Designer Ralph Lauren dreamed of being an Hollywood actor as a child, and didn't even know what a clothing designer was. The Polo mogul writes in his upcoming book Ralph Lauren that he grew up idolising John Wayne. He writes, "I thought (acting) was cool and that I'd have lots of girlfriends. When I'd go to the movies... it wasn't just watching John Wayne on the screen - I was the cowboy, I was the man on the horse. "I didn't even know what a designer was."
