He looks like he was chiseled from a block of mahogany. Kudos to them both! Let's be very clear about one thing: The more outrageous turn comes from a bouffant and very tough! He and Welch posed for provocative still photos as part of the push. By now, Jim was receiving top-billing in his films, though many people will be surprised to know that at one point he was popular enough to rece ive that distinction over both Burt Reynolds and Raquel Welch! So if you would like one or a signed photo, let me know with an address I can send it to.

R23 no, this is the shot that appeared in Playgirl that was cut right above the pubes. I wasn't old enough to understand public opinion at the time. Prior to this, minorities had limited visibility in mainstream films, but now this sector was being catered to, albeit in a way that many people found exploitive, hence the genre Blaxploitation. According to Pitt, the pics had been snapped by a trespassing paparazzo while he was on a romantic getaway in the French West Indies with then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow. I wish that Playgirl had existed then. Click on the poster for a bigger, better view of the artwork. R23 as for R18, here's another photo from that shoot.
