Interesting Facts

1 Broke into films following his military service when he became a technical adviser to a film about the Navy. His strong good looks and resemblance to Rock Hudson were instantly noticed which prompted a successful screen test at Universal. Although he was reluctant, they offered him a contract he couldn't refuse financially.
2 His parents wanted him to become a lawyer and John himself expressed an early interest in law, Latin America and diplomacy. He earned a BA from Stanford University after attending St John's Military Academy and Villanova Prep School. He was a member of Stanford's Naval ROTC unit.
3 Served in the Navy (1952-1955) during and after the Korean War. He was an air intelligence officer. Due to his fluency in both Spanish and English he was also a flag lieutenant.
4 Although he was abruptly replaced by Sean Connery in the part of James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever (1971), he received his full salary for the role.
5 Alfred Hitchcock was unhappy with his performance in Psycho (1960). He thought John's acting style was wooden and referred to him as "The Stiff" in interviews.
6 He and ex-wife Cicely Evans have 2 daughters together, Christina Gavin and Maria Gavin.
7 Grew up completely bilingual in English and Spanish.
8 He was of Irish and Mexican descent. His father's Golenor family were California landowners when it was still under Spanish rule. His mother was a member of a prestigious ranching dynasty in Sonora. His parents divorced and his mother remarried to a man named Ray Gavin, a well-to-do mining engineer. John eventually took his surname.
9 (1952-1955) Served as air intelligence officer with the Navy's Office of Naval Intelligence.
10 (1971-1973) President of Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
11 Served as U.S. Ambassador to Mexico by appointment by his friend, US president Ronald Reagan in May, 1981. Both Gavin and Reagan had served as president of the Screen Actors Guild.

Net Worth & Salary

Psycho (1960) $30,000


1 I don't want to be called another Rock Hudson. And Hudson was probably angrier than I am about that. They use his name too loosely. It is true there is a faint physical resemblance. Like Rock, I am six feet four, weigh 190 pounds, have brown eyes and black hair. But I assure you I never tried to look like him, not even by way of a haircut. I am an individualist.
2 When I was studying law at Stanford, I had to take on the odd jobs that any kid who supports himself thought college would have to do. When I say 'Beverly Hills,' people automatically think I was reared with a silver spoon in my mouth. It was more like copper. I waited on tables in my fraternity to get spending money. Actually, I've been financially on my own since I was 20. I grit my teeth in horror when I read all the nonsense written about my so-called rich, privileged background.
3 As far as I'm concerned, it's time the button-down collar, white shirt, and tie became the uniform of Hollywood's male dramatic personnel. There are no bare-chested, pectoral-showing parts on my film calendar. (From a Universal-International press release, circa 1959.)
