Forbes have put together another list (they love lists even more than I do) and this time they’ve polled industry people to rate the bankability of 1400 actors. The specific factors considered can be seen after the click but cutting to the chase, Will Smith is comfortably atop the list and Natalie came in at #84 with a score of 7.27

You can’t view the full list but you can search for actors to see their position and score. I tried a number of other young actresses to compare and found that Lohan, Ellen Page, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Emily Blunt and Rachel McAdams are all quite a bit further down the list. Anne Hathaway has the exact same score. Scarlett is at #78 and Keira Knightley is way up the list at #42.

Anyone else I should be checking? You can do your own searches here.

Both are known for memorable visuals, so imagine what the talents would conjure together! And I’m all for Natalie Portman as the lead.

The other link is a bit more skeptical.
