Sometimes, there are just actors who understand their roles so completely that fans always know they can trust them. So when a meme started to go around pointing out who “understood” the assignment, the results varied. From pointing out that these actors always shine no matter the quality of the movie to pointing out specific kinds of roles they always flock to and understand, it was just a way for fans to share love for their favorites.
For me, my go-to choice was Margot Robbie. While a favorite actress of mine, she also always seems to shine in whatever movie she’s in. Even movies that are not well-loved (like Suicide Squad) have the love for Robbie and her performance shining through. The movie might not be great, but you know that Margot Robbie will be. Because, as the meme points out, she understands the movie she’s supposed to be in, even if the rest of the movie doesn’t match her the right way. (Again, just think about Suicide Squad.)
Many took to Twitter to share their love for their faves and talk about the roles they shine in.
