Nowadays, for roles in action films, actors only need to be in good shape and take a few weeks of classes with an instructor. The rest is competent directing. But in the '90s, the genre had an emphasis on the main characters: you had to be professional in the martial arts and convincingly compete with dozens of enemies.
One part of the actors from the favorite childhood movies are still active, and the other - has chosen a measured life. Let's recall in the OBOZREVATEL material how these legends of cinema have changed.
Arnold Schwarzenegger (75 years).
American bodybuilder, movie actor and producer, businessman and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger, star of the movie "Terminator", from 2003 to 2011 was governor of California. After criticism of his political activities, however, he decided to return to filmmaking. He took part in high-budget action films such as Unstoppable 2. And even at the age of 75, he remains on fire. He starred in the spy-adventure TV series "FUBAR" (Netflix), which premiered on May 25, 2023.
2. Bruce Willis (age 68)
American film actor Bruce Willis, best known for his role as John McClane in the "Die Hard" movie series, starred in the 2022 American action film "Mission Assassin," released March 31, 2023 in limited release and online. This is the film legend's latest work. Not long ago, Bruce announced the end of his career due to central nervous system disease (frontotemporal dementia).
3. Sylvester Stallone (age 76)
American actor, director and screenwriter Sylvester Stallone became popular thanks to the "Rocky" and "Rambo" movie series. He still devotes a lot of time to sports, so due to his good physical shape he is actively invited to shoot - and Stallone does not think about refusing. For example, the American action film "The Expendables 4" will be released in 2023.
4. Chuck Norris (age 83)
American actor and martial artist Chuck Norris was a popular performer in leading roles in action films. One of his most famous characters is Texas Ranger Cordell Walker from the TV series of the same name. The movie star is still, at the age of 83, in great physical shape and works out regularly.
