Here's a series designed to get you guys to interact with the site a bit more, get you to comment on a more regular basis.
Each week I'll tell you a little about my first [something movie related], and then ask you to chime in and share stories of your own firsts in the same category. Simple, eh? Anyway, here's a fun topic to get things started.
MY FIRST MOVIE STAR CRUSH
Come on, we've all had them, and usualy they were the catalyst for us noticing the opposite sex (or our own sex, we don't discriminate at 24FPS) to begin with. One minute it's "Girls, yuck" and then it becomes "Girls, awesome". For me, the catalyst was an American actress 10 years my senior, whose career was really taking off at just about the same time my hormones were doing the same. I'm not sure if I'd even seen her in a movie (perhaps Beetlejuice, but she's not really at her finest in that), I think I just saw her picture in a magazine, and then started hunting down her films. Ladies and Gentlemen... Winona Ryder.
Here are a few pictures from the early 90's, to demonstrate why I was such a fan.
Even at 11 or 12, I had pretty damn good taste.
I was also a fan of Winona Ryder's acting (still am, point of fact) and I'd love to see her make a proper comeback, she's got the acting chops still, and the looks, but she's not really had the material of late. Even Heathers writer Dan Waters' directorial debut; Sex and Death 101 was something of a damp squib. Anyway, since I'm enjoying this post, and since I've still got a crush on her, here's a few of Noni now (or recently anyway).
So, how about you? Who was your first movie star crush? How did it come about? Are you still into them, be it as an actor or that you've still got a thing for them? Give us a picture link too if you like.
All pictures were found at www.winona-ryder.org, so many thanks to them.
