Most of us would remember Viggo Mortensen for his portrayal of Aragorn in the now-classic Lord of the Rings Trilogy. In it, you’ll often see him riding a horse like a boss.

Miley Cyrus was just a doe-eyed kid when she got worldwide fame with her role in the hit TV show Hannah Montana. Nowadays, she’s become one of the most creative and unique artists in the industry.
