Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Is that possible?




Sorry, I wasn't listening -- or thinking, whichever one applies.

LOL!!! I'm straight too and I find myself appreciating gays more and more as I age(I am 36)...overall they have style and many have a good sense of humour. I must be a lesbian trapped in a dude's body

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

You can be a straight female and dig Olivia, for Pete's sake! She is good friends with Cliff Richard (who is VERY sexy!). They both sing Suddenly (the recording studio scene).

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

It's pretty much a requirement for women who want to date me that you must adore this movie and movie soundtrack! Some of the reactions to this info have been very interesting....

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

No. Your feelings about her are totally invalid until you "do it" with a man.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

im gay but i have to admit im nto big into her, i didnt gropw up during the era i was born in '82 after all. my sister has a lot of her stuff on vinyl though.

im a bigger fan of Roxette.

i thought the movie moved slow in the beginning but got really good at the end.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

She's a very attractive woman. I'd be surprised if straight males _weren't_ into her.

Look, i am straight, married male. Born in 62, making me 46.

Olivia was absolutely the hottest woman on the planet when she made this movie, and frankly, I was hooked. Even now, I think about what she looked/looks like, and wished I was a multi-million dollar baseball player or something like that, because I would have done about anything to hook up with her.

Even the Physical video was smoking, although it was completely ruined with all those men bouncing around and holding hands, etc., but Olivia in spandex??? I'd watch all day, every day!

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

When she made Xanadu, she already past her prime. Even then, she was still every boy's wet dream. I thought a bigger mistake she made than being in this movie wearing those weird looking customs at the end was being in that idiotic "Physical" video.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

As a straight man, a writer, an artist, I had my first crush on Olivia. You could say she was my muse to become a better man.

To say only gays can dig Olivia is pretty narrow minded, self-serving and maybe bigoted.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

I agree that's fairly ignorant. I'm straight and I had a huge crush on Olivia in the 80s when I was a little kid.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Past her prime at 32? That idiotic Physical was the number one song for 10 weeks straight and the best selling song of the entire decade. The video won the very first Grammy awarded for short form video.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

What I meant there was that she was so beautiful that even in her 30s, she was still every boy's wet dream. I would say her prime was during the mid 70s when she was known only as a singer.

More than fine, she was & still is beautiful to this day, a classy lady

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Nope, Ur Gay. :)

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

No, screw all of that. She's my dream girl, even to this day. I'm 38 now, and she is stil 21 in my mind...even in TWO OF A KIND, she holds this "magic" quality that I find astounding. Just a crush, probably, y'know? Right?

Right?

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

HELL YEAH!! I'm one of many living examples. Take my word for it. Don't get the "gay monopoly" on her. She's just so pure...
Or are you ladies and gentlemen talking about the relationship between Kelly and Beck?

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?


It's more than possible, my friend. I'm straighter than a flag pole on a calm day in January. And I was raised on Olivia thanks to my big sister. I acted like I hated Olivia back then, but after growing up I found myself to be very appreciative of Olivia's music. And I also realized that she was very hot. When you're a little kid, you don't notice these things. Olivia rocks! And Xanadu is a lot of fun.

Many "gay" things are a lot of fun. Xanadu, Wizard of Oz, Rocky Horror, and Perezhilton.com are some of my faves. Hell, even Elton John grows on you if you listen to him enough.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

I've never seen this movie, but I have always been into Olivia and I am straight. I had an 8th grade shop teacher (married, straight guy); whose office in his classroom had every inch of wall space covered with pics of her. I've been a fan of her (looks wise, anyhow) ever since. Thanks to Mr. Harker for helping kick starting those teen hormones.

"Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?"

Probably not in XANADAU, at any rate.

album btwn Grease + Xanadu was called Totally Hot for a reason

ONJ was totally hot and here's the video:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HlMUjCTxH0&feature=related

Actually…that was kinda gay. 'A Little More Love' is more like it

Also from the TOTALLY HOT (1978) album.

Now, that's a hot chick.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

This could be the stupidest question I've ever read on IMDb.

For one thing, Olivia wa a hot chick in 1980, so uhh ya, straight guys crushed on her big time. (Including me when I was 8)

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Watching Xanadu right now (ah, nostalgia at it's corniest!) and I started looking a few of the cast member up to see where they were now and I saw this thread and laughed. So many guys in here reflecting my own thoughts. I was totally crushing on her when I was younger (I'm 32), she was way hot, really an "80s" kinda celeb, and there's nothing gay about me.

Everybody has guilty pleasures, even straight guys. Some guys like ABBA, some guys like to sing and dance when nobody's watching, and some of us watch corny movies and fantasize about pretty girls. What's not straight about that? What does it matter?

Funny topic though, even if it's an old one here.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Hell yea!

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

While I appreciate Olivia's singing talent, as a straight male, frankly I just never found her all that sexually appealing. She was certainly very pretty in her younger days, but she was a bit wimpy for my taste. Nonetheless, millions of straight guys fell in love with her back in the late '70s and '80s. Like fellow Aussie songbird Kylie Minogue, she appeals to both persuasions.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

I'm very much straight, and every time I watch this movie I can't help but think that ONJ had to be the most beautiful woman on Earth at the time. I probably sound like some lovesick idiot, but she's so beautiful in this movie it's almost ridiculous.

She's still damn hot. She's in her 60s and I wouldn't hesitate to fall to my knees before her.

I don't understand the question. Shouldn't it be Can One Be a GAY Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Hell yeah! Olivia was smoking hot in this and showed plenty of leg. :)

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

I'm straight and loved her in this movie when I was 11.

Are you trying to suggest she looks like a man?

She's quite the woman, and looks nothing like a man.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?


Is that possible?
I think there are probably several thousand fans of Grease that would say yes.

Let Zygons Be Zygons.

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Yes We talked about her in High school lunch and watched her TV specials .
I wrote fan mail to her and got a bunch of 8x10 pictures of her.

I don't know. I was just teasing the OP about a long-ago Rosemary's Baby quote he used to have.

There, Daddy. Do I get a gold star?

Re: Can One Be a Straight Male and Still Dig Olivia?

Are you kidding? I credit Olivia as the women I fell in love with first. At the age of 7 I absolutely adored Olivia. "Magic" and "Suddenly" and "Xanadu" practically melted my Fisher-Price record player. Hahaha...

She was so beautiful in this movie. Looking back now they had her in some serious 80s cheese clothing, and those endless boots and leg warmers. But as a kid, all I saw were boots, ruffles, and that lovely blonde hair. I guess it didn't hurt that my babysitter had got me hooked on roller skating a few years earlier. That and not having any real appreciation of movie production values... hell Olivia hit me straight in the eyes.
