I'm seriously crushing on Christian Bale right now and just love David Tennant.

Tom Hanks--hands down; I'll watch anything with Tom Hanks in it--even Joe & the Volcano.

For looks, though, it's Mark Harmon. But, Jo, that guy from Sleepy Hollow?? Where's my fainting couch? Unfortunately, he makes me feel like a dirty old lady.

I think Emma Thompson is my favorite actress.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Right now, for now, it's still Kevin Conroy. His voice, sigh… I really don't care that he's had really only one role for the past 20 years, he's just so amazing at that one role! And hilarious as heck in interviews! And any celebrity who goes to work in a relief kitchen without bragging about it, well they have my respect.

For the longest time my favorite actress was Natalie Portman, until certain things that paparazzi reported on. Still trying to find another favorite actress. Maybe Eliza Dushku.

I agree with Sad in AZ, it's Tom Hanks. If someday he has a scandal or acts like a jackass, I'll be disappointed because not only as an actor, I like him and the way he presents himself.

Also Matthew McConaughey, he's made some smart movie choices and turned his career in a new direction. He's been impressive in his latest movies.

Chris O'Dowd because he's just adorable.

For an actress, it's harder to choose. I think Emma Thompson is at the top of my list right now.

A lot of good ones...I always liked Kurt Russell. Michael Caine and Robert Duvall are great together. As for actresses, the only one that comes to mind is Andy McDowell.

Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis.
Actress: Probably Meryl Streep. She's ridiculously talented, but whenever I see her on Letterman or Kimmel or something she always seems really chill and laid back, like she doesn't take herself too seriously.
