To help launch their SPIN Essential album Heartthrob, Tegan and Sara put some of their famous friends on the hot seat, asking them to dredge up memories of the heatthrobs that defined their childhoods. Today, SPIN brings you the final installment in the interview series as the band launches its tour in New York City and we say farewell to the sisters' SPIN cover (we'll be announcing who our next cover star is a little later today).

The group's final subjects are an appropriate pair, a duo of onetime teen idols who are now married — Aussie musician Ben Lee and actress Ione Skye, whose teenage dreams were a little different. Skye's obsession: Woody Allen. Lee's: Mötley Crüe. But did he think they were hot? "I wouldn't have used the word hot at that stage, but there was probably some homoerotic thing going on," he laughs.
