Hard work pays off! Just look at how many Hollywood stars started with a few minutes of screen time and a couple of years of hustling. We all start somewhere. Did you ever wonder what these celebrities first roles were? Let’s take a deep dive into the past of some of our favorite actors and actresses to see how it all began. While some started in television, we shall look at their first appearance on the big screen today.
Matt Damon: Mystic Pizza
This blue-eyed cutie played a minor role in the 1988 romantic comedy Mystic Pizza. It wasn’t until nine years later that acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola gave him his first big break as The Rainmaker. Later that same year, the role he co-wrote in Good Will Hunting would launch him into superstardom. The famous actor has also famously played an undercover agent in the Bourne series and, in recent years, was cast as Carroll Shelby in Ford vs. Ferrari. He designed the GT-40 that led Ken Miles to win the 1966 Le Mans. That car is now up for a 12-million-dollar auction.
