I will like to start a serie of post, called inspiration. These posts will be about why I think a man should be like. I've always been wondering about the position of a man in society. We should be strong but tender, joyful but not to much, because then you ''loose your masculinity''. Being a man is easy, being a good one is almost impossible. So here are the men that I think figured out the oh so poetic task of being a man.
"Being a good actor isn't easy. Being a man is even harder. I want to be both before I'm done."
What do James Franco, Robert Pattison and every bad ass looking guy since the 50's have in common. James Dean. He is the original bad ass, live fast die young, rebel-without-a-cause, kind of guy. Except his bad-assness, he was a very poetic and artistic man. Obviously an actor, but also interested in photography (on both side of the camera), he had as many side to his personality, as girl chasing him in the streets. A depressive artist that always got criticized for people an ass hole, this anti social behaviour is what made him so mysterious for every young girl and boy since the 50's (he died in 1955 at the age of 24 in a mysterious car accident, wich boosted his fame).
Why do every great man needs a bit of James Dean? Well, first of all, major sexiness. Second of all, it brings you the edge to not only be attractive for women, but also in business. When a man is adventurous, out of the box, with a look in his eyes so killer it makes Satan jealous, it makes you way more attractive for a compagny, and for a raise. We don't notice it often, but what a woman is looking for in a man, is not so different for what a boss is looking for in his male-employees.
