Top Ten Male Actors
as of 2013

The following 10 male actors are the best working in Hollywood today, in my opinion. I’ve tried to nail this list down many times, in many different years, and every year it changes. That’s why I’m stating that this list is for 2013, by next year it could easily change, and it probably will.
Also, When I say Favorite movies, it doesn’t always mean I liked the movie, I just liked what the actor brought to the film.
Top Ten Female Actors is coming soon!
