George Hamilton is an actor who is better known for his off-screen persona: a suave, well-dressed escort of beautiful women. He is particularly famous for his eternal golden-brown tan, which over the years has become something of a pop culture inside joke. His films have included All the Fine Young Cannibals (1960, with Natalie Wood), Evel (1971, as daredevil Evel Knievel) and Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Part III (1990). In the 1990s Hamilton opened a chain of upscale cigar bars and coffee clubs. His toe-tapping appearance as a competitor on Dancing With the Stars 2 in 2006 brought him a fresh round of applause, and in 2009 he appeared on the British series I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!
Extra credit: The winner of the original Dancin' With the Stars in 2005 was actress Kelly Monaco... Hamilton's former wife Alana (1972-76) was later married to rock star Rod Stewart... Hamilton is not related to country music star George Hamilton IV... He played newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst in the 1997 film Rough Riders, and Santa Claus in the 2004 TV movie Too Cool for Christmas.
