Stanley Tucci has been a working actor for nearly 40 years, and stans of the beloved star are uniting to praise his talented range as a performer. Tucci made his film debut in the 1985 movie Prizzi's Honor, a dark comedy-crime film that starred Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner. He would later go on to appear in many high-profile and critically acclaimed films, such as Road to Perdition (2002), The Terminal (2004), and The Devil Wears Prada (2006).

He has also be praised for brilliant-yet-wildly dissimilar performances in films like The Lovely Bones, Easy A, and Spotlight.

"Fun fact: [Tucci] said he'd only take The Lovely Bones role if they made him unrecognizable since he didn't want to be associated with that creep," one fan wrote of Tucci. "Related: Mark Wahlberg got that role last minute. Peter Jackson fired Ryan Gosling for his decision to gain 60 lbs for the character lol."prevnext

Julie and Julia is an imperfect movie, but Tucci and Streep give one of the best depictions of a marriage (as opposed to falling in love) on film.— tesol8 (@tesol81) April 5, 2021
"I could not watch another movie of his for the longest time after I watched The Lovely Bones," a fan shared. "I hated him so much and I was so scared of him. Then I saw Easy A and I was OK after that.. Still can't watch Lovely Bones."prevnext
He is PHENOMENAL in First Avenger.— Marc Deschamps (@Marcdachamp) April 5, 2021
"The Tucc being in Transformers with Mark Wahlberg was so funny to me after seeing Lovely Bones," somebody else tweeted. "There is honestly a cut someone can make with those two movies where Mark gets justice or even revenge for his daughter."prevnext
