20 Heartthrobs from the Golden Age of Hollywood
Everyone likes an every-man — and William Holden was no exception
William Holden drew interest for his every-man roles, and for his “handsome face and easy, masculine manner [that] made him the quintessential American in many movies,” according to the LA Times.
He’s well known for his performances in the film noir “Sunset Boulevard” (1950) and “Stalag 17” (1953). Though Holden was married for a good portion of his professional life, he reportedly had many extramarital affairs, including one with Audrey Hepburn on the set of 1954’s “Sabrina.”
