Believe it or not but many of the people we consider to be celebrities now also had childhood crushes on celebrities. Perhaps even the same celebrities that you had a childhood crush on. They also spent their time watching celebrities on TV and daydreaming about meeting them, but never really expecting it to happen in real life. They also had the walls of their childhood bedroom covered in posters of their childhood celebrity crush or set their face as the screensaver on their phone. It’s just that now they’re all grown up and famous and many of them have crossed paths with their childhood crushes, be it on a red carpet or just at work, or kind of socially, because they’re in the same business. Either way. We thought it would be fun to tell you who were the childhood crushes of famous celebs.
1. Kylie Jenner – Taylor Lautner
When you hear the name Taylor Lautner what’s the first thing that comes to mind? We bet it’s the Twilight franchise. Yeah, that’s what we thought too. Most of the world was split into Edward vs Jacob when it came to childhood crushes. But you’ll be surprised to find out that Kylie Jenner had a childhood crush on Taylor way before he got the part of that hot werewolf. She had a crush on him when she saw him in the movie The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D. That’s pretty surprising, right?
2. Kim Kardashian – Johnny Depp
Kim’s childhood crush is much more common. She was obsessed with Johnny Depp when she was a teen. She didn’t specify what movie specifically made her have a crush on him, but it would be around the time Johnny was getting parts in movies like Crybaby, Edward Scissorhands, and Benny and Joon. Who knew Kim had a soft spot for the sweet and innocent era of Johnny Depp.
3. Ariana Grande – Jim Carrey
Ariana’s childhood crush was Jim Carrey. Is anyone surprised she then dated Pete Davidson later on? She clearly has a thing for comedians, or perhaps it’s just true that the secret to a woman’s heart is making her laugh.
4.Greta Gerwig – Leonardo DiCaprio
When she was 13 years old, Greta Gerwig, the successful actress, and director, the genius behind Little Women and LadyBird, went through a phase where she had a massive crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. Didn’t we all? I mean is there a person on this planet over the age of 30 who didn’t? Greta was so enamored with Leo that she kept a folder of pictures of him that she printed off from the internet. She would look through them and kiss a picture of Leo every night. She was just convinced she would marry him one day.
