2012’s Summer Movie All-Stars


Bruce Willis ExpendablesThere are likely a few faces you’ve seen at the movies this summer and thought, “Wow, this person is in a ton of movies right now.” Take for example, Jeremy Renner in The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy, or Joseph Gordon-Levitt with The Dark Knight Rises and Premium Rush, and this week, Bruce Willis with The Expendables 2 and Moonrise Kingdom

Some people are just working overtime. Here are our favorite hard-working summer movie stars. There’s no award for a summer of hard work (other than, you know, money) so a place in this gallery will have to do.
Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
