For Warren Beatty I would add his gorgeous physique in his twenties through to his fifties. 6'2", broad shoulders, quite muscular, long legs. His hair was also one of his main points of attraction. Thick, curly, it looked good on him short and long. They don't make them like him anymore!

Yes. One of the things I admire about Beatty is his athletic physique. And his hairstyle (although I'm not a fan of his hairdo during the '70s-'80s).

Beatty - every woman's (and perhaps some men's) dream guy.
