Full Circle

Forever suave, George Hamilton bring his timeless style to his new line of cigars and cigar clubs.
Alysse Minkoff
From the Print Edition:
Denzel Washington, Jan/Feb 98

(continued from page 4)

Hamilton is, once again, philosophical. "I've ended up on the same beach, in effect, as where I started. But there is a difference now. I've gone through life. I've seen so much, and yet I don't feel a day older than the day I left this beach to go to Hollywood. I'll be lying in the sun the same way, with the same smell of suntan oil walking by. The same feeling of the ocean. And I haven't thought of my age, or any of the time that has gone by. It's the ability to look at my life as though it was only divided by a moment. The years have been compressed into moments. And when you smoke a cigar, you can reveal your life in those moments in an abbreviated way."

Yes, Hamilton does have the perfect tan. And no, he has not led the perfect life. But he has learned much from the hand that life has dealt him. Hamilton's world has come full circle. And as a society, we have finally caught up to that classic, elegant and timeless place on the circle where George Hamilton has always been.
