- Let's make a sex symbol.(giggles)I'm just gonna put this there.- What people think makes a sexy manhas changed a lot over the past 100 years.- We are going to be recreating photos of the mostrevolutionary male sex symbols,- Throughout history.- But there are only four of us,so we're gonna get a little help from some of our friends.- Sex symbols, you're looking at one.- No well, you will be,because that's what we're doing today.- I mean I guess my great-grandmothermight have thought that he was steamy,but she died.I'll be recreating Rudolph Valentino."Who's that?" You ask.Well, so did I.He is a film star in the 1920s,and he is the original Latin Lover.He played an Arab lead characterbecause as an Italian-American he was the exotic one.The most popular male sex icon was gettingall this criticism for being effeminate.He was just beautiful all around.I feel like this is a theme we're gonna see later.People are scared of what's too sexy.I'm not supposed to be talking, am I?- No, you're a silent film star.(swing music)He didn't even open his mouthand there was 100,000 people at his funeral.Would that happen today if Justin Bieber died?He might get 100,000 likes on a RIP Bieber photo.I still have that to live up to.- So he was so adored that Hitler wanted him as a pet.Which is, I guess, I would take as a compliment.I'm delighted to play the King of Hollywood.Especially because it's thisold school funny sort of masculine.He's always smiling and kind of winking.Even in "Gone with the Wind" they're like,"What do you think, Rhett?" And he's like,"I don't know, if we can't defeat the North,we don't have enough cannons."He's almost like a proto Clooney,in that he was a silver fox at a very young age.He's just an old man who has giant earsand a weird cat-like grin.So if I'm gonna be a sexy man,I wanna be the weirdest-looking sexy man I can possibly be.[imitating Gable] Hello, my daughter died on a pony.Al these actors from back in the day,they were all soldiers,they were laying their lives on the line.[imitating Gable] We don't have enough cannons.Nowadays, no one comes to mind.I don't think Channing Tatum is out there.I look like a weirdo by today's standards,but that's okay.I feel the sexiest I've ever felt.- The real trick is, though, not wearing anythingunder the trench coat.
That makes it easier to have sex with 1,000 women.I am going to be Humphrey Bogart.Humphrey is very serious and very stoic.If you look back at the acting in all those old films,it's very over-the-top, but he was very grounded.
