    1.Ewan Mcgregor
    I think he is a great actor and an all around great person. It was his portrayal of 'Obi-Wan' in the 'Star Wars' saga that really made 'Star Wars' enjoyable for me.
    2 Viggo Mortensen
    As I said in the previous lesson, he is a phenomenal method actor. He has great perseverance and determination which I try to emulate.
    3 Leonardo DiCaprio
    He is a genius when it comes to the acting industry and I believe that any character he is given he can inhabit with ease as he did in 'The Revenant' or even 'Inception'.
    4 Jennifer Lawrence
    I love actors who are talented and have great personalities off the screen. Jennifer Lawrence is a prime example of this. She also has incredible range going from playing a dramatic role as Katniss in 'The Hunger Games' trilogy to a comedic role in 'Silver Linings Playbook'.
    5 Paul Rudd
    Ever since I saw him in 'Wanderlust' along side Jennifer Aniston, next on the list, I have liked him as an actor. He is a great comedic actor who can also play dramatic roles when he wants.
    6 Jennifer Aniston
    I also discovered Jennifer in 'Wanderlust' and afterward had to watch more shows with her in them. As I did I grew to love her as a talented actress and I look forward to any movie with her in it.
    7 Denzel Washington
    Everyone knows and loves him. He is a genius in anything that he puts his mind to.
    8 Tom Hanks
    He is another actor who has shown great range from roles like 'Forrest Gump' in 'Forrest Gump' to 'Sully' in 'Sully'. He is a legend.
    9 Harrison Ford
    Another legend. He is an all around great actor and very funny as well. I find a lot of encouragement when I look at his carrier know thing that wherever you start you still have a chance to be one of the greats.
    10 Al Pacino
    Yet another legend. He is one of the most influential people alive today. His carrier is an inspiration to me because not only is he an excellent actor but an amazing director, screenwriter, and stage actor.

    I know that was a lot of reading but I take points from all these people and I hope to one day be on someones list just like this one.

    #1 Male Actor, I love to see Dustin Hoffman in just about anything! I haven't seen all of his films but he is hard to forget.

    Your pick for #1, honestly, I haven't seen films she's been in.
    I did notice that you have Keira Knightley and I loved her in The Duchess and the Imitation Game. She is really good!

  28. I'll try to make a list of top 10 male actors that in random order, but I'll pick actors that are: dedicated to the craft, ready to explore their role to the extremes, actors that explore their curiosity, actors that seem like different person from role to role, actors that bring their character to life, actors who live their roles...
    1. Christian Bale (who risked his life losing his weight for The Machinist)
    2. Benedict Cumberbatch (who played two very different geniuses in The Imitation Game and in The Sherlock and both are very well played)
    3. Heath Ledger (who is almost unrecognizable from role to role)
    4. Kevin Spacey (who I saw in Bridge of Spies and The House of Cards and his characters are very different and very believable)
    5. Dustin Hoffman (who really hides himself in his character physically, mentally and emotionally, he's just different person from role to role)
    6. Daniel Day-Lewis (who isolated himself from all modern technology and used tools from certain century while preparing for his role, I can't remember exactly the name of the movie)
    7. Eddie Redmayne (who researched and explored the phases of the paralysis Stephen Hawking has for Redmayne's role in The Theory of Everything)
    8. Leonardo DiCaprio (who is very different man from role to role and every character he does feels very real)
    9. Robert De Niro (who worked as a taxis for his role in The Taxi Driver)
    10. Toby Jones (who plays this very strange characters and is brilliant doing it,whether it's voice over or on screen)

  29. Top ten actors for me:

    1. Johnny Depp (It amazes me how he can play so different characters in films.For example 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Pirates of the Caribbean!)

    2. Jennifer Lawrence (She nails every role she is given, there is so much emotion to what she acts.)

    3. Taylor Lautner (Loved him in Twilight and Abduction,also can play the roles given.)

    4. Nina Dobrev (Amazing actress in 'The Vampire Diaries' so many different emotions were played throughout the series.)

    5. Dylan O'Brien (Loved in 'Teen Wolf' and 'The Maze Runner', can also play a range of roles.)

    6. Holland Roden (Also love in 'Teen wolf' so much expression she could be happy one minute crying the next.)

    7. Ian Somerhalder (Amazing in 'Lost' and 'The Vampire Dairies)

    8. Emma Watson (Really good in 'Harry Potter' also can't wait for 'Beauty and The Beast'.)

    9. Jim Parsons (Can't even explain how much I adore him in 'Big Bang Theory'!)

    10. Crystal Reed (Love her in 'Teen Wolf.)

  30. 1-Eddie Redmayne: I am so impressed from his film The Theory of Everything, he played the character so realistic. And I am looking forward for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them's other films.
    2-Johnny Depp: I love him because he becomes one person between him and his character.
    3-Emma Watson: She is one of my favorites. My favorite character of her is Hermione Granger from Harry Potter series, she becomes the character. And her film Colonia was so impressive.
    4-Jim Parsons: I can't think The Big Bang Theory without him.
    5-Jennifer Lawrence: I think I felt everything as she showed in The Hunger Games. She is so good...
    6-Robert Downey Jr.: I am in love how he plays his characters 'madly'.
    7-Tom Hanks: I love almost every film of him but The Green Mile just ruined me. Such a great acting...
    8-Jim Carrey: I love his face expressions!
    9-Jude Law: He is the great actor of the James Watson character.
