It took mere moments for me to come up with my top five celebrity crushes of all time.
I’ll try to go chronologically but some may overlap as I did most of my crushing in high school.
Top Five Celebrity Crushes
Top Five All-Time Celebrity Crushes
Jared Leto. But not just 30 Seconds to Mars Jared Leto. I’m talking My So-Called Life Jared Leto. OH how I loved him. I even ripped a picture of him out of my Seventeen magazine and had it up on my bedroom wall. Appropriately hidden from my siblings, of course.
Ryan Phillipe. I don’t know what it was about his role in Cruel Intentions that I found so captivating but the bad boy thing really did it for me I guess. And the fact that he married Reese Witherspoon was, like, awesome. But then he divorced her so that wasn’t as awesome. Oh, plus I haven’t liked any of his films since so I suppose it was just a shallow affection I felt.
Joaquin Phoenix. I don’t know, he’s just a classy guy. (Plus isn’t he married to Reese Witherspoon?) I think he’s a talented actor plus very good looking. Also I think there’s something in me that thinks of River Phoenix every time I look at him and feel sad and nostalgic. Also I really like how he can sing like a better Johnny Cash. That’s pretty neat.
OK, here’s a big one
MxPx. The whole band. Well, except Yuri. I have never seen a band so many times as I’ve seen MxPx. I had every album, knew every song, had the shirts, had the merch, had the signatures. And I even ran into Mike in the Denver airport once. But, sadly, he did not immediately fall for me. I think this crush lasted a good decade, maybe longer. I don’t know what it was about the band—maybe it was because it was my first punk CD, perhaps I just really connected with what they sang about—but man I loved them. In fact, I distinctly remember thinking “There will never be a time when I don’t love MxPx.”
Tom Welling. OK this one doesn’t make ANY sense. Not only have I never seen anything he’s in (nope, not even Smallville) but I don’t know anything about him. And yet, I was semi-obsessed with Tom Welling (at least his name) for a good year or two. I even refused to call my friend’s cat by its name, instead preferring “Tom Welling.” Is that creepy or what?
So there we go. Any revelations? Surprises? Did I miss one? And (most importantly) who’s your celebrity crush?

One more thing. I think you’ll enjoy my free resource library. This is where I keep my files, downloads, ebooks, worksheets and whatever else I manage to create. I love sharing what I learn and want to keep adding to this library so it becomes a wealth of helpful goodness.
