Male actors crying

I have a lot of crying scenes that I haven't posted yet because most of them are one-offs and I prefer to post things in sets/groups: sets of a given actor crying, sets from a given show, whatever. I like sets. This is gonna be my 'set' for one-off crying scenes.

First, I want to link missyjdma's thread of various crying actors, which gave me the idea for this one. There are lots of clips there, with show and usually the character name of the one crying. Descriptions make things soooo much more searchable.

Stranger Things 1x8 Hopper (David Harbour) has a flashback to a memory of being with his dead daughter in her final days. There's just something about men crying in stairwells that breaks my heart.

Sirens, 1x6 Rhys Thomas' character finally finds a way to grieve his father's death, from the top of an ambulance. It makes a little more sense in context.

Haunting of Bly Manor e6 (I think) Peter Quint (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) has a horrible flashback/dream sequence involving his abusive mother. 

Bones 7x4 Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan remember his deceased father, and he lets out a cute little silent tear. 

Antichrist The character only listed as He (Willem Dafoe) at his young child's funeral. (This movie is infamous for several things I won't list, and none of them happen here. Here is just two parents grieving in a more healthy way.)

IT Chapter Two Richie (Bill Hader) grieves the loss of his dear friend for whom he'd had unspoken feelings.

I will be adding more. Feel free to post your own here, just make sure the scene contains male crying and the link is accompanied by some identifying info (the actor name or the show or movie, stuff like that) in the post.

Hi Phoebe. Thanks for sharing all these links, but the last 3 aren't working( at least for me).

But great finds, please keep them coming.

Happiness can be found,  even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

Re: Male actors crying

More links as promised, though later than I intended.

Bill Skarsgard in Battlecreek

Bill Pullman in The Sinner

Miles Robbins (pretty son of Tim Robbins) cries a little multiple times in Daniel Isn't Real
(in this third one, he's not actually crying anymore because he's done an emotional 360, while a tear is still slowly rolling down his face)

Jason Momoa in Frontier (note that in this one, he's quite bloody with several wounds, as he's in captivity and has recently been tortured, though the physical torture isn't currently happening. His captor describes murdering Jason's wife and child, causing him to cry and sob and even scream in grief. It's intense stuff.  It's a little discordant because he is not wearing any shirt.)

Heath Ledger in Candy, having realized the woman he loves is no good for him

Anson Mount in Hell on Wheels, burying his best friend after having had to kill him. He breaks down like he has forgotten how to cry and is learning how all over again: quietly at first, gradually becoming less and less quiet as the unfettered grief overtakes him, until he's positively wailing. I find this scene just wrenching to watch.

Re: Male actors crying

Hi Phoebe.  Thanks again for sharing. Unfortunately the last link doesn't work, it says I have to ask permission to view.  Just letting you know.

But again, thanks so much I haven't seen most of these before.

Re: Male actors crying

I fixed it so it hopefully works now. I check to see if it's viewable by anyone with a link before posting a link, but I def miss some so I appreciate the heads-up. I want everyone who wants to see it be able to see it.

Re: Male actors crying

Loved all of these scenes!  Do you guys ever go through phases where you can't get enough of these? Thanks where I am now and I love this thread!

" do not cry. They will do anything BUT cry. They stop themselves crying. And eventually they do cry if it is bad enough. So that's how you know with a man how bad it is for him. Because he would've stopped himself...Men always cry like that. They don't cry and in the end they do and if they do then it's overwhelming." ~Michael Caine
