How did we choose the 100 best romantic movies of all time? We asked the experts. Actors and actresses know a thing or two about what works in romantic films. These guys are on the frontline, delivering lines – from the cringeworthy to the heartstopping. We talked to ‘Thor’ actor Tom Hiddleston, ‘Downton Abbey’ star Joanne Froggatt and Christopher Walken. Here are the actors’ lists of their top ten favourite romantic movies.

Tom Hiddleston’s top ten
The Last of the Mohicans
The English Patient
Pretty Woman
Dirty Dancing
William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet
In the Mood for Love
The Fabulous Baker Boys
True Romance
Silver Linings Playbook
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly


‘Romance is a not specialist subject, but when done right, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – better in cinema. Don’t ask me why but I find “The Last of the Mohicans” extraordinarily romantic. Mann explores notions of heroism, chivalry, masculinity, sacrifice and intimacy – all inside a motion picture which looks and feels at other times like a historical epic, an action adventure and a war movie.
‘The relationship between Daniel Day Lewis and Madeleine Stowe is among the most romantic that I can remember, but the real knife in the heart is between Eric Schweig and Jodhi May. Don’t even get me started on the score. I might actually cry.’
