F – Famous Australian Movie Stars

Here are a few of my favorite famous Australians and the roles and quotes that featured their fabulousness.

  1. Cate Blanchett – Her oscar winning role in the Aviator as the amazing Katherine Hepburn.  Greatest line every, “Do your worst, Mr. Hughes.”
  2. Heath Ledger – William Thatcher in A Knight’s Tale, Ennis Del Mar in Broke Back Mountain.  All good choices, but I have to go with another Oscar winning performance; Joker in The Dark Knight.  Another great line, “If you’re good at something, never do it for free.”
  3. Hugh Jackman – Wolverine and the X-Men movies are good, but my absolute favorite movie of 2011 was Real Steel.  Totally shocker for me that a movie about robot was the most powerful, emotional, feel good and touching movie I have seen in a long time.  I actually cried.  Seriously, if you haven’t seen it.  Check it out.
  4. Russell Crowe – Begins and ends at Gladiator.  Oscar winning performance.  Absolute best line, “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius.  Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife.  And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
