Celebrity Crushes of the 1990’s


We all had them. We watched their shows, movies, and sports games, and listened to their music, if not because of genuine interest, then just to see them in action. Here are my top 10 celebrity crushes of the 1990’s.

10. Amanda Bynes

Television: All That, Figure It Out, The Amanda Show

Movies: Big Fat Liar, What a Girl Wants, She’s the Man

Bynes began her acting career as a cute, little girl on All That. Then, she moved onto the Amanda Show (1999-2002). In 2002, she made her film debut in Big Fat Liar (alongside Frankie Muniz Jr). She apparently is retiring from acting to focus on launching her career as a fashion designer. Anything other than DUI’s I guess right?

9. Alicia Silverstone

Movies: The Crush, Clueless, Batman and Robin

Silverstone did a great job as a sweet yet crazy villain in “The Crush”.

8. Danielle Fishel (Topanga Lawrence)

Television: Boy Meets World

Who wouldn’t want Topanga as a girlfriend?

7. Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger)

Television: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)

As a kid, watching and playing “Power Rangers” I was usually the blue ranger… and always had a crush on the pink ranger.

6. Elizabeth Hurley

Movies: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

The moment we found out that Vanessa Kensington was actually a robot was a very sad moment.

5. Cameron Diaz

Movies: The Mask, There’s Something About Mary

Diaz was smoking hot in The Mask and also showed her comedic side in the amazing film, “There’s Something about Mary”.

4. Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice)

Movies: Spice World

I am somewhat embarrassed with this pick. My sister and cousins’ obsession with the Spice Girls in the 90’s annoyed me, but for some reason I had a small crush on Posh Spice. Now, she’s just wayyy too skinny and gross.

3. Carmen Electra

Movies: Good Burger

There was a popular debate during the 1990’s: Carmen Electra or Pamela Anderson. I was a Carmen fan.

2. Anna Kournikova

Sport: Tennis

Who cares that she sucked at tennis?

AND NUMBER ONE ISSSSS….

1. Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo)

Movies: Jack, Selena, Anaconda

Only three movies listed because those were some of her bigger one’s from the 90’s. The 2000’s was J-Lo’s decade. Lopez is one of the few on this list who is still just as beautiful as ever.

Best Actor/Actress of the 1990’s


Welcome back to the top ten countdown of the best actors/actresses of the 1990’s. Let’s do a quick recap of picks ten through four.

10. Tim Allen (The Santa Clause, Toy Story, Toy Story 2)

9. Kathy Bates (Misery, Titanic, The Waterboy)

8. Joe Pesci (Goodfellas, Home Alone, JFK, Home Alone 2)

7. Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura, The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, Liar Liar, The Truman Show)

6. Mike Myers (Wayne’s World, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Austin Powers)

5. Adam Sandler (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy)

4. Leonardo DiCaprio (Romeo and Juliet, Titanic, The Man in the Iron Mask)

Now… numbers three, two and one:

3. Jodie Foster

Notable movies from 90’s: The Silence of the Lambs, Contact

Well, although I only mentioned two movies from Foster’s 1990’s, she was in others, just ones that I have not heard of. Don’t be turned off though by only two movies showing up. The Silence of the Lambs has the value of like ten movies combined. Foster was not only a great actress during the 90’s, but her career began successfully all the way back in the 1970’s. Her breakout hit was probably Taxi Driver. She also was in the original “Freaky Friday” in 1976. Essentially, Foster’s success has spanned nearly 40 years, because she is still starring in solid movies today. I loved her in “Panic Room” (2002) and “Flightplan” (2005) was pretty good.

2. Robin Williams

Notable movies from 90’s: Hook, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Jack, Good Will Hunting, Patch Adams, Bicentennial Man

The 1990’s were simply stacked with good Robin Williams movies. I think that Williams is definitely one of the funnier men alive. It seems like he had a good movie pretty much every year in the 90’s. It started off with “Hook”, basically an interesting version of Peter Pan. Then he of course provided the voice of the Genie in Aladdin. Next was maybe my favorite performance of his from the decade, Mrs. Doubtfire. Jumanji I thought was an awesome movie as a kid, and it also had Bonnie Hunt and a young Kirsten Dunst in it. “Jack” was a funny, and touching movie, that also had Sally Field and Jennifer Lopez in it. Next, Good Will Hunting was probably his most successful and well-known film from the 90’s. Patch Adams is next, and that definitely was a brilliant acting job by Williams, and had me tearing up at the end. Last, but definitely not least, “Bicentennial Man” was an amazing movie. Williams spent half of the movie has a robot, but he was still funny, entertaining, and there were a few tear inducing moments in that film as well.

and now I’m sure you can guess it  by process of elimination… the number one actor/actress of the 1990’s is…

1. Tom Hanks

Notable movie from 90’s: A League of Their Own, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Toy Story, Toy Story 2

The movies that I mentioned above are simply my favorites from Hanks during the 90’s. I did not even mention: Sleepless in Seattle, Philadelphia, Saving Private Ryan, You’ve Got Mail, or The Green Mile. Clearly, Hanks was the best actor of the 90’s. Other movies which he starred in: Splash (1984), Big (1988), Cast Away (2000), Road to Perdition (2002), The Polar Express (2004), The Da Vinci Code (2006), Toy Story 3 (2010). Probably in each and every one of these films, Hanks had at least a couple of classic lines, and scenes that will ever live in movie lore. A few examples: “There’s no crying in baseball” (A League of Their Own), too many to name (Forrest Gump), “Houston We Have a Problem” (Apollo 13), so many from all three Toy Stories, and finally “Wilsonnnnnnn” (Cast Away).

Congratulations to Tom Hanks, the number one actor/actress of the 1990’s! Stay tuned soon for more posts!

Adam Sandler, Tom Hanks, Jodie Foster, and other great actors/actresses from 1990’s


It is time for a countdown of some great actors and actresses, and some of my favorites from the 1990’s. We have some on the list who were good in mostly dramatic roles, and others who usually provided knee-slapping moments in great comedies. There are also some who were a dual threat, acting in both dramas and comedies. Now that is truly a testament of a tremendous actor. Well, no use in prolonging this little introduction. Here we go!

10. Tim Allen

Notable movies from 90’s: The Santa Clause, Toy Story, Toy Story 2

Allen may have been mostly known in the 90’s for his role on the television show “Home Improvement”, but he was also a decent movie actor. The Santa Clause was a movie franchise that just got worse and worse with each movie. The Toy Story trilogy, you could argue, has worked in the exact opposite way.

9. Kathy Bates

Notable movies from 90’s: Misery, Titanic, The Waterboy

While not the most attractive lady in the world, Bates still gave an amazing performance in Stephen King’s “Misery”. She was definitely one of the best movie villains of the 1990’s, and a fairly unsuspected one at that. Her roles in Titanic and The Waterboy were much less prominent, but she showed great versatility in these three movies. She was a villain in Misery. A fairly minor character, but dramatic nonetheless in Titanic, and very funny in the Adam Sandler comedy, The Waterboy.

8. Joe Pesci

Notable movies from 90’s: Goodfellas, Home Alone, JFK, Home Alone 2

Pesci seems to always play a similar role in all of his movies. He is typically some sort of mobster, or criminal, and he plays those characters extremely well. Whether it be as a more serious character like in Goodfellas and JFK, or a funnier one like in both Home Alones, Pesci always plays his character very well.

7. Jim Carrey

Notable movies from 90’s: Ace Ventura, The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, Liar Liar, The Truman Show

Carrey’s movie career has kind of been struggling in the 2000’s and 2010’s. I’d say that the only solid movie he was in during the 2000’s was Bruce Almighty, and maybe How the Grinch Stole Christmas. However, he was in a lot of very good movies during the 90’s. Sometimes he is a little bit too much to handle, and might over do it, but for the most part, I feel he is deserving of the number seven spot. By the way, how hot is Cameron Diaz in this movie? She narrowly missed making this list.

6. Mike Myers

Notable movies from 90’s: Wayne’s World, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Austin Powers

Another guy who has not had the greatest movies recently but was solid during the 90’s. With the most recent Shrek movies, and flicks like The Love Guru, and The Cat in the Hat, Myers is definitely not at his best right now. However, I have heard news that there might be an Austin Powers 4! Usually when a movie franchise gets this far, they start losing steam, but I think that Austin Powers 3 was arguably the best one. We shall see.

What’s this? Where are numbers one through five? Well, using the suggestion of the very intelligent Kyle Belanger, I have decided to reveal the remaining five people in future posts. Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait long, but I feel that it will create more drama if with the top five, I write longer, more detailed posts on the actors/actresses. Have suggestions on who should make the top five? We’ll see if you can name any of my top five. Next post will be either tomorrow or Friday!
