Celebs' very first movie roles

04 July 2013, 13:05 Gabi Zietsman

Nairobi - Most Hollywood stars aren't born into movies. They mold themselves into what they have become today, and that includes their very first role. We took a glimpse into the past to see what these A-list actors and actresses were doing in their first movie.

Angelina Jolie as Tosh in Lookin’ To Get Out (1982)
Can you believe the bodacious beauty came from such cute origins?

Harrison Ford as a Bellhop in Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round (1966)
The Indiana Jones star is looking might fine as a young bellhop, and I’m sure most people recognised him by his voice.

Scarlett Johansson as Laura Nelson in North (1994)
Another Hollywood beauty that got her first role as a little girl.

Queen Latifah as Lashawn in Jungle Fever (1991)
The Queen of Sass started out as a waitress to Blade star Wesley Snipes, serving him up with some of what made her famous.

Sofia Vergara as Nina in Big Trouble (2002)
Her first role in a movie and it involves having your feet licked by Stanley Tucci. You know she is dedicated to her work.

Henry Cavill as Thomas Aprea in Laguna (2001)
A very young and very scrawny Cavill debuts in this 2002 movie where instead of villains from Krypton he takes on the Italian Mafia.

Robert Downey Jr. as Puppy in Pound (1970)
It seems the Iron Man actor was born cheeky, as he is only five years old in this movie by the original Robert Downey.

Helena Bonham Carter as Lucy Honeychurch in A Room With A View (1985)
Imagine your first role in a feature film is an Academy hit like this one. She also stars alongside her future Harry Potter co-stars, Voldemort and McGonagall. 

Will Smith as Manny in Where The Day Takes You (1991)
Before there was The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, there was a run-away teenager in a wheelchair.

Steve Carell as Tesio in Curly Sue (1991)
It’s hard to see this Hollywood funny man in a non-talking role, and pretty much still looking the same as he does now.
