Though his trailblazing Olympic romp made him a household name, Rippon admitted he still feels like the “same old hot mess” he was 10 years ago: “My life has completely changed, but at the core I’m still that same old disaster.”
He also revealed his celebrity crushes: Jake Gyllenhaal is his default “solid” choice, and he used to be into Harry Styles. But he’s recently become smitten with Shawn Mendes.
“Here’s the thing, I was sleeping on [Mendes]—not literally! But I didn’t realize how cute he was.”
