He's my favorite actor, and possibly my favorite person. He's intelligent, talented and I love that he's so concerned about the state of things. He does a lot of charity work and he really just seems like a great guy. I've loved every role he has done (even though his latest movies have been disappointing).
Katharine Hepburn is definitely one of my favorite actresses. Her personality is amazing, and her acting is great (or should I say was?). Even though she was really beautiful and feminine, she still had some tomboyish character in her. She's is one of the few people I relate to, at least on some level.
Johnny Rotten is one of my greatest inspirations in life. Many people don't get it but I respect this guy so much. As I found someone that already said how I feel about John Lydon, I'll just quote her:
"No matter who or what he is now, what he’s said, what he’s done, Lydon will forever remain one of my biggest inspirations for his moments of insight throughout his life, his ability to remain grounded throughout the punk movement when everyone around him was going out of their minds, and his ‘Fuck it or leave it’ attitude on life."
I got a chance to meet her in London and I've been in love ever since. I loved Brienne and thought she was so great but after meeting her I love her even more. She's such a confident and beautiful woman, really an inspiration for me. She's really tall and she can still carry every inch of her with grace.
I just don't get why this guy doesn't get the recognition he deserves. He should have like a million Academy Awards by now. He won my heart with his portrayal of Sid Vicious, but every freaking role of his always pleases me.
Joe Strummer was amazing, as a musician but also as a person. I really respect and admire him for his attitude on life and general way of thinking. He was intelligent, witty and talented. Such a grounded person and really just a great person. He is one of the most inspiring musicians ever.
This dude is the greatest Finnish person ever. He's a lyrical genius and his attitude on life is admirable. He's intelligent and very aware of the state of things in our society. As a rapper he's superior to almost every rapper in Finland.
Internet personalities don't often inspire me but when they do, they are people like Charlie McDonnell. Charlie is just a cute, nerdy yet very intelligent person. He's not afraid to be what he is (like a major Doctor Who nerd and such) and how can you not love him.
I've seen her in various roles where she has really been extraordinary. When it comes to acting, she's not afraid to look 'ugly' (even though it's really hard to look ugly with that face but anyway). She's not too centered about her looks which is very rare I guess.
Hilary Swank is great. She has done some brave choices in her roles. I mean playing a transgendered teen and a female boxer is quite brave for an actress. And I know that people think she isn't pretty enough and judge her because of that. But she has real talent and she's beautiful.
Since it seems like Listal has become a place filled with pictures of slutty chicks and porn stars, I wanted to make a list about people (actors, musicians, whoever) who inspire me. Not because their tits are big or because they have an amazing body. To me, they are talented and intelligent but also beautiful outside as well as on the inside.
I would also like to put one name in the description box since this guy cannot be found on Listal. And this guy is an amazing musician, a legend in the punk scene of Finland, and my one of my newest heroes; Teemu Bergman.
Like so many of my heroes and preferred men, Teemu is also a kind of mess, having had problems with drugs and alcohol (well, that's kinda common in the punk scene but anyway) but he really has accomplished so much. I love the fact that he just doesn't even try to be someone else. I agree on many of the things he has said or done and I guess I'm just a sucker for a punk rocker.
