Marlon Brando was an American actor, considered to be one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time. The main male sex symbol in Hollywood during the mid-1950s, Brando was more than a film personality—he was a cultural icon and the heartthrob of generations of women across the globe. Strikingly handsome and talented, he almost became synonymous with the character of Stanley Kowalski which he portrayed in the much acclaimed movie, ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’. This role earned him an Academy Award nomination and established him as one of the foremost leading men in Hollywood. Later on he won an Academy Award for playing Terry Malloy in ‘On the Waterfront’, a performance regarded as one of his finest. Over the years, he appeared in several more films which were critical as well as commercial successes and cemented his reputation as one of the greatest ever stars in Hollywood. Brando was also an activist who supported many causes, including the African-American Civil Rights Movement and various American Indian Movements. Over the course of his career he had earned the reputation of being a “Bad Boy” due to his over-indulgence, excessive womanizing, and public outbursts. But nothing could dampen the affection the audiences had for this charming and good-looking actor
