George Clooney comes 6th in "America's favorite actor" poll

Post by Katiedot on Sat Jan 21 2012, 11:33

From Huffington Post

As if box office returns weren't indicator enough, a new survey has revealed that Johnny Depp is America's favorite actor.

The Oscar-nominated "Pirates of the Caribbean" star topped the annual Harris Poll, which surveyed 2,237 adults online for a week in early December. It's the second year in a row that Depp has finished on top of the survey. Placing in second in the poll was Denzel Washington -- he also retained his place in the standings -- and tying with him was Clint Eastwood, who hasn't acted in a film since 2008's "Grand Torino," instead concentrating on directing.

Tom Hanks and John Wayne -- yes, that John Wayne -- rounded out the top five.

Depp has consistently proven to be both a favorite of indie filmgoers and one of Hollywood's biggest draws. His general audience pleasing Disney blockbusters, such as "Alice in Wonderland," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Pirates" films consistently pulled in between $250 and $500 million (with a high of $513 million) domestically, though his most recent "Pirates" flick, "On Stranger Tides," slumped to a franchise low of $237 million. His Hunter S. Thompson adaptation "The Rum Diary," his second film playing the famed gonzo journalist, was a major disappointment, earning just $13 million in America.

Washington did not appear in a movie this year, while Eastwood directed the disappointing "J. Edgar." Hanks directed the maligned "Larry Crowne" and starred in "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," which is only now being seen by wide audiences.

Here's the full list:

1. Johnny Depp

2. Clint Eastwood (tie)

2. Denzel Washington (tie)

4. Tom Hanks

5. John Wayne

6. George Clooney

7. Sandra Bullock

8. Harrison Ford

9. Will Smith

10. Adam Sander

MVHO: The inclusion of Adam Sandler in a list of the top ten American actors automatically voids the results of this survey.

And explains an awful lot about the state of this country. Sad

Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last

I think the survey skews itself a little bit. When asked who their favorite "actor" is, I think most people would automatically think "male". If it had been phrased as "favorite actor or actress" or "favorite film performer", we might have seen more women.

It is funny Meryl isn't on there and yes they probably thought they meant male only. Adam Sandler is a joke they must off asked young boys. Nice to see John Wayne on there he is an old favourite I grew up with a mother who had a major crush on him I'm surprised she didn't name any of my brothers Marion! LOL
