Sexy Men. Robert Redford vs Leonardo DiCaprio. Yareah Magazine has just published an article about The Great Gatsby novel by Scott Fitzgerald. A great novel published in 1925, which has deserves movies.
In 1974, the director Jack Clayton filmed an unforgettable Great Gatsby. Then, Jay Gatsby was played by Robert Redford, the sexiest man in the world at that moment. Redford starred together with Mia Farrow, Sam Waterston, Bruce Dern, Karen Black, Scott Wilson, and Lois Chiles). So cute with those white suites and hats! What a romantic old movie!
This year, a musical about Gatsby has been released. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, the role of the main character of the novel (our Jay) has been for Leonardo DiCaprio. He stars with Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays a little more energetic than Redford. His character is full of force and even Violence, but we still see a handsome Jay Gatsby, in love with the flighty Daisy Buchanan. Less clear suites and more lavish settings. Anyway, Leonardo is mysterious and sexy. We love him.
Then, now is your moment. Who do you prefer? Who is the sexiest? Robert Redford or Leonardo DiCaprio? What is more: if you can choose an actor to play the role of Jay Gatsby, who would you choose?
The successful novel The Great Gatsby has been described as the icon of the American Dream: a new world full of decadent social behaviors, love, violence, money, prohibition and jazz. The novel and the movies are placed in the fictional town of West Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. There, a rich and handsome Jay is trying to regain the love of his life.
