Laura Linney, a perfectly acceptable three star actress...
That's the assertion I'm building this post on. Let's forget individual best lists for awhile and start making larger categories. Four star, three star, two star, one star, etc. actors and actresses...
Who is rated (perfectly in tune with their critical legacy)? Who is overrated? Who is underrated? How do you choose?
DeNiro, Brando, Streep, Hepburn, Stewart
Bale, Crowe, Linney, Depp, Winslett, Kilmer (underrated in my book)
Wayne, Pitt, Clooney, Portman, Johannson (overrated in my book)
Keanu Reeves, Diaz, Roberts
LeBlanc, Alba, Van Damme
