Actors who have (suprisingly) never worked together in a movie?

Meryl Streep and Daniel Day Lewis

Strange how the two most acclaimed actors of our generation have never appeared in a movie together.


Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino

With their long and varied careers you'd think they would have landed up in the same project at some point, but nada.


Tom Cruise and Robert DeNiro

Do these guys not like each other? Wonder how they've never ended up in at least one film together.


Any others?

James Caan and Robert DeNiro have never acted with each other on screen, although both were in The Godfather II of course. I only noticed because DeNiro has worked with all of his other Corleone "sons."

I've always wondered given they're both good friends with Spielberg, why the 2 Toms--Cruise and Hanks--have never worked together.

I'll go the opposite way and focus on the ladies. It's probably tougher to get two A list ladies in the same flick.

How about Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts? If they've been in something together, I'm drawing a blank. Toss in a 'in her prime' Meg Ryan. Three queens of RomCom that never crossed paths.

Well Sly did try to get Jackie Chan for one of the Expendables movies. As a consolation, they were both investors in Planet Hollywood.

I think most people wondered this for a long time, especially when both were ruling the 90s. However, I believe Cruise and Spielberg had a big falling out in the mid-2000s. Surprise surprise, it was over some Scientology bullshit.

I'd pay good money to see Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton in a movie together. And no, Benjamin Button doesn't count.

Charlie Chaplin and Brad Pitt.

Surprised Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren never worked with Deniro or Pacino.
