The era of the macho man in Hollywood and sports is one that seems to have faded in recent years. Many now wonder where the tough guys like Charles Bronson, Clint Eastwood and John Wayne have gone. It seems as if today's tough guy is one who would rather cry on your shoulder than break it. Or would he? Let's take a look at some surprising secrets and habits from today's tough guys and then ask yourself if they're still someone you'd wanna mess with.
HUGH JACKMAN He dances! He sings! He does Broadway! We all know that Hugh Jackman is talented, but everyone's favorite X-Man will sometimes retract the claws to belt out a show tune or trip the light fantastic with a dance number. But make no mistake: this Aussie's strict workout routine and diet make him a lean, mean fighting machine. Get in Jackman's face and this wolverine will dance all over your bloodied, lifeless body.
OSCAR DE LA HOYA One of the most successful fighters in history, De La Hoya has won 10 different titles in six different weight classes. But when the gloves come off, the lingerie goes on. The famous boxer recently admitted that the pictures leaked of him wearing high heels, lingerie and a wig were not fabricated. Despite De La Hoya's preference for soft, silky teddies, “The Golden Boy” would still knock you into next week if you teased him with a wolf whistle and a wink.
TOM HARDY Who cares if he's slept with men? Definitely not Tom Hardy. In 2010, the Dark Knight's upcoming arch-nemesis and current onscreen Warrior matter-of-factly told an interviewer who asked him if he ever had gay sex, "Of course I have. I'm an actor for fuck's sake." He also openly admits that he has feminine qualities. And why shouldn't he be proud? The back-breaking Batman villain can get you in a triangle choke that'll have you begging for mercy before finally blacking out.
