Question 1 of 10
1. This southern actress got her big break in the 1988 movie "Mystic Pizza." She would go on to become one of the most well-known actresses of her generation, picking up her first Academy Award along the way. Other movies this actress has starred in include "Steel Magnolias" (1989), "I Love Trouble" (1994), "The Mexican" (2001) and "Closer" (2004). One movie she may not brag about is 1996's "Mary Reilly" in which she played a housemaid who fell in love with Dr. Jekyll. Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. This actress has starred and/or appeared in over fifty movies, many of which were made-for-TV. Most of her roles are of an eclectic variety, from darker movies such as 1996's "Mary Reilly" and 1987's "Fatal Attraction", to movies aimed more towards children, such as 1996's "101 Dalmatians" as well as its sequel. Also on this actress's resume are many action movies such as 1996's "Mars Attacks!" and 1997's "Air Force One". Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. This English actor has had much success with a variety of movie roles dating back to 1982. Many feel that this actor shines the brightest when playing the villain, such as in 1997's "Air Force One", "The Fifth Element" (also released in 1997) and 1994's "Léon". He has, however, played his share of good guys to include his roles in 2004's "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and 2005's "Batman Begins". Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. Before making it big in the film industry, this Irish actor worked as a forklift operator, truck driver and an amatuer boxer, among other things. He appeared in numerous films as well as on Broadway. Judging from past roles, it appears that this actor enjoys playing the mentor/trainer/father figure to younger men. This is apparent in such films as 2005's "Batman Begins", 2002's "Gangs of New York" and 1999's "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace". He has also played a variety of real-life people in title roles such as 1993's "Schindler's List", 1995's "Rob Roy", 1996's "Michael Collins" and 2004's "Kinsey". Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. This actor has made a name for himself with many dark, offbeat roles. He played strong supporting characters in movies such as 2004's "Kinsey" and in the same year, "Garden State". He has played diverse roles ranging from a Russian nuclear reactor officer to a drug addict. He has thrilled critics with impressionable performances in movies such as 2003's "The Shattered Glass", which earned him the prestigious National Society of Film Critics Award. Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. This young, Canadian-born actor started his career at the age of thirteen starring in several TV dramas. His big break came in the Fox Family network's "Higher Ground" (2000). He then landed supporting roles in films such as 1999's "Free Fall" and, in the same year, "The Virgin Suicides" and 2003's "Shattered Glass". Worldwide fame would be reached after landing a much sought after part in 2002's "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones", landing the role from over 400 candidates. Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Despite not having the classic, Hollywood good looks, this New Jersey born actor has become known as a most versatile character actor. After a discouraging first attempt in film (1970's "Dreams of Glass"), he turned to the stage, starring in a play that would ultimately open the door to return to film; "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". After reprising his stage role as Martini in the critically acclaimed film, this actor would go on to land the role of one of TV's most memorable and reviled characters of all time. His role in "Taxi" (1978-1983) earned him an Emmy Award. He maintained his status as a great character actor in films such as 1984's "Romancing the Stone", 1992's "Batman Returns", 1995's "Get Shorty" and 1996's "Mars Attacks!" He has also appeared in films such as 1999's "The Virgin Suicides", 2003's "Big Fish" and 2005's "Be Cool." Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. Considered one of the most critically acclaimed actors of his generation, this Scottish actor's first notable role was in 1994's "Shallow Grave", though he wouldn't be brought to the public's full attention until 1997's "Trainspotting". Known for taking on artistic and independent film roles, he surprised many fans with the decision to take on a lead role in 1999's "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace". He continued to show his diversity as an actor in movies such as 2001's "Moulin Rouge!" in which he also proved he had singing talent. Other movies under his belt include 2001's "Black Hawk Down", 2003's "Down With Love" and "Big Fish" (also released in 2003) as well as Episodes II and III of "Star Wars". Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. This Texas native began in her film career with small roles in the movies "Reality Bites" (1994) and "Empire Records" (1995). Her big break came in the 1996 blockbuster "Jerry Maguire" in a starring role opposite Tom Cruise. While she did appear in a number of movies that were forgotten soon after they were seen (1999's "The Bachelor", 2002's "White Oleander" and 2003's "Down With Love"), she managed to grab the attention of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, picking up three Oscar nominations in three years. The third time proved to be the charm. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2004 for "Cold Mountain" (2003). Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. Have you figured out who my favorite actress is yet? I've already mentioned many of her film roles as well as nine of her co-stars but here are some more clues to help you out. Born in Israel, she made her acting debut at the age of twelve in a powerful role opposite Jean Reno. This caused problems for her and her family as it was such a mature part for someone so young. That would be the nature of many of the roles she took. A Harvard University graduate (she studied psychology), she also trained in jazz, ballet and tap dancing. In addition to English, she speaks Hebrew and some French, German, Japanese and Spanish. Devoted to her movie roles, she has learned to play the piano, speak with a British accent, and completely shaved her head.

One movie she may not brag about is 1996's "Mary Reilly" in which she played a housemaid who fell in love with Dr. Jekyll.

Answer: Julia Roberts

Julia Fiona Roberts, born in Smyrna, Georgia, has appeared in over thirty films spanning about twenty years worth of acting. She starred in 2004's "Closer" with Natalie Portman. In 2001, she won the Oscar as Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of the real-life "Erin Brockovich".

She was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for 1990's "Pretty Woman" and Best Actress in a Supporting Role for 1989's "Steel Magnolias". Roberts earned $25 million for her role in 2003's "Mona Lisa Smile".

In 2004, Roberts took a break from her acting career to give birth to twins, Hazel and Phinnaeus.
2. This actress has starred and/or appeared in over fifty movies, many of which were made-for-TV. Most of her roles are of an eclectic variety, from darker movies such as 1996's "Mary Reilly" and 1987's "Fatal Attraction", to movies aimed more towards children, such as 1996's "101 Dalmatians" as well as its sequel. Also on this actress's resume are many action movies such as 1996's "Mars Attacks!" and 1997's "Air Force One".

Answer: Glenn Close

Glenn Close was born in Greenwich, Connecticut and has had a very successful film and theater career. Her performance as Alex Forrest in 1987's "Fatal Attraction" was ranked as #36 in "Premiere Magazine's" list of 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.

She appeared in 1996's "Mars Attacks!" with Natalie Portman and Jack Nicholson. Glenn Close has had several nominations for the Academy Award. They include Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominations for 1982's "The World According to Garp", 1983's "The Big Chill" and 1984's "The Natural".

The other two nominations were for Best Actress in a Leading Role; 1987's "Fatal Attraction" and 1988's "Dangerous Liaisons".
3. This English actor has had much success with a variety of movie roles dating back to 1982. Many feel that this actor shines the brightest when playing the villain, such as in 1997's "Air Force One", "The Fifth Element" (also released in 1997) and 1994's "Léon". He has, however, played his share of good guys to include his roles in 2004's "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and 2005's "Batman Begins".

Answer: Gary Oldman

Gary Oldman, born March 21, 1958, started his career in theater and then made the leap to films. Though not the ideal leading man, Oldman's ability and willingness to change himself physically, as well as his command of all types of accents, allowed him to take on a broad range of roles.

It's very unlikely that viewers will see Oldman play the same character twice (unless, of course, it's in a sequel). He portrayed a dirty cop seeking vengence in 1994's "Léon" which starred Natalie Portman in her breakout role. Oldman received a BAFTA nomination in 1988 for Best Actor for 1987's "Prick Up Your Ears".
4. Before making it big in the film industry, this Irish actor worked as a forklift operator, truck driver and an amatuer boxer, among other things.

He has also played a variety of real-life people in title roles such as 1993's "Schindler's List", 1995's "Rob Roy", 1996's "Michael Collins" and 2004's "Kinsey".

Answer: Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson's first leading role came in 1990 when he appeared in "Darkman" and some argue that true success did not come until he landed the role of Oskar Schindler in 1993's "Schindler's List". For this role, Neeson was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role. Since then he's had a steady career of blockbuster movies including 1999's "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace" co-starring Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor, 2003's "Love Actually" and 2005's "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" in which he voiced the lion, Aslan.
5. This actor has made a name for himself with many dark, offbeat roles. He played strong supporting characters in movies such as 2004's "Kinsey" and in the same year, "Garden State". He has played diverse roles ranging from a Russian nuclear reactor officer to a drug addict. He has thrilled critics with impressionable performances in movies such as 2003's "The Shattered Glass", which earned him the prestigious National Society of Film Critics Award.

Answer: Peter Sarsgaard

Peter Sarsgaard, born in Illinois, has made his mark in the movie industry. He made his screen debut in 1995's "Dead Man Walking". After a few bigger roles, Sarsgaard turned to the arthouse circuit and co-starred in 1999's "Boys Don't Cry" with Hilary Swank. He was praised for his performance in 2004's "Garden State" starring Zach Braff and Natalie Portman.
6. This young, Canadian-born actor started his career at the age of thirteen starring in several TV dramas. His big break came in the Fox Family network's "Higher Ground" (2000). He then landed supporting roles in films such as 1999's "Free Fall" and, in the same year, "The Virgin Suicides" and 2003's "Shattered Glass". Worldwide fame would be reached after landing a much sought after part in 2002's "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones", landing the role from over 400 candidates.

Answer: Hayden Christensen

Hayden Christensen, born April 19th, 1981 in Vancouver, British Columbia, not only has the handsome looks of a movie star (he was named one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in 2002 by People magazine), but he's proved more than once that he has true acting talent and is capable of starring alongside Hollywood's bigger names.

In 1999, Christensen appeared in "The Virgin Suicides" with James Woods, Kathleen Turner, Kirsten Dunst and Danny DeVito. Christensen earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in 2001's "Life As A House" and won Breakthrough Performance of the Year from the National Board of Review. Commercial success soon followed with the role of Anakin Skywalker in George Lucas's "Star Wars" franchise. Christensen starred in Episodes II and III of the lucrative series and picked up an MTV Movie Award for Best Villain in "Revenge of the Sith". Chemistry between him and Natalie Portman earned them a nomination at the Teen Choice Awards.
7. Despite not having the classic, Hollywood good looks, this New Jersey born actor has become known as a most versatile character actor. After a discouraging first attempt in film (1970's "Dreams of Glass"), he turned to the stage, starring in a play that would ultimately open the door to return to film; "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". After reprising his stage role as Martini in the critically acclaimed film, this actor would go on to land the role of one of TV's most memorable and reviled characters of all time.

He has also appeared in films such as 1999's "The Virgin Suicides", 2003's "Big Fish" and 2005's "Be Cool."

Answer: Danny DeVito

Daniel Michael DeVito, Jr., born in Neptune, New Jersey in 1944, won the 1981 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Variety or Music Series. Although he had already landed roles in many movies prior to "Taxi", this show (which ran from 1978 to 1983) was considered his "breakthrough" role.

In 1989, DeVito was named the "Male Star of the Year" at the ShoWest Convention. Success came not only on the screen, but behind the camera as well. DeVito directed numerous movies including 1987's "Throw Momma From the Train", 1996's "Matilda" and 2003's "Duplex".

As a producer, DeVito picked up an Academy Award nomination in 2001 for Best Picture for his work with Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher on "Erin Brockovich". Proving that he's still got what it takes, DeVito has starred alongside with many younger actors and actresses such as Natalie Portman (1996's "Mars Attacks!), Kirsten Dunst and Hayden Christensen (1999's "The Virgin Suicides"), Christina Ricci and Jason Biggs (2003's "Anything Else") and Ewan McGregor (2003's "Big Fish").
8. Considered one of the most critically acclaimed actors of his generation, this Scottish actor's first notable role was in 1994's "Shallow Grave", though he wouldn't be brought to the public's full attention until 1997's "Trainspotting".

He continued to show his diversity as an actor in movies such as 2001's "Moulin Rouge!" in which he also proved he had singing talent. Other movies under his belt include 2001's "Black Hawk Down", 2003's "Down With Love" and "Big Fish" (also released in 2003) as well as Episodes II and III of "Star Wars".

Answer: Ewan McGregor

Ewan Gordon McGregor, born March 31, 1971, made his film debut in 1993's "Being Human" which starred Robin Williams. He has never been afraid to push the limit as far as choosing film roles. Many audiences have seen everything McGregor has to offer in movies such as the erotic 1996 film "The Pillow Book".

Despite a relatively short list of film credits, McGregor has shared the screen with many accredited thespians. He starred alongside Cameron Diaz and Holly Hunter in 1997's "A Life Less Ordinary", Michael Caine in 1998's "Little Voice", Natalie Portman and Liam Neeson in 1999's "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" and Nicole Kidman in 2001's "Moulin Rouge!" McGregor was ranked #36 in Empire Magazine's list of "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" and was ranked #9 in Channel 4's "Greatest Movie Stars of All Time" list.

He was named the Actor of the Year at the 2001 Hollywood Film Festival and won numerous awards for his role as Christian in "Moulin Rouge!" Those awards include the 2002 Empire Award for Best British Actor (his fourth), the ALFS Award for British Actor of the Year at the 2002 London Critics Circle Film Awards (his second), an MTV Movie Award in 2002 for Best Musical Sequence and the Golden Satellite Award at the 2002 Satellite Awards for Best Actor.
9. This Texas native began in her film career with small roles in the movies "Reality Bites" (1994) and "Empire Records" (1995). Her big break came in the 1996 blockbuster "Jerry Maguire" in a starring role opposite Tom Cruise. While she did appear in a number of movies that were forgotten soon after they were seen (1999's "The Bachelor", 2002's "White Oleander" and 2003's "Down With Love"), she managed to grab the attention of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, picking up three Oscar nominations in three years. The third time proved to be the charm. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2004 for "Cold Mountain" (2003).

Answer: Renee Zellweger

Renée Kathleen Zellweger was born on April 25, 1969 in Katy, Texas. She became interested in acting during her high school years and while at the University of Texas, she took an acting class. Instead of moving to Hollywood to break into the business, she opted to stay in Texas and audition for roles around Houston.

After small roles in films, she met Matthew McConaughey and worked with him on the 1994 movie "Love and a .45" which earned her enough critical praise for her to decide to move to Los Angeles.

Her first Academy Award nomination was in 2002 for Best Actress in a Leading Role for 2001's "Bridget Jones's Diary" and she was nominated in the same category in 2003 for her role as Roxie Hart in 2002's "Chicago". Her first Academy Award was in the category for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for 2003's "Cold Mountain" in which she starred with Jude Law (who was nominated for his lead role), Nicole Kidman, Brendan Gleeson, Natalie Portman, Giovanni Ribisi, Donald Sutherland and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
10. Have you figured out who my favorite actress is yet? I've already mentioned many of her film roles as well as nine of her co-stars but here are some more clues to help you out. Born in Israel, she made her acting debut at the age of twelve in a powerful role opposite Jean Reno. This caused problems for her and her family as it was such a mature part for someone so young. That would be the nature of many of the roles she took. A Harvard University graduate (she studied psychology), she also trained in jazz, ballet and tap dancing. In addition to English, she speaks Hebrew and some French, German, Japanese and Spanish. Devoted to her movie roles, she has learned to play the piano, speak with a British accent, and completely shaved her head.

Answer: Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman was born Natalie Hershlag on June 9, 1981 in Jerusalem, Israel. Her family soon moved to Washington, D.C. and then onto New York by the time Natalie was three years old. After some modeling and live performances, she landed the role of Mathilda in 1994's "Léon" opposite Jean Reno and Gary Oldman (released in the US as "The Professional"). Portman then appeared with film greats such as Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro (1995's "Heat"), Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close and Danny DeVito (1996's "Mars Attacks!"). Worldwide fame was achieved when she landed the part of Queen Amidala in the 1999 blockbuster prequel "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace", a role she reprised in Episodes II and III, starring along with Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Liam Neeson and Samuel L. Jackson.

She played the daughter of Susan Sarandon in "Anywhere But Here" (1999), at Sarandon's request. "Where The Heart Is" (2000) found Portman pregnant and living in Wal-Mart, while 2003's "Cold Mountain" placed her in the shadows of Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger and Jude Law. Zach Braff's 2004 independent movie "Garden State" had a character, Sam, written with Portman in mind, though Braff never dreamed she would accept the part.

She did agree, however, and starred with Braff, Peter Sarsgaard and Iam Holm. Portman's first Academy Award nomination (for Best Actress in a Supporting Role) was for 2004's "Closer" which also starred Julia Roberts, Jude Law and Clive Owen (also nominated). She didn't win the Oscar, but did pick up a Golden Globe for the performance.
