Pin up stars

15 posts in this topic

According to a definition I found online, a pin-up is "a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture."

I suppose a lot of actors and actresses fit this description. Yes?

Sterling Hayden started as model and then became a movie star.

I did a search on "pin up male actor" and this image came up. I think it's the nicest, handsomest photo I have ever seen of Bogart. Must have been taken in the mid-30s.

British actor Ned Porteous, from the soap Emmerdale. He joined the show last September and has been nominated for an award as Best Male Newcomer (though he previously had a short-term role on another soap).

He was a true male pin up star- his appeal were based on his perfect looks

You tube is full of male pin up stars- like this Gay Cuban-American

Yes, but what else can they do (besides take pictures of themselves)...? LOL
