That I’d watch in pretty much anything.
Inspired from a post over at Where The Wild Things Are and then also at Cinema Parrot Disco, I have chosen to compile the idea from both male and female ‘actors’ rather than doing separate lists… mainly because I was struggling with ten for actresses without being swayed by their attractive qualities…it’s a bloke thing.
Favourite movie: Easy A
Favourite movie: Catch Me If You Can
Favourite movie: Inglorious Basterds
Favourite movie: Inception
Philip Seymour Hoffman (R.I.P.)
Favourite movie: Almost Famous
Favourite movie: Boogie Nights
Favourite movie: Born of the Fourth of July
Favourite movie: Fight Club
Samuel L Jackson
Favourite movie: Pulp Fiction
Favourite movie: Blue Jasmine
There are many more, but these are the ones I tend to find myself watching regardless of what role they are in, and the movies mentioned above are the roles I have most enjoyed them in, not necessarily their best. For actors I tend to avoid…the list is shorter, but I’m not a fan of Keira Knightley, Angelina Jolie, Jack Black and to an extent … Ben Affleck.
Some great names in there.
Yep, you have fine taste and great choices! Kate Blanchett is the best actor out there. However, I can’t believe how arresting Marianne Cotillard is.
Good choices! Thanks for joining in.
Nice cross-section of performers, there. I really dig the variety. I’m a big Blanchett fan as well. She’s stellar in everything.
I was inspired to make my own favorite actor/actress list. Mine is a bit longer though, it was hard to narrow down. I agree with most of your choices. I don’t like Emma Stone very much now though, she was ruined in my eyes in Magic in the Moonlight.
I suddenly want to see that one now! Thanks to you and everyone else for your comments! It was tricky picking just ten… but I am happy with my choices.

Cate. Cate. Cate. Anything she does is gold. Great list.
