161James McAvoyJames McAvoy is a Scottish actor. He made his acting début as a teen in 1995's The Near Room and continued to make mostly television appearances until 2003, when his feature film career began and he continued to work in both areas from then on.

I don't know about his acting but the guy is hot.

162Martin Freeman

Uninspired and run of the mill. He has one character - Martin Freedman- if he is playing a summer work undergraduate or a Hobitt. Whoever thought to cast him in hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy? Where was the real anger and frustration? And it's not enough to look a bit like a Hobitt to be a Hobitt. He must have serious professional connections to have been offered such major roles.

163Jude Law

Great serious and comedic actor. Love him.

Good as a character actor but hasn't the charisma for a lead role- he just comes across as insipid

Absolutely adore and worship him

He was good as the psycho in the Road to Perdition. He did a good job. I don't think I have seen any other movies of him.

Okay I think she's a nice person, but I don't believe that she has acting ability and yeah she is kinda overrated. Though why is Jensen Ackles on here? - Anonymousxcxc

Are you kidding me? She has amazing talent! She has more acting talent than half these celebrities combined. She has an awesome singing voice and did awesome on Shake it Up!

165Dwayne JohnsonDwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

Yes, I can smell what the Rock is cooking. That's why I'm standing way over here...

Much better than people give him credit for.

Not talented... his body is the only thing he's got going for him. Very good looking but he's acting sucks. Needs to stay in wrestling where his acting doesn't matter... he's a meat head

166Toni Gonzaga

Isn't she a college basketball team?

167John Malkovich

To me. it depends on his role. There are times when I like him and their are times when I hate him! So, I kind of have mixed feelings about this man as an actor.

He's always John Malkovich. Sure you can say this about a lot of actors. And some, like John Wayne usually played the same character or caracature of himself, but Malkovich's performances come across as merely him reading a script. When he does act out an emotion, it rarely comes off realistic. When he was a new actor, this style seemed unique, but it's now same ol' same ol', stale.

Drier than plain burnt toast. Completely deadpan and flatlined performances - sounds like she is struggling to read lines without actually comprehending them.

169Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston may have received an Academy Award, but he was a terrible actor. His performances were incredibly wooden, and he had a repertoire of approximately one emotional state - one of fake, over-the-top emotional intensity. He is a pain to watch and it baffles me that he ever got so much credit.

Gets too much credits for his acting. He was in movies ( now timeless classics ) like " A touch of evil ", " Ben Hur ", " Planet of the apes "..., but I'm almost certain that if another actor was playing those roles this would have be still great movies. I don't think he did made the difference in those movies as an actor. He's certainly not the worst actor out there. He's just ok but he gets too much praise. He's too overrated.

Stagey and wooden except 3 films - The greatest show on earth, Touch of evil, and Will penny

Gotta agree. A pain to watch that dammed filthy actor!

170Jeremy IronsJeremy John Irons is an English actor. After receiving classical training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Irons began his acting career on stage in 1969, and has since appeared in many West End theatre productions including The Winter's Tale, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, The Taming of the more.

Overrated over-actor. Like a thinner Brian Blessed.

171Kathryn Bernardo

She's a very boring actress. people look past her bland acting skills because she's pretty and paired up with a heartthrob. she always uses the same facial expressions and same tone of voice. I never get into the movie and shows she's in because of her poor acting.

172Lupita Nyong'o

Overrated in talent and looks. She hardly has 3 movies in her career and she has an Oscar for appearing 20 minutes on-screen. If Jennifer Lawrence is considered overrated, Lupita definitely kicked her ass.

She didn't do enough movies yet to be judged as an overrated or wannabe actress. All I can tell about her is that she's gorgeous to watch.

At least she's better looking than Jennifer Lawrence!

173Mary-Kate Olsen

She retired from acting in 2012 to work on her fashion career. Same with Ashley, but Ashley retired acting in 2004. - Anonymousxcxc

Mary kate & ashley olsen were good back in the day... better as a child because when they couldn't act back then it was cute... now al grown up & all that experience in acting and $till don't have a clue what their doing... bad acting all-around

The last time I heard something about them, it was back in 2006! Haven't heard much about them since then, are they OK?

174Ansel Elgort

This guy is extremely overrated. He comes off as egotistical.

I like his movies, but he is so egotistical.

Send me a link of him being mildly humble, oh that's right you can't. Why does he always try to be poetic.

175Leighton MeesterLeighton Marissa Meester is an American actress, singer and model. She is mostly known for her starring role as Blair Waldorf in the drama series Gossip Girl.

Talented, brilliant endearing and beautiful.

Drop dead gorgeous. Oh yes. And what an amazing vocalist

Most overrated actress ever. Do you think she can really act? No! She is horrible in gossip girl, she's an idiot, she has no talent! Seriously, Robert De Niro and she should switch places.

You're right. She's an idiot.

176Tara StrongTara Strong is a Canadian–American actress who has done work in numerous films and television series, both live-action and animated.

This is an actress that be at the very top of the list. I do not like how they give mean comments about real actors when THIS IS THE WORST PERSON IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY! She never a puts any effort into any of her characters and is only praised for being on that stupid god-awful pony show! She is the person you should hate!

Why does everyone have to put her on such a high pedestal? Can't they give other great (and more talented) voice actors/actresses a chance?

She's in every cartoon in America. She is not the best actress. Most of her characters sound the same. What disturbs me is she voiced teenage boys and babies. Creepy. She is only famous because she voices as Twilight Sparkle on MLP.

She shouldn't even be a voice actress if she can't make her voices sound EXACTLY different from each other!
