They were our first loves… We loved them before we even knew when love was. Not only did we see every one of their movies, wait in endless lines to buy all their CD’s – memorize every word to their songs – and learn every one of their dance moves, but we plastered their pictures all over our bedroom walls so that their faces would be the first and last thing we saw each day. Yeah, we were majorly crushing on these stars back in the day.
But let’s be honest, even into adulthood we haven’t really given up that dream of one day bumping into them somewhere, falling madly in love and living happily ever after. But what do they look like now? Would the sight of them still give us those same butterflies in our stomach? Here are 26 childhood stars we’re still crushing on.
Tiffani Amber Thiessen
Oh Kelly Kapowski…. Who wasn’t madly in love with this childhood star at one point in their lives? Kelly Kapowski was quite possibly the most popular crush of the 90’s. We were all devastated when Saved by the Bell finally came to an end, but lucky for us, we wouldn’t have to go too long without see this stars beautiful face on our televisions – she quickly landed a the role of Valerie Malone on the teen hit drama Beverly Hills 90210 – a show with an even bigger cult following than Saved by the Bell. The wholesome girl next-door into a sultry vixen – Don’t worry, Theissen hasn’t disappeared – thank god! You can now catch her starring in USA’s hit series White Collar and at 41, we’re still nowhere near done crushing on her!
