The two actors, Jason and Vinnie, have been close friends since working together on the popular crime movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels back in 1998. During the premiere of their latest film, Vinnie revealed that he was there as Jason’s guest for the night. However, his date, Rosie, had given him strict instructions to make sure that Jason does not stay out too late. So, Vinnie took it upon himself to ensure that they had a good time without getting carried away. After the event, the two went to dine at popular celebrity spot The Ivy.

Bromance: Vinnie had told reporters at the premiere in London that he was under strict orders from Jason's girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to look after her beau

Vinnie shared with the press at the London premiere that he was tasked by Jason’s girlfriend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, to take care of her partner. The two seem to share a close bond as friends, or shall we say, bromance.

The two celebrities took a moment to appreciate their fans, signing autographs for them outside of a popular celebrity hotspot. Afterwards, they continued their night at the film’s after party in DSTRKT club, where they were joined by the director of the blockbuster, Sylvester Stallone, as well as other cast members including Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes. These two have been good friends ever since they starred in Guy Ritchie’s gangster movie, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and have acted alongside each other multiple times, such as in Mean Machine and Snatch.

Hats off: Alongside their smart suits, Jason and Vinnie now have matching shaven heads

Kudos to Jason and Vinnie who have decided to sport matching shaven heads that complement their smart suits. These guys have been through some rough times, like the time their truck plummeted 60ft into the Black Sea and got impaled. Thankfully, they had taken the doors off beforehand. If anyone else had been in that truck, they would have drowned due to their heavy boots and gun belts. But, thanks to Jason’s exceptional diving skills, they managed to escape. In other news, Rosie, who is a model, has expressed gratitude towards her ruggedly handsome partner for keeping her grounded in the hustle-bustle of Los Angeles.
