CHILDHOOD CRUSHES: MICHAEL ONTKEAN


My first memory of Michael is from The Rookies and I remember my sister and I crying when he was killed. I was ten years old.

Then, when Making Love came out, I was determined to see it, not so much for him (but he helped) and a 2.5 mile walk in about 5 inches of snow wasn't and didn't stop me. I went to that movie three times and have since watched it countless times. Harry Hamlin was pretty hot but he didn't and never did it for me.

Michael has aged very, very well and has been in several other favorites/notable roles including an infamous strip scene in Slap Shot, as the Sheriff in Twin Peaks, Postcards from the Edge and Just the Way You Are.

  2. Loved him...can't believe I lost track. He was super hot in Making Love, and I agree...Harry Hamlin does nothing for me.

  3. It's a shame that "Making Love" is such a terrible movie. They were both so hot and at their primes.

  4. Have to say that movie, "Making Love" change me so much when I was a teenager. I did nt know that men could feel that a way towards other Men. I thougth you just had sex with them and left it as that. Love the movie.
