1980  Richard Gere and American Gigolo




1981  Harrison Ford and Indiana Jones





1982 Sean Penn and Fast Times at Ridgemont High




1983 Matt Dillon and The Outsiders



1984  Kevin Bacon and Footloose





1985
  Paul Walker and Highway to Heaven




1986  Val Kilmer and Top Gun



1987  Johnny Depp and 21 Jump Street




1988  Christian Slater and Heathers







1989  Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Saved by the Bell






Leo just missed the 80's, his episodes of Growing Pains aired in 1990





Yeah, the 80's were full of hunks...


Were any of these heartthrobs your 80's crush?
I think one of the men above is the most gorgeous man on the planet, can you guess which one he is?

  2. Mine was, Ricky Schroder from Silver Spoons.
    From the list above - Leo, Oh Leo! If I were single I would do anything for this guy!
    Love Kevin Bacon and Val Kilmer (the way he used to look:)) as well.

    1. I used to love Silver Spoons! I forgot about that! I think Kevin Bacon is better with age, Val Kilmer not as much, still good looking thought :)

  3. Doesn't Johnny Depp wrinkle? I don't get why he doesn't wrinkle. He is amazing. I totally forgot about Christian Slater, but at the time, he was good-looking crazy (literally) Thanks for the updated picture of Kevin Bacon, too. He's one who got better with age!

  4. Most have aged well, although Kilmer is a bit chubby now.

    1. HAHAHAHA! How did Kevin allow that picture to go public? The after one sure is smokin'!

  8. Gosh, I was busy having babies (and raising them) in '80, '81, '85 & '89, so I didn't get to watch much TV (working mom), but Matt Dillon always stood out to me as super hot. Kevin Bacon looks better in the Now pic. Jenny's comment about the moose knuckle is funny. I wouldn't even know what that meant if my daughter hadn't clued me in! I didn't even know who Paul Walker was until I saw the movie Running Scared (an awesome, suspenseful movie - warning: violence & colorful language!). Tom Cruise was my heart throb for years. I'd have to say that Paul Walker is the best looking out of all these guys. So I'll guess that he's also the guy you think is the best looking guy on the planet!

    1. YAY! You got it right! I cheated a bit to get Paul Walker on here :) I think Running Scared is one of his better movies, but then again, I'd watch anything with him in it :)

  9. Your blog is steaming hot right now Hope :) lol. How did you choose such drool-worthy men. I don't think I can pick who's more babelicious :)

  10. Whoa! So many men, so many crushes!! And really good ones, too! Love Richard Gere. Johnny Depp is my crush. Paul Walker is a dreamboat now. And Leo, I never thought he'd turn into such a hunky guy, but did you catch him in Blood Diamond? He was awesome and super sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Holy Wow! I don't think you could possibly fill this post with any more delicious yumminess! I have to agree with all of your choices too. Apparently we think alike when it comes to men. Love it!

  12. Ahh . . . Harrison Ford. Always yummy. Who could forget the shirtless volleyball scene in Top Gun?! And Paul Walker (as an adult)--he doesn't even have to speak, he just has to be on camera and look hot.

  13. Yummo! I loved this post...it made me...happy. hehehe

  14. LOL... oh gawd, I'm so old. I was born in '72, so I'm hesitant to add to the hunk list.

    But, if you promise not to laugh... I had pictures of Don Johnson from his Miami Vice years on my wall.

    Oh yeah. *hides face*

  15. I'm still pissed that Fast Times at Ridgemont High isn't on Netflix Instant. Phoebe Cates tops my list.

  16. Gosh, this is great...but boy does it make me feel old. Don't tell anyone, but I graduated from high school in 1980. YIKES!
