Harry Hamlin's Son Has a Very Famous Godfather

We learned so much about the #RHOBH husband on #WWHL.

By Laura Rosenfeld
After Show: Harry on Full Frontal

We totally see why Lisa Rinna is absolutely head over heels in love with her husband Harry Hamlin. We adore him, too! We mean, he's one of the sexiest men alive, he's a talented actor, and he's a loving husband and father.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

One of the reasons why we're really wild about Harry is because he has an air of mystery about him. We only see him for a few brief moments every now and again on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but when we do, we always learn something amazing about him, such as the fact that he's a master pie maker.

When Harry appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen with fellow guest Van Jones on Wednesday, March 15, he did not disappoint. Harry came bearing gifts in the form of some incredible tidbits about his life that you just have to see to believe.

1. He's Super Political

Harry did a bit of fanboying while sitting next to Van, the host of CNN's The Messy Truth, on WWHL. "I have not missed a second of CNN since the beginning of the [presidential] campaign," Harry said. Um, can we please get Harry his own political show, stat?

2. James Bond Is His Son's Godfather

During a round of the game "Which Man Is Sexier?" Harry revealed that Sean Connery is the godfather of eldest child, Dimitri, whose mother is Ursula Andress. Ursula starred as Honey Ryder in the 1962 James Bond film Dr. No with Sean, and apparently, they remained tight.

3. He's Friends with Some Fellow Sexy Men

Harry also revealed during the "Which Man Is Sexier?" game that he's been friendly with fellow hunks Patrick Swayze and George Clooney. That is almost too much hotness too handle.

4. Lisa Says He Can't Compete with This A-Lister

But there's one man who could give him a run for his money, according to Lisa. "Lisa has such a crush on Brad [Pitt]," Harry revealed during the "Which Man Is Sexier?" game. "I'm basically dust in comparison." Hey guys, there's enough room for both of you studs in this world.

5. He Wants to Go Out with a Bang

Lisa has said in the past that her QVC collection has been so successful that Harry could retire from acting. But Harry said that's not his style. "Wouldn't that be nice, but then what am I gonna do? Go fishing? Actors never retire," Harry told Andy Cohen when he brought up his wife's claim on WWHL. "I also have an energy business that I'm very involved with, and I help run Lisa's company. I'm busy, I'm gonna stay busy until the day I drop, and I'm gonna drop doing King Lear."

6. He Admires Lisa's Boldness

Lisa has posed for Playboy twice, and Harry admired how his wife landed in the magazine the first time in 1998. "She came home one night from Melrose Place with a couple of Polaroids. She was seven months pregnant. She said, 'You know what? I'm gonna call [Hugh Hefner] up. I'm gonna be on the cover of Playboy pregnant. I said, 'You're crazy. You're out of your mind. That'll never happen,'" Harry told Andy. "She called him up, next thing you know, first person ever and only person ever to do a spread in Playboy seven months pregnant. I mean, that's Lisa Rinna. That's the girl I married." You can't "hustle the hustler," after all.

7. He's Done Full Frontal

Speaking of nudity, Harry gave some advice to young actors debating whether or not to do full frontal during the WWHL After Show. "Well, if you're doing it live as I have done — San Francisco, I did Equus for two seasons — do not look at the eyes of anybody in the audience, because they always go just like this [looks down]," Harry explained. "When you're doing it on film, don't do it... I think because film never goes away. Film is there forever, and there's no point. I mean, it creates a distraction from whatever story's going on. It just becomes all about that."
