Who was your crush when you were a teenager?

I saw this question asked in one of my magazines and it immediately brought me back to the Rob Lowe poster I had up over my bed. ahhh....memories.

When I was a very young teen, I had a huge crush on Jerry Lewis. No kidding. And not the Jerry Lewis of that time either, but of the sixties. I worshipped him. All the more bizarre when you consider I'm in my early twenties. Always wondered why I've felt so at home in France...

Rick Savage from Def Leppard. That was 15 years ago and now he still has the same haircut and could use a little Peer Trainer himself, if you know what I mean. PS if I had a satin David Cassidy jacket I would wear it all the time.

At 19, I adored Richard Dean Anderson. At 25, Matt Ashford

Now, I still think Richard and Matt are sexy and hot, but I have room for the younger ones too... Heath Ledger... yum.

I guess I'm a little older than those that have commented so far...

MY crushes were:
Bobby Sherman
Donny Osmond
Davy Jones (the Monkeys)
Mick Jagger

Anyone remember Teen Beat Magazine with all the posters in each issue?

Anyway - when I was about 13 or 14 I had a huge Mick Jagger poster and I'd get my little sister (12 yrs younger than me) to kiss the poster! We (ok I) still laugh about that!!!!

Oh yeah, I remember Jon-Erik Hexum. The guy who shot himself in a game of Russian Roulette, wasn't he?

Personally, in my younger teens it was Harrison Ford (as Han Solo, of course).

Memories ...

This thread made me chuckle and brought a smile to my face ... I had my walls and ceiling plastered with all sorts of posters from the teen mags ... but I think ONE of my favorites was:

Shawn Cassidy - I remember playing his album over and over ... the Da Doo Ron Ron and That's Rock 'N' Roll, hahaha too funny!

Rick Savage from Def Leppard was so hot, and so was Joe!!!! God, have you seen Joe latley? He still looks the same did in the 80's, not married either.. I think I might plan a trip to England and find out where he lives.. (0;

Yes, Def Leppard ruled in the 80's and they still rule now.. Just went to their concert out here in British Columbia, Canada, and they still rock!
