2002’s “Maid in Manhattan” wasn’t exactly cinematic brilliance (I can only watch J.Lo play the beautiful underdog so many times), but something great did come out of it: Tyler Posey … and my decade-long crush on him. I’m just trynna ring around the rosie Posey, if yaknowwhatImean. Unlike most kids, Tyler never had an awkward phase. He was way cute in “Maid in Manhattan,” and now, in MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” well … I’ll let his abs do all the talkin’.

Not only has he grown into a handsome man and talented actor, but Tyler is a genuinely nice guy who gives back and Tweets about his girlfriend. (If that doesn’t scream “nice guy,” I don’t know what does!) Last year, Tyler teamed up with MTV Act to spread the word about Love Is Louder — a social media movement that reminds teens that love can overcome all bullying, violence, and werewolf bites. To join the movement, write “Love Is Louder” on your hand(s) and post the photo online with the caption, “Love Is Louder than (insert your words of choice here).” Hundreds of thousands of young people — including your favorite werewolf — have already done it.
