5 Hollywood actors who deserve to have their own biopics
Biopics often work like magic at the box office. For years, Hollywood has churned out several acclaimed biopics like Chaplin (on Charlie Chaplin), The Pursuit of Happyness (on businessman and motivational speaker Chris Gardner), Bohemian Rhapsody (on Freddie Mercury), and Rocketman (on Elton John), among others. In this article, we list five actors whose tumultuous lives can easily be captured in biopics.
Will Smith has always managed to silence his critics with his performances and this is why he deserves a biopic. Right from his switch from TV to films, turbulent personal life, spiritual inclination, love for India and its cuisines, his YouTube channel, and his purposely awkward date with Sophia (the artificial intelligence-powered humanoid), Smith's dealings in showbiz have been smart and slapstick.
Robert Downey Jr.
Our favorite Iron Man, among other things, has had a challenging life. Robert Downey Jr. dropped out of high school and landed supporting roles before finding fame with Less Than Zero and Chaplin. However, soon enough, he fell prey to substance abuse and served jail time for frequent brushes with the law. And then came Iron Man in 2008...and the rest is history!
Tom Cruise gained fame for his chiseled looks and versatile performances, which remain untarnished to date. He has shouldered many noteworthy films efficiently and continues to dominate the news. His personal life, on the other hand, is checkered. Cruise's marriages to Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes were covered widely, as was his (controversial?) affinity for Scientology. This contrast would make for a promising biopic.
Angelina Jolie, our fourth entry to this list, had a life filled with euphoric moments and crashing lows. Having started her career at 17, she has come a long way and her growth and maturity can be seen in her interviews as well. Jolie's personal and professional lives deserve to be told on celluloid—but the casting has to be strong. Our choice? Florence Pugh!
Miley Cyrus should star in and as Miley Cyrus in her biopic because no one can bring out her sassiness on-screen except her. Cyrus broke her cute, sweet Hannah Montana image in the mid-2010s with her album Bangerz, where adult-themed lyrics played a pivotal part. Her subsequent songs and videos established a saucy Miley Cyrus, who never returned to embrace that innocent-looking girl again.
