In this article: the best body language ever in film, with James Bond (Daniel Craig) and Sugar Kane kowalczyk (Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot)
Of all the places where body language is important (and there are a great many), acting is perhaps numero uno. After all, where would Jack Nicholson be without that crazy smile? Where would Jim Carrey be if he didn’t have one of the most expressive bodies in film? Where would Megan Fox be if she didn’t know how to show off her sex appeal to its absolute maximum? Body language makes actors and it makes the characters they portray. And of all the character to have been brought to life through excellent body language, these five are the absolute best
5: Han Solo
Han Solo is the ultimate in cool. This dude (and “dude” really is the word) is so cool he makes Hoth look like Mustafa (nerd insight: in Star Wars, Hoth is an ice planet and Mustafa a lava planet). No wonder princess Leia fell for him. And she wasn’t the only one, the whole damn world fell in love with Han Solo.
Solo’s body language has a few core elements. He takes up space, which makes him look dominant. He’s inexpressive, which makes him look cool. And when he smiles, he lights up the whole Death Star.
4: Buzz Lightyear
If alpha male comes in toy form, then Buzz Lightyear is it. Buzz has mastered the art of looking stylish, cool and alpha. He stands with his legs far apart to show his dominance. He often puts both his hands on his hips, which is a sign of power. He holds his chin up high as though surveying the horizon, which is a sign of confidence and authority. Heck, he can even fly. . . sort of. Buzz Lightyear is totally the man. .. errr. . . toy.
3: Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s):
No woman was ever as charming, elegant and cute as Audrey Hepburn. She could melt the devil’s fiery heart, she’s that damn lovable, and a huge part of the reason is her body language.
Audrey Hepburn and Holy Golightly’s body language in Breakfast at Tiffany’s matches class and sophistication with youthfully, girly cuteness. The class comes largely from her perfect posture and slow, smooth and graceful movement. And as for the girly cuteness, that’s the result of the head-tosses, the highly animated and expressive face and that stunning smile.
These five movie characters illustrate the power and importance of body language in movies. No movie characters have ever used body language with more success than them. They are role models and inspiration for the brilliance of character a person can achieve when they enlist the power of body language in communication and presentation.
