But when actors take part in films based on real events and have to play real people, things can get even harder.

Hollywood has presented us with many legendary onscreen romances like the ones between Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind, Jack and Rose from Titanic, Joel Barish and Clementine Kruczynski from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and many more.

It might be difficult to imagine our favorite movie characters played by other actors.

That’s why the difficulties of making a choice, as well as a lot of competition, are also present in the film industry.
