Lively from: 1984–at the moment
Bio: Maybe due to his stoner-y voice (well-known for uttering “Whoa!”), Reeves has been unfairly labeled a foul actor by some, however Hollywood’s biggest filmmakers, like Francis Ford Coppola and Bernardo Bertolucci, have forged him, and his versatile filmography consists of comedies (Invoice and Ted’s Wonderful Journey), romances (The Lake Home), motion (The Matrix and John Wick), drama (A Stroll within the Clouds) and even Shakespeare (A lot Ado About Nothing).
Greatest snub: 1991’s My Personal Non-public Idaho. Directed by Gus Van Sant, the movie about two avenue hustlers and associates in Portland, Oregon was heralded by critics as groundbreaking, and stood out at the moment as a uncommon instance of two main film stars (Reeves and River Phoenix) taking part in roles with homosexual themes. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone journal singled out Reeves’ efficiency as “magnetic,” and whereas the movie is now thought of a traditional, Reeves did not obtain the Finest Supporting Actor nomination he deserved.
