Have you ever watched a movie or a TV program because of one actor or actress? I remember I watched Death at a Funeral just so I could see the woman behind Lara's voice...:o, I did not even know what the story was about, I just decided to go to the picture theater and watch because of Keeley Hawes.. I got excited when she started to speak :o... lol. And I remember, my mum rented out The Bank Job and I watched it with her, and all of a sudden Keeley was on the screen and I was like.. LOOK MUM!! ITS LARA'S VOICE!!! and she was like O_O

lol, so what movies or programs have you watched for the only reason and purpose was to see the actor or actress? :)


OMG!! THE NAME OF THE THREAD IS ERSON!!! AGHHH!!! can some one fix this?! please, I was meant to put person. :(

At first, I watched Dollhouse for Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku. Now, I watch it for SO many more reasons! :D

I've seen lot of Angelina's movies simply because of her. :D I'm obsessed and I'm not ashamed to let people know. xD And I remember a point where I was a big fan of Aishwarya Rai (Bollywood star) and I watched a good amount of her movies just to see her dance :cln:, but that obsession faded.

I dunno if this counts, but I plan on seeing Jennifer's Body and Jonah Hex purely to see more Megan Fox. :cln:

I see the Twilight series because of Kristen Stewart.
I watch Wanted because of Angie.
I'm going to see The Runaways Biopic because of Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning.
I watched Alexander because of Colin Farrell.
I watch those stupid "Date, Disaster, Epic" Movies because of Carmen Electra.
I'm going to watch the more than likely horrible Tekken movie because it's Tekken xD.
There are certain chick flicks I'll watch because of certain people like Jennifer Anniston.

There's more, I need to think.

I was watching some national-geographic-type documentary, and Jonell Elliot began speaking (she was the narrator of the documentary) and I recognized her from Last Revelation.

Don't even remember what the documentary was about...
I was not watching it in order to here her or anything, she just happened to be the speaker.

Failure to Launch just for Sarah Jessica Parker.

I only watched this series of "The Street" because Anna Friel was in it.

Only watched Pushing Daisies because Kristin Chenoweth was in it.

Only watched Ashes to Ashes for Keeley Hawes.

I've done that quite a few times ;) The funny thing is the film/programme they are in may not interest you in the slightest. At the same time you may even develop an interest in the film/programme just because of them!

I won't say (at the moment anyway) who they are though :p

OH, I seen the ad for that last night, I think I might watch it because of Keeley lol. Is it actually any good?

I guess the best example for me would be Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which I only started watching because of Summer Glau.

I only watched Catacombs because Pink was in it (the singer).

And I only watched Pushing Daisies because Kristin Chenoweth was in it.

I often find myself coming across adverts and immediately paying attention to them because either Keeley Hawes is in it or Jonell Elliot is. :p

Labor Pains for Lindsay Lohan.

I Love You, Beth Cooper for Hayden Panettiere.

Sometimes I wonder whether this is worth the torture of crappy teen movies.

Well, usually the cast is one of the biggest influences on my decision to watch a certain movie. And, when it comes to my favourite actors and actresses I really do watch their movies only (or mainly) because it's with them. I like to follow the career of the people I admire. Yeah, sometimes this means watching a lot of crap... :p For example, I had to endure Shaft because it's with Christian Bale.

With TV shows it's a bit diferent because it has to have a good enough story to make me stick to the end.

I saw "I love you, Man" just because you get to see Thomas Lenin kissing Paul Rudd. :p

Exactly the same for me! Shaft was awful. :pi:

Actually, I decided to watch Heroes because of Zach Quinto... but I ended up loving it so! :D

I probably would not have watched Resident Evil 1, 2, 3 or Ultraviolet if Milla Jovovich did not star in them.

i watched The Good Shepherd in theatres, only because Angelina Jolie was in it. big mistake, not only was it one of the most boring and dragged out movies i ever watched, she was in it like for only 5 minutes, it seemed.

Oh for a minute I thought you watched it because of Vin Diesel. :ton:

I saw most of his movies because they're with him. And he's a terrible actor but the guy is just so cool, I can't resist. :pi:
