I remember my first celeb crush well. Devon Sawa. As a child of the nineties, you can probably understand my obsession. Devon Sawa was in films like Casper (though he was only in it for like a minute) and The Little Giants (my absolute fave film as a kid!). I swear I watched The Little Giants about five times a week, maybe more!
As a young girl, and adult really, I had a very active imagination, and I would reenact the film in my mind, though I would pretend I was the girl he fell for. I mean, come on, I was a kid, and Devon Sawa was hot! He was right up there with JTT for me.
I guess JTT was another one of my celeb crushes, but I really, really liked Devon Sawa. I seriously think it was The Little Giants that sealed the deal for me on him as far as falling for him first. Then, it was all things JTT. And after JTT, I discovered N’Sync and Justin Timberlake.
I’ve always had a thing for celebrities, but I suspect most do. There’s something alluring about them, and though my celebrity crush changes based on what TV show I’m obsessed with, I still remember my childhood crushes very well. Some days, I miss those feelings: watching a show/movie just to see the hottie in it, that feeling of giddiness associated with being a teenage girl seeing her crush. There’s a bit of nostalgia even as I write this post and seeing these actors on the big screen still brings back those feelings.
I’ll never forget you, Devon Sawa.
