Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds have all revealed their "first" celebrity crushes.
The Hollywood actor voices the character of overprotective father Grug in 3D animated comedy The Croods, alongside Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds.
In the film, Grug guards his daughter - voiced by Emma - from a teenage boy called Guy, who is portrayed by Ryan.
The prehistoric-set film follows the world's first family and Nicolas has revealed his "first" ever crush in keeping with the theme.
"Raquel Welch. And I met her at the premiere of a movie called Birdy. She introduced herself and I said, 'I have had so many dreams about you,' and I made Raquel Welsh blush. It was a great day," he smiled in an interview with ET Online.
Emma and Ryan also revealed the celebrities they used to admire, with blonde beauty Emma naming former Home Improvement star Jonathan Taylor Thomas as her first dreamboat, while Ryan deadpanned: "Tim Allen".
Nicolas - who has two sons - also explained that that he identifies with his film character.
The star believes parents should keep an eye on their children at all times, as the world can be a dangerous place.
"If you're a father who loves your children, it's impossible not to have some concern, especially in this day and age. All you have to do is turn on the news. But my character in the movie takes it way too far," he said.
