During AOL’s What To Watch session at SXSW now, four decades later, former hairy heartthrob Burt Reynolds says he regrets posing for the 1972 Cosmopolitan nearly nude centerfold that sold over 1.5 million copies and helped cement both Cosmo and Reynolds’ name in popular culture. (And also became masturbation fodder for generations of gay men and women. Don’t be a prude. You know its true.)
Reynolds revealed that he thinks he did the naked shoot because he didn’t want people to think he was afraid to do it. “The only rules I had… I wanted a lot of drinks before. I have to be truthful, I was totally zonkered when I did the picture. That stupid smile, that’s what it is you know.”
On the way to the photo shoot, I stopped for two quarts of vodka and finished one before we got to the studio, which was freezing cold (bad for a naked man’s self-esteem).
The famed Francesco Scavullo photographed me on a bearskin rug. He took hundreds of shots: with a hat in front of my … tallywacker, with a dog in front of it, with my hand in front of it. (If I was trying to prove something, why would I cover it up with my hand? I have very small hands.) They promised to burn the outtakes and give me the negatives
Reynolds was the first male nude “legitimate” centerfold in publishing.
It wasn’t until later that Reynolds found out that Helen Gurley Brown, the longtime editor of Cosmopolitan and author of the best-selling book Sex and the Single Girl had asked Paul Newmanto do it first.
Christophe Dominici (born May 20, 1972) is a former French rugby union footballer of Italian origin. He played wing for Stade Français and France. He has been a coach with Stade Français since the start of the 2008/9 season and a board member since 2009/10 season’s
Not tall: at just 1.72m (5′ 7”) Domi but sure makes up what he lacks in height in other places. As a kid, he knew that it would be hard for him to join a good team because of his stature. But what he lacked in height, he had in willingness to succeed. He knows when to attack and soon became one of the best European players.
Domi has never shied away from showing off and does so A LOT. And let’s just say that he certainly no reason to be shy, down there which is good for us!
Square jaw, late 30’s, handsome. hairy, hung, and an excellent sportsmen Dominici has it all.
