With a film and television career spanning more than five decades, George Hamilton is a Hollywood legend. In addition to charming audiences in his more than 100 acting roles, Hamilton is also known for his suave off-screen persona and, of course, his famous tan. So, when the 74-year-old star sat down with Oprah for an interview on "Oprah: Where Are They Now?", she had to ask about the origins of Hamilton's perpetually bronzed complexion. Watch a preview of the episode.
It all goes back to his teen years, Hamilton explains. Before he attended high school in Florida, Hamilton vacationed in the sunny southern state one summer. That's when he got the tan that would later become part of his signature look.
