And, speaking as a Priscilla basher , I never question her "love" for the iconic Elvis. She's always first in line in interviews to describe his impossible good looks, his legendary kindness and generosity etc.
However, in her book (and for instance a subsequent interview on British TV with Terry Wogan in which he had her pinned within two minutes as her verbal answers seemed to contradict what she had written) she often was contradictory about Elvis and her relationship, and her actions since the divorce often prove the reason for her continued interest in promoting Elvis the icon, the legend, as purely self serving first.
I'll never stop repeating her interviews from 1976 in which she clearly distanced herself from the Presley name and wanted to be known as Priscilla Beaulieu. Shortly after he died shen became Beaulieu hyphen Presley and the longer he was dead the more she became solely Presley again.
Poor Marco must have a very secure feeling of self esteem to still be in a three way relationship with a long gone and dead man!
I totally agree Elvis was the most beautiful (handsome does not suffice to describe him) human being, and certainly man I have ever seen. Considering the fact that I, nor any other one of us, have actually seen the entire world population, however, we still have to consider the fact that maybe somewhere in some poor, small, forgotten town in nowhereland on this planet, there may be an even better looking guy whom we'll never know about as he may lack the talent to bring him up and out from the obscurity of poverty that he may be living in nowOriginally Posted by Cryogenic
That said, Elvis is not the only person in showbiz who was not exactly photogenic as compared to what he looked like in real life, face to face. I know from several other stars, both male and female, that such comments were - rightly so - made, that photos or screen appearances did not do them justice compared to what they look like in the flesh.
Indeed Christopher Reeve in his Superman days was a spectacular specimen of a man. His impressive physique at 6'5", 200 pounds helped a lot in completing that gorgeous image, too However, what was off in Christopher I always found, was the fact that he had such thin lips.Originally Posted by Cryogenic
I'm extremely sad about what happened to Christopher and that he had to die so young after so many years of hardship. Still, had that horrible accident not happened to him, his lips would have been the first thing that would have ruined his looks, as lips only get smaller with age and in his case would have virtually disappeared
