Just because The Expendables hits theaters on Friday night, it doesn't mean we're going to jump on the manliness bandwagon --.though we'll admit, viewers (and their girlfriends) can expect some serious kick-ass action.
The main actors are perhaps the manliest men in film, yet they've seen the other side -- we're talking sequin-ed pants, 3-D kiddie movies and Vanessa Carlton sing-a-longs. But before we spoil it, let's allow Bruce Willis, Terry Crews, Sylvester Stallone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger to show you themselves.
1. Bruce Willis in "Look Who's Talking"
The man plays the voice of a baby. Come on.
(Check out the video clip and five more unmanly examples after the jump ...)
2. Terry Crews in "White Chicks"
Crews sings along with Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" as a bewildering serenade for one of the Wayans brothers disguised as, yeah, a white chick.
3. Sylvester Stallone in "Rhinestone"
Stallone and Dolly Parton should have triggered the loudest alarms. But apparently no one heard them.
4. Stallone in "Spy Kids 3D: Game Over"
Now, we couldn't find a scene online with Stallone in it, but we did find Ebert and Roeper ripping the movie apart. And they do show a tiny bit of Stallone, so, why not?
5. Arnold Schwarzenegger in Twins
Twins, with Danny DeVito, is a big "wtf"-kind of movie (but also a dumb-humor guilty pleasure). The best video wasn't available for embedding, so we hyperlinked it to the movie's title above in red. Check it out.
6. Schwarzenegger in "Kindergarten Cop"
"Who is your daddy and what does he do?" With a line like that, need we say more?
