We often think that it is easier for young actors and actresses to get their breakthrough roles when they are young, but these 9 celebrities prove that theory dead wrong! They were all over the age of 30 when they landed that coveted role that brought them international recognition!
9. Steve Carell
Steve Carell’s big break came in 2005 when he was 43 years old. He was offered a starring role on the mockumentary series The Office, which ran until 2013. This led to other roles in movies like Get Smart, Date Night, Foxcatcher (which earned him an Oscar nod) and The Big Short.
