Jeff Goldblum may have made his debut in the original Death WIsh, but his role of Seth Brundle in The Fly turned the actor into a real movie star. It also marked Goldblum as a quirky sex symbol, of sorts. He sat down with Yahoo! and talked some about the past role.
“I had my flowy locks at that point,” Goldblum recalls. “If anything is attractive, at least for me, it is somebody who is passionate and interested in something, and focused on something, and has some brainpower too, and that character is supposed to be kind of a smarty pants. So, you know, maybe that was attractive.”
He adds, “And of course, once I get mashed up with the fly DNA, I’m given to great power, volatile storms and a sexuality, a fevered unquenchable sexuality.”
Also talking a little about the Oscar win, he says, “Chris Walas won the Oscar for that, yes. And Stephan Dupuis, for five hours, put me in a dentist’s chair and applied that thing,” Goldblum remembered. “And then another hour after we were done… ya know, rub rub rub… took it off. Kinda squeezed on this suit… rubbery suit… so I look all boily… misshapen. And then prosthetics.”
“It’s not the most comfortable thing but it wasn’t bad. It was a fun thing to do.”
Ontd, do you find anything unconventionally sexy?
