5. Gene Wilder at 82.
The 82-year-old American actor from Milwaukee was born in 1933. After his starring role as the infamous Willy Wonka in the 1971 film directed by Mel Stuart, the talented star continued to perform in movies throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s. However, it's this quirky role that he will perhaps always be best remembered for. Picture: PA Picture: splash
