Crocodile Tears

Ryan linked to this thread full of photos by Sam Taylor-Wood of actors crying. Some of them look more posed than others, all of them are wonderful, and this one made me incredibly depressed.

More emotion is conveyed in this still photo than in the entirety of TWO STAR WARS MOVIES. Fuck you, George Lucas.

    I never could bear to see men crying. For some reason it just makes me feel so hopeless! (Crap, I just now figured out why that is. Time to go bury my head in thought for a while…)

    Michael Madsen?!? That possibly breaks several laws of physics, I think.

    Thank you for being the only other person on the internet who understands that Hayden Christensen terrible acting in those was NOT HIS FAULT, but was Lucas’ direction. Thank you.

    Pfft. Michael Madsen cried when Chris Penn hid his favorite zippo lighter and then died. ONLY TIME.

    Male actors crying will often have me in tears in a trice. Some struggle to convince at times, but when they get it right… whoa. (Yes, ASH, Kiefer Sutherland, Ewan McGregor, James Marsters, Jared Padalecki, JDM etc., I’m looking at you.)

    As for Mr Christensen, when George wasn’t trying to stifle him emotionally, he was actually rather good, particularly during that moment in RoTS where Anakin is crying silently while he’s trying to make his decision. (Pity it was the wrong one, but then where would we be otherwise? Heehee.)
