When I was 17 years old, my two major celebrity crushes were Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise. I had a little scrapbook bursting with photos clipped from magazines, and every so often I would just flip through the pages and fantasize about my happily ever after. It looked a little like this:
Yeah, it should come as no surprise that I was not the most popular girl in high school. Anyway, the point is, my love for them was an innocent love. When I looked at those pictures, I wasn’t wondering what it would be like to bang either of those men… my mind simply didn’t go there. But this thing with James Franco trying to hook up with a 17-year-old got me thinking. If the opportunity arose to have sex with Johnny Depp when I was that age, would I go for it? Unlikely. As much as I adored him, I would’ve been creeped out that a man twice my age was showing that kind of interest in me. I know that saying, “different strokes for different folks,” but I’d like to know– am I really in the minority here??

Now I must go. For some reason, this talk of Johnny Depp has made me want to go watch Cry-Baby.
