      she actually came to my school and gave a lesson to some younger students ^^

    • Apple

      Check out some of the stuff she did with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. I couldn't believe how bitchy she could act after seeing her earlier stuff.

      • its_forge

        She was also in "Nanny McPhee" with the also awesome Emma Thompson.

  • Brother Maynard

    #4 Alan Rickman is the man.

    • Petey

      "Hello, you've reached Alan Rickman. Leave a message at the beep" *BEEP* "Hello, Alan Rickman. This is Alan Rickman"…

    #4 "Mr. takagi will not be joining us for the rest. of. his. life." – Die hard!

    #9 holy shit she WAS hot!

    • KingDerp

      #1 not simply the bad russian terrorist, but the badass terrorist who takes over air force one.

      • Jimmy C

        Also the bad cop in The Professional.

        And Commissioner Gordon in the Batman reboots.

      • its_forge

        In case anyone's not knowing that's Sid Vicious on the left there.

        • Tempest

          Pretty sure it's Gary Oldman AS Sid Vicious in 1986's "Sid & Nancy". Saw that at 13 and didn't realize that was Gary Oldman until this moment. Also, are you guys seriously trying to list every film this guy's been in? He's been in nearly every third movie to come out for the past 30 years. Personal favorite, "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" with Tim Roth.

          "Don't leave me here with worthless!"

          • its_forge

            I always think people can figure out what I'm saying even when I don't say it plainly enough. = ) That's what I meant, Oldman as Sid. I figured a lot of people didn't see that film.

  • BigCharles

    #11 Ah dammit, I was good looking once, then my plastic surgery fell off and im left without a nose!

    • BulletproofMonk

      Isn't that a michael jackson quote?

  • A.J.

    #6 I've always found her attractive in a wierd kinda way

    • https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=900785222 Frédéric Purenne

      I've always found her attractive in a normal kinda way

      • DrROBOTO

        ive always found her unnattractive in a slightly normal way

    • http://www.tube8.com Troll_the_world

      YEAH NO KIDDING … She is fuckin' sexy. I am glad Tim Burton taps that .. he's a cool dude and I really enjoy his style of directing.

      I think I REALLY started enjoying Helena after (during) Fight Club.
      She's pretty "normal" in real life . .but she does play dark, eccentric, and quarky characters. More power to them, needs to play more sexy dark, eccentric, and quarky characters IMO. HA!

    • Douche McFuckstain

      Yes indeed. Like the kind of girl who will put you in a leather mask and beat you until you pee yourself. Amiright?

      …I'll be leaving now.

    • Tyler Durden

      I'd fuck her like she hasn't been fucked since grade school

  • Mee

    #9 #11 HOTTIES!!

    • Master_Rahl

      Took the word right outta my mouth – Maggie WAS a hottie back in the day. Giggety!!

  • http://twitter.com/mizdictator @mizdictator

    #4 I swear he just got sexier over the years.

    • http://www.tube8.com Troll_the_world

      I know I can IMDB this, but same bad guy in Die Hard, correct?
      So I am curious . What makes him sexier as he got older? His bank account or his looks? (j/k)

      • Master_Rahl

        You bet – Hans Gruber – iconic baddie.

    • Bess

      I concur completely! There is just something wonderful about him!

    You can call me a nerd, but any movie with these three guys sharing the screen is the definition awesome.

      nerd (plural nerds)

      I don't think that word means what you(and ALOT of other people) think it means…..

      • TRON


  • SweetAwesomeness

    #10 was also the peeping tom pervert in National Lampoons European Vacation…in the bathroom scene

    • https://www.facebook.com/jason.ciotti Jason Ciotti

      Was also in "Krull" with Liam Neeson.

    • abcdefg

      Valentin from Goldeneye

  • Brother Maynard

    Damn, Maggie Smith was sexy in her day.

    • Jed

      10 points for Gryffindor

    • Tempest

      She's still looking pretty good for her age, but seriously… damn.

  • Don113

    #9: Please don't tell me I was the only one who went, "Holy Shit."

    • Brother Maynard

      Err, no.

    • Umbra Fractus

      I didn't, but that's only because I already knew. 🙂

    • B45op

      Holy shit you went Holy shit too!

  • Brian


    Sid Vicious, you little bitches. Long live punk!

    • Lulzypop

      Sid Vicious was an untalented waste of space attention-whore. Like the punk equivalent of Lindsay Lohan.

      • its_forge

        With Sid it wasn't about talent, it was just about being who he was in the time and place he was. He was awesome at being… a good-looking fuckup, and it was sad we lost him, but somebody had to be there for the lesson plan.

    • Allenavw

      The picture is very similar, but it's not Sid Vicious. The mouth is different, for starters. Also, Gary Oldman is awesome. So case closed.

      • Tim Tom

        It's Gary Oldman as Sid Vicious(of course).

        • Allenavw

          Well then 🙂 I guess that explains that.

  • Yessirr

    A Harry Potter post is being much more warmly accepted on theChive than I might have expected.

    • The_Dood

      Are you new here? There's Harry Potter shit all the time.

      • Yessirr

        Not even close. Yeah there are occasionally things in DAR or DMA referencing Harry Potter or Emma Watson and her new-found hotness, but as far as an entire post, this is the first I recall.

        • The_Dood

          There has been one behind the scenes a few months ago and I want to remember at least two others. It would probably be easier to remember if I cared…

  • SpacemanSpiff

    #2 could have kept his name in the movie

  • GhostWolf

    #5 Damn, Harris was pretty studly looking back in the day.

    • Just Sayin...

      The man got more ass than a public toliet seat!!!

  • 16inchzipper


  • Waylon

    #9 Damn, Maggie Smith was a fox!

  • TomTheCameraGuy

    #5 Harris was actually a singer too. Apparently this awful song was a huge hit back in the day…

    • its_forge

      I'm behind a firewall but I have to assume that's Macarthur Park so I'm just going to go and shoot myself in the face now.

  • mLG

    Ralph Fiennes did not age well.

  • TheAutomaticMan

    #9 Agreed

    #1 Always will be Ludwig van Beethoven, from Immortal Beloved, for me.

    • Dan

      I always think of him as Dracula or the evil cop in "The Professional".

      • strychnine


        • bigdeal

          just watched that the other day and it simply reaffirms the fact that gary oldman is the best ever.


    • bigdeal
