I love Angelina Jolie. My favorite actors are Al Pacino, M. Brando, and Robert Deniro.

Jennifer Garner (ok I admit it -- total and complete girl crush!) and Johnny Depp. JD is one of the few, rare actors that make me forget who they are and absorb me completely into their character. His 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' character? Creepy and . . . totally mesmerizing.

Hm. I don't have any one favorite ever. It just depends on the mood I'm in and the genre.

Favorites lately:
Laura Linney
Leonard di Caprio (he never did it for me as a sex-symbol but some of his latest roles I think he's been an incredible actor in)
Matt Damon (ditto the above)
Judi Dench (I haven't seen anything that I haven't thought she was great in)

Women...Annette Benning, Meg Ryan & Sandra Bullock

Men...hard one because I don't have a fav and not a lot that I care for. Maybe George Clooney, Denzel Washington abd Adam Sandler

Would be easier to answer who I don't like, lol

Really do not have any favorite that would really draw me to a theater. (although I do have to agree that I have never seen Judi Dench do anything but a spectacular job in any part.)

Not an actor but Dr Rey on Dr 90210 is absolutely gorgeous!

10-09-2008, 01:34 AM
actor- Christian Bale hands down, no one is better.
actress- Cate Blanchet

a close second on actresses is Lauren Ambrose- but it has more to do with wanting to look at her then with her talent - not that she isn't talented, just that even if she was in a bad movie I'd watch it so i could ogle her. hehe.

10-09-2008, 09:12 AM
Some of my all-time faves are Alan Rickman, Edward Norton, Don Cheadle, Harvey Keitel, Michael Caine, Sean Penn, Jeff Goldblum... Adrien Brody... oh, Bill Murray... I could go on...

Girl-crushes: Catherine Keener and Helen Mirren! I also like seeing pretty much any movie if it has Annette Bening, Gillian Anderson, Judi Dench or Cate Blanchett.

I like Drew Barrymore as an actress.

For actors, I like Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Steve Carrell, Ben Stiller, all the funny guys

Oh, so many. Mmmmmm, Alan Rickman could act the dictionary and I'd enjoy it. Jackie Chan always entertains me. Hugh Laurie. David Hewlett. Tom Hanks. Rowan Atkinson. I like Stephen Colbert so much I'd have his baby, but I understand his seed is no longer on the market.

Emma Thompson, also because I admire her writing, Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Gina Torres, Meg Ryan.

10-21-2008, 06:07 AM
tough question
Johnny Depp
Leonardo DiCaprio loved him as an actor since the gilbert grape movie
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Terence Howard
Hugh Laurie
James Woods
Freddie Highmore has been incredible in the few movies I've seen with him

Kate Winslet
Cate Blanchett
Nicole Kidman *sometimes
Natalie Portman *sometimes
Marion Cotillard (cant believe no one has mentioned her, SHE'S AMAZING)
Meryl Streep
Amanda Seyfried, even though she hasn't done anything spectacular, I just feel this huge talent in her. I really liked her in Mean Girls. IMHO she stole that movie with the "my breasts can always tell when its gonna rain. Well they can tell when it's raining" line.. lol.
Helena Bonham Carter

ah so many great actors and performances
