I've Got a Crush On You...

Well, since it's no big secret ANYWHERE that I love men, I thought I would take a trip down memory lane to some of the school girl crushes I had when I was younger. The following 13 are some of the men who made my heart pitter-patter (as always, in no particular order). And I've tried getting rid of this huge gap between this paragraph and the table below, but can't do it. Looks like I need another semester in Professor Bond's Blogging class.

Thirteen Things about ANGELL'S CRUSHES

13. Tom Cruise - I don't care how crazy he is these days, I don't know of any woman who didn't melt back in 1987 when Maverick made his first apperance in that flight suit. SIGH - he was, and still is, one of the hottest men in Hollywood.

12. Kirk Cameron - ok, raise your hands laides - how many of you watched GROWING PAINS for the wonderful life lessons it taught us? Put your hands down cuz YOU'RE LYING. We all watched it for the curly haired teen God who was the beginning of the "good - bad boy" craze in TV land. Too bad his looks faded a little with time, but his acting improved.

11. Michael J. Fox - Alex P. Keaton wasn't high on my list of sex symbols, BUT Marty McFly was. I sat through every installment of Back to the Future just for his smile. And he's a Canuck to boot. As he got older, he got better looking. I still love him to this day.

10. Carlo Imperato - I know I can't be the only one who watched FAME and had the hots for Danny Amatullo. He was so adorable, I think he might have been responsible for jump starting my passion for performing. Thankfully Fame is on in re-runs and I can see the man on my tv every day at 5pm!

9. Johnny Depp - from a young, undercover cop in a Fox show to one of the hottest, most respected, and most versatile actor of his generation this man never fails to set my heart racing. I've seen just about everything the man has done, and I have yet to be disappointed.

8. Gowan - A.K.A Lawrence Gowan. For those of you out there who haven't heard of this guy you really should check him out. I first fell in love with him back in 1984, and that was just his voice. When I saw his two-toned mullet and his crazy videos, well, I fell harder. These days, he's singing with....wait for it....STYX. Yes I said Styx. (I actually took this picture at the SOCAN press conference back in 2003)

7. Bruce Springsteen - since mentioning him in my last TT, I've watched Dancing in the Dark at least twenty times on youtube. The verdict is - SEXIEST VIDEO EVER!! How any red-blooded female could watch that and NOT get the screaming thigh sweats (pardon my crudeness) is beyond my comprehension.

6. Jonathan Knight - my favourite of the NKOTB. He wasn't flashy like Jordan, but he was quiet and shy - and for some reason I found that very attractive. Of course, his dreamy eyes and smile had a LOT to do with that too.

5. Christopher Atkins - remember The Blue Lagoon? Me neither - but what I do remember is a little known movie that spoofed on The Pirates of Penzance called The Pirate Movie. His curly hair and blue eyes, and of course that smile that would melt an iceburg - and the movie's not bad either. I highly recommend it (you'll laugh your onion off).

4. Matthew & Gunnar Nelson - I know, that's two - but back in the day, you couldn't tell them apart. And they were so pretty (ok guys, don't shoot me...) Since then, they've gotten haircuts, and since I've gotten to know them a bit, they're quite easy to tell apart. Still two of them most amazing individuals I've ever had the priviledge to meet.

3. Patrick Dempsey - When he was the biggest geek in Can't Buy Me Love - he was adorable. And I was the only one out of my friends who thought so. Looks like I made a good call, cuz who knew he'd grow up to be so....SIGH...McDreamy? Just goes to prove - be nice to geeks....

2. Sean Astin - I guess I liked the geeks and the outcasts, cuz I fell for this boy when he starred in The Goonies - asthma puffer and all. He's still gorgeous today, and, like Kirk, his acting has improved tremendously. Unfortunately for him, he'll never outshine his hobbit role...

1. Alan Alda - Everybody's favourite doctor. I watched M*A*S*H every chance I got with my dad. I think I've seen every episode at least eighteen times. I loved his bedside manner, and often wished he was my doctor. Still do sometimes....

Well, I'm not gonna comment on a list of guys a gal crushes on. But I did want you to know I was here and read your list.


Wait - Sean Astin was awesome as Samwise!! And I liked him in a ridiculous movie about prep school kids who get held hostage - was it called Toy Soldiers???

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Yes Toy Soldiers I think

And I agre.. no comment on your selections... just a I was here

Angell said...

Well, I LOVED Toy Soldiers, but LOTR was his most brilliant performance ever - I don't think he can top that. Although I will see everything he does to watch him try.

And I love the fact that the two MEN in the SP at least read my blog - meanwhile, none of the ladies are around...

Thanks boys.

Well, my breath stopped when I saw that pic of Johnny Depp. Wonderful list, Angell. Sorry I missed it yesterday.

**bounces through** I love M.A.S.H!!!! It was, and is, a wonderful show! Hugs!

You forgot Uncle Jesse...tsk, tsk, tsk.

I never cared for Kirk Cameron that much - he always annoyed me. But Johnny Depp - :thud:


With love and pride
