Somebody shared, “I loooooved Leo.”

Another one replied, “Oh man, I remember being so in love with him in middle school but knowing I was too young for him. Now I’m too old. Go figure.”

Finally, the third added, “When I was 7 or so, I printed 5 pictures of him onto a piece of paper (took approximately 2 hours) and carried it around with me everywhere! I’d take it out, unfold it, and just gaze upon his angelic face. In one, he was shirtless, so I hid it from everyone because I thought I’d go to jail.”

2. Christina Ricci

One person said, “Christina Ricci. Doesn’t matter the media, just totally into her.”

Somebody else replied, “My wife looks like current Christina Ricci, and she was my childhood crush. I am pleased with my lot in life. For many other reasons, of course. That’s just a brag of mine.”

Then the third added, “Same here! When she played Wednesday and when she was in Casper. Those 2 movies were on repeat mainly cause of her.”

3. Orlando Bloom

“First celebrity crush was definitely Orlando Bloom as Legolas. High school I was really into Gerard Way and Jack Black,” commented one.

“I had a life size Legolas cardboard cut out in my room for years as a kid then the Aragorn poster went up and you knew puberty had hit lol,” replied another.

4. Lil Wayne

“You might be the first person I’ve ever heard say Lil Wayne. I still have the biggest crush on him. Idk what it is. He’s just so fine,” somebody said.

Then the second person replied, “Lol, the crazy thing is that me and my sister are nearly 10 years apart (she’s Gen Z), and she went through the same phase at a completely different time in his career. Lol, l and people try to say this man isn’t the GOAT. I was in love with baby Wayne. I was going to go look for him when I turned 18. It was the first thing I was going to do after becoming a wrestler. Right after I was a storm chaser.”

5. Vanessa Hudgens

Somebody mentioned, “Brad Renfro. RIP. Tragic life. Abused by predators that continue to walk free.”

Another person added, “Yes! I had a huge crush on him! That movie The Cure is so good and always brings me to tears! He was great, and his life was such a tragedy!”

The third also shares their experience, “I first saw him as Huck in Tom and Huck, which is still one of my fav movies. He played the role of a character that Disney tried to simplify with such underlying complexity. He was so talented.”

9. Keanu Reeves

11. Ryan Merriman

Right before he was like, ‘Oh, this is Ryan, our lead actor, let’s go say hi’ and I was like, ‘Bro, I was a teen in the 2000s; I know who he is.’”

12. Michael Jackson
