Our Favorite Inanimate Objects that Stole the Show in Movies...

Don't get me wrong, actors are great but sometimes a very special thing happens in the world of movie magic - and that's when an inanimate object steals the show.

Doesn't matter who the object is sharing a scene with, somehow the object becomes the star.

The silver screen's history features countless examples of this, the ruby red slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Reese's Pieces in E.T., and even the horse head from The Godfather. These objects manage to take on a life more real than even people they're acting with.

Who can forget the plastic bag from American Beauty? That Plastic Bag deserves its very own TMZ style Where Are They Now? Did fame go to its head? Being the hottest plastic bag in Hollywood is no easy feat, and American Beauty's Plastic Bag deserves respect and possibly its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for all it has accomplished.

The legacy of the Plastic Bag highlights the transformative power of movie making in all its glory. Even more than 10 years on, any time a plastic bag floats in a breeze, we don't think: “Someone needs to clean up the streets.” We think: "That's art.” Great movie, but an even better plastic bag.

And while the plastic bag's pedestal sits so high, another object rises above it: Wilson.

No list of objects that are also really good actors is complete without Wilson. We all remember Tom Hanks in Castaway, but our memory of him is eclipsed by the harrowing performance by his best friend, confidant, and co-conspirator... who also happened to be a volleyball.

Wilson stole the show, we laughed with him and we cried with Tom Hanks when Wilson floated away. Wilson was the star of the show, and it's the power of movies that dares our imaginations to feel for anything and everything – even a ridiculous volleyball.
