Who is your favorite Actor/Actress?

Who is you favorite Actor/Actress and why?

My all time favorite is Morgan Freeman!!
After watching "Lean on me" where he acts as the real life Joe Clark,princepal of the worst high school in N. Jersey, Eastside High. I was hooked on him. I haven't seen him in a bad movie once, or at least a movie that he didn't depict the character the way they were meant to be.

Oh.. let's see... for Acting, I'd say Richard Gere.
For BODY.. I'd say Tom Cruise
For Looks .. Brad Pitt

If I could only pick one it'd be Richard though. He has it all.

For acting I really like a bunch of "character actors" such as Andy Garcia, Alfred Molina and so on but their "king" in my opinion is Gary Oldman... he's been everything from Dracula to Dr Smith to Lee Harvey Oswald to a Jamaican drug lord and convinced us every time. Heck, he's been Bethoven AND Sid Viscious.

As for "easy on the eyes" I do love burnettes, my favorite being Jeniffer Connely.
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

oh, i like angelina jolie, too, heat.

there's an air of mystery about her. she's also an awesome and very talented actress.

I don't care what an actor/actress looks like. If they make me care about their character, I like 'em.

Sally Fields.....I haven't seen a movie yet that I didn't enjoy her performance.

Julia Roberts....I've only seen one movie that I couldn't watch and it was a type of musical and she sang and all I could think is "What were you thinking"!

Meg Ryan

Nicole Kidman.....there have been a few of her movies I didn't enjoy though

Renee Zellwager (I probably mucked up that spelling)

Sandra Bullock

Jodie Foster


Robin Williams

Tom Hanks

Morgan Freeman

Richard Grer

Andy Garcia

But it all really boils down to the movie and the plot. I don't care if they are one of my favorites it the movies doesn't sit well with me then I'm more then apt to say they didn't do the movie justice.

I do think that the girl that played the young girl in "Sam" with Sean Penn is going to be one of the next big actresses though.
