Ranking of '90s Heartthrobs

Who Is the Prince of '90s Heartthrobs? Rank Them So We Can Crown Him

I'll never forget the moment I saw Jonathan Taylor Thomas waltz onto the screen in Wild America, still one of my favorite movies to this day. My 8-year-old self was smitten. And then I saw Mrs. Doubtfire. Although it technically debuted before Wild America, I'd never encountered Matthew Lawrence and I was weak at the knees once more. The '90s were a golden age of teen heartthrobs; our heartthrobs were movie and TV stars — the closest I ever got to interacting with Matthew Lawrence was doodling his name in my diary, not following his every move on Instagram as teens these days are capable of. Their inaccessibility in the '90s made them almost seem like demigods.

Of course, my crushes were different than yours. So I've compiled a list of the most unforgettable '90s heartthrobs for you to rank — and maybe we'll finally find out who the crown prince of the '90s truly is. Even though they're no longer teen heartthrobs, we're guessing you won't be shocked to learn that these hunks have aged quite well.
