21 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto.
22 Russell Crowe Russell Crowe Russell Ira Crowe is an actor, film producer and musician. Although a New Zealand citizen, he has lived most of his life in Australia and identifies himself as an Australian.

There are a lot of great actors on this list, but I have to vote for Russell Crowe. He can either make you cheer him on or wish he were dead - and for that, I CHEER HIM ON! I can't vote for Johnny Depp because he's already so high on this list... But Orlando Bloom? Come ON! Russell Crowe should be Number One with Depp, Smith, Bale, Damon, and the One and Only Vin Diesel right behind him!

One of the greatest actors of our time. LA Confidential, Insider, Gladiator, Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, Master and Commander... who else could put together such an exceptional string of films all dependent on his strong character and exceptional talent.

Gladiator, A Beautiful MInd, Cinderella Man, 3:10 to Yuma. - Bman23

23 Denzel Washington Denzel Washington Denzel Hayes Washington, Jr. is an American actor and filmmaker. He has received three Golden Globe awards, a Tony Award, and two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor for the historical war drama film Glory and Best Actor for his role as a corrupt cop in the crime thriller Training Day.

Denzel is one of the best. Unfortunately, Hollywood always has him in violent homicidal roles that do not play to his true talents. Shame really.

Remember the Titans, Training Day, American Gangster, and Inside Man. - Bman23
