I was looking up pics for another post and I fell down the Johnny loves Winona oubliette. While I was able to see that Johnny was a handsome fellow, I was more full on obsessed with his 21 Jump Street partner Doug Penhall in all his feathered hair, acid washed jean jacket and big, brown puppy dog eyed glory. But I wanted to be like Winona forever and their mildly inapprops, totally besotted alternalove nestled up in the hollow of my straight girl living in a gay man’s world little heart and took root.
He’s married to some 27 year old blond bombshell now because he’s a dirty old perv, but how great would it be if they got back together like some romantic comedy starring Diane Keaton and a host of old dudes? Buzzfeed agreed that they were totes perf and should reunite as modifying his tattoo a second time should require less pain and effort.
Of course there is the dirty old perv factor so maybe this isn’t entirely in the best interest of the most hauntingly beautiful waif of the early 90’s. I would love to see her come back instead in a big way. Beetlejuice 2(it’s all happening, peeps), a few juicy, meaty, succulent indie film parts to flash those luminous eyes in and she would have America’s heart once again, like she always has had mine.
Winona forever and ever.
