I think that Omar is just as handsome as he was when he was young! I don`t think there are gentlemen like him nowdays.

Omar, did convert to Islam when he married a Muslim woman some years back. I am not sure if he currently practices the faith, but he did at one time convert to it.

jey54Jul 19, 2009

If ever being capable of crashing on someone would be this Omar Sharif whom remains all same prince of charming; when he`s talking of lonesome staying in an impersonal hotel room; what a ironic that be!!!
