Most of the time, if an actor stars in a huge hit Hollywood movie, their career completely takes off. However, sometimes for various reasons, that doesn’t happen. Read about a few actors whose giant hit movies did not turn them into stars.
Avatar is the highest-grossing movie of all time. Yet Sam Worthington, the actor who played the hero/lead character, never quite reached A-list Hollywood status. Worthington has certainly had a very nice career (and will continue to star in all the future Avatar movies); he just never entered the rarified air of a Brad Pitt or a Tom Cruise.
There are varying reasons why that can happen. Perhaps in Worthington’s case, it’s because the real star of Avatar is its creator/writer/director/producer James Cameron and his innovative vision.
