Hollywood’s Leading Men, Then and Now

By Staff Writer

There are certain names that have been circulating around the entertainment industry for decades, let's take a look at the careers of Hollywood's longest leading men.  

Pierce Brosnon    Making his debut as the most popular James Bond since Sean Connery, Brosnon took the world of espionage by storm with his incredible good looks and a voice that makes women turn to jelly.  These days, the dashing spy has immersed himself in charity work and environmental causes, which also means the striking good looks have been somewhat neglected.  But as Brosnon proved in Mama Mia! last summer, he hasn't lost the ability make women swoon, just now he does it with a sense of humor instead of an Aston Martin.

Rod Stewart       Womanizer extraordinaire, Stewart has kept the same look through his 40 year career.  Perhaps the banana hammocks were only slightly more acceptable back in his early days, but you can bet no one has told him it's time to put the upper thigh away.  Not to mention the highlighted hair at the age of 64. .  

Alec Baldwin     The best looking and most successful of the Baldwin brothers, Alec's career has never been hotter.  With his role on 30 Rock, Baldwin has snagged an Emmy, as well as all the best lines on the show.  Even with his recent incredible success, age hasn't treated him well; he may have all of his head hair intact, but the same cannot be said for his jaw line.  

Val Kilmer            One of the saddest, but best examples of how youth really is beauty, Kilmer has never looked so saggy.  In 1986, he undoubtably stole the spotlight from Tom Cruise in Top Gun; in terms of attractiveness, no one held a candle to Kilmer's statuesque magnificence. The chiseled face has become puffy with age, hardly showing any indication that he was once one of the sexiest men in the entertainment biz.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Formerly Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia, Arnie was envied for his flawless physique and adored for his Austrian accent. However, since sacrificing his long Hollywood career for politics, the govenator  has never looked so. . . well, dumpy.  At least we can still remember him fondly as the Terminator from decades past.

Brendan Fraser    George of the Jungle was on television the other night, and I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw the body Mr. Fraser was rocking.  The perfect upper torso that was bouncing around the TV screen was so lean and perfect, I could hardly believe this man was the same one I had seen in tabloids earlier this week looking unimpressive, to put it nicely.  I can only hope that gorgeous body and face reappear in Fraser's upcoming film, GI Joe: Rise of Cobra.  

Clint Eastwood   The original Hollywood macho man, Eastwood has always played the rebel badass.  These days he looks more like a cranky grandpa who's libel to talk about the lack of manners of society's kids these days.  At least his movies are staying relevant.

Mickey Rourke    Just now making his comeback into entertainment, Rourke is a shell of his former self.  His role in The Outsiders immortalized his rugged sex appeal, but these days, between the absurd hair styles and designer outfits, it's difficult to take him seriously outside of his movie roles.  

Russel Crowe   I think the most that needs to be said is, remember Gladiator?  I do, and it makes me sad.

Richard Gere   Every lady's fantasy, he does yoga, is a social activist and legendary hottie.  Well, at least that's his legacy; Mr. Gere has taken the same track as Pierce Brosnon, onto saving the world and skipping the gym in the process.  We'll always love him for Pretty Woman, and if you ask me, he aged better than any other man in Hollywood.
