Favorite/Least Favorite Director/Actor Pairings?

After seeing Ed Wood for the first time about three weeks ago, I had thought about making this thread, and then promptly forgot about it. Tonight, I was looking through Robert Zemeckis' filmography and noticed he's used Tom Hanks a few times, and I've enjoyed all three of those films, and that prompted me to get back around to making this thread.

So, I'm not sure what my favorite would be, I had something in mind but I've forgotten, but the one I'm definitely most tired of at this point is Depp/Burton.

Yeah, Depp and Burton need to go bury themselves in a hole somewhere for a decade or two.

Wong Kar-Wai/Tony Leung Chiu-Wai ftw.

EDIT: Damn it, I am really off my game tonight. Just produced that one.

Three replies and no mention of Scorsese/DeNiro or Nolan/Bale? You're all off your game tonight.

That's only because my choice is far better.

Anyway, here are some more:

Kurosawa/Mifune
Antonioni/Vitti
Fellini/Mastroianni, though not an extremely prolific relationship a very important one
Hou Hsiao-Hsien/Shu Qi
Almodovar/Cruz
Godard/Karina
Hitchcock/Grant
Woo/Chow

I'll think of some more that are obviously eluding me.

Rivette/Ogier
Truffaut/Leaud
Chabrol/Audran
Buñuel/Rey
Allen/Keaton
Allen/Farrow
Lee/Washington
Carpenter/Russell

Burton/Depp would definitely be my least favorite, came to mind as soon as I saw the thread title.

Nolan/Bale was entirely facetious anyway.

One that has very little artistic merit or significance but never fails to make me smile: Anderson/Murray.

I kind of figured.

And your latter suggested triggered another hardly-related one in my brain:

Jarmusch/De Bankole
