Most actors have some trait that they call ‘mine’. It may be a signature prop, or a move, or a look, or a saying. These become famous because they do it in a special way, and they become famous because they are consistent in doing it. Over time, our subconscious accepts that as a part of them, even if someone else might find it completely ridiculous.
Well, let’s take a look. These 10 actors play characters who are doing the same thing in almost every movie:
1. Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is seen wielding guns, knives, swords, and the like in many of her films. For her role in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, she learned the art of weaponry from British special forces. She has then used it in other movies like Salt, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and the like.
2. Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey started as a rom-com actor in Hollywood. But he quickly shifted into serious roles that gave him much respect and the awards he so deserves. But, since his starting roles, he is used to flaunting his abs, which he did recently on Magic Mike.
3. Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz has never been shy of displaying her taut and fit body. Since she was 20, she has had roles that put her in her underwear for long shots, and she still does them at 42. For example, Bad Teacher.
4. Jennifer Aniston
Since her role in Friends, Jennifer Aniston has been associated with a look of her, that involves the very special Rachel hairdo. This has been with her over several movies, like Just Go With It, Horrible Bosses and We’re The Millers.
5. Jean Claude Van Damme
Jean Claude Van Damme is known for his world-renowned splits, that he performs in his action movies. And he has been doing that since the 70s.
6. Ryan Gosling
The heartthrob of most humans all over the world, Ryan Gosling is famous for a cigarette dangling in between his lips. Now, while he may have not done it in every single movie, if one were to go to his IMDB page, they would find a lot of movies where he did smoke once.
7. Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore is famous for being seen with a telephone in most of her movies. And that might actually be elusive, as most of us wouldn’t be focusing on that.
8. John Travolta
He might not have the acting cajones, but John Travolta is an amazing dancer. First displayed on Saturday Night Fever, his dancing skills has blessed the screen in movies like Pulp Fiction.
9. Edward Norton
Edward Norton is peculiar, in that he wears a white tank top in most of his movies. This particular piece of apparel might actually help him get into the role. For example, American History X, and Fight Club.
10. Tom Cruise
One of the biggest action stars on the planet obviously would have something related to action. His quirk is the cuts and bruises that he gets as props. And after careful scrutiny, one would find that most of his cuts and bruises are towards the right cheek and nose, while his left part remains unhurt.
