    Who was your teenage crush?

    I have two step-daughters and they are both in the throes of wild crushes on two celebrities that are, IMO, yucky. The pre-teen is wild over Justin Timberlake (yuck!) and the 15 y.o. is gaga over Darren Hayes (another wannabe popster from Savage Garden).

    I started thinking about the celebs I was interested in when I was a kid, and all I can come up with was John Taylor from Duran Duran (but who wasn't into him?)... and Lance Mountain, a skateboard god. I actually still have a little crush on Lance Mountain, but whatever...

    So I was thinking since we are mostly around the same age here... who were your celebrity crushes when you were a pre-teen/teenager?

    man i had it bad for that whole idea
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    No one thought Donny (aka the "bad boy") from New Kids was hot? I also seemed to have a crush on one the guy who played "Gilbert" in Anne of Green Gables.. does anyone know who I'm talking about?
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Yeah... Jonathan Crombie... I dug him too, especially after watching the end to the first movie. That whole "carrots" thing at the end made my little teenage heart go pitter pat. Lol... I totally forgot about him!

    Here is a pic, just for you Tex... this is what he looks like now. And uh... he is Canadian, so you could always use him as your avatar next week.

    Do I win a prize for knowing who the two Corey's are? hahhaha I LUH-UVED Corey Haim, and my sister loved Corey Feldman. They just don't make movies like Lost Boys, License to Drive, Dream A Little Dream anymore...

    Goonies, anyone? Another favorite...

    He's hot, thats who!!

    He was the little brother in Lost Boys (80's vampire movie with Keifer Sutherland). Ummm...you know, I can't remember what else besides the ones I already mentioned.

    They did an E tv biography thingy on him...wow, was he whacked out.

    I forgot to add my other favorite...Axl Rose. Don't ask me why, but he rocks! That was more of a older teen, young adult type of thing...

    Lance Mountain..with those catepillar eyebrows?!?...just kidding. He was my favorite skater when I was a teenager. I even got to meet him (and some other pros) in Chicago at a Bad Religion concert and he was super cool. Never did have a crush on him though

    My crushes were the chick who played Samantha on Gimme A Break, Dana Plato, Carrie Fisher, Mary Lou Retton, and Kerri Green, the redhead from Goonies, Lucas, and some other 80s movies...oh and Mia Sara, who played Sloane in Ferris Buller's Day Off....

    I called his little dance the "chicken dance" because I thought he looked like a chicken when it scratches the ground. LOL

    As a teen, various porn stars, (just being honest) when I was younger- Wonder Woman was the hottest. I was only 6 or 7 yrs. old and I wanted her -I was in love with her.

    I guess I'm the oldie here, since I haven't ever heard of half the celebs already mentioned. But maybe some of the newbies will be in the same boat about the pre-teen hotties from my day: Davey Jones (shades of Marcia Brady!), the Cowsills (so embarrasing now), Sajid Khan (guy from India on a show with Jay North a/k/a Dennis the Menace).
