Tbh all of these crushes were passionately reawakened while making this list.
  1. Tony Toponi from "An American Tail"
    3ccb3da6 4098 4668 bdeb abdc265dcba6
    That floppy hair... that Brooklyn accent... that general "if I weren't a small mouse I'd be in Newsies" vibe... totally irresistible.
  2. This dude who really liked Crocodile Dundee's jacket in "Crocodile Dundee II"
    294b25c1 b559 4803 af01 130a68dcd022
    I don't really know what his deal was or why I was allowed to see this movie as a little one, but I definitely remember quoting him a lot and thinking he was cute. Have since learned his name was Rat. One of my more questionable crushes.
  3. Adrien Brody in "King Kong"
    5c8e9676 3819 4b0b a1f6 b98278d9970b
    Not even an 11-year-old is immune to the seductive power of Adrien Brody murmuring "isn't it obvious?"
  4. Angelo from "Shadows in the Glasshouse" (an American Girl History Mystery)
    D50445aa d7b4 4500 ae06 23cdf8e374e4
    Even if "sexual tension" wasn't a thing I knew about then, I could still feel something burning between Angelo and Merry and I was THERE for it. Plus, just think about those glass worker forearms!
  5. Tony Danza in "Angels in the Outfield"
    Db61a16d 0d42 4c85 8014 10521fc61acd
    If Tony Danza ever found out how many wistful nights I spent as a 5-year-old planning our wedding he probably wouldn't have been as weirded out as if he found out how many wistful nights I spent imagining myself as his beautiful widow when his character died from lung cancer.
