Lou Ferrigno (not to mention Ivo, the Bulgarian bodybuilder who was insanely jealous of Michael J. Fox).
And I met publisher Joe Weider, the father of modern bodybuilding. He was rather gruff.
In spite of his homophobia, Joe Weider was instrumental in bringing bodybuilding into the mainstream. He published many fitness magazines (one edited by the Grandfather of Bodybuilding, Earle E. Liederman), and books (plus some other titles, including softcore hetero porn), and invented nutritional supplements like Tiger's Milk. His self-help pamphlets, covering everything from bodybuilding to nutrition to confidence building to how to be heterosexual (a "he-man," left), were advertised everywhere, even in comic books.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bob Paris. When Bob came out in 1989, Joe was reputedly furious that a gay person had sneaked into the ranks of his beautiful heterosexual bodybuilders. I wonder what he thought about gay employees.
Joe Weider died on March 23rd, 2013, at the age of 93.
