These Amazing Men Are British Lions

I'm a huge Anglophile. I love so much about the United Kingdom. One of the best things from across the Atlantic is all the great classic British actors. These men have amazing talent, class & style. I wanted to share some photos with you. There are many others that I admire, but this is a start. Let me know what you think. Plus please let me know of any other Brits you would like me to cover here. Thanks.

I don't really know a lot of British actors because I am not a big fan of English movies.
I've seen Michael Caine in a lot of American movies and I loved his role in Miss Congeniality.
Have a great Monday.
