Eric Bana Heats Up the Silver Screen

Sugardaddy Eric Bana Entertains Us From Troy to Star Trek

Eric Bana has been on most mama's radars since they saw him in Black Hawk Down. But, many did a double as the actor strutted around ancient Greece in Troy. Any daddy that can steal a scene from a shirtless Brad Pitt makes a definite impression.

A man of a thousand accents – he's done American, Israeli, and German to name a few – Bana is set to be a fixture on the silver screen this Summer, having hit box office gold as Nero in Star Trek last weekend and costarring with Rachel McAdams in The Time Traveler's Wife in a few months. The Aussie actor and comedian also recently finished filming Judd Apatow's latest comedy, Funny People with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen.

Married to his wife of 12 years Rebecca Gleeson, Bana has limited his Hollywood film work in order to spend time at home in Australia with his children – Klaus, 10, and Sophia, 8. While in the land down under, the father of two has been an outspoken advocate for several children's charities including the Australian Childhood Foundation and the Motorcycle Riders Association Toy Run. A devoted fan of football and motor racing, Bana enjoys living life to its fullest, which led his Munich director Steven Speilberg to call him "a very gentle soul with a tremendous sense of humor. He's a gentle giant."
