There is a moment...

... in the quite silly but delightfully watchable film Trance when James McEvoy's character says to the object of his affection something like: "I miss you when I'm not here". Except he doesn't just say it, he says it in basically the cutest way ever, while sort of playing with her fingers and leaning it to kiss her cheek, all while not properly looking at her.

I fell for McEvoy in Atonement, where he not only used the word "cunt" in a love letter (swoon, although I guess a partial credit goes to Ian McEwan) but managed to convince me Keira Knightley was shaggable. Our love grew deeper in X-Men: First Class which I spent fantasising about a spin-off in which he and Michael Fassbender solved crimes by day and snogged in an armchair by night.

But it took me until Trance - that particular moment in the film - that I realised I would be prepared to give up the following if I could somehow force James McEvoy to fall in love with me.
  • Trashy Magazines
  • Cake
  • Cider
  • Singing in the shower (James, my neighbours thank you)
  • My boxed sets of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer
  • The Dandy Warhols' back catalogue
  • Potato gems (wait, potato gems? Yes, think of his eyes)
