Stephen Colbert's First Celebrity Crush Is One Every Theater Kid Can Relate To

Stephen Colbert is a happily married man, but he’ll still admit to a celebrity crush or two. After posing for InStyle’s September issue, the late night host took a questionnaire by teen mag Tiger Beat. Watch him discuss his hilarious answers with InStyle’s Editor-in-Chief Laura Brown in the video at top.

“My ideal woman is Twiggy. My ideal salad dressing is Green Goddess. I love eating Space Food Sticks, and I think we’re going to make it to the moon,” he told Brown.

But as for his first-ever celebrity crush, Colbert named someone very different from Twiggy. “I remember having a crush on Raquel Welch when I was a child,” he said, before remembering the first moment he thought a girl was “kind of cute.”

“Oh, you know what, Liza Minnelli! I saw her photo when I was going to the dentist when I was like six years old, and it was from Cabaret.” Considering the funny man went on to major in theater at Northwestern University, a Broadway crush makes a whole lot of sense.
