Dan Gertler Reviews: Charlize Theron

Actress and philanthropist Charlize Theron was born on 7 August, 1975 in Benoni, the Transvaal Province of South Africa. Following a traumatic childhood that included her mother shooting her father to death out of self-defense, Theron moved to Milan at 16 to work as a model. After a year of touring through Europe, Charlize moved…

Dan Gertler Reviews: Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie, known for her movie roles as much as for her beauty, humanitarian activities, and her relationship with Brad Pitt, is one of my favorite Hollywood actresses. With such a blooming acting career (which also includes her earning the highest pay among Hollywood actresses) it is hard to believe she has only been with…

Dan Gertler Reviews: Ben Affleck

While many actors and actresses try their luck with filmmaking after establishing a successful acting career, Ben Affleck seems to me the only one who was actually born to do both. From his acting and directing career to his personal humanitarian activities in the Congo area, here’s why Affleck deserves your attention. Affleck was born…

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper is one of those Hollywood actors that transformed his acting niche. In Cooper’s case, this means a change from a sloppy supporting actor in films like The Hangover to a serious leading star in films like American Sniper, Silver Lining Playbook, and more. Luckily for us, he is young enough to still live…

Brad Pitt

If I had to make a list of the best actors of our time Brad Pitt would definitely be among the first. Born on December 18, 1963, Pitt’s acting career started in television but he very quickly moved to the big screen, where, luckily for us, he found his true calling. His first memorable performance…

Al Pacino

Before I embark on this ambitious journey to relate to you Al Pacino’s greatness in just a few words, I’d like to point out that he is perhaps the most honored, if not loved, actor ever to perform on stage and screen. At 75 years old, the man is a living legend. Through his acting…

Uma Thurman

It’s true that I have a special place in my heart reserved for actors known for their roles in Tarantino’s films, but Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction are far from being the only reasons I find Uma Thurman to be a unique and talented actress. A model and an actress, Thurman’s acting skills as well…

Johnny Depp

Most people probably know him as Captain Jack Sparrow, the quirky yet enchantingly charismatic pirate and captain of the legendary ship, the Black Pearl. But Pirates of the Caribbean (2003, 06, 07, 11), though one of his greatest achievements, is far from being Johnny Depp’s best film. For having both the courage to act insane…
