Hollywood's Leading Lads
We came across this photo of Hollywood’s leading men. While the photo is nice and all, we were more curious about how and why a handful of the biggest movie stars on the planet were all in one place together. Was it for an ensemble movie we couldn’t think of? Perhaps a publicity photo ahead of an awards ceremony?
Well it took a bit of sleuthing, but we got to the bottom of it! Turns out this photo is a cropped and edited version of the 2003 fold-out Vanity Fair titled, ‘The 2003 Hollywood Issue.”
In addition to Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Jack Nicholson, and Brad Pitt, the rest of the fold-out includes Edward Norton, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Cheadle, Hugh Grant, Dennis Quaid, Ewan McGregor, and Matt Damon.
Both the edited and original photo are included below.
