Of course, I'm talking about Robby Benson, teen idol of the late 1970s and 1980s. He appeared in some movies, but really, he was too beautiful to be a major star -- everyone was so busy swooning and sighing to pay attention to the plot.
He had a physique and a basket, too, but who noticed? We were busy imagining what it would be like to walk hand-in-hand with Robby through the rain, and share a brief, chaste kiss.
Oh, I hear laughter in the rain,
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Sorry, I had a Neil Sedaka moment.What was I writing about, again?
Right, Robby's kids. It seems that Robby married a woman named Karla DeVito (so someone had the strength to look at him without swooning) and had two kids, Lyric (born 1983) and Zephyr (born 1992).
Zephyr lacks the drop-dead gorgeousness of his father, although he is quite attractive, with dreamy blue eyes.
He has the same slim, tight physique as his father, but not so tightly muscled.
He's an aspiring actor with 7 credits listed on the imdb, including more than one gay character.
His magnum opus to date is Straight Outta Tomkins (2015), which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in. It's about a teenager who falls in with a drug dealer, and mistakes the mercenary attention for a real emotional connection.
Plus he tweets his support of marriage equality. What else could you want in the son of a teen idol?
