Writing that post about actors who hate their good movies got me thinking about how hot young Christopher Plummer was, which, to be fair, isn’t exactly a subject I haven’t ruminated on before. He’s not the only one for whom the sands of time has erased a lot of people’s knowledge about how bammin’ slammin’ bootylicious they used to be. And in some cases still are. Heyyyyy, Helen Mirren.
You can consider this a spiritual sequel to Joanna’s list from 2013 of 20 Actors You May Have Forgotten Were Once Face-Meltingly Hot. Michael Gambon? More like Michael Damnbon.
This list is brought to you by Brooklyn hipster Stalin.
I know he was on the first list, but look at the man. I can’t not.
Look at this fucking hipster sweater.
We all know Ford had gotten hot by the time Star Wars and the Indiana Jones movies rolled around, but check him out before then:
Speaking of Star Wars (the title of my autobiography)…
Billy Dee Williams
Olenna Tyrell if you’re nasty.
James Earl Jones
And finally, Leonard Nimoy, who isn’t really dead, you guys. He and his perfect bone structure are chilling with Robin Williams in a cabana somewhere. It’s fine.
