19 Stars We'd Watch in Anything

by at .  Updated at . Comments

There are only a handful of actors and actresses making movies today that have us buying a ticket as long as their name is on the marquee. 

These 19 performers elevate even mundane material and make it something special, simply because of their gifts. 

Click through and discover who made the list of our 19 stars who we would watch in anything. 

1. Daniel Day Lewis

Daniel Day Lewis
Daniel Day Lewis is a modern acting chameleon. There is nothing he can't do and evidence of that was recently seen in his Oscar-winning turn as our most popular president, Abraham Lincoln. He can play villain (Gangs of New York, There Will Be Blood) and he can play heroic (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father). It doesn't matter what side of the moral coin he's on, we're there -- front & center.

2. Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep didn't become the most nominated actress in Oscar history because she doesn't bring the goods! She takes even the most average movie (August: Osage County) and makes it a must-see.

3. Denzel Washington

Denzel Washington
Really, what more needs to be said other than "starring Denzel Washington" and you know you are in for a treat?!

4. Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling
Besides his searing good looks, Ryan Gosling has the type of supreme acting talent that directors and fellow performers kill to work with. Whether in Drive or Gangster Squad, if Gosling is in it -- there's got to be something redeemable about it

5. Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet has kind of quietly become one of those actresses that commands our attention. Sure, she made a huge splash with Titanic. But since then, she has chosen roles in movies big and small that are required viewing for anyone who considers themselves a movie fanatic.

6. Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen
Because Viggo Mortensen doesn't make many movies, our passion is almost even more feverish for a film if he's in it. Think about it... Can you imagine any movie he is in with someone else in the role? Didn't think so.
