American movie star Steve McQueen, died at age 50.

Terrence Stephen McQueen (March 24, 1930 – November 7, 1980) was an American film and television actor. His antihero character, which was highlighted during the 1960s counterculture heyday, earned him a top box-office draw for his films from the late 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. He was known as the “King of Cool” and raced under the name Harvey Mushman.

McQueen was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in The Sand Pebbles (1966). Love With the Proper Stranger (1963), The Cincinnati Kid (1965), Nevada Smith (1966), The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Bullitt (1968), Le Mans (1971), The Getaway (1972), and Papillon are among his other well-known films (1973). He also appeared in the all-star ensemble films The Magnificent Seven (1960), The Great Escape (1963), and The Towering Inferno (1974).

McQueen became the highest-paid movie star in the world in 1974, despite not acting in a film for another four years. He was combative with directors and producers, but his popularity put him in great demand, allowing him to charge the highest fees.
