Even if an actor is stuck in one image, this does not at all indicate a low level of his skill. On the contrary, fulfilling one hypostasis for a long time, a person becomes very sophisticated in his business.

Matt Damon

Matt Damon. "Good Will Hunting"

For the first time about Matt Damone spoke loudly after the role Will Hunting in a famous painting 1997 year… His character is a simple guy with high intelligence and independent thinking, trying to cope with inner demons. No one then could have thought that Damon will have to embody such images throughout their career.

Over time, heroes Matt have become more complex – these are not just “smart people”, but talented provocateurs and gray cardinals… However, the essence remains the same, Damon is already over 50, but even now he is held hostage by Will Hunting.

Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel. "Always say yes"

Zoey has established herself as responsive freak with his own special outlook on life. Her characters are moderately eccentric, self-sufficient and open new horizons for the main characters of the tape.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger. "Terminator"

Everyone knows that Arnold, first of all – a hero of action movies. Sure, Schwarzenegger put experiments on his career, but the actor’s dramatic and comedic roles did not reach the mass audience.

Tom Cruise. "mission Impossible"

Characters (edit) Tom Cruise almost always face large-scale and serious challenges… They have to run a lot, fight opponents in atypical scenery and manage to defuse bombs at the last second. However, it cannot be said that Tom gravitated towards action films at the dawn of his career.

After the release of the paintings “Rain Man” and “Vanilla Sky” there was a deceptive impression that in the person of Cruise the cinema received a talented all-rounder. However, big awards bypassed Tom and he completely switched to box-office action films.

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler. "Shoemaker"

When you turn on a comedy with Adam Sandler, you need to prepare your ears for low-grade humor and a whole cascade of vulgarities. The actor knows how to be touching and has a certain dramatic talent, but stubbornly continues to act in passing projects.

When Sandler was young, the audience was sympathetic to his role. but Adam met maturity, and the characters of the actor’s characters remained unchanged – all the same beached loserswho deserve more.

Hugh grant. "Bridget Jones's Diary"

Main role Hugh Grant – this is “Romcoms”where he plays Infinitely in love romance with a slightly surprised expression on his face. The actor’s characters are characterized by participation in love triangles and plans to seduce the fair sex.

The paintings brought Grant special popularity. “Diary of Bridget Jones” and “Four weddings and one funeral”, but in other films, Hugh also does not change his image. Now the English heartthrob is more 60 years and he gradually begins to try himself in slightly different roles – only time will tell if Grant will be able to mark the later stage of his career with a successful change of role.


Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson. "Hostage 2"

It’s time to talk about another “pop” action hero who gained popularity in adulthood. Unremarkable appearance Liam allowed him to enter a completely unexpected the image of an exemplary family man… However, the character experiences righteous rage when the “bad guys” offend his loved ones and is ready to go to any lengths to take revenge on the intruders.

We know heroes today Neeson such, but before he preferred to play dramatic roles, which is only worth “Schindler’s list”… However, Liam has gradually turned into an action hero and seems to be completely stuck in this image.

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp. "Alice in Wonderland"

Today Johnny Depp Is one of the most revered Hollywood actors. However, if we face it, it becomes clear that most of the images that the actor embodies on the screen are similar to each other. Typical Depp character – eccentric eccentric in fabulous scenery, striking others with his genius.

It is curious that at the dawn of a career Johnny was considered the person who can play absolutely any hero. Now the situation is developing in such a way that the most high-profile roles of the actor are associated with the world of fantasy, and this deprives us of the pleasure of seeing him in other images.
