  8. Montgomery Clift 1. Height 5' 10" (1.78 m) 2. 1995: Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#29). 3. The release of Red River (1948) made him an overnight sensation and instant star. He embodied a new type of man on screen, the beautiful, sensual and vulnerable man that seemed to appeal to women and men alike. After A Place in the Sun (1951) came out he was Hollywood's hottest male star and adored by millions. He looked incredible and was a fine actor, a rare combination. His only rival in this regard during the next few years was Marlon Brando, whose career turned out to be more stable and successful in the end. Clift's mental problems prevented him from staying at the top, as his drinking and drug problem began to affect his acting and bankability. The loss of his dashing looks in a well publicized road accident during the filming of Raintree County (1957) didn't help, either. What followed could be described as the longest suicide in show-business history. 4. In the James Kirkwood novel "Hit Me With A Rainbow", early on the lead character is told that he resembles Montgomery Clift. He reflects that this has been happening often and surmises is it due to Clift's recent death. 5.

Voted for Republican Thomas E. Dewey in the 1948 presidential election, but later actively campaigned for Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson in the 1952 presidential election - much to the annoyance of his father. 7. Marilyn Monroe described him as "the only person I know who is in worse shape than I am."

She left her just-claimed Oscar for Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) on the back of a toilet during the 1979 festivities. 5. Tennessee Williams wanted her for a film version of "A Streetcar Named Desire" in the 1980s. When Streep proved unavailable, the project was refashioned for television and the role of Blanche given to Ann-Margret. 6. According to Katharine Hepburn's official biographer A. Scott Berg, Meryl Streep was her least favorite modern actress on screen: "Click, click, click," she said, referring to the wheels turning inside Streep's head. 7. Robert De Niro said she is his favorite actress to work with. 8. Has named her favorite actresses working today as Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Dame Helen Mirren, and Nicole Kidman. 9.

In the 1970s, when Bowie was changing his appearance and style with every album, Owen would re-dye his hair whatever color Bowie's was at the time. 3. Admitted in a Newsweek interview to promote The International (2009/I) that he has considered submitting false trivia about himself ("I once talked to someone about putting something on IMDB") and was surprised at how seriously people took it. In the same interview he also claimed he doesn't eat biscuits because 'He-men don't need biscuits.'. 4. Was named Empire Magazines #25 in the list of 100 Sexiest Stars(2007). 5. When his Beyond Borders (2003) co-star Angelina Jolie told him he looked sexy, she says, he "fell over laughing". Edited by: timothy17 on Jun 19, 2010 12:38 AM
