When Grown Men Cry

I found the photos below at another blog. Although I left off the Robert Downey Jr. one, because it's kinda awkward.
The photographer, Sam Taylor-Wood, said of these photos,
"Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera, but others found it really difficult. People can decide for themselves which they think are the authentic tears and which they think are fake. It's about the idea of taking these big, masculine men and showing a different side."
I've been thinking a lot lately about confession, honesty and authenticity. I'm not great at being vulnerable but I certainly don't want to become so good at just acting out false intimacy either.
That's what I was thinking as I saw these photos.
