I love him!! Not in a fancying him kind of way but he's actually an amazing actor and his "hugging the cactus" life turn around is really inspiring!! I hate all these "Drug-fuelled" tabloid stories and "blah blah" but I admire Robert so much because he had problems for years and it's very brave when not only someone admits to having a problem but actually does something about it and turns his life around!! When I see him in interviews talking about his family you can tell he's just so happy now!! And that's what life is about for me, finding happiness in the smallest of things!!

His speech about Mel Gibson actually made me cry!!
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!

Joseph Gordon Levitt has really made a push to the top of my favorite actors list. I am a huge Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, De Niro and Bryan Cranston fan.

Also, Christoph Waltz(Jew Hunter from Inglourious Basterds) has made a huge impression on me lately. I'm hoping he does more English speaking roles because i absolutely loved him in Basterds and Django Unchained.

Two of the classics right there.

I can't say I'm a huge Pacino fan but I've watched over a dozen films with him in it, and I've enjoyed his portrayals of whatever character he was cast for.

De Niro is another of my faves. I loved Casino and his role in the Good Fellas was good too. Even some of his recent roles were good. I enjoyed him in the Focker movies.

I know im ashamed. I honestly cant think of anything i didnt wholeheartedly enjoy him in. And furthermore hes an avid gamer. I am still dreaming about the time i log into Xbox Live and get randomly grouped with him. Imagine playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer with the Genie from Aladdin. I can only hope.

He isn't an actor I think about to much but he has superbly led two great series: Sharp and Game of Thrones. The latter showed me how popular he was, didn't think he was that big a name at the time.

Quite fond of James Purfoy, aka Mark Antony from one of the greatest shows I ever saw (Rome), he tends to provide his characters with a charm and a bit of fun that can steal the show. My sister and I were gutted there wasn't more of his King Lot.

I suspect Ben Whishaw will replace Sewell as my favourite actor in time though Whishaw may be hard pressed to ever match his performance in the Hollow Crown. A strong lead in Perfume, majestic in Richard II, good in Tempest.

Never seen the film for which Peter O'Toole is most famous but whenever I have seen him, he is such a charismatic presence even when not at his best. Lion in Winter, Venus and what a performance in Becket as Henry II.
