16 people who have mortifying crushes just like you

Introducing #shamelust.


Shamelust is when you find a celebrity or a fictional character really hot – but it would bring shame upon you if people found out.

People on Twitter were willing to give up theirs, though, and the #shamelust phenomenon was born:

1. This very specific reference

2. Poor Seth Rogen

3. Malcolm in the Middle, not too shameful

4. Harry Potter-themed

5. Old or young version, though?

No shame in that.

6. Ah yes, a young Anthony Michael Hall. Much shame

7. Harsh, but maybe a fair call

8. Even The Wrestler couldn’t save Mickey Rourke from becoming a Shamelust

9. Sean Kingston, still getting all them beaaautiful girls (despite being a Shamelust)

10. It doesn’t even matter if they’re animated, you can still feel the shame

11. No apologies necessary

12. What is happening here?

13. Ah, Bob’s Burgers

14. This is unforgivable

15. That stare, though

16. This takes a turn to the surreal
