Paul Hogan won a Golden Globe in 1986 for his role in Crocodile Dundee; but what happened to him afterward? Paul Hogan was a successful TV personality in his native Australia; known for his “ocher” (meaning slightly sexist and uncultured, but good natured humor) comedic style. He had a fairly successful public career, acting in a number of shows and commercials; including touting Foster’s Lager and Winfield Cigarettes before starring in Crocodile Dundee; a movie he wrote; and a role that landed him instant fame in the United States.
He went on to marry his co star, Linda Kozlowski and spent many years fighting with the Australian government over alleged tax evasion. On an interesting side note; he turned down the male lead in Ghost – lucky for Patrick Swayze.
