Nowadays, we often admire the beauty of handsome actors like Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney. The reason is simple, one of the many requirements of an actor is having an attractive face. I don’t mean you won’t have any success if you don’t have looks, but it’ll be quite a challenge. However, there are handsome men out there that have nothing to do with Hollywood. Why? Simply because they have other dreams to follow, just like us.
What does this tell us? It means that handsome men have existed throughout centuries, not just now. Good-looking lads have captured the hearts of many women, both in the past and the present. It’s no surprise that your grandma always brags about how handsome your grandpa was when he was young. Your grandma’s probably telling the truth. Try to look at your grandpa’s old photograph, and you might be in for a surprise.
Still don’t believe me? See these photos of 23 charming men from the previous century to see for yourself.
