My Childhood Crushes: Where Are They Now?
Looking back on who I had crushes on in my pre-teen years, I got curious about what on earth they're all doing now. For some reason, though, I seem to only remember liking minor characters or child TV actors that have disappeared. I think I even had a minor crush on that little kid that played Anakin in Star Wars! Anyway, below are listed some of my biggest celebrity crushes, but you've got to help a girl out: Add yours below in the comments! Tom Felton aka Draco Malfoy I was totally more in love with Tom than Daniel, and to be honest - I still am. He's currently married (or engaged?) to his loooooooooong time girlfriend and still randomly will call Daniel Radcliffe just to say "Potter" in his trademark Malfoy voice. He's acting more and more and it just a generally awesome dude. Still love you Tom!!! Nick Carter aka the best member of the Backstreet Boys Well, he had a big rough patch with drug abuse and rehab and the whole 'fallen celebrity' bit, but now he's cleaning up his act. He recently got married and he is back on tour with the Backstreet Boys!!! Can you believe Millennium turned 16 this year!? Patrick Stump aka lead singer of Fall Out Boy His voice. Dear God. I remember the first time I heard 'Sugar We're Going Down' and I nearly fell to the floor. From his solo work to the new FOB material, he's just getting better and better. He also got rid of his sideburns which is great. Lee Thompson Young aka Jett Jackson He was one of the coolest actors on Disney Channel when I was young enough to watch it and I was so in love. Unfortunately, Young was suffering from bipolar disorder and committed suicide in 2013. He left behind some great work and I still think of him as one of my favorite childhood actors. Ethan Peck aka Michel from Passport to Paris Let's be honest, I had a crush on every guy that has ever been in a Mary Kate and Ashley movie. Ethan played my favorite character though, and he still has the same cute smile. But did you know HE'S NOT FRENCH. We were LIED to! and last but certainly not least Leonardo DiCaprio aka LEONARDO DICAPRIO Still adorable, still an incredible actor, and still one of my favorite celebrities ever. He's a pro at messing with the paparazzi, he made the man bun cool, and he will always be my favorite Romeo.
Proof That Emma Watson Is The Most Perfect Starlet Role Model
We all know our little Hermione Granger; a pushy, intelligent, know-it-all who is 100% the reason Harry was able to defeat Voldemort. So how could we think that the actress who played our favorite hero could be anything less then amazing? Since filming has wrapped up Emma Watson has used her star power for good, becoming a perfect role model for young girls and boys, fighting for gender equality, helping create the He ForShe campaign, and even speaking at the U.N. How very Hermione of her. So here is just a few of her many perfect quotes that are undeniable evidence that she is one of the most amazing female role models of our generation. One of the greatest things about Harry Potter was it taught girls that they do not have to wait to be saved. Emma Watson brings this idea into reality by believing that girls can and should be warriors! I will fight till my last breath that Hermione is the only reason Voldemort didn't make a come back. Sometimes it is really hard to believe in yourself when everyone feels the need to chime in with their opinions. Emma reminds us that you will never please everyone so you might as well please yourself. Magazines drive me nuts! Photoshop coupled with the celebs huge bank account which can be used for plastic surgery touch ups and designer clothes makes it impossible for girls to compare. Having a role model that is comfortable in their skin makes it easier for other people to find that same comfort. Sometimes girls need to be reminded to cut ourselves some slack. When we expect to look like the fake pictures on magazines its hard not to be disappointed. Emma's version of sexy doesn't involve micro minis and crop tops. She believes that less is more and if you dress in what makes you comfortable then everyone will see how beautiful you look. Its a refreshing outlook on sexy for those girls who love sweaters and jeans. Have confidence in yourself and Dare to be Different! Just because you aren't into getting drunk every weekend or Orange is the New Black, doesn't make you a loser. Like what you like, its a waste of your time to pretend to be something you're not. In a world where its all about looks, the smart quitter girls sometimes feel pushed to the side. Don't act dumb just because you think that it'll land you the guy. Because pretending he's right all the time will get old really quick. Plus you deserve better. Just thank you! I hate when people try too talk about feminism when they don't even know the real definition. And Emma (like Hermione) presents her points perfectly. She is articulate and well prepared. Feminism is too often considered a "female" issue. Emma Watson includes everyone in the fight for equality, which is brilliant because isolating half of the population will not work for anyone. You are bloody brilliant Emma Watson. Hermione would be so proud (and a tad bit jealous).
