Charles (a.k.a. Charlie) McDowell is not only the mastermind behind the funniest book I’ve ever read, Dear Girls Above me, but also a director, an actor, and he comes from an extensive bloodline of showbiz royalty? Here are a couple of reasons why he deserves all our love, my treat. Happy McDowell Monday #2!

  1. He is literally the funniest man on earth.Laugh

Or inside my head at least.

  1. Surprisingly honest. Even though his debut novel, DGAM, was full of funny, awkward and exaggerated moments, the story is strongly based on his viral twitter feed (@charliemcdowell) and his life under and away from the girls above him.lesbehonest.gif

They say honesty is the best policy, he just found a way to have fun with it.

  1. McDowell is a triple threat; he’s a director & screenwriter, an actor and an author.resized_the-most-interesting-man-in-the-world-meme-generator-i-don-t-always-multitask-but-when-i-do-i-do-it-well-7a0969

I guess that sort of makes him a quadruple threat..?

  1. His tweets. Nuff said.eiv5ZsaI can’t stop laughing every time I either grab that book or read his twitter feed!
  1. He is the most resourceful person in the planet, comes from a long line of showbiz royalty, including him being the son of Academy Award winner Mary Steenburgen and A Clockwork Orange’s Malcolm McDowell. He also dated Broadway star and Glee Alumni, Kristin Chenoweth, as well as actresses Rooney Mara and Haylie Duff.

You have check it out on Netflix right now!

  1. He gave us just so we don’t have to scroll down over two years of non DGAM related content on his twitter account to get some Cathy & Claire bonuses.OACGScroll

You can check his archive right here.

  1. After dealing with the girls above him over three and a half years (see archive history on link from reason #7), the man is practically a saint.point5

At least they grow on him… sort of.

  1. McDowell is a hottie that doesn’t seem to notice or realize how attractive he truly is.BeFunky Collage copy

Pictures speak louder than words.

  1. And finally, he loves making lists just as much as we do.BeFunky Collage2

Yup, sound like the sort of lists we’d be doing in his position.

Bonus: His birthday was last Friday.


Happy Belated birthday Charlie! and Happy McDowell Monday!

Do you agree with my list? Do you know anything I might not know yet after our constant Charlie stalking, or as he might describe it, “a friend who active (reads? or…) listens?” Let us know in the comments section below!
