Top 5 Thursdays - Celebrity Crushes

I love the Top 5 Thursdays that Meghan from The Perfect Compilation Tape has been hosting! Last week was music, this week men. Doesn't get any better! So let me break it down. This is my list of childhood crushes...a few spill over into adulthood...but all of these "hunks" I adored in elementary school and junior high. No particular order...


JTT: I don't think Jonathan Taylor Thomas needs an intro. My walls were lined with BOP and Tiger Beat posters of the smart ass son of Tim the Tool Man Taylor on Home Improvement. He still looks the same today. That little boy face...and height...poor thing.



Jonathan Brandis: Meghan and I actually share a love for Mr. Brandis. He was so cute and I was obsessed with all of his movies! I even had - OK probably still have, somewhere - a Seaquest figurine. Unfortunately we lost him to suicide when he was just a young man :( Such a tragic story.



Nick Hexum: My first rocker crush, of many. From the moment I laid eyes on Nick Hexum who had bleached hair and wore wife beaters and Dr. Martins (hey it was the 90s don't judge!) I was in love! That was when I was 12, now I am 27 and still think he's the hottest guy in.the.world. Yes, obsessed to this day ;)



Ben Affleck: Armageddon. I had posters of Ben Affleck in his space suit and another of him as a "dirty roughneck". Um Bruce Willis - leave him alone! Isn't is obvious why Liv Tyler loves him?! OK Armageddon isn't real, but my (continued) adoration for him is!



Thomas Ian Nicholas: Remember Rookie of the Year? I sure do! I was in elementary school and I couldn't stop thinking about the lead actor. What was wrong with me? I soon realized he was my first crush ever! Like JTT, Thomas didn't really get much taller either haha. He's an attractive enough guy and was cute in the American Pie movies but he just doesn't do it for me anymore.


Go link up over at The Perfect Compliation Tape to join in on the fun!


P.S. Does anyone else have trouble editing posts on a PC? This took me two hours to format...and still look like poo :( My Mac is fine...

If I can swing it (time-wise), I'm totally gonna post about this later. I wanted to do it this morning but promised my sis I'd post about her etsy shop discount, and today's kinda crazy with my students' big event. But celeb crushes are one of my favorite things to talk about! Even funnier, my list would be SO DIFFERENT than yours, ha! :)

Lindsay said...

hahahah love this list, though I'd have to add Devon Sawa to :)

Megan said...

where is devon sawa?! just kidding! this brought back sooo many memories ;-)

Total flashback! I was confused for a brief second and then realized these were old photos. Duh.

Sorry to hear about your posting challenges - that is so frustrating (and time consuming). I haven't been having any problems lately, so maybe your computer is just having a bad day.

Allison said...

Omg, this list is bringing back my childhood in the best way possible! I STILL have a serious crush on Thomas Ian Nicholas. Did you ever see that movie when he goes back in time to the Middle Ages? SO CUTE.
And JTT will always have my heart.
Also, Andrew Keegan was big on my list - I'm still convinced he's my soulmate! (And by soulmate, I mean that I think he's gorgeous and we would have pretty babies together).
This post is 100% perfection.

Allison said...

Also, I love YOU.

tara said...

ooohhh JTT! definitely loved him back in the day! :)

meghan said...

Oh my gosh. JTT. Loved him. In 5th or 6th grade me and my friends would bring the BOP and Tiger Beat to school and look at them before school in the cafeteria. They were so much fun. I actually saw one of my middle schoolers with one the other day, and I didn't even know they still published those magazines!

Alyson said...

Meghan said...

Thank you so much for the link-up, my dear! I cannot believe someone else loved Jonathan Brandis as much as I did! I thought I was the only one!

You are too sweet. I hope you have wonderful weekend!

Ashley said...

My crush as a young girl was also Jonathan Brandis! Oh how I loved him. It all started with The Neverending Story II. Awww. Such a cutie. I was so sad when he died.

I have and always probably will count Ben Affleck as my number one celeb crush. He has always always been so dreamy. Swoon. We just watched the Town, and hew was looking super fine with speckles of grey in that hair.

One embarrassing crush from my younger years? The guy from Free Willy. Ha. I watched that movie a million times. ;)

Mimi said...

JTT. AKA my lover. He was SO fantastic on Home Improvement. I was big on Rider Strong, AKA Shawn from Boy Meets world, and Steve from Full House. Brilliant.

Leesh said...

Ben Affleck is still my crush. The other weekend I had to watch Armageddon. I love that movie and it just gets me every time.

I remember that guy from The Rookie and JTT. I wonder where they are now and what they are doing.

Jules said...

Aw, man I should have done this one. So fun! Last week just completely got away from me. I'm somehow not familiar with Jonathan Brandis, but Geof just told me some stuff he was in. I'm with you on Ben Affleck. He was such a hottie, especially in Armageddon. I get the rocker thing and Nick Hexum is pretty hot ;)
