10 Actors Who Play Characters That Do The Same Thing In Almost Every Movie





Most movie fans are aware of typecasting, where a certain actor becomes associated with a particular character or a similar type of roles. While some actors will purposefully choose a role that is completely opposite from their usual one to break away from their typecast, others embrace it and make millions by having a consistent presence in every film they do.

Once you see these patterns, you can’t unsee them. Here are 10 actors whose characters are doing the same thing in almost every movie.

1. Angelina Jolie with weapons

Angelina Jolie took yoga and kickboxing lessons to prepare for her role in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. She was also taught how to handle a gun. These skills became pretty handy for the actress as she used them in several other films.

2. Matthew McConaughey’s abs

Just to be clear, there are no complains here. But yes, Matthew McConaughey’s shirt seems to disappear in most of his films.

3. Cameron Diaz in underwear

Just like Matthew McConaughey, Cameron Diaz just can’t keep an item of clothing on. This time, however, the actress keeps losing her pants in movies she’s in.

4. Jean-Claude Van Damme’s splits

Jean-Claude Van Damme is famously known for his splits, which is why most of his films add this incredible skill to the script.

5. Ryan Gosling with a cigarette

Ryan Gosling has a baby face and looks like he’s not old enough to drink or smoke. However, most of his characters have a bad habit especially smoking cigarettes.

6. Drew Barrymore with a phone

Drew Barrymore only had a short scene in Scream, but this is certainly the most famous movie where you can see her with a phone. But that’s definitely not the only movie that you will see her using it.

7. John Travolta dancing

John Travolta was a professional dancer. With this background, directors wanted to show off the actor’s dancing skill in their movies.

8. Edward Norton’s white tank

Edward Norton looks good in a lot of colors, but white seems to be his go-to in movies.

9. Jennifer Aniston’s wavy hair

There’s no doubt that Jennifer Aniston’s character Rachel Green in the hugely popular television series Friends has had an enormous influence on the type of roles she’s been offered. The actress’ wavy hair seems to fit perfectly for the hopeless romantic characters that she has become best known for.

10. Tom Cruise’s cuts

Tom Cruise is one of the most successful action stars in the world, so seeing him with cuts and bruises in his films makes a lot of sense. However, attentive viewers notice that his cuts never seem to change their spots, which are mostly on his right cheek and the bridge of his nose.
