When Grown Men Cry (13 Famous Actors)

Robin Williams

What do grown men look like when they cry? Photographer Sam Taylor-Wood handpicked some of Hollywood's leading film actors and took fascinating portraits of them as they bared their emo side and shed some tears.

“Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera, but others found it really difficult, said Taylor-Wood. “People can decide for themselves which they think are the authentic tears and which they think are fake. It's about the idea of taking these big, masculine men and showing a different side.”
