Celebrity Crush From Then to Now

It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t had a celebrity crush in their lifetime. Hell, even our great-great-grandparents likely had hearts in their eyes listening to the radio or whatever it is people did before televisions were in almost every home in America. For that reason, and because Shalenna of ‘Everything 90s’ podcast came through with her celebrity crush this week, we’re going to be taking a look at the famous faces people have loved since way back when in the 1930s through today.

1930s: Clark Gable

‘Gone with the Wind’ was one of the first hit movies and because there wasn’t that much going on, it’s not surprising that its stars, Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, were instant celebrity crushes people knew and admired. 

1940s: Elizabeth Taylor 

She rose to fame as a teen during the ‘40s and then went on to be an icon of poise and glam throughout the rest of her career. 

1950s: James Dean & Marilyn Monroe

It was hard to choose between these two because in the grand scheme of things they weren’t just celebrity crushes then, but are still regarded as icons of beauty and youth today. 

1960s: The Beatles

You know, sometimes all it takes is a guy being a musician for people to squeal…

1970s: Cher

Personally, this is the decade I feel like we went from handsome and beautiful to downright fucking sexy, and Cher will forever represent this era best. 

1980s: Madonna

She was and forever is the Material Girl and in the ‘80s (and since) she’s had people eating out of the palm of her hands. 

1990s: Julia Roberts

It’s hard to deny this pretty woman wasn’t a favorite in the ’90s.

2000s: Kim Kardashian 

Once her mom got to work, there was no stopping her from being the most talked about, and oddly enough…admired celebrity of the ‘00s. 

2010s: Ryan Reynolds & Rihanna 

By the 2010s Rihanna was more known for being a fashion and beauty icon than a musician…right? Ryan Reynolds on the other hand became every guy’s man-crush.

2020s: Lizzo 

Who isn’t wildly obsessed with Lizzo at the moment?
