He also played Private Adrian Caparzo in Saving Private Ryan, and you may not have known that he was the voice of the Iron Giant in 1999!

3. Bruce Willis Then

Bruce Willis got his start in showbiz in the 1970s, as both an actor and singer on the stage. But it wasn’t until he scored a leading role in the series Moonlighting in the ’80s that he gained proper fame. The show starred Willis and Cybill Shepherd as two private detectives and is thought of as the first commercially successful work of “dramedy” to grace the screen.

Bruce Willis’s head just looks like it was made to be bald, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky! After Die Hard, his reputation as an iconic action/thriller star was solidified, and he went on to star in other classics including Pulp Fiction, The Sixth Sense, and Last Man Standing. Something you may not have known is that Willis is also a singer, having recorded an album in 1987. He made his Broadway debut in 2015 in the stage adaptation of Misery.

5. Ben Kingsley Then

As you can see here, Ben Kingsley did once have hair – even if not very much of it! The iconic British actor got his start in showbiz on television in the 1960s but worked his way up to earning numerous awards and accolades. Today he is perhaps best known for portraying Mohandas Gandhi in Richard Attenborough’s 1982 film Gandhi, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Kingsley initially shaved his head for his portrayal of Gandhi, but apparently he really dug his new look, and he’s stuck with it ever since! The only thing that’s really changed is his facial hair styling which has gotten progressively more villainous over the years but if there’s anyone who can rock the villain look, it’s Ben Kingsley.
