Teenage Heartthrob Blogfest

Today is the day!

The day of the Teenage Heartthrob Blogfest hosted by me, Vic Caswell and Emily White.



As a referesher, we want to see a list of 7 celebs who tantalized teenage you. There's still time to join so feel free to add your name to Mr. Linky below.

Onto my list!

Christian Bale in Newsies


Newsies is an awesome movie. And Christian Bale dances and sings in it. Do I even need to say more?
To this day I still love Christian Bale. I don't even care that he's an ass. That's how much I love him...


Keanu Reeves in Speed


Yeah. I mean, what's not to like about Speed? And Keanu Reeves in Speed? That's some good shit. His arms are really buff and you get to look at them for almost the whole movie. Win.



Heath Ledger in Roar


Did you guys watch Roar back when it was on TV? It kinda started Heath Ledger's career. It was a great show. Man. I really miss Heath Ledger


Julian Sands in A Room With A View


The kiss! The nudity! THE AMAZING KISS! Seriously, this movie is amazing. We liked it so much that we had a club devoted to Julian Sand - LOJS (lovers of Julian Sands). Our AP english teachers was a member. Seriously.


Spike in Buffy


Pushing aside the fact that in real life he was actually closer to my Mom's age than mine, Spike was awesome. Blonde? Check. Vampire? Check. Bit of a tortured past? Check. What's not to like about Spike? Man... I miss Buffy.


Robe Lowe in The Stand




I mean, what's not to like about the Nick Andross character in The Stand? Nothing except (spoiler having to do with something hidden in a closet at a turning point in the novel).


Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet



As shakespeare plays go, R+J is not one of my favs. Mostly because it's so overdone and you have to read it like a bajillion times. And also all the tragdey could've been easily avoided if people just calmed the eff down and thought things through for like 5 seconds. But I love this version. And I definitely love Leo in it, which came out when I was in highschool. MMM.



And that's it! The last two were hard for me to choose, and I had two other guys waiting in the wings that just didn't quite make it, but this is a pretty comprehensive list for me.

What about you? Who's on your list? Do you agree or disagree with any of my choices?

Mmm, Spike. Though I wasn't a teen when he tantalized me!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Julian Sands! Wow, haven't seen him in anything in years.
Thanks for hosting the blogfest!

Matthew MacNish said...

Is that Christian with blond highlights? Who knew?

Hannah Kincade said...

I miss Heath Ledger so much it hurts. Sigh.

And LOL, Newsies!

Theresa said...

I love Keanu Reeves and Leonardo Dicaprio :) I couldn't like Spike because I was such a huge Angel fan. And I've never seen Newsies but that pic of Christian Bale is hot!

Anne said...

i can't remember what other choices you had but had to drop from the list

Emily R. King said...

My crush of Christian Bale began from watching Newsies. What is it about a man who can dance? HOT!

Cassie Mae said...

Oh Leo had me when I saw Catch Me if You Can. Oh gosh, he was so amazing in that! Nothing about a hot kid who has a cute accent.

Okay, I really can't talk about it. I'm getting excited. :)

Teebore said...

Hell, Christian Bale in Newsies almost made MY list.

And also all the tragdey could've been easily avoided if people just calmed the eff down and thought things through for like 5 seconds.

THIS. Not one of Shakespeare's more tightly-plotted tragedies...

Maria Zannini said...

LOL! It's posts like these that make me realize how much older I am.

My teenage heart throb was Mr. Spock (the original).

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

ohmygoodness!!! have i told you lately that you are AMAZING!!!??!?!?!

ok! first off- NEWSIES is just sooooo cool! i didn't know anyone else remembered that- though i went for gabriel damon who played spot (yes i had to wiki that)instead of jack. what a great movie!!

keanu- always nice to look at.

ROAR!!! YES!!! i loved roar so much! and then the show just disappeard! and this very incarnation of heath just missed my list... teen me also love him (and JGL) in 10 things i hate about you... but roar was the best! such a tragedy. :(

i have no idea who julian sands or what a room with a view is... but i LOVE that your teacher was in the club!!!

spike was hot- but my buffy crush was on someone else. (later spike was really awesome though)

rob lowe.
ok.
dude.
i have a theory about rob lowe (who is unarguably gorgeous).
but the actor- i'm convinced he is a vampire.
and here's why:
look at that picture. look at a picture of him now. DUDE DOESN'T AGE! AND!!! now he's even acting under another name so that he can nab some younger character rolls again. that name of course is Ian Somerhalder.
vampire.
and we all suspected nick cage.

that r&j was a great film, imo. haters can hate, but it was such a unique vision of such a repeated script. (leo does nothing for me though, except later leo really does have some mad skillz)

Jackie said...

Great choices here!
I love Leonardo Dicaprio.
Heath Ledger, a beautiful soul gone too early.

Catherine Stine said...

Hoo, finally got my post up! I did real people, not TV stars, oops. Our TV wasn't working for a few years so that's my excuse. As far as your crushes, yah, I love Leonardo, now more than before. He was super sexy in Blood Diamond. The accent?

Juliana said...

Oh, great choices!
Though I prefer Angel to Spike lol

Joshua said...

Ahh, yes. Julian Sands. And James Marsters. Awesome choices there.

You'll never get me to admit anything about Leo, though.

Hope Roberson said...

Heck ya to Keanu Reeves in Speed! I think I watched that movie at least fifty times just for him :)

Annalisa Crawford said...

Ah Spike - gorgeous. Although I loved Angel too. Good or evil - it's all the same to me :-)

I first saw Heath Ledger in A Knights Tale. Fantastic actor... My guilty pleasure is 10 Things I Hate About You - even now, as a very grown-up it takes me back to being a teenager.

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Spike...sigh...

The only reason he didn't make the cut for my list was because I wasn't a teenager when BTVS was on. Other wise, yes!

Great list!

Gracielou said...

I named my bird after Leonardo when I was like 8 or 9 I think because I loved him in Titanic. Also Heath ledger is dreamy.

Indigo said...

Awesome choices. I'm still a huge fan of Christian Bale and Julian Sands.

If I would add one more it would be Jonathan Rhys Myers. I first saw him act in Velvet Goldmine alongside Christian Bale. He's such a timeless actor. (Hugs)Indigo

Jamie Gibbs said...

Not Keanu! He's always so sad! Well, post-Bill and Ted anyway :)

I remember when everyone went nuts for Spike back in the day. Teenagers and their bad boy crushes :P

Cheree said...

Love those choices, especially James Masters. He's definitely my kind of vampire.

Summer Frey said...

HA EVAN! I am NOT NOT NOT the only person in the world who watched Roar!!! We were just talking about it a few days ago!

K. Turley (Clutzattack) said...

OOH, Keanu Reeves. He's a good one.

Now I have to go see what Roar is since Heath Ledger is on my list too!

Emily White said...

Oh man! How could I forget Leo?! :O We needed more than seven. It was SO hard to narrow it down.

I love these choices!!!! *swoon*

Rachel @ Unforgettable Books said...

I loved Heath ledger in 10 things. Buffy is my favorite show ever! Spike was the best during the second season, he was hilarious. :)

Adrianne Russell said...

My friends and I watched "A Room with a View" once a month all through high school. *sigh*

Anne Gallagher said...

You know, I wanted to do this blogfest, I really did, but all the guys who tripped my trigger when I was a teenager are dead now. or in their 70's. So I'm sorry to say, I couldn't play.

But I will agree with you, Julian Sands was yummy yum.

DL Hammons said...

Spike! Such an awesome choice! Buffy sure had a crush on him at one point ;)

Carrie Monroe said...

Great choices. I loved Leo in R+J.

mshatch said...

oh, yes, Christian Bale and I might add Daniel Day Lewis as he was in Last of the Mohicans. Talk about smokin' hot...

Kelley said...

Good choices :) :)

Melissa Bradley said...

I loved Leo in R+J. What a great version of the play. And oh yeah I so loved Heath Ledger, but from 10 Things I Hate About You. Never saw Roar, though that is a great pic.

Kristin Rae said...

OMG i even had this written on a sticky on my computer!! and what happens?! I FORGET YOUR BLOGFEST!!! EPIC BLOGGING FRIEND FAIL!! I'm going to remedy this ASAP!

I'm SO with you on Christian Bale and Leo!! THEY ARE MINE!! :)

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

R.I.P. Heath Ledger. It's all I can think of when I see how handsome he is/was.

J.C. Martin said...

Never been much of a Keanu fan. Believe it or not, I'm one of the few who hated the Matrix trilogy. Never really thought of Heath Ledger as a heartthrob, but that is one hot pic of him! And you're the second participant so far with Leo in your picks!

Thanks for organising this cool blogfest!

Ninja Girl said...

CHRISTIAN BALE!!!!!

That is all ;D
Ninja Girl

Jemi Fraser said...

Great blogfest and great choices!! There are so many to choose from :)

TL Conway said...

I have LOVED reading everyone's heartthrob list and now I'm SUPER bummed that I didn't get my act together and play along! :(

I might do it late because it has been THAT. MUCH. FUN.

Except I haven't seen anyone with some of the guys from my list, so I'm getting nervous. I might have horrible taste...
