Actors of Action and Adventure Movies---My 5 Favorites

1.      Bruce Willis--- (Walter Bruce Willis) was born in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany on March 19, 1955. Bruce has been one of my favorite action heroes since Die Hard in 1988 as Officer John McClane. He had my attention from the very first of his Die Hard Movies—I love them all, and I adore his facetious remarks and his rough-edge character that is not afraid to force his acting to the limits of justice. Every Christmas I put my Die Hard DVD on---(I wore out the video of Die Hard)---and I am happy to watch Bruce in action. But I always want him to stop and take a shower---how does he stand being that  bloody and dirty in these films is beyond me.

My favorite movies of his are: Die Hard

Die Hard 2
Die Hard with a Vengeance
Live Free or Die Hard
 and now A Good Day to Die Hard which will open in 2013.

Antonio Banderas--- (Jose’ Antonio Dominguez Banderas) A Spanish film actor who was born in Malaga, Malaga, and AndalucĂ­a, Spain on August 10, 1960. My favorite movies of his are: My Mom’s New Boyfriend
The Mask of Zorro

Antonio can play a mean killer who will not give in until the job is done. And he can play a lover whose eyes, voice and how he handles himself can melt the film in a movie.
Antonio has a new film coming out in May 2013  titled: 33 dias it is about Pablo Picasso's turmoil and relationship with an artist. Look for it in 2012.

Russell Crowe--- (Russell Ira Crowe) A New Zealand- Australian actor. He was born in Wellington, New Zealand on April 7, 1964. Russell is one of the most talented actors of our time as he can play action characters from fighting with a sword to using a piece of chalk in a beautiful mind. I love his voice and his looks of either hate or love. He is a strong actor and will be one of my favorite forever.

My favorite movies of his--- so far are:
Proof of Life
L.A. Confidential
Mystery, Alaska
Cinderella Man
 Russell Crowe's Latest Movie "Les Miserables"  will open in theaters on Christmas Day
             Decembers 25th 2012.
Matt Damon--- (Matthew Paige “Matt” Damon) is an America actor who was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on October 8, 1970. He is such an excellent actor and so handsome when he smiles, it will take your breath away. I applauded his political voice and how he speaks out about his opinions.  But I like his action movies the best. My favorites are:
       Ocean’s Eleven
       The Bourne Identity
       The Bourne Supremacy
       The Bourne Ultimatum

       The Departed
Matt's latest film "Promised Land" will be in theaters January 4, 2013.
Mark Wahlberg--- (Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg) an American actor born in Dorchester, Boston on June 5, 1971. He is one of the most revered actors in Hollywood today.  His brute force and muscular body is something to be dealt with as his characters become so real one has to be reminded---this is only a movie. Some of my favorite movies are:
The Departed

The Fighter
The Perfect Storm

Action and Adventure Actresses---5 of My Favorites

1.      Pamela Suzette Grier---An American Actress of Stage, Screen, Television and a backup singer. She was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on May 26th 1949. She is a beautiful woman and a multi-talented actress who has 95 plus titles to her name. Pam is still actively working and has several films in her future already in pre-production and more rumored. This lady can light up the screen with her action and adventures.
My favorite movie was “Above the Law” she played Steven Seagal’s partner. It was an action packed movie and I still have the DVD which I am proud to own.

Pam two earliest movies in 1971 were---Women in Cages and The Big Doll House; both were filmed in the Philippines. While there she was stricken with a fatal tropical illness and almost expired. It took Pam almost a year to recover. 

She lost all her hair and was briefly blind for a month. What a terrible start to a career but for a strong lady she triumphed. Pam is also a cancer survivor after being diagnosed in 1988---and she overcame again.

 I wish this strong and talented lady a beautiful life of happiness and more success.

2.       Sigourney Weaver---Susan Alexandra Weaver is an American Actress. She was born in Manhattan October 8th 1949. She is a beautiful 6’ tall lady who is better known to her fans as Ellen Ripley in her four Alien films. Films I had to watch although they gave me nightmares.
Her mother Elizabeth Inglis was a British Actress--- one of the most promising from her native land. However, she gave up her glowing career for her family. Her father Sylvester Weaver was an icon of television producers. He is credited with early morning and late night television that we all enjoy today.

 3.      Geena Davis---Virginia Elizabeth Davis is an American Actress. She was born in Wareham, Massachusetts on January 21, 1956. She is a beautiful 6’ tall lady who is also a film producer, writer, television and a model for---Victoria Secret’s Catalogue. Because of her modeling she landed her first movie in 1982---Tootsie-- after Sydney Pollack spotted her in Victoria Secret’s Catalogue.

And her career began with a flying start with an added great honor in 1999; Geena was positioned 24th of the 28th Semi-finalist for the Olympic Archery Team.

4.  Jennifer Garner---Jennifer Anne Garner is an American Actress, who also does Celebrity Advertising and she is a Film Producer. She was born April 17th 1972 in Houston Texas. Jennifer is 5’8” of a beautiful woman who has the best dimples in Hollywood. When she smiles at a man he cannot take his eyes off her. Action and adventure is this actress’ distinctive characteristic.

She was reared in West Virginia by her father Bill---a former Chemical Engineer and her mother Pat---an English Teacher.Although she began her career in 1995 with the movie Zoya---she is better known for the TV series---Alias which was very popular for five years.

Jennifer is still very active in movies and has 42 Titles to her name. However, the greatest title is being a mommy to three children---two girls and a boy.
She is married to the handsome Ben Affleck who is an actor, producer, film director, write and best of all a daddy to their children.

5.  Angelia Jolie---Angelia Jolie Voight is an American Actress, producer and director. She was born June 4, 1975 to actor Oscar winning actor--Jon Voight and mother--- Marcheline Bertrand. Angeline Jolie has won many awards and she is on many magazines as one of the most beautiful women.

However, she is also beautiful on the inside with a heart as big as she is---she has spent many hours and her own money helping people and especially children. That alone makes her beautiful to me as outer beauty fades---but inner-beauty is forever. She was appointed as the Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

One of my favorite movies was---The Bone Collector which she became well known after playing with Denzel Washington in 1999. And then in the action movies I love of the Lara Croft series---Tomb Raider and then Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. Making these some of the greatest action and adventure movies we have today.

Then in 2004 she co-starred in Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt who is now the love of her life. They have three children and three adopted children together.  They are a big happy family.
I wish them all the happiness in the world. And I hope you enjoyed reading about my action and adventure actresses---5 of my favorites.
