Vic Caswell, Emily White and Sarah Ahiers hosted the Teenage Heartthrob blogfest yesterday. It was fun to click around when I got home from work and see all the people that made one's teen heart race. I saw Jared Leto, Elijah Wood, Heath Ledger, Christians Bale and Slater, Jonathon Taylor Thomas and a Gwen Stefani. A great group of hotties to be sure.
I was teen in the 80's, yes I am an old bag. So here are my teen hearthrobs from back in the day.
The entire cast of The Outsiders
Oh, My. God. Back in 1983, I was a squealing tween in love with each and every one of these guys. I mean come on, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Ralph Macchio and C. Thomas Howell. Holy Guacamole!
He made my heart go thumpity-thump as Wesley in my fave film, Princess Bride as well as the first time I ever saw him opposite Helena Bonham Carter in Lady Jane. Then when he donned the blue in Glory...Hell to the yeah!
There are no words. I have loved him since I first saw him in 21 Jump Street and as poor Glenn, who gets killed by his bed in A Nightnare on Elm Street.
This was my boy band. Simon, Nick, John, Andy and Roger, what a quintet of deliciousness.
So who were some of your crushes? Go here to see more of the participants.
