“I think making love is the best form of exercise,” said Hollywood’s matinee idol Archibald Alexander Leach. Oh? You’re unfamiliar with his work? Let us remind you of his screen name—Cary Grant, which he adopted from a character he played in Nikki, alongside the help of a telephone directory. This man defied and introduced new boundaries of masculinity through his exuberant splendor into the silver screen. Grant worked and partied with the biggest artists of the day, including Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Alfred Hitchcock, and Marilyn Monroe. And has defined an ideal of masculinity for men for the last several decades.
Edited by Yann-Brice Dherbier, Cary Grant: A Life in Pictures is the latest anthology which allows us access to the finest photographs of Mr. Grant; a collection of which reveals the essence of his talent and character. Cary Grant’s enchanting life story is depicted by an iconographic ‘gentleman’ style. The book includes photographs of Grant at age four, and even some shirtless photos of him and American actor Randolph Scott in the swimming pool of their ‘bachelor pad’.
The handsome lothario who has subdued Hollywood with his talent and ability leaves only success in his wake, and we remember him for his sex appeal and gallantry. In essence, he’s very hot. Enjoy these hot photos of him.
