Movie Stars Revisit Their Famous Role (13 photos)

Mel Gibson – Braveheart

Some actors were born to play a role. With stunning performances, these stars captivate us, move us, and leave us with an enormous impression, even after the end of a film.

These photos were taken for Empire Magazine's 20th birthday issue. They gathered some of Hollywood's biggest movie stars and photographed them in a role that brought out the very best in them. Here are some of my favorite shots.

Sam Neill – Jurassic Park

Arnold Schwarzenegger – Terminator

Laurence Fishburne – The Matrix

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint – Harry Potter

Ben Stiller – Zoolander

Matt Damon – Bourne Trilogy

Gerard Butler – 300 and Christian Bale – American Psycho

Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster – Silence of the Lambs

Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman – Unforgiven
