I love Dave Franco, Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Dean Winters, Cillian Murphy and Keanu Reeves. I’ll watch pretty much anything they’re in. They all just seem like nice people who I’d want to hang out with.

I don’t know if there’s any I particularly root for, but there’s a lot that I won’t go out of my way to see.

* Reese Witherspoon – not sure why, but I can’t stand her.  She was doing commercials for some retailer around Christmas and I would change the channel every time she came on.  I think the disdain started when she got arrested in Atlanta (or somewhere down South) and she pulled the “do you know who I am?” card.  Completely turned me off.

* Tom Cruise – ’nuff said.  His views on Scientology really drove me crazy.

* Nicole Kidman – again, not sure why I don’t like her.  She doesn’t come across as genuine.

* Jen Lawrence – I used to like her but she and Taylor Swift, as anothe Bee mentioned, just try too hard.

I used to like Jeremy Renner but my husband met him and said he was a total ass.  Maybe he was just having a bad day, but he’s also not really tall so my husband said maybe he has short man syndrome.

I do like John Krasinski though.  I also had a big crush on him when The Office was on.  I like Steve Carrell but I wouldn’t say I had a crush on him.  I tend to like more down to earth actors and actresses.

Liv Tyler. Her voice makes me melt. I’d go gay for Liv.

MissStoGee :  Yes, I have. I didn’t quite like it (nothing like the book at all, which I love!) but I wouldn’t call it horrendous. Daniel’s acting was the only saving grace there, it allowed me to watch the entire thing instead of instantly turning it off. XD

littlemissdimsum :  I also can’t stand Jennifer Lawrence, I don’t find her to be a particularly good actor. I have no idea how she’s been nominated for an Oscar so many times. She looks/sounds/acts the same in every role.

misskate18 :  Cillian Murphy is another good one! Peaky Blinders is one of my favorite shows of all time!

rosydelight :  I couldn’t agree more! I rarely enjoy anything with Jennifer Lawerence in it. Hunger Games was okay but her acting in it isn’t good and nothing else I’ve seen her in was good either. And she seems so fake, like she’s trying so hard to be the cool girl.

jannigirl :  Have you seen About Time with Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams? It’s the first movie I ever saw him in and it totally made me fall in love with him! He is definitely one to watch.

For male actors, the usual suspects – Leonardo D (he always seem to get very good and carefully selected roles), Tom Cruise sometimes, Johnny Depp (very versatile) Hugh Jackman (nicest and most humble guy ever)

Tom Hanks!!!!! (Except one should never travel with him tongue-out and definitely not have him at the command of whatever transport vehicle)

Josh Groban (Ok, he isn’t known for his acting I know, but the bits of stuff he has acted in, is not bad)
