Top Ten Greatest Actors

Presenting the top ten best male actors in the history of cinema. The greatest actors including silver screen heroes, Oscar winners, Bollywood superstars, and big time names from the small screen.

The Top Ten

Tom Hanks Thomas Jeffrey "Tom" Hanks is an American actor and filmmaker. He is known for his roles in Splash, Big, Turner & Hooch, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, You've Got Mail, The Green Mile, the Toy Story Franchise, Cast Away, The Da Vinci Code, Captain Phillips, and Saving Mr. more.

Nominated for 5 academy awards for playing a little kid in a man's body, a troubled WWII captain, a modern Robinson Caruso and his two Oscar winning roles as a gay man and a mentally challenged overachiever. Hanks is extremely versatile and is brilliant in both comedic and dramatic roles.

Tom Hanks is one of my all time favorite actors he plays such a great role and delivers everything you would want and more! He is a legend in my book.

Tom Hanks has always been, in my opinion, one of the all time greatest actors of his time. He's an incredible example of talent, inspiration, and heart. Tom, and Robin Williams - will forever be, and always have been - two people in the Hollywood light, that I have undoubtedly always carried a massive amount of genuine respect for. They're so much more than extraordinary actors - they're extraordinary men - and that is what shines through and makes them the greatest actors of their generation(s) - not just their amazing ability and overwhelming talent - but WHO THEY ARE as people, is what makes them the best. They will go down in history as being inspirations to folks of all ages, for their uncanny ability to place morals, kindness, selflessness, empathy, true character, humor, and compassion, above money, fame, and material possessions. These men are the the idols young people should be having, and looking up to - not the people who put priority in making choices that reflect only on ...more

I'm just a kid and you can never not give Tom Hanks an academy award and he is Woody. Who doesn't love Woody.

Jack Nicholson John Joseph Nicholson (born April 22, 1937) is an American actor and filmmaker, who has performed for over 60 years. Nicholson is known for playing a wide range of starring or supporting roles, including satirical comedy, romance and dark portrayals of antiheroes and psychopathic characters. In many more.

He should be first, Johnny depp isn't even close to jacks standards

Jack Nicholson has basically done it all. Who can forget his performances in 'chinatown' and 'one flew over the cuckoo's nest'.

Hey did we forget Jack, "heres Johnny" let not forget the greatest actor ever!

The movie the shining was so scary but he was so funny when he was frozen in the snow

Robert DeNiro Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. is an American actor, producer, and director. De Niro was cast as the young Vito Corleone in the 1974 film The Godfather Part II, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Perfect deliverer of lines and emotions. He makes mediocre movies watchable.

Bob is normally ranked number one but I think he could learn something from these 6 men. Though still a legend and an unbelieveable great actor he has shown us what movies are all about

The greatest actor of all time, how come there are Indian actors on this list, laugh out loud

#1 Robert DeNiro is the greatest actor of our time; not to mention the greatest actor of ALL time. He has won 2 Academy Awards and still makes movies to this day. The movie "Awakenings" with Robin Williams show the range and versatility DeNiro has and shows that he can act any role asked. In the Deer Hunter you felt like you were right there in the jungles of Vietnam with him. The delivery of his lines and the way he can make you believe anything is astonishing and breath-taking to watch. It is a joy to watch. He is the GOLD-standard in acting. In Ronin, the scene where he takes out the bullet from his gut after being shot and when he is done just looks at his co-actors and says, " OK, I am gonna go ahead and pass out now" was a masterpiece. Just watch his movies and compare him to anyone and you can see how he can easily have replaced any actor on this list. The same can NOT be said if you said that any other actor could have replaced Robert DeNiro in the acting roles he played in. ...more

Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

I don't think he is sexy but the man can act! He is very diverse and agile. He can be so funny, elusive, mysterious, boyish, wise, psycho, happy, sad, grievous, etc. And I believe every moment of his characters.

Johnny Depp is the best actor and I love his movies. He sing very good too, I've watched the movie "Sweeney Todd" and I really liked the way he sing in it. It's not only that, he is the most sexiest man in the world, I LOVE HIM!

Wow, how logical you are! I think this list belongs to the actors, not singers. Watch only a movie from Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hanks or Jack Nicholson. It will help you judge better.

He's the real deal. And a beautiful, good human being. His creativity soars, his talent is timeless.

There is no doubt that Johnny Depp IS the best actor in the world. Hands down. I would love to see anyone else in this list match his versatility. The man started off with Edward Scissorhands and acted solely with his eyes. He followed it up with Ed Wood, Benny and Joon, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Donnie Brasco, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, Chocolat, Blow and From Hell. And if you think that wasn't enough "range" the last decade has seen him rule the box office as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates series. His performance in Finding Neverland, Secret Window, Sweeney Todd, Alice In Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Public Enemies and a lesser known movie - but no less exceptional in term of Depp's performance - The Libertine are just superb. He is the best character actor in the world, naturally alluring with an intelligent mind and those deep liquid eyes. He is the sexiest man alive and to me the greatest actors list starts, continues and ends with ...more

Al Pacino Alfredo James "Al" Pacino is an American actor and filmmaker. Pacino has had a career spanning more than five decades, during which time he has received numerous accolades and honors.

Johnny Depp outranking Pacino, no way! Watch Godfather II or Scent of a Woman...

Al Pacino is the greatest actor ever he can do any role... Nobody can do gangster and detective roles like he does...

Democracy don't seem to be fair in online polls. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is in #no7 in greatest songs ever, Monica Belluci #63 at sexiest females and now the unique Al isn't found at least in the second place of greatest actors! So completely unfair! He is a magic actor, he can change himself in whatever he is told to do so in such a convincing way.. #No1 definitely

In terms of ACTING SKILL, Pacino #1, Johnny Depp #2, De Niro #3, Brad Pitt #4 all of these are almost equal in my opinion, and for people who's gonna laugh of my brad pitt choice, Brad Pitt is one of the best actor I've seen, Some of his movie that he performed acting like crazy: Twelve Monkey (acting like some kind of psychotic), Troy as Achille, Kalifornia as a serial killer, Snatch who is playing a pikey irish that we can hear him talk just barely since he speak so bad ( very funny ), and his top movie in terms of ''ACTING SKILL'' in my opinion is The Assasination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford. In this movie Brad Pitt is playing jesse james role so perfectly, when he know that someone is trying to betray him, you can read in his face that he know, he don't even have to say anything, he just do the acting perfectly. at the table when he start to humiliate Robert Ford at dinner when he ask him to tell him the things he has in common, and when he laugh loud and everything, ...more

Leonardo Di Caprio Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is an American actor and film producer. DiCaprio began his career by appearing in television commercials in the late 1980s.

Say what you want about his heart throb status and his presence in the teen magazines, he is still a spectacular actor. It's not his fault that he became so wildly popular in the under 16 female demographic.

He was bad in his early day such as Critters 3 and the cheesy sit com which I forgot the name of, but now he is definitely a superstar. He has had great performances in movies like: Titanic, Inception, The Departed, Shutter Island, Blood Diamond, The Aviator, Catch Me If You Can and Romeo & Juliet. His career is full of diversity and brilliance and is way overdue for an Oscar.

Hell yeah! Come on Leo! I loved him in Titanic, Romeo and Juliet and Inception! Even though in my opinion Romeo and Juliet was a it boring his sexy voice and face so made up for it! Incredible actor and incredible face! Love you Leo!

Stop looking at his pre 2000 movies. Once he took up Gangs of New York, he never stopped giving phenomenal performance year after year in some of the best movies of the past twenty years. Check out his performances in Gangs of New York, Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island, Inception, Django Unchained, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Revenant, and most recently, Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. The man knows how to completely emulate characters and bring them to their maximum potential. He is the best actor in film.

Marlon Brando Marlon Brando, Jr. was an American actor, film director, and activist. He is credited with bringing a gripping realism to film acting, and is often cited as one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time.

How the hell are actors of the calibre of Marlon Brando 'n Al Pacino down here? Someone, seriously, has got to do something, 'n probly "shift" some people here 'n there

I find it really disappointing that Marlon Brando has been placed behind less talented actors. Yes Johnny Depp is very good but no matter what he does he can never compare with the magnificence of Brando

Man, you can't just make an all time greatest list by inviting votes of today's public. This population also includes retards and bunch of jokers who go all ga ga over actors like Johnny Depp and Leonardo. I mean they are good but not anywhere near actors like Brando, Pacino, DeNiro and Hopkins. And where is Morgan Freeman? Good lord! I guess this list should be renamed to 'favorite actors of present generation' instead of 'top ten greatest actors'. I am an Indian still I can't understand why so many Hindi and Tamil actors are here in this list. I bet most of the people who voted here don't know heck about acting.
I am sorry to say but this is just not fair.

I mean, come on, this guy is amazing. If you go back and look at films that came out around the same time as "On the Waterfront" you can see how amazing this guy was. Everyone else is just saying their lines but this guy was living them. He's in "Guys and Dolls" with Frank Sinatra and he makes Frank look like an Amateur, and Brando really shouldn't have any business being in a musical and yet he kills it. This is the best actor of all time. No question.

Morgan Freeman Morgan Freeman (born June 1, 1937) is an American actor and narrator. Freeman won an Academy Award in 2005 for Best Supporting Actor with Million Dollar Baby (2004), and he has received Oscar nominations for his performances in Street Smart (1987), Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption and Invictus. more.

Morgan Freeman... His voice alone could win an Oscar. What is there to say about Freeman, besides always turning in a great performance. Can be somber, can be intense, can be funny... No limits. His best performances. #1- Shawshank Redemption, Red #2 Hoke, Driving Mrs. Daisy
-difficult to leave out his role as Ned in Unforgiven, or his performance in Million Dollar Baby. So many good roles.

He's great, his calm and gripping acting styles are the best in Hollywood. When you watch a morgan freeman film there's no way you could turn it off.

The fact that Johnny Depp is before Morgan Freeman is a sin. Shawshank Redemption vs. Pirates of the Caribbean. There is no competition. MOVE HIM UP.

The Dark Knight trilogy, Deep Impact, need I say more, Morgan Freeman deserves all the credit he gets.

Daniel Day Lewis Sir Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis is an English actor. He holds both British and Irish citizenship. He has won 3 Academy Awards for Best Actor for My Left Foot, There Will be Blood, and Lincoln.

To be honest this list is absolutely terrible Jason stratman is in front of daniel day Lewis? A man who has done nothing and played the same hard man english role vs the 2 time Oscar winner. (soon to be three for his part in lincoln). I mean the guys a legend he has put some unbelievable performances in movies such as: in the name of the father, gangs of new York, there will be blood, lincoln and my left foot. He is one of the best actors I have ever seen the only performance which is up with his in my mind is brando in the godfather and maybe Heath ledger as the joker. He is a true actor, he doesn't care about money but for the role and in my opinion he is the hardest worker with months of preparation going into his work.. He is the greatest of his generation for sure. We will wait and see if he proves himself best ever. I think he is...

Pound for Pound, the Best. The Maestro. I think that anyone who leaves this guy out of the top ten needs some serious movie therapy. The man has never turned in a lackluster performance. Three Oscar wins, very impressive method actor. It is very difficult to choose his best role, but I am going to go out on a limb here. #1- Daniel Plainview, There Will Be Blood #2- Christy Brown, My Left Foot. Bottom line, he is good in everything.

I don't thing the list this list is true. Daniel at 29 who will believe. If this list according to merit deniel should be in top ten. I thing need to watch his movie lincoln. But I respect other's choice.

Actually able to transform him as a character, there is a reason he has 3 Oscars. Top 3 all time, easily.

Samuel L. Jackson Samuel Leroy Jackson is an American actor and film producer. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Jungle Fever, Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, Jurassic Park and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction, Jackie more.

Why is Samuel Jackson at 91, he should be in the top 20 at least! I mean come on! He is a great actor, he did very good in pulp fiction and coach cater. He is so underrated on this website, he is very talented and clever. The power he puts into his acting is unreal.

Pulp Fiction, THE MCU as Nick Fury, Shafted Samuel L Jackson is one of the greatest actors of all time.

He is very good at action movies
My favorites
Jango unleashed
The hateful eight

Any one seen Coach Carter... this man is a great actor. top 30 at least

The Contenders

Robin Williams Robin McLaurin Williams was an American actor and comedian. Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco's comedy renaissance. He died in 2014.

Lets not forget this actor. Who else can do commedy & drama better.

Robin Williams is the best actor in the world. Who can forget his brilliant acting in "Dead Poets Society'. He can do any kind of a role with total conviction.

Comedians are amazing because they can do what dramatic actors can't... do both. Robin Williams, "Captain my Camptain," created roles that can not be duplicated from Good Will Hunting to Aladdin.

He made the whole world laugh but he couldn't make himself happy. Let us never forget this great man.

Jim Carrey James Eugene "Jim" Carrey is a Canadian American actor, comedian, impressionist, screenwriter, and producer. He is well known for comedic roles in films such as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask , Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, The Cable Guy, Liar Liar, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, more.

Ok he has won more MTV awards than anyone else in human history... No one has put on one of his films and not laughed! No one

He's so funny. Even when he is trying to be serious.

He is god in my mind. He is the best comedy actor, I have ever seen. Me, myself and Irene is Carrey's the best film and The Mask is good too. That man makes me laugh.

The funniest actor ever by far. No one is as hilarious as Jim Carrey, his Riddler was the best I've ever seen and his Count Olaf was the best as well.

Robert Downey Jr. Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.

I admit that this man has changed my life. Not only does he do every single role he's ever played absolutely perfectly, he's also one of the hottest people I've ever had the luck to set my eyes on.
It's his fault that I'm in love with a fictional character (Tony Stark) and not someone real.

Go watch Raging Bull or There Will Be Blood and THEN vote on this list.

What can I say this man has everything, looks and unmeasurable talent. 108 is to high up the list for this one. Divide the number by 9 or even q08 then it would be more accurate. Come on everyone knows and loves Tony Stark and Sherlock Holmes, so why not the man who puts 110% effort and life into the characters.

This man can play every single character ever and make it believable. He has made characters come to life including charlie Chaplin, tony stark, and Sherlock Holmes! on top of that he made them all so believable he is amazing <3 this man is so incredible he's always funny and always delivers... not to mention he's a flipping hot silver fox

Genius actor. Man behind the success of MCU. Return as a most praised actor from his downfalls is incomparable.

Will Smith Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. is an American actor, comedian, producer, rapper, and songwriter. He is best known for his acting career overall. He has been in many popular movies, These include, but are not limited to, the Men in Black franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, and After Earth. He is more.

he is awesome
"i am legend" is a movie that can not be made again
his acting has been just awesome in the movie
he is incredible

For those who don't know, the monsters essentially turn out to be the next inhabitants of Earth, and humans are like dinosaurs: anachronisms. Truly genus, but I assume the studio said "yeah, you ain't taking people to what they expect to be a cookie cutter monster action movie, and givin' 'em somethin' really deep." Perhaps they were (hypothetically) right. Perhaps they (hypothetically) weren't.

Hench, black, an amazing rapper as well, and he owned iRobot! This guys the best

He's the beat actor the guy has been chosed so easily he can beat any actor maybe johny deep and tom hanks this guy is a classic actor with his movie I am a legend he really show us that he is a legend...

How "being chosen so easily" is a sign of good acting abilities? Do you know that Marlon Brando was not the first choice of the producers to play Don Corleone in The Godfather? And he won an oscar for this.

I think this should be in the top 5 he has acted in a lot of great movies that's being enjoyed by the people of nowadays.

Heath Ledger Heath Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

Watch Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight. That's why he is number 1

Heath was in the best movie of all time Brokeback Mountain and what he did with The Joker no one else is able to act so well

Heath Ledger is the greatest actor of all time, if you don't understand that you don't understand anything about movies or acting

LMFAO! Says the millennial without any proper knowledge about acting or movies

The Dark Knight. Heath Ledger played the best JOKER ever! Ever!

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.

No possible way of leaving Denzel out of my list. Too many good performances... Exceptional talent. Picking his best movie is difficult, #1- Pvt. Trip, Glory #2- Alonzo Harris, Training Day *
*-Movie was very overrated, Washington's performance was not. He deserved the Oscar, even with how brilliant Crowe was in A Beautiful Mind

Probably the best actor ever overall. Denzel Washington was great in the Equalizer, Man on Fire and so on. He can act, special skills aside like singing and dancing he can act better than anyone.

There is no doubt, Denzel is top 5 actor if not top 3. Every role is believable. Glory had to be one of my favorite movies because of him. He and Hanks in Philadelphia... tour de force.

I believe that not only is Denzel Washington a good African American Actor, but rather he is a talented performer regardless. I think that most directors could pretty much assign him the responsibilities of any role that was not dependent on color to portray, whether that be from a movie script of stage play since he got his acting start on the dramatic theater stage performing in front of live audiences... And he would do as well a job as any other performer in successfully bringing the character to life enjoyably. He is very entertaining to watch due to his ability to become very animated and encompass each character he portrays.

Harrison Ford Harrison Ford is an American actor and film producer. He gained worldwide fame for his starring roles as Han Solo in the original Star Wars epic space opera trilogy and the title character of the Indiana Jones film series.

Harrison Ford is a way better actor by far than anybody called Joseph Vijay. Whoever this guy is does he have 40 years acting expirience? Has he starred in some of the greatest movie series' of all time like Indiana Jones, Star Wars, or the Jack Ryan series? I don't think so.

Lemme tell you something. He is a 52 year old but acts great like Harrison Ford. But the only thing is Tamil cinema industry is not recognised and underrated.

Oh my gosh! how can this guy not be number one he has the best face expression ever he is so cool I think he is the best actor in history I think that Harrison ford should be tied at number one with Sean Connery

Should be in top 5 as he is one of the greatest of all time. Indiana Jones and Star Wars to name a couple.

ok, Harrison Ford is an actor yea, but he does not deserve to be here. Looks can't define someone. This is not to say I don't like him, but he deserves to be in the 60s

Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

Watch the fighter, American Psycho and The Machinist. Now I dare you to say he isn't a good actor. Should definitely be in top 15 at minimum. I like Johnny Depp but the guy is getting really overrated.

I think you meant batman, because those other movies never happened

Not the absolute best but should be in Top 10. not sure why depp made it ahead of legends like Gary Oldman, Daniel Day Lewis, Marlon Brando, Russel Crowe and Robert De Niro. These guys could easily make the top 5. Depp is overrated. In terms of talent, I consider him to be on the same level as Christian Bale and Leornardo Dicaprio and seeing him very far ahead is just stupid enough I wanna shoot myself. Also there's a lot of Indian actors. I never seen any of their movies so can't say much about them either. But I'm sure Christian Bale kicks pretty much a whole junk of their cartoonish ass.

The master of accents and physical transformation. One of the few who can do art films all the way to comic book movies convincingly.

He is definitely best actor of his generation and one of the best of all time. great acting skill and full dedication is obvious in each of his roles including: American hustle, the fighter, the prestige, the machinist, rescue dawn, and the Dark Knight Trilogy

Gary Oldman Gary Leonard Oldman is an English actor, filmmaker, musician, and author. Renowned for his "big" acting style, Oldman is one of the most celebrated thespians of his generation, with a diverse career encompassing theatre, film, and television. He has received a Golden Globe award and an Academy Award: more.

I made this comment on another website: there are many exceptional actors like Daniel Day-Lewis, Marlon Brando, Alec Guinness, John Hurt, Laurence Olivier, etc. But Oldman tops them all, in my opinion. He can lose himself entirely in every kind of character you could imagine, in every genre possible. All of his performances are crafted with precision, without forgetting any detail. He is very creative in achieving his portrayals and does not limit himself to one method (Adler or Stanislavski, for example.) Instead, he uses everything that could make the character "appear" and is looking everywhere for inspiration. It also helps that he is a fine observant and an incredible mimic: look at how he acts ans sounds like Churchill or Lee Oswald, and how he can master so many accents.

As a result, he gaves us mesmerizing performances from film to film but is entirely different each time. Compare his pimp Drexl in "True Romance" and George Smiley, for example. These are two great roles ...more

Gary Oldman is so underrated. He is more versatile than half the actors mentioned above, and has so much talent that on the screen he can keep you captivated film after film. He needs to get an Oscar, he is amazing and I love him!

The single greatest go to character actor. Best supporting actor in every movie he is in...

Long admired Gary's versatility and the ability to portray a wide range of characters

Brad Pitt William Bradley "Brad" Pitt (born December 18, 1963) is an American actor and producer. He has received a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and three Academy Award nominations in acting categories and received three further Academy Award nominations, winning one, as producer under his more.

Seven, fight club(he is brilliant in this), inglorious basterds, burn after reading, troy, the ocean's trilogy, the curious case of benjamin button and interview with a vampire, everyone thinks that he is just eye candy but he is great in some films, tom hanks is my favorite but I wanted to vote for brad to show that he is actually great

Not only is he hot, but a great actor as well. Have you not seen his movies, Troy, Ocean's 11, 12, Meet Joe Black, Legends of the Fall. Come on great actor, & yeah, Al Pacino & Robert De Niro are excellent, but Brad should of been up there too.

Could not agree more. As he ages he is even better as an actor he picks his roles to what fits and interested him. One role forgotten Mr. ^^ Mrs. Smith it was a great movie, but I am sure all those Friends fans would not agree but it really was a fun movie if you take everything else out of it. I bet it made a lot in the theaters but most would not admit to seeing it. Moneyball is his best yet and he pumped that movie after reading the book it took him a few years to be produced and now I am sure he will be in the running for an Oscar. They do not pay him what they Do if he was not a big ticket at the box office. I saw Meet Joe Black and that movie got horrible revues but he was great so was the movie.

best films: once upon a time in hollywood, fury, world war Z, moneybag, inglorious basterds, curious case of benjamin button, oceans 11, 12, and 13, mr and mrs smith, troy (his best) fight club, meet joe black, sleepers, se7en, 12 monkeys, a river runs through it

Chris Pratt Christopher Michael "Chris" Pratt is an American actor. He came to prominence from his television roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood and Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.

He is funny
My favorites
Gardions of the galaxy
Jurassic world

No matter how much you dislike Star-lord for dusting 50% of people, Chris Pratt is still a great actor!

He just became my favorite Actor after he was in Guardians of the galaxy, I actually didn't know about him before that, he's an awesome actor but why so low?!

He did an amazing performance in all his movies like the Lego movie, Jurassic world and guardians of the galaxy. His performance just WOW

Anthony Hopkins Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins CBE is a Welsh actor, director, and producer. He was born on December 31, 1937 in Margam, Wales. He is known for winning the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1992, and was nominated three additional times. Hopkins has also won three BAFTAs, two Emmys, and the Cecil B. DeMille more.

I was torn between Nicholson and Hopkins, but I just had to go with him simply because of Hannibal Lecter. Definitely one of the greatest performances in film history, and one of the best-deserved Best Actor awards ever.

Hannibal Lecter is one of the best movie villain ever, so do this man.

The DeNiro's Pacino to Jack Nicholson. You can't choose between the power houses. Feels like if we have to define the bottom of the pit of acting, it is him. He was surely lurking there, a lost world of gems till we saw Dr. Lector and we can't stop searching anymore.

No contest. Anthony Hopkins is without any doubt the greatest actor OF ALL TIME! Forget Silence of the Lambs, good film of course. His performance in Titus is untouchable. Meet Joe Black, astounding! The Remains of the Day, truly remarkable. I could go on and on. This man has a gift for acting like no other, it's a shame to see the actors of today.
Johnny Depp, your kidding me right. Is it because his portrayal of Willy Wonka just captured the essence of the film. What a lousy excuse of an actor, seriously.

Tom Cruise Tom Cruise is an American actor and filmmaker. Cruise has been nominated for three Academy Awards and has won three Golden Globe Awards.

Despite all that stupid stuff that came out of his mouth, Tom Cruise is an insanely good actor. (Minus Eyes Wide Shut) Everything he puts his heart and soul into is an instant success. Very few actors have that ability.

Eyes Wide Shut is considered to be one of his best performances and it's also considered one of Kubrick's best movies. - Tia-Harribel

Tom is the ultimate action star. His talent is amazing and his movies always makes me feel comfortable and that's is something I love

Rainman, A few Good men, The color of Money, Magnolia, Tropic Thunder and so on are enough proof that the man can act. Les Grossman for the win!

Tom Cruise is the greatest actor ever. I liked all of his movies, I even loved the mummy.

Clint Eastwood Clinton "Clint" Eastwood Jr. is an American actor, film director, producer, musician, and political figure.

Clint Eastwood is perhaps the only actor I have seen who can capture such inspiration just by shifting his eyes and not having to say a word.

No 28 on this list no way he is an outstanding actor and one of the best in his generation. Love this guy - mickyc

Are you feeling lucky, punk? He is so good with lines and his charisma is very strong. I think he deserves to be the top one on this list. Most of his spoken words are being copied and the way he delivers it is very expressive. I don't think that there is still a kind of actor that could level his ability. Not even Pierce Brosnan can compared to him. He is truly a legend. Since, there is only two kinds of people in this world, the one who is loaded and the one who digs. You dig.

Clint would say nothing and yet catch your eye and of course the camera.

He created a genre. Two of them, actually. The 3 movies that would make you understand why he is so great are High Plains Drifter, Dirty Harry, and Gran Torino. He is pure grit, and could make mince meat of John Wayne, James Arness, or Jimmy Stewart any day.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

The Most Iconic Actor in the world. The Rock has starred in countless movies such as: Tooth Fairy, Jumanji, Journey to the Mysterious Island (my personal favourite) and Scorpian King and so forth. The Rock is easily the most cast able actor and his name sells more than any one else.

Tooth Fairy, Jumanji, Journey to the Mysterious Island and more.

I love your movies like jumanji and especially central intelegance

I have frowned to love him
My favorites
Hobs and Shaw
Every movie he is in
