No one can magically become an international movie star overnight. Actors have to go through many roles on the way to fame and recognition. If you study the filmography of some famous actors and actresses, you may find films that you never expected to see them in.
In Pictolic, we decided to look back at the early roles of some movie stars, where you can see them in an unexpected light.
1. Alan Rickman.
Alan Rickman is beloved by audiences for his roles in Die Hard, Sense and Sensibility, and the Harry Potter films. But his first role was the role of Tybalt in the film adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
2. Keanu Reeves.
Dangerous Liaisons (1988), an adaptation of the novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, brought together a remarkable cast of many famous actors. Among them was Keanu Reeves, who played a music teacher in love with the character played by Uma Thurman.
3. Sarah Jessica Parker.
Long before the actress landed her starring role as young writer Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, she was able to play a wide variety of characters. For example, Parker played a schoolgirl in Girls Want to Have Fun whose father forbade her to dance.
4. Tom Hardy.
Very few people remember Tom Hardy appearing in a small role in the famous film, Marie Antoinette. His character's name was Romont.
5. Lisa Kudrow.
Many people know Lisa Kudrow for her famous role as Phoebe Buffy in Friends. But you can see her in a completely different light when she played the role of a strict lady in The Opposite of Sex (1997).
6. Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie has played many bright characters in her acting career, and almost all of them emphasized her femininity and beauty. But her role as a young, daring hacker in Hackers deserves special attention.
7. Jim Carrey.
Jim Carrey is known to many as a comedian. But at one time he played a young vampire in the fantastic comedy Once Bitten.
8 Josh Hartnett
You can see a young Josh Hartnet with a very unusual haircut in the famous film The Virgin Suicides. He played the role of a popular high school student and the main character's romantic interest.
9 Antonio Banderas
We are used to the idea that Antonio Banderas is one of the main heartthrobs of the film world. But in the movie Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, we can see him in a completely different light, as an ordinary guy.
10 Cillian Murphy
In the cult film Cold Mountain, you can see Cillian Murphy in a cameo role. It was his first job in Hollywood. His character's name was Bardolph.
