I’m sure that many of you had very productive mornings, and did very important things. I, on the other hand, spent mine scanning hundreds of interviews online of various actors to discover what their favorite movie is? Why? Beats the hell out of me. I felt like it, OK? You have your hobbies, and I have mine. You don’t have to make a federal case of out it. GOD.

Most actors, at some point, are asked this question in an interview, so I decided to compile the answers of 20 Pajiba favorites. In some instances, more than one movie was listed, but for the sake of brevity, I included only the one named movie that I liked to associate with that actor the most. However, I did make an exception for one: Jon Hamm, because all three of his favorite movies were too fun not to mention.

Tom Hiddleston — Heat

Michael Fassbender — Big Lebowski

George Clooney — All the President’s Men

Seth Rogen — Big Lebowski

Anna Kendrick — Wet Hot American Summer

Idris Elba — The Champ

Benedict Cumberbatch — Withnail and I

Jennifer Lawrence — I Heart Huckabees

Donald Glover — Back to the Future


Chris Hemsworth - Neverending Story

Natalie Portman — Dirty Dancing

Mary Louise Parker — Meet Me in St. Louis

Alison Brie — Almost Famous


Emma Stone — Harold and Maude

Ryan Reynolds — Being There

Ryan Gosling — East of Eden

Timothy Olyphant — Blue Velvet


James McAvoy — Back to the Future

Joel McHale — Children of Men

Jon Hamm — Breakin’, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo and Krush Groove
