For as long as there has been Hollywood, there have been Hollywood heart throbs. The generations all have their own; from Rock Hudson and James Dean, to John Travolta and Mel Gibson. Let's take a look back at some of the hunks of Hollywood through the years.
1. Richard Gere
Richard Gere caught his first big break in 1980 when he starred in the box-office hit, American Gigolo. Women loved him and he became a sex symbol for the 80s. Most of the younger generation will remember him from his role alongside Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.
2. Sir Ian McKellen
Before he was Magneto (X-Men) or Gandalf (Lord of the Rings) he was a classically-trained theater actor who had women (and even some men) turning their heads when he walked by them in public. Age has caught up to the icon, but once he was the "day dream" of women everywhere.
3. John Travolta
The times, they have changed. But once upon a time John Travolta was the king of Hollywood. Every woman wanted him, and every man wanted to be him. Grease and Saturday Night Fever put this star on the map, and his poster up on walls across the country.
