Sean Bean OK after Bar Confrontation

Actor Sean Bean, who played Boromir in LOTR, was apparently in a bar brawl where he was stabbed with a piece of glass! True to his rugged characters, there were no major injuries and Sean seemingly continued to have a pint! Thanks to Ringer Irfon for the heads up:
He became known to millions as the rugged, hero soldier in historical drama Sharpe.

And now actor Sean Bean has proven once and for all that his tough-guy image is not just fictional.

The Daily Mail has learned that Bean was ‘stabbed’ in the arm following a row over a beautiful young model.

What's he doing fighting over women at his age?

Seriously. I'm glad he's not badly hurt, but isn't he a little old for bar fights?

He was defending her honor...

... I think chivalry is timeless, don't you?

Besides, he was the one who was attacked, not the other way around.

I dunno.

I read the article and it says that after the guy made stupid comments, SB followed him down the road to challenge him.

What happened to just ignoring it and letting it go?

Do you feel that Gimli is out of control

if he stands ready to defend Galadriel at the drop of a hat?

Some men cannot stand or let lie an act of belligerent disrespect, especially toward a woman.

Sean probably had that quiet moment and decided he couldn't let it go. It may have been foolish in some respects but my respect for him went way up.

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

I did think it was a bit much, yes.

Especially to challenge Eomer to a sword/axe fight over it.

Anyway, I can defend my own honor, thank you. I don't need a bunch of men coming to blows and getting violent over it.

Ha!

But seriously, a cold stare is all that foolish insults deserve. And if Mr. Smartmouth wants to make more out of it, that's what the authorities are for.

I know someone who left England

because he wanted to get away from a lifestyle that meant going to the local every single night and, usually, getting into a fight.

Agreed!

But imagine the pressure from all those millions of years of evolution when this happens:


Quote
The row began when Mr Bean, 52, and April Summers - a glamour model who is 30 years his junior who had gone to the bar with him - were standing outside, having a cigarette...

According to witnesses, a passer-by then made lewd comments about Miss Summers...


If she is 'with' him in any sense, it may have been a struggle for him not to be seen to act as her defender. Some women, I'm sure, would specifically expect it, and be... let's say 'upset'... if such support weren't forthcoming.

People are all (although some more than others) slaves to our genetic heritage! Smile

perhaps he wasn't completely sober

... and alcohol does tend to make one lose one's inhibitions a bit. (I don't mean to imply that he was drunk, although of course we don't know that!) Also, considering where he grew up, he might have a different view of how to defend a lady (if 'lady' is the right word in this case Evil ). Lady or not, I daresay my 'cavewoman instincts' might lead me to expect my escort to defend me, too, although the more sophisticated and trying-to-be-a-peaceable Buddhist me would tend to just walk away and ask my escort to let it go. Hard for us to say --- we weren't there.

But where did that piece of glass come from?

'Goodness gracious, you really are a messie!' 'Oh no, I'm not, these are all just mathoms...'

Sean Bean is one awesome dude.

He's willing to defend his lady, even if it gets him in trouble. It would be pretty hard to just walk away when someone is talking about your special lady friend.
Reminds me of the lyrics to that song "This Day We Fight!" by Megadeth (which is coincidentally about LotR)

"No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tomorrow I may lay down and die
But not this day, this day we fight!"

"I warn you, if you bore me, I shall take my revenge"
--J.R.R. Tolkien

he's dating her

she "models" topless. You all know I love his looks and his acting, but I'm afraid the man himself is a yob.

Which is exactly why they passed laws outlawing duelling.

Because apparently guys aren't capable of behaving themselves on their own.

I mean, seriously, what was SB going to tell the guy?

He's Probably

He is likely upset that his best gig since lotr is over and Ned Stark as he is likely had enough of this Lannister looking perv.

I would like to add...

That "news" articles in the Daily Mail probably contained more than a little embellishment.

I am sure there is a tiny grain of truth in that article somewhere, but, as for what they said actually happened, I am sure it was largely invention. The Daily Mail are famous for it over here. Wink

I think my friend

was from a lower-class neighborhood and foresaw a preordained life he didn't want. So he emigrated. And now he builds lovely things out of wood and is happy.

But also wins a lot of money playing pool in the local . . .
