12 Roles That Became Both a Blessing and a Curse for the Actors Who Played Them



It’s no secret that some actors are best known for 1 role and simply can’t break free of their iconic parts. They often play other characters brilliantly, but unfortunately, are remembered for one role. For example, we don’t recall Renee Zellweger, but rather, Bridget Jones, and instead of Colin Firth, we remember Mr. Darcy…

Bright Side hopes these actors will have a chance to escape the character they’re most recognized for. What do you think about this? Tell us in the comments!

Renée Zellweger — Bridget Jones, Bridget Jones’s Diary

Though her role in the musical, Chicago was lively and entertaining, Zellweger will always be known as Bridget Jones. The character proved to be very relatable for many women.

Sheryl Lee — Laura Palmer, Twin Peaks

Initially, the role of Laura Palmer was supposed to be episodic, but film director David Lynch liked Lee’s acting so much, he decided to add more scenes with her and even created a film where the actress could show off her talent. Unfortunately, Lee hasn’t had any remarkable roles since then.

Rupert Grint — Ron Weasley, Harry Potter

Rupert Grint is a really great actor who had already performed in several films since the Harry Potter movies first came out, but unfortunately, people only remember him as the main character’s best friend. We hope that Grint will demonstrate his talent in other amazing films.

Viggo Mortensen — Aragorn, The Lord of the Rings

Viggo Mortensen has had many good roles, including an impressive one in Green Book, but we have to admit, he’ll always be Aragorn to us.

Chris Tucker — Ruby Rhod, The Fifth Element

Though his role in Rush Hour with Jackie Chan was very charismatic, everyone remembers Tucker as Ruby from The Fifth Element. That’s because Ruby Rhod is probably one of the most remarkable comedic characters from the fantastic film genre.

Audrey Tautou — Amelie, Amelie

Audrey Tautou has almost managed to get rid of the image of “the weird girl”, but just can’t manage to do so. While her roles in The Da Vinci Code and Coco Before Chanel were really impressive, in our minds, we’ll always associate her with Amelie.

Colin Firth — Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice

Colin Firth is one of the most talented British actors around, and his list of roles is never-ending. But his performance as Mr. Darcy has conquered women’s hearts forever.

Jennifer Aniston — Rachel Green, Friends

Undoubtedly, Jennifer Aniston is an amazing actress, but after Friends, she didn’t have any significant or vivid roles. We hope that this will eventually change.

Jim Parsons — Sheldon Cooper, The Big Bang Theory

Sheldon’s image has strongly “stuck” to the actor and it may be the reason why he decided to quit his role in The Big Bang Theory that led to the show’s ultimate end.

Robert Downey Jr. — Iron Man, Marvel films

Robedr Downey Jr., like the Phoenix bird, rose from the ashes and portrayed one of the brightest Marvel characters around. The actor has played many roles (including Sherlock Holmes), but it’s Tony Stark who will stay in our hearts forever.

Adrian Paul — Duncan MacLeod, Highlander

After his role as Duncan in Highlander, Adrian Paul never managed to reach the same level of success again. The majority of his films are unknown amongst most people. But it’s worth noting: do you wonder if Paul has ever really changed while looking at his photos?

Tom Hiddleston — Loki, Marvel films

Tom Hiddleston is an incredibly handsome actor who used to work with prominent film directors. According to rumors, he may even be the next James Bond. But unfortunately, as of now, Loki is the most memorable role the British actor has played. Despite this, we believe that Hiddleston will impress fans with new, charming characters.

Have we forgotten to add anyone to the list?

Research Says That People Who Blush Are More Generous and Trustworthy




Some people feel uncomfortable when they blush, because they believe that this reaction of their body makes them appear timid and insecure. However, the reality is very different, because blushing can make us look more sincere and trustworthy to other people.

Today, we at Bright Side would like to tell you why blushing is not a sign of weakness, as many used to think.

Humans are the only ones that blush.

Humans are the only species known to blush, according to the findings of Darwin. After observing the gestures of monkeys, while conducting his studies on evolution — he defined this reaction as “the most peculiar and the most human of all expressions,” that probably happens because of a social defense mechanism that humans create against feelings like guilt or shame.

It makes you more attractive to the opposite sex.

The truth is that, although it could be a social defense mechanism that speaks to our discomfort, we are more attractive when our cheeks begin to turn pink. This gesture reflects a bit of vulnerability, and it’s for that very reason that it also creates a sense of intimacy that is striking to the opposite sex. In addition, it makes us look radiant, which is why, when putting on makeup, we apply pink powder on our cheeks.

People who blush are more trustworthy.

According to a study that has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people who blush easily are people who are considered to be trustworthy and more generous, compared to those who don’t react in the same way. The researchers of this study also claim that other forms of moderately expressing embarrassment and social vulnerability are true signs of virtue, since it’s not possible to reproduce these reactions voluntarily.

Other gestures that reveal our emotional state

In a series of experiments, 60 college students were videotaped recounting embarrassing moments. The results indicated that blushing generates trust in other people and that’s why we shouldn’t try to hide it. This investigation includes people who react with gestures like a downward gaze, covering their face, laughing involuntarily, and blushing at the slightest provocation.

Why we blush when we feel embarrassed

Our face turns red because when we are in an embarrassing situation, the body releases adrenaline, which is what causes the redness of the skin, as it increases the blood flow to the blood vessels. This process is linked to our sympathetic nervous system and, for this reason, we can’t control it. We can also feel our heart rate speed up, our breathing increase its frequency, and in some people it can cause them to start sweating.

When it comes to blushing, it’s impossible to lie.

Blushing is something that we, human beings, are unable to avoid. It’s a set of involuntary bodily functions that are unleashed when we are exposed to a situation that embarrasses us, although not always in an unpleasant way. But it always shows that something matters to us and that, if we’ve done something wrong, we do have the desire to fix it. Because of this, this reaction is linked to honesty. So, if you see your partner blushing, you should believe in what your eyes are seeing.

Do you blush very often? Do you find it embarrassing or is it something that doesn’t worry you too much? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
