    Stars, they're just like us! They have crushes on celebs, too!

    Open Heart's Mena Massoud, who plays the (almost) (not really) (maybe one day) lovable volunteer coordinator Jared, sat down with TWIST Magazine to talk about his role on the show and, oh, so much more.

    He revealed exclusively that he has a crush on the one and only Jennifer Lawrence. When speaking about the Oscar-winning actress, he said, "[My celebrity crush is] Jennifer Lawrence for sure, probably. That's common one, but I love her work and I love the way she carries herself in the media. There's lots of beautiful girls who are celebrities."

    You speak the truth, Mena. We love J-Law just as much as you do.

    So, who's your celeb crush? We wanna know in the comments! And make sure to catch Mena and the rest of the cast of Open Heart on Tuesdays at 9pm!

  • Life With Boys: Strength vs. Smarts

    Life With Boys

    Our new intern, Jonathan, took a look at the "Misguided Motives with Boys" episode of Life With Boys, and he has a question for you. (If you haven't seen that ep yet, watch it here.)

    Jonathan, TeenNick intern
    Jonathan takes a look at Life With Boys
    Here's Jonathan:
    Tess Foster is living her life with boys, but I'm living my life AS a boy -- imagine that! Tess may not have her own bathroom yet, but it seems as if she has definitely learned a few things from the three annoying brothers she has to live with. She's the only girl on the wrestling team and even though the head cheerleader, Kaylee, calls her a "boy-girl freak," I think she should stay on the team. Ladies, take notes: some guys want their girls to be a little rough. Why else do you think the blond guy was checking Tess out right after she viciously mutilated Allie's muffin?!?

    Remember when you were too young to spell and your parents would tell you that if a boy was mean to you, he likes you? It sounds crazy, but they weren't lying. The girls who were the meanest to me in grade school ending up confessing their love for me sometime before my high school graduation -- I kid you not! This is exactly why Tess' genius brother, Sam, should not have fallen for Kaylee's attempt to get him to do her science project. Sam doesn't need to do extra work to impress her. Even if she doesn't realize it yet, deep down inside, she might already have feelings for him.

    Even though Tess and Sam shared a womb, they are definitely two different creatures! Forget their genders for a second. Overall, are you more attracted to people like Tess, who are aggressive and strong? Or would you prefer someone like Sam, who's super smart?

    What matters more to YOU -- strength or smarts? Vote in the comments!

    Don't forget: Two new episodes of Life With Boys premiere Wednesday, starting at 8pm et!

  • Dance Academy: Crush-splosion

    Posted on 03/22/2012 by Lisa

    This week on Dance Academy, there were sooo many crushes, from Tara's girl crush on Kat's mom to Sammy's crush on you-know-who (if you watched).

    Spoilers below -- don't read any further unless you've seen the episodes Perfection and Crush Test Dummies.

    Tara, girl-crushing.Last night, during "Perfection," I was really surprised to find out that Kat's mom was Natasha Willis, a famous ballerina -- and Tara's idol. Doesn't that kind of stuff usually come up in conversation between friends? I agree with Abigail (for once!) about the situation. It must suck for Kat to know that her best friend is crushing madly on her brother and fangirling over her mom. It's like... "What about ME?"

    I loved that Tara dyed her hair green, though. Yay for crazy-colored hair (even if it's just temporary).

    Tonight's episode, "Crush Test Dummies," had lots of crush talk, and I could definitely relate. I loved Sammy's quote "You can't control a crush," especially knowing how hard he probably tried not to have a crush on Abigail. I felt so bad for him when Tara and Kat joked about it, without realizing it was true. I'm dreading the moment Abigail finds out... I can't imagine that she's going to take it well.

    I liked the Christian / Ethan storyline, too, because I feel like we got a better sense of where they're both coming from. Ethan seems to care a lot about his dad's opinion. Christian was willing to blow off the dance performance, but he wasn't willing to let Ethan get hurt.

    Hey, you know how Tara says she has that fantasy about seeing her crush just after he's been in a fight for her, and he's a little bit injured? Is that something other people feel? I'm pretty much the queen of crushes, but I have NO interest in seeing any of my crushes bleeding -- even in my daydreams.

    Crush fight fantasies: Hot or not? Share your thoughts in the comments.

  • THE DEGRASSI CRUSH QUIZ IS ALL NEW

    Posted on 10/11/2010 by Lisa

    I did lots of important cute boy research in order to bring you an updated version of the Degrassi crush quiz. Have you taken it yet?

    My current Degrassi crush is:


    Wesley? Well, he's cute, smart, he's into robots, he's a musician... Oh, and remember the rap he and Connor did in the caf when they were trying to get Dave elected? I love any guy who's willing to act that dorky in public. Maybe I DO sort of have a crush on Wesley. I learned something new about myself today.

    So... who's your Degrassi crush?

  • Are you boy-lingual?

    Posted on 06/04/2010 by Lisa

    Georgia and friends.That's my favorite quote from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.

    It's from the scene where Georgia and her friends are analyzing what it means when a cute guy says "See you later." Does it mean something special if he says it slowly?

    I am totally the kind of person who could spend ages obsessing about the meaning of a quick comment from a cute guy. Does a slow "See you later" mean "I WANT to see you later!" or just... "See you around" ?

    If somebody you like said "See you later" to you, kinda slowly, would you be excited? Neutral? Disappointed? I think I'd be psyched... I'm not exactly boy-lingual, but I've got a great imagination. : )

  • Ever hit "send" and then freak out?

    Posted on 05/31/2010 by Lisa

    Dooooon't hit 'Send'!!!Zoey 101: Spring Break-Up is supposed to be a fun little TV movie, but in my opinion, it's also a horrifying cautionary tale about the dangers of texting. Seriously.

    I won't be too spoilery, in case you haven't seen it yet, but if you've ever watched Zoey 101, you know Chase is in love with Zoey. Everybody knows it -- except Zoey. In Spring Break-Up, Chase mentions his Zoey-love (and how he's not ready to tell her) in a text to a friend. BUT HOLY OMG NO... he accidentally sent that text to Zoey.

    The thought of doing something like that absolutely terrifies me, so at that point in the movie I'm usually curled up in a ball, crying on the floor in front of my TV, because I feel so bad for Chase. (That might be a teensy bit of an exaggeration, but just barely.)

    I've sent a few stupid emails in my life, but so far, I've never sent a painful, embarrassing text.

    Have you? How'd you cope?

  • K.C. and Declan - Are they Aislinn Paul (Clare)'s type, too?

    Posted on 05/06/2010 by Mary

    One time, I cornered Aislinn Paul (Clare from Degrassi) and made her talk about boys. She was very accommodating to my nosiness, because she is SUPER nice. And pretty much exactly as smart and realistic as you'd think she is.

    Aislinn Paul, Clare from Degrassi Do you have a type? I always get to the point where I think I know my type, but then I like someone completely different and I don't know why. I think they just have to be someone who's willing to have conversations about the world... and just, think about stuff, as opposed to being rash and acting before thinking.

    Have you ever had a crush on someone who had like, never cracked open a book? Yup! So, I think I know what my type is, but then I just trick myself and like someone completely different.

    Do you and your friends have any rules about whether you can date ex-boyfriends, current crushes, anything like that? Well, the problem at my school -- I go to an arts school. So there's about one boy for every... twenty girls? So we don't even really worry about it. We just say, "Everyone, go for whoever."

    How 'bout you guys... do you have a type?
