    We all love movies and movie stars have huge impact on our personal
    life,even someone take the characters played by movie stars as
    role models.My question is in terms of acting talent, which movie star do you find the best in the world.

    Russell Crowe.

    I'm also amazed at Sacha Baron Cohen ability to completely become his characters.

      Russel Crowe is also my favourite actor.If I have to  think of a replacement of his role in "A beautiful mind ", then only Tom Hanks
      could do it.

    I think you have it there with Tom Hanks. I love Denzel Washington as an individual who has an uncanny ability to connect emmotionally with his audience, while there's also Sean Penn who has wide range capacity of believable characters he has played.

    In the long run though, both of those traits are encompassed by Tom Hanks. Forrest from Forrest Gump, Viktor Navorski in The Terminal, Michael Sullivan in Road to Perdition, Sam Baldwin in Sleapless in Seattle, Walter Fielding Jr. in The Money Pit... the list just goes on and on. He is the epitome of acting.

        Denzel Washingtion should be in the top 10 list of all times.
        He is the most natural actor I have ever seen and I love his
        sense of using the space on the camera.

    I do love Denzel. Kevin Spacey is a fave. I always thought Toni Collette was really good, too.
    I'm sorry about not picking one, but it's soooo hard!!

    Tom Hanks, especially when I really think about some of his roles, is a great choice for a top spot. I've always been a fan of Johnny Depp, acting being one of the main reasons smile.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting a TON of good ones - classics, foreign actors that aren't coming to mind at present... http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-think005.gif

    Anthony Hopkins sprang to mind.
    Almost every character he plays .he seems to adapt well too.
    And I almost always, remember the story well ,mainly because of him.

    Meryl Streep ,I love most movies shes been in.

    Nicolas Cage
    Will Smith
    Gary Oldman
    John Malkovich
    Morgan Freeman

    When these guys act, you see the character they are playing and not the man behind the character. IMO

      1. Anthony Hopkins (nobody else???)
      2. Morgan Freeman
      3. Johnny Depp

    Meryl Streep; she convey emotion without saying a word.  From her first big role in Kramer vs. Kramer to her last role in Doubt she never fails to give a great performance.  Wait till you see her in Julia.
