9 Photos That Will Change The Way You See James Dean
One word: leotard.
This is probably the first image that comes to mind when you imagine James Dean: As Jim Stark, the iconic face of teenage disillusionment, in Rebel Without a Cause.
The talented actor was handsome...
...and, of course, brooding.
But, could you imagine him as a dapper kid?
How about as a star high school basketball player?
But basketball wasn't his only athletic pursuit, he also practiced ballet.
He also liked to clown around with his friends, like Marlon Brando.
And also his co-stars, like Rebel Without a Cause's Sal Mineo
...and his Giant co-star Elizabeth Taylor.
He liked to do silly things while signing autographs!
He was no stranger to making funny faces for the camera.
And like all of us, he sometimes talked on the phone while going to the bathroom.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
