Never Say Die: 17 Beloved Pop-Culture Immortals
11. Laurence Olivier in Clash of the Titans (1981)
It had to suck to be Laurence Olivier. Sure, you're one of the world's greatest actors. But the catch-22 is that you can't just say ''Screw it, I'm gonna cut loose, throw on a toga, and ham it up as Zeus.'' Or can you? Olivier lets his Athenian freak flag fly as the original god father. While Harry Hamlin undergoes the trials of Perseus, Olivier kicks back on Mount Olympus making googly eyes at Ursula Andress' Aphrodite.
