1.
Keanu Reeves
Actor, The Matrix
Keanu Reeves, whose first name means "cool breeze over the mountains" in Hawaiian, was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1964, the son of English-born Patricia Taylor, a showgirl, and American-born Samuel Nowlin Reeves, a geologist. Keanu's father was born in Hawaii, of British, Portuguese, Native Hawaiian...
“ The Matrix was great IN SPITE of Keanu, since he was never expected to actually act. His lowest point? Much Ado About Nothing, where Keanu plays Ted (from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure) in a Shakespeare play. ” - drume
 
2.
Christopher Lambert
Though born in Great Neck, Long Island, Christopher Lambert's family left the US when he was only two years old. His father was a United Nations diplomat assigned to Switzerland and, as a result, Chris was educated at private boarding schools in Geneva. Inspired through his having appeared in a play at age 12...
“ Keanu had The Matrix. Chris had The Highlander. And neither one has done anything since... except embarrass themselves. ” - drume
 
3.
Matt LeBlanc
Actor, Friends
Matt LeBlanc was born on 25 July 1967 in Newton, Massachussetts. His mother, Patricia, is of Italian origin, and worked as an office manager, and his father, Paul LeBlanc, who was from a French-Canadian family, was a mechanic. After graduating from high school, he spent some time as a photo model in Florida before moving to New York where he took drama classes...
“ Like Keanu, Matt got a break in TV's Friends playing himself: a moron. After that, everything was downhill. ” - drume
 
4.
Kate Hudson
Almost everyone who has spent time with Kate Hudson -including directors, family members, co-stars and interviewers - is quick to comment on her ability to light up a room. Through some combination of a winning smile, solid work ethic, and good old-fashioned talent, the young actress has gone from indie beginner to Vanity Fair cover girl in just three years...
“ After Almost Famous, it was all downhill for this actress. Is she trying to set the record for the most terrible romantic comedies in a career? In any case, Kate wins as the actress most likely to be simultaneously liked by women and hated or ignored by men. ” - drume
 
5.
Charlton Heston
Actor, Ben-Hur
With features chiseled in stone, and renowned for playing a long list of historical figures, particularly in Biblical epics, the tall, well built and ruggedly handsome Charlton Heston was one of Hollywood's greatest leading men and remained active in front of movie cameras for over sixty years. As a Hollywood star...
“ If you play yourself in every role, you can't call it acting. Especially if you're an egotistical blowhard. ” - drume
 
6.
Steven Seagal
Producer, Under Siege
Steven Seagal is a striking and somewhat boyishly handsome (often with ponytail) action star who burst onto the martial arts film scene in 1988 in the fast-paced Warner Bros. film Above the Law. Steven Frederic Seagal was born in Lansing, Michigan, to Patricia Anne (Fisher), a medical technician...
“ When an actor won't even allow hair and wardrobe differences in different films, there's little chance they'll be changing their acting style either. And it's amazing how many action scenes one actor can do without hardly moving his fat rear end. Some actors make action look easy. Steven makes action look like nap time. ” - drume
 
7.
Steve Guttenberg
Although Steve Guttenberg is firmly established as the star not only of hit motion pictures but of hit motion picture franchises, his roots are in the theater. As a result, he has moved effortlessly between comedy and drama. In two decades of stardom in both critical and box-office hits, Guttenberg has been the above-the-title star of six films that earned over $100,000,000 in the United States...
“ Just look at his list of films. Either he's the most desperate actor in history, or he has the worst taste. ” - drume
 
8.
William Shatner
Actor, Star Trek
William Shatner has notched up an impressive 50-plus years in front of the camera, most recently displaying comedic talent, and being instantly recognizable to several generations of cult television fans as the square-jawed Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise. Shatner was born in Côte Saint-Luc...
“ Got a second lease on his career by comically parodying himself in everything. Smart move, because everything else is just begging to be mocked. ” - drume
