Mark Wahlberg won the Generational award at the recent MTV Movie Awards gala. In his acceptance speech, the protagonist of the new Transformers said that he decided to become an actor after seeing a film of the legendary Charles Bronson.
And it could not be for less, since Bronson was one of the most hard and violent actors who has had the big screen, in addition to having a prolific career. But beyond their professional merits, it is the best reference for any action hero, because in his private life was also a really rough type, these references confirm that.
