There is a difference between what makes a great movie star and what makes a great actor. While the stars on this list are undoubtedly good actors, they have a something extra which makes them great movie stars. Therefore, wonderful actors like Gene Hackman, Robert DeNiro, Peter O’Toole and Robert Duvall didn’t make the cut.
The last 100 years of cinema has been filled with great stars and it was difficult limiting the list down to ten. Sure, I could have had a top 100 rundown, but that leaves too much leeway, because of this great movie stars such as Harrison Ford, Dustin Hoffman, Will Smith, Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, Kevin Costner and, yes even people like Arnold Schwarzenegger were left off the list. It was a tough call, but I chose who I believed exuded the most star quality.
