Sean Bean stabbed in a barfight defending Playboy Bunny's honor

Yell at me all you want for this not being specifically movie related, but I figured you'd rather hear this excellent story than have me write about some new film that just got greenlit about CGI dogs and cats hunting ghosts.

You probably best know Sean Bean for his role in LORD OF THE RINGS, but recently he's returned to the genre for the lead role in HBO's Game of Thrones. But this story shows that he doesn't just play the badass hero, he is one.

The incident kicked off when the 52-year-old Bean and 22-year-old Playboy bunny April Summers (real name Nadia Foster) went outside Camden's Hill Bar and Brasserie to smoke. A passerby spotted the duo (or at least one half of the duo) and began making lewd comments, leading Bean to confront the big talker.

All was seemingly well until the stranger returned later on, at which point a scuffle broke out, and Bean was reportedly punched in the face, causing a bruise over his eye, and stabbed in the arm with broken glass.

Getting into a barfight defending a Playboy Bunny (and seriously, Google her) when you're 52? Badass enough. But what happens next is what makes the story.

Despite his wounds, Bean refused any medical attention and opted not to go to a hospital. Instead, the actor accepted a first aid kit from the bar staff, then ordered another drink.

I liked him before, but I've got a newfound respect for the man now. I hope I'm half as awesome at his age.

Extra Tidbit: Perhaps he was a bit testy because of this week's Game of Thrones?
