The Candy eds share their first celeb crushes (no matter how embarrassing!). What about you? Who were your first celeb crushes?

miac.jpg Aga Muhlach and then, Tom Cruise! I wanted to be Aga's girlfriend so badly! And I had a big poster of Top Gun inside my closet! Mia, Editor in Chief
steph.jpg Brad Renfro.Ü I even collected posters and pin-ups from Bop and Tigerbeat magazine. Haha! So embarrassing!Ü —Steph, Art Director
mimi.jpg I can't remember which one was first, but I fell in love with Christopher Reeve when I saw him flying high on my lolo’s TV screen. I loved the way he wore his Superman outfit with matching curl on the forehead! My other crush was Menudo's Robby Rosa. He was in a boyband with the young Ricky Martin, and I even watched their concert! Years have passed, but I still go loco for hunky men in tights and guys in boybands. Haha! —Mimi, Managing Editor
jennie.jpg Joey Mcintrye of New Kids On The Block. I thought we'd get married. —Jennie, Beauty Editor

margaux.jpg I was in love with Jonathan Jackson from Camp Nowhere. I watched the movie a million times and even asked my parents for a subscription of Bop so I'd have a regular supply of his pics! —Margaux, Fashion Assistant
marla.jpg Brian "B-Rok" Litrell. Haha! While everyone else was going gaga over Nick Carter, I was completely in love with this less popular Backstreet Boy. Ten years later and a phone conversation (check the December ish!) later, I'd still go anywhere for him. Hehe. Marla, Assistant Lifestyle Editor
macy.jpg My first celeb crush was Devon Sawa after seeing him as the friendly ghost in Casper. I even had a VHS tape recording of the TV movie Robin of Locksley, that I copied from a friend who was equally in love with him. I watched it over and over again and secretly hated Sarah Chalke who was his love interest in the movie. Haha! Imagine how much I hated Christina Ricci when she gave him a kiss in Now and Then? :P—Macy, Web and Mobile Producer
roch.jpg Joshua Jackson! When I first saw him in Mighty Ducks, I instantly fell in love with him. For local celebs, it's Patrick Garcia. I remember calling 114 to ask for his home number hahaha! :D —Roch, Web and Mobile Producer
