People being all like "Wow this guy is such an amazing actor, so dedicated!" but to be honest if the only way you can act is to do something drastic like this then you are a **** actor, actors should be able to bend to a role and not have to live the experience to be able to act it.

It's called method acting and all of the best actors do it.


They don't just pretend to be the person, they become to person.

Well no. To truly understand something you should experience it. Actors are trained to do this, well some anyway. The great actors always dedicate to their roles, by becoming the character. It's pretty difficult to be a great actor and portray a believable character without experiencing what the character has been through. The Pianist was Adrian Brody's best acting role. He had these little quirks, that made the character real. Now if you had an actor who didn't do this, it wouldn't be as believable. It would be a guy, reading some lines, and then doing some things that they learned in acting School. That is why you call these type of actors who dedicate themselves, Method Actors. There are so little of them too.

An actor is someone who takes on a given role and makes it believable, skilled actors can take on a role without need for spending months of their life living the role, skilled actors can quickly adapt to a role, im not saying Adrian Brody didn't give a great performance im just saying him needing to "live" the life of the character to then portray him is less skilled than an actor who doesn't need to do that. There are plenty of actors out there who give amazing performances without the need to "live" the role.

Give me some actors who aren't method actors who can portray good characters without living the life? Again some actors have lived it. Some actors have experienced some stuff so are suited for the role. Some of them started young, and portray similar characters so stick to the same type of films or characters. While others try and portray different ones. Heath Ledger for example. I can't think of anyone who could have portrayed the Joker as good as he did. And the only way he could do that was by making himself semi insane. (Locking himself in his hotel, writing down dark insane thoughts). To me, an Actor has to experience somethings to portray someone. It's very difficult to imitate something without at least researching something. Some want to be better, by experiencing everything. Practice makes perfect.

There is a huge difference between most method actors and giving up all of your possessions and breaking up with your girlfriend though, some method actors just research the role really well, some ask people to only call them by the name of the character they are playing and some read a lot of literature wrote in the time the movie was set in (if its a historical piece obviously) method acting varies so much that you can't group all method actors together.

As a working method-actor myself, I can tell you a few things.

Pretty much anything you used as arguments in this heaty little debate of yours is terribly wrong. Chudboy is basically right about everything. No actor ever portrayed a great role without using their past experience in life or putting themselves in a position where they have to experience it.

The ******** you're bringing about a great actor dabadee dabada can do **** without even prepareing for it? Let me bring up a few actors that uses 6 months - 2 years for a role: Marlon Brando, Leo, Kevin Spacey, Edward Norton etc.

Ofc there are roles (i played a stupid redneck once) you dont have to prepare much for at all, but huge hollywood roles, especially the weird ones, needs tons of preperation. Mulholland Drive perce, the actors were told to do a bad job, how do you do a bad job, when youre a professional actor? You have to prepare. ****, you pissed me off.

TLDR: Faz is an ignorant bezzerwizzer.

The way you said in your first comment, essentially gave me the impression that good actors should be able to portray the character by just simply reading the lines. Essentially that is the logic you're showing. "Oh you're actually reading about the character, pfft you must be a terrible actor. You should be able to act as them on the spot". Some actors actually want to do a great job of it, and do some things to experience the role. Some actors experience things, others don't. Depends on the role, and how well the actor wants to do their job, rather than reading lines.

True, but for me, I consider the best actors who go the extra mile. Who actually do their job of portraying a real character. Daniel Day Lewis for instance, didn't break character when he was studying the role of Lincoln. I think that's superb, he's becoming that person to portray him better in film. All I'm saying is, it's very difficult to portray a REAL character without researching the role. Some go the extra mile, by doing some insane things, but that's just for them to portray the character better. Their not bad at what they do for doing this. They're just more passionate about the role they're playing. If you're portraying a fictional character it's easier to put your own spin on it.

For me, most of the great actors are method actors, and dedicate their time to researching the person and roles. By either meeting them, researching the person, and going through their experiences in anyway possible. It's pretty difficult to actually portray something you haven't been through. Even for actors, it is very difficult, believe me. See Christian Bale, Daniel Day Lewis etc Both considered great and one of the best actors. Because they are method actors, who go deeper into their role and (as cliche as it sounds) become the character. They do their jobs properly. Otherwise you have actors who just read lines and play the same character each time (Tom Cruise for example. Great actor but plays the same character each time). Now some actors have some roles that suit them, because they have experienced it. That's why you have actors like R. Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket who usually acts as a military guy. Because he was in the Marines, and you can get him to portray a drill sergeant spot on. It depends on the role really. Some actors are suited for it, because its' what their best at, or have experienced it. For others, they have to go the extra mile, to do a good job of it. And the ones who do, usually are considered the best actors.

No no n. A good actor is one who can do that, but realizes that if he does he won't do it as well as if he had a link to his part. A good actor can play a good role with no prep, but a godlike role with a few months to experience their role. Also you just got shown up by a dumb private bro, you're smarter than this.

That's why you have many actors who go and meet the person that the film is based on. So they can portray that character, and portray the person exactly how they are. See, Christian Bale in the Fighter. At the end in the credits, you have the actual two brother talking. And the Bale got that character spot on, with how he acts, his personality and little quirks. And that's the proper way of acting for me. And if this actor actually wants to experience these, and dedicate himself to his career, he definitely makes him a great actor in my book. Now if you're making a film with a fictional character, it's a little bit easier, because you can create the character yourself. But if you have to act as a real person, then you need to portray them exactly how they were, by meeting them, reading about them, try to experience what they did, to portray them as a believable person.

Throwing away everything is not the same as having everything taken away from you.   
   
It's merely pretending, even if he burned his bank accounts and destroyed everything, it's not like he wasn't looking at a paycheck.    
   
Saying "that he did' is a gross overstatement.

A lot of actors do incredible things to be in movie roles. Change their weight, grow beards. Heath ledger, to prepare for his role as the joker in' the dark knight' spent a month by himself in a hotel room, formulating the joker, his posture, his voice, and kept a journal of his thoughts, as if the joker himself was living in his head. This is why they make the big bucks. A good actor will commit heavily to a role, change his routines, his life if necessary, to make himself fit the role.

"Acting! My dear boy Acting!"

**** like this doesn't impress me. Purposely losing **** isn't the same as having it forcibly taken from you. You want to express pain on the big screen? ACT! THAT'S YOUR ******* "talent" SO DO IT!.

Some actors can't just generate emotion out of thin air. The form of acting that he used in this case was method acting, and that requires the actor to live as their character would. I've used it in a few of my roles and it helps a lot with drawing out the required emotions.
