My Hollywood Crushes - A new series
I'm sure everyone has their movie/tv star crushes. Those stars who you just fell in love while watching them on screen that captured your fancy. Usually started when you were a teen or even younger and just was infatuated with. Now everyone knows I love Carole Lombard. She is my favorite actress of all time and would be easy to start this new series with her. But I wanted to go with some other actresses of mine that I grew up watching who I had the biggest crushes on. And these won't be just classic movie actresses but modern ones as well. For a little insight, my wife has some crushes of her own. More of the modern variety though, including such actors like Johnny Depp, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Chris Evans. But for me, I will start with this particular actress. I just bought American Graffiti the other day and watched it and she came back into my life. And I'm not talking about Suzanne Somers as the mysterious blonde in the t-bird. No, I'm talking about Cindy Williams. I first fell in love with her as Shirley Feeney on the tv series Laverne & Shirley. I really can't put a finger on why except that she was funny, cute and seemed like a regular girl. And then later on I would see her as high school student Laurie in American Graffiti. And that was all she wrote. So one of my first Hollywood crushes was Cindy Williams.
I will try to do one post a week about a crush of mine time permitting. And from these I guess everyone will have a idea of the actresses that I was crazy in love about.
