Mine was Sting. Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking either, but it was the 80s! Now I think he's a bit of a tosser, so I'm not going to bother bringing up a pic.

Axl Rose, Donnie Whalberg and that singer from A-ha. All are a bit WTF now!

Oh and Patrick Swayze, that one definitely still holds up! As does Jon Bon Jovi 😍😍

I suspect that this is worse for women than for men.

Mine were all characters rather than real people.   Princess Leia, Tom Baker’s Dr Who, and the Goblin King from Labyrinth.

The kids don’t know as this isn’t stuff we discuss, but I totally stand by them as crushes with cred.

I had Madonna and 1927 posters covering my walls, but that was fandom rather than crushes as such.

Michael J Fox. He was *so* hot in Back to the Future.

Also Davy Jones from The Monkees, because on our country TV station that show got constant reruns through the 80s.

The kids are just, "Yeah, you like short men, don't you Mum". (DH is 5 foot 4.) They're right.

Mr Spock from Star Trek
Tom Baker is the best Dr Who,  but the one I fancied was David Tennant.
Nick Cave

past - Simon le Bon, Denis Leary, a young Jack McCoy in Law and Order (the original)

present - too many...yeh i like Simon from the Cook and the Chef....Daniel Craig, Damian Lewis (except his role as Soames in the Forsyte Saga has kind of killed the magic)....

Patrick Swayze, nobody puts baby in a corner

Damian Lewis, never had a thing for red heads until he stepped onto the screen.

Me too!!!! Sadly this is when I was a teenager in the 90s so it’s even less forgivable. I look at those pictures of him now and I can’t find a decent one but I thought he was so beautiful back then. To my credit I eventually moved on to Mike Nesmith who is much more understandable. 🤣

I loved Tom Cruise in Jerry McGuire and in that movie where he and Nicole Kidman ran away from Ireland to America.  He seemed so hot then
