9 From The ’90s: Then & Now Photos Of Your Favorite Childhood Crushes!
Let’s take a trip back to the 1990s. If you are currently in your 20s/early 30s, you are probably going to enjoy this trip. Life was better back then. You didn’t have a job, no bills to pay, eating cookies every freaking night, having sleepovers, and crushing hard on the characters from your favorite show/movie.
Back then, you put up photos on your actual wall inside your bedroom. Now you put them on some virtual wall, and everyone (including your old 2nd grade teacher) can see them. It’s a dangerous game we’re playing. We share too much, you know?
That being said, you should totally share this post with all your friends, family, co-workers, and former teachers on Facebook. They can all relate to this, and there is a photo of a cat inside this post! You have to share it now. Those are the rules of the internet.
Which one of the celebs below did you have a crush on?
No. 9 – Melissa Joan Hart
Current Age: 39-years-old
Best Known As: Sabrina Spellman in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch
Where Is She Now? Melissa’s heart (hart?) is still in acting. She has starred in the ABC Family series Melissa & Joey since 2010. Sadly, the show did get canceled earlier this year. The series finale will air on August 5, 2015. She’s currently filming God’s Not Dead 2, which is the sequel to the 2014 religious drama, God’s Not Dead. Why the title isn’t “God’s Still Not Dead” is beyond me. Or maybe “God Might Be Dead” just to add more suspense. Or possibly even “God’s Not Dead, But He’s In A Coma…And Will Only Survive If This Movie Hits Number One At The Box Office”.
No. 8 – Rider Strong
Current Age: 35-years-old
Best Known As: Shawn Hunter in Boy Meets World
Where Is He Now? Mr. Strong’s career in Hollywood is still strong. Not as strong as it was in the ’90s, but his career could still beat your Grandfather in an arm wrestling match. He’s appeared in several episodes of Girl Meets World, and landed a role in the 2015 drama Too Late. You can check out the trailer by clicking this link.
No. 7 – Danica McKellar
Current Age: 40-years-old
Best Know As: Winnie Cooper in The Wonder Years
Where Is She Now? She is still around doing her thing. If you watch Dancing With the Stars, you probably remember seeing her on the show last year. And if you’re a fan of the Cartoon Network, you probably remember hearing her voice on the TV series Young Justice. She’s also been busy being incredibly smart.

No. 6 – Jonathan Taylor Thomas
Current Age: 33-years-old
Best Known As: Randy Taylor in Home Improvement
Where Is He Now? As most of you know, Thomas walked away from the fame right when his career was really starting to turn into something special. He was tired of acting, “I’d been going nonstop since I was 8 years old. I wanted to go to school, to travel and have a bit of a break.” he told People Magazine. He doesn’t regret his decision either. He’s now back in Los Angeles, but he’s more focused on writing and directing, although, he has made a few appearances on Tim Allen’s show on ABC, Last Man Standing. It also looks like he directed two episodes. Tim Allen still helping out his son. Makes me wanna cry.
No. 5 – Alicia Silverstone
Current Age: 38-years-old
Best Known As: Cherilyn “Cher” Horowitz in Clueless
Where Is She Now? Silverstone is no longer landing those multi-picture deals; however, she is still making a living doing what she loves. She’s still appearing in movies and on television. She’s also been knocking down some pretty big theatre roles. Starring in plays such as Time Stands Still, The Performers, and the stage adaption of The Graduate. Oh, and according to her Wiki page, she wrote a letter to Vladimir Putin asking that vegan meal options be made available to all Russian prisoners. I wonder if he’s a Clueless fan?
No. 4 – Tiffani Thiessen
Current Age: 41-years-old
Best Known As: Kelly Ka-POW-ski in Saved by the Bell
Where Is She Now? You fans of the USA Network television series White Collar know exactly where she has been. She played Elizabeth Burke on the show and appeared in over 80 episodes. The series ended last year, but you can now catch her on the Cooking Channel hosting her own show, Dinner at Tiffani’s. She also has a beautiful family. You can check them out on her Instagram account.
No. 3 – Darius McCrary
Current Age: 39-years-old
Best Known As: Edward “Eddie” Winslow in Family Matters
Where Is He Now? Just like almost everyone on this list, McCrary is still doing his thing in Hollywood. He played photographer Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless. He was also in a horror flick called The Summoning in 2015. Back in March of 2015, he was arrested in Oakland County for failing to pay child support.
No. 2 – Sara Gilbert
Current Age: 40-years-old
Best Known As: Darlene Conner in Roseanne
Where Is She Now? Come on. You all know where she is at. She is the creator/co-host/executive producer of The Talk, which has been nominated for several Daytime Emmy Awards. She also appeared on The Big Bang Theory with her Roseanne co-star Johnny Galecki, and the short-lived CBS comedy series Bad Teacher. And please don’t leave any comments questioning my huge crush on her. Her character on Roseanne was brilliant. How could you not love her?
No. 1 – Danielle Fishel
Current Age: 34-years-old
Best Known As: Topanga in Boy Meets World
Where Is She Now? The same freaking place! She’s still in the Boy Meets World universe. Playing the lovely wife of Cory Matthews in Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World. The second season of the show started back in May of 2015, and it’s been neat seeing the crew back together. Even William Daniels returned as Mr. Feeny! I have to imagine Eric Matthews was happy about that…
