I got to tell you, this has been one of the most enjoyable articles to write for this website. It combines two of my favorite things: movies and ice cream.
In all reality though, I hope you enjoyed part 1 of this short series and that part 2 does not disappoint! Today, we take a look at some more popular actors and some that are, less just say, less than popular. Yet, they all have one thing in common: they can be compared to the sweet treat that brings a smile to my face. And sometimes a grimace. But mostly smiles!
Strawberry: Emma Stone
Emma Stone and strawberry ice cream are alike in a few vital ways: they remind me of summer, they are red, and they make me happy. I think most people would agree with me, except for those few who vehemently dislike strawberry ice cream. I just don’t get how you can hate on either Emma Stone or strawberry ice cream.
The reason I associate Stone with summer so much is because some of her best movies take place in sunny, bright settings. Of course, I’m talking about The Help (2011) and La La Land (2016), two very summer-ish movies that make me happy. However, just like strawberry ice cream, Emma Stone can be refined and sophisticated. Films like The Favourite (2018) showcase that hidden talent. Emma Stone and strawberry ice cream just put me in a good mood.
Butter Pecan: Stanley Tucci
I feel bad for butter pecan. It never gets picked or appreciated as much as the others. I feel the same way about Stanley Tucci. He’s a fantastic character actor and I’m sure he would do well in a more prominent leading role, but he has yet to catch that breakout role.
His characters in The Hunger Games (2012), The Devil Wears Prada (2006), and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) are hidden gems. Nobody can fully immerse themselves in a role as well as Tucci does. Yet, he only has one Oscar nomination and rarely does he make the top of anyone’s list. I believe that Tucci, like the underappreciated butter pecan ice cream, really needs some more attention.
Peanut Butter Cup: Megan Fox
I love peanut butter cups, but the combination of salty and sweet is one that I think describes Megan Fox best: attractive on the outside, less sweet on the inside. She’s more of a guilty pleasure than anything. Just like how peanut butter cup ice cream shouldn’t be eaten everyday, Fox should be enjoyed sparingly.
Megan Fox’s acting just always leaves something to be desired. In basically every film, she plays the same sassy female lead that’s kind of a jerk but it’s played off as being hot. Evidence can be found in Transformers (2007) and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004). Just to clear things up: just because a girl is attractive, it doesn’t make up for her lack of personality. Just because peanut butter cup ice cream tastes good, that shouldn’t detract from the fact that it’s still just some bland vanilla ice cream with off-brand Reese’s thrown in.
Mint Chocolate Chip: Samuel L. Jackson
The word that best describes Samuel L. Jackson is cool. The man just oozes self-confidence and charm. Like mint chocolate chip ice cream, Jackson is already a cool cat and each year he just gets better and better, like finding one precious chocolate chip after another.
Even before playing Nick Fury in the Marvel Universe, Jackson was pretty cool. He was a badass in Pulp Fiction (1994) and Shaft (2000). He knew how to pull those heartstrings in Coach Carter (2005). Jackson even had a surprising humorous side to him in Loaded Weapon 1 (1993). Casting him as the compiler of the Avengers was really the icing on the cake — or the extra chocolate chips in the mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Rainbow Sherbet: Tom Holland
The biggest similarity between Tom Holland and rainbow sherbet? They’re both soft and sweet. Additionally, both Holland and rainbow sherbet are quite colorful personalities. Rainbow sherbet is a burst of flavor in your mouth. Holland is a burst of flavor on screen.
Just like sherbet usually is, Holland is a refreshing change from the normal. He’s not your usual quiet, reserved Spider-Man you remember from your childhood. He’s outgoing and charismatic. Holland appeals to a wider audience not only because he’s incredibly attractive on the outside, but also because of the personality he holds inside of him. See the comparison now?
Lemon Custard: Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is not an actor — he is a singer and doesn’t belong in a movie. Lemon custard is not ice cream and I don’t know why we have it in our ice cream shop. Yet, here we have both Justin Timberlake and lemon custard.
Timberlake may be some people’s cup of tea, but he’s certainly not mine. When you have a filmography that includes Trolls (2016), Friends with Benefits (2011), and the dreadful In Time (2011), you cannot call yourself an actor. However, he appeals to a certain audience, most likely because of his boyish charm and roguishly handsome face. Kind of the same way that children are drawn to the lemon custard because it’s bright yellow, not because of its substance.
