Phillippe Sinatra

Ryan Phillippe also has a fascination - formerly an obsession - with Frank Sinatra.

"I didn't date much in high school," he said, "and when I was 16 I used to drive around in my dad's pickup on Friday night and listen to Sid Mark."

A particular fan of Ol' Blue Eyes' 1950s period, "when his voice and swagger peaked," Phillippe named his daughter Ava (after Sinatra love Ava Gardner) and his bulldog, who passed away last year, Frank.

He became this macho icon, Phillippe said of his idol, and he started as "a little runt of a guy from Hoboken."
