I think this applies more so female to musicians and actresses but there are so many celebrity actors and artists that have only made it far because their faces could be sold. I hate to say it but people like Jhene Aiko, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, and dare I say Rihanna (please don’t hate me I love Rihanna as much as the next girl) would not be nearly as far as they are in their careers if they were “ugly”, likewise there was plenty of “non-attractive” people that have the same or more talent but aren’t known because they can’t be sold, branded, or marketed in the same way. It’s so crazy of much sex appeal masks our judgement in talent.
According to wikipedia, there are only 4 actors with uncredited roles alive, so then Don Marion Davis:
with 4 credited roles:
Is the last person to die (last december) with a credited role in a movie in the silent film era , I find that fact very interesting, but it has passed totally unnoticed.
Mildred Kornman https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0466506has some credited roles in silent shorts, but not in silent movies.
I edit, one redditor tells me that there is a term for that:
And I just wanted to add that a forum like https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/ deserves at least a post commenting of that interesting trivia!.
In this post I ask a related question, oldest movie with actor still alive..
Hi, this is Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and you probably recognize me from my stand-up specials or feature film credits including Pixar’s Coco and Magic Mike. I currently star in the hit sitcom Mr. Iglesias and Part 3 just released on Netflix world-wide December 8th. I play a good-natured public high school teacher who works at his alma mater. He takes on teaching gifted but misfit kids to not only save them from being “counseled out” by a bully bureaucrat Assistant Principal, but also to help them unlock their full potential. Mr. Iglesias Part 1, 2 ＆ 3 are currently streaming and I can’t wait for you guys to see Part 3 so Ask Me Anything!
I was reading about how seemingly super famous stars were relegated to nothing within a couple of years. Megan fox and Taylor Lautner were two examples that were rumored to be blackballed and frozen out by Hollywood.
We know that people like Weinstein and these producers use the power to deny others jobs, but any rumor I hear about this stuff always comes from tabloid gossip stuff where you never know it’s real.
So what are some examples you think of people getting blackballed by Hollywood ?
