The 15 Most Famous Actors And Actresses At SXSW

Austin’s SXSW Film Conference has become a big draw for Hollywood celebrities. Here are the 15 most well-known actors and actresses who were officially at SXSW:

15. Jamie-Lynn Sigler

The HBO regular (Entourage, The Sopranos) was in the ATX for the premiere of Wake, an Indie flick with a The Twilight Zone feel.

14. Jonah Hill

The chubster comedian hit up the SXSW red carpet to promote his new film Cyrus, a romp where he plays Marisa Tomei’s son.

13. Chloë Sevigny

The Indie queen showed up for the world premiere of Mr. Nice, the British biopic about former drug kingpin Howard Marks (which we loved).

12. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

This future Oscar nominee (just a matter of time) threw a big HitRecord (his collaborative media site) event Saturday night.

11. Kristen Stewart

The Twilight star attended the SXSW showing of The Runaways. No, ladies, Robert Pattinson didn’t accompany her.

10. Ryan Phillippe

The ex-Mr. Withersp0on was at the Paramount for a sneak preview of the SNL spoof MacGruber (check out our MacGruber review).

9. John C. Reilly

Will Ferrell’s partner in crime showed up  rocking a fedora to offer support for Cyrus, in which he co-stars with Hill and Tomei.

8. Ashton Kutcher

Ranked in the middle due to his 4.6 million Twitter followers yet questionable acting skills, Kutcher was here more for SXSW Interactive than SXSW Film.

7. Dakota Fanning

This Meryl Streep-in-training walked the Austin red carpet to pump up The Runaways, a film about Joan Jett and Cherie Currie’s legendary band.

6. Sissy Spacek

The former Oscar winner and six-time nominee traveled to Texas to attended a screening of Get Low. No fans showed up as Carrie, which is surprising given Austin’s horror-loving culture.

5. Adrien Brody

Brody, also an Oscar winner, was part of a big Predators presser. Oddly enough, he didn’t attend the big Predators sneak preview event at the Ritz.

4. Robert Duvall

It was an honor to have one of the best film actors of all time in our own backyard (for Get Low). Thanks for coming, Bobby!

3. Val Kilmer

He showed up for the MacGruber red carpet event, but then blew off the post-movie Q & A session. Maybe he went to Kilmer burgers?

2. Edward Norton

The Fight Club starrer and most recent Hulk was at the South Lamar Alamo Drafthouse for the U.S. premiere of Leaves of Grass.

1. Bill Murray

Murray, who was in town for the Get Low showing, was reportedly tossing back shots with Wu-Tang’s GZA. Doesn’t get any cooler than ODM — Ol’ Dirty Murray.
