It was too brief of a life for River Phoenix. The sexy actor passed away at the age of twenty-three. River made his acting debut in various commercials, but he hit the big time in the early 80s television adventure series Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. After multiple parts on TV, the big screen fell in love with River in the coming-of-age drama Stand By Me (1986). River showed off his sexy body in the gay-friendly drama My Own Private Idaho (1991). Even though his clothes stayed on, River looked sexy in uniform in the Vietnam War drama Dogfight (1991), and he looked amazing as a gun-toting cowboy in the western-themed Silent Tongue (1993). River’s star burned out too soon, but Mr. Man will never forget his sexy physique and his handsome, boyish charm that made the world flutter and sigh. Rest in peace, dude.
