41Blake Lively

Do you think she can act? No. She looked really ordinary.

I was horrified when I saw that this woman is considered beautiful by American standards. I find her so plain and ordinary. She isn't a very good or versatile actress either

Not about the sexiness guys, it's about how overrated they are, get a grip

I think she's lovely and a wonderful actress

He has received three Golden Globe awards, a Tony Award, and two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor for the historical war drama film Glory and Best Actor for his role as a corrupt cop in the crime thriller Training Day.

Great actor, I don't think I've ever seen a bad movie he was in

You should be ashamed to put him on the same list as kim kardashian and Paris hilton

Superb actor; very credible as a courageous hero or vulnerable anti-hero.

Thank u he sucks I hate him he is not talented what so ever

43Bruce WillisWalter Bruce Willis, known professionally as Bruce Willis, is an American actor, producer, and singer.

I will say that Mickey Rourke is the budget Bruce Willis in many ways. However I do like them both. I will admit that Bruce is one of those actors who is basically the same person in everything. After all there are many types of acting styles. Method actors, Character actors, typecasts etc... but The thing is is that Bruce is himself in everything but he's awesome and very entertaining and does have good range. He might not be able to play Willy Wonka well but many couldn't fit such a role. There is a good reason why he is in so many great movies. Props to Bruce and to hell with the haters.

Probably my favorite actor of the last 25 years. Very under-rated too because most people think of him as a total goof or action hero. He's extremely good as a serious actor. I can name a dozen of his movies I love. Great great actor.

Here is one of the most hit and miss actors for me on this list. Often just plain lazy, but he has quite a few movies that are on my favorites list and still has the potential to pull one off unlike some actors like DeNiro who checked out years ago. That said, I'm not sure I will find it when it comes out since he will agree to sign onto anything that pays regardless of quality.

Middle of the pack

He's so funny and built and quite dreamy

Drop dead gorgeous and drop dead funny

Funny, quick, real and great to watch. Wonderful comedic actor.

He sucks his movies suck.

45Emma WatsonEmma Charlotte Duerre Watson is a British actress, model, and activist. Born in Paris and brought up in Oxfordshire, Watson attended the Dragon School as a child and trained as an actress at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts.

My child and I regularly burst out laughing while watching the Harry Potter movies simply because of her intensely bad acting. We ended up barely able to watch them anymore because of her. And since, I sometimes see these "star" photographs of her, with comments about her being the epitome of beauty etc. - that's another howler... She is one of the most profoundly ordinary looking girls I have ever seen, there is nothing spectacular or remarkable about her looks at all... So weird...

Does her resume really deserve the hype she gets? Let's be honest people like Hermione and they think Emma is cute. Other than that she can't act and for me personally she comes off as full of it in her interviews.

There is no doubt that Emma Watson is a gorgeous young woman, but I wouldn't say that she's the WORST actress in the world. The Harry Potter movies are good, but she is not the best at acting.

A rising star.

Love him. Intelligent and trans formative actor.

Hasn't been in a movie I like. My mother loves him.

47Ryan GoslingRyan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, musician, and producer. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark?

I'm glued to the screen when he is in a movie. Love him.

Hard to say, most films I've seen him in, he was pretty good but then, these were good movies to begin with. Maybe he's just good at picking his roles. Anyway not much to complain about so far.

When Ryan acts in a movie he just takes a seat somewhere and begins to give an empty stare. Occasionally he wanders off to another spot and stares there too. He looks absolutely ridiculous doing it, but that's all he got and he gets money for doing it so...

You have to focus on his emotions to understand his acting which you don't

Bland, so blah

48Justin Timberlake

Does he have any talent? He is an average dancer with a lot of luck! His acting is awful and somehow it seems for me as if he had in Hollywood a lot of connections/friends so that we are pretty much condemned to see him play!

After seeing him in roles like Alpha Dog and the Guru I found myself very impressed as he exceeded my expectations. He's funny on film and in real life but he does serious roles well too. There is a reason he's been a repeat host on SNL. Live comedy skits are not easy to do for even legendary actors. I'm not saying he's the greatest and either is anyone else for that matter but Timberlake is an overall talented guy and deserves respect as an entertainer

Good. Has talent as a singer and actor. Doesn't really do serious parts though. He's more of a Hollywood star than a serious actor. He may someday try a difficult part and we'll see if he can do it.

He can sing and dance, I don't consider him an actor, he is alright, I think he might think a lot more highly of his talents and looks, than most others do.

He is the best :) I like him so much. He's one of the best actors EVER.

As brilliant as Robin Williams.

He can act, but most of his roles and movies are horrible, and everybody loves him so much for some reason. That's what you call "overrated".

He is my childhood favorite! I love him and I still do!

50Steven SeagalSteven Frederic Seagal is an American actor, film producer, screenwriter, film director, martial artist, Aikido instructor, musician, reserve deputy sheriff and entrepreneur.

He only knows how to play the same kind of role : some guy who can do martial arts and is out for revenge. I can't even sit through five minutes of any of his movies. Poor thing.

It's really not fair to over criticize Martial Artist gone actors. Acting was not there first choice of occupation or skill to master. It's Martial Arts. Once they do perfect there skill over many years of practice and training a window opens up for them to showcase their abilities and some of these martial artists are lucky enough to have enough acting skill to make a good action movie. It's not like they are trying to take on roles like Tom Hanks in Philadelphia for example. In that case then you can bash but at that point you should probably bash those who cast someone like Seagal for that role. He is good for what he does. Action movies.

worst excuse for an actor ever. - danajs24

Same movie, same acting. And only shoot him from the chest up cause of the gut.

51Channing TatumChanning Matthew Tatum is an American actor and dancer. Tatum made his film debut in the drama film Coach Carter.

Definitely overrated... He thinks that he's the greatest just because he's considered attractive... No real good movies, really bad acting

He's an ugly male prostitute not an actor and his movies are horrible.

I am a guy but he's super funny in 21 Jump Street. In the movie Step Up he was great also great dancer he's funny and he was the best part of 21 Jump Street. Great dancer funny in White House Down at some parts.

Not a great actor, but I don't think many disagree with that. This is an "overrated actors" list. I think his "rating" is in line with his acting abilities.

52Sarah Jessica ParkerSarah Jessica Parker is an American actress, producer, and designer. She is best known for her leading role as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO television series Sex and the City.

She was awesome (and super pretty) in Flight of the Navigator. I've never really understood why people are always so mean to her just because you find her unattractive. Sarah Jessica never made any poor life choices, therefore there is no reason to be BIG BULLIES! - RockFashionista

Absolutely the most overrated actress. Not that great of an actor. Not that pretty. Period.

She's ugly and old-looking. Why is she still popular on the big screen though Jennfer Aniston is WAY better than her. -

Wilbur. No talent

53Kate Hudson

She looks just fine - when whe wears tons of makeup, but either way she's good looking or not (and she's not), she's still one of the most overrated actress I know of. Not that she's not really bad, but she's just... not good! Her success comes from her parents. And she's kinda anoying, since magazines are still talking about her when she only does crappy movies. Let's face it; her career is over.

Kate hudson is plain and ordinary looking, she's really just average and that's only AFTER the plastic surgery on her nose, the long hair covering her extended ears and dye job to lighten her hair. She has a shallow profile and wide face... Odd features to say the least and her body does not look like that of a woman, but more girl like.

Only in acting and keeps acting because of her mom Goldie and her mom keeps giving her parts or her name does. Hang it up Kate, have some pride and do something else or earn your acting skills like the people who had to work for it, because you can't act. Only a clone of her mom and her mom is still prettier. that goes for you too Gwyneth Paltrow, stop trying to be a singer because it's as bad as your acting.

Oh no another in the family pick. Very little talent just like one face mama.

54Ashton Kutcher

Absolutely charming capable believable and wonderful. He's the best

This guy really can't act. The worst are the romantic comedies ( A lot like love, Guess who... ).And in more serious roles like for example " The butterfly effect" he is not believable. How a untalented actor like him still gets roles and attention by the Hollywood executives is unbelievable. Way too overrated to be called an actor in fact. He's just a silly entertainer and an idiot if you ask me.

Wonderful moving performer. Go crazy when I get to watch him

Such a brilliant, exciting and authentic actor. Love him in everything I've ever seen him in. So convincing, always.

55John TravoltaJohn Joseph Travolta is an American actor, dancer, and singer. Travolta first became known in the 1970s, after appearing on the television series Welcome Back, Kotter and starring in the box office successes Saturday Night Fever and Grease.

The person disparaging this amazing actor hasuch no taste and nary a brain cell. John Travolta has the courage to be himself and is wonderful and brilliant. He can sing and dance as well

What a kind caring, vulnerable and honest actor and humanbeing.

Complete hack! Two famous roles a one dates back to the seventies. Played a good junkie in pulp fiction. But we all know Sam Jackson made that one work.

Started off strong then off the cliff.

56Kirsten DunstKirsten Caroline Dunst is an American actress, singer and model. She made her film debut in Woody Allen's short film Oedipus Wrecks for the anthology film New York Stories.

The most forced, unbelievable performances ever. She made an otherwise good movie almost unwatchable: "All Good Things. " Watch it for Ryan Gosling, try to ignore her, and you might actually like the film.

Can't act and is definitely over rated on all counts. Should consider another career choice

She tries. She takes risks. Not my favorite actress. She's all right. Great boobs.

She was fine as a kid in Little Women and Jumanji. But that's just my opinion.

57Shia LaBeoufShia Saide LaBeouf is an American actor, performance artist, and director who became known among younger audiences as Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens.

Okay, guys. Listen up! Seriously! Most of you guys went to see the Transformers movies just to see HIM and demand more screentime of HIM, just because he's the main star! Yes he's the main star of the films, but that doesn't mean that the movies are good! Here's a valuable life lesson and, of course, there will be disagreements: ACTORS DON'T MAKE THE FILM! SCREENPLAY AND SCRIPTWRITING MAKE THE DANG FILM! GET OVER IT, YOU IDIOTS! I DO have no problem with people liking Shia LaBeouf though, no am I against the actor at all, but it's you idiots who have dedicated yourselves to this guy! Ever since he quit on Michael Bay, since the director's hard to get along with, and won't star in anymore Transformers movies, especially because of you fanboys and fangirls (don't EVER get offended! ), you people have been whining and complaining to get Shia back just because he's the main star of the Transformers films! I've seen Transformers shows that HAVE no Sam Witwicky, especially if you want him ...more

Just a douche with annoying acting. Although he's been in a few good films it doesn't mean his performances are good.

He's interesting. He was good in the von trier film that I can't remember the name of. Von trier always picks the creme de la creme of Hollywood so be aware of this actor - ChatonNoir

I just cannot warm up to him. He always looks angry.

58Chuck Norris

People act as if he is the toughest guy in the world.

But no worries, he would be remembered for all his jokes and backward politics rather than his talent (? ) in acting.

He only has Walker Texas Ranger, that is all.

Did anybody really believe he was a great actor to begin with?

The man will never learn how to act EVER!

Possibly, the baddest joke the entertainment industry has ever made.

59John WayneMarion Mitchell Morrison, known professionally as John Wayne and nicknamed Duke, was an American actor, director, and producer.

Not the greatest actor and comparatively limited in what he did but he had an aura and a screen presence not many could or can match. A legend!

All those actors back then were awesome. Now movies today are lousy. Bring all those actors back then back to life so we can see more excellent movies instead of lousy day actors who always are in the same roles. Back then, you could not run out of ideas whatsoever.

A textbook case of not so much "actor" as "movie star." you couldn't find a less versatile performer if your life depended on it!

He was like the Laurence Olivier of constipated delivery

60Harrison FordHarrison Ford is an American actor and film producer. He gained worldwide fame for his starring roles as Han Solo in the original Star Wars epic space opera trilogy and the title character of the Indiana Jones film series.

Very good. I can list a dozen of his movies I absolutely love. He rarely does interviews and when he does he VERY sincere. He hates doing them too because he thinks most of Hollywood is bull. Love him.

Bit of a grump in real life but a man's man - a rarity these days. All male actors are vain though - so he's probably like the rest in that regard. Don't think he has a large acting range -pulls the same faces all the time but who cares. He's a one off. A national treasure. Kiss me Harrison.

He should have stop making movies in the mid nineties; everything since then has been an embarrassment.

Gritty engaging
