#1 Catherine Zeta-Jones in The Mask of Zorro.
eed_thelast_haw: Yes. So, so beautiful. She still is! But in these movie she just took your breath away.
#2 Before he was Tom Wambsgans abusing cousin Greg for amusement, he was Mr Darcy. I loved him, most ardently.
eed_thelast_haw: I prefer Colin Firth as Mr Darcy, but that is just my preference. I think he looked more mature and therefore waaaaay more awkward at the balls 😅
#3 Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. She lit up every scene she was in.
El Cucuy: Mystic Pizza for me.
#4 Viggo Mortensen- Aragorn
eed_thelast_haw: I never realized I even have a type until Aragorn on screen. Tall dark and gloomy. Yup. Thanks, Viggo, for frustrting ne3 during my teenage years. It’s why I like Cavill’s Geralt so much. A softie layered up in gloom, doom and waaaaay too much horse poop.

#8 You could have had every cast member of the mummy and I would have said yes.
Lakota Wolf (she/her): I was born in 1982 and was a teenager in the 90s. I had such a huge crush on Brendan Fraser. I loved him in Encino Man, but fell in love with him in Mrs. Winterbourne.
