Renaissance Man Of The Week: STEVE McQUEEN

Terrence Steven "Steve" McQueen (March 24, 1930 – November 7, 1980) was an American movie actor, nicknamed "The King of Cool". After appearing in the 1974 film The Towering Inferno, he became the highest paid movie star in the world.

McQueen was offered the lead role in Breakfast at Tiffany's but was unable to accept due to another movie contract. McQueen served as one of the pallbearers at Bruce Lee's funeral in 1973. After Chuck Norris taught McQueen's son Taekwondo, he is the person credited with persuading a young Chuck Norris to take acting lessons. McQueen was also known for his prolific drug use and was an everyday marijuana smoker.

It's not just clothes that give a man style -- it's the body language, the attitude, and perhaps the affection of a beautiful woman that can often make a look complete. At home with his first wife, Neile Adams. Los Angeles, CA, 1963. Take notes, Steve McQueen was fly.
