She is fun and gorgeous and didn’t even know he was an actor when they first began dating. Meet Crystal Umphrey, who is the epitomy of the small-town girl next door with ‘tude. Sam Worthington’s girlfriend is definitely a keeper and word is that she is The One, something for which we approve and you will too once you learn more about her.
You all know him already but I bet you didn’t know he can take a punch! Sam got famous from his starring role in the Avatar movie and more recently Clash of the Titans. He has seen a meteoric rise in his career and at the same time been named as one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. Some guys have all the luck. But you know all about him already so what about Crystal Umphrey?
Biography: Crystal Blue Umphrey is a 23-year old free-spirit from Portland, Oregon, and yes her middle name really is Blue. That is an oxymoron because she is anything but a downer. She always has a smile on her face and is the perfect up person for a Hollywood WAG with a sense of humor who can make him laugh.
She graduated from Green Mountain High School in 2005, which is located in Lakewood, Colorado. We don’t know why she came to Portland but she has never shied away from going here and there around the world. We also don’t think she attended college as her profile does not mention any. And that’s fine. College isn’t ‘for everyone, and it helps develop our Cinderella story.
She was working as a bartender in a small restaurant in Portland when one day fate changed her life. The Saucebox Cafe & Bar is a lower priced casual but trendy restaurant in the downtown area, just the perfect fit for our girl next door. In came Sam for a bite to eat and luckily for her, a drink. They exchanged phone numbers and he asked her out for their first date. That was over a year ago early in 2011.
What I love about this story is that Crystal did not know he was a famous actor at first. Her friends tried to tell her but she didn’t believe them until they rolled one of his movies for her. Totally cool. Crystal is a genuine person who is interested in Sam for the right reasons. He is an intelligent and articulate hunk, who could have been dirt poor for all she know. But she liked him for who he is rather than for his fame.
Soon she began following him around the world on his movie set locations, not as a groupie mind you but as a supportive girlfriend. When you are a bartender, I suppose, it is easy enough to give up that life at least temporarily as it is quite a mobile occupation that can be picked up anytime.
Their relationship began to flourish and within the year Miss Umphrey had moved into his luxurious Hanalei, Hawaii stud farm, umm, I mean home. She calls her new home paradise. It sits right on the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean, where the couple can go on romantic strolls along the surf and gaze at sunrises each morning. That is assuming they get out of bed early enough, but when hanging out with a woman like Crystal we hope that isn’t too early in the day.
We don’t know Crystal’s measurements but her hair style has gone from brunette to blond recently. It is a good look for her that is befitting of the beach. Besides blondes have more fun. Everyone knows that.
She has a MySpace page here where you can see her (fully clothed) among nude tribal people and learn that her favorite actor (oops!) is Will Farrell. Equally exciting is Crystal’s Facebook page over here. They sure kiss a lot!
Miss Umphrey loves travel, music, and anything having to do with water. Her favorite music style includes the reggae beat, when she isn’t water skiing or frolicking in the surf. She has traveled quite a lot, including Australia which she visited before she knew Sam. And she is very close to her sister and her cute little doggie.
The video below is of Sam Worthington’s girlfriend from 2009 whose name is Natalie Natalie Marks, a fashion stylist who was also not famous. He likes to date normal women which is something we wholeheartedly approve of. As you can see she looks terribly nervous in the red carpet appearance, which is pretty common among Hollywood WAGs. That is one of the reasons that these relationships tend not to last.
We hope that he has better luck with Crystal Umphrey. She is obviously a keeper in my book and your own as well once you get over the heartbreak that every girl’s heartthrob is taken. Oh well, you had your chance.
