14 Celebrities Secretly Hidden in Your Favorite Movies
We can watch our favorite movies over and over again, but there are still many details we don’t notice. Sometimes it can be difficult to spot world-famous actors in films as they are often hidden behind lots of makeup or not in plain sight.
We at Bright Side compiled a list of celebrities you didn’t know were in the movies you’ve already seen.
Millions have watched the teen comedy Eurotrip, yet few know the skinhead singer who performed "Scotty Doesn’t Know" is the famous actor Matt Damon.
Men in Black II
The King of Pop played the role of agent M in the sequel to the famous movie Men in Black. However, only a few noticed.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Daniel Craig, James Bond himself, was one of the stormtroopers guarding Rey on the Starkiller Base.
Die Another Day
Madonna not only performed the song for the James Bond movie Die Another Day but also appeared in a small role portraying a fencing instructor. However, critics found her role unconvincing, and she was awarded the "Golden Raspberry."
At the beginning of the film, a poor passenger of the ship is getting his beard combed for lice. The role of this man was performed by the director, James Cameron.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Iggy Pop, the legendary rock musician, is hardly recognizable under all that makeup in the continuation of the world-famous Star Trek movies.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Steven Spielberg always liked to invite famous actors to perform in his films. However, after filming E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, he thought that the appearance of Harrison Ford might distract viewers from the main plot and decided to cut the scene featuring him. However, you can still see the actor from the back in one of the scenes. Harrison played the principal at Elliott’s school.
Catch Me If You Can
The film is about the life of former check forger and impostor Frank Abagnale. Frank played the role of a policeman in this movie and handcuffed the young version of himself.
