|A Tiger Beat from 1972 which is probably where I got my poster of David Cassidy|
|Pa Ingalls (Michael Landon) was another early crush|
Michael Landon was probably my next minor crush, as I watched Little House on the Prairie every week. I loved the books and I adored the television show. I still have my "autographed" photo of the Little House cast as I sent a fan letter to California in the 1970s and they sent me the photo in return. I think I liked Pa Ingalls more as a father figure, but he was rather cute. I wished I was Half-Pint for a good chunk of the 1970s.
|As you wish, Westley (Cary Elwes)|
However, 1987 brought me not only my future husband, but also Westley (aka Cary Elwes) who are forever united in my mind as The Princess Bride was our first date movie. Ah, Westley. Sigh! As you wish...
|Oh, Mr. Darcy! Colin Firth was my 1990s crush|
|Hugh Grant as Edward Ferrars|
|Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon|
|Ciaran Hinds as Captain Wentworth|
|Jeremy Northam as Mr. Knightley|
|Richard Armitage as Mr. Thornton.|
Of course, I am rather fickle with my "crushes". I have had a few sighs over Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightley in the new 2009 version of Emma.
|Jonny Lee Miller. Angelina Jolie has good taste in men (except for Billy Bob!)|
|Daniel Deronda- two Hughs and some fabulous dresses|
Sorry Richard, it looks like I may have to watch either Daniel Deronda this week, or finish watching my DVD of Downton Abbey for the second time. So many leading men, so little time.
