Al Pacino has been voted the greatest movie star of all time by the British public. But what about the list?
I was very surprised by such people as Robert Downey Jr and Winona Ryder in it. And Kate Winslet came in No. 55. Above Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Vivien Leigh. And what has she done? Titanic? Quills?
Apparently, Audrey Hepburn is the greatest actress of all time, only coming in at No 13.
Michael Douglas has beaten his own father coming in at No. 100, as Kirk Douglas wasn't even in the list at all!
People have questioned why such people as Laurence Olivier, Alec Guinness and John Gielgud are not in it but this is who the British public voted for, and really it's not about the acting, it's about the movie star quality of these people.
It was an entertaining show to watch though I do wonder why they concentrate on how dodgy these people's private lives are (Hugh Grant for example). Well done, Mr. Pacino.
