Jessica Chastain. I first saw her in Zero Dark Thirty and loved the strong character she plays. I’ve been a fan ever since. She just seems “real”.

While I wouldn’t call it a soft spot, I would say that I just automatically assume that all of Tom Cruise and Will Smith’s movies will be good (although that Will Smith/netflix movie called Bright was a hot ass mess).

marylen :  I’m the total opposite, I basically nix anything with Tom Cruise! Ugh– his abusive tendencies towards women and the Scientology-cult really turns me off to him and so I want no part in putting any money in his pocket. Plus, he always plays the same charcter. Oh– a kind of badass that smiles and winks a lot? Rinse , repeat… over a 25 year career /end rant LOL

I don’t know that I really root for anyone in particular (except LEO– way to get that gold, finally!), although I do enjoy movies and entertainment. I think Anthony Hopkins would be such a fun dinner date! He seems so interesting and like a great storyteller.

Colin Firth forever!

ETA: Also Judy Dench! From Chocolat to Pride & Prejudice, to Henry V to James Bond and soooo many more, she is amazing.

I’m the opposite too, I actively avoid any Tom Cruise movies!


I always like Kate Winslet, for some strange reason. And Zac Efron, but that’s just because he is gorgeous lol, not because of his acting abilities.

I loved the younger Bruce Willis. I mean he is still great.

I love Violia Davis.

I wouldn’t say I like Tom Cruise but for some inexplicable reason when he pops up in a movie trailer my brain is like “Oh, we should see that.” I think he did some weird Scientology juju on me.

On a personal level: Johnny Depp, Nicolas Cage, Steve Buscemi, Adam Sandler, Kathy Bates, Keanu Reeves. 

There are certain people my husband and I will watch anything they do just because they’re in it, like Keanu and Adam Sandler. All though, husband did rage quit Knock Knock. He’s still very upset by it which is hilarious.

It’s not that I just LOVE Leo DiCaprio or find him extremely attractive or anything but I just think he is a very good actor. While I really didn’t care for the Titanic, I loved the Great Gatsby & The Revenant and thought he did awesome in both. He embodies his characters extremely well.

I do like Keira Knightley. I tend to like a lot of what she plays in, and Pride & Prejudice is one of my favorite movies.

I like J Law too. She seems so down to earth & funny. The only movies I’ve seen her in were the Hunger Games, which I loved.

I strongly dislike Tom Cruise & his movies. They generally don’t appeal to me. The best thing I’ve seen him in was Valkyrie, which he did very well in.

I think Russell Crowe is an awesome actor too, Gladiator is another favorite of mine and he did so good in it.

If we’re talking about actors who I like based on *looks* I’d have to say Henry Cavill. I’ve seen Superman a few times and it’s not for the plot! lol
