many in ancient Rome reached the 70's with quite a few written accounts of people dieing at 78 though those were upper class people with a much better diet than the plebs
only a few years lower than the modern average

Wow, I would not think this guy would get the reactions it did. I saw this and I thought he was hot and wanted him and his abs. He seems pretty nice and acted on impulse in front of the camera.

Facking facks, I've seen this guy at 'California Chicken Cafe' and he's hotter in person!

I'll take a hot, chubby, hairy BEAR any day instead of these gym bunnies.

I agree with those who think his abs are overdone. To keep a body like that you'd have become a slave to the gym and a person like that is obviously a narcissist who'd never have time for you unless you devoted yourself to revolve around his universe.

I'm with GALORE way up at the top -- this dude's stomach is horrifying and gross. Give me a guy who reads books, keeps up with politics and eats a cheeseburger now and then to this grotesque insect exoskeleton look any day. Ugh.

I have to agree with PeterParker on this one. I lived on the Beach (as in Miami Beach) during the "Pioneer Days", when you couldn't throw a cat without hitting a fit, over-ripped guy. I worked at Paragon, the Marlin, and the Palace, so I saw their diets, which were not as healthy as the actor/model claims.
I remember vividly the days where wonderful, beautiful, kind, and fit people were dying en masse. NYC was also reeling because this was when it was only AZT was the only hope for survival (it wasn't), and suddenly every gay man were suddenly becoming what I would consider fit and sexy, due to genetics with a small side of gym and something else, ahem.
These were really frightening times for so many people I cared for deeply. It's still difficult to truly think about the number of people that I know are dying far too young to this day. Here I was, skinny but relatively fit, and I just didn't get it.
Then I discovered the reason from a friend (RIP) that was instructed by his doctor after so many close calls and pacing the ward at Mt Sinai, yet by miracle he would pass, told him what to do-take steroids because it would reverse the 'AIDS wasting' and build some strength to fight whatever battle would ensue. He did, but like most the amount became OTT, and suddenly he had gained massive amounts of weight and beefed up huge in a very short time.
And that turned into a pressure that was rough to say no to, as skinny became the new sick, and the unrealistically huge was considered healthy. And for now we have a variety of medicines that are knocking out viral loads to nil and T-cells up to a normal range.
Regrettably this look and abusing an aid to add some strength and fighting the many battles, and there was an Achilles' heel: liver damage. Without a liver you will die.
I am so blessed that there are many friends that I love and are friends-no, they are more than friends because they are a part of me, and part of my chosen family. And some are pulling back from steroids and keeping medicine adherence. We are still losing some due to the abuses of a good thing, but I am seeing family in them, because some have that genetic code of hotness, and some are just as wonderful as the day I met them.
I'm not kidding myself here. I developed a chronic set of neurological disorders a few years back which has no cure, and I'm happy to sat that whether they are huge or not, fit or looking older does not matter to me. Losing a relationship because of this hurt, but I have my family of friends, and that, dear friends, is the answer to real beauty.

There are a few grammatical errors in my previous note. I shake and can only use one hand. This was not too long ago: http://youtu.be/PtsKO048124
