First Celeb Crushes



When I was about seven years old, I had a massive crush on Bo Duke (John Schneider) of the TV show The Dukes of Hazard. I loved his hair, his derriere, and the way he drove the General Lee.

Then, when I got a few years older, I thought Michael Jordan was soooo cool. And cute. And amazing at my favorite sport, basketball. I loved how he handled the ball and how he tended to stick out his tongue when he shot.

A few more years down the road, I started crushing on Antonio Banderas. And I have to admit that I still think Antonio is adorable, especially as Zorro and Puss in Boots (on Shrek).
Looking at these guys, you'd be hard pressed to define my "type." But interestingly enough, many of the qualities I found so tantalizing in them are in my husband. Great hair (when we first met, 15 years ago, but he also makes a darling near-bald guy), nice butt, great singer, amazing athlete, sticks tongue out when concentrating, sexy dad, etc.
I'd love to hear who your earliest celeb crushes were, and if you still have a thing for any of them. Don't be shy!

I used to have a thing for Karl Malone back in the Stockton and Malone days...

Have to agree about Antonio Banderas, but Bo Duke???
*shakes head*

I know, kind of funny about Bo. But then again, I was REALLY young. And guess what? I've "met" Karl Malone face-to----er, chest, and OMG is he handsome. I swear, his biceps were bigger than my thighs. His wife is gorgeous, too. We were at a charity thing and he told me congrat's on being pregnant. I walked around with a smile the rest of the evening.

Leif Garrett had my little heart going all pitter patter. Oh, and Parker Stevens from the Hardy Boys!

I'm with Amanda- Leif Garrett and Parker Stevenson, but add in John Travolta and, um, okay I'll admit it, Adam Ant.
