Back in the early ’80s, Rick Springfield was the hottest teen idol out there. He had huge hits like Jessie’s Girl and I’ve Done Everything for You and he was starring on General Hospital as Dr Noah Drake. So it should be no surprise that child actress Helen Hunt was mad about him like so many other girls her age.
Well the 19 year old was working on the same lot as him in 1982 and she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she left a note on his car windshield declaring her love. How did he respond? Let’s just say Don’t Talk to Strangers is not only one of his songs it is what he does.
Sadly, the Oscar winner never heard from her, but she was able to share that story almost 35 years later. I wonder how he will react when he hears this? He will probably say, “I hate myself.” Imagine what could’ve been if he would’ve acted on her affair of the heart?
