Favorite male actors

Why do men love these actors? They starred in their favorite boy films and embodied the ideal of masculinity for children. It is probably hard to find men whose childhood was in the 1990s, who did not play the Terminator and did not speak in a stern voice: “I’llbeback” to scare the bully or impress the girl. Let’s remember today the actors who inspired those very boys.

Arnold Schwarzenegger
In a nutshell, Schwarzenegger’s biography may read: “Schwarzenegger decided – Schwarzenegger did.” Wanted to be the best bodybuilder in the world? Done! Wanted to move from Germany to America? You are welcome. Become a successful businessman? There is. A world famous actor? There is. By the governor? Performed. In this list, perhaps, only the position of the US president is missing. Although the “The Simpsons” and the film “Destroyer” predicted such a development. However, perhaps this is yet to come.

When Schwarzenegger arrived in the United States, he was an illegal migrant who barely spoke English. Which did not stop him from making a brilliant acting career.

Why do we love?

For both in films and in life, Arnold Schwarzenegger sets himself global goals and always achieves them.

Sylvester Stallone
But Sylvester Stallone at the beginning of his career, it seems, did everything right: from childhood he played in the theater and even received a specialized education. But somehow they were in no hurry to call him to a big movie. Then the 30-year-old actor found a way out. He wrote the screenplay for the movie Rocky. The plot, by the way, is based on a real fight between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner.

Stallone sold this script on condition that he got the main role. The film received three Oscar awards, and Stallone became the only person in the history of cinema who was simultaneously nominated for the main film award immediately in both the acting and scenario categories. Immediately after “Rocky,” he set about scripting the movie “Rambo.” And in general, in many films, Stallone acts as an actor, and screenwriter, and producer, and sometimes director. As the saying goes: if you want to do well, do it yourself.

Why do we love?

For bringing together all the “cool guys” in Hollywood and not afraid to look cool enough against their background.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson
Have you noticed that Dwayne Johnson smiles widely in almost all photos? It seems to me that he is on purpose: otherwise, photographers think that they will be killed now. “Rock” is really a mountain of muscles. It was to him that Hugh Jackman at one time came for advice on how to gain muscle mass for the role of Wolverine.

In the movie, Johnson came from wrestling. This is not a fight, but rather an acrobatic show. Participants in staged fights play whole series in front of the audience, in which there is friendship and hostility, honesty and meanness, loyalty and betrayal. By the time of the conquest of Hollywood, Johnson was already quite famous. Therefore, he even got into the Guinness Book of Records, receiving the highest fee for a film debut.

Why do we love?

For self-irony. The huge and menacing looking wrestler is not averse to laughing at himself. One of the proofs of this is that he himself published his funny photo from the 1990s, and even made a parody of it.

Bruce willis
Fame did not come to Bruce Willis right away. He played for a long time in small theaters and starred in episodes before he was invited to the comedy show Detective Agency Moonlight, and his career would probably have developed in a comedic direction if director John McTiernan hadn’t invited him to Die Hard “. So Bruce Willis turned into a tough guy. Perhaps unexpectedly for himself.

Why do we love?

For what he proves, superheroes do not have to possess a huge mountain of muscles. This may be an ordinary guy in a difficult situation. In the words of John McClain: “This is hard work, but someone has to do it.”

Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood – winner of five Oscars and generally unique to Hollywood people. He began his career with the roles of the laconic heroes of action films and spaghetti westerns, but soon began to shoot himself and play in his own films. He received his main awards precisely for directorial work.

Clint Eastwood is already 87 years old, and he is still the same tall, stately and confident. He will not run like a Stallone or Willis on the roofs with an automatic rifle. It is enough for him to look at the enemy with his piercing gaze and say: calmly, slowly and very convincingly.
