The amazing talent of actors and actresses will lead you to believe they ARE the role they’re playing.

50. 300 was an impressive film, but the costumes just look silly next to modern-day attire.

With so many fantastic movies out there, it’s hard to think of the actors as actual real people. They’re just like you and me. They laugh, play with kids, make jokes, take breaks and eat. I hope these 50 photos helped you to see the actors in a different light and gain a little appreciation for the talent and time put into some of your favorite movies.
