7. Jean-Claude Van Damme – Splits

This one is pretty simple. The Muscles from Brussels might not be the most prolific action star out there, but he does have a pretty weird trademark: he can’t stop doing the splits.

At every opportunity, this hard-fighting, hard-kicking actor has his legs spread wide – whether it’s flat to the ground or up in the air, whether it’s mid-fight or while dancing with the ladies, JCVD is always ready to risk horrendous groin strain in order to live up to this weird (yet impressive) trademark.

He also bust it out again a few years back in an advertisement for Volvo, performing the splits between two moving trucks, which is both truly incredible and absolutely unnecessary.

As he gets older, the question has become: will Van Damme ever stop doing the splits? When will his groin finally give up and tear? Hopefully he retires the move before he causes lasting damage to himself, although it doesn’t seem likely to happen any time soon.
