A lovely little collection of my favorite movie stars. Enjoy!
From the perfectly adorable little scar on his chin to
his sexy smirk, Harrison is one of Hollywood's long-time shining stars. :)
He has starred in 7 of the top 30 grossing films of all time(!) and although
he was nominated for an Academy Award, he still hasn't received
one.....yet!! I have a feeling that Harrison will be around for a long
time...he'll bring home that golden statue one of these days! :)
My favorite Harrison Ford movies?
Witness (nominated for Best Actor in 1986),
Clear and Present Danger, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Regarding Henry, Air Force
One, The Fugitive
"Why," a male friend asked me a few months ago, "do
girls like Ed Harris so much?" It seems to be a mystery to the men,
but to the girls... it's no wonder that those baby blues of his has so many
females flocking to the big screen to see him! Even when he is playing
a tough guy...in the end, the girls still see him as a sweetie and all we
really want to do is just give him a big hug!!!
favorite Ed Harris movies?
The Right Stuff, Places in the Heart, The Abyss, The Truman Show
Whether he is rescuing
characters off of exploding toilets (LW3) or
fighting to free Scotland from English rule (Braveheart),
Mel always seems to sizzle on-screen! He has a very energetic personality and it
definitely comes through in his movie roles...I try not too miss too many chances to get a
peek at that mischievous twinkle in those blue eyes of his!
My favorite Mel Gibson
Lethal Weapon 2 and 3,
Conspiracy Theory, Maverick
I have been watching George since his early days on 80's TV shows, E/R and
The Facts of Life. Although I was disappointed that he is leaving ER this
season, I am definitely looking forward to seeing much more of him at the movies (you get
a much better view of him on the big screen, you know!)
My Favorite George
One Fine Day, The
A unique addition to my
list favorite Hollywood men, but I love the way he carries himself....he almost has a
regal presence about him. I must admit, I did not see his performance in his Academy
Award winning role of Gandhi, but I do have a few Ben Kingsley favorites.
My favorite Ben Kingsley
Dave, Sneakers, Searching for Bobby Fisher
.... Let's not forget the ladies....
I have been a Kate Hepburn
fan for as long as I can remember. The very first movie I saw of hers was Little
Women - one of my favorite books when I was a little girl. And I believe
that, to this date, she has received the most Oscar nominations (12) and the most Oscar
wins (4) in an acting category in history.
My favorite Katharine
Little Woman (although
I liked the Winona Ryder version best), Desk Set, Adam's Rib, The Philadelphia Story
(is there anyone who doesn't like Jimmy Stewart?)
Sandra began her movie career
quietly, starring in minor roles, until her blockbuster hit, Speed, with Keanu
Reeves. Since then she had been on the rise and has become one of my favorite movie
My Favorite Sandra
While you Were Sleeping,
Speed, The Net, Hope Floats, A Time to Kill (you have to see the superb performance by the
adorable Matthew McConaughey in this movie...he is the one who makes this movie so
Julia has been called "America's
Sweetheart of the 90s" Just like Sandra Bullock, she started her career
quietly, but Pretty Woman was the one that brought her to everyone's attention and she
continues to make quite a name for herself in Hollywood!
My Favorite Julia
Pretty Woman, My Best
Friend's Wedding, Steel Magnolias (what my friend calls "That 'chick'
movie!"), Runaway Bride
Gwyneth stars in one of my all-time favorite
movies - Emma (based on the book by Jane Austen). I was also very pleased
to see her win the award for Best Actress at the Academy Awards this year for Shakespeare
My Favorite Gwyneth
Emma, Sliding Doors,
Shakespeare In Love
Meg is definitely one of my all-time favorite
Hollywood stars! At almost 38 years of age, she can still look so perky and cute on
screen - especially when she is in a role opposite Tom Hanks! The very first movie I
saw her in was her small role as Anthony Edwards wife in Top Gun and I have seen
almost all of her movies since then. (Visit my "Featured Movies" page for info
