What famous actor or actress has been in so many movies they barely try to act and play themselves? After polling the internet, these are the top-voted responses.

1. Jeff Goldblum

“Jeff Goldblum, honestly. I still love him, though! I got the chance to meet him at a Con a few years back, and he is exactly like that in real life! When I got a picture with him, he gasped when he saw my Elton John cosplay and said, ‘That’s fantastic! Let’s dance!’ And he pulled me in and started singing to me. I love that man so much,” someone shared.

2. Morgan Freeman

“Morgan Freeman is great. I love him as Morgan Freeman in everything he’s in,” one said. “The Shawshank Redemption is where Freeman showed the most range, and it’s been hard to see him do more. Se7en is pretty good, but that’s like him in his niche as Morgan Freeman before he was a meme.” Another argued, “He played God (Bruce Almighty) and is God in everything.”

3. Diane Keaton

“Diane Keaton has been playing Diane Keaton since Annie Hall,” someone said. “It should be noted that Diane Keaton was born Diane Hall. She went by the nickname of Annie,” a second person added. Another joked, “And she has one outfit, the white turtleneck, for every role.”

4. Michael Cera

“Michael Cera,” one stated. “The only time he didn’t play himself was when he played himself in This Is The End.” “He was not his usual self in the Twin Peaks revival,” a second person argued. 

5. Bruce Willis

“Bruce Willis. He stopped caring a while ago,” someone suggested. “I don’t hold it against him, though. It’s his way of earning money. If I could phone in performances in B movies for a hefty paycheck, I’d do so gladly.” However, others noted that he has an aphasia diagnosis, dementia that takes your ability to speak before consuming your mind. So he’s retired from acting.”

6. Jason Statham

“Jason Statham. But you must admit his movies are fun to watch,” replied one. “Best part of Statham movies is you know exactly what you’re getting,” said another. However, a third argued, “His role in Spy was excellent. He’s utterly self-aware of his traditional movie roles. I’m shocked he let himself get used to comedy, but it was terrific. He also killed it in the movie Snatch.”

7. Sam Elliott

“I’m convinced that Sam Elliott is a stoic cowboy. Unless it’s Parks and Recreation, in which he’s a vegan hippy called Ron Dunn,” someone said. Another suggested, “Check him out in We Were Soldiers. WOW. No cowboy. No stoicism. NO MUSTACHE!” Finally, a third joked, “There are five men in the world that can pull off that mustache. And he’s three of them.”

8. Kevin Hart

“Kevin Hart usually plays Kevin Hart with a different name. His jokes include being black and short,’ one said, with many others agreeing. However, another argued Watch Fatherhood. I have a whole new respect for him as an actor after watching that movie. His performance is impressive. He also pulled off the old guy in Jumanji: The Next Level.”

9. Ryan Reynolds

“Ryan Reynolds. I came here to say this. I like him, but he’s the same in every movie,” someone said. Another volunteered, “I like to think that Ryan Reynolds is always playing Van Wilder but in an alternate universe where Van Wilder is a vampire hunter, a superhero, a Pikachu, or a Free Guy, or….”

10. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

The number one-voted response reads, “There’s a difference between movie stars and actors. Gary Oldman is an actor; he turns in performances as characters. The Rock is a movie star; he’s supposed to perform as the Rock as a character.”

Honorable Mentions: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Black, Gal Gadot, Sylvester Stallone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. This article was inspired by the internet and did not necessarily reflect the views of Finance Quick Fix.
