5 Theatre Actors That Have Owned Rolexes
Not only do film actors and sports stars wear Rolexes but also those who tread the boards both in the West End and on Broadway. Millions of people own Rolexes, including the following theatre actors:
Known for his tough-guy persona in such roles as Michael Corleone in ‘The Godfather’ and as Lefty in ‘Donnie Brasco’, Al Pacino has had many theatrical parts. Having performed on Broadway in the 1960s, Pacino has returned to the theatre since then. Pacino has won many awards for his stage roles which have boosted his CV further. He has worn the Rolex Submariner not just whilst promoting his films but also when watching plays.
A hugely popular actor who starred in ‘The Sopranos’ and many movies such as ‘In the Loop’, James Gandolfini also appeared on stage. In 2009, Gandolfini starred on Broadway alongside Jeff Daniels in ‘God of Carnage’. Gandolfini was regularly photographed at media events wearing a Rolex watch. In fact, many actors in ‘The Sopranos’ wore Rolexes – Gandolfini’s character sported a Day-Date.
A much-loved actor, Stephen Fry is closely associated with Hugh Laurie because of their TV show ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’. Stephen Fry has also appeared in many movies. Outside of his TV and film projects, Stephen Fry has acted on stage. In September 2012, Stephen Fry performed in ‘Twelfth Night’ at the Globe Theatre which earned him rave reviews. He has also worn Rolexes, such as during the mid-1980s. Since then, Stephen Fry has owned other Rolex watches. When wanting to sell Rolex watches, such as the Submariner that he is known to have worn, there can be considerable interest because of Stephen Fry’s popularity.
Before finding fame as a major Hollywood celebrity in the 1960s in such roles as Benjamin Braddock in ‘The Graduate’ and ‘Midnight Cowboy’, Dustin Hoffman starred in many theatre productions. Appearing alongside Gene Hackman, who he shared an apartment with at the time, Dustin Hoffman has since starred in other stage plays. Many of his on-screen characters have worn Rolex watches, such as Thomas Levy in ‘Marathon Man’. Hoffman has also worn the GMT Master in his spare time. As Hoffman continues to act in movies and stage plays, his characters are bound to wear Rolex watches. If not, photographs of him wearing the GMT Master will continue to appear in the media, largely because he is an A-List celebrity.
Michael Redgrave’s daughter, Vanessa Redgrave has appeared extensively on stage. Making her West End debut in the late-1950s, Vanessa Redgrave has performed in many Shakespearian roles. As her name is instantly recognisable, the fact that she has worn the Rolex Submariner has helped to promote the luxury watch manufacturer further. When wanting to sell Rolex watches, such as the Submariner, a fan of her movies or stage roles could buy it. As Redgrave continues to be celebrated for her roles, a similar Submariner model can sell for a handsome sum.
