The entertainment industry is ever-evolving, but certain actors have stood the test of time and remain successful today. These stalwarts have not only captivated audiences with their performances but also adapted to the changing times.

Meryl Streep
Arguably one of the most gifted actresses of our time, she began her career in the late ’70s with a supporting role in Julia, but it was her heart-wrenching performance in Kramer vs. Kramer that shot her to stardom. Over the years, Streep has showcased her versatility with roles in films like The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia!, and The Iron Lady, earning multiple Academy Awards and many more nominations.[1]

Morgan Freeman

With his iconic voice and commanding screen presence, Morgan Freeman is another actor who has enjoyed long-standing success. Freeman’s breakthrough role came in 1987 with Street Smart, which earned him an Academy Award nomination. His roles in The Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby, and the Dark Knight trilogy have solidified his position as one of Hollywood’s most respected actors.[1]

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks is a prime example of an actor who has maintained his relevance over the decades. From his charming turn in Big to his memorable performances in Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and Saving Private Ryan, Hanks has demonstrated an ability to blend seamlessly into any role. His recent portrayal of Fred Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood reminds us of his enduring talent.[2]

Danny Devito

There is something unmistakably endearing about Danny Devito, who stole the show in Taxi and Throw Momma from the Train during the ’80s. Today, he still captivates audiences with his role in the long-running TV series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Despite his unconventional Hollywood persona, Devito has proven his staying power.[2]

Winona Ryder

Winona has made a successful transition from a ’90s icon to a contemporary star.
