Sometimes actors have a certain type of acting style. While some actors just do the same thing in every movie.
You may not notice it the first time. Maybe not even in the second movie but, once you see it in every movie they have ever done it seems pretty hard not to ignore their lack of imagination or creativity. But, at the same time, don't fix something if it's not broken.
Here are 10 famous actors that do the same thing in every movie.

10. Samuel L. Jackson loves to rant and yell
You could see Samuel L. Jackson screaming in Pulp Fiction, Deep Blue Sea, A Time To Kill, Snakes on a Plane, The Negotiator, Django Unchained, Losing Isaiah, Unbreakable, and even The Spirit.
But, at the same time, he made his career in the Quentin Tarantino movie, 'Pulp Fiction'. With a monologue that starts with "Ezekiel 25:17" and ends with a gun shoot out, it takes a special type of actor.
9. Shia LaBeouf Loves to say "No! No! No! No!"
Shia LaBeouf reminds me of a child that doesn't get his way. In Transformers 1-3, Disturbia, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and Eagle Eye he keeps saying "No! No! No! No!"
He usually says it when he is shocked or about to get killed. It's pretty interesting, or just really weird.
8. Harrison Ford loves to Point
Harrisn Ford loves to point, you can see it in Star Wars, The Mosquito Coast, Witness, Clear and Present Danger, K-19: The Widow Maker, Extraordinary Measures, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Air Force One.
In Hollywood, it is called the "Finger of Doom,". He does it every time he's angry at someone or wants to threaten their life.

7. Michelle Rodriguez always dies in the movie.
Michelle Rodriguez is the one actress you can count on will not make it to the sequel. You could see it happen in The Fast and the Furious, Avatar, Lost, BloodRayne, and Resident Evil. But, there is one thing for certain she is always the tougher than the other male characters. She is like an early Arnold Schwarzenegger before Arnold did Junior and played a pregnant dad.

6. Jeff Goldblum, "uuhh?"
Every single Jeff Goldblum, he does the infamous "uh" and "um" in every word or sentence. Quite frankly, he did this a ton of times in 'Independence Day' and 'Jurassic Park'. Once, you see it, it is something you can't really get past when you watch him in any movie.
5. Johnny Depp loves wearing a hat
Johny Depp wears a hat in Pirates of the Caribbean 1-4, Alice In Wonderland, The Lone Ranger, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Rum Diary, Public Enemies, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Platoon, and Dead Man.
Some actors need to have props, like Ryan Gosling. But, it makes you wonder if it is in Johnny Depp's contract that he has to wear a hat in every movie he is in. Just try searching for 'Johnny Depp no hat' and you will find maybe one or two pictures.
After you realize that he wears hats in all of his movies, you can understand why he played 'The Mad Hatter' in Alice in Wonderland.

4. Keanu Reeves loves to say Whoa
You can see it happen in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Point Break, Speed, The Devil’s Advocate, and The Matrix. Maybe it is tough to leave the career of 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' behind but, he loves to throw a 'whoa' in every movie. There are very few actors that can say "whoa" like this guy.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio will raise his glass in a movie
It was not until recently, that he started to do this. But, it is pretty apparent that it is a trademarked 'DiCaprio' acting technique. You can see it happen in Titanic, The Man With The Iron Mask, Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby, and The Wolf of Wall Street
In three moves in less than two years, he raised his glass including Django, The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street
2. Mel Gibson Flashes his Butt
Mel Gibson should be known as a nudist as often he gets naked for the camera. It happens so often, you wonder if the scene actually calls for it, or if he is improving the entire time. He did it in Gallipoli, Braveheart, Lethal Weapon, Lethal Weapon 2, Lethal Weapon 3, Bird on a Wire, Forever Young, and What Women Want.
1. Denzel Washington always says "My Man"
Denzel Washington loves to say "My Man" it can be the end of the world in The Book of Eli
or Training Day,
Denzel Washington will say it. Every Denzel Washington movie he does this. But, hey if it's not broken don't fix it.
