Most Overrated Actors/Actressesheather

She is very annoying and untalented
Not an actress. She's a part of the new 'entertainment industry' in the last 15 years where you get famous by looking hot and posing half naked like Paris. At least Marilyn Monroe was in 'Some Like it Hot'.
I didn't realize she was an actress. Never watched anything with her in it on purpose and to me she could easily just be a sex doll puppet crafted by the surgeon and existing in a void I have no interest in.

I actually love lady gaga's acting skills she was great as a helpful waitress in Sin City A dame to kill for and she was fantastic as La Chameleon in Machete Kills and even won best actress golden globe for American Horror Story Hotel as a phenomenal and the memorable Countess Elizabeth and before that she did a really good acting job in her music video Marry the Night
A bunch of documentaries, tours, and a Simpsons episode don't count as "acting".
Entertainers and actors/actresses are different categories even if they appears in movies like "machete".

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.

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.V6 Comments
Undeserved critics that he is a one-dimensional actor who plays over and over the same characters. Maybe true for some part but even so, the characters he's playing are very well performed. Just because he is not versatile as an actor doesn't mean that he is a bad actor. Overrated? Nobody ever said that he was an exeptional actor who can play everything. So?
Love him. Intelligent and trans formative actor.
Hasn't been in a movie I like. My mother loves him.V3 Comments
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 talentV27 Comments
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.V21 Comments
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.V10 Comments
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.V8 Comments
He is an arrogant idiot. I remember in a "song" of his in 1999 that he said "Millennium? Nah, willennium". As if 2000 years of history has led up to this man declaring himself the centre of history. This arrogance (unjustified - he's not good looking or good at acting) comes across in many ways, both subtle and blatant. Get a life, you moron! Praising yourself is ugly, not cool!
Okay, you guys need to get a grip. Let's put you in Will's shoes and see the absolutely wonderful (note sarcasm) job you do on the big screen. Just please shut up. Do you not have anything better to do?
He is so annoying included his son and daughter, who they think they are? Untalented family. they are a waste of space!
Very inconsistentV8 Comments
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.V7 Comments
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.
BUFFOON. I expect drool to run out of this retards mouth every time he appears on camera. What the HELL is wrong with this chode
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.V7 Comments
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 deliveryV5 Comments
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.V8 Comments
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.V3 Comments
You know she is overrated when she is #5 Best actress and you know the same person keeps voting for her. Nobodys ever heard of her.
Very Overrated. Many of her contemperaries were more talented ( Louise Brooks, Dolores del Rio,Mary pickford... ).
She had even a stutter problem. Sad and not her fault, but a fact that can't be ignored when you put her on the best actresses list.
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.V9 Comments
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 blahV14 Comments
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".
