    ok; we're going to show our age here. Who were the most popular teen idols of your time that you absolutely adored & had pinups of????!

    Mine were: l970s...David Cassidy, Leif Garrett, Peter Frampton & Donny Osmond.

    l980s...Michael J. Fox

    I was married in 1986, so I didn't have a crush on anyone after that! LOL

    In no particular order trying to remember my bedroom closet gallery:
    • Half of Duran Duran (although even then I thought Nick wore too much makeup)
    • Christian Slater
    • Brian Bloom (those gorgeous eyes are now in those Cadillac commercials)
    • Michael J. Fox
    • John Cusack (still have a bit of a crush on him now)
    There were probably others that I can't remember at the moment!

    Jonathan Taylor Thomas-JTT!

    I remember making pizza with pizza dough in the shape of J T T.

    I also had a 'hall of cuteness' under the stairs, which was a crawl space I completely wallpapered in his pictures. My friend and I would do our homework in there for 'inspiration'.

    I wrote him a piece of fan mail saying my hamster's name was 'Scooter', and a few weeks later, a turtle in a Home Improvement episode was named 'Scooter'. I thought for sure it was a sign.

    I even had my watch set to CA time so I could figure out what he was doing at all times of the day.

    Sigh. Good times.

    This was me too. I also loved Bon Jovi.

    I also loved Michael J Fox, Kirk Cameron.

    Jem-that's funny! One of my jr high friends actually met him when he was doing an appearance in Dallas.

    I had so many, but the few that I can remember include:

    Tom Cruise
    Rob Lowe
    Micheal Jackson
    River Phoenix
    Ricky Schroder (The Rickster)
    John Stamos

    I am sure that my mom could remember them more than me since she was constantly yelling at me for taping pictures all over my walls.

    My teen idols were Donny Osmond, David Cassidy, Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett. I remember my father taking my cousin and I to see David Cassidy at the Atlantic City Convention Hall, and all we did was scream. When I took my daughter to see the Jonas Brothers, it was like a glimpse back in time, so though I tease my daughter all the time, I completely understand her obsession.

    I was so in love with Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson. (I always had a crush on Frank in the Hardy Boys, but you had to love Shaun, too!) I was completely in love with Little Joe, too (Michael Landon). Plastering my walls, though, were posters of George Strait. Those jeans, that hat, those eyes, that smile - that crush is still going strong! :)

    My teeny-bopper years were early to mid 90s, so obviously I was deeply and meaningfully in love with each of the New Kids on the Block at some point! Of course, I also stayed up to watch The Monkees and I loved Davey Jones. Then, at 17, I watched Meet the Deedles and Pleasantville and -OMG- one look at Paul Walker and I was in love all over again!

    Yeah, I know the Chad you are talking about. He was cute. I can't remember his last name. He was in that show with the Quaker oats man and Shannen Doherty. I saw him on tv recently and he is um...well...he doesn't like women anymore :blush:

    I don't remember who all of my teen crushes were. I know I liked NKOTB. My friends and I liked Tom Cruise but he was a bit older than us. There was a kid at school who looked just like him so of course we had a crush on him too LOL

    I was a Hanson fanatic...Taylor to be specific...my room was wallpapered in posters from Teen Beat and the like. Before that it was Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Thomas Ian Nicholas (he was in Rookie of the Year and later the American Pie movies), and Jonathan Brandis (RIP). My Hanson fanaticism far surpassed any other though...so I TOTALLY get the Jonas Brothers love today!

    I was IN LOVE with him. You couldn't tell I had wallpaper for about 2 years because I had posters on every surface :) It shows my age (24) to have him as my teen idol, but I was like 13 when *NSYNC came out. Who else would I idolize? :)

    Gah, I have to admit I adored Shaun Cassidy and Donny Osmond as a young kid (although they were before I was in poster collecting mode). I think it was their teeth. They had great smiles. Even funnier was that I also had a weird crush on Donny Most... Ralph from Happy Days. Give me a funny guy over a musclehead any day!
