A growing trend in Hollywood is the creation of movies and shows about various famous people. Of course, actors and actresses need to portray these roles. Who else would act in a movie? Really popular movies created about some legendary people include, My Week With Marilyn, Walk the Line, Lovelace, and Soul Surfer. Michelle Williams looked incredibly similar to Marilyn Monroe in her role.

One movie that is said to be really inspiring is Soul Surfer. AnnaSophia Robb plays surfer, Bethany Hamilton who lost her arm due to an accident with a shark. Despite the obstacles in her way, she manages to get back to her beloved sport while learning how to cope with having just one arm.

Minka Kelly and James Marsden are in the process of filming a movie called The Butler. The two will be starring as former President John F. Kennedy and former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. They’re not the only two phenomenal actors who will be starring in the movie. Alex Pettyfer, Robin Williams, and Alan Rickman will be joining them as well. With a superstar cast like that, you know the final product will be awesome! 

I wonder if these actors realize that someday there will be movies made about their lives someday. Maybe not within the next decade, but eventually I’m sure it will happen.
