Films Based on Real People

155 biographical films - this is a collection of movies based on real life movie stars, musicians, criminals, activists, politicians and more (some loosely based). All were released between 1980 and 2015.
This is the first list challenge I've created. I hope you enjoy it. If you think of a movie that you wish had been on this list, feel free to share it in the comments section. I might create a part 2, in the future.
