I am Bored THE 12 LUCKIEST ACTORS IN HOLLYWOOD TODAY

In order to make it in Hollywood you need talent, dedication, a lot of passion and a lot of luck. And the actors below know a hell of a lot about luck, because the fact of the matter is that luck is the only reason it seems they find themselves in big movies, and cashing big-time checks. Check out some men and women that somehow made it big in Hollywood.

Sam Worthington
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
This English/Aussie lad was really a nobody until the year 2009 rolled around. The world then saw him star alongside Christian Bale in “Terminator Salvation,” and more importantly in one of the biggest movies ever: “Avatar.” Now he and his awful, boring acting have been staring in big movies left and right, and he’s bought James Cameron enough drinks that he’s lined up for three “Avatar” sequels in the near future.

Orlando Bloom
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
Maybe film producers were charmed by his English accent, but Bloom convinced people to let him be a part of two of the biggest movie franchises ever: “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.” And yeah, he almost singlehandedly ruined the pirate films, but don’t worry, he’s getting yet another chance to ruin them when he appears in a new one in 2017. Bloom and his whiny ways refuse to go down without a fight.

Vin Diesel
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
As much as I like seeing Diesel promote toy sharks, I really am baffled as to how he’s stuck around in Hollywood so long. Diesel got a lucky break when Steven Spielberg saw his short film “Strays” and gave him a role in “Saving Private Ryan.” Twenty-seven “Fast and the Furious” movies later and Diesel is still around, still making money and still inspiring tools to convince themselves they can drive like he does in the movies.

Megan Fox
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
No, no one flocked to see “Transformers” because Michael Bay directed it. They went to see Megan Fox bent over the hood of a car. And like that, we had a new actress to obsess over. Since then Fox has found herself in more big, loud movies (including the classic and memorable “Jonah Hex”). And even though good acting isn’t at the top of her priority list, at least you can still see her looking hot while she interacts with turtles.

Elijah Wood
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
Not many child actors grow up to be normal, stable adults, but not only did Elijah Wood pull that off, he reeled in massive checks when he snagged the role of Frodo in “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” and all those sequels that came with that. Now he can just kick back with his millions and wait for a cameo when “Lord of the Rings” is rebooted.

Bill Paxton
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
“Titanic,” Apollo 13,” “Aliens,” The Terminator.” Those are just some massive movies that Bill Paxton has been in. Don’t ask me how, because Pax is nothing special, and yet he’s carved himself a long career, and he continues to get offered roles. You can see Paxton’s top-notch acting in “Twister,” and then wonder to yourself why he’s rich and you aren’t.

Jennifer Lawrence
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
I know she has an Oscar and countless other nominations under her belt, but when it comes down to it Jennifer Lawrence is just severely overrated. Starring as Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” helped her reach a mainstream audience, and since then she’s been everywhere, mainly telling every person she meets how “normal” and “down to earth” she is.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
Mintz-Plasse killed it as McLovin in “Superbad,” his first time ever in any sort of film role. But since then we’ve quickly realized that he’s a one-tune actor, playing the same awkward guy in every movie (and stealing roles from Michael Cera, probably). Mintz-Plasse doesn’t bring anything new to the table with every role, but his successful turn in “Superbad” will keep him employed for years to come.

Zac Efron
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
It pays to be good looking in Hollywood, just ask Zac Efron. After dancing around in high school gyms, Efron has gone on to snag roles (mostly of the partying/frat boy type). And even though he’s had more box office failures than successes, Efron is still at the top of the list of a lot of casting directors. And he’s not going away anytime soon, as Zac and his lucky ways will find him on the sandy beaches with girls in bikinis in “Baywatch.”

Liam Hemsworth
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
You can make a case that all the Hemsworth brothers have been lucky, but we’re going to call Liam the luckiest. How the hell did this dude not only find himself in one major franchise in “The Hunger Games,” but also in one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, “Independence Day: Resurgence”? It seems like Hollywood is trying really hard to make this guy the next big thing, but it seems he’ll always be in Thor’s shadow.

Channing Tatum
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
The former stripper whose most popular movie focuses on stripping is pretty much what Channing Tatum is about. While Hollywood tried and failed to make him a big-time action star, Channing’s calling may be comedy, as his biggest box office hits have been in the “21 Jump Street” franchise. This guy gyrated himself into the hearts of film producers everywhere, and is still one of the luckiest out there.

Adam Sandler’s Pals
Luckiest Actors In Hollywood Today
No one knows more about luck than Adam Sandler’s pals. Sandler kicked off his career quite nicely for himself, before absolutely shitting the bed with terrible movie after terrible movie. And now? Well now he just employs people that no one else wants to employ; more specifically Rob Schneider and David Spade. These two Joes would be be selling insurance somewhere if it wasn’t for Sandler, so they owe him a couple nice fruit baskets.
