People play a big role in
our lives, from Mom and Dad to the celebs on magazine covers. We decided to
take a minute and reflect on our favorite stars who have either helped shape
who we are, given us someone to look up to, or simply been on of our biggest
dream crushes. Sigh.
He can sing, act and dance—a triple threat! We remember this cutie from the HSM days, but we’re super thankful he’s had a successful career
with big roles in movies like The Lucky
One and Hairspray.
Even though she plays a mean
girl on the new show Nashville,
Hayden is anything but. Not only is she gorgeous and talented, she’s really
involved. Hayden is a huge supporter of the Save The Whales campaign and serves
as inspiration for us all.
They’re more cute than
anything, but we had to include these five singers on the list! While we’re at
it, we’ll thank them for expanding our horizons culturally when it comes to
entertainment. British pop music? Yes, please.
Two-time cover girl Demi was
an absolute no-brainer for this list. We love jamming to her music, but more
importantly we really admire her for sharing her painful story of bullying and
self-harm. Because of Demi, so many teens have sought help for their problems,
and we’re so thankful.
Without R Patz, we wouldn’t
have such a charming male lead in Twilight,
and that would be totally tragic. He’s also donated a lot to the American
Foundation for AIDS Research. How sweet!
Whether we’re going through
a breakup or we’re hopeful for a new crush, this GL cover girl has both our
back and a beautifully-crafted tune to carry us through. It’s safe to say Tay
is the soundtrack to our (love) life, and we couldn’t be more thankful.
His role in The Last Song made us hopeful for a guy
as amazing his character Will, but we’re also thankful for Liam being such a
great man for Miley Cyrus…but we’ll stop there, we don’t want to spoil the rest
of the list!
This girl showed us that you
don’t have to be super outgoing and a mega people-person to be happy and
successful. K-Stew works the awkward girl angle, and it really is inspiring for
those of us who are not the biggest social butterflies.
OK, we have to admit, we
couldn’t bear to not represent the whole Twilight
cast. We’re thankful that Taylor’s character Jacob taught us guys and girls CAN
be friends…even if there’s a bit of love-interest confusion.
Of course we included Liam Hemsworth’s
better half! Miles always taught us to not fear being ourselves. She rocks
funky clothes and her cool new hairstyle, and she hooked an amazing guy for a
fiancé. This GL cover girl is one we’re definitely thankful for.
This 18-year-old cutie
proves that haters can’t bring you down. Even with his huge fan base, GL cover
boy Justin has faced plenty of scrutiny and hate, yet he will forever provide
us with catchy dance tunes. And for that, we thank him!
The female face of the Harry Potter series has proved that it’s
cool to be smart. Not only does she play bookworm Hermione (and kicks butt as
the character), but she’s also furthering her education by taking college
classes. Talk about major juggling!
Which celebrity are you most
thankful for and why? Blog about it, babes.
