Celebrity Spotlight

I first fell in love with him back in 1990, when I saw the movie "Criminal Justice." It wasn't his first film, but the first time I really took notice of him. I used to tell my husband he was the only man I'd ever leave him for. No, not Jesse; I'm talking about Forest Whitaker.

I was crazy about Forest, long before his Academay Award winning performance in "The Last King of Scotland," and before "Ms. Keisha." But, I ain't hatin'.

According to IMDb, he was born Forest Steven Whitaker, on July 15, 1961, in Longview, Texas. He stands 6'2' tall. Some of his other films include:

Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
Vision Quest (1985)
North and South (1985)(and sequel)
The Color of Money (1986)
Platoon (1986)
Stakeout (1987)
Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)
Bird (1988)
The Crying Game (1992)
Johnny Handsome (1989)
Prêt-à-Porter (1994) (loved it!)
Species (1995)
Smoke (1995)
Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999)
Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 (2000)
The Twilight Zone TV series (2002)
A Rage in Harlem (1991) (loved it!)

He was my first "celebrity" crush. And you know what they never forget your first. :-) That's it for now, Bloggers. Stay Blessed and happy.
