Which Actor From A Rom-Com Carried The Whole Movie On Their Back?

Grease would be nothing without Stockard Channing as Rizzo!

Hello, there! My name is Kayla Yandoli, and if you've ever read one of my BuzzFeed posts, you already know just how much I love rom-com movies.

They make me really freaking happy, especially when one specific actor steals the show and carries the whole movie on their back.

Grease wouldn't have been the same without Stockard Channing, and that's a fact!

So I want to know from you, dear reader: Which actor from a rom-com do *you* think deserves more credit?

Maybe you think Jennifer Coolidge was the best part of the Legally Blonde movies because of her hilarious one-liners and comedic timing.

Or perhaps you believe Rupert Everett was an absolute star in My Best Friend's Wedding, and he definitely doesn't get the credit he deserves.

Or maybe you think Crazy Rich Asians would be NOTHING without Michelle Yeoh because let's face it: Eleanor Young is an amazing character.
