It’s no surprise that some actors would have a stronger hand in the making of the movies they star in, but it’s not like these always get some kind of special mention or thank-you when the credits roll. Now, we're not shedding too many tears for actors, let's face it - they have it pretty good, with their ability to burn money at will and murder people without penalty.

But still, if they've made a meaningful contribution to the film they're working on they should definitely be acknowledged. We don't know how their attention-starved egos allow stuff like this to happen, honestly. Sometimes they're apparently not as 'look at me, look at me" as we think they are.

So we’ve taken this occasion to dig up some lesser known instances where actors made a significant mark by changing their characters or movies, mostly for the better. You're welcome, actors. The limelight is all yours, again.
