E! Online, in compiling its list of the 12 great Hollywood love affairs of the past 100 years, put the alleged relationship between leading man Cary Grant and impossibly handsome actor Randolph Scott at number 9. Though evidence of their bond is circumstantial, it is admittedly curious that the two men shared digs for 10 years, even before and after Grants 1934 marriage to Virginia Cherrill. They were known for their extremely cozy publicity shots, one of the most famous being the two of them playing with the dog as they dined together at the breakfast table. There was, of course, never any confirmation from either party, and when Hedda Hopper tried to pry into Grants life, she was simply told, My personal affairs are none of your goddamned business.
