Remember Andrew Keegan? Check Him Out Now!
Everyone remembers their first crushes, and for many of us it was someone who appeared on either the big or small screen that really caught our eye. Now personally for me, the following list really doesn’t apply, but many of the girls of the era grew up besotted by some of these hunky heartthrobs!
Everyone grows up and matures though, and we all age unfortunately, and that applies to our favourite stars, too!
However, it’s fair to say that some age better than others, so let’s take a look at some of your favourite male stars of the day, and how kind, or not, the years have been to them….
1. Ryan Phillippe.
His movie role list was pretty incredible back then and included ‘White Squall’ ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ ‘54’ and ‘Cruel Intentions’.
He really was one of the hottest stars in Hollywood at the time, and he still looks great today – what do you think?
2. Luke Perry.
We all know him as Dylan McKay from ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’. He was a serious crush for many teen girls at the time, and 90210 rocketed him to being a household name. He still appears on our screens occasionally but never to the same kind of effect as back in Beverly Hills!
3. Devon Sawa.
In the 90s, he had some great roles in ‘Casper’, ‘Now and Then’ and ‘Idle Hands’, and he seemed to be the next up and coming star of his generation.
Sawa has been in a few productions since but never really capitalised on the leading roles we thought he would get!
4. Mario Lopez.
He was on the TV show ‘Saved By The Bell’ and was the crush of teen girls everywhere for several years! Lopez has had the occasional stint on our screens, but rarely appears in much anymore, which is a shame. What’s not a shame is that he still looks almost identical!!
5. Elijah Wood.
Elijah Wood not only looked great but was a real acting talent, too and this has helped him to stay around in Hollywood, still getting roles in big productions. No matter what he appears in, though, he will always be Frodo Baggins to us!
6. Andrew Keegan.
He was in many movies back then including ‘Camp Nowhere’ and ‘10 Things I Hate About You’, and this really helped him win a place in the heart of young women everywhere!
Since those days, however, he has only has a few guest appearances on some TV shows and has never reached the same status as he had before, which we think is a shame!
7. Joey Lawrence.
He had a role on ‘Blossom’ as Joey Russo, in which he was a real character and many people’s favourite character. Joey Lawrence has continued to act and is keeping very busy with several projects under way as we speak! He still looks good today, too, check him out….
8. Rider Strong.
He was well regarded in his role on ‘Boy Meets World’ but as he grew up, he gave up acting and took up education, graduating from Columbia University. Rider Strong has made a good return to acting though, starring in some productions recently that include Girl Meets World and providing voice roles for animated shows.
9. Johnathan Taylor Thomas.
We know Jonathan Taylor Thomas most for his role on Home Improvement, in which he played the middle kid, Randy.
Thomas hasn’t done a huge number of projects since, but was most recently seen in Last Man Standing. It’s scary how much he still looks like Randy, too…
10. Jason Priestley.
He was the other big male star on the hit TV show ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ and adorned teen girls’ walls in poster form for several years! Priestly has gone on to star in more than 100 projects over the years, recently being seen on our screens in Wishenproof and Private Eyes!
Are you surprised by how your favourite stars look today, or are you just surprised by how little some of them have changed? Do you prefer how they were then, or does the new, mature you prefer the new, mature them? Let us know all of your thoughts in the comments as always!
