I just got home from seeing the movie 500 Days of Summer starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt who you might remember from the hit 90's television series 3rd Rock from the Sun...
(In the red shirt)
...where he played young Tommy... *sigh* I had a HUGE crush on Tommy when I was a teen...but then DB argues that I say that all the time... far too often than what would seem becoming of a young lady:) ...and he'd be right. Fred Savage (Wonder Years), Devon Sawa (Now and Then), Scott Wolf (Party of Five), Luke Perry (90201), Jered Leto (My So Called Life) and of course...Oh, how I hate to admit it... Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Home Improvement)!
Oh heavens! *smacking head against table*
And oh so many more! Perhaps I did have one or two teen idols...at a time! That's normal! Right? What about you? Where you the faithful one-man-kinda-gal or did you spread the love around?
Either way it seems my taste has changed little with age.... Joseph Gordon-Levitt grown into his britches, I must say.... and did a damn fine job of it too!
Actually DB's nephew and I were talking about some of those classic 90's teen icons just last week! The stars and the movies made (however bad) to draw teenager girls in throngs to the cinema, squealing every time one graced the screen (*ehem* Robert Pattinson)
Movies like Varsity Blues! ....
Anyone remember that fine piece of film making? Oh dear! Dawnson Creek star James Van Der Beek with a laughable Texan accent and Paul Walker playing quarter back (hello!)... though the best character was Scott Cann playing Tweeter.
Okay, so maybe I liked them a little rough around the edge at that age....
But then my good friend Barb's main squeeze was David Cassidy.
There's no accounting for taste!
