according to them, I too am 100% physical match & 100% intellectual match -- I think the former would horrify Brad & the latter is a bit, er, insulting to me!).

If I switch-hit, my perfect match is Meg Ryan -- 100% across the board. I suspect it is because we share a birthday.

praeceptrix, don't sell yourself short -- as far as the physical match with Mr. Pitt. But I have a feeling Mr. Pitt isn't dumb. An intellect? Well, no, probably not. I think he's fairly bright -- aside from his alleged infidelity. (Oh Lord -- Benjamin Bratt!!! Oh Lord -- Weird Al??)

And I can't get onto that site to do the compatibility test! If this is based on birthdays, then I'm guessing I'm not a good match with HL. : ( (Well, if it's based on birthdays, then I'm going with horoscopes ... I'm a Sag he's a Gemini. Bad match.)

The people I match the best with have last names like LuaLua and Coco. Does that mean I'm in trouble?

Sam Raimi (who?) 99% - praeceptrix


He directed Spiderman. Supposedly very respected.

And I sympathize with all those who have bad matches of either gender. I've never heard of any of my male matches and with female matches... they matched me with Charlize Theron at 98%. Dear God. Perhaps it's my fervent loathing of Charlize that has made me a match. Blah blah blah she was good in [/I]Monster[I] (so they say). I guess I should just be happy it wasn't Nicole Kidman.

Thanks for the clarification lostdwarf. That is even a movie I have actually seen! And liked. I feel better now. And then I remember Wierd Al...

If it makes you feel better, he was really cool in the early 90s.

Not so much now, but at least he had the 90s.

My Hugh index: overall 66%; physical 46%; emotional 43%; intellectual 99%. And I'm just going to have to take comfort from that since this site tells me that I'm merely 56% compatible with Ioan Gryffud (56%). Might as well do the whole Sense and Sensibility trifecta and share that my index for Hugh Grant is 69% (shrug) and for Alan Rickman is 85%....
