#11: Kathy Bates. Besides the fact that Miss Kathy Bates reminds me of my high school History teacher who hated my guts, I love her! Misery, Fried Green Tomatoes, Delores Claiborne, Titanic, The Blind Side. It doesn't matter if she is the lead or has a minor role, you can always expect a superb performance. Oh. And look at that. Kathy Bates ALSO has her degree in Theatre! She's a survivor of ovarian cancer and continues to produce wonderful work, whether she's performing or directing.

Maggie Brown - Most people will remember her from the Titanic movie, but according to our tour guide, she was quite as abrasive as Kathy Bates portrayed her. And she wasn't some backwater ignorant redneck. At the time of the Titanic sinking she spoke 6 languages and acted as a translator and advocate for the immigrant widows who survived the wreck.
