"Hollywood hunks including Jude Law, Robert Downey, Jr. and Laurence Fishburne amazed artist Sam Taylor-Wood with their heart-felt sobs for her bizarre new exhibition, Crying Men. The photographer asked the actors to produce real tears for a series of images which she hopes capture the vulnerable sides of the movie stars. She is particularly proud of pictures of the Cold Mountain hunk weeping in a foetal position and a portrait of Reservoir Dogs star Michael Madsen betraying his hard-man image by crying hysterically. Taylor-Wood explains, "Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera, but others found it really difficult. 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." The exhibition opens tomorrow at London's White Cube gallery."

very beautiful and moving (the jude law one is particularly striking), though I can't help but feel as though I'm intruding on a very private moment...

thanks for posting, moussemaker

I cant't help but thinking how they burst into laughter after the photo session

I must admit that the photos are great, though...

where have i seen these?...anyway...am i the only one who thinks it odd that this chick shows up at an actor's house with an appointment and a camera...and then the actor proceeds to start bawling while she snaps away...?

doesn't it seem at all disinegeuous to anyone else but me...slightly forced and phony...

this doesn't move me in the slightest...these are men who are highly paid to pretend to feel...how is this in any way authentic?...i actually find it a bit annoying...
how about some real men with some real tears???...

c'mon now...
