So just figured I'd post something kind of random so who are some of your favorites? I personally would say
-Johhny Depp
-Brad Pitt
-Helena Bonham Carter
-Jason Statham
-Edward Norton
-Steve Martin
-Jamie Lee Curtis
-John Cleese
-Jack Black
-Jim Carry
-Ben Stiller
-Owen Wilson(though he seems to always play essentially the same character)
and that is all I can think of at this particular moment

Al Pacino
Robert DeNiro
Cissy Spacek
Meryl Streep

Though I don't tend to admire actors/actresses really all that much. I like their work--but I don't feel they have an aura surrounding them. They're just people, like you and me.

I mostly feel the same way in that sense, acting is just what they do for a living...and in a sense seems like it would be really stressful getting that much attention. I mean I don't care to get the lastest updates on who so and so actor is getting divorced, or who got intoxicated and made an ass of them-self I mean its like one wrong move and the medias all over their a**, that would be obnoxious. I mean like my bad night at that concert I went to...if I was a celebrity of some kind it would be all over the tabloids and I'd feel even crappier reading all the mockery and judgement about how I lost hold of myself and am such a degenerate its gotta suck in a lot of ways probably.
