These days, Nick Nolte is perhaps best known for portraying tough-talking characters – but he was once a huge sex symbol of his time.
Today, the gifted and talented actor has turned 82 years, and I must say that he’s pretty unrecognizable from his 1970s heartthrob days.
I have a ton of respect for the remarkable talent of Nick Nolte – he’s definitely one of the greatest actors in American cinema history.
I like how his facial features, his sturdy, square jaw structure, his angulus orbital bones and forehead, and the wild hair floating and growing out of control make him look like a powerful, almost barbaric character in a Shakespeare play.
His versatility as an actor, the intensity and the pain behind his eyes – that’s what makes his art so compelling. Nick always gives raw and honest acting performances, and if we look at his credentials, it’s evident that many of us appreciate his acting skills.
In 1991, Nolte won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama. He was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 1991 film The Prince of Tides.
