We’re not ashamed to admit that we have seen High School Musical more times than we can count, and it’s all thanks to our main squeeze, Zac Efron! The 26 year-old crooning cutie has the voice of an angel, the hair of James Dean, and, well, have you seen his abs?!

Michael B. Jordan has taken Hollywood (and our hearts) by storm, and we’re definitely okay with it! His million-dollar smile and those major acting chops have definitely made the 27 year-old him a household name, starring in hits like Chronicle and Fruitvale Station, and we have totally fallen head-over-heels!

Oh, Miles. This too-cute newbie can be our leading man any day! He made us cry in The Spectacular Now, shocked us in 21 & Over, & made us laugh out loud in That Awkward Moment, and it’s safe to say we never want this relationship to end!
