His muscular physique has us all swooning, but Eric Bana’s acting talent is also cause for excitement. From romantic hit The Time Traveler’s Wife to action flicks like Troy, Hulk and Star Trek, Eric’s done it all in Hollywood. He’ll next be seen in the scary Deliver Us from Evil, so here’s a little bit more info about him…
Birthplace: Melbourne, Australia
Petrolhead: Eric is obsessed with cars and originally wanted to become a mechanic. He bought his first motor when he was aged just 15 and spent a year fixing it up and making it roadworthy. He’s also taken part in several rally championships.
Funny Bones: Bana started his showbiz career by performing stand-up comedy while he was working in a bar in his native Australia. He was so good at making people laugh that he quit his job serving drinks and became a comedian.
Small-Man Syndrome: Even though Eric is above average in height at 6ft, 2in, he always felt small when he was growing up because his older brother Anthony is 6ft, 8in tall and used to call him ‘Little Bana’.
The Mimic: Eric’s not just great at acting, he’s also amazing at doing impressions of his famous mates, who include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Tom Cruise.
