who are your favorite literary stud muffins?


Okay, friends. It’s muffin time!

Today, we’re featuring a zero-calorie breakfast that’s sure to get those creative juices flowing. It’s also very easy on the eyes — a dozen freshly baked literary stud muffins!

Since we run an equal opportunity bakery here, we’ve actually got six muffins and six muffinettes. Each was featured in a film or TV series based on a well-known book (or play), and all of them totally blew me away with their consummate acting, drop-dead gorgeous looks, charisma, and enormous staying power.

After you’ve feasted on this achingly sweet breakfast, please vote for one stud muffin and one stud muffinette. Write-in votes are accepted if your fave is not listed here. Enjoy!

Les Muffins (made my toes curl):

Gregory Peck, To Kill a Mockingbird

Robert Redford, The Great Gatsby

Joe Fiennes, Shakespeare in Love (Lord have mercy)

Toby Stephens, Jane Eyre

Johnny Depp, Chocolat

Colin Firth, Pride and Prejudice

Les Muffinettes (I want to be them):

Keira Knightley, Pride and Prejudice

Vivian Leigh, Gone With the Wind

Elizabeth Taylor, National Velvet

Gwyneth Paltrow, Shakespeare in Love

Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mask of Zorro

Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Olivia Hussey, Romeo and Juliet

*Fans self*

I’m really anxious to see who you pick!

  1. How can I pick just one male? Tough choices.
    Muffin: It’s a tie between Johnny Depp, Colin Firth and Robert Reford.
    Muffinette: Audrey Hepburn all the way. The epitome of beauty, she is.


  2. Yeah, I think you’ve just inspired me to re-watch this movie, which I haven’t seen since shortly after it came out on video. Perhaps a Shakespeare in Love / P&P double feature…


  3. I’m going to be a rebel: My write-in vote is for Ralph Fiennes in just about any movie (except for the icky Silence of the Lambs one or whatever it’s called), particularly “The End of the Affair.”
    Jules, 7-Imp


  4. Isn’t Catherine Zeta-Jones just too beautiful to be real? Have you seen her in the BBC series, “Darling Buds of May?” This is the series that first made her famous in the UK, and she was quite young. The early episodes show her before she got her teeth capped! Still beautiful, though . . .
