There are lots of things to fondly remember about the 2000s — flip phones, rhinestone-bedazzled shirts and (of course) some seriously super-hot stars! Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at some of our favorite 2000s crushes and seeing what they're up to now, starting with Hayden Christensen, whose movie "Jumper" came out 10 years ago on Feb. 14, 2008. Hayden was one of the hotties of the aughts! The young actor had virtually no experience when he was cast as Anakin Skywalker in 2002's "Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones." Hayden reprised his role in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith" in 2005. He then famously met "The O.C." starlet and future fiancée Rachel Bilson while making "Jumper" more than a decade ago…
Hayden Christensen decided to take a break from acting at the peak of his career because he felt he hadn't earned his success. After a few years away from Hollywood, Hayden is now back! He recently starred in "First Kill" with Bruce Willis and has two films, "Numb, at the Edge of the End" and "Little Italy," in post-production. He's also a father: He welcomed a daughter, Briar Rose, with Rachel Bilson in 2014. Rachel and Hayden split in 2017 after 10 years of dating.

Chad Michael Murray first gained fame when he was cast as Lucas Scott on the WB/CW series "One Tree Hill" in 2003. He solidified his status as a true heartthrob with starring roles in the films "Freaky Friday" in 2003, "A Cinderella Story" in 2004 and "House of Wax" in 2005. During his heyday, Chad was also briefly married to "Hill" co-star Sophia Bush.
Today, Chad Michael Murray is still gracing our TV screens, though he's now a married father of two. The actor wed "Chosen" co-star Sarah Roemer (pictured here) in 2015 and the couple welcomed a son in May 2015 and a daughter in March 2017. Chad most recently starred on ABC's "Agent Carter" and CMT's "Sun Records." Fans will soon be able to see him in the 2018 Hallmark Channel original movie "The Beach House" with "Friday Night Lights" star Minka Kelly and "Groundhog Day" actress Andie MacDowell.
Fans everywhere first fell in love with Orlando Bloom when he appeared as Legolas in the "Lord of the Rings" film series in 2001. He was a relatively unknown actor at the time, having only graduated from college two days before being cast! Orlando went on to capture our hearts with starring roles in "Troy" in 2004, "Kingdom of Heaven" in 2005 and "Pirates of the Caribbean" from 2003 to 2007.
Today, Orlando Bloom is just as dreamy as ever! The actor shares a son, Flynn, with supermodel ex-wife Miranda Kerr. The couple divorced in 2013 after three years of marriage. Orlando, who went on to date pop star Katy Perry for a year, is also still one of Hollywood's go-to actors with roles in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales," "Romans" and "S.M.A.R.T. Chase," and will soon be coming to a small screen near you. The British star is set to play Rycroft Philostrate on the Amazon original series "Carnival Row" in 2019.
With his boy-next-door good looks, Chris Klein was a very crushable actor in the 2000s. He first entered the Hollywood scene with the super-successful "American Pie" film series from 1999 to 2001. He went on to star in big hits "Say It Isn't So" in 2001 and "Just Friends" in 2005. Chris also became engaged to then-Hollywood "It" girl Katie Holmes in 2003 after three years of dating.
Chris Klein is now a married man, but his wife isn't Katie Holmes! The couple broke off their engagement in 2005. Chris went on to marry travel agent Laina Rose Thyfault in 2015. They welcomed a son, Frederick Easton Klein, in July 2016 and are expecting their second child in the spring of 2018. Chris has also starred in a slew of movies and TV shows since the early 2000s including "American Reunion," "Authors Anonymous" and "Game of Aces." After making headlines for his alcohol addiction issues in the aughts, Chris got sober in 2010.
Milo Ventimiglia was swoon-worthy from the moment he graced our screens as brooding Jess Mariano on "Gilmore Girls." He continued to rock our worlds on "American Dreams," "Heroes" and in "Rocky Balboa," all the while dating some of Hollywood's biggest young stars. He was in relationship with "Gilmore" co-star Alexis Bledel from 2002 to 2006 and "Heroes" co-star Hayden Panettiere from 2007 to 2009.
Milo Ventimiglia is still dominating the small screen today! The actor is currently starring as the lovable, imperfectly perfect Jack Pearson on NBC's "This Is Us." The performance earned him his first Emmy nomination for outstanding lead actor in a drama series in 2017. Fans will also soon be able to enjoy Milo in theaters: He's set to star in the romantic comedy "Second Act" with Jennifer Lopez and Vanessa Hudgens in 2018.
Josh Hartnett was the quintessential hot, up-and-coming movie star of the 2000s. He got his start in "The Virgin Suicides" in 1999 before starring in "Pearl Harbor" in 2001, "Black Hawk Down" in 2001, "40 Days and 40 Nights" in 2002 and "Sin City" in 2005. Josh seemed poised for super stardom but…
Josh Hartnett decided to step away from acting after hitting it big in the 2000s. "I know what it's like to be in that whole world. I was up there for a couple of years, and it was uncomfortable. I think trying to stay at the top is a shortcut to unhappiness," he said in 2004. "I spent a bit of time really thinking about whether this was the right thing for me." Lucky for us, Josh eventually returned to Hollywood with roles in "Wild Horses" in 2015, "Penny Dreadful from 2014 to 2016 and "6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain" in 2017. He is also now a father. He shares two children with his longtime partner, actress Tamsin Egerton.
Sean Patrick Thomas made viewers melt when he first appeared on our movie screens in "Save the Last Dance" in 2001. His hotness (and talent!) was solidified with roles in "Barbershop" in 2002, "Halloween Resurrection" in 2002 and "Barbershop 2" in 2004.
Today, Sean Patrick Thomas is a married father of two who is still enjoying a successful acting career. He married Aonika Laurent, pictured here, in New Orleans on April 22, 2006. The couple share one daughter and a son. Sean reprised his role as Jimmy James in "Barbershop: The Next Cut" in 2013, starred on "Criminal Minds" in 2017 and is scheduled to appear in 2018's "The Children."
You can't talk about the 2000s and not mention Ashton Kutcher! Between his roles in "That '70s Show," "Dude, Where's My Car," "Just Married" and "A Lot Like Love," his MTV show "Punk'd," his Von Dutch trucker hats and his study of Kabbalah, Ashton truly defined the aughts era. During this time, the young actor also married Hollywood icon Demi Moore.
Today, Ashton Kutcher is still an actor, but also a venture capitalist, husband and father. He divorced Demi Moore in 2013 and married his "That '70s Show" co-star Mila Kunis in 2015. The stunning couple welcomed a daughter in 2014 and a son in 2016. Ashton is currently starring on "The Ranch" on Netflix after a four-year run on "Two and a Half Men." As a venture capitalist, he has investments in over 60 companies including Skype, Foursquare, Airbnb, Path and Fab.com. Impressive!
Gorgeous smile, beautiful blue-green eyes, muscular physique and a boy-next-door personality — what's not to love? Tom Welling first gained recognition when he was cast as Clark Kent on the WB/CW series "Smallville" in 2001. He went on to showcase his stunning good looks and talent in "Cheaper by the Dozen" in 2003, "Cheaper by the Dozen 2" in 2005 and "The Fog" in 2005. Tom also married model Jamie White in 2002 when he was 25.
He now has salt-and-pepper hair, but Tom Welling is just as hot as ever. The actor currently stars as Marcus Pierce on the FOX superhero drama series "Lucifer" and previously starred in "Draft Day" and "The Choice." Tom divorced wife Jamie White in 2015 and is currently in a relationship with Saddler Club founder Jessica Rose Lee.
One of our first crushes, Jesse Bradford, had people everywhere swooning after he starred in the teenage cheerleading comedy "Bring It On" in 2000. Fans fell even more in love with him after his leading roles in action flick "Clockstoppers" and the thriller "Swimfan."
Jesse Bradford is still working hard! He currently stars on the USA Network show "Shooter" and has made appearances in "The Year Of Spectacular Men," "Dead Awake" and "Guys With Kids." Fans were also surprised to learn that Jesse was reportedly dating rapper Azealia Banks in 2015. No word on if the two are still together.
Adam Brody had it all — boyish good looks and a charming personality to match. The young actor first achieved stardom when he was cast as Seth Cohen on "The O.C." in 2003. He became an instant teen idol and was deemed "TV's sexiest geek" by the Los Angeles Times. He went on to star in "Grind," "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" and "Jennifer's Body" and dated his "The O.C." co-star Rachel Bilson.
Today, Adam Brody is still acting — and he's a married father of one. He and Rachel Bilson broke up (obvi) and Adam began dating fellow 2000s star and "Gossip Girl" actress Leighton Meester. The two married in 2014 and welcomed a daughter, Arlo Day Brody, in 2015. Fans can catch Adam on Crackle's "StartUps" and in recent movies such as "CHiPs" and "The Wanting."
Ryan Gosling… definitely the hottest Ryan in Hollywood (don't @ us). Ryan was involved in show business from childhood ("The Mickey Mouse Club," "Goosebumps") but achieved widespread recognition in the 2000s when he was cast in "The Notebook." The blonde cutie went on to star in "Half Nelson" in 2005 and "Lars and the Real Girl" in 2007. Ryan also began dating his "Notebook" co-star (and fellow Canadian) Rachel McAdams in 2005. Romantic sigh!
Ryan Gosling is still hot and still super-successful today.The actor has been nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes and won a Globe for his work in the critically praised "La La Land." Ryan has also starred in other acclaimed films such as "Crazy, Stupid, Love," "The Big Short," "Blue Valentine" and "The Place Beyond the Pines," where he met current love Eva Mendes. Ryan and Eva began dating in 2011 and have since welcomed two daughters, Esmeralda in 2014 and Amada in 2016.
We were definitely saying "Yeah!" to Usher in the 2000s! The sexy singer dominated the radio at the time with singles "U Remind Me," "U Got It Bad"and "U Don't Have to Call" in 2001. His "8701" album sold 8 million copies worldwide and Usher won his first two Grammy Awards in 2002 and 2003. His career-defining album, "Confessions," would come out a year later and establish him as one of the best selling musical artists of the 2000s thanks to worldwide sales of 20 million! The album featured four consecutive No. 1 singles — "Yeah!," "Burn," "Confessions Part II" and "My Boo" — and was certified diamond by the RIAA (meaning it sold more than 10 million copies). In the midst of all this success, Usher was also dating one of the most beautiful singers in the game, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas from TLC.
Today, Usher is just as handsome as he was in his younger years and is one of the most established and respected artists in music. The singer welcomed two sons with Tameka Foster in 2007 and 2008 before the pair divorced in 2009. Usher, who's served as a coach on "The Voice," is now married to longtime love and manager Grace Miguel. He's also still making hits with chart-topping singles like "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love," "There Goes My Baby," "I Don't Mind" and "No Limit."
Our favorite boy band crush, Justin Timberlake, was everything in the 2000s. JT first became a heartthrob as a member of *NSYNC in the '90s and early 2000s after previously finding fame on "The All New Mickey Mouse Club." The group had several hits, such as "It's Gonna Be Me" and "Tearin' Up My Heart," before going on hiatus in 2002. Justin then released his chart-topping first solo album, "Justified," and earned two Grammy Awards in 2002. Next up was the release of his second album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," which debuted atop the U.S. Billboard 200 and produced the No. 1 singles "SexyBack," "My Love" and "What Goes Around… Comes Around." JT was also dating some of Hollywood's hottest stars during this time, including Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel.
Justin Timberlake is now a super-successful family man. The singer-actor focused heavily on his acting career after his second album and has starred in "The Social Network," "Bad Teacher," "Friends with Benefits" and "Trolls" in recent years in addition to showing off his comedic chops in several memorable sketches on "Saturday Night Live." But JT hasn't forgotten his first love — music — and released two albums, "The 20/20 Experience" and "The 20/20 Experience — Part 2," in 2013 followed by the album "Man in the Woods" in February 2018. Justin — who performed during the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show — married Jessica Biel in 2012. They welcomed son Silas in 2015.
