Sometimes, they are reason enough to watch a movie one wouldn’t be interested in seeing otherwise and always, they are a delight to watch: Favorite actors. Everyone has favorites she enjoys watching more than others. Who are yours and why?
Off the top of my head Ellen Page, Bale, Chloe Moretz Downey Jr, Noomi Rapace, Bullock. I'll watch pretty much anything they're in.
I probably could have given some reasons for my choices but most of them should be pretty obvious. Ellen Page - Great in everything she's in. Seems down to earth in interviews, relatable and actually has range (ie: Hard Candy). Just a pleasure to watch on the screen. Also cute as hell. Christian Bale - I've yet to see him give a bad performance. Batman, Rescue Dawn, The Machinist, American Psycho etc... all great. Chloe Moretz - Scene stealer in everything she's in. She carried Kick-Ass like a boss and it was her first big role. Massive acting range at the age of 14. I hope Hollywood doesn't run her into the ground. Downey Jr. - Fun to watch. I don't think I've seen him give a bad performance yet. I even thought he did a good job in Due Date even though everybody else seemed to hate it. Also a very funny guy. Noomi - To be honest the only film of hers I've seen is the Millenium Trilogy but that's only because she's brand new in the States. I want to see Sherlock Holmes 2 purely off the fact that she's in it and I didn't even like the first one. Bullock - One of the few actresses I actually think deserve the success they've gotten. Probably top 5 funniest chicks in hollywood. Depp too but I think everyone is burned out on Depp or at least just a little bit. Portman - Just watch Leon. Really just watch it.
Robert Downey Jr
That's just right off the top of my head right now
Christian Bale- because of the batman movies Johnny Depp- funny and can portray just about anything. Edward Norton- he's just a very good actor.. Will Ferrel- funny
Danny Trejo most badass Mexican Alive
He is good isn't he?
I forgot to say why I thought they were great on my picks.
1. RDjr.-even when he was in trouble in his younger days, he was able to do his acting well. He could do drama, comedy, and had a dry sense of humor about him.
2.Ryan Reynold-he's always been funny and I like funny but he had me when I saw him in Smokin Aces...
3.George Clooney -he brings a maturity to his roles. You look into his eyes and you believe everything he's saying.
4.Johnny Depp-Can play any character you ask of him to play. good, bad, funny, mean, horrible...the lines on his face and his eyes will change and he will make you see that person he's protraying.
5.Angelina Jolie-Best darn action female actress. She is not afraid of getting dirty and she can also play whatever part you give her.
6.Sandra Bullock -So sweet and so funny. I don't see romantic comedies unless she is the one in them because to me they are just comedies. She makes me forget my troubles.
Ellen Page- She's just getting started but she's already shown she can do funny and drama and I'm waiting to see more.
They forgot Midnight Cowboy and Tootsie for Dustin Hoffman...c'mon man!
Robert Redford - Not only a great actor but superb director - Spy Game, A River Runs Through It, Sneakers, The Last Castle, etc. etc.
Sandra Bullock - I've been a huge fan since Practical Magic and she's done other awesome movies...and some not so awesome...but I still love her - Practical Magic, A Time To Kill, Blind Side, Hope Floats (yes depressing but still very good).
Anton Yelchin - He's going to be a force to be reckoned with. He's so young but soooo talented. Not to mention he's gorgeous!! - Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Charlie Bartlett, Alpha Dog.
Joseph Gordon Levitt - grew up acting but has never let it get to his head. He has done mostly artsy films so I think he's better for it. - Mysterious Skin, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Inception, Havoc, Brick, 500 days of summer.
Natalie Portman - I fell in love with Natalie when I watched Anywhere But Here. She had such an emotional role and she did so well. I've really enjoyed a lot of her movies. - Anywhere But Here, Black Swan, V for Vendetta, Garden State, Leon.
Audrey Tatou - Now I haven't seen everything from her but I'm trying. - Amelie, Coco Before Chanel, Da Vinci Code.
Agreed with Natalie Portman. She did a fantastic job in every film I've seen her in. She even managed to make Your Highness halfway watchable.
