I already stated why I din't include The Hunger Games. THG was what brought her into stardom and she was not the reason the movie made so much money. It's like saying Hugh was a star and carried the first X-Men movie when of the lot he was probably the most unknown with both Patrick Stewart and Halle Berry much more familiar with audiences. Just because you part of a successful movie does not make you the reason the movie was successful. Which is what 'carrying' a movie means.

Also just because you are an Oscar winner doesn't make you a bankable star. Mira Sorvino won an Oscar you know. Don't see her carrying big budget movies and drawing audiences.
