"I've always loved making people laugh. I've always loved funny people. I remember with my dad, he was quite funny, when ever I'd see him Id be like, dad be funny be funny. I thought I was a switch he could turn on. I was always egging him on to make me laugh. I was always enchanted by people that could make me laugh. Also by a young age I learned that if I could make my mom, laugh when I was in trouble, I would get in less trouble if she was laughing about it. So that came in handy a lot too."

Yay!  Zooey would have been #1 on my list.  I think a big part of it for me is that she can sing.

"It's not exploitative, but it is about sex. No kids allowed. It's definitely a different thing for me, but I feel like I'm old enough to handle it now. I sort of understand more how to deal with it publicly, and it doesn't shatter me. I don't have to go to school the next day and have people be like, 'Oh I saw you in that movie; you were very dirty'".

Natalie Portman

Mighty fine way to end things. She's got that level of attractiveness that's just right (perfect cute, if you will), seems remarkably nice, and is smarter than most of us put together, by all accounts. Good points all around, as it were.

My list:

1. Joel McHale
2. Natalie Portman

3. Simon Pegg
4. Mary Elizabeth Winstead
5. Johnny Depp

6. Amber Heard
7. Robert Downey, Jr.
8. Keira Knightly
9. Uma Therman
10. Alison Lohman
11. Clive Owen
12. Tim Roth
13. Mike Nelson
14. Kevin Bacon
15. Jake Gyllenhaal
16. Michelle Monaghan
17. Tom Hardy
18. George Clooney
19. Bruce Campbell
20. A freshly reanimated Cary Grant

Not my best run by far, but then, this is a pretty varied list in every way (plus I'm not the best at picking the 'right' kind of crush, apparently). Still feel like I could have squeezed a few more on there (probably a couple that I forgot off this list).

I suspect there were a few on here that weren't on anyone else's list (which, given the number of people mentioned as being on a list, is probably true of virtually everyone's list).

Of the LoCs I've contributed to, this had to be the hardest one to put in order, because the criteria for each 'entrant' on my list were often so different (their personalities and/or their looks and which was most 'crushable' for me)... so it often depends on my mood as to which I find 'biggest' crushed-upon at any given time.  That's not to mention the ones that I crushed on as a kid that I'm no longer interested in.

It was really hard to decide placement for ones that were more from my childhood and ones that were more recent.  I tried to come up with an 'intensity' scale where the ones from my childhood that influenced my adult 'lovemap' [a concept in psychology which is probably available to see via a search of either Google, Wikipedia or Amazon] were treated as if they were partially still active, then compared them to more recent ones.  As much as possible I tried to keep in mind how intense the crush was, but even there, I had to mix that with how long the crush lasted (some being 'short-lived but very intense', for instance).

Of the LoCs I've contributed to, I think this was the one where the largest number of my top picks made the final cut (5 out of 6), yet, if my memory serves, NONE of the rest of my list made it.  :D

1. Brooke Burke [amazing to me she ended up my #1: that's even with me 'marking off' for her having gotten a boobjob]
2. Morena Baccarin
3. Nathan Fillion [If I was into guys, I'd be all over that!  ;D ]
4. Salli Whitfield-Richardson [on 'EUReKA']
5. Elizabeth Montgomery [longest childhood crush]
6. Jessica Alba
7. Ann Margaret [childhood - probably the reason I prefer redheads, actually]
8. Ashley Tisdale [like her personality; reminds me of someone I know well]
9. Barbi Benton [late childhood - large influence on what I thought was sexy]
10. Summer Glau
11. Tamera Mowry
12. Dina Meyer
13. Eliza Dushku
14. Tamlyn Tomita
15. Freema Agyeman
16. Meredith Baxter-Birney [childhood - first TV crush I remember, from 'Bridget Loves Birney']
17. Kristin Kreuk
18. Patricia Richardson [good 'wife' material]
19. Charlize Theron
20. Vanity
21. Barbara Feldon [childhood]
22. Marlo Thomas [childhood - 2nd most memorable childhood TV crush]
23. Kate Jackson [teenhood]
24. Nana Visitor
25. Natalie Wood [esp. childhood, but I still think she was gorgeous]

Could someone post a list of the final 'top 50' (like the first two lines for the entries: the name plus points/top voter)?  It's always interesting to look at the final lineup without going through multiple pages to see it.  Thanks!

And, again, a big thanks to Monty for the superb work on the list, and for belting it out in record time (with bonuses, yet)!

Is that Sunny Leone?  If so: yeah, she was gorgeous til she got water balloons.

15. Freema Agyeman

Yeah, thanks to her one season of Doctor Who, I liked her so much that I actually sat through the first two seasons of Law & Order UK, when I HATE 'Law & Order'/'CSI'-type TV shows!  (If she'd had more air time on them, I probably would have kept watching.)

I've never sat through two minutes of an L&O episode in my life, but when I saw a commercial of Freema starring in the above, did I ever contemplate giving the UK flavour a chance. But then my wits came back and no.

And Morena Baccarin's head is too small.  It looks weird.
