[post_page_title]Daniel Day-Lewis – Lincoln[/post_page_title]
There is no denying that Daniel Day-Lewis is a Hollywood icon. In 2012, Daniel was chosen to take on the role of the former President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.
To get properly into character, Daniel forced Steven Spielberg, his co-stars, and the crew to call him “Mr. President” at all times. It seems as though these diva demands worked in his favor because Lincoln went on to be a huge success and Daniel even won himself an Academy Award for his role in the movie. You can’t complain about that, can you?
[post_page_title]Samuel L. Jackson – Snakes on a Plane[/post_page_title]
Samuel L. Jackson is considered one of the most impeccable actors on this planet, but he can be pretty darn intense. One of his most famous roles to date came in 2006 when he was cast as FBI Agent Neville Flynn in the action thriller movie, Snakes on a Plane.
He loved the idea so much that when he discovered the studio was going to change the name, he convinced them not to. His demands didn’t stop there. Snakes on a Plane was originally meant to be a PG-13 movie, but Samuel wasn’t content with that and pushed for more violence. It was eventually re-branded with an R rating.
