The Top Ten

Gillian Anderson
I would give her an OSCAR each year *g*
House of Mirth
Bleak House
She is perfect in every role she plays
Agree! she should sign more movies, damn Hollywood producer!
im so excited seeing her X - files this year.. well who doesn't =)


2Morgan Freeman
How can you not like his badass attitude and wise words, everything he says is memorable!


An actor par excellence..! I know nothing about the politics in Films.. But I know good actors.. And this man tops my list..!
Some of the movies he was in turned into some of the greatest movies of all time.


3Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Jonathan Rhys Meyers is one of the most underrated actors. HeĀ's able to play different characters. HeĀ's full of energy and heĀ's able to change his mood quickly on a role. HeĀ's a great character actor


HeĀ's a very talented actor, who is able to play different characters. Most underrated for his acting.

4Erika Eleniak
She could be a huge sex symbol of all time. People, where's your eyes?


5John Travolta
He's awesome! He was in Grease and Pulp Fiction! People he's good!


6Eric Bana

7Edward Norton
he is a brilliant actor I mean, Fight Club, American History X, Primal Fear, 25 th hour etc.


8Leonardo DiCaprio
One of my favourite actors!
Leo is the best

9Robert Downey Jr.

10James Caviezel
Frequency was a great film, as was The Count of Monte Cristo. He played the villain in Deja Vu as well as Jesus in the Passion of the Christ. He is a very diversified actor. He should be getting more big roles than he does.

*Interesting Fact - He played one of the F18 pilots who bombed Alcatraz in The Rock.


The Contenders

11Christian Bale
Probably the best actor in hollywood. Not many people gets into his/her roles like he does it. Spectacular in almost all movies his made. And its quite funny that his biggest role as a moviestar (batman) was probably one of his easiest roles! I recomend you people who haven't seen his other movies to see them. The fighter is a movie that deserves more credit and bale as always is fantastic!

12Sherilyn Fenn

13Al Pacino
He is the Best actor I have concluded after watching hundreds of Movies of different genres, actors and directors.


14Jack Black
look at this list and tell me whats wrong... these are all highly rated filmstars wtf morgan freeman, al pacino, robert downey jr, jerry lewis, dean martin all very highly rated filmstars
i pick jack black because he is seen for his comedy but is underrated for his acting skills


He's a real comedian! His facial expression is so wide that I'm sure he could play any kind of character. Loved his performance in "Holiday".


He is seriously one of the best actors out there, School of Rock was truly memorable.


[Newest]When I see Robert Downey Jr. In this list.
I think he is overrated not underrated.

15Ed Harris

16Alicia Silverstone
I love alicia silverstone she is one of my favorite she is so nice and pretty and I loved her in clueless also an underrated movie

17Jennifer Lopez

18Chris Tucker

19Famke Janssen

20Casper Van Dien
