81Kevin Costner

The same deadpan style in every film

Kevin Costner has some talent, but he's a very bad actor. He can play the sincere role, but he can't do much else. He also doesn't like to do any movie where he isn't the lead. Makes him kind of conceited in my book.

"Zzz, he's so boring on screen... Where are the old time greats! Give me William Holden, Humphrey Bogart, Greg Peck any day! "

Plays the same character in every movie

82Demi 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.

83Matt Damon

Maybe not the worst actor out there but he is for sure too overrated. He's good in some movies ( but I can't decide if that is because the film is good and he's Lucky to be in it or because he is good ) but he's also in much movies where I find him boring and annoying to watch.

I'm in love with him really he he and my husband know

He sucks and good will hunting is one of the worst movies of all time

84Nora 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...

85Gwyneth Paltrow

The worst actress ever. Worse than Lindsey Lohan!

Great actress in terrific movies? Emma was one? Look for the " Emma " movie version with Kate Beckinsale ( Real British actress with no fake bad British accent like Gwyneth Paltrow and most of all, better looking and more talented than Gwyneth Paltrow! ). This movie alone proves already that Gwyneth Paltrow is too overrated when you see the Kate Beckinsale version.

A inside and outside ugly snob actress! Overrated in everything she does and overrated in everything she is! She's the typical " Lucky connected " Jewish fake person with an arrogant attitude towards others.

Great actress in some terrific movies. Emma was one. Country Strong another. Give her a break already

86Elle FanningMary Elle Fanning is an American actress. She is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning and mainly known for her starring roles in Phoebe in Wonderland, Somewhere, We Bought a Zoo, and as Aurora in 2014's Maleficent.

The younger sister has already surpassed Dakota. Elle Fanning's career is getting more and more interesting while Dakota's been stuck in so-so indie movies.

87Aisha 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?

88Marilyn Monroe

I can't believe she's not on the top ten. She should be number one. She can't act. Neither can Audrey Hepburn and most 50s fads. But with Marilyn it's not just the acting. Her looks and dare also way overrated. And I don't know what Paris Hilton's doing on this list. Why is she overrated? No one even likes her acting. And Kristen and Miley aren't really praised for their acting. They just have a lot of young fans. I agree Meryl Streep is "overrated", but not bad. And Marlon Brando, definitely overrated.

Nothing special actress with very little talent and mediocre looks. She was famous because she was a whore, because she had curves, and because she looked kinda cute with her pancake makeup, bleached out hair and fake nose. Not a good role model for girls or women at all. But then, most celebrities are extremely overrated and should not be glorified the way they are. Makes for a sick society.

I agree - Marilyn Monroe was all about teasing men and looking pretty and happy all the time - to attract more men! Even if they were already taken! She couldn't act! Too "breathy" all the time - too drunk and drugged out all the time. That's SPECIAL? And how much bleach do you really need? And was that mole even real? There are older pictures of her where there wasn't even a mole on her face. Who's idea was that? She should be the #1 OVERRATED Actress HANDS DOWN!

Pure garbage. She would have no accolades or praise had she lived and given us the chance to really assess her talentless overrated performances rather than the ridiculous way she was romanticized

89Joanne Woodward

What a phenomena. The best actress that ever was!

90Bob Saget
91Julianne 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

92Robert 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

94Russell 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.

95Eddie 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

96Tim 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

97Kris 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.

98Frances 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.

99Elisha Cuthbert

RIDICULOUSLY BAD. Don't SEE HOW PEOPLE THINK SHES HOT EITHER. ALL SHE DOES IS TAKE HER CLOTHES OFF AN LOOK ANNOYED A LOT.

Great actress, but she hasn't been in any movies recently. The Girl Next Door is probably one of my all time favorite movies of the 21st century!

I would love to see her in a high quality T.V. series on Netflix or HBO like revenge, bloodline etc. I think she would be perfect for a T.V. series with a real good script. - ChatonNoir

100Daniel Day-LewisSir Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis is an English actor. He holds both British and Irish citizenship. He has won 3 Academy Awards for Best Actor for My Left Foot, There Will be Blood, and Lincoln.

Possibly the greatest actor of our times without a doubt.

Not a great actor at all, he just is a weirdo trying to give a hyped pompous interpretation, thinking himself the greatest/ Falls into the same category as Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp, George Clooney and those others that aren't really actors, just disgusting individuals who believe they're the greatest thing on Earth.
