''The King of Cool.''

Terence Steven "Steve" [=McQueen=] (March 24, 1930 November 7, 1980) was an American movie actor and star of such films as ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'', ''Film/TheGreatEscape'', ''Film/TheCincinnatiKid'', ''Film/TheThomasCrownAffair1968'', ''Film/{{Bullitt}}'', ''Film/{{Papillon}}'', ''Film/TheToweringInferno'', and ''Film/LeMans''. Early film work included a supporting role in the Creator/PaulNewman film ''Somebody Up There Likes Me'', about boxer "Rocky" Marciano. He also starred in the horror movie ''Film/TheBlob1958'', and shortly after that began his three-year run as star of the Western series ''Series/WantedDeadOrAlive''. His "anti-hero" persona, which he developed at the height of the Vietnam counterculture, made him one of the top box-office draws of the 1960s and 1970s. [=McQueen=] received an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for his role in ''TheSandPebbles''. 1974, he became the highest-paid movie star in the world. Although [=McQueen=] was combative with directors and producers, his popularity put him in high demand and enabled him to command large salaries.

Began a RomanceOnTheSet with [=Ali McGraw=], his co-star in ''Film/TheGetaway'', causing her to divorce her husband, legendary Creator/{{Paramount}} studio head Robert Evans.

He died of cancer in 1980 shortly after the release of his final film ''Film/{{The Hunter|1980}}''. His son Chad played one of the "Kobra Kais" in ''Film/TheKarateKid'' (1984) and his grandson, [=Steven R. McQueen=], is a regular on the series ''Series/TheVampireDiaries''.

Not to be confused with the British artist/film director of ''Film/{{Hunger}}'', ''Film/{{Shame}}'', and ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave'', who was named after him (and is discussed below). An easy mistake to make.

A friend and student of Creator/BruceLee, he was one of his pallbearers after his untimely death. Before he began acting he was a U.S. Marine, and saved the lives of five men when the tank they were driving broke through the ice during an Arctic exercise.

Steven Rodney "Steve" [=McQueen=] (born 9 October 1969) is an English-born director, screenwriter, and video artist.

[=McQueen=] started out directing black-and-white minimalist shorts designed to be projected onto the walls of art galleries. He has often cited inspiration from Creator/AndyWarhol and Creator/BusterKeaton, winning the Turner prize (Britain's highest artistic honor) in 1999 for ''[[https://vimeo.com/115803652 Deadpan]]'', a short inspired by the infamous collapsing house stunt from ''Film/SteamboatBillJr''. [=McQueen=] has also dabbled in sculpture and photography, and received a great deal of acclaim for his 2007 work ''Queen and Country'', a collection of stamps commemorating all of the British soldiers who died fighting in Iraq between 2003 and 2008, though he considers the work incomplete as the stamps have yet to be released to the general public for use.

In 2008, [=McQueen=] made his first foray into feature films with ''Film/{{Hunger}}'', a drama about the 1981 Irish Hunger Strike, which received great critical acclaim, winning the Caméra d'Or (first-time director) Award at the Cannes Film Festival. He followed this up with ''Film/{{Shame}}'', a drama about sex addiction that received similar acclaim, particularly for the performances of Creator/MichaelFassbender and Creator/CareyMulligan. In 2013, [=McQueen=] released ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave'', a drama based on the memoirs of Solomon Northup, a free black man who was kidnapped and sold into slavery. This was [=McQueen=]'s most acclaimed film yet, winning many prizes, including the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Picture, making Steve [=McQueen=] the first black director who have directed a movie that won the top prize[[note]]he did not, however, win Best Director. That went to Creator/AlfonsoCuaron for the film ''Film/{{Gravity}}''[[/note]]

[=McQueen=] next plans to direct a film based on the 1981 British TV series ''Widows'', as well as a biopic of Creator/PaulRobeson.

Known for his use of long takes, relentless realism, and often working with Creator/MichaelFassbender.
