Most Overrated Actors/Actresses


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Julianne Moore

It's obvious you guys didn't see Still Alice. You wouldn't even consider putting her on this list.

I can't understand why this actress gets so many positive reviews by the critics and so much praise. Her acting skills are not that good ( sometimes really boring ) and she seems not to be a very good in playing different characters. She plays Always the same way when it comes to express emotions. What bothers me the most is that she's most of the time nominated, wins awards, Oscars when other nominated actresses who are really talented deserve to win. Is concidered also as one of the most beautiful women
( chosen by people's magazine in the top 50 ) when in reality she's one of the ugliest actresses of Hollywood. Why such a bad actress is Always in the spotlights is a mystery to me but proves also that she is really overrated. In terms of overrating,I believe that she's too low on this list. Should be at least in the top 10 if you ask me.

Definitely one of the ugliest A-list actresses in Hollywood, and hard-to-watch acting to boot. She ruined Hannibal, along with several other films. Every once in awhile she does okay, as long as she's not a main character.

How is she on this list? She is a great actress. She looks stunning. Always interesting even in mediocre films. Maybe a bit on the boring side but not everyone can be funny - ChatonNoir

82Nora Aunor

The so-called Superstar of Philippine cinema, although she was great during the early part of her career (her performances in Tatlong Taong Diyos, Banaue, Himala, among others, were superb), by the late '80s her acting has been characterized by formulaic grunts and ridiculous hand gestures, facial gesticulations, and body movement. By the time she did the famous "I did not kill anybody! " line in The Flor Contemplacion Story, her acting prowess has started to decline.

She attacks all her roles with the same boring style. One you've seen one of her movies you've seen the all.

One style acting... She is not versatile... Lousy to look at on screen... Her ugly face is so distracting on screen...

83Demi MooreDemi Gene Guynes, professionally known as Demi Moore, is an American actress, filmmaker, former songwriter, and model.

Except for Ghost, A Few Good Men and maybe the 80s hit St. Elmo's Fire, Demi Moore's whole career has been a joke based on her looks and films such as Nothing But Trouble, About Lasr Night, Striptease, Disclosure, and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle which were all bombs at the box Office. She is known more for being with Bruce Willis and now Ashton Kutcher. - brettfan

Couldn't agree more. Ghost, that's it! A few good men movie was great, her performance was not. More famous for scandals, marriages, controversial pictures etc. No acting skills whatsoever.

If she had acting skills, she has lost them. They are gone. Sad

Horrible actress and looks like a man.

84Aisha TylerAisha Tyler is an American talk show host, actress, comedian, author, producer, writer, and director.

She literally made me stop watching Criminal Minds this season. She is that awful.

She gets every T.V. secondary role there is, must have a great agent - what I would asked the shows that hire her- why? what is this person adding, are there not 100 unknown actresses who can bring the same or better?

85Kirsten 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 was fine as a kid in Little Women and Jumanji. But that's just my opinion.

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

What a phenomena. The best actress that ever was!

87Bob Saget
88Kris Aquino

Thank god someone agrees. She always looks so stuck up and smug about the fact that her brother's the pres. Luckily, she quit and that was the last time I've seen her - music_book_addict

That's so true. Goodness gracious, she is not a good actress. She's acting so much and so stuck up so I have to agree with you.

I've always thought that life in my country would be a little better if she would just immigrate to the U.S. already. She is vulgar and obnoxious

She should just stick with hosting. Can't act at all.

89Robert RedfordCharles Robert Redford Jr., known professionally as Robert Redford, is an American actor, director, producer, businessman, environmentalist, and philanthropist.

Has been an understated performer since time immemorial. An unbelievably brilliant actor and director.

Very good actor. I can name a dozen movies of his I like. Mostly from the 70's and 80's. He hasn't made many movies in the last 20 years - I think because he likes producing more. He produces and directs now.

Absolutely this love this siren of the screen. Underrated, if anything.

Good actor and one of the most beautiful human beings ever - ChatonNoir

90Andy GarciaAndrés Arturo García Menéndez, professionally known as Andy García, is a Cuban American actor and director.

Gorgeous powerful actor with commanding presence

Amazing and wonderful leading man who never fails to command your attention as he lights up the screen

He was great in supporting roles such as the untouchables and black rain but he just can't hold his own as a lead. He's very stale when he's not cocky. -

92Russell Crow

Russell Crow is one of my favorite actors.

I can't believe it people with comments below are such inadequate.

His role in Gladiator was one of the best in his career.

But in my opinion his best role was in Beautiful Mind and he deserved Oscar for this class act performance - Great Actor!

I agree. I hate him and I don't know why meg ryan screwed around with him. She ruined her career.

Can I buy a vowel? Like an "e" to put at the end of his last name, so it's spelled right?

He is one of those actors (Along with Tom Cruise, and Matthew M) that if I see them listed in a movie I won't go see it.

93Katherine Heigl

Great comedic and ironic actress. Actually very brilliant.

Gorgeous, sharp and funny. Love her so much.

Not necessarily overrated, but she's a terrible actress! She's not good in acting at all and she needs more improvement just to get things done. - sdravenson

I did liked her but when the truth about her ( annoying personality, stuck up attitude, don't care a bit for her fans... ) came out, for some reason I started to dislike her.

94Eddie Murphy

He's stuck in the same kind of roles lately... Trying to make people laugh by making fun of black people. I wonder if that's how he sees his family. Disgusting. - alexa

Haven't liked a movie of his since the 80's. He's became so conceited too. Why didn't we ever see him do SNL after he left? A hole.

He needs to stick with the kids movies like dr. Dolittle where the kids thinks he's funny. that's all he worth

95Tim Robbins

Great actor, not every role he's played has suited his style of acting. He has talent. I once listened to an audio book "The Great Gatsby" narrated by Tim Robbins, it was powerful. I had read the book & since watched the latest movie incarnation, nothing came close to the power he could wield in his narration.

Brilliant, deep, insightful and powerful actor. Probably the best there is.

What a cutie - lucky Susan Sarandon (as long as it lasted) - BrendaRenee

I think he's hot in shawshank and he's really a good actor who never overdoes it. - ChatonNoir

97Jessica Biel

Not the best actress in the world but certainly not the worst either ( lots of actresses on this list are by far less talented ). As a matter of fact, I think she's a really good actress in action movies ( " Blade 3 ", " Total recall ", " Stealth " ) and also in comedies ( " I know pronounce you Chuck & larry ", " Happy New year " ). It's only in more serious and dramatic roles where she's not that " Always " good. If she works to improve her dramatic acting skills she might be becoming a really good actress. She certainly got the looks ( one of the most perfect bodies in Hollywood ) to be seen on the big screen.

Even if she is very beautiful, she is not a good actress.
The only role for which she was known is the one in seven heavens and god knows how much that role sucks!

I would love to see her in a silent nude movie. That's about it. She is so painfully bad I get frustrated watching her. She barely seems to try and has a vacant look in her eyes. I literally won't watch films with her in them and dammit she's in the Hitchcock movie I want to see! Oh choices, choices.

Incredible body. Gorgeous face. Bad awful actress. She needs to quit now.

Too much overrated actor I have ever seen

Voted over aamir and amitabh in some polls. Laugh out loud!
Overrated in this case is an understatement.

One of the worst hero of india, he only knows to cry

This guy sucks! Get him out of here, already. Yawn.

99Richard Gere

Richard Gere is the whole reason I went searching for this list. I had just watched Primal Fear because I had remembered it as being a great movie... I was wrong. Laura Linney and Richard Gere ruined this movie. Richard Gere is a smug poor actor who thinks he is better than he is.

I guess what made this movie great to me 11 years ago was Edward Nortons performance. Otherwise this movie was garbage.

I just watched my first Richard Gere movie. How did this actor ever get to be popular? He was not convincing in the role (Mothman Prophecies), and did not bring credibility to the premise of the movie. I will not look for more movies with Richard in a lead role.

Bad actor and stupid movies. when he was young he was using his looks to get into the movies and he was getting away with it. He was not even that good looking! He is a useless actor.

Something plastic about this man, like a doll in a men's clothing window... - ChatonNoir

100Frances McDormand

Incredible actress. One of my favorites. Almost Famous, Fargo, Laurel Canyon, she's so awesome. I can watch her in anything.

Now this lady is damn fine actress and not given enough credit for her abilities.
I am sure being married to a Coen brother (s) is not an easy role given their collective brilliance

Does she even have to do anything to prepare for her roles? I don't see much "acting" going on with her. Yeah... She had a Midwestern accent in Fargo and scored an Oscar for it. I fail to see any real talent here. Wildly overrated.
