River Phoenix. I'm still mourning that one. So much talent down the drain 🙁 I liked his music too.
Weird I was just looking at RP pics today mourning his loss all over again. His death STILL bothers the hell out of me.
As a child, George Harrison & Mrs Peel.As a teen, David Bowie.
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
Robbie Benson. I sent him a fan letter when I was eight and got a reply.
Yet another oldster here, defintely David Cassidy! 🙂
Jordan Knight and Donnie Wahlberg… all little girls in MA looooved New Kids on the Block!
The guy who played Big George in Fried Greens Tomatoes lol
*down the aisle
<—-walked down to a slow, instrumental version of Seize the Day. Yup.
Lori Laughlin on Full House.
Christopher Reeves!!Then Tom Selleck
John Travolta. Then Michael Jackson and George Michael. This is embarrassing.
Giovanni Ribisi on My Two DadsMacaulay Culkin in My Girl
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.
The Year of Living Dangerously. An entire movie's worth of lady boners. Oh how sadly people change….
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!
Hell, I wanted to BE Diana Rigg.
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-
Oh, and Henry Rollins. And Dean Cain! I think I have an old list somewhere…
David Cassidy. Sigh…
@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.
Michael was also on Seaquest with Jonathon Brandis
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.
Oh yeah john Taylor I still would! !!!
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.
Corey Haim was my first celeb crush. I was 13.
Still love Harry…
I loved Harry Potter so I was super obsessed with Dan Radcliffe.
Leo. and now im like, gross
Julie Newmar as Catwoman!
Shawn Cassidy. That album cover was DREAMY.
Linda Carter, in the Wonder Woman suit
David Bowie in The Labyrinth.
Glitter – you have good taste, Ilya Kuryakin was my first love too. Also loved Kid Curry on Alias Smith & Jones.
Rolf – I wanted to be Emma Peel and marry a secret agent. Hmm I haven't grown up much since I was 15.
Get well soon Fru & happy anniversary from another child of the 70's.
Efron needs to get his shit together!
This list is giving me the sads, because half of my celeb crushes died young 🙁
Ooooo I forgot about Brad Renfro! I was in LOVE with him. RIP
