They were the the heartthrobs of yesteryear. They lit up the silver screen with their chiseled physiques, dazzling smiles and they oozed charm and sex appeal.

A generation of women would flock to their movies and sigh in the dark for two hours, looking up adoringly at the silver screen at these dashing heroes. But as time marched on, these matinee idols might now be sporting grey hair and looking a bit slack around the waistline. And you might console yourself that least you will always have those movies that captured them at their youthful best. But have you seen their offspring?
