A book should never be judged by its cover and this also applies to people. Looks are not everything and are not a must-have when it comes to being a successful actor as I’m about to prove. For what these actors lack in the looks department they certainly don’t lack talent.
It is always nice to have some eye candy in movies but these actors prove that good looks are not what makes a movie great. Who would you add to the list? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Steve Buscemi may not be a tall hunk but he has definitely played some amazing roles in Hollywood over the past 30 years. He is mostly known for playing characters that are odd, creepy or colourful. As well as making it big as a Hollywood legend he has also had success with writing and directing.
There is no one who plays a funny psychopath than this guy. He has played amazing roles in movies such as Casino, My Cousin Vinny and let’s not forget the huge Christmas smash hit Home Alone. Despite not exactly making the ladies swoon he has been appearing on screens for the past 50 years.
Samuel L. Jackson:
This successful actor might not make hearts race but he has starred in over 100 movies, such as Pulp Fiction, Avengers and Snakes On A Plane.
Rowan Atkinson may not look like a Greek God but that does not make him any less successful. He is undoubtedly one of the top British actors of our time. He is mostly known for his role as the funny and silent Mr Bean.
Despite not being classed as very attractive Dj Qualls was a model before his first role in the movies. He is best known for his weird, awkward role in Road Trip and has also starred in Tv shows such as Breaking Bad, Lost and My Name Is Earl.
Seth Rogen is not a one to shy away from the fact he lacks looks as he is always taking the p**s out of himself. Seth Rogen is known for being the funny stoner guy in movies and has taken on roles in movies such as Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and This Is The End. He also wrote the movie Superbad and also starred in it.
Mike Myers always seems to play characters less attractive than himself such as Austin Powers, Dr Evil and who can forget the brief character Fat B*****d. Myers may not be classed as a hottie but he sure has been successful staring in movies such as… Obviously Austin Powers, Waynes World and Waynes World 2.
Christopher Walken is described as a nervous looking lead on IMDB but despite his looks, he has always made his looks work for him by taking on roles as unstable but memorable characters. he has starred in movies such as Catch Me If You Can, The Deer Hunter and Pulp Fiction.
I would personally class Jack Nicholson as creepy rather than good looking but that does not mean that he isn’t one hell of an amazing actor. He normally takes on the rolls of unstable psychopaths which he pulls off perfectly. He has starred in movies such as As Good As It Gets, The Shining and Batman.
