The First And Last Roles Of Famous Actors: Kate Beckinsale, Keanu Reeves, Ryan Gosling. We are so used to our favorite actors that we don’t notice how much they change. This only becomes apparent on the red carpet, when someone has a new wrinkle on his face, and someone has gray hair. Are these changes noticeable in films? In this article, we will look at the first and last role of movie stars to see these grandiose changes.
Debuts and triumphs of Hollywood movie stars
So, are you ready for an exciting journey through the maze of memory? It’s always nice to nostalgic a little 😉 By the way, what if you want to watch some movie that we’ll remind you below?
The first role of Keanu Reeves, who turned into a meme, is connected with the film “Young Blood” (1986). Of course, before this role in the movie, young Reeves played in the theater and in musicals. Keanu’s acting career began when he was only 9 years old. At that time, he made his debut in the theatrical production of “Damn Yankees.”
To be honest, Keanu’s face first appeared on the Canadian CBC channel. In addition, Reeves, like all Hollywood stars at the dawn of his career, did not disdain commercials.
Young Blood, where Keanu played the hockey goalie, is perhaps the first serious work of this level. Then the actor went through The Matrix, Billy and Ted, On the Crest of the Wave, Constantine: Lord of Darkness, Devil’s Advocate, and finally got to John Wick 3 (2019). This, in fact, is his last role. In fairness, let’s say that in 2019 Reeves also appeared in the film “You Are My Doubt”, the movie “Between Two Ferns”.
In 2020, with the participation of Keanu, the cartoon “Sponge Bob on the Run”, as well as the films “Billy and Ted” and the long-awaited “Matrix 4” will be released.
The star we remembered for the role of the charming Romanian princess in Van Helsing has come a long way. It is curious that before the movie, the future actress was fond of literature and even participated in relevant competitions. Kate’s parents were actors, so, in the end, she also took up an acting career. Beckinsale’s debut took place in the film “Devices and Desires.”
In fact, it was a mini-series released in 1991. But before “Devices and Desires,” Kate managed to play in the television movie “One Against the Wind,” dedicated to the events of World War II. After that, the actress took part in the film adaptations of Shakespeare’s play “Much Ado About Nothing”, films “The Last Days of Disco”, “Ruined Palace”, “Pearl Harbor”, “Intuition”, “Another World”, “Aviator”, etc. In 2019, Beckinsale received a role in the film “The Widow.” Well, in 2020, we will see Kate in the movie “Blow”. I wonder what awaits us there!
The Canadian actor and musician, two-time Oscar nominee, is called one of the most beautiful Hollywood stars. Unlike Kate Beckinsale, Ryan’s parents had nothing to do with the movie world. But Gosling himself from childhood took part in projects from the “Mickey Mouse Club”. There he met Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and other stars. Perhaps this is due to the interest of the actor in musical activity (Gosling has his own group). The first role of Ryan was associated with the TV series “Goosebumps” (1995-1998).
However, Gosling came to fame later – after participating in the neo-noir Drive (2011). The actor was also remembered by us for the films “Fanatic”, “Diary of Remembrance”, “Fracture”, “Valentine Card”, “La La Land” and “Blade Runner 2049”. In 2018, Gosling starred in the movie “Man on the Moon”, where he played Neil Armstrong, which was his last – at the moment – role.
The beauty from The Burning Plain first appeared on the screens in the film Two Days in the Valley (1996). The highlight of the actress is of South African descent. From the age of sixteen Charlize participated in beauty contests – so her mother wanted. The girl traveled to Europe, again and again becoming the winner in the beauty industry. Charlize was even offered to sign a contract with the prestigious Milan modeling agency. A modeling career brought Theron to America. So, soon, having fallen in love with the USA, Charlize moves to New York. After the modeling business, the future actress became interested in dancing. But she was forced to leave her studies and move to Los Angeles. A girl’s career is the result of chance. Once, when Charlize unsuccessfully tried to cash out a check in a bank, impresario John Crossby saw her. After this meeting, Theron’s life changed forever.
We talked about the film “Two days in the valley”, but we note that Charlize experienced a real triumph after the movie “Devil’s Advocate”. Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves appeared there. Among the other famous works of the actress are such movie masterpieces as “Sweet November”, “Monster”, “Italian Robbery”. In 2019, Theron starred in the movie “That Another Couple”. Well, the last role is Cypher in Fast and the Furious 9 (2020).
An actress with a Slavic origin is a multifaceted personality. In addition to his acting career, Jovovich is engaged in fashion design, music and modeling. First, Milla became interested in the world of fashion and beauty. She quickly adapted to the United States, where she moved with her parents in 1980. Jovovich got her first role at the age of 13, starring in Zalman King’s film “The Merger of Two Moons” (1988).
At the age of 15, Milla played the main role in the movie “Return to the Blue Lagoon”, and at 16 she appeared as the wife of Charlie Chaplin in the film “Chaplin”. Of course, all this time Mila did not give up the modeling business. She often acts as a model at shows, is the face of L’Oreal. Craving Jovovich for the movie, possibly related to his mother. The actress herself admits this: her mother was a famous Soviet actress, so she greatly influenced her daughter’s worldview. The actress got real fame in 1996 when she met Luke Besson (whom, by the way, she later married). In 1997, the Fifth Element was released, where Milla plays the main role. This is followed by a series of successful films (“Resident Evil”, “Perfect Escape”, “Paradise Hills”), and in 2020 the film “Monster Hunter” is released, which is so far the last in the filmography of Milla Jovovich.
