43 Sean Penn Sean Penn Sean Justin Penn is an American actor, filmmaker, and political activist. He has won two Academy Awards, for his roles in the mystery drama Mystic River and the biopic Milk.

Best actor ever! Deserves to be in top 5, at least top 10! I Am Sam was the best movie I have ever seen. I cried like a baby! I think he and Tom Hanks are greatest ever. Put them in a movie together and just watch the tickets fly at the box office! Penn, Hanks, De Niro, Pacino, Brando, Hopkins, Hoffman, Denzel Washington, Nicholson, Daniel Day Lewis. Those are top ten no specific order. Love them, they define what Hollywood should be.

He is the actor of his Generation, and deserves to be in the Top 10, alongside Daniel Day-Lewis, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino & Robert de Niro. I think he is placed number 45, because he doesn't appear in The Big Blocbusters, and that is RIDICULOUS! Who can forget his courageous performance in Dead Man Walking? Or his thrilling & intense performances in: She's So Lovely, Hurlyburly, I Am Sam, Mystic River, Milk & in The Tree of Life, he was spellbinding and made some moments that will never be erased from my memory. Bravura! One of The Maestro's of Acting.

This top ten list sickens me with horrible mainstream actors that attract the public for their looks such as Robert Pattinson can pass the superb acting of Sean Penn who has won the most oscars for a leading role and all the emotions he puts into the films which revolve around him

Why is this man not in the top 5...2 Academy Awards, 4 nominations...He has been awesome since Spicolli...great in dramas...Love him in Mystic River...

44 Matt Damon Matt Damon

Matt Damon's obviously one of the best actors ever! His movies are so great, well picked and his acting is very believable

Matt Damon should be on the top 10 right now! he is an extremely talented actor and is very cute too. ive seen so many movies with him in them and i havent disliked any one of them! u go Matt! - biac000

It's worth watching all of his movies. It all has good stories and his acting is so GREAT! Plus the fact that he's a gorgeous good-looking man! Aw! My husband hates him...

His acting is very cool,even when it is about to end.His movies that I like the most is The Martian and Elysium.He should be at least top 10 or 20.

45 Hugh Jackman Hugh Jackman Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician . Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters .

He is a good actor, just watch the fountain, kate and leopad and prestige, and also he is agood host too, just see 81st academy award function.

! Hugh Jackman should be #1 for all of the movies has done then and especially now. I love Hugh Jackman and I would definitely love to meet him one day! Hugh, if you see this then I appreciate you and all you have done. You're the best! ~Haylo

He is very versatile in his roles and is very convincing

In my opinion he should be the best of all time, because all his movies and just unbelievable and it is just like WOW! You have to watch X men and Wolverine movies he is someone amazing!

46 Mark Wahlberg Mark Wahlberg Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg is an American actor, producer, businessman, and former model and rapper.

Shooter- an exceptional movie. Italian Job wasn't that bad either.

He is the best actor in the past now in the present and he will remain the best actor

I fell there is a lot of disrespect towards this guy, will smith, adam sandler, and jim carrey but why? They are all extremely good actors.

Boogie Nights? Pain & Gain? The Other Guys? Top top acting and he makes those films. Shooter was a great watch but I think he's an underrated actor

47 Christopher Walken Christopher Walken

"I have a fever, and the only prescription is MORE COWBELL"
- Christopher Walken - XxDoctorDrumsxX

No one surpasses Walken in the diversity of roles and talent including dance except James Cagney but no other actor can touch Cagney and his skills on and off the silver screen. It is a shame to see how far Walken has fallen on this list. His performance in movie The Deer Hunter was a masterpiece that was so provacative that it elevated De Niro and Streep star status as well.

he's the funniest guy in the world. never fails to make me lol. - rsflores9

There's something really wrong when this guy is at 44...what the heck...should be in top 20 for real

48 Paul Newman Paul Newman Paul Leonard Newman was an American actor, film director, entrepreneur, professional racing driver and team owner, environmentalist, activist and philanthropist.

Paul Newman at #44. Below Jared Leto and David Duchovney? I'm biased though. He's my #1.

Just look at his films: The Hustler: (Academy Award Nomination - Best Supporting Actor) The Verdict: (A. A. Nomination-BA) Cool Hand Luke: (A. A. Nomination-BA) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The Sting. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof: (A. A. Nomination) Hud: (A. A. Nomination-BA) The Color of Money: (A. A WIN-BA) Road to Perdition: (A. A. Nomination) The Hudsucker Proxy. Slap Shot. Rachel, Rachel (A. A. WIN-Best Movie) Absense of Malice: (A. A. Nomination-BA) Honorary Academy Award 1986.
7 Academy Award Nominations and 1 win.

Forget the awards. He was the ultimate professional actor, who even two years before his passing thought he could always do better. I think of Paul Newman as a guy who had "it. " He could say so much without saying a word. A great, great actor. P. N. RIP. - corebare32

I love Paul Newman and yes, he probably should be in the top ten, but the problem is who to take out? Everyone has their own opinion of course, but to me there are already actors not in the top ten that should be, mainly Dustin Hoffman and Anthony Hopkins. It's very easy to say that there are twenty or so actors that are top ten quality, but you've only got ten spots. With the current top ten, I think all are legit except Will Smith (who I still like, just not as much as others apparently do) and this Kahn from India that I've never seen. I would love to put Newman in the top ten, but not at the expense of an Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, or Daniel a Day-Lewis.

He's not only just a great actor, he is a great human being. He was always giving to charities and he made one himself. He was self-less and intelligent. x)

He had the most gorgeous blue eyes and he played some classic roles. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid! I can't believe he is under Channing effin' Tatum. Just because he's hot doesn't mean he's a good actor. Frankly, I think he is terrible. Paul Newman, all the way! - NicePants

Best of the best watch the old movies new guys you will see whom should be #1 on this list Paul Newman really is the very best!

50 Orlando Bloom Orlando Bloom Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom is an English actor. After having his breakthrough as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he rose to fame by further appearing in epic fantasy, historical epic, and fantasy adventure films.

One of the best actors in the world. One of the kind actor. He should be #1 on that list. - tem

He does best in Pirates of the Carribean because he's so hot, but he acts really good in The Lord of the Rings. Pirate or elf, he does well as either. - amyhenry

Orlando bloom beats anyone anyway he is hot sexy and a great actor especially in lord of the rings and pirates of the Caribbean

He is the best one...i like his looks and his acting

51 Phillip Seymour Hoffman Phillip Seymour Hoffman

VERY genius such an incredible actor I believe every moment he is in his character's skin. He's magnificient.

Amazing actor who may be one of best supporting actors. And the few handful of times he is given a leading role it is superb. When one's looks are not the reasons for ones success that's talent. Any role he could have taken and done just as good if not better.

why he is not higher in the list i do not know....GREAT actor, magnolia...boogie nights ...:P many more

A legend. His roles were bang on bar none, one of the greatest

52 Humphrey Bogart Humphrey Bogart Humphrey DeForest Bogart was an American screen actor whose performances in iconic 1940s films noir such as The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and The Big Sleep earned him status as a cultural icon.

It wasn't that he was good looking. He just didn't take any s*** from anyone. Well, in MOST of his movies. But I would hire him as protection, or to solve who stole ANYTHING from me. "And we'll always have Paris" - joenav91

Bogey's natural talent and astounding presence on the screen is simply second to none, as yet. I'm an avid film enthusiast and critic, and I haven't yet seen anyone equal bogey's great performances. In my opinion he's the greatest screen actor to date.

He could be number one. Matter of fact most actors like him and that black and white era blow this list away. This is a college or lower mentality list. Sorry people.

Bogie...?..Maltese falcon, African queen, Casablanca etc etc no comment necessary. The best (almost apart from Steve McQueen).

53 Hugh Laurie Hugh Laurie James Hugh Calum Laurie, is an English actor, writer, director, musician, singer, comedian, and author.

Why has this man not won an Emmy for his portrayal of Dr. House?

He is such a versatile actor, and fully commits himself to every role from House to Blackadder to Jeeves and Wooster to A bit of Fry and Laurie.
If you want proof, watch the House episode Detox, and then try to say that he didn't deserve the emmy.

One of the most underrated, versatile, and downright talented actors of the 20th century. The man has talent coming out of his ears. His brilliant comedic wit, his dry yet human charm. From Blackadder to House, the man is amazing. He can make you laugh one second, and cry the next. Definitely in my top five.

A great actor. Even better than House is his performance as Bertie Wooster in the BBC series.

Am I the only person who remembers Hugh Laurie from Friends?

54 David Tennant David Tennant David Tennant is a Scottish actor known for his roles as the Tenth Doctor in the British television series Doctor Who, Alec Hardy in Broadchurch, Giacomo Casanova in the TV serial Casanova, Kilgrave in Jessica Jones, and Barty Crouch, Jr. in the Harry Potter movie series.

Why David is the eighty-fifth in this competition, I will never know. This man is amazing and life changing. Not only is his acting beautiful, but the sheer amount of emotion he can summon with a snap of his fingers can lift your heart to the moon or rip out your heartstrings. I do love so many of these actors, but David was the one that inspires me the most. He deserves more than this. David is fantastic.

David Tennant is one of the best actors ON THIS GODDAMNED PLANET and totally is, like, in the top 10 of this list. Meaning: VOTE FOR TENNANT GUYS.

David Tennant is my favorite actor of all time although I only saw him on Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Hamlet and How to train your dragon that is good enough to qualify as my favorite. He is the best actor on this planet on any planet including Gallifrey. His is witty funny-Hilarious really and oh my gosh I scream every time I hear his voice and I scream every time I hear he's going to be in a serious movie role or has been in a movie I've seen!
I love You David Tennant And I love Doctor Who and everything else you have been in. Hang in there Jude (Okay I saw a part of Jude)

He is oviously the BEST actor on the planet; from the way he can tear your heart out in a snap of your fingers, and the way he can make you smile in the blink of an eye, he truly is the BEST actor and Doctor. VOTE TENNANT!

55 Bryan Cranston Bryan Cranston Bryan Lee Cranston is an American actor, voice actor, screenwriter, director, ordained Pastor and producer.

Cranston is capable of portraying a very wide variety of characters. His earlier T.V. role as Hal on Malcom in the Middle is absolutely nothing like the other characters he plays. When one first watches the award-winning Breaking Bad, it is hard to believe he could ever play the goofy, incompetent Hal. Walter White (Breaking Bad) is a character with so much depth that Cranston completely personifies as well as makes his own.

Watch "Crawl Space" in season 4 of Breaking Bad. The end of the episode, with him in the crawl space breaking down is the BEST ACTING EVER DONE.

Why is he not higher on this list? That's bull that Matt Damon is a better actor than Bryan Cranston

Breaking bad

56 Alan Rickman Alan Rickman Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman (February 21st 1946 - Janurary 14th 2016) was an English actor and director known for playing a variety of roles on stage and screen, most notably Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series and Hans Gruber in Die Hard. He passed away of pancreatic cancer in 2016

He's got the most gorgeous voice, he makes his character unique love him x - WhOwAnTsToLiVeFoReVeR

Terrific British actor, both theatre and movies. Remember Die Hard (bad guys leader) and Robin Hood (again).

He is one of the greatest actors in the world.
He can act, direct and also sing. He has done Hollywood movies and independent films. Also He has performed in several plays.

Alan Rickman deserves Oscar nomination for Severus Snape.

Raise your wands...

57 Eddie Murphy Eddie Murphy

Didn't notice this topic, Eddie Murphy by himself dethrones all the others. His experience, and charismatic personality took him to that high level status that he is today. He is the phenom of acting. - Undertaker15-0

He just CAN'T be only #117! I mean seriously, he AT LEAST is supposed to be in the top 10!

Eddie is such an awesome man plus he did such a good job in norbit I mean come on he played a awesome guy and a fat lady at the same time. That guy can act

Eddie is one off the best actors I ever he can't be at 60

58 Jason Statham Jason Statham Jason Statham is an English actor. He is known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver.

Ok, he might be very selective in what he acts (which is obviously action movies), but I believe he is the best at what he does. He shows great intensity and desire in his field of acting. And that is why in my opinion he is one of the top actors overall, and the best action star by far.

Snatch, Lock stock and two smocking barrels, and the hilarious performance as the monk in Mean machine. That's why he is best

He isn't a very good actor, he doesn't experiment, and other than Revolver he sticks to safe films. But I think he is amazing, he doesn't try to be anything he's not and has a very good sense of humour.

He's good at action movies like transporter

59 Sylvester Stallone Sylvester Stallone

Stallone deserves to be 1 at least. I mean Rocky the best movie I ever saw and Sylvester Stallone is the only reason why it's good, I mean Johnny depp is crap and so far Sylvester Stallone is the only one good enough to be number 1.

the way he does Rocky Balboa is so amazing and realistic!

Rocky, Rambo - these aren't so much movies as they are American Icons. Have you never seen Rambo: First Blood? Rocky? Some movies are so excellent they spawn a sequel, but 5? That takes an incredible movie. And he's still doing it! The Expendables is going to be yet another franchise that he's spearheading for a third entry.

Sylvester stallone is an awesome, badass, humble and fantastic actor. Rocky has inspired me to keep going no matter how many hits I endure. In rambo, he's proved that anything is possible, even defeating an entire squadron with not a lot of weapons. I don't even know why he is here, he should be #1 on this list. Depp will never compare to the raw, badass action star, stallone.

60 Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

HOW COULD BE OUR SAVIOR NOT ON THE NUMBER 1? ARNOLD WILL ALWAYS BE THE HERO BECAUSE OF COMMANDO. HE SHOULD BE ON NUMBER 1 BECAUSE OF HIS MOVIES LIKE TRUE LIES, TERMINATOR. YO, ARNOLD you'll ALWAYS BE THE BEST IN HOLLYWOOD MY VOTE IS ON YOU.

Can any one replace arnold in terminator series, I don't think so. He should be in top 20 at least. What a great acting in those movies. I think acting without any emotionin face, eyes and mind is too difficult than emotionful acting. He did a great work as machines without any emotions

idk if I spelt hiz name rite lol but he is awseme I meen the terminator kindergarten cop etc and he shood be in the top 10 - baseballman

What?!?!?! How is Arnold Schwarzenegger so low on this list?! He should be NUMBER 1! At least number 2 but nothing lower!
