Hot Men: Mark Ruffalo
He’s the good-natured guy next door who fights for causes close to his heart, such as keeping a drama class open at his local school. But Mark Ruffalo is also a suave leading man, having starred in The Avengers, 13 Going On 30 and Shutter Island. He’ll soon be making you swoon in Begin Again, so here’s some extra info about the talented star…
Birthplace: Wisconsin, USA
Short, Back & Sides: All three of Mark’s sisters are hairdressers, as is his mum, but he chose to be an actor and attended drama school with his best friend, Benicio Del Toro.
TRAUMA: In 2001 he had a brain tumour removed, which left him with facial paralysis for a year, but he made a complete recovery and was able to return to acting.
The Green Machine: Mark cares greatly about the environment and his non-profit organisation, Water Defense, works to stop drilling for natural gas and researches more eco-friendly alternatives.
Bear Hug: Ruffalo has often been referred to as ‘the friendliest man in Hollywood’, and his Avengers co-star Samuel L Jackson confirmed that the movie’s cast members would go to Mark for daily hugs because “he’s just everybody’s little cuddly bear”.
INFO: Begin Again is out across the UAE on 21 Aug
