Girl Meets World / October 29th, 2013 / 2 Comments

(Snipped)

If you grew up in the 90s and are romantically interested in men, chances are this Boy Meets World star is no stranger to you. You more than likely had a crush on him (and Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Mark-Paul Gosselaar). If you were a boy, you probably wanted his hair. But Rider had this to say about his Christian Slater-like hair and being a teen heartthrob: “It just wasn’t for me.”

Cosmo: Boy Meets World: The Complete Collection comes out on DVD on November 5, but it feels like the show ended yesterday. How did it feel to be a 90s icon-slash-teen heartthrob?

Rider Strong: I was never super-comfortable with it to be honest. I’m not a shy person, but I’m not the guy who wants to get his picture taken and want to be front and center. But, I didn’t even realize that I had been put into a certain category in American pop culture until long after. Somehow it was me, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, and a few other guys that were on safe shows, but our characters were relatively edgy. And while our characters weren’t doing drugs or anything provocative, we were portrayed as angsty rebellious teenagers that teen girls went crazy for. It would just be weird to go somewhere and have groups of girls scream and hyperventilate in front of you. I think it all stems from Beatle-mania — it feels like a very obligatory response. If I ever had a meet and greet with a fan, she would be shy and quiet usually. I don’t know, I think I was a bad, good teen idol. [Laughs]

Cosmo: Can we please talk about your hair for a second? I heard you hated the style on the show, but everyone else who was your age at the time was obsessed. Did you really not like it?

RS: I hated my hair. I came to the audition with that hairstyle, got the part, and the director Michael Jacobs never let me cut it from there on out. A bunch of girls at a sleepover told me to wear my hair like that — parted down the center — and I was 12, so I listened. It was my version of Christina Slater. But my hair is wavy and they would straighten it on the show and it would take forever. I wanted to cut my hair so bad, but the only time I got to was when we found out the show was going to be canceled.
