A Hollywood ‘s age does not matter. Or at least so one would say to look at the success of the new generation of actors, all under 30 years old. Well known names (to name just one Jennifer Lawrence) or not, but faces in any case easily identifiable with the protagonists of very successful films of recent years.
A selection like this, which tries to be inclusive of all possible scenarios and not too tied to Oscar or box office, which seems to be dictated by the paths and choices of the actors as well as by individual interpretations, could hardly satisfy everyone. The moral, beautiful is that it finally rewards characters like Tilda Swinton and Willem Dafoe, or Alfre Woodward, it brings out talents even of a certain age who have never been kissed that much by the flashes despite the Oscar-winning films and confirms some of the best performers of the new generation. But let’s examine the ranking of the best actors of the new millennium in detail.
Read Below and find out who are the most famous actors and singers of all time.
A brief history of cinema
The film, in its history, has gone through different phases and periods, which led from the first rudimentary “experiments” of the Lumière brothers to modern film digital, full of special effects mainly made with computer graphics.
The history of cinema is dotted with small and large technical inventions. In this field too, progress has never actually stopped, and has seen some epochal turning points, such as the transition from silent to sound, from black and white to color, from square to panoramic screen and from analogue to digital film. As a consequence of this rapid technological development that took place in over 120 years, the degree of specialization of the workers engaged on the sets has increased, and new professional figures have been created.
The birth of films
In 1877 the science teacher and photographer Charles-Émile Reynaud created and patented his optical game, the Praxinoscope where he himself designs moving, funny or poetic miniatures. In 1878 he presented a subsequent evolution, the praxinoscope theater , placing a screen before it glass to the carousel of mirrors. The new tool, suitable for collective use, allows moving images to be superimposed on a series of interchangeable backgrounds. The Praxinoscope immediately met the favor of the public and the latest model he designed also allows the projection of the drawings on a small screen; as Reynaud thinks, his art reaches its peak here in the representation of the “magic effect” of luminous lanterns. But, like all “parlor games”, his subjects are too short: the gestures, the pirouettes, the transformations last only a second. In 1892, a year after Edison’s first films whose duration is slightly longer, Reynaud embarked on the fabrication of an ambitious project that had haunted him for at least fifteen years.
The most famous actors from the 80s
The 80s were about voluminous and eccentric hairstyles, very pronounced make-up (see ostentatious), the rise of Michael Jackson and the start of kitsch but deliciously addictive TV series. But the 80s are also the actors, those who appeared in the rooms of young women on glossy paper and who caused collective hysteria as soon as they walked the slightest red carpet. Suffice to say quite simply that they represented the very fantasy of the fairer sex. Around the 80s, the world of cinema saw many actresses, each as sublime as the next. Many would no doubt like to know what has become of them over time.
The ’80s Harrison Ford is a must-have. Stack between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the irresistible Han Solo from Star Wars represents the bad boy we want to seduce. Obviously, during the 80’s Harrison also established himself in the skin of Indiana Jones whose whip is still legendary today, but also in the masterpiece Blade Runner, which will be entitled to a sequel to the cinema in 2017.
The star of the late 80s, there’s no denying it, it was him. Already because he was the only person in the world to whom we could forgive this haircut, but also because he perfectly embodied the naughty boy from La Fête A la Maison, with whom we dreamed of having sex.
The man with the legendary mustache is a true emblem of the small screen. In the 1980s, it was in the Magnum series that he stood out and established himself as a must-have. Since then, it is always in the series that the actor shines since we will have seen him in Friends, Las Vegas or even Blue Bloods.
The Mel Gibson Lethal Weapon era was something. We cannot say the opposite. Especially since in the 80’s, the crazy Hollywood actor was also on the poster of a legendary trilogy, recently taken to the cinema: Mad Max. And yes, he was definitely completely Mad, Mel, back then.
He’s probably the one that hurts us the most when we see his photos in the 80s, compared to today. Among his filmography of the time, we especially remember 9 ½ weeks, the Irishman or Johnny Belle Gueule, who bore his name well… Formerly.
The handyman of Madame est Servie is still the fantasy of these ladies today. The former boxer with the pronounced jaw was also in the 80s the star of a television series much less known in France but adored in the United States: Taxi with Dany Devito.
Morgan Fairchild is one of the most famous actresses of the 80s. Since childhood, she has always been passionate about cinema and it is thanks to her talent that she has managed to make her passion her work.
Raquel Welch whose real name is Jo Raquel Tejada is a very famous singer and actress of the 80s. Very early on, she developed a taste for dance and comedy. Her beauty and charm also allowed her to win several beauty contests in her youth.
Kelly Le Brock
Kelly Le Brock could only count on herself to build her career. It is thanks to her talent and her perseverance that she has managed to become one of the icons of cinema. For her debut, she starred in a romantic comedy called “The Girl in Red”.
The film allowed her to make herself known and gradually gain roles until she became an essential actress of the time. The actress hasn’t been in a movie for years, but her beaming smile and gorgeous eyes are still with her.
Among the most beautiful and famous actresses of the 1980s is Lisa Whelchel. Endowed with a unique beauty, the actress has rarely gone unnoticed in her films. She became known to the general public thanks to the American series “The Facts of Life” or “Funny Life” in which she played Blair Warner.
One cannot allude to famous actresses of the 80s without quoting Jodie Foster . She became known to the general public very early on thanks to the film “Napoleon and Samantha”. She also appeared in “Tom Sawyer” and “Alice is no longer here” but it is by doing “Taxi Driver” that her career took on a whole new dimension.
American actress and screenwriter Carrie Fisher flies the screen in the first Star Wars film. Her portrayal of Princess Leia in the terrible intergalactic struggle propels her to the rank of international star. She reprized this role in The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars, Episode IV (1983). Unfortunately, her drug and alcohol problems forced her out of public life in the mid-1980s. However, she took part in a few films after that, such as Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), When Harry Met Sally (1989) and Austin Powers (1997).
Born in New York, Andrew McCarthy is part actor, director, screenwriter and producer. He made his debut in Hollywood in the 1980s. He is notably known for his roles in the films St. Elmo’s Fire (1985) and Pretty in Pink (1986), then Mannequin and Less Than Zero in 1987, or even Fresh Horses and Kansas, in 1988. His career continued through the 1990s, during which they shot numerous films and participated in a few productions on Broadway.
The most famous singers from the 80s
The 80s were undoubtedly the decade of pop stars: for the first time in the history of music, in fact, groups and even better than single singers managed to place tens of millions of records staging not only their voices or their melodies, but also their faces, the way they danced, their hairstyles, their clothes.
Dominating the list is, without fear of denial, Michael Jackson, the true and indisputable king of the decade. And he does so with minimal effort, as in that time frame he only released two albums, Thriller in 1982 and Bad in 1987 (as well as some minor compilations, released by Motown with old material to try to ride the wave of success).
He made his debut as a soloist in 1972, at the age of fourteen, also climbing the charts in this case, but it was only at the end of the 70s that his name became important on a global level and no longer only in the field of black music.
Certainly lower than that of Michael Jackson as regards the single albums, but all in all comparable for the impact left on the decade is also the story of Madonna, the second best-selling singer of the 80s, strong – between studio albums and others collateral releases – of more than 80 million records placed between 1980 and 1989.
After the stars of the American song, let’s move briefly to Great Britain to talk about Phil Collins, an artist who in the 80s was already an expert for his long militancy in Genesis, but who in that decade saw his quotations as a solo performer take off, although by recording excellent sales figures also with his band, as we have been able to highlight elsewhere.
If the first three positions of our ranking were all in all rather obvious, the attribution of the last two available places was less clear, for which artists of the caliber of Bruce Springsteen, Prince and Lionel Richie, who remained out for a few, also compared. millions of copies.
In fifth place, with around 45 million albums sold in the 1980s, we find Whitney Houston, the woman who most of all managed to rival the Madonna star in that decade, offering an R&B counterpart to Italian-American pop. Born in 1963, she was the youngest among the interpreters of our five, but like Michael Jackson she left too soon, disappeared in 2012, perhaps a victim of her own success.
Lionel Richie also came from soul music and funk, which he had practiced in the 1970s as the leader of the Commodores. At the beginning of the 80s, however, sensing the change of times he decided to pursue a solo career, becoming one of the most successful singers of the decade. Some of his songs, in fact, have become symbols of that period. Think for example of Endless Love, performed in a duet with Diana Ross, or All Night Long, or even Say You, Say Me, which even won an Oscar.
Prince, born Prince Roger Nelson, made his debut in the world of music at a very young age, just 19, when he was signed by Warner. It began to make its way into the rankings, as early as 1978, but it was with the new decade that it quickly reached the top of the rankings. His music was both innovative and provocative, a mix of funk and new wave that aroused the attention of both the general public and critics. The spearhead of that period was probably Purple Rain, the soundtrack of the film of the same name, which became one of the best-selling records of the decade.
Although she was very young at the time and in some sense risked being overshadowed by her brother’s bright star, Janet Jackson also sold a lot during the 1980s. Born in 1966, she was the youngest of the Jackson clan but was signed by A&M as early as 1982. The first two discs, released in 1982 and 1984, did not go particularly well, but the turning point in her career came in 1986, when Janet – now mature and freed from family “supervision” – released Control, which flew directly to the top of the charts. American.
The 10 most beautiful actors of all time
This list could be read today or in 20 years. An 18-year-old might like it when an 80-year-old might like it. The reason is (quite) simple: beauty is subjective, Oscars are subjective, films are subjective. But obviously if the most popular Hollywood actors searched on Google as much as in filmography for years are these 10 actors, perhaps beauty is subjective enough to become objective.
The sexiest gentleman officer in film history. Actor, activist, engaged in a thousand battles for the social, currently linked to Alejandra Silva, 34 years younger than him. And this thing didn’t go down to a much, BUT MUCH, larger than expected audience. Among the famous American actors he is the most inter-generational.
Virtually Jean-Paul Belmondo’s quintessential antagonist for all 60s and 70s gave any Hollywood actor a hard time. His is a textbook story, between torment and ecstasy (with the risk of suicide, now that he lives in Switzerland).
Here we are again with the famous American actors. Back single a few weeks after the “tumultuous” end of the marriage that he imagined perfect with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt is a man few could resist. His sexy charge does not fade despite the 52 years played, quite the contrary.
The charm with a grizzled flavor of the American actor hit fans and companions in a very short time … Canalis enjoyed his graces for a few years, but a Lebanese-born lawyer, Amal Alamuddin, managed to frame him. she married him in an epic wedding in Venice.
The very symbol of American cinema, one of the greatest Hollywood stars ever, very active in the social field, Peck is still today the icon of a discreet and calm charm, capable of knowing how to measure himself in the most disparate situations alternating strength and sweetness, decision and instinct. He passed away in 2003, at the age of 87, after two marriages and five children.
Who better than agent 007 can embody the myth of the elusive seducer, able to escape unscathed from any situation and to live gallant adventures from all over the world? Still the most loved 007 of all time.
Perhaps the most loved Italian actor, certainly among the famous and most appreciated Italian actors also abroad, especially among women. Emblem of the Dolce Vita, with his apparently clumsy style he sent the obsolete concept of Latin lover into crisis, he invented the intellect that upsets (the Deneuve).
With her Mediterranean beauty, Monica Bellucci has literally conquered, not only our country, but the whole world, becoming one of the most admired and requested Italian actresses in the international cinema scene. That curvy body, those plump lips and that long brown hair have pierced the screen over and over again, starting with Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Apartment, to getting to Malèna, the last two chapters of The Matrix and The Passion of Christ, without forgetting his appearance, alongside Daniel Craig, in 007 Specter.
Born and raised for the first years of her life in Jerusalem, Natalie Portman has remained in the collective imagination thanks to her countless and unforgettable performances in films such as Leon, the second Star Wars trilogy, Closer, V for Vendetta, The Black Swan and Thor. But not only: because thanks to its soap and water beauty and its simplicity, it has been chosen several times as the testimonial of famous cosmetics and perfumery brands.
With her interpretation of Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, Blake Lively managed to stay in the collective imagination, conquering a large slice of the public. Spectators who followed and supported her also for the films in which the actress took part over the years, such as 4 friends and a pair of jeans, The Town, Le belve, Café Society and A small favor. But beyond her undisputed acting talent, what immediately strikes her is the beauty of a Greek goddess, distinguished by a perfect body, a sunny look, long and thick blond hair. And it doesn’t matter whether it’s a red carpet or an interpretation of her, because Blake Lively always manages to steal the show from everyone, even her husband Ryan Reynolds.
10 Most famous actors under 30
Famous, beautiful, adored and… young. From Jennifer Lawrence to Shia LaBeouf, here are the most requested actors under 30 in the world of cinema. Read below and find out who are the most famous actors and actress under 30.
It is the real precious gem of the new generation of Hollywood. Sunny, spontaneous, ironic and beautiful, she managed to win an Oscar almost without realizing it at the age of 23 and awkwardly fell on the stairs of the Dolby Theater a few minutes later to collect the statuette. Is it our? Imitating jay? from the Hunger Games saga, the X-Men mutant Mystica and the easy-going shot from American Hustle. But she is always beautiful and, above all, very good.
Are fantasy sagas good for their young protagonists? It seems so if we can name three, and only for women, in our ranking. In just 24 years, Shailene Woodley has come a long way. Some may remember her as the clumsy teenager from The Secret Life of an American Teenager , but very little remains of that immature girl. After a series of successful films such as Bitter Paradise (in which she starred up to George Clooney), the fantasy saga Divergent and the blockbuster film The Fault of the Stars, Shailene is ready to take flight for good. Like? Apparently a certain Oliver Stone has chosen her as the protagonist for his next film.
We just admired the perfect interpretation of the sick and emaciated fighter-bombers in Mad Max: Fury Road by George Miller, but the beautiful English eyes of ice is now a regular customer of the big screen since, only twelve years old, he has convinced really all in the role of the young Marcus in About a Boy by Chris & Paul Weitz. Since then, his participation in the British cult series Skins, an X-Men role and a long love story with Jennifer Lawrence have made him one of the most loved young actors by teenagers around the world. That all the Mad Max dust manages to? Dirty? a little bit of that pretty face?
Percy Jackson is growing up. And apparently just fine. We had already understood this after the beautiful, intense and unforgettable interpretation of the young Charlie, protagonist of the cult film We are infinite, but if this were not enough, here is the dazzling performance in Fury, where he proves to be a flexible, expressive and mature actor, to the point of overshadowing even a gigantic Brad Pitt. I forgot, the boy is only 23 years old. We will see some good ones.
An actress who needs no introduction and not just because with her – and with the eight films of the Harry Potter saga – an entire generation has grown up Emma? Hole? literally the screen with a simplicity and a seriousness that perhaps even the most mature and famous stars should take them as an example. She is a style icon and testimonial of some luxury brands, but she is also a United Nations ambassador and spokesperson for UN Woman, the United Nations organization that deals with the condition of women in the world. And the acting? Having stopped (definitively?) The role of Hermione Granger, we saw her next to Logan Lerman in We are infinite and as the protagonist of Sofia Coppola ‘s Bling Ring, Harry Potter who?
The young actress from North Carolina – born in 1990 – has succeeded in the not easy feat of being on the big screen at the same time with two different films and with two exceptional male partners: she is in fact in these days in theaters in the science fiction Tomorrowland next to George Clooney and the romantic comedy The Answer is in the Stars, alongside another of the protagonists of our ranking, Scott Eastwood. What else to say? We will definitely hear about it.
If the surname weren’t enough, there is that face to say everything. Bad blood does not lie and apparently Scott Eastwood did not only take from his father the icy eyes, the penetrating gaze and the undoubted charm. There is also the talent and love for cinema that he inevitably observes and breathes since he was a child but which is now preparing to live in first person. After small parts in some productions signed by his father and a cameo in Fury, Scott Eastwood is now the protagonist of a romantic comedy made just to make the remaining 50% fall in love with women who have not already capitulated just looking him in the face: The answer is in the stars. The surname is certainly cumbersome, but to have those icy eyes is a compromise to be accepted.
He certainly needs no introduction and indeed, looking at his filmography, it really amazes us that we are less than thirty years old (27 to be precise). Emma Stone is one of those rare actresses capable of making people laugh without being ridiculous, as in the hilarious Easy Girl, but also of intense and dramatic interpretations as in the award-winning Birdman, where she plays the role of Sam Thomson, daughter of the protagonist, a role that it also earned her her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. We look forward to seeing her at the cinema in the unusual capacity of an aircraft pilot in Cameron Crowe’s Under the Hawaiian Sky. And we are sure it will be perfect as ever.
Shia doesn’t miss a beat and is considered to be one of Hollywood’s most powerful young actors at 29. An eclectic, unconventional and decidedly unconventional character, he often makes headlines for shock revelations, aggressions and red carpets with paper bags on his head, as happened at the 64th edition of the Berlin Film Festival. He became famous to the general public for the lead role in Trasformers 1,2,3, he then took part, among others, in Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods in the role of the son of Harrison Ford, and recently in the controversial The Nymphomaniac Vol. I and II , about which he said he got the part by sending director Lars Von Trier the sex tapes shot with his girlfriend at the time.
In short, uncomfortable, difficult, but talented enough to forgive him everything.
Kick-ass nerdy kid has grown up. And we’re not just talking about the girth of the pectorals and biceps. After brilliantly playing the charming Count Vronski in Joe Wright ‘s Anna Karenina and participating in Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, he has even become an Avengers. Of course, he does not lack physique du role, but it is the romantic soul and a bit of other times that make us love it. In 2009, at the age of 19, she announced her engagement to then 42-year-old artist and director Sam Taylor-Wood, who is 23 years older. After 6 years and two children they are still roses and flowers. Other than biceps.
25 The most famous actors in the world
Before the awards, before the world fame and before becoming real stars, American actors began to gain experience in the world of entertainment in the most different and unexpected ways.

One of the most famous actors in the world and representative of strength and nobility of soul. He is among the most famous actors in the world!

Famous actors in great musicals (The Greatest Showman, of “Les Misérables”, “The Miserables”) to gritty superhero films (and Wolverine in the X-Men films), the Australian actor Hugh Jackman has what it takes to make everything. A chiseled jaw, a proud and penetrating gaze make him one of the most famous actors in the world.
Long before becoming the official internet boyfriend in 2019, Keanu Reeves made a name for himself in genre-defining sci-fi movies, such as “The Matrix . ” Now, it is embodied by two words: John Wick, a dark and dark ex-murderer who retires after 5 years with his wife to live a “relaxed” life, but in the film as in life, Keanu’s experience is certainly unique and not always very easy. For this he is counted among the 50 most famous actors in the world. Bravo Keanu!

Few actors have commanded the screen all the time and with the same ferocity as 89-year-old Clint Eastwood, the quintessential “get off my lawn” level (see the movie: “Gran Torino” ).

He is obviously one of the most famous actors in the world.
“Hey, this is the big story of how my life changed, turned upside down it’s over!” Willy the Prince of Bel Air, so we all remember Will Smith. Nowadays though, the Prince of Bel Air has grown up and Will Smith stars in pretty much everything from science fiction movies ( “I, Robot” ) to funny romantic comedies ( “Hitch” ) to Oscar wacky lures ( “The Pursuit of Happiness” ).
