Male actors under 25
Hey people, What’s up!
Recently, Vulture has published a report regarding the drought of leading male actors. Till now in the past few decades, fifteen women have been honored with the Oscar nominations, and only three male nominations were there i.e., Jake Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger, and Ryan Gosling.
