Wow! We’re a third of the way through already, it doesn’t seem like it though. If you want to catch up on the previous days’ posts you can start from day 1 here.
I sort of touched on the subject of today’s post back on day 2, your first celebrity crush. Now, this is going to be quite a cringe-inducing post, for me at least, but I challenge anyone to NOT have a cringy first celeb crush. 🤣
If you remember when I was talking about adopting an orca, back on day 2, I mentioned that I had also fallen for Jason James Richter. If you don’t know who that is, he was the lead in the Free Willy movies, playing Jesse.
I had posters all over my wall of him for a year or so, before he was replaced with various other stereotypical celebrity crushes, Nick Carter from Backstreet Boys and Leo DiCaprio in his Romeo & Juliet days.
Now, its always interesting, but not always a good thing, to check up on your younger crushes, to see how time has treated them. Particularly if they’ve been out of the mainstream for a while. – another teenage crush of mine, Edward Furlong, did not age so well. So, this morning, I looked up a recent picture of JJR…
This is a picture of him in a role he played last year. The movie was called High and Outside. Not quite the cute, floppy-haired beach boy that I remember from the 90s. Oh dear.
An honourable mention should go to another celebrity I thought was cute when I was younger. Not so much of a crush, but there was definitely a soft spot for Joe Mazzello.He played Tim in Jurassic Park back in 1993. he’s aged significantly better
Who was your first celebrity crush? Are they as cringy as mine? How have they aged over the years? Leave me a comment below. And don’t forget, if you’re enjoying the series to follow the blog either here on WordPress, or Follow my blog with Bloglovin
