The Top 15 Most Badass Celebrities



Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen is one of those rare unicorns who can pull off being a softie and a badass simultaneously. On the one hand, he writes poetry, makes abstract art, and is a prolific songwriter. On the other, he's Aragorn. No, we mean, in real life too. Aragorn had an otherworldly connection with his horse, Brego; Viggo bonded so much with the steed playing Brego that he bought him after LOTR wrapped, and they are now living happily ever after. Also, you know how in Fellowship of the Ring, that giant orc that killed Boromir throws a knife at Viggo's head, and Viggo deflects it with his sword? NOT STAGED. Real life. The orc guy slipped up and actually threw a boni fide dagger at Viggo's face. Good thing Viggo is Aragorn for real. He bows for NO ONE. (Okay, except hobbits, occasionally).
