Archives For faces!

All the way back in September, I made a small list of some of my favorite actresses that people didn’t have idea who they were. But I don’t seem to have the same knack for spotting unknown names for male actors… funny, eh? I just realized this when making this list. Since most of the names are probably known, will post them from the ones I think are less known to the most known. And notice? No TV stars that I can recall~ WEIRD.

*EDIT*
How could I forget him??? Just added him on the first spot of actors that you probably don’t know.

Behold, us mere people. LOL’

TcCandler.com has released its list of the 100 most beautiful faces… female faces, just to make that clear. As past lists, the faces, the names, nationalities and everything is varied. And Natalie, my Natalie… she made it to Numero 1 this year, after being on the list for 11 years. So she’s actually been on the list since probably the release of Leon~~~ SNAP! These guys are good.

Rachel Weisz, who shares screen credit with Natalie on Wong Kar Wai’s My Blueberry Nights lands on #2 (after 13 years on the list), and Kate Beckinsale lands on numero 3 after 10 years on the list, and dropping from last year’s number 1 spot. My Marion (Cotillard, for those who don’t know) lands on Numero Quatre, after 7 years and dropping from #3 last year. And making it to the Top5 is Katharine McPhee who’s been on the list for 2 years.

Favorite names on the list?? Judy Greer, Rachel McAdams, Eva Green, Audrey Tautou, Ellen Page, Paz Vega, Krista Allen, Marley Shelton, Emilia Fox, Julianne Nicholson, Rachel Hurd Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Monica Bellucci, Kate Winslet, and Camilla Belle.

For my old list of Top10 Female Celeb Portraits, and Top10 Male.

There is only one thing to say… THANK YOU SO MUCH, Julz!!!!! I just got it in the mail today, and the post office almost spoiled it, because they were about to rip the wrapping to find out what it was! And I was like NO! Can’t you just read the invoice to see what’s inside, plus it’s a gift, you damn fuckers! LOL’ – They looked at me funny because you won’t believe how EXCITED I got when I knew. You could see it in my eyes, Julz – this has been the most surprising, bestest present like EVER… FOREVER AND EVER and always~~~

Hardcover books rock, photography rocks, celebrity portraits rock… so this gift effing rocks!! It’s got sooooo many photographs, and they are all neatly printed on nice paper. My dad even thought they might be real pictures pasted on the paper, haha. Big font for the content, so no need for eye-squinting… and the first chapter, if I read correctly – it’s written by Garbo’s great-nephew. I thought it was such a great read! Here’s an excerpt:

There is a lot about Greta Garbo I did not learn until after she passed away. Her last film was released in 1941, seventeen years before I was born. Until I was a teenager, she was just “Kata.” This was the nickname she was given as a child – after Swedish suffragette Kata Dalstrom – presumably for her strong will.

Kata was my great aunt. Of all my relatives, she was one of my favorites, beloved by my brothers and sisters as well. I remember the times we spent together with a smile. I recall her sidelong glances and her raised eyebrows as her stories were spun to the next level of impossibility. Kata had a great sense of humor, and there were always jokes when she was around. In New Jersey, we accompanied her on long walks and once built a bonfire that could be seen for several blocks. Kata taught me and my siblings how to do cartwheels. She was distressed that we had not learned to do them properly, and we spent a memorable afternoon refining our technique under her critical eye. Kata was an intriguing combination of seriousness and fun.

If you tend to watch a lot of TV and movies, and are good with faces and names, you begin noticing familiar faces throughout the years. It is then, by chance, that you suddenly discover that you have in fact been finding bright new talents… or hidden talents. You know their faces, you know where you’ve seen them, but you can’t quite get their names until you research, and never will it happen again.

I’ve been an avid procrastinator for the past 12 years of my life, ha! I’ve watched a lot of TV and movies (more in recent years), and I’ve found myself saying “Well, he/she looks awfully familiar. Haven’t I seen him/her somewhere before?” Yes, yes I have. And that gives me a fuzzy feeling… a fuzzy special something that makes me think I’ve got this tiny little treasure, and I saw it… sort of first.

So continuing with the previous post, here are the Top 10 guys. Now, remember… this doesn’t mean they are who I consider saliva-worthy. These photographs are based on availability on Flickr, as well as resolution, and other factors that allow these pictures to be in my Favorite list in my account.
