    I have a list of my own with a lot of unnamed actors/actresses, but I'm going to say DiCaprio. He's an amazing actor and I was highly impressed by the movies he starred in. I'm currently on a movie challenge to watch everything he's in XDD

    Oh yeah - I heard about that one but I haven't seen it yet XDD I guess I should watch it sometime soon!!


    Oh, and my fav actress would be Vivien Leigh. I recently saw Gone with the Wind on cable TV and not only did I like her acting, but I also admired her natural pretty looks.

    Ahaha, I only have one...Ewan McGregor.

    All of his performances (in my opinion) are spectacular.

    I'd say Jonny Depp and Tom Felton. Those two are awesome. And Tom Felton plays Draco Malfoy.
    Yato and FinalArcadia like this.

    all my life I've tried to hide what history has given me

    Trainspotting is bananas. Probably my second favourite film, only narrowly beaten by Blade Runner.

    I like her too. A lot of the old-time actresses really were much more beautiful than their modern counterparts. Gloria Stuart, who I mentioned, was incredibly beautiful IMO. And she looked great even into her later years. (She lived to be 100.)

    I think it's because back then there really wasn't any need for plastic surgery - actors and actresses just accepted their looks. Personally, I believe that accepting your appearance is better than trying to change it. That's why I give Owen Wilson credit for accepting his nose even though it isn't the most attractive nose.

    You know who else is a pretty great actor? John C. Reilly. He doesn't always get great roles (here's looking at you, Step Brothers) but the guy can definitely act, as demonstrated in Magnolia and Boogie Nights. I actually really like his an actor, he kinda absorbs his characters and his own personality and I think that makes him pretty good at acting. He's an honest actor.

    I really like Diane Keaton.

    And a lot of British actresses, like Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, etc.

    As for dudes, probably Kenneth Branagh and Colin Firth are my favorites.

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    Helena Bonham Carter. She has a natural quirky charm.
    Also Alan Rickman and Meryl Streep. Both have made some otherwise forgettable movies enjoyable.

    These are obvious choices probably mentioned already, but still.
