The year was 2001, and admit it, you had a huge crush on Michael Moscovitz, just like Mia Thermopolis.

As the older brother of Mia’s best friend, Lily, Michael was like #CRUSHGOALS. He was in a band! He was totally sweet and kind! And most importantly, he liked Mia for who she was, way before her princess transformation!! You were like ~swoon~, and you swooned hard.

The gentleman behind Michael, Robert Schwartzman, is no stranger to swooning. As the lead singer of Rooney, he’s been on our radar for a very long time — and will probably stay there forever. If you can believe it, Schwartzman has only gotten MORE ATTRACTIVE over the last 15 years, and now seems like a perfect time to revisit that crush. Prepare for feelings to come rushing back to you, and hard.

He’s still, clearly, got amazing hair that makes us go, “hello yes,” and also “hello what kind of shampoo/conditioner do you use, because we want some, too.”

Also, please don’t ever forget that he is a hella accomplished musician.

Though we’re all now 15 years older, Schartzman is still pretty much the same, and pretty much perfect.

Here’s to the next 15 years, and the next 15 years of having a forever-crush on Michael Moscovitz.
