5 Actors We Don’t Remember Being Young

It is often believed that the younger one starts to work towards his or her dream of becoming an actor, the better are the chances of actually making it big. There are, however, a few brilliant actors who devoted most part of their lives to cinema but only gained recognition at a much later stage in their careers, almost making it seem like they have never been young and struggling! But, of course they have!

These celebrated performers didn't achieve their success until after years of auditioning away, playing minor roles and rejection. Here is a list of five such actors who proved that it is never too late to make it big.

Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman, one of the most respected figures in American cinema, became popular at the age of 50 after his work in the film Street Smart (1987).
