I married three of the most gorgeous baby boomer starlets.
My first wife was also a beautiful actress, but not as well know. She made up for that by being the grandniece of Russian writer Leo Tolstoy.
As you can see, they all look alike. I fell for that type.
I was the type every baby boomer gal fell for: tall, dark, handsome and buff – your classic Hollywood matinee idol. During the 1950s, I made 26 movies. My roles included Joshua in the Ten Commandments, Hajji himself in the Adventures of Hajji Baba, and Exodus.
In the 1960s, my acting career began running out of steam. I guess I was a poor man’s Tony Curtis, but even that pretty boy eventually lost his celebrity luster.
So I devoted myself to my lovely ladies. I directed all of them in movies and personally took their Playboy photo shots.
I also directed two hit music videos for Shania Twain.
Beautiful women, just couldn’t stay away from them. Answer at end of post.
