As I pondered how to start off a new year of Hot Dishes, my mind wondered back to my girlhood days. Thinking about the crushes I had as a girl brought a smile to face. Once particular crush has stayed with me throughout the years. It was the early 1980s when I first saw this gorgeous man. He was a young actor on a daytime soap opera and he took my breath away. It wasn't just that he was nice looking, had great hair and beautiful eyes. Nope, it was his smile that won me from the start. And that smile is still there. Personally, I believe that John Stamos has aged quite well!!!
So, dear reader, do you have a girlhood crush that still makes your heart beat a little faster? I would love to hear about it!
My very first crush was actually a character from a book- Prince Caspian from the Narnia series. At the age of 9 I loved him so!ReplyDelete
My first real-life crush was the English actor Michael Praed, who was playing Robin Hood in the TV series.... Swoooooon!
Wow, that man is just like fine wine, he just got better with age.ReplyDelete
My crush Robert Redford athletic with that beautiful, engaging smile!ReplyDelete
Mark Harmon too!
M first crush was with someone I worked with and became friends. It lasted years even after I was married then it became a warm feeling. I ran into him at the Mall with his children and it was just nice to see him again nice is the nice is just the feeling I receivedReplyDelete
Chad Everett from the television show, Medical Center, as Dr. Joe Gannon. Be still my heart.ReplyDelete
I totally agree! I had a HUGE crush on John Stamos. I think I watched every episode of Full House just because he was on there. There was another movie he played in much later where he was the creepy bad guy. I couldn't watch it because there was no way I wanted that image in my head. :)ReplyDelete
I have to admit up front, though, that my first crush was Johnny Depp in 21 Jump Street. I still watch everything he's in. He has certainly aged well. ;)
OK, I'm going to date myself with this, but here goes. I had a huge crush on Tony Dow on "Leave it to Beaver." What a hunk. I still remember watching that show and wanting to push the Beaver aside so I could see his older brother. Sigh..ReplyDelete
Oh, yes! My loves ran the lines of Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Peter Fonda. They have grown to include Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr. Jude Law...o, I could go on forevr!ReplyDelete
My very first crush would have had to been Elvis, thought his music was awesome, then there was The Monkeys. Then later in life it was Sam Elliott, Keven Costner,and we can't leave out George Clooney.ReplyDelete
Jane The Booklady, I can totally understand you affection for Prince Caspian!! That series is wonderful.ReplyDelete
Dianna, I see that you agree with me :-)ReplyDelete
Laurie, I still enjoy Mark Harmon ... every single week on NCIS.ReplyDelete
Marciab, how sweet that still have a nice feeling about your first crush. My first crush on a local boy ended with him growing up to be a jerk!ReplyDelete
Laney, I have not seen that show, but I'm always interested in a goodlooking doctor ;-)ReplyDelete
Tami, I remember 21 Jump Street!!! I loved that show and Johnny was one of the reasons.ReplyDelete
Connie, I see that Tony Dow can still leaving you sighing. That's a good sign of a great lasting crush!ReplyDelete
Virginia, I'm loving your list!! Don't get me starting on The Monkees ... I think I will always love Davy!!ReplyDelete
Oooh, Marjay, you have great taste in men.ReplyDelete
Actually, when I look back at my girlhood pop-star/actor crushes they just look so young now. And so many of the "hot guys" getting press these days also look so young. But John Stamos has certainly aged well!ReplyDelete
Medical Center was on from 1969 to 1976, so I'm guessing it was before your time. If you go to Google, then Images, and type in without quotation marks "chad everett medical center", you will see in the first picture what he looked like back then, and you will also see how well he has aged since then. I used to dream about him when I couldn't go to sleep quickly as a teenager.
Today's heart throbs are George Clooney and Mark Harmon, but some of the younger ones aren't too shabby either, LOL!
John Stamos has aged very well indeed. In fact, I think he's much sexier now than in his younger years.ReplyDelete
I crushed on Mark Harmon back before he began his acting career, when he played quarterback for UCLA. I'm still crushing on him now 40+ years later! ::grin::
John Stamos is still looking good.ReplyDelete
Di, the older I get the younger the hot guys get .... what's up with that??!!!?! LOL!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the information Laney. I'll have to check him out :-)ReplyDelete
PJ, there is just something about Mark Harmon. Those eyes, that grin ....ReplyDelete
I think so too Gannon!ReplyDelete
Haha, Buffie! Shary (my duaghter) saw John Stamos just last night on a commercial for Greek yogurt and she said, "Hey, he was on 'Full House'! He's still kinda cute for being old." ;) I remember him from when he was Blackie on 'General Hospital'.ReplyDelete
I've stated this crush a dozen times.....Tom Selleck. Cute when laughing, handsome when serious, care-free attitude without being pompous, the way he wiggled his eyebrows (Magnum, P.I.), and that smile with those dimples in his cheeks. Ooh, he's still goodlooking, sigh.
LOL, Deb!! Oh to be young again ...ReplyDelete
Oh, I love John Stamos! And I totally agree--the older he gets the better looking he gets. Same with Robert Downey, Jr.ReplyDelete
Deb, my mom has always had the biggest crush on Tom Selleck, too!
My first crush was with a distant cousin...he was so hot!ReplyDelete
