Penelope Cruz: Denis Fisher/London Features

DAVID SPADE (”Just Shoot Me”) ”My first: Farrah, of course. My most recent: one of the Backstreet Boys.”

JENNA LEWIS (”Survivor”) ”MacGyver. Not only is Richard Dean Anderson attractive, he could make a bomb out of a toothpick.”

BRUCE VILANCH (”Hollywood Squares”) ”Sandra Dee, but that was before I discovered Tab Hunter.”

JENNY McCARTHY ”Chad Lowe. How dorky am I?”

TOM HANKS ”Oh landy. Sophia Loren. Come on, who else is there?”

HEAVY D ”Pam Grier. She could kick my ass, but she was hot.”

MING-NA (”ER”) ”Shaun Cassidy and The Fonz. Looking back, I don’t know what I was thinking.”

HEATHER GRAHAM ”Dustin Hoffman in ‘Tootsie.’ He was a really good actor.”

PENÉLOPE CRUZ (”All the Pretty Horses”) ”Marilyn Monroe and Shirley MacLaine. I’m not a lesbian, but…you can feel attraction in so many ways.”

KATHY GRIFFIN ”Peter Frampton. I loved his skinny, badass bare chest on ‘Frampton Comes Alive!”’

MICHAEL CAINE ”Shirley Temple. At least I was the same age as her at the time — it wasn’t pedophilia.”

COURTNEY LOVE ”Judd Nelson from ‘The Breakfast Club.”’

KATE HUDSON (”Almost Famous”) ”Corey Haim or Fred Savage in ‘The Wonder Years.”’

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ”Sam from ‘Who’s the Boss?’ [Alyssa Milano]. She was hot and could play sports, too.”

JEREMY PIVEN (”The Family Man”) ”Brooke Shields — it was her golden locks, full lips, olive skin, and firm buttocks.”

BROOKE SHIELDS ”David Cassidy — the way he pronounced ‘Aaaa Think I Love You.”’

ALAN RACHINS (”Dharma & Greg”) ”Jean Simmons. The actress from [1949’s] ‘The Blue Lagoon,’ not the guy from Kiss.”

CARMEN ELECTRA ”Paul Stanley from Kiss. Something about that [eye] star was very sexy.”

PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN (”State and Main”) ”Debra Winger. I was 13 years old and…I cried for a week after ‘Terms of Endearment.’ I’m not even kidding.”

MATTHEW LILLARD (”Scooby-Doo”) ”Kathleen Turner, who later became my mom in a movie [1994’s ‘Serial Mom’]?so that is kind of gross.”

DIANE LANE (”The Perfect Storm”) ”John Travolta. He ruled a 15 year span of puberty for me and a generation of women.”

KELLY PRESTON ”I didn’t have any until John [Travolta]. And I got him. Pretty good, eh?”
