In an ideal world, my favourite kind of hero would be powerful, magnetic, comfortable in his own skin, unique, brave, compassionate without being wimpy, kind without being sugary, passionate, etc.
In the movies, the type of actor I'm talking about is Steve McQueen. He doesn't conform, he's a bit of a bad boy, you know he wouldn't wimp out of something. The king of cool.
I can't find anyone to compare with him nowadays but other actors I love to watch on the big screen are Matthew McConnaughey and Colin farrell.
There's just something about these three that really 'do it' for me.
What's your kind of hero like?
