My Weekly Spock – Unconventionally Handsome

Hey All,

Recently I posted a picture of young Leonard on an  FB page that caters to vintage images (1st picture below) and, to me at least, it was surprising to read the comments. Many seemed ‘shocked’ that he was ‘attractive’ in his youth, readers compared him to Paul Newman, Kevin Costner, and Chris Evans!  And comments ranged from ‘So Handsome!’, ‘Swoon’ and ‘Who knew?’ to  “He’s positively scary looking to me!” and ‘Yuck!”

Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Personally (of course) he was perfection to me as a 13 year old.  40+ years on it seems he still had something that just made him beautiful.  Not just the soft brown eyes,  the hair, perfect jawline and warm smile, but especially that he was a genuinely good, loving, creative, and compassionate human being.  It’s easy for someone who wasn’t familiar with him to scoff at his ‘unconventional’ handsomeness.  To me it was enough that Nimoy himself didn’t find himself attractive, but he didn’t have to; we all saw it for him, and we loved him for himself.

The world could use more Leonard Nimoys.  ❤
