Okay, I know a lot of y'all have a "Top5" group of actors or actresses who grace a favorite spot in your heart because we've discussed it over the years. I'm talking people you both love to see in movies and who you just love to see. Period.
The Top5 list could be lustful, could be an obsession to stalk, could be someone you think is just cool who you want to hang out with and go eat fondue. Whatever. Just leave your own Top5 in the comments--and if I "know you" know you, please put initials or something so I'll know it's you.
My Top5 philosophy usually means it's someone I've seen in movies that year or recently--whether new or old films. If they take a hiatus for a few years, I drop 'em. But that's just me. My current Top5 reads like this...
1/ Rachel Weisz. Just look at the photo! She's a longtime member of the Top5 list and has been at the top since 2002 and will be on it '06 and '07. Heck, she might even challenge Winona Ryder for longest span of time on the Top5.
2/ Zooey Deschanel. Not only fetching but seems like she'd be very cool to know and hang out with.
3/ Scarlett Johansson. Reeks of Hollywood star of old--not a lot of the stars nowadays can say the same.
4/ Eva Green. Freckled French actress who is hard to miss in The Dreamers and The Kingdom of Heaven.
5/ Morena Baccarin. From Serenity/Firefly...Likely one timer as I doubt I see her in anything this year but she played the sexiest and classiest space prostitute ever in the series and film.
Dropped out of the Top5: Paz Vega, Emily Mortimer and Rosario Dawson.
Update, January 30th. I saw Match Point tonight and I'm gonna have to put Emily Mortimer and her quirky British charm back in at #5. Goodbye Morena, just haven't seen you in enough.
Dropped out of the Top5 but was put back in: Emily Mortimer.
So, this is my list until at least summer comes, ha.
Rachel Weisz, Zooey Deschanel, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Green and Emily Mortimer.
Don't be chicken...what's your Top5?
