To celebrate the 25th anniversary of his film The Unforgiven, we’ve put together this slideshow as an homage to the man.
Oh, Clint… You are an accomplished actor, director and music composer, not to mention the owner of four Oscars. At 87, you’re probably the hottest octogenarian on the planet. We love that you invented your signature snarl decades before Billy Idol. Having starred in Sergio Leone’s spaghetti Westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, you are this generation’s favorite cowboy. We appreciate that you served your country as a lifeguard during the Korean War and you even survived a plane crash. Using this event as inspiration, you went on to direct the powerful film Sully about Chesley Sullenberger, who landed a commercial airliner safely in the Hudson River. But we want to travel back in time when your blue eyes were the color of the Mediterranean Sea and your pecs were in top form. But since Apple hasn’t invented a time machine yet, we’ll have to settle for this slideshow.
