Today I would like to dedicate my post to the unbelievably hot guys of my youth.
I spent the better part of my teen years being hopelessly in love with Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles.
Every boy in high school was was judged against his hotness. I know this isn't fair but that's what you do when your a teenager with unrealistic hopes and dreams and the most uncontrollable imagination.
If I am being honest which I sometimes like to do....I still fantasize about Jake Ryan. Whenever I imagine a new male character he always somehow ends up...in my mind....looking like Jake Ryan.
Jake Ryan isn't his actual name...in case you didn't know his real name is Michael Schoeffling.
He has not been in a movie since 1991. I loved him in all of his movies but the Jake Ryan character is by far my favorite. So after doing a little stalking it appears that Michael Schoeffling now is a furniture maker living somewhere in Pennsylvania....and no just because I know this now and because I too live in Pennsylvania I am not going search every phone book to located his furniture store....geez....plus I don't think he has a store you have to special order the furniture...and no I am not going to special order a piece of furniture....but how cool would it be to say "Oh this table well Jake Ryan made it especially for me"...Well now I know what I want for my birthday.
And I want this shirt
Okay so on to some of the others....
.but I want to make sure you understand that although the rest are pretty hot
Jake Ryan is king!
Rob Lowe - The Outsiders
Although Rob Lowe is pretty enough to be a girl he was really hot in this movie because he was supposed to be tough.
Patrick is hot in just about every movie he was in but I love him the most in Dirty Dancing and Ghost!
Josh Brolin - The Goonies
One of my all time favorite movies and Josh was just so hot in his little workout clothes and headband.
Kevin Bacon - Footloose
Honestly I don't think Kevin Bacon is all that hot. I think I am more attracted to him because his last name is bacon and I LOVE Bacon! But he was kind of hot in this movie.
John Laughlin however was in my opinion the hottest guy in the movie Footloose!
Although not the hottest guy his sweet characters set my little teenage heart a flutter. John continues to be one of my favorite actors. He is one of those actors whose films I will put my hard earned money out to see no matter what. Additionally he was in another of my all time favorite movies Better off Dead. It is so funny!
So there you have it ladies and gentleman. Tomorrow Stacey and I will be talking about Twilight...and I know he is cute and all by Robert Pattinson is no Jake Ryan....just saying.
How about you blogger buddies any teen loves you would like to share?
