Paul McCartney... though we are quickly moving into basset hound territory.
Ringo Starr. These days he keeps them hidden behind a dark-lensed pair of glasses, but they were probably his most noticeable feature in the old days (well, besides the huge schnozz).
Funnily enough, cats avert this in real life. If a cat ever opens its pupils really wide like Puss is in the page image, it means the cat is tense and/or excited (as in, just about to attack something — possibly you). The cat's way of enticing a human to do something does not involve much direct eye contact at all — they purr and rub their heads/bodies against you or nearby objects.
That is, unless they simply meow/howl at you until you cave in just to shut the cat up. This is a common problem for owners of Siamese and other very vocal breeds.
