In response to today’s Daily Post Writing Prompt:
Who did you idolize as a teenager? Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-ga over Duran Duran? In love with Justin Bieber? Did you think Elvis was the livin’ end?
I was a teenager in the mid-late 1990s (I turned 18 in 2000). I was in love with Freddie Prinze Jr. (could you blame me? Who didn’t see She’s All That at that time?!), because he was cute, has a great smile, and was everything anyone could want in a boyfriend. Of course, I knew he was not high school age like I was, and no guy in high school EVER looked like him, but it was a nice fantasy.
I’ve always had a “teen age idol” crush on Jason Bateman, for as long as I can remember. I used to watch The Hogan Family when I was very young, and I just always remember thinking he was so cute. Heck, I saw Teen Wolf Too (yes, the crappy, inferior sequel to the Michael J. Fox movie) when I was five years old because he was in it. As an adult, I am still a fan of him and his work, and have seen most of the movies he’s made in the last six years, as well as Arrested Development. I’ve even seen some of the stuff he did as a teenager that I was too young to have seen/appreciated outside of The Hogan Family.
