From a reader: Who was your first celebrity crush?
Donny Osmond. I'm old, lol. David Cassidy next.
Jordan knight nkotb..hangs head in shame
Kirk Cameron : )
Peter DeLuise on 21 Jump Street. Rawr 😉
Maybe John Denver? My mom listened to his live double album nonstop when I was little. I still love his music and feel so sad about his untimely death.
Marcia Brady not Jan. When Jan grew up I changed over.
Davy Jones of "The Monkees" and David Cassidy. I'm old too 😉
Matt Dillion/c Thomas Howell
Meanie, Mr. F and I are going to Vegas next week for our 20th anniversary, and guess who has tickets to see Donny and Marie?? THIS middle-aged gal!! (And my very sweet hubs arranged all of it on the sly to surprise me, even the D & M tickets.) Seventies 4 ever, baby!
GEORGE MICHAEL!!! He's not gay!
Mark Harmon. Flamingo Rd. 1981. Aged 12. A lifetime love was born.
Me too! I saw the Osmonds in concert twice as a kid. I also really liked Bobby Sherman.
Shawnn and David Cassidy
P.S. – I'm counting on all y'all to entertain me this afternoon – I've got the whambulance on standby; summertime flu is making me cranky and sad. I need something really great to happen 'round here to life my spirits, K?
Boy George -when people kept telling me he was gay, I thought they meant he was happy.
Rick Schroder on Silver Spoons in 1982. I was 10 and thought he was IT!
Linda Carter. Still is…
Hey amh! Haven't see you around in ages! How's it going?
Face man 🙁
Josh Hartnett-The Faculty
Christian Slater 🙂
Suger(tits)River P was my first but Joey from NKOTB was probably my 2nd.
Shawn Cassidy and Roy Scheider!
He was too baby 4 me. I liked the faux bad boy with 1 earing
I was IN LOVE with George Michael
Had his posters everywhere
And also randomly Richard Dean Anderson LOL
That's mine too!
@RealDragon Zeke! Oh shit I'm gonna have to high five you on this one.
Sugar(tits) I think that's why I liked him. He was closer to my age than the other boys.
I wanted to live in his fun house
Warecat !!! Me too. Was gutted when he died.
Frufra, thanks! I've been good, but for a while there seemed to be drama within the comments so I just stayed away.
But being able to profess my adoration for Ricky Schroder couldn't be passed up. I mean, I even wrote to him and got an autographed photo! 😉
P.s. Whatever happened to the DeFranco family and my Bobby Sherman Choker? Dammit. "I cried like a baby, in the darkness if my room".
Dylan. .Never Ever Brandon! !! Like Never!!
He was pretty darn hot in the Faculty !!! Yum yum. I do love them tall.
John Schneider on Dukes of Hazzard. I looooved me some Bo Duke!
Richard Greico and Johnny Depp
River Phoenix. First celebrity crush & death. Also adored Jonathon Brandis so not the best luck with earlier celebrity crushes.
Le sigh me too
Later on Heath Ledger. Like I said. Worst like ever when it comes to celebrity crushes. ( Side note Hubby shares same Bday as Heath ! )
Wait, is this crush or first lady boner/boner? 😉
I quickly graduated to Jim Morrison. Didn't matter that he was dead.
@frufa. Get well soon. Sick in tbe summer sucks. I was down for 3 weeks. It can piss a girl off!
Ok. Back to laughs her. You got some good stuff on this bread. I mean, @Feedly's first crush was Weird Al! That's his at make ya laugh. (-:
It's probably a tie between Rider Strong, Brad Renfro, and Andrew Keegan. And JTT, but slightly less so.
Typo. "That's gotta" make u laugh.
@AJ Brad Renfro 🙁I just want to hug the cast of Apt Pupil.
This one goes way back: Ilya Kuriyakin (AKA David McCallum)
Actual crush, Corey Haim. This crush was foreshadowing for the next 20 years of crushes and bad relationships.
Pre school obsession, Michael Jackson and the Dukes of Hazzard
Kiefer Sutherland. So hot in Young Guns and The Lost Boys!! Love that boy.
Another Shaun Cassidy here. I loved watching the Hardy boys in 2nd grade. His silk warm-up jackets were so zexy!
Dr. Kildare – Richard Chamberlain. I was around 6.
Feel better @Fru!
"Bread"???? This "thread"! EffMy typing is laughable.
@Karen I forgot about JTT! Swoon
I almost mentioned him too. He was talented Riven.
To be fair, it was after Al ditched the UHF fro and glasses. What can I say, I like a man who makes me laugh!
Like Perry forevaaa
Aw, I'm sorry you feel like crap. We should be able to keep you entertained. 😀
Your hubs is very sweet to arrange all that, ooh la! 🙂
On Sunday nights my family was always out on tbe beach at the fire pitt. My dad had to buy me a battery / portable little TV so I (and my bestie alwsys with me)wouldn't miss the Hardy Boys. But I was all about Parker! My gf, the Shawn lover, called him Porker. But I would have gladly taken Shaun too. Sooooo pretty, he was.
devon sawa (Casper)the actor that played Atreyu in never ending story 🙂
You're not alone! Davy Jones, followed by Paul Michael Glazer.
David Bowie in the Labyrinth and Peter from the Monkees. I use to watch The Monkees on Nickelodeon when I got home from school. And my sister and I loved the Labyrinth…I was 6 and she was 4 and we sang all the songs. I could never understand why she was running away from Jareth.
Andy Gibb, and all that glorious chest hair. Followed by KC from KC and the Sunshine Band. Old here.
@Riven *High Five *
@ AJ I loved Zeke. even the Jock was kinda hot. I m about to put dvd now
Elijiah Wood too! Oh yeah and Shawn Hatosy as the jock. John Stewart and Famke Jansen as teachers! And the kids spend the movie snorting caffeine tabs lol. Best movie ever.
I am definitely watching it tonight. 😀
Kirk Cameron Ricky Schroder River Phoenix Chad Allen
Can't remember which came first, but they all appeared on my bedroom wall at some point.
Thanks for the kind words, guys. I'm truly just sick enough to throw myself a pity party. Gotta just focus on the gossip to get through the rough times :-).
OMG Movie nite, riven.
That he is, Rhysie – I'm a lucky lady! I know my CDaN peeps will get me through the day :-).

All of The Outsiders
Larry Mullen Jr.
Antonio Sabato Jr.
Doogie Howser, MD

I feel like even at age 8 I knew George Michael was gay.
Tried posting earlier on this one but having some technical difficulties. Michael Jackson all the way! Also I'm a big fan of the site but new as a commenter. Hey y'all!
I've heard from some of my friends who live in the New England area and have bumped into Jordan Knight that he is really really really short.
Oooh. I left Jon Bon Jovi off my list. For sure, I lusted after JBJ.
Kirk Cameron! I was so disappointed when he turned freak.
I am old too…bobby Sherman
Jason Bateman on Silver Spoons. Still crushing.
Susan ^5 on the GH shout outs. Frisco, Jason, Stone & Jagger were all so good looking but they were "adults" when I was watching. I crushed on Jonathon Jackson ( Lucky ) & adore him on Nashville now !!!
Another oldie here also!
Davy Jones and David Cassidy
followed with Andy Gibb, Michael Jackson, Shaun Cassidy and John Schneider (Bo Duke)!
Got a chance to see all these guys live except Michael. Andy Gibb was my first concert and have been addicted to live concerts since.
AJ! I absolutely love your avatar! I had a black lab that was the love of my life besides my hubby!
Aj who who you crushing on now? It will be good to know who may not be with us much longer.

Gabrielle Anwar in Scent Of A Woman. That Dress!!! Then I saw her play a figure skating cutie on the old 90210 where Brandon made out with her. Stupid Brandon.
Christian Juttner (Disney movies) and Shaun Cassidy
Val Kilmer! I was obsessed with him in Batman Forever!
Leonardo Dicaprio during his Titanic days! My friends and I would brag about how many times we saw the movie. I had a crush on Trey Parker, who is one of the guys who created South Park. He is the one without the curlu hair. I ended up buying the movie BASEketball because of my obsession.
After American Beauty, I had the hots for Kevin Spacey. After watching Ghost World it was Steve Buscemi. I still have a soft spot for Steve Buscemi because he is awesome.
Do cartoons count? When I was little I loved me some Racer X from speed racer
Tie. Kirk Cameron (vomit) and Trey Ames. Any one remember him. Kid on a TV. Some show about a family moving to Australia and his sister couldn't speak.
depp during 21 jump street…
John Taylor- Duran Duran
Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix
Uncle Jesse. Have mer-cyyyy!DeppDonnie WahlbergKirk CameronSlashTom Cruise
Same as @tara. Jason Bateman, the bad boy on Silver Spoons. OMG I would have died for him and the feelings have not changed a bit. Neither has he, still looks the exact same. I think he is the devil in disguise LOL. 2nd is when Nick Rhodes stepped into my world via MTV. Sorry Nick, but that love is long gone. Still like the music but I question what I was thinking when Simon is clearly the hot one.
Shaun Cassidy was the best. So dreamy. Then I hit junior high and Duran Duran. I spent hours sighing over Simon LeBon.
I had a thing for his bro Jon, who is apparently gay. I never had a chance…
Is this the one that was the "SHUSH" guy in Encino Man?
Good one! I was so young, but was sooo sad when he died!
George Michael. I was five years old and I thought his name was Wham. I also thought I would marry Michael Jackson until my Grandmother told me I couldn't because he was black. That was news to me. 🙂
Jane Badler. They were airing V here when I was about 5. My teacher at school told us to draw someone we liked and I drew her with her character name (Diana) in the local spelling. It was several years later that I found the reason I remembered her above all of the actors in the show.
Shawn Cassidy then Rick Springfield then George Michael and Simon LeBon.
Barbara Eden- I dream of Jeannie.
the MonkeesMacaulay CulkinJonathan Taylor ThomasRider Strong
Arnold Schwarzenegger 🙂 still love him x
Burt Ward on "Batman".
Rick Moranis in "Little Shop of Horrors".
Nobody at school ever knew who I was talking about.
Happy Anniversary, Fru!
first ever: Bo Derek
First one once I was old enough to have an idea of what to do with a broad: Heather Locklear. I was probably the only dude in my elementary school who watched Dynasty, just so I could get a weekly dose of her.
Gregory Peck http://totallywould.wordpress.com/2012/05/25/gregory-peck/
they look like my dad 🙁
@Snootches Good eye! Nope, that was his brother Michael 🙂
Memory is a bit foggy, but I think Donny Osmond, Michael Jackson and Tony DeFranco might have all happened at about the same time. And Tony DeFranco's sisters were my first girl crushes I think, tall beautiful brunettes.
Kurt Russell, in the movie The Computer who Wore Tennis Shoes
Shaun CassidyMark hunter (Gallipoli) in a band but more importantly my friends cousin. The 14 year old me was convinced we'd get married.Colin friiels, still is.Colin firth is still on my freebie list.
Then Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins, I guess I dug that hairstyle
George Michael. I was ten, and watching Threes Company was a family event in my house, so when my uncle said GM was gay I assumed that meant he was living with his two backup singer girls (remember them?) and that he had a very crotchety landlord.
I wanted a jumpsuit just like Emma Peel!
@devI'm with u on Slash, even today. Gawd, out in the desert playing his guitar with hat and no shirt? #BESTCHESTVEVAH
(Uncle Jesi – I revealed when I first came here, been there and coulda done that but I declined. BUT that doesn't mean I don't think he was,and still is, hawt. Not trying to brag, got nothing to brag about, just sharing so e tea.)
Hey Jordon T!
Ya, I remember feeling like I was waiting for the just thE right "All Skate" announcenent before I got the nerve to get in and skate with the local talent.They all let me right in, no one pushed me down, and I've had lots of fun with them!! ALL SKATE. ALL SKATE
Shawn Cassidy, Starsky and Hutch
Michael J Fox. Specifically Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties
Dack Rambo when he guested on "Wonder Woman". Then, Christopher Reeve.

This list is giving me the sads, because half of my celeb crushes died young 🙁
Efron needs to get his shit together!
Glitter – you have good taste, Ilya Kuryakin was my first love too. Also loved Kid Curry on Alias Smith & Jones.

Julie Newmar as Catwoman!
Leo. and now im like, gross
I loved Harry Potter so I was super obsessed with Dan Radcliffe.
Still love Harry…
Corey Haim was my first celeb crush. I was 13.
I just remembered…I had a major crush on Emmanuelle Seigner in that movie Frantic. That hair, those eyes. She put me under a spell.
One of my biggest crushes ever was Paula Marshall. Actually I still have a crush on her even though I know she's married to the guy who played Leo's pal in Titanic.
Oh yeah john Taylor I still would! !!!
Count me as another Oldie..Davy Jones of "The Monkees" and David Cassidy.
Then it was Rock n Roll boys after that along with Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson. Gottdamn they gave me lady boners.
Michael was also on Seaquest with Jonathon Brandis
@Snootches +11 Rocky loves Em-i-ly! Excellent list my friend. I had a crush on Bale too but Spot was my boy. I saw your comment about Spot above and mentally high fived you. I confess I have been known to go on YouTube and play the clip of Seize The Day at a loud enough volume to drown out the sound of me singing my little newsie heart out.
David Cassidy. Sigh…
Oh, and Henry Rollins. And Dean Cain! I think I have an old list somewhere…
Haha further back and out of the closet: William Shatner as Captain Kirk. He was kinda hot before his vain side really flowered. Bruce Springsteen when Born to Run first came out. I would've been off down Thunder Road in a heartbeat-
Hell, I wanted to BE Diana Rigg.
Michael Jackson circa "Off the Wall" which was the first album I bought with my my own $$. Before that it was Jimmy the human boy from HR Puf'n'stuf!
The Year of Living Dangerously. An entire movie's worth of lady boners. Oh how sadly people change….
And yes, The Beatles. But I can't remember in what order. I remember the day John died the way some people remember what they were doing when JFK's assasination hit the news.
Giovanni Ribisi on My Two DadsMacaulay Culkin in My Girl
John Travolta. Then Michael Jackson and George Michael. This is embarrassing.
Christopher Reeves!!Then Tom Selleck
Lori Laughlin on Full House.
<—-walked down to a slow, instrumental version of Seize the Day. Yup.
*down the aisle
The guy who played Big George in Fried Greens Tomatoes lol
Jordan Knight and Donnie Wahlberg… all little girls in MA looooved New Kids on the Block!
Yet another oldster here, defintely David Cassidy! 🙂
Robbie Benson. I sent him a fan letter when I was eight and got a reply.
Keith Partridge. I was 5 and my parents said I would squeal when he would come on the screen. Said they knew right then that they would need to keep a close eye on me when I got older. They were right.
What I do remember is Leif Garrett
As a child, George Harrison & Mrs Peel.As a teen, David Bowie.
Weird I was just looking at RP pics today mourning his loss all over again. His death STILL bothers the hell out of me.
River Phoenix. I'm still mourning that one. So much talent down the drain 🙁 I liked his music too.
