random thursday: 1st celebrity crushes

Thursday, September 27, 2012


'Random' is my middle name so when I stumbled across this bloggess trifecta and their totally fun link-up I just knew I'd have to partake. This week's topic is terribly embarrassing and perhaps counts as a confessions post?


He's pretty much the only reason I tuned into 'My So Called Life' week after week; something about him made me want to plaster cut outs of his face all over my day planner in grade 9. He was like the 90's version of Twilight's Edward only with nicer eyes.

Oh how teenage me loved a pretty boy face and no boy was prettier than Mr. Freddie Prinze Jr. himself; with that flawless skin and perfectly plucked brow... I was swooning with envy. Let it be known that 'She's All That' was a strong contender for my #1 favourite movie in high school second only to the impossible tie between 'Pretty Woman' and 'Dirty Dancing'. 


Please tell me you remember Young & Modern magazine? I'm pretty sure I had a subscription for like 5 years straight and couldn't flip to the mortifying reader confessions fast enough - you know me and my love affair with humiliating stories {mine included}. Anyways Leo was definitely on my 'I heart him so much' list - Basketball Diaries, Romeo & Juliet, Titanic? I would have given anything to be his leading lady back in day... including my v-card.


I had such a girl crush on Keri Russel in high school it's not even funny. I pretty much wanted to be her - only 'pre-med NYU student Felicity Porter' her. Aside from our crazy hair we had absolutely nothing in common, but that didn't stop me from sketching her Golden Globe gown as my fantasy prom dress or sporting her curly top knot a decade before it became trendy and trying to replicate her dorm-chic style with every Le Chateau pay check.


P.S. - I was a loyal Team Ben fan.

P.S.S. - while I'm no longer taping posters of Jared, Freddie or Leo on my walls, my crush on Miss Russell remains {stronger than ever}.

is she seriously not SO cute?! {source}

I'll have a girl crush on you too if you quickly throw me a VOTE

I totally forgot about Freddie! He was so dreamy.

This is a fun post! My first celebrity crush was definitely Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

I always wondered what happened to YM magazine. I subscribed to it for EVER. And Seventeen. until I turned 17, and decided that it was lame. But Kerri Russell... that woman is so timeless. She just keeps getting better, year after year!

Katrin said...

I never missed an episode of My So Called Life! I even have it on DVD. :)

Dude, you picked some great ones! Probably should've given mine some more thought...oh well. I'm definitely with you on the Leonardo Dicaprio crush. I know some people think he's totally overrated but he's not, I dont care what anyone says. Dudes' talented & hot. The end.

Thanks joining us this week & linking up!

Dude, Felicity Porter? LOVE HER! Oh, I mean Keri Russel. Except she's always Felicity in my mind. And, yes, I was totally team Ben. Still am. God, you have great taste.
