Charles Bronson is easily one of the most manly men who ever graced the silver screen. People talk about Chuck Norris, but the real heads know that it’s Charles Bronson who sits at the head of the tough guy table.

As tough as he was, Bronson was also a total sweetheart. After he married English bombshell Jill Ireland he made sure that she was at his side on as many of his films as possible. After the duo started having kids he continued bringing his family everywhere with him, often piling them in an RV and driving to the film location.

While Bronson wasn’t a man of many words, he clearly loved Ireland which is something that feels so refreshing in this day and age. Sadly, Ireland passed away from breast cancer in 1990 at the home she and Bronson shared in Malibu.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
