Childhood Celebrity Crush

Thursday, January 16, 2014

I have no idea what sparked these memories but the other day I started thinking about my childhood celebrity crushes. I had my first celebrity crush at the ripe old age of 12. I was in the 6th grade and madly in love with Jonathan Taylor Thomas, or more affectionately know to those who loved him, as JTT.

I had this actual image hanging in my room circa 1994.
So all-consuming was my infatuation with the star of Home Improvement that I brought a framed photo (cut from of my beloved Tiger Beat magazine) of lover-boy with me to 6th grade camp -- which I proudly displayed next to my bunk. (it should be no surprise to anyone at this point that I was most definitely not in the cool girl cabin.)

I celebrity crushed pretty hard until late middle school when I got a real-life, not-famous, and actually-knows-my-name-and-lives-in-my-hometown boyfriend. During my cleb-love period my favorites included:

Jonathan Brandis of Sea Quest fame.

Devon Sawa

Don't remember him?
Think Friendly Ghost, Christina Ricci...
Prince William

Not so much because I thought he was a hottie...I just really wanted to be a princess.
I always told my family he would marry a commoner!
And, finally, the only crush that lasted:
I'm a long-time Christian Bale fan.
Ever since those first high notes in Newsies.

Who was your childhood celebrity crush?

Cute!! Have you seen Jonathan Taylor Thomas when he appeared in the last season or Last Man Standing?

I have to admit that Christian Bale was one of mine, too.

But the one I was convinced I was going to marry was Harrison Ford. I used to write his name all over the mirror when the shower fogged it up! :)

Oh goodness, now I feel old, although I must say that JTT was always a cutie patootie! :-) My crushes included:

Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains)
Michael J. Fox (Family Ties)
Ricky Schroder (Silver Spoons)

I crushed on these boys too because my big sister did! Haha. Remember howe we loved watching Sea Quest Sunday nights :)) Although I was a Prince Harry fan. At the time he was lesser famous, young, and underrated.
