Disappointed to see no Anthony Hopkins! His preforming in silence of the lambs and West world are exceptional
Most Iconic: 1. Brando and IF Chaplin can be counted as an American, then Chaplin 2. Pacino 3. deNiro 4. Nicholson 5. Eastwood Best Actors: 1. Nicholson - he has done the most taxing and difficult yet captivating roles ever 2. Lewis - he becomes what he portrays 3. Pacino - he has played the most unpredictable yet subtle characters 4. deNiro - he acts as if he is just talking to the camera, like giving an interview 5. Brando - his charisma and his highly polished acting skills blend to give you a rarity *However since 2000 no one comes close to diCaprio for the top spot both in terms of acting and charisma, so he may end up being at the top of both the lists in coming 15-20 years or so*

sebastian alegria (2 months ago)
For me the most iconic actor is Marlon Brando, method actor, he used to improvise his dialogues, a great influence for people like Al Pacino or De Niro, these days there no one like Brando
Troyee Tanu Dutta (2 months ago)
The list is near perfect, but please drop Tom Cruise and bring in Daniel Day Lewis or Tom Hanks into the list. Daniel Day Lewis has three Oscar wins and three Oscar nominations.

Dear all pacino fans, 1970s taxi driver, the deer Hunter, the godfather part 2 , 1980s the raging bull, once upon a time in America, 1990s the goodfellas, casino and heat are the movies which makes Robert De niro more better than Al pacino. Where pacino made very small amount of decade defining movies than De niro. And after all De niro won 2 academy award for best actor in the raging bull and best supporting actor in the godfather part 2 where Pacino won only 1 academy award for best actor in the scent of a woman, which is still an overwhelming Oscar winner where Denzel Washington have one of the best performance Malcom X.

How on earth is Tom Hanks not on the list?!
grey wolf (3 months ago)
DiCaprio and Hardy are the best two actors right now and have been for at least the past 5 - 6 years. You just can't match the realism of their work. They bring you in and make you feel the story, of which they are portraying, like it is your own. It takes a really special actor or actress to bring you in like that. Top 5 ( no specific order) Marlon Brando Robert De Niro Al Pacino Leonardo DiCaprio Tom Hardy Two honorable mentions are two guys who each, are both in a league of their own Now when I say league of their own, it's not that I'm saying they are better than anybody in particular, it's just that they and they only can play their parts. Tom Hanks Jack Nicholson

What’s this rank based on? Is it just me or is John Wayne always John Wayne, Tom Hanks is always Tom Hanks, cruise is always cruise. No one ever votes in Gary Oldman. The man was Vald in Dracula, Drexl in true romance, Zorg in the fifth. What’s the guy gotta do?
