Celebrities (and Chewbacca) Fondling Their Vinyl Collections

What do Marlon Brando, Sophia Loren, and Audrey Hepburn have in common, besides being beautiful and mostly-dead? They apparently loved their vinyl records, as captured in this wonderfully nostalgic gallery. Also, there's a photo of Chewbacca sexy-relaxing (with records!).

The whole thing might seem hokey and simply sentimental, but it does make you sort of pine for a time at which there was some way to "show off" your music collection. Beyond just scrolling down your iTunes or Spotify library, or placing your iPod gently on a table. Right..? It's also possible we just don't give a shit about pride in collecting music, as we snatch whatever we want from wherever we want, and carry it with us 24/7 like a digital mound of bacteria. I can't even remember where the last CD I bought is—probably under my couch somewhere. And that doesn't really bother me.

And, as promised, the bonus Chewbacca photo.
