Six Actors who did not get the Fame They Probably Deserve

Six Actors who did not get the Fame They Probably Deserve

You may happily enjoy their appearance whenever their faces pop up on the big screen, but these actors have not gotten the fame that they probably deserve. Having proven their acting prowess in one or two noteworthy films, the limelight gradually moved away from them, as they were either shifted to the background or became a part of multi-casting films.

Here are six actors who are not as famous as they should be, yet at some point in time got into the public eye for their performances.


1. Audrey Tautou

It seems that after the success of The Da Vinci Code in 2006, Audrey Tautou has not appeared in any similar Hollywood blockbuster. Her acting skills are confined more to French cinema.

In 2001 there was Amelie, which gained her huge acclaim for being original. The film was loved by the audience. Then there were Pot Luck (2004) and Priceless (2006), for which she obtained mixed responses, as well as A Very Long Engagement, wherein she was just a part of a multi-national cast. No one can deny the charm that she adds to the screen for every project, however difficult it might be.


2. Christina Ulloa

This California-born actress bagged good roles in the films Black, Military Husband, 247 degrees F, Holiday Road and the latest The Wedding Invitation which is yet to be released. All of these films are unique in characterization and Christina Ulloa did her best job in them. Although she did not get much notice on the big screen, she is a popular face in a number of television series like Bones, Greek, Californication, Charmed, Dark Blue, and more.

3. Sam Rockwell

When The Seven Psychopaths was released in 2012, it did not receive much positive response. It was indeed a good film and one more reason to watch it was the rocking performance of Sam Rockwell as the obsessive and unhinged, yet likable and friendly Billy. He also did a good amount of impressive acting in Moon, The Way Way Back, and The Assassination of Jesse James by Coward Robert Ford.


4. Emile Hirsch

This actor of Into the Wild fame that was released in 2007 has not been a part of anything so popular and well-accepted since then. In spite of his commendable acting as Christopher McCandless in this film, Emile Hirsch has to date not been able to bag any other meaty role although he has appeared in The Motel Life and Prince Avalanche. However, anybody who remembers Into the Wild will definitely agree that Hirsch deserves more.

5. Christine Adams

London-born Christine Adams is a film and television actress. Since the beginning of the 2000s, she has acted in a number of British and American television series and films. Her career includes movies like Eye of the Dolphin, Batman Begins, Submerged, Tron: Legacy, Willows, and more, which received mixed reviews and brought her average amounts of recognition, though there’s no question about her acting skills. She also has had a lot of television series in her kitty including Doctor Who, My Family, Casualty, and Love Soup, amongst others as well as the unsuccessful Americana.


6. Cillian Murphy

Cillian Murphy is an occasional face in action blockbusters, but nevertheless he is much loved in Inception as Robert Fischer and in the Batman series as Dr. Jonathan Crane. If you have seen his movies you will surely agree that behind his strange blue eyes is concealed some real acting skill. In the film Sunshine, which unfortunately went unnoticed, Murphy perfectly played the role of the scared, yet responsible scientist.

 Above is a list of celebrities who were excellent in their performances but were not able to get the fame they deserved over an extended period of time.

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:


Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.


    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.


    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.


      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
