What famous, professional actors started acting in their mid30s or older?


I am finding myself wishing i had followed my heart, inspiration and interest in acting more when I was younger and taken more acting classes and acted starting as a teenager.
As it is, I am now 37 years of age, and so far only took two acting classes in high school in late 80s, a short stage combat class and part of several basic acting classes at two community colleges in the San Francisco bay area during past few years.

While I’ve been told by some acting coaches i seem to have a certain natural talent and presence for acting, and for film acting I wish Id continued training as a teenager and beyond.

Are there any professional, good actors or actresses in film who have both honed their craft as well as made it to the top in film acting roles who started acting later in life, like in their 30s’?
Who are they?

    You have enough training to go on right now, get out their and start auditioning for parts, the more you audition the more familiar your face will become to the casting directors, and soon someone will hire you. If you like films start as a extra and build a resume. The only person that comes to mind is Charles Bronson, he was 38 before he made his first major film.
