    No. He was ugly when young but in old age wrinkles covered up his plain face and made it more interesting. That's why he started out as a Shakespearean actor before going to Hollywood.

    I found him extremely attractive from his late teens until his death.

    He had a fabulous face!

    Yes, he was extraordinarily good looking in his youth - what used to be called a matinee idol.

    Quentin, don't be ridiculous. "wrinkles covered his plain face" indeed!

    Sure. Not tremendously good-looking, but good-looking enough, definitely not bad-looking. Like with a lot of people, his extraordinary talent and charisma went a long way to make him more attractive than one might expect by just looking at a picture of him knowing nothing about him. That said, I now find him unattractive because of all that has come to light about what a tyrant he was and how brutally he treated his fellow actors and, most especially, his fellow actresses. Maggie Smith, for example, said that he was physically abuse, that he would out of the blue haul off and slap her hard if she had delivered a line wrong in rehearsal, and that he was known for physically abusing his female costars.
