Okay – it was fun bitching about my most hated actors & actresses last week but now it’s time to do another list that Abbi of Where The Wild Things Are has done. You can see her list of “The Top Ten Actresses That I’d See In Pretty Much Anything” HERE. So here’s my own list of actresses I love. (Yes – I do love Drew Barrymore!). 🙂
With my favorite actors list, I’ve had to narrow it down by only including living actors so I’ve done the same here. Otherwise, Grace Kelly would be on this list. Now here are The Ten Actresses I’d Watch In Pretty Much Anything (in no particular order…):
Best Movie: Her or Catch Me If You Can but she was lovely in Junebug
Best Movie: Edge Of Tomorrow but I also love The Adjustment Bureau
Best Movie: Inglourious Basterds
Best Movie: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Best Movie: E.T. The Extra Terrestrial but I also love The Wedding Singer & Whip It
Chloe Grace Moretz
Best Movie: Hugo
Best Movie: Gravity but I do love Speed. (Gravity helped to put Bullock back on this list. But I still wouldn’t watch that thing she did with Melissa McCarthy. Damn! I missed her on my “Most Annoying” list…
Best Movie: Shame but she was better in Never Let Me Go. (If I’ve forgotten someone, Carey Mulligan would be the first one replaced. I found her disappointing in Shame and beyond bland in The Great Gatsby. Hopefully she’ll have another good role soon…)
Best Movie: Adventures In Babysitting
Best Movie: Ladyhawke
love how you included Shue in this eventhough she hasnt been great in anything in years 🙂 Not the biggest fan of Lawrence or Barrymore, but they have been growing on me lately
Shue rules! ; ) Jennifer Lawrence has been starting to get on my nerves a tiny bit lately so I hope that changes…
Can not say I am in real agreement with the list. Yes for Sandra Bullock and Carey Mulligan, to some extent I would say yes to Michelle Pfeiffer but a huge NO to Drew Barrymore. Sorry I see you ‘ love’ her but I have not been interested in anything she has done since ET.
Jodie Foster would have been on my list for sure, as would Judy Dench and Maggie Smith
My personal jury is still out on Chloe Grace Moretz but I think she could be great if she takes the right roles
Foster & Dench are okay. But I still love Barrymore. ; )
The problem with Barrymore is that she’s in some of the shittest movies ever made. I personally don’t want to sit through a Charlies Angels film or anything with Adam Sandler in it. You can keep her
Well, you know what? DREW BARRYMORE HATES YOU TOO! ; )
See, T9M? No one likes a girl named Drew.
Meanwhile, Movie Squirrel thinks everyone on this list is too fat.
Also, this list needs more Kate Beckinsale.
DREW RULES! Screw all y’all. Lol
Movie Squirrel would probably prefer my list of most annoying actresses. Keira Knightley is on that list. ; )
I don’t mind Kate Beckinsale but I’ve not actually seen her in THAT much stuff…
I do like Drew but agree on the Charlie’s Angels flicks. *shudder* I do like her with Adam Sandler, however. Love Amy Adams, and Emily Blunt. Ladyhawk is one of my favourites. (And yeah, I’d watch anything with Rutger Hauer in it!) Helen Mirren is another actor i would watch in anything, too.
Yay! Finally – someone who doesn’t hate Drew. Lol. The Charlie’s Angels films suck but Cameron Diaz especially doesn’t help them. I like her with Sandler as well! Everyone is so negative about him now but The Wedding Singer is great. I like Mirren as well. : )
Great list! I definitely agree with Chloe Grace Mortez, she’s fantastic 🙂
Thanks! : ) Yes – I look forward to seeing her in more stuff as she gets older. She’s a very promising young actress.
Nice list, Nutter.
I liked The Adjustment Bureau too… better take it off the list 🙂
Thanks! And thanks for not being a Drew Barrymore hater. Lol! What the hell…?!?
And you seem to be a fan of Dick! (Philip K)
Maybe we CAN agree on things occasionally! : )
I would watch Emily Blunt eat cereal: thank you for including her. It’s a good list apart from the serious omission of Uma Thurman 🙂
Thanks! Lol – Emily Blunt is great. And I have nothing against Uma. LOVE her in Kill Bill. : )
Great list T9M! All but Chloe Grace Moretz. My sister who is 19 met her in LA at some event and she was just horrible and a total bitch to her. I used to like her too and I have taken her off my good side. 😦
Thanks Melissa! : ) Aww – don’t tell me that! Man, I HATE famous people who are wankers in real life. If she keeps that up, she’ll go onto my Most Annoying list with Gwyneth Paltrow & Christian Bale!!! : (
I know right?! I wish I had never known that. My husband also met Christian Bale, well he was his waiter at a fancy restaurant and he was an absolute jerk. He did meet Steve Buscemi at a bar in Phillly and said he was the coolest and he bought him a drink. So you can add him to the nice guy list! 🙂
I misread that title at first…
hah!! I did too. . .
Lol. I’m not sure HOW you two misread this title… Do I WANT to know?! ; )
Great list! I would have put Chloe Grace in my most annoying list… she is so annoying! I do love Emily Blunt though!
Thanks! Everyone seems to like Emily Blunt. : ) What do you find most annoying about Moretz? I think she’s the only good thing in Kick Ass (I HATE that movie…).
She always seems like such a brat… not solid evidence at all haha!
Jennifer Connelly, at least back in her, ahem, younger, more ‘voluptuous’ days. The funny thing about actresses is that with cosmetic surgery and everything, they almost seem like different people as the years go by. Look what happened to Meg Ryan.
I considered putting Connelly on this list. I LOVE Labyrinth. : ) lol – I know what you mean about her, um, voluptuous days. I reviewed a horrible film of hers a while back (Career Opportunities) and may have mentioned that… ; ) I wish women wouldn’t do the plastic surgery thing but know Hollywood puts loads of pressure on them to “stay young”. It’s a shame about Meg Ryan. In the 80s into early 90s, she probably would have been on this list…
Some great choices. Have you seen Melanie Laurent in anything but Inglorious?? I loved her in it and was wondering what else she has been in… Liking Amy Adams a lot but didn’t realise she was in Catch Me If You Can (makes me want to watch that again…). Elizabeth Shue in Babysitting and not Leaving Las Vegas? … hmm, ok I’ll give you that. Pfeiffer will always be Cat Woman to me.
Thanks. : ) Yes – I’ve seen Laurent in Now You See Me (which I thought was a pretty shit film) and Beginners (which was pretty good). You really should watch Catch Me If You Can again! Fabulous, underrated film. I really didn’t like Inside Llewyn Davis much, though. Mulligan was at her very best in that Doctor Who episode Blink!
Thought Carey Mulligan was quite good in Inside Llewyn Davis too.
Emily Blunt is awesome. Drew Barrymore can’t act in anything. So bad.
Emily Blunt rules. As does Drew. If I had to spend the day with one of them, it would be Drew. I love Drew. So, yeah. ; )
I’m sure Drew has her fans but I just don’t see it. To each his/her own though.
I love Drew Barrymore in The Wedding Singer, but I especially love her in Music and Lyrics with Hugh Grant, which is an incredibly cheesy romcom, but perfect for duvet days or sick days in bed 🙂
I also love Anna Faris, she’s brilliant in Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds, the Scary Movie films and also The House Bunny 🙂
YAY! A person who likes Drew! I was getting bored with replying to all the haters. Lol! I love The Wedding Singer. Damn – I don’t love Anna Faris, though. But respect your opinion. Unlike these Drew haters on my blog!!! Lol! ; ) Thanks for the comment! I need to catch up with you. I’ve not had time to read any blogs lately! : (
Lawrence, Bullock, Blunt, and Pfeiffer–yessss! All the others…meh. Take ’em or leave ’em. Adams might eventually sneak her way into my faves. Here’s my question: where the heck is Meryl Streep?! 😉
I have no problem with Meryl Streep. : ) You prefer Jennifer Lawrence to Amy Adams? I definitely preferred Adams in American Hustle (although I didn’t love the movie…).
Meh. Adams didn’t win me over in American Hustle. Her fake English accent drove me nuts. Lol.
Excellent choices. I love everyone on here except Mulligan… who irrationally bugs me. Maybe my initial list should have been longer. Mr O is in love with Drew Barrymore.
Thanks! Yeah… Mulligan COULD end up on that other list if she’s not careful. I sometimes worry that Jennifer Lawrence could cross that line someday too. Yay for Mr O! I think Barrymore seems like a fun & decent person in real life (I let that cloud my judgement too much, which is why I hate people like Paltrow & Bale). I don’t normally get pissed off on my blog but… the Barrymore haters were starting to piss me off a little! Chill, people! It’s a personal opinion! Lol! (I can say this as I’m so late replying that no one will see my reply other than you now). ; )
Reblogged this on Where The Wild Things Are and commented:
Tired of all the hate? Table Nine Mutant serves up some actress love over at Cinema Parrot Disco.
Compiled my own list here: http://themoviereport.net/2014/08/08/top-ten-actors/ yeah, cheated and combined male and female…I had my reasons…
Remind me to look at your list later! ; )
oh yes – looksie…..now…before you forget: http://themoviereport.net/2014/08/08/top-ten-actors/
Very interesting list Mutant! These sorts of lists are always intimidating to me. Mostly b/c of all the annoying flack I might potentially get with my choices (as was the case with the Ten Most influential directors of all time) — why can’t people just let me choices be my choices?? Stop telling me what I should’ve included and what I should’ve discarded!!! lol
Regardless, I don’t think that’s gonna stop me from doing all these other lists as well. They’re just too much fun.
Thanks, Tom! Lol. I know what you mean. Bloody hell… I got more flak over naming a person I like (Barrymore) than I did for my lists of most annoying actors & actresses! THOSE are the lists I expected to be controversial, not this one!!! Lol. Have you done your lists yet? Can’t wait to see them. : )
I have not yet! Im waiting a couple more weeks and then I’m gonna dive right in! Had to put in some space between those and the blogathons I’m doing at the moment. DSB is being very social right now. He’s feeling vulnerable. . .
Cool! With the exception of Shue, who I don’t care about, I’m a fan of all these women. Great that you included Drew Barrymore. I LOVE HER.
YAY!!!! Lol. Wow – I can’t believe how many Barrymore haters there are. How can they possibly hate Drew??? Glad you agree. Thanks for the comment! You’ve cheered me up. ; )
Exactly. How can they? She’s so damn lovable
And glad I cheered you up!
Great list. My favorite here is Amy Adams, and another one I’d add would be Jessica Chastain.
Thanks! I love Amy Adams. : ) Chastain seems okay but I’ve actually not seen her in much…
Great work lady!
Am I the ONLY person in the world who really doesn’t like Amy Adams????
Lol. I think so!!!! I think she seems sweet. : )
She grates on my absolute last nerve
Apart from JLaw and Amy Adams, we have so different taste in actresses! Well, maybe Emily Blunt. But interesting read anyhow! 🙂
Hehe. Thank you! 🙂 I think it’s probably an age difference thing. Lawrence is kind of borderline for me – she could possibly end up on the other list someday. 😉
I can understand that, there is also something annoying about her.
