I daydream quite often. I daydream about my life, my future, or what I’m going to eat for dinner. And then there are times when I daydream about women. It’s expected because I’m queer. But there’s something distinct about this particular dream that has led to this post. Sometimes I daydream about buff arms and the women that they belong to.
Now, this isn’t me just swooning over hot actresses. Oh no, this is something more. This is me going, “Imagine how many hours they spent at the gym?” with a side of, “I wonder how much ass they can kick with those arms?” Behind the scenes footage answers the first one and footage from the movies of TV shows that they’re on answer the latter.
Point being, sometimes both questions pop up in your head at the most random time and you end up swooning over Emily Blunt’s arms in Edge of Tomorrow or Lee Si-Young’s in Sweet Home. And that’s only the beginning, only the cusp, of actresses who have thrown it down and dedicated themselves to being the biggest and buffest badass around!
1. Emily Blunt from Edge of Tomorrow
I’m going to be honest with you, Emily Blunt and her arms saved Edge of Tomorrow. Sure, Tom Cruise was the lead technically. But in my heart, Emily Blunt and her arms were the stars of this movie and the reason why I keep coming back to it, year after year.
2. Lee Si-Young from Sweet Home
Every time I look at Lee Si-Young I am amazed by the hard work and dedication that she put into looking like this. Not only does she look like she could bench press me, she looks like the superhero to take down all the monsters in Sweet Home!
3. Jada Pinkett Smith from Gotham
Honestly, I barely remember Gotham. I know it was creative. I know it was different. And I know that Jada Pinkett Smith and her arms always made me take pause and swoon. What more do you need, honestly?
4. Brie Larson from Captain Marvel
Brie Larson came for her role in Captain Marvel. She dived in, head first, and showed that she could take down the likes of someone as buff as Jude Law. And even though I couldn’t find a better picture of her rocking arms flexing, the point stands. She’s killing it!
5. Jenette Goldstein from Aliens
Jenette Goldstein’s arms in Aliens were one of the first times I got butterflies in my stomach for a woman, a clear sign now that I was queer, even at a young age. She was as strong as the boys on the team and held up her own. What more could you want?
