Memes: all this LJ has become.

From aries11 : Comment and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your Livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.

Imma be IMDB-ing this sucker all over the place, naturally, as I am at a complete loss for titles with some of these people.  Your challenge now is to figure out whether I picked my favorites because they're truly my favorites, or because I had very few options to choose from.

ACTORS:
Orlando Bloom: Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.  

Freddie Prinze, Jr.: I might have seen I Know What You Did Last Summer once upon a time?  My memory is very fuzzy.  That's it, though.  He's best known to me for TV work and being Sarah Michelle Gellar's husband of a shockingly long time.  

Pierce Brosnan: Mrs. Doubtfire or Dante's Peak.  

Robert Downey, Jr.: I have never seen one of his movies!  *shock* Apparently all my love comes straight from his time on Ally McBeal.

Gary Sinise: Forrest Gump

Samuel L. Jackson: Jurassic Park

Kurt Russell: The Fox and the Hound.  Apparently he was the voice of Adult Copper, and apparently, I have not seen anything else - although Dreamer is on my to-watch list!

Morgan Freeman: ...Evan Almighty.  You can revoke my good-taste license any time now.  Um, also, I saw the first 25 minutes of Driving Miss Daisy once?  If I had finished it, that would probably be my #1 pick.

Mike Myers: Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.  Now I feel unclean.

Ewan McGregor: never seen him

ACTRESSES:
Minnie Driver: never seen her

Meryl Streep: ...what the hell, how I have never seen a Meryl Streep movie?!  Apparently I just have a long queue of Streep movies I would *like* to see.

Anna Paquin: Fly Away Home

Scarlett Johansson: The Nanny Diaries.  I hate the fact that she stars in all these amazing movies when I can't stand her.

Kirsten Dunst: Jumanji.  Bring it On.  Mona Lisa Smile.  UGH, I like her face even less than ScarJo's, but she's in twice as many great films.  Unfair.

Isla Fischer: Definitely, Maybe (!!!!)

Rachel Leigh Cook: The Babysitters Club, both by default and because it was fun. 

Maggie Smith: In a head to head between Harry Potter (take your pick) and Sister Act, there is no winning.  

Emmy Rossum: never seen her

Amanda Bynes: What a Girl Wants.  But I adore her and all her work, so what is this BS news about her quitting acting?

This meme made me feel inadequate.  I am starting to think I have only seen about 200 movies in my life.  To my credit, at least I know who everyone is?  Kurt Russell threw me for a loop, but I just hadn't connected the name the face.  And maybe I am incapable of remembering what Ewan McGregor looks like and always think he is the dad from Everwood.  But mostly, I know my celebrities... 

~~~~~~~~~~
Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show
Terrible "reality" shows on VH1; specifically, pretty much anything that spun off Flavor of Love (except Rock of Love).  Starting with Flavor of Love 2, if I flipped on the TV and it was there, I'd follow I Love New York, Charm School, I Love Money, Real Chance of Love...  There's something mesmerizing about that concentrated level of trashiness + stupidity.  Fortunately I no longer have cable so I don't know what's going on these days, but for a couple years of college in there, I was addicted to that liquid crack.

As for shows that are actually available to me, despite the very loud noises of protest I have made against it lately, I habitually watch Two and a Half Men in syndication.  Yes, it's terrible!  Yes, I wish it would die and go away forever!  But there were a couple of years I watched it during prime time, and I guess it does sort of make me laugh.  Or at the very least, provides mindless entertainment when nothing else is on.

You didn't do too bad! I'm sorry if it was a hard list. If it's any consolation, I had a hard time coming up with an entire list of ten for each. I'm trying to give different performers to everybody who writes in.

Lol, not at all. You could have picked just about anybody; the end result still would have been "holy crap, I do not watch movies." Most of them are pretty big names, so nobody was more surprised then me when I could not come up with a single film.
