One of the manliest men to ever grace the silver screen has passed away.
Rod Taylor, star of 1960's The Time Machine, died Wednesday of natural causes at the age of 84.
The athletic Aussie starred in dozens of films and TV shows over the course of his career, most recently as Winston Churchill in Inglourious Basterds.
But he was probably best known as the charming hero who has a meet-cute with — and then must rescue — Tippi Hedron in Alfred Hitchcock's horror classic The Birds.
We'll always remember him as one of our first onscreen crushes. So sad.
We leave you with our favorite picture of Rod (below), and for us that's saying something:

Sienna Miller AND Alfred Hitchcock?
Count us in!
HBO has released two teasers for The Girl, a movie which takes us behind-the-scenes of when Hitchcock made The Birds with Tippi Hedren, played by Miller, and his infatuation with the actress — followed by sexual harassment and finally blacklisting.
Apparently, Toby Jones, the actor who portrays Hitchcock is spectacular as the British film auteur.
We seriously cannot wait to see this scandalicious movie!
Ch-ch-check out the second terrific teaser… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
