Actresses that flare their nostrils while acting?

I’ve noticed that there’s an acting technique where actors and actresses will flare their nostrils when acting as an acting technique. Can you give examples of actresses who flare her nostrils when acting?

    It's not a 'technique'.  It's just the way their faces behave when they're really into their character.

    Tallulah Bankhead, Vivien Leigh and Bette Davis flared their nostrils when portraying anger or disdain.  Marlene Dietrich may have done it too.  I don't know if Katherine Hepburn flared her nostrils, but she had the type of face and acting personality to make nostril flaring effective.

    I've never noticed as I'm always concentrating on my own pet peeve - actors and actresses who say their lines while they're gushing out a big, long sigh. Obviously, my peeve is superior to your silly one. Imagine noticing things like flared nostrils!

  • Its called method acting, feel the feeling and emote it

    don't pretend to be mad, and these things happen naturally
