Cori: This week, my first famous crush ever, Fred Savage from "The Wonder Years" celebrated his 44th birthday! (I wanted so badly to be Winnie Cooper. It was ridiculous!) It was during a discussion about that little "fun fact" that JStew and I got to talking about our First Famous Crushes; the Radio, TV or Movie starts that made our hearts flutter...or at the very least beat a little faster when we saw them on the screen, in the pages of magazines or heart their songs.
My taste changed a bit as I got older, and my other crushes included Jonathan Brandis (don't judge me, I thought he was dreamy and had great hair) Tim Curry (I know--total reverse in direction there) and David Bowie (you can judge me for that one--I don't care.)
But there's a special place in my heart for Fred. He was the first ever in my book.
JStew: I admit it. 7 year old me was completely smitten with Daisy Duke. Although, because of my love of matchbox cars I was also probably just as smitten with her Jeep, and probably even more smitten with the General Lee. But seriously, I loved my matchbox cars more than just about anything at that age.
As I got into my teens, Melissa Joan Hart from Sabrina The Teenage Witch became a thing. And when Jamie Pressley was on My Name Is Earl... fuggedaboutit. These days, who knows. Certainly my lovely bride, and probably still Melissa Joan Hart. Haha!
