‘Mao’s Last Dancer’, ‘Australia’, ‘Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones’, ‘The Assassination of Richard Nixon’, ‘The Sum of Us’, ‘Leatherheads’ and ‘The Great Gatsby’ are some of the movies that the beloved Jack Thompson has appeared in.

Born in 1940 in Sydney Australia, award-winning Thompson is one of the best-known lead actors in numerous celebrated Australian films.

Controversially, in 1972, he was the first nude male centerfold in Cleo magazine.

His mother died when he was just four years old, leaving his father, a merchant seaman, unable to care for him and his brother. He was sent to a boarding school by his father and was later adopted by his best friends parents. His adopted brother is the film reviewer Peter Thompson.

Quite the ‘Don Juan’ of Australia, Thompson has two sons. The first Patrick was born with his first wife Beverley and his second, Billy, during a 15-year polyamorous relationship with both Leona King and her sister Bunkie.
