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.
