The women of GenFab, a collective of post 50 bloggers, focused on celebrity crushes for their February blog hop. Some went vintage and discussed their very first celebrity crushes in all their bellbottomed and floppy haired glory. Others swooned over contemporary men and women who possess impressive characters (and ok, in some cases, really, really good looks).
Take a look at who some of the members named as their top dreamboats in the slideshow below, and let us know which celebrity -- past or present -- you have a crush on.
"<a href="http://conniemcleod.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/the-list/">Numero Uno on my list is Brad Pitt.</a> But not just any Brad. I want '<a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110322/">Legends of the Fall</a>' Brad. That beautiful tortured bad boy who loved so intensely that he went crazy…<em>in a beautiful way</em>." -- Connie McLeod
"Do you know how many times I have wished that she was my mother? She is my own mother’s age and I don’t believe she had any children, but <a href="http://www.midlifecrisisqueen.com/2013/02/07/celebrity-crush/">can you imagine having a mother like that?</a>" -- Laura Lee Carter
"When I was a teen in the 1970s, I didn't have the conventional celebrity crushes. ... I was more interested in Frank Sinatra and Nate Cole than singers who fronted the rock bands of my youth. ... But decades later, I transmogrified from a rational college instructor/mother of two into a fanatic. <a href="http://thegenerationaboveme.blogspot.com/2013/02/confessions-of-claymate.html"> In 2003, I developed a crush on 'American Idol' contestant Clay Aiken</a>. Yes, I was a Claymate, a member of the Clay Nation and the keeper of Clay's Jazz Hands, as I claimed them on a fan board." -- Karen Austin
"It wasn’t really true love. It was simply an unrequited crush. My First Crush. A crush shared by many of the 73 million people who watched the Ed Sullivan show that night. <a href="http://mymidlifeproject.com/life-in-general/all-my-loving/">A crush on the 'cute Beatle' -- Paul McCartney</a>." -- Brenda Hook
"Why should I limit my celebrity crush to one person? <a href="http://firstclasswoman.com/blog/?p=209">Chad, Ryan, Mike and Daniel all need my attention and love.</a> I wouldn’t kick <em>any</em> of these guys to the curb. Actually, I’d prefer that they all just worship me and compete for as much of my attention as they could get." -- Virginia Sullivan
"I might not be as young as the lovely creatures 007 is used to frolicking with, but I think our newest Bond –- the ruggedly handsome Daniel Craig –- is ready for a mature woman like me. We have a lot in common, you know. We’re both in our 40s, we both like martinis, we both use eye-cream. Of course, I’d have one of those naughty Bond Girl names. <a href="http://www.carpoolgoddess.com/why-a-mom-like-me-would-make-a-great-bond-girl/">Experiencia. Multa Experiencia.</a>" -- Linda Wolff
Tony Leung Chiu Wai
"There’s Tony Leung Chiu Wai in anything. Seriously, every movie I’ve ever seen him in –- 'In The Mood For Love,' '2046,' 'Lust Caution' -– has left me with my tongue dragging on the floor. <a href="http://thefurfiles.com/2013/02/11/my-celebrity-crush-its-like-a-freakin-candy-store-out-there/">Christian Grey who?</a>" -- Amanda Fox
"While my sister and her friends were crushing on the guys from television shows like 'Here Come The Brides,' <a href="http://www.damenationblog.com/2013/02/alan-alda-was-my-high-school-crush/">I crushed on Alan Alada from the 'M*A*S*H' television series.</a> Even though the poster on my wall featured the bright blues eyes of Bobby Sherman, my heart wanted the gray eyes and significant beak of Hawkeye," wrote blogger Donna Highfill of her crush on Alan Alda. Cathy Chester also explained her love for the actor on her blog, <a href="http://anempoweredspirit.com/">An Empowered Spirit</a>.
"I was a little lightheaded, my heart was racing, butterflies in the pit of my stomach, sweaty palms, sort of all over flushed –- a feeling somewhere between an orgasm and full on panic <a href="http://lalaslalaland.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/come-into-my-world-and-leave-your-world-behind">as I watched Bobby Sherman sing 'Hey Little Woman' for first time on TV</a>," said Linda Anderson of her crush on Bobby Sherman. Caryn Payzant also explained her love for Bobby Sherman on her blog, <a href="http://www.themidlifeguru.com/2013/02/pre-teen-celebrity-crush-to-grown-up.html">The Midlife Guru</a>.
"I was what people today call a 'high spirited child,' and used to call rambunctious, stubborn, hot-tempered, wild, unmanageable, and a host of other vaguely unflattering but very accurate words. <a href="http://fadedginger.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/the-crush-i-never-outgrew/">According to my mom, the only time I wasn’t in motion was when I was watching 'Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood</a>'..." -- Ginger Kay
Audrey Hepburn And Albert Finney
"I fell hopelessly in love with 'Two for the Road,' an utterly charming movie from the '60s that remains my very favorite to this day, and is the source of my mad crush on <a href="http://www.booksiswonderful.com/2013/02/11/forever-and-ever-in-love-with-audrey/">Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney, who play married couple Joanna and Mark Wallace</a>." -- Helene Bludman
"My friend Mary Rodgers and I would watch 'The Monkees' TV show each week. The next day at school we would create a new 'Think,' which were rambling stories we would make up about our lives <a href="http://stylesubstancesoul.com/2012/03/daydream-believer-by-susan/">as the girlfriends of Davy Jones </a>(me) and Mickey Dolenz (Mary)." --Susan Jensen
"I loved how <a href="http://betterafter50.com/2013/02/why-i-heart-ina/">her recipes made me look good</a> -- how I could make a chocolate brownie pie or an arugula salad with roasted squash and toasted walnuts look just like it did in her cookbooks. I loved the oohs and ahs from family and friends when I made one of her recipes, like I had something to do with creating it." -- Ronna Benjamin
"Ever since Alex Rodriguez had joined the Yankees I have been a big fan. Much to my real-life husband’s chagrin, <a href="http://homeplaceblogger.blogspot.com/2013/02/my-not-so-secret-crush-on-alex-rodriguez.html">I refer to Alex as my 'make-believe husband.'"</a> -- Bonnie Dingus
"<a href="http://relocationtheblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/live-with-kelly-and-me.html">In all honesty, I do admire her.</a> I think she’s adorable and a very savvy businesswoman. The little girl from a working class family in New Jersey has earned her stripes." -- Minda Trotta
"You give women the courage they need to not feel threatened by old school codgers who bully and blame without seeing the big picture. You are so real. I saw you speak at a fundraiser on Martha’s Vineyard when you were running for president and <a href="http://betterafter50.com/2013/02/a-thank-you-note-to-hillary/">it was the first time I felt like I was hearing 'one of us.'"</a> -- Felice Shapiro
"What Janie remembers about the concert is screaming. She clearly sees herself standing in a mass of other young girls and screaming. She doesn’t know if <a href="http://midlifebloggers.com/2013/02/11/my-date-with-fabian/">she screamed at the sight of Fabian</a> or at the sound of his voice, but she opened her mouth wide and screamed. It was a primal response." -- Jane Gassner
"There he was, <a href="http://www.organizedisland.com/2013/02/11/my-teen-idol/">Tony DeFranco of the DeFranco Family</a>. He always sung with his two sisters and two brothers. With the help of Tiger Beat and 16 magazines, I followed him and his family. I knew his favorite color, past times and even his favorite restaurant." -- Raquel Pineira
"<a href="http://www.emptyhousefullmind.com/my-celebrity-crush-bill-clinton/">Bill Clinton is my dreamboat. My celebrity crush.</a> My hall pass to end all hall passes. <em>He just does it for me.</em>" -- Sharon Greenthal
"I can pinpoint the moment when I developed my first adult crush on a celebrity. The new 'Doctor Who,' Series One, episode 9, the scene where Captain Jack Harkness, in World War II uniform, dances with Rose Tyler in front of the Big Ben clock to Glen Miller. It might have been the uniform, but I think it was the music. Or maybe, it was Scottish-American actor <a href="http://www.joyweesemoll.com/2013/02/10/john-barrowman-my-celebrity-crush-a-genfab-post/">John Barrowman’s cheek bones and chin. And eyes. Isn’t he dreamy?</a>" -- Joy Weese Moll
"I flipped through the actors’ photos and stopped cold when I got to the picture of Ilya -- that is, <a href="http://www.zerotosixtyinoneyear.com/2013/02/celebrity-crush-redux.html">David McCallum -- looking right at me with those soulful blue eyes.</a> They were so blue, so piercing -- I felt like he was looking at <em>me</em> the way I was looking at <em>him</em>." -- Risa Nye
