Anyone who grew up in the 1990s knows of the name Jonathan Taylor Thomas, but so many other '90s heartthrobs who graced the covers of teen magazines, like Teen Beat, Tiger Beat, and BOP, have been forgotten about over the years. Sure, Leonardo DiCaprio survived his '90s heartthrob status and managed to come out the other side with a few Oscar nominations (and a win). But many other dreamboats that '90s kids drooled over haven't had the same type of staying power. Yet, once you see images of some of these lesser-known '90s heartthrobs again, memories of hanging their pictures on your wall will come flooding back.
Who you were crushing on in the '90s greatly depends on what year you were born in. Yet, there should be a familiar face for '90s kids of all ages on this list of heartthrobs that you may not remember. Either way, the hair styles will be giving you flashbacks of going to convenience stores to peruse these fine specimens from your favorite TV shows and movies on the covers of teenybopper magazines. And though you may have been young, your love for these boys and men was true — and no one could have told you otherwise.
So although you may not think of these heartthrobs today, here are 14 guys you definitely wished were your boyfriends at some point in the '90s.
Nowadays he may be engaged to Idina Menzel, but in the '90s he was Mush in Newsies, along with being in Sister, Sister and D2: The Mighty Ducks (with Vitar). Plus, he was Max's singing voice in A Goofy Movie!
Speaking of Harvey from Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Nate Richert was extremely crush-worthy in the '90s.
10Lee Thompson Young
Lee Thompson Young first won hearts on the Disney Channel in The Famous Jett Jackson and Johnny Tsunami (seriously, Jett Jackson can still make me swoon). Sadly, like many other '90s heartthrobs I looked up for this list, he died young as he committed suicide in 2013.
