Don’t think we’ve ever asked this before. Simple question, complicated answer maybe. Who are your top 5 actors or actresses? And why?
The Rock - I don’t think anyone has more charisma than him. I wish he’d had better movies, but he was must watch TV when he was in the WWE. He seems like a really great guy. Favorite role: Himself.
Sylvester Stallone - I admire that he was successful when everything was against him. What he did with Rocky was extraordinary, I don’t know if it’s ever been repeated. I kind of feel bad because I think he is a good actor who just never got good parts outside of Rocky (and a couple of other movies) but he knows how to make fun of himself. He’s had a hard life but keeps going and seems to be a positive influence. Favorite role: Rocky.
Brad Pitt - I like that he’s made different movie choices instead of going the safe lazy route. He could have just Tom Cruised it up and did one blockbuster a year, but he went a different path from a young age. Dude was Benjamin Button, that’s as odd as it gets. Favorite role: Snatch.
Ewan McGregor - I don’t know why I like him so much, I can’t think of any recent movie where he’s made an impression. But he feels more like a regular guy than pretty much any movie star I can think of. I think he can act like crazy but he’s picked horrible scripts. Favorite role: Hard to pick, for now it’s A Life Less Ordinary.
Sandra Bullock - I think she’s a better actress than most people give her credit for. In particular though 'd glad she found a place in comedies where she’s maybe one of the best on the planet and you’d wouldn’t have though that given she’s not from stand up comedy. Favorite Role: The Proposal.
