Male Hollywood Legends
Whilst searching the World Wide Web for hot new contenders for our Six Pack Sunday gallery, I got side tracked (as usual) and stumbled across a picture of James Dean. WOW! I actually found myself staring at the screen of my laptop as his chiseled face, his cute floppy hair and fell a thousand feet in to his dreamy green eyes. A quick slap of my face bought me back to reality and the six pack hunt quickly turned to what other handsome male Hollywood legends I can set my eyes upon. So here they are ladies! Sod your Johnny Depp’s and Brad Pitts and make sure your sitting down as these guys will weaken your knees something silly!
Born in Omaha, Nebraska, and youngest of three, Brando was born a bit of a bad boy and was expelled from a number of his schools. His father set him on the straight and narrow, sent him to acting school and voila! He was straight in the big time at Hollywood. Brando’s remarkable performance in The Godfather (1972) netted him an Oscar but refused to accept it because the U.S. and especially Hollywood were discriminating against Native Americans.
For Hollywood, Clift represented an entirely different kind of leading man. He was sensitive and vulnerable, and fearless in the roles he accepted, even when they cast him as a villain. While the film world celebrated his heartthrob status, gossip columnists constantly linked Clift with a close friend called Taylor. Clift and those around him hid the fact he was gay.
Screen legend, superstar, and the man with the most famous blue eyes in movie history, Paul Leonard Newman was born in January 1925, in Cleveland, Ohio. Like Brando, Newman had been kicked out of Ohio University for unruly behaviour. The sure were bad boys when they were younger! Brando says Paul Newman was bi-sexual. Brando said “He never fooled me. Paul Newman had just as many on-location affairs as the rest of us, and he was just as bisexual as I was. But, where I was always getting caught with my pants down, he managed to do it in the dark.” Well well well!
Gene Kelly excelled at so many things over the course of his lengthy career, it seemed like he could have successfully tackled virtually any aspect of motion picture performing or production. His remarkable talents as a dancer were justifiably legendary. His most memorable films, most of which he choreographed, included ‘An American in Paris’ and ‘Singin’ in the Rain’, one of the greatest musicals ever made, in which Kelly starred in the famous dance sequence of the title song.
Here we go ladies some home bred talent for you, all the way from Hobart, Tasmania is Errol Flynn. Famous for his romantic roles and Playboy lifestyle. He was a textbook womanizer, an astoundingly successful player, one of the guys you love to hate; the itch you have to scratch.
Last and certainly not least is James Dean, the guy who made stonewash jeans with a white t-shirt sexy as hell. Dean’s status as a cultural icon is best embodied in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled high school rebel Jim Stark.
That’s it, I cant take more hotness in one article! I’m off to download and update my classic Hollywood movie collection! See you later ladies!
