Award-winning actor Mark Ruffalo has an impressive list of appearances on both the stage and the big screen. It’s understandable, then, that he may have shared projects with other big names in the past. But Ruffalo didn’t know that he once worked on a film with his current fellow superhero Brie Larson.
If you’re a movie buff or a Ruffalo fan, you’re probably familiar with the illustrious actor’s romcom career. Before he became a big name in the Marvel Comics Universe (M.C.U.), Ruffalo was warming romantics’ hearts in feel-good films. In fact, he was the male lead in several such movies during the 2000s.
Long before their Marvel Studios connection, Ruffalo starred alongside Gwyneth Paltrow in 2003’s View From the Top. But this wasn’t the only time that the actor’s past roles have linked him to movies based on comics. Indeed, in 2004 he appeared in 13 Going on 30 alongside female co-star Jennifer Garner.
