61Will Smith

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 inconsistent

62MadonnaMadonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

I seriously believe that Madonna would have been the mother of all publicists. She can't sing (even though when I was a kid, I loved her first four albums), she can't act and yet has managed to stay in the spotlight. She knows how to promote herself and she actually looks better now than she did 30 years ago. The mother of reinvention but the worst "singer turned actress" ever... Yes even worse than Beyonce.

How did Madonna fail to make first on the list? No talent except for selling herself and over hyping everything she does. Someone needs to tell Grandma that she's too old to sell her bod.

I don't understand how someone in front of millions of people for YEARS at this point can still be so wooden in her interviews & when she tries to act. Why can't she relax & be more fluid & expressive? She's just a plank board. It's painful watching her try to act.

Talent. No. Ambition. In spades.

63Jennifer HudsonJennifer Kate Hudson is an American singer, actress and spokesperson. She rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, coming in seventh place.

Her commercials make me want to stick forks in my ears. Make her voice stop, or teach her better pronunciation.

No talent, acts more like a Jewish princess. Certainly not like her mother Goldie Hawn who is a fabulous comedic and dramatic actress!

Laugh out loud... I like 'Almost Famous' but HATE every other movie she has made. She's okay as an actress but never takes risks. So its hard to rate her.

Jennifer Hudson is not Goldie Hawn's daughter. Kate Hudson is.

Intense intelligent and the best

I'm losing interest in the acting career of this man...

I don't get it. He looks stoned all the time.

Cannot act, his worse role is Jen's boyfriend

66Marion Davies

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.

67Sarah Michelle GellarSarah Michelle Gellar is an American actress, producer and entrepreneur. After being spotted by an agent at the age of four in New York City, she made her acting debut in the made-for-TV movie An Invasion of Privacy.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is Buffy! How can anyone not love this woman! She's so sweet and a wonderful wife and mother, she's one of the few female actresses I can actually watch without cringing.

Sarah is perfect. - DecodeThis

An actress who seems to be good in some types of movies or in some types of scripts. Outstanding performances in " Harvard man" ( her best ), " Possesion " and " Veronica wants to die ". Other movies are unwatchable because of her bad acting skills. I think that she has to choose movies that really fits her because she's not the versatile actress that she believes she is. As a matter of fact, this is an actress who is difficult to Judge for her acting skills. The only sure thing about her is that she's really cute.

She was actually very good in the movie " Harvard man ". I'm not a fan of her acting, so I was really surprised. Why can't she act like that all the time?

Nope, just not good.

68Jean-Claude Van DammeJean-Claude Camille Fran├žois Van Varenberg, professionally known as Jean-Claude Van Damme and abbreviated as JCVD, is a Belgian actor, martial artist, screenwriter, film producer, and director best known for his martial arts action films.

Van Damme is has made some of the best most legendary martial arts films of all time and Van Damme (no offense to Seagal) compared to Seagal is a better actor. He was meant for making great action/martial art movies and they are better than Seagal movies by far. If you can't appreciate movies like Bloodsport and Kickboxer then you have no business judging movies of that type. Keep in mind that martial arts is his primary skill and that goes for all martial artist gone actors. They have good enough acting and awesome athletic martial art abilities to showcase which is why they make great movies or their genre. You simply cannot compare them to actors like Kevin Spacey or Tom Hanks. It's unfair and not what they do. You have to respect them for what they do well.

I like him when he's in movies where he kicks ass. He's very well known for having sex with girls in his car. Haha. He's a Hollywood cliche.

Absolutely the worst ever... His movies are unwatchable. Love Seagal compared to this clown.

This is great actor

69Robert Downey Jr.Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.

One of my favorite actors. See 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'. Great movie.

This guy should be in the first spot. Other than a couple of decent movies, his career has went downhill repeating the same Tony Stark formula for his characters.

Very egotistical. His father was a film director. Nepotism strikes again.

He think that he is a super hero.
He is not a perfect actor.

70Selena GomezSelena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

I'm not a fan of her singing, but I think she has a potential to become a good actress. She's still learning because she is very young and for that matter I believe it's too soon to Judge her acting capacities. Time will tell us if she's too overrated or not.

Miley Cyrus could learn from her.

I prefer her singing career more than her acting career.

She can't act her way out of the paper bag plus she has zero personality...

Absolutely gorgeous looking. But I've never liked anything she's done. Annoying. Thank God she never became an A list actress.

Just watching Deep Impact and her rang is incredible. Same face for distress, happy, sad, concern. She makes Haden Christian look practically Oscar worthy

She has all the range and personality of a stick of wood.

I love this guy. He brings so much pleasure to his audiences and is never afraid to go all out for any role he assumes. What a lively, funny, endearing and adorable actor. Would love to see his stand up as I've heard it's awesome too.

I think he's great as an comedy actor. Was funny in all the " scary movie's " and super funny in " Grudge match " with Stallone and DeNiro. Deserves more recognition and attention. Certainly not overrated.

73Vince Vaughn

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?

74Mark WahlbergMark Robert Michael Wahlberg is an American actor, producer, businessman, and former model and rapper.

Good. I loved him in 'Boogie Nights'. I also loved him in 'The Departed'. 'The Fighter' wasn't bad. I think he's very smart. He produces a lot of stuff and succeeds at almost all of it. Very talented.

I can't think of a single movie I liked because of him, but can think of a few movies that were passable or even good movies where he didn't have a role that hinged on his abilities or that gave him proper support and role.
I also can't think of any movies that couldn't have replaced him with another actor and survived. I've watched far too many bad movies with him to not use his name as a warning sign when it has top billing.

Each film with him as a lead should have a disclaimer: Warning Marky Mark has likely ruined this film which was also likely green lit for all the wrong reasons with the top priority to take your money and sell you that since it made a lot of money it is a good film or that if it fails is not his fault.

For someone that has made so many big movies, he has managed to not have gotten more nominations for awards. I think Mark Wahlberg has had an amazingly successful career and life considering the sum total of his talents. However he did have a very strong physique that he honed to a sharp instrument after almost falling into a life of crime. If he really wanted to make himself look better, he should look for the couple of Asian men he maimed as a kid and give them a few million dollars for their injuries suffered...
I think his career was definitely helped by having a bit of good luck and being in the right places at the right time. After all he almost was on one of the flights that flew into the WTC Buildings on 9/11.

That whole family can't act.

75Hugh JackmanHugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician. Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters.

Beautiful brilliant and highly talented actor

Most of the times a good actor. But in very dramatic roles I think he needs to still improve his acting. I hope he does because otherwise he will never be a great actor to compete with the best.

Fabulous actor. Multi talented.

I wouldn't say he's overrated. More likely underrated. You know, his career is not all about Wolverine. He is a multi-talented guy.

76Arnold SchwarzeneggerArnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

Best in his role of the Terminator. In other words, his best work is when he's portraying a cyborg; void of facial expression, emotions and any general characteristic traits...

I agree he's not a great actor but the accent thing? Think about it.. His first language was dramatically different from English... That's like having an American actor in a Japanese movie and criticizing them for not having an authentic Japanese accent...

Doesn't take seriously roles. Most of his movies are as an action star. He's the king of the one liner. I like him, but I don't see him as a true actor.

The one and only Terminator.

77Jennifer Love Hewitt

I don't think that this very beautiful actress is overrated. She's very appreciated by many for her talent ( she's a good actress, she produces, she sings ) and that's hardly the same thing as to be overrated. A very adorable and down to earth actress in real life and she's certainly not just a pretty face with no talent or brains that's only be there to watching by.

Not overrated but underrated actress. Most people knows her from her popular movies and her T.V. shows but when you see her lesser-known work you will actually understand how talented she is. This adorable actress really don't deserve to be on this list. She's too talented for that!

The Kristen Stewart of 1997. How and why she keeps getting roles just when you think she's finally gone away for good is beyond me.

She is horrible as an actor. She played Audrey Hepburn what a joke - ChatonNoir

Love him. What a talented authentic actor

Shouldn't be anywhere on this list. He is a wonderful and believable actor and convinces me in every single movie he's ever done. He's a true wonder.

So amazing and unique and eager to take on challenging roles. Always inspired by him

Where is he now?

80Sandra BullockSandra Annette Bullock is an American actress and producer. She is one of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses, and is an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award winner.

The female version of nick cage. Hollywood cookie cutter plastic.

Same with todays mainstream music, bunch of prefab, no talent, money grubbing, attention whoring crap with no soul.

I thank my parents everyday for bringing me into the world, long ago, when real music flowed like water and so called actors and actresses were real thespians.

So overrated. Always acting in the same manners. Maybe fair acting in comedies, but honestly,when you see three or four movies of that genre with her, you will get bored after that, just because she plays them all the same way. Conclusion : Overrated and not a great actress either.

She has no personality. A "girl next door" kinda actress should be charming but she isn't. She looks like the pretty girl in high school that just was pretty and who everyone secretly thought was boring as heck... - ChatonNoir

Sucks, why does anyone hire it?
