Jonathan Taylor Thomas turned 30 today. 30. Excuse me, I’m having trouble breathing. JTT was my first celebrity crush. This makes me feel immensely old. I remember growing up, watching him on Home Improvement, reading Tiger Beat and Bop and all those teen magazines and tearing his photograph out of them and taping them to my wall. I remember sitting through multiple viewings of Man of the House (“I had a squirrel named numb nuts, once.”), Wild America and Tom and Huck, just because he was in them.
I think I’m having an anxiety attack. I know that most Tumblr users are anywhere between 5-10 years younger than I am and might not understand my shock right now, but I’m officially mid-twenties and this is life kicking me in the face and reminding me that I’m getting older every day. (Don’t even think about reminding me that Devon Sawa is 33. I’ve already had a panic attack over his age, too.)
