The Most Interesting Actor in the World

In the ad campaign for Dos Equis beer, 72-year-old Jonathon Goldsmith plays "the most interesting man in the world," whose blood smells like cologne, and who sharks named a week after.
Goldsmith is not this man. Still, he has more in common with him than you do. A montage of highlights from the real life of Jonathan Goldsmith might include (had there been cameras present) footage of him rescuing a stranded climber on Mt. Whitney, saving a drowning girl in Malibu, sailing the high seas with his friend Fernando Lamas (the inspiration for his Interesting persona and, according to Goldsmith, “the greatest swordsman who ever lived in Hollywood”), and starting a successful network marketing business (“I was a hustler, a very good hustler”), which, for a while, anyway, enabled him to flee Hollywood for an estate in the Sierras. Among the outtakes might be glimpses of his stint as a waterless-car-wash entrepreneur. “I love the old philosophers,” he said. “I have a large library. I am not a die-hard sports fan. I love to cut wood."

Goldsmith lives on his sailboat with his wife, who is also his agent. Read more about this interesting man who used to intercept Warren Beatty's dates at the New Yorker. Link -via The Daily What
