You old enough to remember the 1980s? You don’t have to admit it…I won’t! There were some heartthrobs in the ’80s, including the Brat Pack and John Stamos, as seen above. Let’s take a look at some of the ’80s Heartthrobs and see where they are at now. Did their looks hold strong?
A member of the Brat Pack, McCarthy made a name for himself along with the rest of the group in the ’80s. While he has continued acting, he also has becoming an award-winning travel writer and he still has his good looks.
We fell in love with him on the TV series 21 Jump Street and his good looks continued through to 2012. Even though he may be a little odd at time, he is still good-looking and one of the best actors in Hollywood.
We fell in love with him as Uncle Jesse on Full House, but this is one guy that has gotten better with age. You can’t deny he looks good and he most recently had a recurring role on Glee.
How could you not include Ferris Bueller? Broderick made everyone love him when he skipped a day of school, but now you can love him on Broadway most of the time. Also, he is married to Sarah Jessica Parker.
Such a sad story. Corey Haim and his friend Corey Feldman were the big hits of the ’80s. They starred in movies like Goonies and Stand by Me, but with all that fame came addiction problems. Corey Haim never moved past being a teen actor, but they did try a reality show out for A&E. He passed away from pneumonia in 2010.
Starring in The Outsiders in 1983, Dillon has gone on and starred in many movies including an Oscar-nominated role in Crash. He has aged very well.
Michael J. Fox
A sad story too, but Fox is still going strong. He was a hit in Back to the Future, but he was later diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and it has affected him greatly. He fights for a cure, but he has also gotten back into acting, including a role on The Good Wife.
Another member of the Brat Pack, Lowe has kept his charming good looks ever since St. Elmo’s Fire. He has had some tough times, including being one of the first celebrities to be caught with a sex tape! He currently stars in Parks & Recreation on NBC.
Has he aged at all? We loved him as the Karate Kid and he still looks good, even in his 50s. He recently made a run for the title on Dancing with the Stars and was a fan favorite.
He starred in Taps in 1981, but that was only the beginning for Penn. He has gone on to star in many movies and has won two Oscars for those roles. While his looks may be questionable with that mustache, his career is going strong as an A-list actor.
He got started on Stand By Me, but he has gone on to make a name for himself in the TV world. He won an Emmy for his role on 24 and currently stars in the Fox drama Touch. He is still looking good!
Tom Cruise got his start in the 80s, starring in such films as Risky Business and Top Gun. Many people wanted to look more and more under that shirt up above! Cruise is still looking good in 2012 and going strong in the business, despite his divorce from Katie Holmes recently.
Keanu took the spotlight when he starred in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and went on to bigger and better things. Looks stuck with him and we are about to see a third installment of Bill and Ted, which he confirmed in 2011.
Anthony Michael Hall
A member of the Brat Pack, Hall was a staple in all the ’80s teen movies, like Breakfast Club. He is still going strong and appeared in The Dark Knight.
Another member of the Brat Pack, Emilio was a huge hit in the 80s with the other members. However, his brother Charlie Sheen has stolen all the limelight the past few years, but he still looks good.
Unlike his friend Corey Haim, Feldman has survived the crazy road of addiction and fame. He still has issues with drugs and alcohol, but he is still trying things out in the reality TV world.
Can anyone think of the ’80s without Miami Vice? He brought on the loafers with no socks and t-shirts under sports jackets, but Johnson isn’t look bad today. He has starred in some roles since Sonny, including on Nash Bridges.
The Baldwin brothers were staples in everything in the ’80s and now, so long after, Alec is still going strong with a starring role on the hit show 30 Rock and a new marriage and recent weight loss. He is looking good!
Robert Downey Jr.
What a ride for Robert. He had hit it big in the ’80s with some hit movies, but then went downhill with a drug and alcohol addiction. He won us back with some huge roles, like Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes. The drugs didn’t help him age well though.
Heathers was the big movie for Slater in the ’80s and we all thought he was so dreamy. He still looks good and was last seen on the FOX sitcom Breaking In, which did not get renewed last year.
