    MB has never been a good actor. Screaming does not make you talented. Sorry.

    • Matt Williams

      This man has won awards for his acting. Apparently some people think he’s a acceptional actor.

      • Bexx

        Leo DiCaprio never won an Oscar, and some believe him to be one of the greatest. MB might have been semi decent when he started his career, but he is horrible now.
