(just for fun) butch film icons

OK... so I had just watched Aliens for the first time in many years, and a friend and I were talking about how Sigorney Weaver kicked ass, & blah blah... but what really made that movie special for me was Jenette Goldstein's character:

Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?

No. Have you?

Not bad for 1986... of course, she had to die. Them's the breaks. At least it was heroic. She was played as likeable, in an arrogant Marine ball-busting sort of way, but you had to love her. At least I did. Those ARMS...

So, who are your butch cinema icons? (I'm talking about CHARACTERS, not actors, but go nuts.) Male, female, or otherwise... and since I already exhausted my rant about why there are so few butches on the silver screen (I'll spare you - it all came down to DUH), someone else can take up the slack there.
