My Kind of Hero

In an ideal world, my favourite kind of hero would be powerful, magnetic, comfortable in his own skin, unique, brave, compassionate without being wimpy, kind without being sugary, passionate, etc.

In the movies, the type of actor I'm talking about is Steve McQueen. He doesn't conform, he's a bit of a bad boy, you know he wouldn't wimp out of something. The king of cool.

I can't find anyone to compare with him nowadays but other actors I love to watch on the big screen are Matthew McConnaughey and Colin farrell.

There's just something about these three that really 'do it' for me.

What's your kind of hero like?

Hi Lynette

Do I agree on this one. I spent yesterday watching two films on another great actor of byone times...Burt Lancaster...I watched The Rose Tatoo and The Rainmaker. I truly believe they don't make films like those anymore. I wanted to let you know I've put up a link to your blog on my blog page at blogspot :-).

Hi Audrey,

I love Burt Lancaster, especially after watching him recently in 'The Swimmer'. That man was in fantastic shape for his age!
