‘Blue Bloods’ Star Bridget Moynahan Revealed Why She ‘Would Have a Man Crush’ on Co-Star Tom Selleck

by Katie Maloney

Who hasn’t had a crush on “Blue Bloods” actor Tom Selleck? Whether you were swooning for him and his trendsetting mustache in the 80s, or you’re swooning for him and his on-trend mustache today, Tom Selleck will always be crush-worthy. His heartthrob status started when he starred in “Magnum P.I.” and it hasn’t faded even decades later. Even Bridget Moynahan, who plays Erin Reagan on the show, recognizes that she’s acting alongside a legend.

“Yea, I mean. He’s the patriarch of the show. And he’s a legend. He’s an icon. Everybody has known him over generations. So, it’s wonderful,” said Moynahan. “And he’s such a talent and he’s always had those moments where he can sprinkle some of his wisdom on you and to you.”

However, Moynahan knows that he wasn’t just known for his acting abilities or even his mustache. Selleck was also known for his dashing good looks. She even said that if she were just a little older at the height of Selleck’s popularity, he probably would have been her celebrity crush as a kid.

“I had the pleasure of helping him be honored at some event down in Florida recently. And they played a kind of mini-series on his life. He’s done so much work. And, yea, he was a total stud,” said Moynahan. “I’m sure if he was a little bit older, he would have been my man crush. For sure.”

However, after playing his daughter for the last 11 seasons of “Blue Bloods,” Moynahan said that she can’t really see Selleck as anything but a father figure.

“But now he’s my dad, so I can’t really have a crush on him,” said Moynahan.

Luckily, there are plenty of people around the world totally willing to crush on Tom Selleck.

‘Blue Bloods’ Actress Bridget Moynahan’s First Modeling Gig Was For Scuba Gear

It’s always interesting to hear about a famous actor’s path to success. For Bridget Moynahan, her career started in modeling. In fact, her first modeling gig was in the super high-end fashion world (just kidding) of scuba gear. During an interview in 2014, Moynahan described the gig.

“The first catalog I did was for scuba gear in Springfield, Massachusetts or something,” said Moynahan. “And I think I made like $60 a day, or, I don’t know, I felt like it was a lot of money. Anyways, it was better than waiting tables.”

After thinking for a minute, the “Blue Bloods” star vaguely remembered what she wore for the shoot.

“I think a bathing suit and fins,” said Moynahan. “I don’t even know why I’m telling you this because now it’s going to show up somewhere.”

Fortunately for Moynahan’s privacy, but unfortunately for us, her scuba modeling photo has never surfaced.
