More information

Bushman was born in Baltimore, Maryland. As a young man, he joined the Maryland Athletic Club and began the body building that developed his muscular physique. He cited Eugen Sandow as one of his influences. He worked as a sculptor's model in New York City, often posing in the nude for the classes.



In 1902, Bushman married Josephine Fladung, a seamstress. By the beginning of his film career, they had five children. In 1918, Bushman became the center of a national scandal, when his affair with costar Beverly Bayne became public. His wife divorced him, and three days before the divorce was final, he married Bayne; they later had a son. Bushman and the studios he worked for, Essanay and Metro Pictures, had kept his marriage secret, fearing it would affect his popularity. He eventually would be married four times.
