PICTURE THIS: The sprinter strikes a cool pose for the cameras.
Are Olympic hero Usain Bolt and his fave Hollywood actor Jason Statham now the best of pals? The two stars were photographed having a blast together on the red carpet at Monday’s British premiere of Statham’s latest movie, the action blockbuster The Expendables 2. The star-packed premiere was held at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square.
Not surprisingly, the London triple gold-medallist (who later tweeted a pic of himself and Statham at the event) was the main attraction, even in the presence of the biggest action stars on the planet. According to MSN UK, “The likes of Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme were there, but all eyes were on Bolt.”
Meantime, in the wake of his extraordinary stint at the London Games, Bolt now turns his attention to the Diamond League meets, including the big one – the Athletissima meeting in Switzerland, on August 23. Bolt will mark his 26th birthday on Tuesday, August 21.
ON POINT: Bolt and Statham doing the most famous pose in all of sports.
