    Keeping this to just films because Glee & The Politician would be the top 2. Ryan & Brad really know how to bring out the best of her as a performer (vaudevillian campiness & melodramatic Meisner-esque moodiness). 1. Talented Mr. Ripley 2. Sliding Doors 3. The Royal Tennebaums

    What do you mean by this?

    The ice princess with a sh*tty personality is a decent actress. Should not be an Oscar winner but oh well.

    Liked her in A Perfect Murder and even Shallow Hal.

    She hasn’t been good in a movie since the 90s.
    Her best performance is still Shakespeare in Love and should have not won the Oscar.

    Beth – Contagion

    Violet – SIL

    Pepper – first IM movie

    Marge – Talented Mr Ripley

    I haven’t seen her in many movies but she was great in what I saw of her. Pity that Goop personality.

    1) The Royal Tenenbaums – should have been nominated over Connelly

    2) The Talented Mr. Ripley – the scene where she figured out that Ripley was the one who did it was perfection

    3) Proof – currently deciding if she’s in my top 5 for that year or not but she was underrated here

    HM: Shakespeare in Love, Seven

    Meisner is an acting where the thespian performs as if he or she are the person that exists in that moment, the actor stops thinking of what to say and do, and responds more freely and spontaneously, both physically and vocally.

    In regards to Paltrow, her best work incorporates this method of acting into a entire performance that requires melodramatic moodiness — where the primary emotion she’s portraying a variation on upset, anger, irritation etc. Think of her performances as Margot Tennebaum or Georgina Hobart as the textbook examples.

    Okay, this is why I was asking what you meant because that’s not what Meisner technique is about. I’m Meisner-trained. My teacher studied at Bill Esper’s school. Bill Esper was, as you probably know, Meisner’s most renowned student who went on to write about the technique and teach at his own school of the technique.

    Meisner is all about listening to the scene partner. It involves taking cues off of what you’re perceiving in the other actor. All realism acting techniques involve pretending you are the person who exists in that moment. And really, all acting techniques involve listening. But Meisner is sort of the use of only what is right there in front of you, as opposed to pulling from circumstances in mind. Really, no actor uses just one technique. They’re all blended together and they’re different for each person.

    Also, actors don’t play emotion. Emotion isn’t a thing to do, hence it can’t be played. Emotion arises and bubbles up, as it does for real human beings. But human beings don’t ever play emotions. You might say, “well, that child played upset in order to get what he wanted,” to which I’d argue, “yes, what the child played is manipulating his parent, which he did by pouting/looking cute/crying/et cetera.” Emotion is something that gets in the way, really. It’s usually never a tool, and almost always a hindrance.

    I recommend this book of Esper’s: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/actors-art-and-craft-william-esper/1112935571
