Now that we are all so Hollywood savvy, everyone should have at least one answer for this question.
Holly Hunter in Time Code
Steve Zahn in Out of Sight
Selma Blair in Cruel Intentions
Siobhan Fallon in Men in Black
Stealing a picture is a wonderful thing. It is the stuff of career advancement. Because as they say in acting, there are no small parts, just small actors. Potentially, anyone should be able to steal any picture with any role. All you need is a magnetic screen presence and searing talent. Read Holly Hunter.
On the other hand, if an actor does it too often, and he or she will never work in this town again. (And if anyone can think of someone who ruined their career chances in Hollywood this way, please, sing out!) Stealing pictures, it’s a crime that must be practiced with care and some subtlety.
Please, let me know who we can add to this list.
