It can happen to the best of us. As a matter of fact, it almost certainly does. One day you return to school after a long holiday weekend, and you realize that all the cute guys in your class have suddenly been upgraded to dream bae territory. That quiet and shy guy you always borrow a pencil from? Right, well now he's got muscles, a perfectly lopsided grin, and witty one-liner responses to jokes. And what are we supposed to do with all that?
The same thing happens with celeb guys, and you're about to see exactly what we mean. In 2016, we've been introduced to a ton of new stars who have only just begun to tug at our heartstrings in their new television shows and movies. We've also realized that a lot of the child stars who've been right at our sides since the earliest days of their careers are suddenly... different.
Of course, there's more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking, and that's why we're equally excited that these cuties come with awesome new projects for us to look out for. So we can really appreciate their art.
