Often, it’s the same actors who receive not only all of the significant roles, but also major awards in the field of cinema and the lion’s share of popularity. We undoubtedly love them, but sometimes their equally talented colleagues remain in the shadows of the top stars. Let’s remember the actors and actresses who act brilliantly in movies but somehow do not receive much attention. And at the end of the article, we decided to be frank and tell you which screen stars our authors adore. Some of them have been unfairly overlooked despite their dazzling talent, while others are in high demand but are viewed with skepticism for some reason.
Sometimes actors and actresses fail to live up to what is expected of them when playing a character, and neither the critics nor the public can let it go. Some are even nominated for worst performance or fail to fill the shoes of the character they played. Here is a list of performances that were not well received by the public at large.
It might be hard to believe that some of our favorite actors could star in movies for minutes or even in only one scene. However, believe it or not, they have.

There are some actors who we associate with roles they played when they were really young, so they are always children in our minds. However, time flies fast, and now some of these actors are about to turn 30 years old. Let’s see how much they’ve changed from the images we have of them in our heads.
In a fast-paced and exhilarating business, it’s a whirlwind being an A-lister in showbiz. So it totally makes sense when celebs stick to each other through thick and thin and forge strong friendships over the years. They help bring out their best selves in their craft by being there for each other in the long run.
Sometimes even the strongest chemistry between characters isn’t enough to encourage writers to make them a couple. They might be meant to stay friends, or it’s an “evil” trick to maintain the audience’s interest and spark heated debates between fans. We picked the most shipped couples that never happened but that people really wanted to see.
The association between the characters and the actors who play them can get pretty strong. For one, we can’t imagine Jack from Titanic being portrayed by anyone but Leonardo DiCaprio. But not all actors, including Leo himself, got cast for the role they ended up playing with ease, and we could’ve lived in an entirely different timeline today had they been turned down.
Baddies always catch our attention, and sometimes, we even sympathize with the best Marvel and MCU villains.

Many of us have been known to exaggerate our skills or even know people who’ve done it in order to get a job, be the center of attention or surprise someone. This applies to everyone.

At 39, Chris Hemsworth seems to have it all: dashing good looks, a well-respected career as one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and a loving wife and 3 adorable kids.

Some celebrities, such as Jamie Lee Curtis and Anne Hathaway, were privileged to be given leading roles in their debut films. Although, it’s not so simple for many stars, as the majority of them must play several minor roles before achieving fame. However, remembering these seemingly little efforts is important because they led to their current success.
At this point, there are so many memorable fictional characters that we’ve lost count. Many of those characters have been portrayed by incredible actors, and some not by one, but multiple.

It can take a long time to establish yourself as a great actor in Hollywood. So it’s easy to wonder how many of our favorite actors got their start.

We fall in love with actors because of their work on a specific movie or TV series. When it comes to Marvel’s movie actors, it’s also their good looks that are captivating. And, in a parallel universe, they could be just as captivating if they were born the opposite gender.
There are movies and series that we remember, even many years after watching them. Their plots, characters, and images all come together so that as soon as we see them, they become our favorite films. That’s why they become classics, cult series, and films that arouse not only interest but also the unconditional support and fervor of the public. And it’s this same audience that enjoys watching them as much as they love looking for winks, clues, secrets, and hidden messages. And, of course, they find them all.

Ah! How can one not sigh when thinking about the superheroes of Marvel and DC!

But some of them manage to transform in such an amazing manner that their characters become absolutely impossible to forget. And despite their transformations into such evil characters, these actors still manage to stay incredibly charming.
Characters become iconic often because of the actors that portrayed them. This is why it’s so hard to imagine someone else playing our favorite characters. At the same time, even famous actors come to castings and fail them, so the roles go to someone else. Or, they might even do a great job but still not get the part. It’s a hard job.
When choosing a movie to watch, we often rely on the ratings, recommendations from friends, or the number of awards the movie received. But even a collective point of view from people who are considered high authorities or big cinema lovers doesn’t guarantee that you will like a movie. And this is actually understandable since art itself is quite subjective and films that seem to be indisputable masterpieces for some are examples of sheer mediocrity for others.
The history of cinema can be seen from many different angles. You can focus on the classics, the highest-grossing films, productions with the most awards, or those with the most significant performances...

And when it comes to the newer actors, you may have seen them on Netflix, but not know what their names are, like Noah Centineo or Jacob Elordi.
