When grown men cry (on-screen)

Posted on


Jezebel has up a way-excellent compilation of 57 Hollywood actors emptying their tear ducts for our viewing pleasure. (See the video embedded after the jump.) Among my favorites: Tom Cruise’s strangled, furious weeping in Magnolia; Denzel Washington’s proud, defiant tear in Glory; and — of course — every single one of the 146 times Robert De Niro has cried on screen. (Seriously, there’s a lot more than you might’ve guessed from such a consummate tough guy!) Which are your faves? And who did they miss? I notice the very first comment over at Jezebel.com is a still of Johnny Depp in Crybaby.
