The Blue Lagoon's Christopher Atkins is Still Dreamy, You Guys.
Remember his curly blonde hair and blue eyes as mesmerizing as The Blue Lagoon itself?
Christopher Atkins, best known as marooned teen Richard Lestrange, gave audiences one more reason to be jealous of co-star Brooke Shields back when the hit film was released in 1980.
He achieved a Golden Globe nomination and instant fame for his debut movie role, and even made a cameo appearance in Lifetime's 2012 franchise revival, Blue Lagoon: The Awakening. It's crazy that over 30 years have gone by since we were introduced to this loin-clothed pop culture heartthrob, and recently, I spoke with Chris about his time as a teen idol and what he's up to now.
