Steve McQueen

Steve McQueen

 

Born Terrence Steven McQueen in 1930 in Slater, Missouri. By 1970 Steve McQueen was arguably the most popular film actor in the world, but his off-screen life was a mess.

 

His stormy marriage to actress Neile Adams ended on the set of Le Mans when he told her that women were “coming from all over the world” to sleep with him. His second wife, Ali McGraw, who also divorced him, said he was semi-literate and was unable to spell the word “blue”.

 

At the height of his fame he was top of Charles Manson’s death list, was filmed by the FBI attending an orgy, and was taught martial arts by Bruce Lee. He died in 1980 while undergoing surgery for cancer. His most memorable performance for many remains that of The Great Escape (1963).

 

Born: 7 November 1980 in Beech Grove, Indiana, USA.
Died: 24 March 1930
