Live Poll: Actors Who Used Method Acting

Method acting — a controversial acting approach that has been highly discussed in Hollywood for decades. By definition, it’s an acting technique when an actor aspires to complete emotional identification with a role or character for a project. But throughout the years, it has been a divisive topic with industry veterans on either side of the debate.

The Hollywood Reporter has compiled a list of actors and actresses who have taken on the immersive acting approach at some point during their career.

Actors who committed to method acting for a role in the past, which of these performances do you think is the most successful application of the method?

Some of these actors' performance were great. But, ultimately, I think the method is stupid. Very often it is only a marketing stunt. Jared Leto's "method acting" is only an excuse to be a douchebag.

And the association that has been made between whatever these actors are doing, Lee Strasberg, and the actors' studio is really stupid. As far as I know, I could be wrong, Stanislavski's method is about crafting a character by using one's own life experience. It is not about sending rat to Margot Robbie or losing 50 pounds.

Two things I think could be useful are:

A. Mike Leigh's improvising method he uses with actors.

B. Using non-professional actors because professional actors are annoying and paid too much.

@khadafimahfud8 ,

The current title for your poll suggestion is ungrammatical.

Please change the title from:

Actors Who Committed to Method Acting

To:

Actors Who Are Committed to Method Acting
or
Actors Committed to Method Acting

You should change it back since the article and list are not about actors who are committed to method acting, but actors who committed to method acting for a role in the past.

Better, simpler phrasing of the question:

Which of these performances do you think is the most successful application of the method?

The Poll Admin Tool is reporting a DATABASE_ERROR for your poll. This is usually caused by long text in the description fields.

These two choices are the most likely causes, even though we do not know for certain:

We noticed that you removed all of the descriptions for each choice. I was able to push your poll.

Several of the images have two actors attributed to the stillframe. Shouldn't you have actual text written out for each option indicating which of the two actors the question is pertaining to?
