This picture of Steve McQueen taken in 1963 and courtesy of Life.com (tick) does, in fact, dispel many a myth. It also disproves a few things too.
Mostly and primarily and a), b) and certainly d), that movie stars on the brinkety-brink of super-duper-stardom in the 1960s – a time that historians currently think came between the 1970s and the War of the Roses – also went commando in loose-fitting tracksuit bottoms in order to titillate the gays. It’s the ‘mo come-hither, and it’s not to be sniffed at.
Wait until you see this next one. Steve McQueen is such a cock-tease. Which just goes to show, really. It really does.
