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. H says...

    Oh, definitely the Korean actor Hyun Bin and his character Captain Ri in Crash Landing on You. It’s been a year since I’ve watched this series, and Captain Ri remains my number one :)

    • S says...

      Could not agree more! ❤️

    • Carolina Bu says...

      Captain Ri was THE actual perfect, beautiful, emotionally intelligent gentleman gah actually I think I will start my 3rd re-watch of Crash Landing tonight! haha thanks for the inspo

    • Clare says...

      I absolutely second this! All the little moments when his serious exterior was interrupted by sweet or silly instincts :) :)

    • la says...

      watching this show right now and um, YES!

  2. L says...

    Um, Alex, did anyone say Alex? Can we say Alex? Meant in the most respectable way – looking at you, KB. He definitely seems like a Sauce Man.

  3. Steph says...

    Joaquin Phoenix and Post Malone. lol

  4. L says...

    Uh huh. *Nodding head*

  5. Alex says...

    Kathryn Hahn and Steven Yeun. Heart eyes!!!!

  6. Lisa Kim says...

    Daniel Dae Kim. Swoon.

    • Gretchen says...

      Ooh, this is a good pick.

  7. Emily says...

    After watching the recording of Hamilton on Disney+, I have been reading everything online I can about Daveed Diggs! I honestly am never usually one for a celebrity crush, but someone that talented who is also super attractive? Swoon. Also, I’ve been binging Schitts creek lately and totally want Dan Levy to be my BFF, does that count?

  8. A says...

    Marc Maron. I cannot be alone in this?!!

    • Mara says...

      I had a dream about him a few weeks ago and have been crushing on him ever since. So no, you’re not alone.

  9. Mary says...

    I haven’t seen any k-drama actors mentioned here! Hyun Bin from Crash landing on You! Park Seo-Joon from itaewon Class and Song Joong-ki from Descendants of the Sun! And all of BTS ha! I wish more people watched K dramas in the USA, I am always trying to get people to watch them so I can talk about them! I got into them during Covid as we were not able to travel, which was a huge part of my life before, and it was nice seeing another culture and country being portrayed (food, customs etc). As soon as my 3 year old can get vaccinated, and it’s ok to travel internationally, we are going to South Korea and Japan to visit/eat all the food/buy all the skin care products. I can”t wait!!

    • S says...

      I love this! Became addicted to k dramas during the pandemic.

    • Carolina Bu says...

      Oh man YES Hyun Bin, Kim Soo-Hyun, and Kim Seon-Ho (I’m still torn up over Start-Up) are my top 3 K-drama crushes *swoon*. And, of course, all seven BTS members they are so incredibly talented and basically the living antithesis of toxic masculinity.

  10. Diane says...

    Iris Elba!!!! No competition for me.

  11. Nade says...

    Forest Whitaker, amazing actor!

  12. Jan W says...

    Gotta say Chris Hemsworth (face, smile, accent) and dating myself with Robert Pattinson (1st Twilight movie)

  13. Emma says...

    Milo Ventimiglia! And I guess since no one else has commented with his name, that means he’s free :)

    • Lorraine says...

      I second this one!

  14. Amy says...

    Chris Evans! Fellow Massachusetts native and Captain America!

  15. Maclean Nash says...

    PAUL RUDD! PAUL RUDD! PAUL RUDD!
    Forever. For always.
    When I am feeling low I will watch his Hot Ones interview and my mood will always be lifted.
    SwoonCity!

    • Brittny says...

      Paul Rudd!!! <3 <3 <3

    • Dayna says...

      Yes! Eternally young, why has he looked the same for the past 20 years? It’s the smile, eyes and silliness for me.

  16. Caraline says...

    Tucci is a fox!!

  17. Evie says...

    Marc Maron is so sexy to me

  18. Kathy says...

    Park Bo Gum. So sad I have a year and a half left of deprivation.

  19. Jamie says...

    Henry Cavill. Though, he’s so fit I would be so self-conscious around him. But…sigh…
    I don’t even watch most of his stuff. I just like to look at him, lol.

    • Maclean Nash says...

      I only have been attracted to Henry Cavill in The Witcher! He rocks that long blonde wig just like Orlando Bloom did in LOTR! And the accent…oooooh the accent!

  20. Junie says...

    Lou diamond phillips! Ever since I saw Stand and Deliver in high school, so this is a decades long thing haha

  21. Jenny says...

    Hands down, Gael Garcia Bernal. THAT FACE. Gahhhhgeous!!

  22. Kelly M says...

    Henry Cavill. Do I want to watch Superman/Justice League movies my husband asks? Umm yes please! Anytime. Totally his man crush also! Also love Keanu Reeves always and forever. And Colin Firth.

  23. Tracy says...

    I love this question. I’m not a big celebrity crush person but fell hard for Outlander’s Sam Heughan after binging all 5 seasons recently. And I absolutely adore all the people voting for Stanley Tucci.

    • Katrina says...

      You’re not alone sister! :)

  24. M. says...

    Roberta Colindrez! I’m dead just looking at her pictures, but she could come revive me anytime.

  25. Laura says...

    This is a deep cut and really 90s vintage. I’ve been on an 80s/90s rock kick recently, and I have developed a huge crush on Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme. The long gorgeous hair, the nose ring, the tattoos, the guitar skills. Woof. He was stunning as a 20-something in the 90s, but he’s aged BEAUTIFULLY. Oh man. He can get it.

  26. Susan says...

    Okay, Ville Valo Finnish metal singer. He use to be in a band called HIM. OMG something about him just makes me melt. Also Robert Fuller!!! He is unbelievablely sexy! He was in a western from the 60s Laramie and Emergency! about paramedics and a hospital. The man seriously get my blood pressure up!

  27. Eloise says...

    Dave Grohl.

    • jw says...

      YES! you are correct.

    • Ann says...

      Yes! Yes! Yes!

  28. K says...

    Continues to be Stacey Abrams

    • Sarah says...

      Yes! I love basketball, too, but not as much as I love democracy.

  29. Emily says...

    Dan Souza of America’s Test Kitchen fame.

  30. DawnS says...

    Noah Reid- Patrick on Schitt’s Creek! Swoon!

    • Beth says...

      Yep!

  31. annie says...

    TOM. HIDDLESTON.
    see also: loki. :) how can a girl resist that hair? the eyes? those mischievous grins? i, for one, cannot.

    • kate says...

      Oh my gosh, I just watched The Night Manager and it was impossible to take my eyes off of him. I was equally as struck by Elizabeth Debicki.

    • Megan says...

      Yes to both Tom and Elizabeth! He is gorgeous and she is mesmerizing!!

    • annie says...

      yesss!! kate + megan, you two are my celeb crush spirit animals

  32. Loesie says...

    So here goes:
    * Michael Weatherly…Some days I just want to be with him while he wears a big old dark blue woolen jumper, have a hot beverage, and hide in his arms.
    * Chris O’Donnell’s running on a random pier in LA always makes my heart beat faster.
    * Ryan Reynolds… I sure wouldn’t mind running into him with only a towel in front of us in some extremely woody beautiful cabin in Alaska…
    * Kiefer Sutherland’s voice makes me want to have him be the voice of my autobiography audiobook. It sure would make my life’s story a lot sexier.
    * But maybe most of all Ryan Eggold… so…everything 😊

  33. YES to Steph! I just love him! I also love Michael B. Jordan!

    • Lila says...

      Yes and yes, Maria! I think we were all deeply effected by that Alexa commercial. Also, Elladj Baldé. His Instagram videos, wow.

    • A says...

      Ditto. It’s been them, for many many years! Funny story: I have physically run into both of them. Literally. I walked into Steph Curry at a massive Super Bowl Party and I walked into Michael B. Jordan’s entourage at SFO airport… I stopped right before I ran into him with piping hot coffee.

    • Carolina Bu says...

      MICHAEL B JORDAN!!! Man I can’t believe I forgot to include him in my list *swoons eternally*

  34. Carolina Bu says...

    All seven members of the musical septet BTS. They are the antithesis of toxic masculinity. Oh and, of course, Taika Waititi.
    p.s. No I am not a teenage girl, I am a 30 year old woman haha

    • Charlotte says...

      Totally Carolina, Taika for sure. So funny, so smart, so handsome, and that accent…goodness!

  35. L says...

    I’ve said it before here and I’ll say it again… Lakeith Stanfield. I’m so happy his career is going great! Also historically and always and forever Mos Def (Yasin Bey). And yes Steph is adorable as well as being an astounding talent and seemingly lovely human ;)

    • Kate says...

      I love Lakeith! The Photograph…swoon.

    • Deidre says...

      Yes, Lakeith, yes!

  36. Silver says...

    When I was about ten I ‘loved’ Gil Gerard – from Buck Rogers in the 25th century. Since then, no fan crushes. Not even a tiny one. It’s weird, because I’m not so cool that I don’t fall for trends – I look at female stars and wish I had their limbs, or clothes or hair (it’s always the hair) …. but famous stars do not bend my heart to any small degree.

  37. Nigerian Girl says...

    Chris Evans. My crush has evolved into full-blown love.

  38. Samantha says...

    Kathryn Hahn 😍😍

    • Elizabeth says...

      This is the correct answer.

    • Sarah says...

      SO GOOD in WandaVision!!

  39. monica says...

    Alex Turner, of course!

    • Jenny says...

      <3

  40. Leslie-Anne says...

    Any and all Jonas brothers.

  41. Tara says...

    This year Jennifer Gardner really shone through. My girlfriends and I just kept thinking CAN WE BE HER FRIEND? Recently, I’ve really been longing for one really rich friend, I feel like Jen could be it. Her cooking videos really steal my heart and I even love her mom? I know TOO MUCH.

    We could drink and do dances and talk shit about her ex Ben’s bad back tattoo. I have an ex husband Ben too! SO MUCH in common.

    ALSO, Duke, Regé-Jean Page. Him explaning how to masturbate to Daphne. There truly are no words but the last few episodes of Bridgerton. I may have re-watched a few if you know YOU KNOW.

    Oddly Aiden from Sex in the City, the furniture guy. Really feel like he was a good egg. His furniture studio was SEXY. We all know that will not pay the rent in NYC but dam he was FINE. That water fountain scene still hurts.

  42. Amy says...

    Any of the Peloton instructors!!!

    • Joy says...

      haha right?! man or woman.

    • Ann says...

      Yes! I would have to agree!

  43. Rachel says...

    Idris Elba
    Finally watching Peaky Blinders and YOWZA Cillian Murphy
    George Clooney always and forever.

  44. In middle school I wasn’t out as gay yet, so I had to make up a straight celebrity crush to fit in with my boy obsessed friends who were lusting after Orlando Bloom and various other broody hunks. For whatever reason I landed on… Seth Green. Why? I have no idea! I really liked the name Seth? He seemed… fun? But anyway I COMMITTED! and stood by my choice for a couple of years, despite having only briefly seen him in Buffy. To this day whenever someone brings up a celebrity crush Seth Green circa 2002 is the first person who comes to my mind.

  45. Chelsey N says...

    Daveed Diggs, without question (also highly recommend 2018’s drama blindspotting that he stars in)

    • Annie says...

      OMG same! he’s so charming, talented and handsome!

  46. B says...

    Longtime crush on Bradley Whitford circa the early 2000s as Josh Lyman in the West Wing.

    • Laura Schultz says...

      obviously!!

    • lk says...

      word!!!!!

  47. RB says...

    I have been a proud Cumberbitch ever since I saw Atonement in 2011, and have loved Pedro Pascal since Game of Thrones. It does not really matter that in The Mandalorian we rarely see his face….And vintage celebrity crush? A young George Chakiris!

    • Caraline says...

      Okay this made me laugh because Cumberbatch plays a creepy guy in Atonement….but I do love him as an actor and Pedro, too!

  48. KW says...

    HARRY STYLES, no question. Swoontown.

    • jan says...

      such a cutie!

    • Paula says...

      I was going through the comments thinking “Haven’t American girls discovered Harry Style yet?” :) After his Grammys performance… Brad Pitt, Sorry!!!

  49. Mathieu Kassovitz (The Bureau) !!!

  50. Eliza says...

    Sam Heughan. I mean, the man gets hotter by the day.
    Matt Bomer –he was great in The Sinner.

  51. Amanda says...

    My husband and I just had this conversation not too long ago and we’ve had it before in our 15 year relationship. My how our tastes can evolve and change over the years lol!
    My celebrity crush is Stanley Tucci!! 1000%, just something about him makes me feel content and inspired all at the same time.
    2nd is Ryan Bingham(Yellowstone!)
    3rd up is Travis Barker(tattoos are my thing I guess) lol

    • jms3 says...

      Yes! There’s just something about him.

    • L says...

      Wow, that Sauce Man article was as satisfying as a short story. I found myself attracted both “Sauce Men” Meryl and Stanley in Julie & Julia.

    • Kate says...

      100% he would totally be shorter than me but who cares ❤️❤️❤️

  52. CR says...

    Eric Baja. Always and forever.

    • CR says...

      Eric BANA. 🤦🏼‍♀️

    • rachel simmons says...

      lol! google Eric Baja… I was like, um ok, I mean everyone has their own taste… :P

  53. Mary says...

    Rege-Jean Page

    • Andrea says...

      SECONDING, oh, sorry, was I yelling?

  54. Everyday I ask myself – how did Dr. Anthony Fauci not win sexiest man alive 2020???

  55. Chickie Baby says...

    My long-standing crush is Don Johnson. Starting with Miami Vice, and that ember juuuust keeps smoldering.

    • Carol says...

      Same! I could watch him all day!

  56. Pablo Pascal! *fans self* I had no idea who he was before I watched the Mandalorian. Only got to see his face a few times in that show but he made an impression!

    Also Dan Levy. God I love his face.

  57. Hayley says...

    Oscar Isaac!
    Ethan Hawke
    Andrew Scott (Hot Priest)
    Luke Kirby (Lenny Bruce in MMM!)
    Dev Patel

    • Eva says...

      Umm did we just become best friends?

    • Hayley says...

      Haha, YES!

      Also, Marc Maron, anyone? He’s my black sheep crush.

  58. Claire says...

    Joanna, I went down a rabbit hole and could not stop watching this hilarious and adorable video of NBA players’ kids hanging out during the after-game interviews! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj_dqvDSMjU

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      omg so cute!!!!

    • Sarah says...

      Thank you! I didn’t know that had been missing from my life.

  59. e says...

    Pandemic crush- Sanjay Gupta. Yes RANDOM!

    • Siri says...

      Jacob Fortune-Lloyd from Queen’s Gambit. I just assumed he would be on the top of everyone’s list!

  60. N says...

    Alexander Skaarsgard, Cillian Murphy.

    • Trudy says...

      Stellan Skaarsgard, Alexander’s father, seems sexy and intelligent to me – a deadly combo.

  61. Lorraine says...

    This post is 3 hours old and there’s only 2 votes for Rege-Jean Page?! :D

    • ECM says...

      Oh, I am definitely on the RJP train!

    • Molly says...

      I’m 38 years old and feel a little creepy admitting he’s my celebrity crush 😆

    • Savannah says...

      Yes!! And feel the same way as the other 38 year old! Lol

    • Anna says...

      LOL! I almost posted it as soon as the article was up and then I was like, “Slow down, these COJ ladies are sophisticated, don’t be so OBVIOUS, Anna.” But yes I am insanely in love with him in a way I have never reacted to an actor on screen. My husband just rolls his eyes.

    • Sarah says...

      I’m 39, and no shame, he is just, wow. Gives me the shivers just thinking about him! And I literally NEVER have celebrity crushes.

    • TMJ says...

      Not creepy at all. I’m 60 and have a crush on him. We all need our fantasies. Also surprised his name hasn’t cropped up more often.

    • Amanda says...

      Yes and to my fellow 38-39 year old ladies, he is only a couple years younger (31) than us so not creepy at all!

  62. Caroline says...

    Will Sharpe for his talent and his looks!!

  63. Vera says...

    Tobias Menzies (!)

    • Loesie says...

      His voice!!!!! Swoon swoon swoon soooo warm and rough and sexy and and and need I go on? 😊

    • Caraline says...

      Have you seen This Way Up? Gawww he is so crush-worthy!!

  64. maywyn says...

    Ensembles crush here. NCIS all of them, and the new show Debris. The Debris ensemble is small, but well crafted with believable characters. New Scandanavian Cooking with Andreas Viestad is my television show crush.

  65. jw says...

    Kate McKinnon & Stanley Tucci! All the heart eyes.

    • Another JW says...

      I don’t really have celebrity crushes but was scrolling for fun. When I saw your comment, I was like “Of course Stanley Tucci!” He’s so wonderful in his Italy Food show and I just love the way he dresses. The show was tying me over till the next British Baking Show.

  66. Tiff says...

    OBVIOUSLY Stanley Tucci, but the longest running ones for me are John Krasinski (coincidentally Tucci’s brother-in-law) and Jason Sudeikis.

    • Andrea says...

      oh 1000% Jason Sudeikis, especially Ted-Lasso-era Sudeikis. Fellow Lasso fans, if you haven’t watched this yet, you have a treat in store:
      https://tedlassoevent.com

  67. Hannah says...

    I’ve been watching a lot of Hoarders lately and now I’ve ended up with a weird crush on Matt Paxton, organiser extraordinaire.

  68. Sherrie says...

    Stanley Tucci forever!

    • Carolina Bu says...

      I absolutely second this sentiment

  69. Haley Bridges says...

    All the heart eyes for Jason Segel! <3

    • Laura says...

      Yes!! So happy there’s a vote for Jason Segel here!!

    • Beth says...

      Yes!!

  70. Kelly Griffith says...

    Paul Rudd, Jason Bateman. I guess I like the kinda nerdy, hilarious guys!

    • Ivy says...

      HERE FOR IT!

    • Kristin says...

      Me too!!! And throw Stanley Tucci in too for me.

  71. theBAC says...

    We’re allowed more than one, right?!?!?!?? Diego Luna from Narcos Mexico, Gabriel Macht and Sebastian Stan.

  72. Hannah says...

    I usually have a new celebrity crush every Oscars season, but this pandemic has meant that I watch nothing but YouTube with my five year old. So it’s going to have to be a Minecraft-youtuber, one of the Dude Perfect guys, or the dad from the Holderness family for me!

  73. kayla says...

    sam hunt! i worry that he’s problematic but daaaaaaamn,

    • Shannon says...

      Hahaha YES omg! “Drinking Too Much” acoustic version gets me every time 😍

  74. Haley says...

    Alexander Skarsgård 100% – even if he wasn’t a celebrity but just a regular man walking down the street I would still swoon!

    • Joy says...

      he is beautiful.

  75. Elaine says...

    I am just always crushing on the members of BTS! :3 Three members (V, Suga, J-Hope) went live recently with a whole spread of cafe ingredients, hot water, blender etc and asked us to comment on what drinks we want them to make! It was so adorable watching them make the drinks and taste them, pretending they were baristas. They’ve been my quarantine lifesavers, honestly with their music and all their performances and other content

    • Lia says...

      Ahh yes! They are just sooooooooooooo cute!

    • SUSAN MILLS says...

      My 28 year old daughter is totally in love with all of them!

    • Carolina Bu says...

      They are seriously so beautiful and talented and sweet, sometimes I wonder if they’re not actually fictional characters who are written by an empowered female author lol! Either way, their music and content have gotten me through the hardest chunks of my life so far and they will forever be my Top Seven Celebrity Crushes.

  76. Sadie says...

    Tobin Heath on the USWNT, she is so swaggy.

  77. Carla says...

    There are so many crush-worthy guys on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, but I am particularly smitten with John Clarence Stewart, who plays Simon, the PR spokesperson for the fictional tech company. So dreamy!

  78. Amanda says...

    Wyatt Russell! Can’t get enough Lodge 49.

  79. Carla says...

    There are so crush-worthy guys on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, but I am particularly smitten with John Clarence Stewart, who plays Simon, the PR spokesperson for the fictional tech company. So dreamy!

  80. Emily says...

    Jasons — Sudeikis and Batemen!

  81. Laura says...

    Max Minghella (from The Handmaid’s Tale). Woah.

    • Sage says...

      YES. Great one. Totally agree.

  82. Laura F says...

    I’m listening to Sharon Stone’s new memoir right now. She’s my lady crush.

  83. Laura J says...

    Stanley Tucci and Gal Godot.

  84. Alexis says...

    Oh gosh. Well I can tell you that the Marvel Legends figures are pretty accurate to how they look in movies. Because I bought Ant Man (Paul Rudd), Killmonger (Michael BAE Jordan), and the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) under the guise that my kiddo would play with them. HA HA HA!
    I’ve also picked up Grey’s Anatomy again and whenever Giacomo Gianniotti starts speaking Italian, I feel a certain kind of way.
    Also Eddie Redmayne.

    And Winona Ryder, forever and ever.

    Steph Curry is amazing btw. I saw him play at MSG years ago when he was still at Villanova – even back then you could tell he was going to be a phenom on the court!

    • Alexis says...

      Also…if we can talk characters and not necessarily the actors…
      Daniel Desario
      Tim Riggins
      Jordan Catalano

      I’m doomed.

    • Beth says...

      Tim Riggins!!

  85. Kate says...

    Harrison Ford, forever and ever and always.

  86. Katia L Companioni says...

    Eddie Redmayne!

  87. Carolyn says...

    Steven Yeun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. Rachel says...

    Daniel Ricciardo! Check out Netflix’s show on Formula 1. I adore his cheeky ways and accent!

    • Brittney Berget says...

      oooh i agree! and that australian accent!

    • Kate says...

      Omg I came here to say Carlos Sainz! LOVE that show – now I’m so into Formula 1 haha.

    • Kathryn says...

      I am not into Formula 1 at all, but strangely obsessed with that show! Daniel Riccaiardo just seems like a fun and uplifting person to be around!

    • Rebecca says...

      YES! So many babes in F1, but Daniel is #1

    • Stacy S says...

      20 year old me would have been all about Daniel Ricciardo and Charles Leclerc!

  89. Anna says...

    Columbus Short – I’m catching up on Scandal!

  90. Diana K says...

    Clive Owen. Babemobile

  91. Jemma says...

    Daveed Diggs & Adam Driver. Ongoing….

  92. Laura Schultz says...

    Christopher Jackson and Daveed Diggs, from Hamilton, for sure.

  93. KB says...

    HARRY STYLES all the way. Dating an older woman, and did you see that Grammy’s performance?!

    • Shannon says...

      I, believe it or not, was mostly unaware of the existence of Harry Styles before the Grammy awards. Honestly, he really shouldn’t be allowed to do that when some of us have been locked up alone for a year.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      hahahaha

    • Kelly says...

      My 16 year old daughter has been in LOVE with Harry since his One Direction days and I honestly didn’t get the appeal until that Grammy’s performance. I mean, that was something else. I’m still recovering.

    • Amy says...

      Ummm yes! And Shannon: lolol well said!!

  94. Chelsi L Rodriguez says...

    I have TWO.

    1) Athlete: Scott Jurek
    2) Actor: Bill Hader (always and forever)

    • Catherine says...

      Yessss Bill Hader! Funny, cute, speaks out about mental health.

    • Morgan L Steele says...

      Was shocked to see Scott Jurek on this list (thought I was the only one!)

    • Danielle says...

      I see Scott Jurek around town all the time! Probably the only time I can say that about someone’s celebrity crush.

    • Tiff says...

      heck yes to Hader!

  95. Eva says...

    Just saw Sound of Metal and currently swooning over Riz Ahmed

    • Emma says...

      Oh man, how GOOD was his performance in that movie? I’ve been obsessed with Riz since “The Night Of” and his stint on “Girls.” Hottie.

  96. Tracy says...

    Henry Golding from Crazy Rich Asians! And Kyle Chandler (specifically his FNL character, for some weird reason)!!

    • maria says...

      there is no reason that’s weird for loving Coach Taylor. :-)

    • C says...

      Nothing weird about crushing on coach taylor!!!!!!!

    • Samantha says...

    • Joy says...

    • Tracy says...

      Okay, I KNEW you were my people!!!

    • Brittny says...

      Coach Taylor forever and ever and ever <3

    Ha! I love this community so much! I’m emphatically nodding my head along while reading each of these comments.

    My forever celebrity crush is Rachel Maddow. My husband and I listen to her every morning while making breakfast. She’s smart, wry and I really appreciate her storytelling skills. I also love how human she comes across, like when her partner was sick with the virus earlier this year or when she’s reporting on a particularly saddening event.

    We just watched Sound of Metal so my newish celebrity crush is Riz Ahmed! So many heart eyes for that guy.

  98. Karen says...

    Rege-Jean Page and Ewan McGregor. No explanation for Rege-Jean (that eyebrow lift!) Ewan is a new find; my husband and I just finished his motorcycle trip from the southern tip of South America to LA, and I fell in love. He is so incredibly cute, earnest, and funny. I just want someone to look at me the way that Ewan looks at a dog.

  99. Christina says...

    Ewan McGregor. Because of Long Way Round and Christopher Robin. That smile…..

    • Mandy says...

      Ohhhh I so agree his smile 😍😍

    • Emily says...

      If you’re an ewan macgregor fan you should watch his motorcycling documentary where he and a friend ride from Aregentina to LA on e-bikes. lots of swoon worthy moments :)

  100. Elisa says...

    Paul Mescal (Normal People) held my torch for all of 2020 but Paul Rudd will always hold a special place in my heart.

    • Brittny says...

      YES! Paul Mescal and his chain.

    • Beth says...

      Paul Mescal!!!

    • Sarah says...

      Paul Mescal is amazing. I have been waiting to see his name here. I knew I couldn’t be the only one.

  101. Mouse says...

    Ooohhhh that handshake…..divine.

    My best friend and I used to watch movies with David Straithairn and just hit stop so we could swoon better. And then many many years later I married my husband, who I recently realized is a remarkable version of David Straithairn…..salt and pepper, bearded, quiet, etc

    Yeah, I’m old….:)

    • Kim says...

      I get it. His voice is hot!

    • Catherine says...

      He is in Nomadland with Frances McDormand.

  102. CC says...

    haha, yes, SAME to Pete Davidson!

  103. Brittny says...

    Middle School: Freddie Prinze Jr.
    College: Jake Gyllenhaal
    My 20’s: Liam Hemsworth
    Today (My almost mid-30’s): Dax Shepard, Michael B. Jordan
    Forever Crushes: Tom Hanks, Barack Obama

    • Maeve says...

      Are we the same person? SAME!!! + Matt Damon today (32 YO).

  104. Suse says...

    Matthew Frank. He is a prosecutor in the Derek Chauvin trial. Compassion and empathy are quite sexy.

  105. I just started watching Gardeners’ World on BBC and now I’m pining for the host who seems good with dogs, plants, and clothes. Somehow his name is Monty, but that’s not for me to question. He gets all the heart eyes.

    • Jessica says...

      There was a pretty recent NYTimes profile of Monty Don. You will not believe what he was up to in the 80s!

    • Kathryn says...

      Don’t miss Big Dreams, Small Spaces on Netflix, another worthy Monty Don diversion!

  106. Kim says...

    Jake Gyllenhaal, always and forever. And we saw his play Sea Wall/A Life for my 40th birthday trip to NYC and I got a picture with him afterwards. My love for him is well known, so seeing people’s reactions on my social media when I posted the picture was the best. :)

    • Sage says...

      Absolute forever crush for me too. Mad jelly :)

  107. Wink says...

    Trevor Noah is my RL crush. Smart, funny, with those charming dimples! I also love his Covid hair and hoodies. He’s been a pandemic bright spot. Fantasy crush: Jamie from Outlander, dear God.

    • A says...

      Trevor’s always been handsome, but his pandemic hair and hoodies are really making me lose my breath! Also, smart and funny (the audiobook of Born a Crime had me in LOL tears) and charming in a non-smarmy way. Love him.

    • Kate says...

      Jamie YES, both the literary version in my mind and Sam Heughan. Dear god is right. Dear god.

  108. Nicole A. says...

    I was literally just talking to my coworker about how adorable he and his family are. Great minds think alike!

  109. Marisa says...

    I’m finally watching Schitt’s Creek after reading so much about it here– Daniel Levy is just the CUTEST!! That kind of embarrassed grin of his is just the best!

    • Kath says...

      Agree!!

  110. Illana says...

    Oh no, Lady. You’ll have to fight me for Steph. Find and watch his first MVP speech. He had me already but that sealed it. Such an incredible role model!

    Also Jason Sudeikis!! Ted Lasso was glorious and I can hardly wait for Season 2 in the fall. I guess I’m a sucker for the sweethearts who might have a teeny edge.

    • Maryn says...

      Seconding Jason Sudeikis! Swoon.

  111. Sarah says...

    Henry Cavill and Bill Hader. Hands down.

    • Kate says...

      I never thought I’d see these two in the same sentence but you’re exactly right.

  112. Janey says...

    Rene-Jean Page! He played the Duke in Bridgerton. I think he’s possibly the most beautiful human I’ve ever seen!! He read the bedtime story on CBeebies (BBC kids channel) last week for mothers day and somehow even managed to smoulder reading a kids book. I’ve watched it about 10 times. Ha!

  113. Meghan says...

    Dan Levy!

    • Sydni says...

      Yep. All of my instagram suggested posts are him :D

  114. Emily says...

    Haha I think it’s fun you ask every year — I’m not a big celebrity crush person but always enjoy reading the comments. (does Lucy have a celebrity crush??)

  115. AG says...

    I was kind of obsessed with Nate Burleson last football season. He has incredible fashion sense and everything is tailored TO PERFECTION. I just can’t get over him! I am not exactly what you’d call a fashionista myself so not sure why I’m so into it on him.

  116. BB says...

    Jon Hamm. Enough said.

    • kayla says...

      the hammaconda!

  117. Lisa says...

    And what do we think Tommy Shelby would have to say about this ;)

    • Tiffani says...

      He wouldn’t give a damn, which is part of his allure ;)

  118. Ellie says...

    I know I’m not the only one crushing on Rege-Jean Page.

  119. Normally these days I find men a lot older than me to be the hottest –

    THAT SAID- Pete Davidson is my new serious celebrity crush because
    he seems like Trouble with a capital T.

  120. Linda Y says...

    he’s been showing support for the asian community by wearing special footwear!
    one was a pic of bruce lee.
    Curry’s shoes serve as a statement of solidarity with Asian Americans amid a recent spike in violence.
    how awesome is that!

  121. Jenny says...

    Keanu, forever and ever amen. He had me with that smile towards Sandra Bullock in Speed and sealed the deal as Johnny Utah in Point Break. Just look at the guy in the rain scene at the end. And then top that with him being the nice guy of Hollywood.
    When people treasure their partners/kids and are kind to others, it increases their “IT” factor 1000x for me.

    • Stacey says...

      Ooh yes, always Keanu! He’s not only attractive, but he seems to have a kind heart and be really considerate of others (especially women!).

    • Michelle says...

      What she said… 👍👍👍

    • Heather says...

      He is perfection in this commercial!

  122. Catherine says...

    Jason Sudeikis! I love his mustache in Ted Lasso and am so enamored with him right now!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      yes!!

    • RB says...

      Unfortunately for me Jason Sudeikis is “the baby-punching scout trooper who cannot hit a can standing a few feet away from him, and got owned by a lethal nanny droid, later who apologized to the baby for engaging in extreme violence in front of him”. That got complicated fast…

  123. Devin Law says...

    Oooo yes he is 100% swoon-worthy!

    Mine is Pedro Pascal.

    Heart. Eyes.

  124. Agnès says...

    Probably still and forever Barack Obama!! He is pure class and kindness and humour and he can dance and sing!

  125. m says...

    Matty Healy and George Daniel from the 1975

    • Kate says...

      That photo made my jaw drop. :)

  126. Sylvia says...

    My crush right now is Megan Thee Stallion! She’s such a hottie!

    • Jj says...

      Same! Everything about her is perfect.

  127. EFM says...

    Benedict Cumberbatch 4eva! hahaha (but seriously)

    • L says...

      Uh huh. *Nodding head*

  128. Liz says...

    Jo! Let me make your day: I went to college with Steph, and he truly is a very nice guy. :)

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      oh my gosh! that does make my day!

    • Elizabeth says...

      Wildcats 4Eva! I read this post and figured I wouldn’t be the only Davidson fan of Cup of Jo ❤️

  129. Tyler says...

    The grumpy team captain from Ted lasso :)

    • ROYYYY!!!

    • Twyla says...

      YES! Brett Goldstein! He has a great podcast called Films to Be Buried With. He’s adorably charming in it.

    • Emily says...

      Oh my gosh yes!!! he is so sexy

    • R says...

      Ahhh same here. Holding hands with his niece! Cooking for Keeley! The sweetness behind his grumpy exterior (plus great eyebrows) made me swoon.

  130. Annie says...

    It’s still Taylor Kitsch, you don’t have to ask me every 15 years!

    • Alicia says...

      Sameee! We just re-started FNL again too so I’m deep in crush mode now.

  131. Kaitlin says...

    What about historic celebrity crushes? I came across a photo of Mike Clemons, who was a major football player in Canada in the 90s and was like, “whoa, that smile!”

    • Brenna says...

      Mike “Pinball” Clemons! He was a speaker at a “historic” Christian youth rally I attended in Toronto in the 1990s, and as I recall, I thought he was a dork. 😂 Memories!!!

  132. Reina says...

    Harry Styles (I’m several years younger but 😍)

    • Lisa says...

      Lol I’m several years older and it’s Harry for me too! He’s universal.

  133. Morgan says...

    Stanley Tucci has my heart, especially now that I know he can make me a good cocktail!

  134. Sarah M says...

    Sebastian Stan. phew. watching the Falcon and the Winter Soldier over and over…

    • AW says...

      Same. SAME SAME. I wasn’t really into him while Cap was still in the picture, but he is def my new favorite.

    • theBAC says...

      OMG 100% all of this!

    • RB says...

      Have you seen the video of him dancing to the song Rasputin with Anthony Mackie? Cue his shoulder roll!

  135. Heather says...

    That Hamilton video is incredibly endearing and relatable – love it!

  136. I am a grown woman out of this phase of my life but I cannot get over Pete Davidson. Even my husband thinks he is oafishly irresistable.

    • Brenna says...

      Right there with you!!

  137. Carolyn says...

    Ted Lasso! I mean Jason Sudeikis…

  138. Lisa says...

    Harry Styles! I’m obsessed. He’s not just very attractive, he also appears to be a genuinely good human.

  139. a.n. says...

    oh my gosh, so….my husband and i just finished watching insecure on HBO – have you seen it? holy guacamole – it is full of attractive people, so hilarious and issa rae is just magnificent. anywayyyyy, she (issa rae) is my full blown crush (i’m a straight woman),. i can’t get over her! as far as the gentlemen go, i’m gonna be super basic and say harry styles – swoon.

  140. Brittney says...

    I always answer this question the same – Dev Patel forever & always <3 lol

    • Moriah Mason says...

      Brittney, I’m totally with you! Dev has been my #1 forever. For my bachelorette party, my friends and I did an art crawl in LA and went to a bunch of galleries. In the last gallery we ran into randomly ran into Dev and we all started acting like giddy school girls and couldn’t stop staring and swooning. One of my very bold friends went up to him and said “It’s my friend’s bachelorette party and you are her celebrity crush. Can she get a picture with you?” I was so embarrassed but grateful for that picture. It was such a special day I’ll never forget!

    • Ali says...

      The white Oscars tux?! ARE YOU KIDDING MEEEEEEEE SO HANDSOME

    • Brittney says...

      Moriah – you lucky duck! What a way to end your single days! ;)

    • J says...

      Thank goodness someone else said this! I was going to post a comment about Dev. It has been so wonderful to see his career bloom since his early days on Skins till now; he is talent and charm personified. Now if someone would only cast him as a leading man in a rom-com, that would be great… give the people what we want and deserve! His storyline on Modern Love was nice, but I want to see him in a proper rom-com ala 90s era Hugh Grant. I have a feeling Dev would be handsome and charming in it.

  141. Whitney says...

    My husband and I just started watching Peaky Blinders (finally), and now I’m on the Tommy Shelby swoon train. I remember seeing your post about him years ago and thinking, yeah ok, but now I GET it.

  142. Eli says...

    I didn’t realize how much I love Steph until reading this. I just have the biggest, cheesiest grin on my face. That lil’ shimmy! I may or may not do that when one of my spreadsheets ties… or I get a compliment from my head-boss man. :D

    Peter Sawkins – GBBO winner for Season 11. The way he is so giddy and excited and proud of himself during the season just makes me feel so good. I re-watched the season as soon as I finished just because he made me so happy (as well as both the Marks!)

    • Katie says...

      Dan Levy. The eyebrows! The facial expressions! The creativity!

  143. Barbara says...

    Kit Harrington and all his blue-blooded wonderfulness!

    • Carolina Bu says...

      I miss Jon Snow every day *cries*

  144. Katie says...

    You need to find the video his wife took of him rocking out to Phil Collins “In the Air Tonight” complete with steering wheel drum solo!

    I live in the Bay and I love Steph and his family. They do great stuff for students in Oakland!
