[Newest]Tom Hanks was the best in Forrest Gump.. He was just awesome. I enjoyed the Green Mile too. I think Tom Hanks is a really nice person and he should be right up their with his acting.. He is truly awesome.

2Leonardo DiCaprio
I absolutely find Leonardo DiCaprio very talented and cute. He's now older but he still has all that talent. He's a wonderful person in so many ways. The way he surges for the environment. I've watched some his recent movies.
So good looking and an awesome actor!
I wish he still looked the same because I really wanted
Him to be in my movie that I'm gonna make when I'm older in Hollywood
Based on my novel about vampires. I wish that Leonardo Dicaprio would be
The guy in my movie
"Leo I love you since I saw titanic and now o watched some movies of you and I can tell you how many talent you have" I think that leo is the top one he is hot, cute... He is the BEST

Brad Pitt is one of the best actors in History. He is just awesome. Really enjoyed Joe Black, Seven Years in Tibet, Sleepers and my favorite is Legends of the Fall. He should be right up their at the top. You can just see what a great person he is and his beautiful wife Angelina. You can see what a great person he is if you go to New Orleans, you may see him. Helping the people from Hurricane Katrina.
Brad Pitt is one famous actor and deserves all of the credit he gets..He is terrific.
