Meme time Actor/Actresses

Comment with "I want" and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your LJ with your favourite films of theirs.

These were given me by kattahj

Cary Grant
Is one of my favourite actors, so this is not an easy choice. But all things considered, I would say Charade with Audrey Hepburn. A caper romance, with two of the most attractive leads of the time - what more could you want?
Dustin Hoffman
Is NOT one of my favourite actors, but I love Tootsie.
James Earl Jones
um... I think I would have to say Star Wars if only because I'm not sure I've seen (or heard) anything else that he's been in!
Kevin Bacon
Oh definitely Footloose (hey, can you hear that song... "Footloose... Footloose, put on your dancing shoes..."
The Marx Brothers
Sorry - I have to confess I have never seen a single Marx Brothers movie, so will have to pass on this one.
Will Smith
Men in Black
Anthony Hopkins
Oh, now this one's difficult. I think maybe Howard's End - not so much for him, but as a movie overall. The Silence of the Lambs was pretty good, too, though not exactly fun to watch. And Zorro.
Rupert Everett
My Best Friend's Wedding, though I've liked him in quite a lot of things.
Max von Sydow
You know what? The Exorcist!! Not the answer you might expect, but memorable!
Antonio Banderas
Zorro, although I'm tempted to say Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.

Katherine Hepburn
Is a wonderful actress, but not someone I love. I adore The African Queen, though.
Julia Roberts
Oh, Pretty Woman. Definitely.
Sigourney Weaver
Working Girl is one of my all-time favourite movies, so it's easy to name it here, even though she kicked more ass in Aliens.
Natalie Portman
Garden State
Shirley MacLaine
Terms of Endearment. Oh, that scene when her daughter dies and they look into each other's eyes in the hospital... *sniff*
Sally Field
NOT my favourite actress... um... Sybil, which I think might have been a TV movie, but was really quite terrific.
Whoopi Goldberg
I liked her in Star Trek, but that was TV. Ghost?? I guess.
Mary Stuart Masterson
Benny and Joon, which I had to look up on the Internet Movie Data Base but which was actually a lovely, quirky movie and I'd forgotten that she was in it (but not Johnny Depp, of course)
Lena Olin
Oh, this has to be The Unbearable Lightness of Being (unless I can count Alias!!)
Scarlett Johansson
um... I'm not sure I've seen anything she's been in... Oh - no! Of course, Lost in Translation

Yay new movies to watch! I wanted to take fairly known actors/actresses who had been in a substantial number of things yet weren't all the Hot Latest Thing, so it became quite the motley crew. It seems to have worked - though Marx Brothers, Chaplin, and Tati all caused problems. Apparently I'm the only one to enjoy classic slapstick!

CARY GRANT! I LOVE CARY GRANT SO MUCH! And Charade is brilliant, although I thought Cary Grant seemed just a smidge too old for Audrey Hepburn. But they are, as you say, two of the most attractive leads of all time, so it's still wonderful.

Have you ever seen How to Steal a Million, Hepburn's other caper film? I love it (I love Audrey Hepburn as excessively as Cary Grant), but not many people have seen it.

YES! I love it, and Peter O'Toole is so handsome and charming in it. And I adore Audrey Hepburn, too. Have you seen Robin and Marian? I wept buckets, but it's lovely even so.

I love Peter O'Toole in that movie. The scene where he and Audrey Hepburn are sneaking around the museum, making out in the closet when the guard goes past...priceless.

I haven't seen Robin and Marian, but I've added it to my Netflix queue! I've loved almost every Audrey Hepburn movie I've seen, even the lesser-known ones: Wait Until Dark especially; she had a broader range than I think most people remember. Do you know if her version of War and Peace is worth watching?

I've never seen her War and Peace. She is so lovely in Robin and Marian. So is Sean Connery. But make sure you have lots of kleenex.
