“ One of the greatest Actors ever - to me.
Can play very diverse Characters. From Sherlock Holmes and IronMan to Chaplin and an italian shoe salesman...nothing seems impossible to him.
Even if his characters always are a little excentric, he succeeds in giving them an authentic aura.
I just love this guy.
Great Actor, interesting Person in Interviews and...goddamnit...he's sexy. ” - sarah-huebner3
Leonardo DiCaprio
Actor, Inception
Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3, to a major teenage heartthrob in the 1990s, as the hunky lead actor in movies such as Romeo + Juliet and Titanic...
“ I recognized just lately, how great this guy acts. Always liked his films (but Titanic. I hate it. And I hated the Romeo&Juliet adaption he was in...crazy stuff for shakespeare lovers like me) but he never really blow my mind...but then I watched J.Edgar and had to rewatch his stuff and was...overwhelmed by his talent to create freaky but still sympathetic characters.
Loved him in "J. Edgar", "Body of lies", "Catch me if you can" "Aviator" and "Inception". Can't wait to watch lot of his other earlier Films - such as Shutter Island - and am really excited for him playing the great Gatsby this Winter. ” - sarah-huebner3

“ I just fell in love head over heals with his Interpretation of a modern Sherlock holmes. Best acting perfomance I have seen within years.
An extraordinary talented actor who appears to be sympathetic and clever as well as - just have to admit that even if I risk sounding girly once again - very good looking.
His acting is one of the many reasons I got addicted to the BBC series "Sherlock". ” - sarah-huebner3
Martin Freeman

“ I already noticed Martin before him being casted as Dr. John Watson for the greatest TV Show of the century: "Sherlock", but just then noticed how talented he really is.
He really deserved the prices and nominations he gained for his performance at the show. This man seems to be able to act quiet everything out, you ask him to. Made me cry at "Reichenbach Fall" of course.
Besides the fact that he is simply doing a very good job, I really like his humour at public occasions. He seems to be very sympathetic and very down to earth. ” - sarah-huebner3

“ I have a little girly crush on Jude Law.
This guy looks way to good to stay objective towards his acting...but really, he ist great, isn't he.
"Alfie", "The Holiday", "Gattaca", "Cold mountain" and "Sherlock Holmes" might be the films with my favorite performances of his.
Would love to see him on theatre stage...

“ I'm a Supernatural addict and consider myself to be an absolute Dean-Girl.
To me, he's one of the most underrated actors in the business (and one of the hottest).
Watch his performance of a smartass Demon/Ghost Hunter who is addicted to good scocth, beer and pretty girls but also is more than broken inside and tends to cry from time to time (always quiet heartbreaking).
I really hope, that if Supernatural ever finds it's final ending (NOOOO ^^), he's gonna be offered some better roles than the ones in "Devour" and "My bloody valentine". ” - sarah-huebner3
