Favorite Actresses

We all have favorites. People who we just love to love despiteof their credentials or filmography. Case and point: the recent love-fest for Sandra Bullock because everybody just seems to really love that girl in spite of never having turned in a performance that wowed everybody (sorry, The Blind Side.)

I've decided to list my favorite actresses. This is not a list of whom I think are the best actresses (with perhaps some overlappage), but rather a list of which actresses excite me on and off the screen. I've limited the number of actresses to fifteen, and they are actresses currently making movies. If you're reading this, please join in either in the comments or in your own blog and tell me about it so I can link to it!

Here they are...

(order is completely 100% random)
Marion Cotillard
Penelope Cruz
Anna Kendrick

Nicole Kidman
Michelle Pfeiffer
Parker Posey

Amy Adams
Susan Sarandon
Renee Zellweger

Julia Roberts
Reese Witherspoon
Keira Knightley
Jennifer Aniston
Sigourney Weaver
Evan Rachel Wood


  1. Too little, do twenty five or don't do it at all :)

    You lose points for Aniston. Sorry, if she's not Rachel I'm apathetic.

  2. Hahahaha maybe I'll add another ten just for you Andrew.

    I love Jen as Rachel, and at first I was resistant to her outside of Friends. I've come around!

  3. Fantastic choices.

    Well, I've always liked Sandra Bullock. I haven't seen The Blind Side, but from what I have seen of her, she's a very funny, charming, likable actress. It's completely understandable why people love her persona, despite the number of mediocre films she's been in.

    And no Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett? That's a surprise... I find that oddly audacious, ha ha.

  4. Cate is literally number 16 on this list.

    But no Meryl. I'm not a hater or anything, but she's not one of my favorites exactly. Don't get me wrong,I lovee some of her roles (especially Adaptation.), but for this list she didn't quite fit.

  5. I LOVE your picks! All my favorites!

  6. HJP- Thanks! I like your tastes also (obviously) hahaha.
