Steve McQueen may have been one of the coolest guys of the 20th century and an ace driver, but that doesn't mean he wasn't pulled over by the police on multiple occasions. In 1972, McQueen was arrested for driving under the influence while in Anchorage, Alaska. Apparently he was speeding through the city in a rented Oldsmobile Toronado.

When McQueen was pulled over and asked to walk down the white line during his sobriety test he did a full somersault and was almost immediately arrested. McQueen didn't hold a grudge, in fact he signed autographs for everyone at the station while he was still in handcuffs. After posting bail he got the heck out of town and was convicted for reckless driving in absentia.

Pictured here with his second wife, Jill Ireland, Charles Bronson was a serious man's man. His early life was wracked with poverty. He grew up in coal country and was so broke that he often had to wear his sister's clothing to school. This not only instilled in him a sense that he needed to work, but it made him tough.

His early acting career was somewhat fruitless, with his big break coming when he was 39 years old and received a role in The Magnificent Seven. Eight years later, Bronson married Jill Ireland and formed one of the most lasting relationships in Hollywood. The couple co-starred in a series of films together, and often drove to the location with their children to make sure that the family stayed together.

When not on set the couple disappeared to Vermont where Ireland raised horses and trained their daughter, Zuleika, to follow in her footsteps.
