First thing I saw them in: I think it might have been “She-devil”, ages and ages and ages ago. Or possibly “Death becomes her”.
Favorite work of theirs: “Julie & Julia”, I think. I love that movie (and not just because of the food). Honorable mention to “Mamma Mia!" though, because it makes me happy to watch - they all seem to enjoy themselves so darn much! :P
Least favorite work: I might be going against the grain here, but I didn’t really like “The Devil wears Prada”. Not because of Meryl’s performance, but to me this whole movie is rather meh.
Actor I’d love for them to play against in a movie: Raphael Sbarge. :P
Would I rather marry/be best friends with/get adopted by them: Be best friends! Meryl seems to me to be a delightfully crazy lady with bone in her nose
(does this expression translate? Language is hard.) and a wonderful sense of humour. I would love to party with her! (And this is from a girl who is not a party girl at all. That’s saying something.)
First thing I saw them in: I don’t have a clear impression in my mind that stands out as the first time I saw Jack Nicholson, but I do remember watching “Wolf" many, many times as a kid. Even now that movie is one of my all time Jack Nicholson-movies - terrible as it in many ways is. :P
Favorite work of theirs: Honorable mention to “Wolf" because of the nostalgic value, and to "The Bucket List" for making me cry, but I think my very favourite must be "As good as it gets”. (It’s tempting to say “One flew over the cuckoo's nest” but it's not really Jack I love the most about that movie.)
Least favorite work: I’ve enjoyed him in most of the movies I’ve seen him in, and I can’t think of a performance I disliked.
Actor I’d love for them to play against in a movie: Raphael Sbarge. ;P
Would I rather marry/be best friends with/get adopted by them: Be best friends! I doubt we’d have much in common, but I read an interview with him once that really stuck with me, where the interviewer described how sad Jack seemed when they started talking about Stanley Kubrick - the fact that he misses his friend so much even after so long… I don’t know, it really humanised him in my mind, you know? I think Jack really values those important to him.
