    We all know some actors that seem to say yes to every movie offer they get. However, we don’t really talk about the actors that are careful with their movie choices.

    Who do you think the most careful with the movies they star in???

    What do you mean by ‘careful’? Careful they’re working with Directors they like? Not working with someone they dont like? Careful that the film has the potential for box office glory? Independent films only need apply? Choosing films with potential ‘critical’ appeal?

    I think an example of a careful actor is Daniel Day-Lewis who since 1997 has done four films, with Lincoln being his fifth, two of those four we oscar nominations, one was a small indie pick and the other was a mis step for him because of the directors untested talents. Other examples I believe is Amy Adams who when she does independent films she shines and also in succesful films she picks good projects, she is probably not the best example but Day-Lewis is a perfect example.

    When I read that, the first people I thought of were Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling.

    However, when I think about it I think Hunger Games co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson have chosen their movies fairly well.

    This year, Jennifer Lawrence has done Hunger Games and House at the End of the Street.
    Josh Hutcherson has done Journey 2, Hunger Games, Detention and Red Dawn.

    I don’t think that Meryl is that careful.

    Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman are two whom I will see in pretty much anything because they rarely are involved in bad movies.

    Yeah, Brad Pitt and Juliette Binoche really seem to know how to pick them. I would’ve included Tilda too if it weren’t for the fact I thought “Kevin” was a terrible film.

    I guess Michelle Williams and Christoph Waltz (“Green Hornet” aside) would fit this discussion as well.

    Since I’m bored……these are the average metacritic scores for these actors’ last five films (didn’t include animated films); this is in order, from top to bottom:

    Brad Pitt: 74.8

    Michelle Williams: 72.8

    Ryan Gosling: 70.4 

    Marion Cotillard: 70.4 (couldn’t include Little White Lies because it doesn’t have a metacritic score)

    George Cooney: 69.8 

    Daniel Day-Lewis: 69.4

    Philip Seymour Hoffman: 66.8

    Tilda Swinton: 65

    Leonardo DiCaprio: 64.4

    Juliette Binoche: 64

    Meryl Streep: 62.4

    Kate Winslet: 62

    Cate Blanchett: 59.6 (could not include The Last Time I Saw Michael Gregg because it doesn’t have a metacritic score)

    Amy Adams: 59  
     
    …………..
      
              
    Cotillard’s been a supporting character in her last five films, so her score is somewhat deceiving if we’re looking at actors known for lead roles.
