Ok so we know we all love 80's movies and T.V. shows. But who was the one person that either kept makin ya rewind the movie or made ya keep thinkin about that nights episode as you tried to sleep due to the ever famous 80's crush ???

Mine was and is Christina Applegate from "Married with Children".

My wife to this day gives me the evil eye when her name is brought up cause I once made a comment about the "Bundy Bounce" !

She would be unhappy to say the least if she saw me typing this !!! [Smile]

Phoebe Cates.... hotter than a thousand suns!!!!
The poolside scene in Fast Times, still gets me hot and bothered [Smile]

Betsy Russell... That was one fine woman!!! Topless horseriding... yes please!

Judy Aronson... I had a mad kiddie crush on this girl, courtesy of American ninja and Weird Science! Needless to say that when I saw Friday the 13th 4, and she disrobed, I was very pleased [Smile]

Darcy DeMoss... she was hot in Friday the 13th 6, and Can't Buy Me Love. Don't remember seeing her in much else!

Jami Gertz.... she was hot then, and she's hot now!

Oh so many...... [Big Grin]
Posted by Earl Keese (Member # 7986) on :
For me it was easily Catherine Mary Stewart!

The Last Starfighter, Mischief, Night of the Comet...there was one reason only that I loved (and still do) three movies that otherwise had absolutely nothing in common. [Wink]

At no older than 7 by decade's end, you can't really say I had a crush per se; that said, I always did find Andrea Elson rather attractive back in the day.

Posted by Bamersy (Member # 8808) on :
Huge crush on Matt Dillon-especially the Little Darlings look-though Liar's Moon was an all time fave. Had to special order the VHS from Sears-$30 at the time-whew! It had the alternate/sad ending which I had heard about but never seen until then.....

Bit of a crush on Ralph Macchio from Eight is Enough, pre-Karate Kid he seemed more attainable than Matt. I even entered a "date with" contest through one of the teen magazines. Alas it wasn't meant to be [Smile]

Kevin Bacon in Footloose [Smile]

Michael Pare in Eddie & The Cruisers/Streets Of Fire

Just watched Footloose again last night, and now I must watch Streets Of Fire!
Posted by Chris the CandyFanMan (Member # 3197) on :
Would Miss Elizabeth Hulette count as well? Suffice to say she was likely the first crush of at the very least 5% of the males of Generation Y--and by most accounts was just as beautiful inside where it counts even more as well.
Posted by Fostersman (Member # 37345) on :
I agree with most of the names put forward like Catherine Mary Stuart, Phoebe Cates and Elizabeth Shue. But theres two names I must put forward from the film Somekind Of Wonderful,they are Mary Stuart Masterson and the very lovely Lea Thompson
Posted by LISA LISA (Member # 1780) on :
My crush....there were 2......and I got to meet one of them this past year.

#1- Reb Brown- Captain America (I met him, got my picture with him, he was so nice, and he's still cute).

#2- Sam Jones- Flash Gordon (I love that movie- and I rewind it all the time just to see him in those black leather shorts)- and my friend met him and got me his autograph and a video of him talking's really cool. I absolutely hate the movie TED- the only good thing about it, was the Flash Gordon stuff.

I thought the model/singer "Samantha Fox" was gorgeous back in the late '80's - and still do [Wink]

I also liked the actress Sybil Danning back in the '80's; IIRC, she was in her 30's at that time but was still extremely hot - and I've always been into older women, even when I was a kid [Wink]

Nostalgic, I remember Sybill Danning from L.A. Bounty and Amazon Women on the Moon. She was very beautiful and tall.
Jessie, how did I know you would say Jake Ryan?! 😊
