So what's your most embarrassing, guilty secret crush ever? It could be a boy band member you were crushing on as a teenager, and that you now shudder to think about, or some spectacular foray into really bad taste. Spill!

In the interest of fair disclosure I'll admit that when I was twelve I had a very intense 6 month crush on Mickey Rourke - mostly because he was in Rumble Fish. The dirty hair, the mumbling, the so-called Method acting - what was I thinking?

When I was a teenager, I had a crush on Alan Alda after seeing "The Seduction of Joe Tynan". Now you know!

Don't feel bad - Alan Alda is a very nice man - I met him once at a PBS thingie. Lovely man, gracious and kind.

Yeah, he is :) I think it was more my age at the time. I can guarentee I was the only girl in my school crushing on him. They all had Leif Garrett posters!

Definitely embarrassing, though I'm not sure if that counts as a crush. :-)

As a small kid, I always thought that singer Mireille Mathieu was sooo beautiful and asked Mum to give me her hair-cut. It made me look like a puppy looking out from under an empty bucket...

Oh lordy I had so many guilty crushes I cant remember but a few.

I think Alan Alda was definitely one of them as well. Had to have been him, cause I had one or two M*A*S*H posters up in my room.

Colin Hay from Men At Work. I loved his voice, was a real charmer in interviews, and just seemed like he would be a lovely man to sit and talk with.

Dave from Moonlighting

OH - who was the really off-beat guy in the A-Team?! I would NEVER EVER admit to my brother I enjoyed that show, but the whole reason I ever bothered anyway and didnt complain too much when it was on was because of Murphy (that was his name, wasnt it?)

I always ended up crushing over goof-balls. Any man who can make me laugh has a chance of stealing my heart.

Was that the guy who was also on one of the Startrek shows - in an equally offbeat role?

YES! Barkley aka "Broccoli"

Yeah, he was great. One of my favorite episodes features him and Moriarty - the one where Moriarity refuses to give up control of the ship until Captain Picard retrieves a female companion and gives him a ship to explore the universe.

Mickey Rourke! God. I had a crush on him from Barfly. Then I got a crush on Charles Bukowski. *headdesk* I wasn't twelve, either, so I have no excuse.

Then there's the middle guy in this icon *points*. Lemmy, of Motorhead. When I discovered fandom I actually went looking for Motorhead popslash, but all I could find was Megadeth fic with allusions to Motorhead. My fave find was a story that included in the heading "Warning: Lemmy." Hee!

Grins, Lemmy looks like he would fit perfectly into Dargie's White Rabbit....

I was not allowed to watch MR's more...adult ouvre - and by the time I was finally old enough, I had moved on to somebody else.

Yeah, that was the whole idea...Then, about the same time I discovered Lymond and suddenly grew up. The funny thing is, all that plaid led to Lymond and Lymond to Highlander and here I am, thirty years later, still in love with all things Scotland.

I guess I can live with that... VBG...
