I need a new heartthrob!!

When I was younger, I had a new crush practically every day…

Jared Rushton Jared Rushton. You might remember him from BIG, Overboard, or Honey I Shrunk The Kids. I think I liked his button nose. When you’re ten it’s all about a “cute smile” and stuff like that. I even wrote him a fan letter, but did he write back? Nooooo. What ever happened to him anyway?

The Boys The Boys. Come on, doesn’t anybody remember that song “Dial My Heart”? It was the best! Actually, I thought the whole album was great. I think I wrote them a lot of fanmail too, telling them that I specifically wanted to marry the two boys on the left of the album cover. Once again, I did not hear a reply. What gives? And where the hell are they now?


William McNamara William McNamara. I watched Stealing Home about a hundred times because of him. He had this sexy, puppy dog expression that drove me wild! Now, I can’t believe I’m admitting to this, but I even paused the movie on a shot of him and took Polaroid pictures of the TV to hang on my wall! Is that obsessive, or what? I also rented the movie Wildflower because of him, and it turned out to be so cute–one of Reese Witherspoon’s first movies.


Pete Sampras

Pete Sampras My parents are avid tennis fans, and one year we went to the US Open, and I saw Pete Sampras play. It was love at first sight. I married him (in my imagination, at least!), and got a subscription to Tennis Monthly to stay up to date on his career. The love faded when he retired and just started getting hairier and hairier.

Josh Hartnett Josh Hartnett. For the last few years I’ve been pretty in love with Josh Hartnett. It’s so obvious. He’s cute, great body, nice smile, sexy voice, pretty good actor. Let me put it this way, I’ve told Andy that if I ever see or meet Josh Hartnett, I am going to have to leave Andy and run away with him. I figure the chances are slim to none, but I wanted to put it out there.


The list goes on and on. But I haven’t had a new crush for a while. It’s been Josh Hartnett for, like, 7 years. It’s getting boring! Sure, I watch movies and TV shows and think the stars are cute, but nobody that I’d want a poster of on my wall. Maybe it’s just that I’m not 17 anymore and I’ve grown out of that phase—but I refuse to believe that! I’m open to suggestions.
Who’s your hunky celebrity crush?

    You are a very brave girl, admitting to those crushes. I remember them all – and the polaroid!
    I can’t think of anyone I’m really crushing on right now, but I’m about to watch the “Poseidon Adventure” re-make because of Josh Lucas…we’ll see how long that lasts.

    ah, pete sampras.

    i used to have an ENORMOUS josh hartnett poster on my wall. i drew hearts on it and would wave at it coquettishly to practice my flirting skills.

    needless to say, i was truly the coolest pre-teen ever.

    I must say, you have had some obscure crushes. I am totally into Adrian Grenier right now. Hottie.

    eBay is pure shopping evilness, that and etsy.com

    That is so funny that you’d say Adrian Genier–he went to my College and we all drooled at him from afar…
    Yeah, my tastes are kinda weird. I like to mix it up.
    Thanks for the shopping tips. Never heard of etsy.com, but I’m SO there!

  5. My sister and I loved the movie Wildflower!

    Thanks for dropping by the Bildungsroman book blog. Pleasure to officially “meet” you.

    I pay Josh Hartnett $1000/month to stay more than 500 yards away from you at all times. That’s why can I act so cool about it.

    He said he was really into you but, y’know… he needs the money for hair gel.

    I’m in love with your site!
    And yes, Wes Anderson is bomb.com

    You should really check out my post from February titled “Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me…?”. It lists 19 of the hunkiest males on the face of the earth. Check it out!

    Josh Hartnet is my love!! I always seem to forget about him and Michael Phelps when I make my “hot guy” lists!!! I am waaay outta line….

    Jack Johnson, Kelly Slater, or the guy who played Samantha’s boyfriend on Sex and the City and now plays a gay guy on Brothers and Sisters… Jason somebody. He’s HOT

    Josh Harnett in that picture looks like Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles…now you know how old I am AND who was my heartthrob.
