Hollywood is the most coveted place to be in the entire world and millions try their hardest to break into the massive film industry every year. Actors and actresses from across the globe try their luck just to be turned away.
Here’s a rundown of 6 foreign superstars that managed to crack the big time where so many others have failed.
Sharlto Copley is the newest foreign superstar on the rise. The South African producer, actor and director has produced and co-directed short films so far in his career, before making the move over to Hollywood.
Most known for his role in Elysium alongside Matt Damon and ready to pierce our screens in Disney’s Maleficent, enthralling Sharlto is looking towards a very busy 2014.
Penélope Cruz began her stint in the limelight in Spanish TV and music videos before she really hit the Hollywood big time.
The Spanish born actress is well known for her “damsel in distress” type characters.
Born in Puerto Rico, Benicio Del Toro stepped into the Hollywood limelight in the mid 90’s where he gained mainstream acclaim in many diverse roles. As with Arnie, suave Benicio is still a busy man today and has more than earned his place on the silver screen.
