20 Amazing Actors (And Their Embarrassing First Appearances)

20 Amazing Actors (And Their Embarrassing First Appearances)

Nobody really begins where they want to be, and Hollywood is a prime example of this. Indeed, ignoring actors being handed starring roles purely out of ego-based nepotism, many performers begin in roles with names such as Background Extra #3, Poopin’ Man, or Conservative Comedian. These roles may seem weird or embarrassing, but hey, we all gotta start somewhere — after all, did you know Mila Kunis’ very first feature film was a Hulk Hogan Christmas movie? “Conservative Comedian” at least allows you to practice some acting chops as a disingenuous douche, but what can you even do in a Hulk Hogan Christmas movie?

Even if we have discussed this topic here at Cracked, this is a gift that just keeps on giving. Thus, here’s another batch of really early (and cringe-worthy) roles from awesome actors. We have focused mainly on movies (including some classic examples and other less-known gems we found while digging through the internet scrolls), but the research resurfaced some non-movie roles that are also worthwhile. Also, we take it back, playing a secondary character in a Hulk Hogan Christmas movie sounds way better than playing a Conservative Comedian.

Kristen Stewart

EMBARRASSING EARLY APPEARANCES KRISTEN STEWART in Flintstones: Viva Rock Vegas Stewart's very first role was as a girl tossing a ring in a Flintstones movie nobody saw and nobody remembers. Now, in the scene itself you can only see her back, yet the role is pretty well-documented and there are even photos of her on set. CRACKED.COM

Leonardo DiCaprio

EMBARRASSING EARLY APPEARANCES LEONARDO DICAPRIO in Critters 3 Yes, back in 1991 DiCaprio appeared in Gremli- sorry, in Ghoulies, wait, no, in Munchies? Hobgoblins? Oh, we got it, in Critters. Well, the third one, it was a whole genre back then. Leo then went on to better things, like a lifetime of dating 20-year-old models. CRACKED.COM
