Vintage Sunday 1

Despite his recent career failings and shortcomings, 44-year-old actor Richard Gomez was the quintessential leading man of his time. Tall, very dark and handsome, a then 20-year-old upstart crew worker from MacDonalds appeared in the movies as an awkward lead with lots of appeal and charm. He steered local clothing brand Bench to new heights when he appeared in its ads endorsing shirts, jeans and briefs. Back then, he was one of the very few actors brave enough to wear small speedos and jockeys for promo pictures.

  1. Yung mga vintage movies niya na Impaktita at Blusang Itim ang magpapatunay kung gaano kasarap at kakisig dati si Goma. Perfect example ng isang Pinoy guy. Tall, dark and handsome talaga.

  2. may picture sya na kumalat dati na labas nota di ba? yun naman ang ipost mo rd. lam mo naman mrami kami ditong mga purita, wala kaming datung pambook ng mga mhin kaya sayo lang kami umaasa para makakita ng mga nota. lol.

  3. sobrang vintage naman nitoh, di pa ko pinapanganak! hahaha. why not post yung pics nung 70s, i heard todo hubaran noon dahil naglipana ang mga pene movies.

  4. Ay may part 2 kasi ang title Vintage Sunday 1. Bilis post mo na RD. I love ViNTAGE SUNDAYS! Namimiss ko collection ko dati dyan sa pinas!

  5. medyo sikat na sya when this was taken i remember him in one of his first movie, inday bote 1985 with maricel soriano. payat pa sya talaga as in hanger ng polo ang dating.

  6. I always liked Goma noon pa man bata sya. I find him very Pinoy and appealing. I remember I used to collect all his posters and buy the mags kung saan andun sya sa centerfold na naka trunks. Tinapon ko lahat bago ako punta dito sa WA. Thanks RD for this pic, nag nostalgia na naman ako…

  7. Uy naman crush ko din sya noon nangongolekta ako magasin na meron sya na naka trunks hahah nung bata pa ako sya pantasya ko pinagjajakulan ko sya lagi! haaay! reminiscing!

  8. i think si goma nun kung saan ngayon si piolo. mga naging matinee idols because of their natural kagwapuhan. marami man dyan ang di papayag pero yan talaga ang totoo.

    gwapo, matipuno, pinoy na pinoy ang dating ni richard gomez lalo pa nung kabataan niya. and ganon din naman ngayon si piolo who is in his early 30’s already as he himself admitted sa interview niya with ricky lo.

    ka room mate ko yung nurse sa hospital na pinagdalhan sa kanya kung saan kailangan tahiin ang pwet kc napunit, di nga ako makapaniwala. i think that was in 1994

  10. He WAS hot then..He is Piolo of the 80s and the early 90s..(popularity wise ok!)..mag react na magrereact.. pero look at him now..EVEN the 2 biggest networks care less of loosing him. LAOS.. mayabang kasi.. i just accidentally saw his stint sa PO5 earlier.. imagine.. sabihan ba naman si john na “pare, galing kang brazil.. ang daming magaganda dun..papatulan mo pa ba yan (referring to wilma when wilma welcomed john back from brazil and was asking for a kissed).. UGALI!..sana hindi ganyan si pj.. so far malayo naman sa ganung ugali

  11. I agree. Saksakan ng yabang ang taong ito. Napaka-opinionated na akala mo naman may saysay ang mga opinion niya. And the nerve to run for senator and congressman. Eh tax evader naman. How can one aspire to become a lawmaker when he himself does not follow the law. Kapal!

  12. Parang gusto kong maniwala sa kumalat na chismax dati na naging jowa ito ng isang peninsulares de sociedad. that’s the reason why, at one time eh nagdirek- direk kuno kuno ito ng mga commercials for the said corporation- dahil ang hari ng corporation ang benefactor nya. hanggang sa sya nga ay matumbong at mapilasan… :)…”sunlight, ooh sunlight, bring me the light i need to guide me…”

    totoo din ba ang chismax na naging jowa ito ng gay apparel magnate kaya for the time being eh sya ang signature model at hari harian sa clothing brand na iyon?

  13. guapo nga sya pero sobrang epal, mahambog, mapapel, maangas, matapobre, gamitero. ni hindi ko sya pinagnassan kahit guapo kasi di ko talaga gusto ang ugali.

  14. Richard Gomez may be tall, dark, and (to some people) handsome but he is not a good example ng Pinoy na lalaki. Mestizo kaya s’ya. Si Chard Pangilinan ang magandang example (and, no, I’m not promoting him). O si Coco Martin. O si Piolo o Aljur, mga ganung tipo. I can see why people like him pero ‘di ko dig ang appeal nito. Except sa “Palibhasa” siguro.

  15. SOBRA NG HAMBOG SI GOMA. MASYADONG BILIB SA SARILI. TUMATANDA SI NG PAURONG. KASI NAKASAKAY KO SIA SA PLANE FROM MANILA TO DAVAO. IMBIS HUMINGI NG EXCUSE SA GINAWA NIA MALI AY NAGALIT PA. GETZ MO?

  16. Below are Richard’s films na nagpakita ng SEXY BODY niya. I always watch them sa CINEMA ONE kasihe is very delicious:

    1.) KAILAN MAHUHUGASAN ANG KASALANAN 1988
    2.)EASTWOOD & BRONSON 1989
    3.) DYESEBEL 1990
    4.) VIRGINIA P. 1990
    5.) IISA PA LAMANG 1992
