great taste!

In 'Honey' a nice character. He always plays nice charaters

dd; mum, do you like that man with the lovely teeth?
me; <distractedly> hmmm...yes, he has beautiful teeth
dd; he makes me shiver!

as opposed to mine, which was....Sylvester Stallone. In Rocky! hmm

YABU - he is cheesy! hmm

WorraLiberty Mon 08-Oct-12 00:23:16

Oh I know YANBU

But yet why does it make me shiver that a grown man makes a young child shiver?

I don't know...I guess I have to deal with that one myself grin

WorraLiberty Mon 08-Oct-12 00:24:27

Oh and I should add I have no fucking clue who he is blush

ithinkimightbegoingmad Mon 08-Oct-12 00:27:22

coola shock shock shock Ok...he might be a bit grin

worra it did make me hmm a bit TBH...then I remembered old Sly Stallone...and that was around the same age i think....

clueless blush

MeFour Mon 08-Oct-12 00:32:17

Ahh Pratt

Even in lie to me he's a good cop

Ah for frig's 7 years old I had fervent crushes on Inspector Morse and Russ bloody Abbot shock

OP - your DD has impeccable taste. Greg Pratt. Legend.

ithinkimightbegoingmad Mon 08-Oct-12 00:41:17

bunny shock grin did your taste improve with time???

<RUSS ABBOTT??> confused>

Happybunny12 Mon 08-Oct-12 02:14:10

Aww bless. I remember thinking Mikey from the goonies was rather hot...

GothAnneGeddes Mon 08-Oct-12 03:08:07

At around that age, I first laid eyes on Morten Harket in the Take On Me video and I wanted to be the girl in the video more then I wanted Christmas. smile

[[ he was DDs first crush. She was about three IIRC.

ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 03:19:20

To my eternal shame, I even looked into flying him out to wherever we were living for her birthday.
I realised I had better things to spend 25K pounds on.

First real crush- girl in the playground at nursery (in pictures I'm staring right at her, ha). Then girl next door who had beautiful cushions in her room (I stuffed one up my top to take home once shock). Then woman with problems and wonky teeth, scary blue eyeshadow who sang way out of tune at church.

I guess my first normal crush was the boy in Les Choristes. The boy with the "face of an angel".

That is a beautiful man in your OP, though grin

FelixDaSouza Mon 08-Oct-12 06:49:29

I think he's a lovely crush to have!

Bunny My first crush was also Russ Abbott! I have finally found someone else who shared my crush. grin

I've been slagged off about that one for years!

FolkGhoul Mon 08-Oct-12 06:51:46

I might need to have it explained to me, but I don't get the pride bit confused.

My first crush was Shaggy from the 1960s Scooby Doo cartoon.

ihavenonameonhere Mon 08-Oct-12 07:03:47

Mine was Andy Crane from CBBC - oh the shame!!

RobinSparkles Mon 08-Oct-12 07:20:12

DD1 (aged 5) declared that Chris Martin, from Coldplay, could be her boyfriend the other day. The Coldplay feat Rihanna video was on, I forget what the song is called.

I was like OFGS DD he's so boring!

ithinkimightbegoingmad Mon 08-Oct-12 10:13:55

folk re the pride..I am hoping it is not my dds greatest acheivement grin

but happy that she has good eyesight and taste!

and that the character he played in Honey is caring and respectful, hard working, principled etc <clutching at straws!>

robin grin he is dull, but it could be a lot worse than 'boring'

rip that link just goes to googlr homepage confused

BigFatLegsInWoolyTIghts Mon 08-Oct-12 10:16:42

My first crush was Meatloaf.


Happybunny12 Mon 08-Oct-12 10:17:32

Pmsl at Andy Crane!!! He he!

ithinkimightbegoingmad Mon 08-Oct-12 10:42:47

bigfat i still have a bit of a crush on Meatloaf! there is no blush about it!!

ithinkimightbegoingmad Mon 08-Oct-12 10:43:29

i just googled Andy Crane

oh dear....


Dd's first crush is Tom Daley. She's 8 and recorded him on her camera off the telly so she could watch him again.

He has a good body I suppose. grin

missymoomoomee Mon 08-Oct-12 10:50:59

My 1st crush was Adam Ant, closely followed by Shakin Stevens, I thought that was bad enough but Russ Abbot ......grin

peeriebear Mon 08-Oct-12 10:54:49

Mine were Indiana Jones and He-Man!

Ooh yes to Indiana Jones. smile

FolkGhoul Mon 08-Oct-12 11:17:09

Ah that explains it a bit!

I had no idea who he was. grin

Probably has more going for him than Shaggy!

FolkGhoul Mon 08-Oct-12 11:19:30

I've just remembered my huge crush on Luke Skywalker!

Just snorted out loud at He-Man, I'm glad nobody else is the the house!

YY to Andy Crane, and Philip Schofield! I must have needed glasses as a child grin

Xnedra Mon 08-Oct-12 11:23:25

My 7 year old informed me she's marrying David Tennant. Good taste. grin

nettie Mon 08-Oct-12 11:25:49

Scott from Thunderbirds!

jeee Mon 08-Oct-12 11:28:56

At 7, DD1 had crushes on David Tennant and Gethin Jones. By 9, she'd moved on to JLS.

At 11 she has pictures of Mo Farrah all over her bedroom walls. Now, he seems a lovely man. He's a talented runner. But as a pin up?

whistlestopcafe Mon 08-Oct-12 11:32:24

I had a crush on Basil Brush when I was that age. I would blush whenever he came on TV. I had fantasies of having cosy Saturday evenings snuggled up on the sofa and I wondered what it would feel like to snog him. blush

My first crush was Keanu Reeves, I think I was about uncle knew his next door neighbour so I've got a personalised signed photo...I still cherish it as it's a photo from Point Break.

<backs quietly away from whistlestopcafe > grin

But urgggh at snogging Basil Brush!!

Oh and Mekhi Pfeiffer doesn't always play nice characters. Have you not seen Dawn Of The Dead or Clockers?

Fakebook Mon 08-Oct-12 11:38:05

This was my first crush:

I used to find pictures of him in the newspaper television section and put them in a secret place at the bottom of my wardrobe!

Fakebook Mon 08-Oct-12 11:38:52

Oh and I loved mekhi Phifer in ER. He was brilliant.

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Mon 08-Oct-12 11:40:32

For a few years from 7 upwards I loved Alan Smith and Lee Bowyer when they played for Leeds.

My crushes haven't got better with age either as its Russell Howard at the moment blush

He was my first crush.

Oh the daydreams...........

FutTheShuckUp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:44:12

Mine was Nathan Moore from brother beyond.
And I still would oh hell yes.

Oh TheOneWithTheHair - did you watch The Lost Boys 10 times a day? I did for a while >_<

I always preferred Kiefer in that though.

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Mon 08-Oct-12 11:45:26

As often as I could get away with ScarletLady02. I think it may have started a bit of a vampire obsession too. blushgrin

merlincat Mon 08-Oct-12 11:47:20

Dd is in love with Jonathan Rhys Myers. Superb taste.

Better than mine; first love was Gary Glitter.

He's quite cute SPs but I don't really get the footballer thing. confusedgrin

FutTheShuckUp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:49:31

Merlin- NOOOOO????

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Mon 08-Oct-12 11:49:46

He is not. I was obsessed.

He lived next to my uncle when I had this almighty crush. I used to stand outside his house hoping to see him.

Then one night I went to a BBQ at my uncle's and Alan was there! I couldn't talk to him, just sat staring at him all night. Everyone was laughing at me as I kept saying over and over "its Alan Smith! Alan Smith is here, Alan Smith is eating the same burgers as me!"

He came over and said hello and I thought I would faint blush

Ah the only celeb that I saw on a regular basis was Fred the weather man and I definitely didn't have a crush on him. grin
