It’s exciting that Rob and Mia will have several scenes together. We saw a glimpse of them on set HERE and check out the high praise for their work in lists showcasing the 25 best actors today in their 20s.
From Complex and including the introductions for the list:
25 Best Actors in the 20s: Actors
The roster of active young Hollywood hopefuls is endless, so as an actor, how do you distinguish yourself from the your? Simple: talent. It takes more than a pretty face and the ability to deliver a line to be the next George Clooneyor Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington. To make it past a a string of CW shows and/or acne commercials, it takes actual skill, palpable charisma, and the proverbial X factor. If you want to know what that looks like, just check out these young performers: The 25 Best Actors in their 20s.
Notable Role: Eric Packer in Cosmopolis (2012)
The actor who became famous for portraying a sparkly vampire is so much more than just the pretty face on your little sister’s Teen Bop magazine. As his icy work in Cronenberg’s adaption of Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolisdemonstrated, Pattinson is a talented actor, and more than capable of carrying a film. While the world was distracted by his romantic life, Pattinson was busy sharpening his skills in more respectable films such Little Ashesand Bel Ami. He is currently working on smaller independent projects.
25 Best Actresses in their 20s: Actresses
Meryl Streep is over. Just kidding. Don’t hurt us! Truce! But really though, she can’t win everything. Eventually, she’ll get tired, want to settle down somewhere along the Santa Barbara coast, and give up her spot on the Academy Award stage to a bright-eyed newbie who’s been practicing her acceptance speech in front of a mirror since she was a kid—which, as it turns out wasn’t that long ago. And it’s not like that newbie is undeserving either.
There’s a crop of talent in Hollywood who are well-deserving of the praise Cate Blanchett, Audrey Hepburn, Halle Berry, and every other storied star they look up to gets. They’re full of ability and have proven themselves in quality roles that reveal much about their future potential.
These are all of the young women gunning for that coveted Oscar gold. These are the 25 best actresses in their 20s.
Notable role: India Stoker in Stoker (2013)
Take a look at Mia Wasikowska’s filmography. She’s got every genre covered, and plays it to a tee. Fantasy? She nailed the whimsical restlessness of Alice in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Period piece? Watch her quiet performance in Jane Eyre. Thriller? All you need to do is preview the trailer of Stoker to see how menacing she can be. If you’re too intimidated to pronounce her name, just call her the Queen of Versatility.
David Cronenberg knows how to pick the best of the best! Can’t wait to see them in Maps To The Stars.
