Default Hunks We Love!

This is not really a game...just thought we could post pics and info (if you want to) about some of our favorite HUNKS. They can be family, friends, actors, politicians, scientists, athletes, etc.

One of my favorites is John Travlota (I'll do George Clooney next...LOL)


John Travolta - Aviation Biography
In the tradition of celebrities in the cockpit, international superstar John Travolta is taking to the skies exactly 75 years after the world’s first nonstop solo Atlantic crossing by Charles Lindbergh. This July and August, Travolta will pilot his own Boeing 707 on a 13-city Spirit of Friendship Tour, serving as Ambassador-at-Large for Australian-based international airline Qantas. The 707, which was previously operated by the airline, has been repainted in 1960s’ Qantas livery for the tour.
Audiences may know that Travolta played an Air Force major piloting a Stealth Bomber in Broken Arrow, that he narrated a 50th anniversary documentary on The Blue Angels, and that he named his son Jett. Yet they may not be aware that he is a licensed jet pilot with a lifelong passion for aviation. Since earning his wings in 1974, he has logged close to an astounding 5,000 hours for reasons both professional and personal.
“Every cent of my first paychecks went to flying lessons,” recalls Travolta, who has trained in cockpits as diverse as his acting roles. They include qualifying as a captain in the Gulfstream II, Lear Jet 24, Hawker 1A, Citation 1 and 2, Tebuan, and Vampire Jet, and as first officer in the Boeing 707. Travolta keeps his skills up-to-date through continual refresher courses, training at American Airlines, Pan Am, SimuFlite and other institutions for over 20 years. Following extensive sessions at Qantas’s Sydney headquarters and with Boeing in Seattle, he has also successfully completed 747-400 First Officer simulator training. Qantas Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Geoff Dixon presented Travolta with his “wings” at Los Angeles airport on 24 June 2002. Travolta first became enamored of aviation as a child, at the same time absorbing a love of acting. His mother and sisters were stage performers and, in addition to seeing them perform, he regularly saw them off at the airport every time they flew out of town. He observed the flight paths of the closest airports – La Guardia, Teterboro and Newark – read books on aviation, and took particular interest in Constellations, DC-6s and DC-7s. Attesting to his early charisma, he persuaded the girls in his neighborhood to don their Brownie uniforms to play flight attendants (or stewardesses, as they were known in the pre-politically correct 1960s) as he captained his backyard airliner built by him and his father.
Having owned most of the aforementioned jets at one time, Travolta recently donated his Tebuan to a flight school in Florida and now owns only two aircraft: a Gulfstream II and a more spacious Boeing 707 purchased four years ago. In 32 years of flying since his first lessons in 1970, he has devoted more than a quarter of his 5,000 flying hours toward the Gulfstream, an impressive 1,372 hours, while logging several hundred in the 707.
“I find flying extroverting – it puts your attention outside yourself – you’re responsible for a machine that’s going through the air at 600 mph. The sensation is thrilling and there’s a beauty and an art form to it,” says Travolta, who is accompanied by two other captains, flight attendants and an engineer on his own transoceanic flights. Paying homage to the classic elegance and professionalism of the Qantas fleet, he runs each private flight like the finest stratospheric services, embracing a refined style that permeates every element.
Fascinated as a child by Qantas’ history, perfect safety record and professional accomplishments (which over the years has included the longest hauls over water as well as the world’s longest distance flight), Travolta has visited Australia four times, starting in 1980, and has long appreciated the freshness of the country and the warm and genuine nature of its people. His affiliation with the airline began last year when he flew his ex-Qantas Boeing 707 to Australia to promote Swordfish, making “quite an impact” on the Qantas employees at the airport. This sparked his lifelong dream of being part of a respected international airline, inspiring a “Spirit of Friendship Tour” that will bring Travolta to 13 markets – Los Angeles, Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Paris, Rome, Frankfurt and New York – heralding the safety of flying and the value of rekindling cross-border relationships. The tour involves about 80 flying hours and covers more than 35,000 nautical miles (64,700 kilometres). Describing the sight of his own 707 wearing Qantas colors as “nothing short of thrilling,” Travolta hopes his projects with the airline will lead to an ongoing relationship. “Qantas epitomizes what a successful airline represents: from safety to achievement to service,” he says. “It’s completely impressive!”
Following his breakout role on the beloved mid-1970s TV series “Welcome Back, Kotter” and other acclaimed television projects such as “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble,” John Travolta launched a successful film career with such projects as Carrie, Saturday Night Fever (his first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor), Grease, Urban Cowboy, Blowout and Look Who’s Talking. He earned his second
Oscar nomination for the 1994 crime thriller Pulp Fiction, bringing him to a new level of stardom behind such films as Get Shorty (which garnered a Golden Globe win among four other nominations), Broken Arrow, Phenomenon, Michael, Face/Off, Primary Colors, A Civil Action, Battlefield Earth, The General’s Daughter and Swordfish. Travolta recently completed principal photography opposite Samuel Jackson on the thriller Basic, to be released in early 2003.

Benjamin Geza Affleck was born on August 15, 1972 in Berkeley, California, USA but raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. He was born to parents Tim Affleck, a social worker who is now divorced from Ben's mother Chris Affleck, a school teacher. Ben also has a younger brother, actor Casey Affleck, who was born in 1975. Ben wanted to be an actor ever since he could remember and his first acting experience was for a Burger King commercial, when he was *very* young. At 8 years old Ben was given his first steady acting job on the PBS mini-series "The Voyage of the Mimi" (1984). It was also at that age when Ben met his lifelong friend and fellow actor, Matt Damon. They played little league together and took drama classes together. Ben's teen years consisted of mainly TV movies and small television appearances including Hands of a Stranger (1987) (TV) and "The Second Voyage of the Mimi" (1988). He made his big introduction into feature films in 1993 when he was cast in Dazed and Confused (1993). After that he did mostly independent films like Kevin Smith's Mallrats (1995) and Chasing Amy (1997) which were great for Ben's career, receiving renowned appreciation for his works at the Sundance film festival. But the success he was having in independent films didn't last much longer and things got a little shaky for Ben. He was living in an apartment with his brother Casey and friend Matt, getting tired of being turned down for the big roles in films and being given the forgettable supporting ones. Since Matt was having the same trouble they decided to write their own script, where they could call all the shots. So, after finishing the script for Good Will Hunting (1997) they gave it to their agent Patrick Whitesell who showed it to a few Hollywood studios, finally being accepted by Castlerock. It was great news for the two but Castlerock wasn't willing to give Ben and Matt the control over the project they were hoping for. It was friend Kevin Smith who took it to the head of Miramax who bought the script giving Ben and Matt the control they wanted and in December of 1997 Good Will Hunting (1997) was released, making the two unknown actors famous. The film was nominated for 9 Academy Awards and won two, including Best Original Screenplay for Ben and Matt. The film marked Ben's breakthrough role, in which he was given for the first time the chance to choose roles instead of having to go through grueling auditions constantly. He chose such roles in the blockbusters Armageddon (1998), Shakespeare in Love (1998) and Pearl Harbor (2001). With these hits to his credit, Hollywood can't seem to get enough of Ben, with directors wanting him in their movies and companies wanting his screenplays. His inspirational story of hard work and amazing climb to the top has brought him what he deserves and Ben Affleck has shown no sign of slowing down

George Timothy Clooney (born May 6, 1961 in Lexington, Kentucky) is an Irish-American film and television actor, known for his former role in the long-running television drama ER (1994-99). He started his acting career in a similarly named sitcom, E/R and played a handyman on the series The Facts of Life. He has also appeared in a number of movies such as Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988), From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), One Fine Day (1996), Batman & Robin (1997), Out of Sight (1998), Three Kings (1999), The Perfect Storm (2000), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), Ocean's Eleven (2001), Welcome to Collinwood (2002), Intolerable Cruelty (2003), and Ocean's Twelve (2004), along with guest appearances on sitcoms such as Roseanne and Friends. He made his debut as a film director in the 2002 feature Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, an adaptation of the implausible autobiography of groundbreaking TV producer Chuck Barris.

He is the son of Cincinnati news anchor and TV host Nick Clooney, a nephew of actress and singer Rosemary Clooney, and a cousin of actor Miguel Ferrer; another cousin, Gabriel Ferrer, is an Episcopal priest, married to Debby Boone. He is a strong supporter of the Democratic Party.

He has battled a bad back which had caused him to cancel some promotional appearances, and made it impossible to find insurance cover to make a film. For this reason, he has put up his house for collateral and continues his professional career.

On July 8, 2005, news reports said that George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon will be working with Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber to design and build a new casino hotel in Las Vegas just off the Las Vegas Strip. Mr. Gerber is the one behind Green Valley Ranch resort and spa's Whiskey Sky, so he is already familiar with the Las Vegas entertainment market. Pitt has some design experience, having worked with Frank Gehry on a project in England. On August 29, 2005, Clooney officially announced his involvement with the Las Ramblas Resort project.

Footnote: It was recently announced that the Las Ramblas Resort project
has been scrubbed. The property it was going to be built on is now up
for sale.

Born John Christopher Depp in Owensboro, Kentucky, on June 9, 1963. Raised in Florida, he dropped out of school at age 15 in the hopes of becoming a rock musician. He fronted a series of garage bands including The Kids, which once opened for Iggy Pop. Depp got into acting after a visit to Los Angeles, California, with his former wife, Lori Anne Allison, who introduced him to actor Nicolas Cage. He made his film debut in A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984). In 1987, he shot to stardom when he replaced Jeff Yagher in the role of undercover cop Tommy Hanson in the popular TV series "21 Jump Street" (1987).

In 1990, after numerous roles in teen-oriented films, his first of a handful of great collaborations with director Tim Burton came about when he portrayed the title role in Edward Scissorhands (1990). Following the film's success, Depp carved a niche for himself as a serious, somewhat dark, idiosyncratic performer, consistently selecting roles that surprised critics and audiences alike. He continued to gain critical acclaim and increasing popularity by appearing in many features before re-joining with Burton in the lead role of Ed Wood (1994). In 1997, he played the undercover FBI agent in the factually-based film Donnie Brasco (1997), opposite Al Pacino; in 1998, he appeared in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), directed by Terry Gilliam; and then, in 1999, he appeared in the sci-fi/horror film The Astronaut's Wife (1999). The same year, he teamed up again with Burton in Sleepy Hollow (1999), brilliantly portraying Ichabod Crane.

Depp has played many characters in his career, including another factually-based character, Inspector Fred Abberline in From Hell (2001). He stole the show from screen greats such as Antonio Banderas in the finale to Robert Rodriguez's Mariachi trilogy, Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003), in the same year as starring in the marvelous family blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), playing a character that only the likes of Depp could pull off, Captain Jack Sparrow. Now, Depp is collaborating again with Tim Burton in a new screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005).

Apart from his on-screen life, Depp has dated several female celebrities off-screen, including failed engagements to Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder, and Kate Moss. He was married to Lori Anne Allison in 1983 but then divorced her in 1985. Currently, Depp is living with French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children: Lily-Rose Melody, born in 1999 and Jack, born in 2002.

Billy Ray Cyrus



Birth name
William Ray Cyrus

Date of birth
25 August 1961 in Flatwoods, Kentucky

Height
6' (1.83 m)

Spouse
Leticia Finley (28 December 1993 - present) 2 children
Cindy Cyrus (1987 - 1991) (divorced) 1 child

His father, Ron, is a politician in Kentucky. Ron divorced
Billy Ray's mother, Ruth Ann, when Billy Ray was 5.
Billy Ray's grandfather was a pentecostal preacher.

Children - Christopher, Destiny (nickname Miley), Braison,
Noah, Brandi and Trace

Enamored of baseball, Cyrus intended to become another
Johnny Bench as he grew up in Flatlands, KY. While attending
Georgetown College on a baseball scholarship, he bought a
guitar and decided immediately that athletics wasn't the proper
direction for his life. Instead, he formed a band called Sly Dog
with his brother and gave himself a ten-month deadline for
finding a place to play. One week prior to that cutoff date, the
group went to work as the house band for a club in Ironton, OH,
where they remained for two years. When a 1984 fire destroyed
the bar -- and Cyrus' equipment -- he moved to Los Angeles to
pursue his career. Eventually, he decided to return to Kentucky
and commuted regularly from there to Nashville in search of a
record deal. Grand Ole Opry star Del Reeves got Mercury Records
to take a look, and division head Harold Shedd signed him in the
summer of 1990. When his first album came out in mid-1992,
Cyrus -- with his good looks, sculpted body, and the infectious
"Achy, Breaky Heart" -- became an instant groundbreaking sensation. Spending five weeks at the top of the country charts, "Achy, Breaky
Heart" made his debut album, Some Gave All, a blockbuster success.
By the time it fell off the charts, it had sold over nine million copies
and spent 17 weeks on the top of the pop charts.

He was discovered by Mercury talent scouts in 1990 while opening
for a Reba McEntire concert in Louisville, Kentucky.

The original title of Achey Breaky Heart was "Don't tell my heart".
It changed after he started performing it and everyone kept asking
for that achey breaky song.

Plays the left-handed guitar

Born: 8 October 1970
Where: Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Awards: Won 1 Oscar, 1 Golden Globe
Height: 5' 10"
Filmography: The Complete List

It could be said that Matt Damon, along with his longtime buddy Ben Affleck, was THE surprise cinematic hit of the 1990s. After all, their feel-good smash, Good Will Hunting, seemed to come out of nowhere to win them both Oscars and set them up with starlet girlfriends like Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder, and regular multi-million-dollar paydays. It's a nice story, rags to riches, a meritocratic dream, with Affleck and Damon's lives mirroring that of their movie's hero.

Damon himself, though, might view his own career path a little differently. Whereas Affleck's parents had connections in the Biz, setting him up with onscreen work before he was 10, Damon had to work that little bit harder. Whereas, before Good Will Hunting, Affleck had appeared only in minor roles and dodgy TV movies, Damon had delivered several excellent performances in several excellent films - each of which had gone painfully unnoticed. Unlike Affleck, Damon had come within inches of fame and fortune. Indeed, he may well have made it even without Good Will Hunting - after all, he had just won the lead in a Francis Ford Coppola adaptation of a John Grisham novel. So Matt's success should, perhaps, not be considered such a shock.

He was born Matthew Paige Damon on October 8th, 1970, in the Cambridge area of Boston, Massachusetts. His father, Kent, was an investment banker and tax preparer, while his mother, Nancy Carlsson-Paige (hence the middle name) was Professor of Education at Lesley College, specialising in early education. Matt has one brother, Kyle, three years his senior and now a sculptor.

For the first two years of his life, Matt lived in the seriously expensive Newton district of Boston. When he was 2, though, his parents divorced and he moved, with Nancy, to nearby Cambridge. This area, where Harvard is situated, was also well-to-do, but not QUITE as rich as Newton. Nancy's plan was for Matt and Kyle to be well-provided-for, but not shut away from the real world. Thus one neighbour was Howard Zinn, author of A People's History Of The United States, while opposite Chez Matt was a halfway house

KURT RUSSELL


Date of birth 17 March 1951 in Springfield, Massachusetts

A mid-range star of big-budget action films and the occasional comedy, Kurt Russell is among the few to make the successful transition from child star to successful adult actor. As a youth, Russell aspired to follow the footsteps of his father, Bing Russell, who, in addition to being a big league baseball player, was also an actor (he was perhaps best known for his role as the sheriff on the TV Western Bonanza). That his heroes Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris did the same thing only strengthened Russell's resolve to have both a baseball and acting career.

He first broke into acting on television, starring in the series The Travels of Jamie McPheeters, and made his film debut playing the boy who kicks Elvis in the 1963 Elvis Presley vehicle It Happened at the World's Fair. After signing a ten-year contract with Disney, Russell got his big break as a juvenile actor in 1966, starring opposite Fred MacMurray in Disney's live-action feature Follow Me Boys! His association with the studio lasted through 1975, and produced such comedic family movies as The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit (1968), The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969), The Barefoot Executive (1971), and The Strongest Man in the World (1975). The last film marked Russell's final collaboration with Disney, aside from his voicing the character of Copper in the studio's The Fox and the Hound (1981). Still an avid baseball enthusiast during those years, Russell nurtured his dreams of becoming a professional ball player until a shoulder injury permanently changed his plans.

After ending his association with Disney, Russell disappeared from features -- he did, however, appear in a few television movies -- until playing the title role in Elvis, John Carpenter's made-for-television biopic. His next role as a sleazy used car salesman in Robert Zemeckis' hilariously caustic Used Cars (1980) allowed him to counter his wholesome, all-American nice guy image, and proved that he was an actor of untapped range. Director Carpenter recognized this and cast Russell as mercenary Snake Plissken in his brooding sci-fi/action film Escape From New York (1981), and then as a scientist in the Antarctic in his chilling 1982 remake of The Thing. Realizing that his characters were larger than life, Russell typically played them with his tongue ever so slightly in his cheek.

In 1983, however, he moved to serious drama, playing opposite Cher and Meryl Streep in Silkwood. The success of that film helped him break into a more mainstream arena, and he was later able to win praise for his dramatic work in such films as Swing Shift (1984), Tequila Sunrise (1988), and Winter People (1989). However, it is with his performances in action films that Russell remains most widely associated. He has appeared in a number of such films, all of disparate quality. Some of Russell's more memorable projects include Big Trouble in Little China (1986), Tango and Cash (1989), Backdraft (1991), Tombstone (1993), and Executive Decision (1996). In 1996, he reprised his Snake Plissken character for Carpenter's Escape From L.A. The following year, he starred opposite Kathleen Quinlan in the revenge thriller Breakdown before returning to the sci-fi/action realm with Soldier in 1998. It would be two years before movie-going audiences would again catch a glimpse of Russell, though with his roles in 2000 Miles to Graceland (again carrying on the Elvis associations that have haunted his career) and Cameron Crowe's Vanilla Sky, the versatile actor proved that he was still very much on the scene. Is some of Russell's later day roles had stressed the /action angle a bit more than the more /dramatic aspects of the stories, the release of Dark Blue in 2003 combined both with Russell cast as a volitile police officer tracking a killer against the backdrop of the 1992 L.A. riots. Some of Russell's fame comes from his status as half of one of Hollywood's most famous couples. The long-time partner of Goldie Hawn and father of one of her children, he has appeared with Hawn in Swing Shift and Overboard (1987).
