Who’s Your Celebrity Crush These Days?

Celebrity crush

Just for fun, I’m curious: Who’s your celebrity crush? Mine has giant biceps and a secret handshake…

Steph Curry

Mr. Stephen Curry of the Warriors! Ten-year-old Toby has gotten me into basketball, and I have heart eyes for Steph, arguably the greatest shooter in NBA history.

That smile!

He’s a great leader on his team and mentors the younger players. He’s also obsessed with his wife, which makes me love him even more.

He shimmies after nailing a great shot.

But what REALLY clinched it was this video of Steph singing Hamilton in the car with his daughters.

And here’s his secret family handshake. Watch that video and try not to swoon!

Stephen Curry

Who is your celebrity crush these days? My sister makes fun of me for asking this question annually, but I always love hearing your answers.

P.S. How to keep the sparks flying, and what was your first kiss like?

  1. Brandi Walker says...

    After seeing Bruno Mars in concert, it was over. I saw him 3 more times after that. And I was pregnant by the third song every time. His voice and his moves. There is something about a man who can lead a band like he does. Sexy.

  2. Nannette says...

    Charlie Hunnam 1st love always
    Cillian Murphy

  3. Leah says...

    Marc Ruchmann, in a great new french show (The Hookup Plan/Plan Coeur) I just started watching!

  4. Liz says...

    Sebastian Stan – he plays James “Bucky” Barnes in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. I can’t get enough of his smile, big lips and crinkly eyes!!!

  5. Kamian says...

    Daveed Diggs. I’m never going to get over him in Hamilton

  6. Renee says...

    Trevor Noah.

  7. Martina says...

    Harry Styles. Long hair, short hair, always. Love him, both looks and personality.

    • Ewa says...

      Same girl, same. That Grammy performance was……..OUF!

  8. KP says...

    Daveed Diggs! And Will from The Repair Shop.

  9. Lea says...

    Haven’t seen him mentioned yet – Simu Liu from Kim’s Convenience

    • Jess says...

      Canadian here! Torontonian, in fact. Our entire country has a mad crush on Simu Liu and adores Kim’s Convenience. I lived in the neighbourhood where it’s filmed and walked by the real Kim’s every day, twice a day. I just moved out a few months ago. I saw Simu around TO and yes – just as crushworthy in person.

    • Sam says...

      Oooh, this is one of mine too! That smile and the muscles! Can’t wait to see him as a superhero in Shang-Chi.

    • Charlie says...

      Yaaaasss. A total cutie!

  10. L says...

    Philadelphian here and JT Realmuto. Damn.

  11. Jenn says...

    I saw this and immediately thought: Daniel Ricciardo!

    He’s a Formula 1 driver and the heart and soul of the Netflix docuseries about F1, called Drive to Survive. Many of the drivers are VERY nice looking men, but to boot he is Australian, tan, charming, funny, has an adorable smile, and seems very genuine and normal despite the insane money, fame, and prestige involved in the sport. I should say that I’m also influenced by my recurring dreams where he whisks me away on a yacht, but I don’t think that harms anyone.

    • Kimberley says...

      absolutely love this Jenn. I have grown to love him more this series, F1 needs his down-to-earth-ness!

  12. jenny andrews anderson says...

    Bang Chan from Stray Kids. I’m 51. Goodnight.

    • Renee says...

      That made me laugh OUT LOUD!!
      Love it.

  13. NancyLou says...

    Definitely Dr. Fauci.

  14. Elle says...

    Please interview Ayesha Curry! Love her Sweet July brand, her style, recipes, and she and Steph have the cutest kids.

  15. Claire Matthews says...

    Gavin Leatherwood! I can’t!

  16. Sherri says...

    Sorry Jo, Steph is MY boyfriend!! Hahaha!!

  17. Ananda says...

    Late to the party, but watched “Crash Landing on You” on Netflix and would definitely rank Ri Jeong Hyeok (character) aka Hyun Bin (actor’s name) as my top celebrity crush right now.

    When I told my aunt this, her reply was, “oh yes, woodblock on the outside, noble on the inside ” which is the perfect way to describe the character’s nuanced facial expressions and stoic-pianist-soldier vibe. 😍

    • Elle says...

      Omg, yes to Hyun Bin! And so many swoon worthy K-drama stars…

  18. Eroseb says...

    Lol @ your crush is Curry!
    Warriors fan here and here are my tops, some no longer on the team:
    1. Andre Iguodala
    2. Klay Thompason
    3. Shaun Livingston
    Other major hots:
    1. Adam Driver like apparently everyone else?
    2. Anthony Bourdain

    • Morgan says...

      Klay Thompson… swoon! I’m with you.

  19. A. says...

    My number one in terms of how many years this crush has carried on is Ethan Hawke, my Renaissance Man. 😂 And newer on the scene, but still a raging crush for the ages – John Reynolds. Oh, and verrry into Roberta Colindrez when the hair is short in I Love Dick… my gawd! 🤤

  20. mint says...

    Joe Manganiello! Apparently he is a nice person, is in to D&D, is married to Sofia Vergara (that I like too) and is getting better as he ages…

  21. Lindsay says...

    My husband and I just watched Ted Lasso, so…. Jason Sudeikis. :-)

    But being from the bay area, yes, to Steph (though Andre Igoudala is my guy). And always, Daveed Diggs.

  22. Jane says...

    I was in the car with my youngest and a Post Malone song came on and I said my hairdresser really likes him. Silence. Then, “Does she like him like you like Barack Obama?”. I forgot that once my oldest asked me who was on “my list”- here it is in no particular order…
    Barack Obama- smart, kind and loves his wife and family
    Jason Mamoa- loves his wife and family and moves with such grace
    Liam Nesson
    Henrik Lundquist- hockey player
    Kyle Chandler and Taylor Kitsch- Friday Night Lights, the dream team
    Ali Mahershala- such a great smile

    Always fun

    • Sally says...

      Ah yes, Barack Obama! I’ve had a solid thing for him since he first took office. And I read his book at the start of this year, and loved him even more!
      Smart, handsome, loves his family, kind, earned respect through pure merit. All round solid guy.

  23. Jul says...

    Ben McKenzie circa the early 2000s. Rewatching The OC left me with a schoolgirl crush on Ryan Atwood.

  24. Asia says...

    Steven Yeun 😍

  25. Dani says...

    Milo Ventimiglia all day, every day, and forever.

  26. Lisa says...

    While on fertility drugs, I had some seriously sexy dreams about Daveed Diggs, so him. Trevor Noah. I once saw a hummus salesman in Cape Town who looked a lot like him and I got all flustered and gooey being in the proximity of someone vaguely resembling him who gives me free hummus, so if I met him for real I don’t know what would happen. Andy Samberg.

  27. Jess says...

    Sam Heugman in Outlander

  28. Deidre says...

    Paul Rudd for when I want to feel young. Lakeith Stanfield for when I want to feel sultry. Timothee Chalamet for when I want to feel frivolous and french. Trevor Noah for when I want to feel clever and comfortable. Jared Leto for when I want to feel absurd and complicated. Sam Heughan for when I want to feel everything.

    • Nigerian Girl says...

      This is…serious.

    • Sam Heughan for everything haha

    • jamie says...

      Sam Heughan makes me purr and I don’t even date them.

    • jamie says...

      Sam Heughan makes me purr and I don’t even date men.

  29. Blandine says...

    Anyone else just recently watched ‘Anne with an E’ and can’t get over Gilbert Blythe/ Lucas Jade Zumann? Serious heart eyes :-)

  30. mimi says...

    Rufus Sewell or Jude Law.

  31. mary s says...

    Andre Holland!

  32. Mandy says...

    Hozier. Regularly reads poetry on his IG. Also, his lyrics, his green eyes, and his band being 50/50 men to women. Just sayin.

    • Ann says...

      Yes….so dreamy! 😍

  33. Pablo says...

    Jen Psaki!

  34. Jennifer Fernandez says...

    America Ferrara
    Tom Hardy
    Rachel Cargle
    Josh O’Connor

  35. Marianne says...

    Aaron Rodgers. He’s hosting Jeopardy this week. Swoon.

  36. Allyson says...

    Daniel Kaluuya especially after seeing Judas and the Black Messiah. He’s so fine.

  37. Shawna says...

    Manny Montana
    Jason Momoa
    Adam Driver
    Tom Hiddleston
    Tom colicchio

  38. Jessie says...

    Kim Namjoon from BTS – the smarts, the talent, the dimples! And Michaela Coel – when I was watching I May Destroy You, I could not get enough of interviews and articles on her. So talented, so beautiful, so inspiring.

    • Julie says...

      Yes!! Namjoon and Jin of BTS ❤️ Smart, kind and “worldwide handsome” as Jin would say, haha. On a more serious note, I’m so happy the definition of beauty is becoming more diverse. Growing up I’d never have imagined the rest of the world outside Asia appreciating Korean men!

    • Yumi says...

      A big yes to Kim Namjoon – sweet, smart… the dimples.

  39. Morgan says...

    A couple years back during the playoffs we realized golden state was going to be playing Portland and Portland is the only nba venue within driving distance of Vancouver island where we live. We spent WAY too much money and bought tickets on a whim. There were no accommodations left so we ended up in an air bnb camper in someone’s backyard and drove 10 hours to Portland to stay one night to see the game and it was hands down one of my top five moments of joy in my life. Worth every minute in the car and every penny. Basketball brings great joy! I hope you get to see steph live someday ❤️

  40. Amanda says...

    I’ve been obsessed with Hamilton on Disney+ and find the King George scenes hilariously funny. Jonathan Groff is amazingly talented!

  41. Kristen says...

    Adam Driver. Once he gets under your skin, there’s no going back!

    • kelly says...

      yes

    • Alexia says...

      Omg yes

    • Ann says...

      Yep! 💯

  42. Jessica says...

    Skylar Astin, he is so good in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.

  43. Lynn says...

    Brad Pitt. Always.

  44. Trish O says...

    I think my me, my husband, my mom, and my 19 year old are all crushing big time on Stanley Tucci….. like so many are right now. He just seems so fun and nice and he dresses so well while eating his way around Italy.

  45. Mary Flook says...

    PAUL RUDD always and forever ❤️❤️❤️

  46. Sarah says...

    I’m posthumously falling in love with Chadwick Boseman and it makes me so sad that I wasn’t more aware of him more while he was with us <3. What a wonderful and talented person.

  47. Anon says...

    Is it wrong that my crush is a colleague? For years and years. Though I am happily married, my crush will forever feature in my fantasies and I will forever swoon at the sight of him. I can’t help it. I don’t have eyes for any celebrity as all my surplus love is spent on this sweet sexy man. No, really… I am asking… Is this wrong??

    • Laura says...

      It is not wrong. You are human!

  48. Meggles says...

    Chris Evans. Fundamentally decent Boston boy, amazing biceps. Let’s just say I love the Marvel movies…

  49. EK says...

    Steven Yeun
    Adam Brody

  50. Elle says...

    Dan Levy. No more words needed.

    • DeeDee says...

      Me too!

  51. Jill D. says...

    Lenny Kravitz has always been a crush of mine…but after watching Call My Agent I found myself thinking about Assaad Boubab – I must say it disturbed me a little bc his character initially was arrogant and a bit controlling (not my cup of tea let’s just say)….luckily his character softened up more as the seasons when on so that solidified it for me. Of course I love Gregory Montel too from the show – but Assaad – my goodness he is sexy…

    • Kristen says...

      Ahhhh…Call My Agent! Since watching, my Google history is pretty much just Andrea Martel hair, Andrea Martel style, Andrea Martel green jacket, and on and on.
      As far as French celebrity crushes go though, Omar Sy from Lupin…so charismatic.

    • Kimberley says...

      yes yes yes Assaad Boubab and Omar Sy! Gimme all les hommes français

  52. Samantha says...

    Cillian Murphy (forever)
    Idris Elba
    Edward Norton

    • Mandy says...

      Cillian forever.

  53. brenn says...

    To this day, the most embarrassing moment of my life was when I (a young, pubescent 13 year old) walked in on Steph in his boxers while I was petsitting his family’s dogs. I thought his family was gone and didn’t know he had flown in the night before, so not only was I shocked to see ANYONE in the house, I was mortified to note that it was Stephen in a state of undress. Completely tongue tied, I just backed away slowly and ran outside. One hell of a sexual awakening.

    • L says...

      OMG haha this is the best anecdote for this post!

  54. Leah Smith says...

    Boris Kodjoe !! Good grief he’s fine!

  55. Michelle says...

    Steven Yeun
    Henry Golding
    Paul Rudd 4ever
    Duke of Hastings of course
    And also Jesse Williams – the main reason I still watch Grey’s Anatomy

  56. Val says...

    Jon Ecker
    Pedro Pascal – there is just something about those Spanish speaking men… damn sexy.

    • Priscilla says...

      Pedro Pascal for me, too. And Oscar Isaac. *swoon*

  57. Emily says...

    Riz Ahmed!! So talented, so smart, so handsome. I swoon.

    • Abbey says...

      Same!

  58. Samantha says...

    Tucci!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  59. Katherine Pickerell says...

    Jensen Ackles…. the grin, the crinkles around the eyes, the deep voice. What’s not to love!

  60. lauren says...

    My husband went to undergrad with Steph. He is a really nice guy!

  61. Margaret says...

    Johhny Flynn and Seth Rogan!!

  62. Jodie says...

    Trevor Noah
    The Duke of Hastings (I know..but you can’t deny it)
    Mark Ruffalo (forever)
    Sterling K Brown
    Jay Ellis (but specifically his character Lawrence from Insecure)
    Rami Malek (forever #2 after Ruffalo)

    • ALLIE says...

      YES! Jay Ellis is so dreamy.

  63. Harry Styles! I call him my Fake Son instead of my Fake Boyfriend, because he’s so young. But I love his openness, his style, and his voice, and the fact that he is dating the brilliant Olivia Wilde. The Sleep Story he narrated on the Calm app is a work of genius. The covers he sings of other artists’ song are just amazing. He just seems up for anything.

    • Karen says...

      Agreed!! And to any doubters that Grammy performance will surely change your mind! Pure 🔥!

    • Stefanie says...

      I hope you’ve read The Idea of You if you have a Harry Styles crush!

  64. Ann says...

    Dave Grohl and Matthew McConaughey 😍🔥😍

    • Ann says...

      And Adam Driver 🔥

  65. Elizabeth says...

    Bill Pullman! Currently loving him in “The Sinner.”

    • Jenny says...

      Forever!

  66. Court says...

    Richard Madden (Aka Prince Charming, Aka Robb Stark)
    Sam Heughan (Aka Jamie Fraser)
    Sebastian Stan (Aka Winter Solider/Bucky Barnes)

    They all look alike lol I have a TYPE.

  67. CK says...

    Brandi Carlile! She is so authentic- while she has an amazing voice and message she is so grounded and loves to talk about her wife and kids. Plus, her style is amazing.

  68. Marie says...

    Slightly embarrassing, but Jay Harrington in SWAT. The dang beard and grey hair gets me every time (when did I start liking grey hair on guys??)

  69. Sarah says...

    No one else said Nick Jonas yet? He is so kind and earnest on The Voice! And he likes older women (lucky for me)! HA

  70. Helga says...

    I have a long time crush on Steph but right now…Stanley Tucci!

  71. Caroline says...

    Paul Rudd ! He has gotten sexier and sexier over the years :)

    • Erin Banks says...

      I agree. His 80’s music video parodies ❤️

  72. Danielle says...

    MEGAN THEE STALLION is without question number one.

    Then in no particular order:
    Adam Driver
    LaKeith Stanfield
    Shira Haas
    Noah Centineo
    Adrian Brody
    Woody Harrelson ( I know, don’t ask)

    • MB says...

      My husband will not leave me alone about Adrian Brody. He’s like, “Adrian Brody????????? Whhhhhhhhyyyy????” There is something sexy about him that I can’t explain. Love to see you think so too.

    • Quinn says...

      I *casually* mentioned to a friend that I thought Adam Driver was cute, and the following Christmas she got me a coffee mug that had a collage on it—all of Adam Driver pictures. I was so embarrassed, but it’s now my favorite mug. Perhaps my tone wasn’t as casual as I thought! Ha!

    • jillian says...

      I am IN LOVE with LaKeith Stanfield in Someone Great!

  73. Sarz says...

    Mr. Curry is an excellent choice. It’s only recently occured to me that I’ve arrived at that age in which good dads are hot. 😊 I’m going to add Rebecca Hall to the list. She’s gorgeous, but it really is her understated confidence that gets me. And female directors, amIright? I’m excited to see Passing.

  74. Liz says...

    Oscar Isaac.
    Jon Stewart.

  75. Taylor says...

    Henry Cavill

    • HMB says...

      Yes! He and Chris Evans, and Sebastian Stan. Swoon.

  76. Mara says...

    Did anyone else get a giant crush on Billie Eilish’s dad after seeing The World’s a Little Blurry?

    • Yes

  77. Katrin says...

    Riz Ahmed. Those eyes —-

  78. Anna says...

    Taika Waititi, Jason Mantzoukas, Pedro Pascal, Florence Pugh.

    • jenny andrews anderson says...

      yes. yes. yes and yes.

  79. Lori says...

    I was always a fan of Silicon Valley but didn’t think very much about Kumail Nanjiani’s character until I saw The Big Sick. But he really started to intrigue me with the podcast he and his wife Emily made last year about staying in (and tips for staying sane during shelter in place). He’s super funny, articulate, thoughtful and quite sexy – especially when he was prepping for a Marvel film – the cover of Men’s Health…smoking hot!

    • Lori says...

      coming back to add a few more : )

      – I’ve always thought David Strathairn was handsome and he looks uber good in Billions!
      – not usually my type but Justin Hartley from This is Us is mmm, mmm good
      – anyone on the Paul Hollywood from GBB train? Those blue eyes!
      – gone but not forgotten, Anthony Bourdain just dripped sex appeal (or SA as my teen self would say)
      – Andy Gardia used to always make my crush lists but has fallen off. Funny to see him in the above clip. That movie was something else.

  80. Anna says...

    Paul Rudd always and forever!

  81. Ashley Dierickx says...

    oh geeze now you made me in love with stephen curry. i also love gael garcia bernal and ryan gosling. also nick miller from new girl, forever.

    • Jodie says...

      Gael Garcia Bernal in Mozart In the Jungle…swoon.

  82. Jess says...

    daniel kaluuya

    • Joy says...

      I just saw him on SNL…had no idea who he was before that but he is SO magnetic!!

  83. Susannah says...

    Michael B Jordan
    Sean Bean
    Jason Hughes as Ben Jones in Midsomer Murders- look it up!
    Rachel Weisz

    • Asia says...

      Oh goodness yes, Michael B Jordan!!

  84. Z says...

    Riz Ahmed

  85. Jennifer Slattery says...

    John Legend! My family loves The Voice. I think my husband also crushes on him 😂

  86. Gretchen says...

    I’ve been watching old episodes of this remarkably silly British game show called Taskmaster. (The whole thing is on youtube and it’s the perfect diversion!) I’ve been in love with Noel Fielding for ages and I was delighted when he showed up in Series Four. Something about his floppy hair, ridiculous style, and complete ability to be himself wins me over every time.

    • Katherine says...

      Another Taskmaster fan here. COVID watching of the highest order! Silly, fun and can really make you laugh :D

  87. Kay says...

    Mark Ruffalo young and cute and Mark Ruffalo older and handsome and activist!!

  88. caitlin says...

    I have a strange crush on Trixie & Katya, in or out of drag. I’m a mostly straight cis women yet… here we are.

  89. L says...

    Timothee Chalamet. My first celebrity crush in several years. I fantasize about him probably more than I should!

  90. Katie says...

    Sterling K Brown…I mean, that smile.

  91. Julie says...

    Kyle Chandler.

  92. Sarah says...

    Always and forever Rob Delaney. Swooooon.

  93. Sharon says...

    Three out of five for me. Oscar, Dev, and Luke Kirby (Love him as Lenny Bruce)

  94. Em says...

    I’d love to spend the morning with Will Shortz and the evening with Jason Statham. There is a good chance I likely won’t understand the majority of what either of them is saying….but still my answer to this question for ten years running ❤️

  95. rachel simmons says...

    after watching Peanut butter falcon I can’t get over how sexy shia labeouf was in it!! sweaty, dirty ,rough, bearded, but so tender hearted. GIMMIE

  96. Britt says...

    Sydney Sweeney! I love her bright and open personality and her diverse style in all of her projects.

  97. rachel simmons says...

    a.k.a. the post where I google a bunch of mens names lol

    • MB says...

      OMG!!!!! This is me right now! I don’t know who 1/2 of the people are so I have a second browser open. Copy, paste. Copy, paste…. Happy to see that I’m not the only one. (I can think of worse ways to spend my time.)

    • Nigerian Girl says...

      Me too.

    • Maree says...

      Hahaha! Same! I thought I was the only one

    • Sarah says...

      Just googled Riz Ahmed…

  98. Megan says...

    Dr. Fauci!
    Bill Hader!
    Riz Ahmed!

  99. Joaquina says...

    Pesro Pascal

    • Sarah says...

      Omg I have such a crush on him from Mandalorian and I CAN’T EVEN SEE HIS FACE. He has such an energy though, phewwww!

  100. Jennie says...

    This is a no-judgement zone, so…

    Greg O’Shea from season 5 of Love Island UK. Forever and ever and ever.

  101. Olivia says...

    I have spent the past month or two just fantasizing about marrying Jamie from Outlander. Oh my god, please, can he just be real. Good god. (Sam Heughan, ha). Hoooo boy I am in love and am now reading all the books too.

    • Katrina says...

      Same here! Spent first half of the year under quarantine and ended up watching Outlander to pass the time…Never thought I’d fall so head over heels “in love” as a result! My husband finds it so amusing haha.

    • Meredith says...

      Please get yourself to Men in Kilts. He’s so charming in it. And it’s like a mini brain vacation to Scotland. My husband calls it visual Get Sleepy (a sleep podcast).

    • Olivia says...

      Hahaha I’m glad I’m not the only infatuated one :) will def watch men in kilts!

    • Deidre says...

      Same. I’ve got it bad… My previous crushes (Paul Rudd, Trevor Noah and even Jared Leto) don’t even come close.

  102. Chiara says...

    *singing in a Jean Ralphio voice* PAAAAAADMAAA LAAAAKSHMI. I think I would straight-up burst into flame if I ever saw her in real life.

    • rme says...

      I met her once and took a picture with her! She was STUNNING IRL. Honestly maybe the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen face to face.

    • Emily says...

      Padma is the total package—STUNNING, smart, funny, talented. Every time she comes on the TV screen I turn to my husband and comment on how gorgeous she is!

  103. Cate says...

    Michiel Huisman…LOVE. And I’m not a big celebrity crush person :)

    • Maryn says...

      Ooo, YES! I forgot about him! LOVE HIM SO MUCH

    • Kelli says...

      Ohmygosh. I had a years-long crush on him after Orphan Black and his stint on GOT. Feels like he’s still pretty under-the-radar, nice to know there’s another fan girl out there 😍.

    • jillian says...

      yes yes yes! His character in The Guernsey, etc, etc, is IDEAL!

  104. Cindy A says...

    Michael Fassbender
    Jon Hamm
    Sterling K. Brown
    Timothee Chalamet
    Beyonce

  105. My lifelong beloved is Colin Firth and a more recent addition is Adam Driver. They each perform complex, multi-layered roles, and yet I imagine them to be simple, kind men in real life. Wowza, all the love!

    • Lacey says...

      Erica- we are the same person!

  106. Prince Harry! is my contribution. His love for and support of Meghan, his mom’s compassionate spirit coming through, his awesome rebelliousness and everything good they are going to do together…. so many other good ones mentioned! (Stanley Tucci, Keanu, *Kathryn Hahn*!!…)

    • Court says...

      Prince Harry is mine too!
