Arnold Schwartzenegger, he's probably the most underestimated actor in the world.

As for Star Wars... well actually no actor/actress is much better than anybody else. And most of them haven't really done any big roles before SW. It's the total picture that makes SW so good.

Sean Bean has always be one of my fave actors...he was great in LOTR, even better in Goldeneye...

Nic Cage defintely...he's hilarious and really brilliant...Snake Eyes and The Rock are some of my faves with him in...

Samuel L Jackson too...I laughed at Shaft so much, and his other films have been great too...

Just my opinion, but Natalie Portman couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Just because of her beauty, I think many people said she was one of their favorite, and I think that that is one of the reasons there aren't many ugly actors/actresses today. Don't get me wrong, if you think she can actually acy, and you said she was one of your favorites because of that, good for you. ;)


And also don't get me wrong because I said there aren't many ugly actors/actresses, either. That doesn't mean I actually want to see them, but people should at least be recognized for their talent.

True dat. I agree.

Although I think she was a brilliant actor in "Leon - the professional", she didn't act *nearly* as well in the two sw flicks she were in, strangely enough...

she actually admitted that her performance in TPM wasn't that great, she said it was due to not having anyone to talk to during shoots and she was very lonely.......


i talk anymore, i'm becoming tearful

Hmmm... might have been why, yeah.

But why couldn't she have improved her acting in the meantime for episode 2? :confused:

Anyways, she was still great in "leon" I reckon.
