 5 favourite actors/actresses

1. Angelina Jolie - Angelina is a favourite because she always plays a strong role, and goes against the stereotypes of women. She always plays the part flawlessly and is a massive role model to females around the world. But she isn't just a favourite to me because of her acting. The fact that she has taken on the role of being a mother to 6 children, 3 of which are adopted, has a stable relationship with Brad Pitt, and has kept hold of her career in the process makes me admire her more than any other actor/actress.

2. Leonardo Dicaprio - Leonardo has been my favourite actor since the first time I watched Titanic. There's always been something in the way he acts that grabs my attention and keeps me completely enticed for the whole of the movie. He has pure talent and his roles are never forced or unsuited to him. He embeds himself into the character and always gives an amazing performance.

3. Johnny Depp - I first discovered this actor whilst watching Pirates of the Carribean. I immediately loved the character of 'Jack Sparrow' and thought Depp played the part perfectly as he brought he modelled his own personality into the character as he does in the majority of his movies. This is why he is one of my favourite actors.

4. Jennifer Aniston - Jennifer is one of my favourites because she always shows her passion for acting in all her movies. She manages to keep the audience's attention in any role given to her. Her performances in the film Marley and Me, and TV programme Friends are my favourites.

5. Zac Efron - What I admire about Zac Efron is the fact that he doesn't just pick a certain type of character in all his movies. He doesn't stay in his comfort zone like some actors do, he picks different roles to play yet never seems to differ in performance levels.
