The 1st On-Screen, BIGGEST in The Business List ... And We're Not Talking Boxoffice or Height!

Because of what we do, Costumers and Makeup Artists have long been privy to the personal lives of some performers. Including certain attributes they may possess larger than others. And, performers that for whatever reason are more than happy to strut their stuff ... so to speak ... with sexual orientation not really relevant. Once, when I came into the makeup trailer, I found a star in full glory. I immediately said; "What do you want me to do with it? ... Throw it over my shoulder and burp it?!" That was the last time the subject ever came up. (Sorry, bad pun)

While most of the people on this list are already known, been photographed nude, written up, had anatomical duplications made, or have been verified in other ways, one can always suspect that a few may just be rumors started by themselves. In any case, I tried to par down what I "knew" to be "rumored", but a few may have slipped in. (For those of you who look regularly, you will notice some names have been taken off because proof showed otherwise)

Please take this list for what it is ... great party talk when things get boring. This list is in no particular order, and while I know or knew some of these people personally, I did not put anyone ahead of another because of their larger attribute. This list will be added to or changed as more proof is verified.

Enjoy, Damon Charles

It used to be that if you wanted to write me or make comments, you could do it on the IMDB Message Board at the bottom of the Damon Charles web page. Unfortunately on February 17, 2017 IMDB discontinued this site on everyones page. Sadly, getting a hold of me is now impossible as I am not on Facebook, or any other social networks. So it is here that I give you full permission to feel free and put a link to this list on YOUR Facebook or other social media pages. Let's make this "List" soar with viewers. I do appreciate all the responses I did get in the past, and more than appreciate all the positive feedback I had been getting for having it up. Thanks, Damon Charles

Rock Hudson
Actor, Giant
Rock Hudson was born Roy Harold Scherer, Jr. in Winnetka, Illinois, to Katherine (Wood), a telephone operator, and Roy Harold Scherer, an auto mechanic. He was of German, Swiss-German, English, and Irish descent. His parents divorced when he was eight years old. He failed to obtain parts in school plays because he couldn't remember lines...
“ Actor,

Personal Note: Early on in our working relationship I knew that Roy had a "thing" for me. I was already with Andy at the time, and nothing was going to separate us. But Roy did try. One day after filming, I came into his dressing room to remove his makeup and cut his hair. When I arrived he was already sitting in the makeup chair with his back to the door I entered, but I could see he did not have on a shirt. As I approached I realized he was completely naked and he was showing off what he was overly endowed with. I just looked at him and politely said: "What do you want me to do ... throw it over my shoulder and burp it?" That was the last time that particular subject ever raised its head. (I cannot believe I said that) He did try for a long time with other gestures and statements to try and get me to become interested in him "physically". It was just never going to happen ... even though I liked him very much. He was just too sad a person who really needed attention. ” - a-17

Tab Hunter
Dreamy Tab Hunter stands out in film history as one of the hottest teen idols of the 1950s era.

Hunter was born Arthur Kelm on July 11...

Forrest Tucker

He began his performing career at age 14 at the 1933 Chicago "Century of Progress" World's Fair, pushing big wicker tourists' chairs by day and singing at night...
“ Actor,

Personal Note: The stories told about Forrest's giant "tree" were not exaggerated ... well maybe some. But the man liked to show it off, or at least talk about when he could. And in some films you can actually see it flopping in his pants near his knee. The story about his golfing episode at The Lakeside Golf Course has had much speculation, but insiders I was close with (and at the game) confirmed Forrest DID putt that ball in the hole (with his mighty putter, or 11 plus iron) for a money dare from his fellow players. ” - a-17

George Raft

“ Actor,

Personal Note: According to Forrest Tucker, one night after heavy drinking at a bar, and bragging about probably having the biggest "member" of anyone in the place, George Raft took on a money bet with him and the two proceeded to show their stuff. First Forrest who was close to 11 inches laid it on the bar. Then in Forrest's own words; "George laid his on the bar ... and it also hung over the edge." Forrest supposedly lost the money bet. ” - a-17

Personal Note: Rudy gave me at least 50 reviews from live shows he performed at.
