Natalie’s Favourite Actors

By May 28, 2012Nat-news

As you know, I’m slowly updating the biography page so it’s a better reflection of who Natalie is today. In trying to work out who Natalie’s favourite actors and actresses might be, I got a bit stuck. I guess once you reach Natalie’s level of stardom, interviewers don’t really ask “so who is your favourite actor?” anymore.

You’ll also know that I have a source who would likely know these answers, but I try not to be annoying (quite a difficult feat for me) and only email when it’s important. Like a new film rumour.

But given how frustrated I was, I decided to bite the bullet and ask. I’m glad I did because I got a heap of names, and these are just the first names that my source could think of.

So, after the jump, take a look at the actors and actresses that Natalie is a fan of…

First the ladies, starting with her “huge admiration” for…

Meryl Streep, Isabelle Hupert, Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, Laura Linney, Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Olivia Thirlby, Kat Dennings, Rooney Mara, Greta Gerwig, Emma Stone and Michelle Williams.

As for the guys, my source said she liked all these actors, but one name in particular was not just a “like” but a “she loves…”. Take a guess who it is in the comments section. First person to get it right wins a virtual cookie.

Michael Fassbender, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Jude Law, Clive Owen, Mos Def, Chris Hemsworth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jonah Hill, Eric Bana, Sasha Baron Cohen and Brad Pitt.

    Nope. Nope.

    Brad Pitt?

  • Jenski says:

    My guess is either Fassbender, Cohen, or Law.

    The lists are pretty much what I expected.

  • Dazza says:

    3 guesses?!?! That’s cheating! And all wrong 😛

    In retrospect I should have let everyone guess first and answer later, because now it’s just process of elimination.

    she loves Leo…is this so hard to believe?

  • viona says:

    Joseph Gordon Levitt for sure!!! I think she mentioned Bana, Law, Owen bcoz she had been working with them. it’s just respect. I’d love to see her with Leo.

  • Dazza says:

    Not JGL. Bare in mind this is from someone who would know who Natalie likes, not actually from Natalie herself. Although when you’re in the business I guess you can’t help but have some of your personal experiences with that person intertwined with your more objective view of their talent.

    But then again we’re probably no different. Some actors or actresses we’ll like more or less based on things outside of just their body of work.

  • ILoveNatalie says:

    My guess is Chris Hemsworth after seeing a interview of them together before the release of Thor

  • awiseone says:

    I say out of the 4 remaining names it’s Jonah Hill.
    If I’m correct I will explain why I figured it was him.

  • Dazza says:

    For Awise.

  • Dazza says:

    Was it her love of comedy?

  • a Bit in love says:

    most impressive…, sound like dath vader already….guess i’m too dull for this

  • omgzrachel says:

    Jonah Hill? Judging u, Nat.

  • jesslv74 says:

    Jude Law

  • jesslv74 says:

    Oops I posted before seeing all the comments.

  • Narkel says:

    Awesome that she likes Rooney Mara, can’t wait to see them together in the Malick film. If Nat would say Mia Wasikowska and Evan Rachel Wood I would have cried. XD

  • awiseone says:

    Yes Dazza I think that is the movie that made her a fan she loves “Super Bud” to the point that and even penned her own female version…Another hint was in one of Ben’s interviews he said he was was shown, Get Him To The Greek by “someone” and that he liked it but would have never seen it otherwise.

  • Jenski says:

    JONAH HILL?! IDEK what to think. Maybe it’s a guilty pleasure thing? Like her Julia Roberts love?

    I honestly thought it would be Fassbender. (And three guesses isn’t cheating!)

  • Dazza says:

    I don’t really think one has to feel guilty about liking Jonah anymore. He’s just come off an Oscar nomination and next up he’s starring in Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street.

  • PatrynXX says:

    only know Fassbender for 1. seems to be a good humorist full of muscles with his shirt off in 300 , but when his glasses on, he gives Keira Knightly one sore ass. Viggo’s okay. but someone is a sadist 🙂

  • awiseone says:

    There is no explaining appeal…We are Natalie fans but there are plenty of folks who can’t stand to look at her….Go Figure:)
