Everybody has their one teen heartthrob from the ’80s or ’90s. But where are they now? Here’s what happened to all the favorites.

It’s part of the universal experience of adolescence: the celebrity crush. We saw them on our TVs, we went to the movies to get our fix, or maybe they were singing our favorite songs on the radio. They were the loves of your our generation, and our devotion knew no bounds for those ’80s and ’90s heartthrobs.

Everybody remembers their first celebrity crush, and the feelings you had were probably the closest thing you’d ever come to love in your short little life. I’ve compiled a list of some of our very favorite ’80s and ’90s heartthrobs that are sure to get you all in your nostalgic feelings. However, because digging deeper into anything will certainly ruin it, I’ve also done a little research about what they’re doing now

Some of our faves have continued in their chosen industry, while others have chosen far different careers, and I’ll admit, it’s kind of a bummer. The real tragedy, however, is the young stars we lost too soon, and there are a few of those on here too.
