    My answer is close to Irish’s. Overall, I like and admire actors and actresses who champion worthy causes, arent complete idiots,  and who are or were among the best at their craft.

    A chicken-out answer, I suppose.

    Difficult but…

    Actor:
    1) Humphrey Bogart
    2) Cary Grant
    3) Al Pacino (yes he’s hammy now but he made so many films I love in the 70s)
    4) Toshiro Mifune
    5) Jack Nicholson
    6) Gene Hackman
    7) Daniel Day Lewis

    I would have liked to put Marlon Brando on my list but when he is bad he is really bad. Same for Robert DeNiro who has been phoning it in a lot lately.

    Actress:
    1) Katharine Hepburn
    2) Meryl Streep
    3) Bette Davis
    4) Penelope Cruz
    5) Audrey Hepburn

    This is so true. De Niro used to be my favorite but he keeps getting worse and worse roles
