"Actors, like it or not, their voices carry deeply into the culture: people look towards them for attitudes, for right or wrong, and today, the mainstream media doesn't really balance the unheard."Mark Alan Ruffalo (born November 22, 1967) is an American actor, director, producer and screenwriter.
He appeared in:
- The Dentist
- You Can Count On Me
- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
- 13 Going on 30
- The Brothers Bloom

- Carpet of Virility: His chest hair is well-known.
- Granola Guy: Famous for his political activism towards global warming and the environment in general. His official tumblr is 90% environmental activism and 10% bemused responses to squeeing fangirls (or responses to other posts, whereupon those responses make fangirls squee). As of 2016 he is deeply involved in the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation Water Protector movement to stop the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline from running through Indian land. (He is not Native himself but Italian/French Canadian.) Here he is explaining what is happening and why he is involved. More here and here.
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": His fanboying over Paul Rudd is now well-known.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech : His Tumblr dressing-down of the "I Am Not A Feminist" Internet trend.
- Unkempt Beauty: As many a film review has pointed out, nobody pulls off the rumpled-curls-and-bedroom-eyes aesthetic quite like this man.
- V-Sign: Frequently does it in his photos.
