This is not a tag really, just a list of the top 5 celebrities on my list. The reasons they are among my favorites and a few random things I know about them. Things like this support the proposition that my self and this blog of mine is not solely about science, technology and other geeky stuff. Fret not though, to think that this will be a gossip or celebrities news post, trust me you would find this celebrities Blog a much better read as compared to this blog of mine.
Anyways, and without further delay I give you the following top 10 Celebrities in my personal list and this is in no particular order.
Sean Connery – okay he is old but he’s among my most admired and idolized actors out there. I’m a fan of his films and his scottish accent. It sounds so regal and so authoritative. The first Sean Connery film that I saw was “First Knight”, which co-starred Richard Gere and that beautiful actress. (I forgot her name and I’m too lazy to ask Google for it as of this writing.) The second one, and this is among my all-time favorite films is “The Rock” which he co-starred with Nicholas Cage. The action film is just a brilliant piece of filmaking. Too bad Hollywood no longer makes this kind of action movies. These were followed by some of his James Bond films and now I understood how he rose to international stardom. I’d argue that Sean Connery was the classic James Bond actor. Finally, there’s “The Untouchables” which won him his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. He deserves it and more.
Nicholas Cage – since I mentioned him earlier I’m going to move on to him now. Nicholas Cage captured my attention in his off the hook action film “Face Off” (no pun intended) with John Travolta. Damn! (pardon me, but I think you’ll agree with me later on) This movie is definitely among the best action films ever. The gun fights, the acting – Nicholas and John were a perfect match. Nicholas really impressed me when I saw the softer, angelic side of him in “City of Angels” (one of the few films that made me cry). The story, the script, and the ending of the movie just moved me to tears. Plus, it’s soundtrack “Iris” by the Goo goo dolls remains one of my eternal LSS (last song syndrome) songs.
John Travolta – Okay, you already know by now how I moved over to John Travolta. I first saw him in “Look Who’s Talking” a brilliant, comedic and heartwarming film. The most memorable scene for me was when John’s character removed a splinter from Kirstie Alley’s (okay, I Googled this time) finger and they sounded as if they were in the heat of lovemaking. Just brilliant! Of course, John was great in “Face Off”, I really laughed when Nicholas Cage made fun of John’s “ridiculous chin.” Good stuff. Of course who could forget him for “Grease”, “Pulp Fiction and “Saturday Night Fever”?
Natalie Portman – I remember her from “Mars Attack!” She was cute back then, but when I saw her in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace without her silly Queen Amidala make-up, man I was lovestruck. Then came Attack of the Clones, I was cursing and raving mad at that wildcat of some sort for scathing her beautiful skin. I wanted more. lol I got more, of her acting prowess of course, in “V for Vendetta” and “Cold Mountain.” She’s a good actress, a very beautiful woman what more could one ask for, but more.
Anne Hathaway – Natalie Portman was a big crush of mine. Anne, was a bigger one. When I saw her in “Princess Diaries” I almost forgot about Natalie Portman for she reminded me of my former girlfriend (there, I blew it). Her eyes, her smile and her voice, I was swept away. Critics are right, her acting is reminiscent of Julia Robert’s because she is that damn good of an actress. She’s the reason why I tried to search the local bookstores for a copy of the “Devil Wears Prada” that had her picture. Another reason why I went to see “Brokeback Mountain.” Ang Lee is a genius! And I cannot wait to see Anne’s next film.
