Gratuitous Hottie Round Up: Heartthrob Edition

Thursday February 14, 2013 by Alexandra C.

Remember falling in love for the first time? That initial rush when you saw the other person, had butterflies in your stomach and that moment when your heart skipped a beat?

I certainly remember, though unfortunately I don't know if I can say the same for the object of my affection. In fact, I can say with 100% confidence that they had no clue because the person I was head over heels for was Leo DiCaprio. Oh, Leo. 

Your first celeb crush stays with you for a lifetime and on this Valentine's Day, we wanted to take you back to that first love moment with a round up of our favourite heart throbs from years past. 

#1 Leonardo DiCaprio

If Titanic isn't the most romantic movie in the world, I don't know what is. I don't think there was a dry eye in the theatre at the end of that one. 

#2 Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT)

JTT! Check out those frosted tips ladies. 

#3 'N Sync

I was always an 'N Sync girl, not so much for the Backstreet Boys. Tell me I'm not alone?

#4 Daniel Radcliffe (Melissa's Heartthrob Pick!)

Maybe it's his magical wizard charm that gets us? 

#5 Freddie Prinze Jr

I fell for Freddie in She's All That. He has that perfect smile and a twinkle in his eye! 

#6 Usher

Usher has those great abs of steel and I'd really like him to serenade me. 
#7 Jared Leto

Jordan Catalano?! So angsty and so broody, but so hot. 
#8 Edison Chen (Mandy's Heartthrob Pick!)

Mandy says that she's a bit embarrassed to admit her crush on Edison. But she points out, "Heck, he was every young Hong Kong girl's crush at one point."

#9 James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson

Be still my beating heart, men of Dawson's Creek! I'm actually a Pacey/Joshua fan over James, what about you?

#10 Hanson

About a year ago, Hanson did a CD signing and I went, totally unashamed of my love for them that has lasted til this day. 
Who was your first heart throb?

Thanks to "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" and "The Princess Bride", my early crushes were Christian Slater and Carey Elwes. I recently watched "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and think I would have crushed on Matthew Broderick too but for the fact that my parents would not have let me see a movie about skipping school at that impressionable age ;)

Patrick Dempsey - I've always been ahead of my time :) Now, everyone thinks he's hot! But "Happy Together" was one of my faves of his.
