So. I kind of have a crush. On two old men.
No, I’m not being weird and gross. I think these two old men were hot, when they were young men.
See, I watched both The Way We Were and Love Story last week. Ever since I saw the episode of SATC when Carrie relates to the character of Katie (and identifies Big as Hubbell) in The Way We Were, I’ve been wanting to see it.
Then, I watched an old episode of Oprah not long ago where she was chatting with the stars of the chick flick classic Love Story, so I added it to my list of old movies I wanted to see, too.
I bought both movies and really enjoyed them. I liked The Way We Were better than Love Story, but I was glad I saw both of them.
And that brings me to my two new old man crushes.
Robert Redford and Ryan O’Neal. Young Robert Redford and Ryan O’Neal. Not the 75- and 70-year-old men they are now. That would be creepy.
Take a look:
Redford as Hubbell in The Way We Were
With co-star Barbara Streisand, who played Katie in The Way We Were
O’Neal as Oliver Barrett IV in Love Story
Love. Love this face.
With co-star Ali McGraw, who played Jenny Cavalleri in Love Story
There’s just something about black-and-white photos of old movie stars in their prime…am I right??
So. I know I’m not the first one to discover these guys. They’ve kind of been famous for, like, fifty years.
Doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate ‘em on Man Candy Monday.
Hope you can at least understand the appreciation.
