We want a list of the 7 people that you crushed on as a teen. They could’ve been teens at the time, or adults, it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that teenage you wished you could’ve been a bit closer to that person.
My “teen” years aren’t that far behind me (less than a decade) but from looking at some of the names on my list, you’d think it was twenty years.
You can’t say no to someone who can be the perfect gentleman in Kate&Leopold AND bad boy Wolverine in X-men. Okay, I know it’s all acting, but he’s really easy on the eyes, and all his money will make up for the fact that he’s seventeen years older than me.
2. Harrison Ford.
He may be seventy, but he’ll always be sexy with that fedora or broom handle mauser–and on the silver screen, he never ages.
|3. Freddie Prinze Jr.|
Staring to notice a theme here. Most of the guys I crushed on are just cute movie actors.I was THAT superficial.
4. Legolas–not to be confused with the actor who plays him.
|Long hair has never looked better on a man.|
LOTR came out in my sophomore year of high school.
Lo and behold, it’s the end of the movie and the screen goes dark, Enya starts singing “May it Be” and I’m like WTH? that’s the end? My brother, who read “The Hobbit” in the fifth grade, leans over and says, “You didn’t know this is a trilogy?”
So I race to the book store and pick up my copy of Tolkien’s three-in-one set and start reading–because I have to know what happens to Legolas. I can’t wait until the next movie is released.
It took me five days to get through the 473k novel.
5. Honorable Mention: Heath Ledger in “A Knight’s Tale”
For spots 6 and 7 I’m going to list celebrities everyone else at my school were crushing on, but whom I wouldn’t touch a 10 foot pole:
|Yes I listened to your music, but there’s no way I’d ever waste a piece of binder paper scribbling my name in a heart with any of your names. It’d be an insult to trees everywhere.|
|The ship sunk, get over it.|
I’ll admit I cried when I saw Titanic. It’s cruel to kill off the hero in any circumstance.
I’ve shared mine, now who are your teen hearthrobs?
