Zac Efron may play a teen in the back-to-high school comedy 17 Again (on DVD Aug. 11), but the former Marie Claire boy crush is actually almost 22. Now that the king of choreographed dance routines can act out a convincing midlife crisis (albeit in the body of a 17-year-old), we thought it was time to update our list of boy crushes who are totally hot--but make us feel, well, a little creepy about the fact that they can't legally buy us a beer.
Twilight star Taylor Lautner (17) is hot in that "neighbor who um, really grew up over the summer" way. This fall, he returns to screens in New Moon with an impressive six-pack. You can try to forget he's not yet legal, or you can join in on some countdown-to-18 fun.
The Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant (20), who was named 2007-2008 NBA Rookie of the Year, has obviously got game. The baby-faced basketball player with multimillion-dollar endorsements (and his own signature shoe!) is the kind of boy we'd take home to our mothers.
With his humble, side-of-the-mouth grin, Rupert Grint (20) is our favorite kind of Hollywood heartthrob : the kind with serious acting chops. We love the bashful redheaded actor for sneaking indie roles in Driving Lessons and Cherrybomb in between his Harry Potter blockbusters.
Pro-skateboarder Ryan Sheckler (19) and his Southern California surfer good looks remind us of that tattooed skater boy we never had a chance with in high school. Despite Sheckler's MTV reality show and X Games medals, we'll still pretend we have a shot.
Newcomer Gaelan Connell (20) stars opposite Vanessa Hudgens in Bandslam (in theaters Aug. 14). We think he's cute in that earnest, slightly awkward, Michael Cera kind of way. And he's in a band.
