Film legend Peter O'Toole dies at the age of 81 | Mail Online

Lawrence of Arabia has always been one of my favorite films. I also loved the Lion In Winter, where he played Henry II, where he starred opposite Katharine Hepburn. There have been other roles over the years but those are the 2 that stand out the most for me.

RIP

I'm somewhat chagrined but I thought he'd passed a few years ago.

He holds the record for the most Oscar actor nominations without a win.

And he was born either in Connemara, County Galway, or Leeds, West Yorkshire, which are 419 miles apart. Nobody seems to know for sure, for some reason.

If anyone had thought to ask his mother, she may have had an inkling!

It's not tastful but over the years he has been reported dead and I was hoping that this was another hoax and he was still alive. He was a great actor and his movies will stand the test of time. Peter O'Toole I will miss the perfect actor in you R.I.P.

Men aren't beautiful. If they are good looking, they are handsome.

Sometimes they are not handsome they are just beautiful, like John Kennedy Jr was beautiful. Handsome/good looking would indicate an interest in him sexually, beautiful is a whole other category. So far that makes O'Toole only the second man I thought was beautiful.

Now and then one comes along that is just down right pretty, they don't rate even another look from me. Tony Curtis was pretty.

I'm not sure if you know this or not, but Thomas Kinkade passed away a little while ago as well. He was quite young, and I enjoyed working on jigsaw puzzles that used his paintings as the puzzle.

May both he and Peter O'Toole rest in peace.

Once celebrities step out of the limelight, it is more difficult to know for sure.
