Are you a Hollywood film director? Are you looking to senselessly destroy an army of bad guys but can only afford to pay one actor? There's a good chance you're covered. Jason Statham is a rock hard man, it's that simple. He's starred in a range of action films from The Transporter to Crank, with over 40 other productions under his belt grossing a combined total in excess of $1 billion. Not bad for someone who used to jump off things in tiny speedos for a living... Since his debut in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), the hard man's hard man has earned himself a rugged reputation and clawed his way into The Expendables film series, which has become like an awards ceremony to celebrate the human tanks of this world. But there's a side to Statham that you might not expect. Ever since he chose to follow his own path, rather than to settle into his father's market stall business, the 47-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength and quite literally made a big splash in the process. But his career has taken some odd twists and turns along the way. So without any further ado, here are 15 things you (probably) didn't know about Jason Statham.
