WHAT THE HELL IS JOHNNY DEPP DOING ON THIS LIST!? Ah he's amazing. But yeah paris hilton sucks, she's so lucky she has a rich dad. ARG I'll never get over johnny depp being 3rd

She can't even act in her own sex tape.

Well Paris is dumber then a rock! She has no talent at all.. She just knows how top be in the news!

She's a spoiled brat who gets everything she wants. - Catacorn

Most overrated actress ever. She brags about never having any acting lessons. Guess what? It shows! She needs to get some but I doubt if they will ever help her horrible acting even!

Its true and now she is married to Robert she is the worst person in the whole universe

She DESTROYED twilight! If I were Stephanie Meyer I would be disgusted that that personality-less, blank palette face got to play Bella

Talking about a poker face... She made twilight a challenge to watch. I can't even think that they still get her jobs in other movies...

I wish she tried a little better...no I wish she tried a LOT better on her role in twilight!

3 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus

Miley should be #1 on this list. She is terrible! Johnny Depp shouldn't be anywhere near this list. He is the my favorite actor. The man can play any role. He is amazing!

Johnny Depp? Are you crazy? Captain Jack Sparrow is one of the best I've ever seen... Whereas miley cyrus is a complete contrast of johnny depp!

Miley... Please, for your and the world's sake... STOP ACTING! And get a life! You have no talent and you're like 19 and your greatest fans are like 3 years. WHY IS JOHNNY DEPP IN THIS LIST? And Miley, get a face.

Miley, stick to music. Just don't make another Wrecking Ball.

I don't even need to give a reason!

Pfft just a loser that shouldn't even be singing on stage as well as acting on a movie!

This is exactly what the world needs to know that that the end is near. He can't sing or dance, he lip syncs, has annoying fans, and he thinks he's gangster. I could go on all day. This turd-nozzle should be #1!

He can't even sing, which is his basically his career, lest even act at all.

5 Steven Seagal Steven Seagal Steven Frederic Seagal is an American actor, film producer, screenwriter, film director, martial artist, Aikido instructor, musician, reserve deputy sheriff and entrepreneur.

Seagal is an actor? REALLY?!
Whatever. When I watch his movies it just doesn't seem like acting at all...
Always the same tough guy character...
BORING! - Condotierre

Even though Seagal can act, it's just the same thing over and over. - Nick-brick8

Steven Seagal has done way too many movies. And their all the same. Steven Seagal is stuck in the early 90's late 80's.

I don't really think that an explanation is needed.

Even Seagal is worse than Chuck Norris, and that's saying something!

6 Adam Sandler Adam Sandler

I used to think he was funny, but that was because I was in middle school. Now I think he's nothing more than a complete waste of time and money.

Seriously, how did this guy even get popular? I can understand why but in all reality, he doesn't deserve it. You know why? Because he's just another juvenile delinquent who has a bad habit of think he's funnier than we are. Not only does his films rely on the same damn formula, but they're just painful and unpleasant to watch. Sure he's made a few good movies (Hotel Transylvania and The Wedding Singer) but those are very rare and he usually comes out with a great big pile of crap. Even back in the 90s he still had some horrible movies.

I'm glad to see this guy's popularity is finally declining. I'm glad to see his fans have finally grown up and went on to find more better things than his bad taste excuses for comedies. If you're wack, you're not gonna last forever. And Adam Sandler is wack. He's gonna go in the same direction ...more

I used to think he's funny but now... I don't know what the hell I saw on this guy back in my teenage years!

He is extremely juvenile which can be funny at times but that's what most of his movies consist of. Most of his humor relies on farting, pooping, and hitting on girls. There's no subtlety in his humor and he tries way too hard to be funny that it's just painful to watch. It just baffles my mind how he's been able to grab the attention of audiences for so damn long and even have his hand and footprints on the cement walk of the TLC Chinese Theater.

It just pays to be stupid I guess.

Adam Sandler is hated for good reason, he makes terrible jokes that you swore that a money with a typewriter came up with it. Are people even laughing at him? They must be, how else would he be popular? Adam Sandler used to be just hit and miss in the 90's though, even if you didn't get his jokes you still felt like he's trying. Adam Sandler now though, you would believe that he's a humanoid robot trying to be a human but failing horribly. Every movie he's in, it seems like he's the same character, not the character he's supposed to be playing. This makes every movie he's in called a "Sandler film" even though he's not even the director, you have to call that bad acting. The plots on his movies are horrible too, but this is just about Adam Sandler, so I won't get in to that. All in all, Adam Sandler should just stop, he's made enough money for a living and he should know by now that he's not going to get any better. - PinataonSugar

I think he's kinda funny. I just think all his roles are just too similar and he should try and be a LITTLE different.

I mean he's the same guy in every film. He would be decent but yea he should try something a bit different - AlphaQ

7 Robert Pattinson Robert Pattinson

Umm really? This guy is one of the douchiest actors out there. He is an incredibly boring actor who needs to seriously consider acting classes

In total agreement with this one! Personally, I believe he should have just remained as Cedric Diggory (what a shame he was killed... But he was far more attractive). I honestly can't stand the actor nor his character in Twilight. I won't even get started on that trash! I actually liked him when I first saw him in Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire but when he chose to act in Twilight... Worst mistake ever of his acting career. I swore, by the first line he spoke I fell asleep which is only a good ten or fifteen minutes into the entire movie and by the time I woke up the credits were rolling. True story. I mean, he's just bland, not even attractive and not to mention WAY TOO overrated for that small role he plays in Twilight. Sigh, without fan girls, where would these actors be? - SheWhoLovesRamen

He should have been on the top of this list
Twilight remember me?
Come on guys pattinson deserves more votes

Nah. This douche isn't a good actor. He's pretty awful and terrible. - AlphaQ

8 Pauly Shore Pauly Shore

Pauly Shore is awful and is a terrible comedian. A friend of mine a comedian was doing comedy at a place with Pauly Shore. When both of them were waiting to go up, shore asked to leave the room. My friend got his notebook of jokes and was about to exit the room when shore told him to leave the notebook. Shore wanted to steal his jokes, that ahole.

Is this idiot still "acting"? I'd rather have my finger nails pulled off with pliers, than to ever watch 5 minutes of anything this dip is in!

Pauly Shore is entirely talentless when it comes to acting and comedy, he's some unbelievably terrible movies

He is so never going to work in Hollywood again!

9 Tommy Wiseau Tommy Wiseau Tommy Wiseau is a director, screenwriter, producer, and actor based in the United States . He is best known for The Room, which has been described by many critics as "one of the worst movies ever made" and has gained cult film status .

Oh Hai top tens. It's good, ha.

Seriously, this guy makes those people from twilight look like Humphrey Bogart. Granted he's only done 1 movie, and it was a self funded project, but come on, surely he must have thought to have taken acting lessons first?

But, as the "great" man would say, Don't worry about it.

He is a terrible actor, but his acting is of the"so bad it's good" variety. However bad our may be, people are entertained by it enough that people are still watching the movie repeatedly and talking about it after all this time. People still watch him act for fun. Nobody gets any enjoyment out of people like Hayden Christensen; there isn't even any novelty value.

His acting was so bad in "The Room" that it actually made it a movie kind of worth watching just because of how hilariously bad it is. He claims that he purposely made the movie like that, but I think that's BS, it was just bad acting. - Greedo

This guy created The Room (which from the clips I've seen of it I can infer that it sucks). - Anonymousxcxc

10 Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen is a Canadian-American actor and producer. He began his career on Canadian television at the age of 13, then diversified into American television in the late 1990s. ...read more.

His facial expression is looking like he's frozen and trying to smile. Can't show emotion. It always looks like he's breaking down, when he tries to. In Star Wars when he looked angry it was like he's a little boy who didn't get his candy. He should work on it.

Indeed. Well some of these other people aren't too bad beyond internet hype, this guy is the real deal. Can't act for toffee in anything and weakens any film he shows up in. I hated something like Jumper for example, but it probably wouldn't have been so bad had someone else been in the lead rather than this hack. His blank stare and extremely monotone voice reduces any sort of range he attempts, and his poor acting otherwise makes him look out of place in anything he's in and takes you right out of the film. Thankfully, he isn't working much anymore, so now we don't have to suffer for it. Thank God. - Mrveteran

It's sad, because the Star Wars prequels, except for him, were pretty good. If only they had picked a better actor to play Anakin/Darth Vader. Typically, when you want to have a character who loses his wife and children and turns evil, you want a lot of emotion. Christensen doesn't exactly do that in any of his films.

It's hard to act with a bad script you know.

The Newcomers

? Felicity Jones Felicity Jones
? Daisy Ridley Daisy Ridley Daisy Jazz Isobel Ridley is an English actress. She began her acting career by appearing in minor television roles, before being cast as the main protagonist, Rey, in the Star Wars sequel trilogy – first appearing in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It isn't Daisy Ridley's fault that Rey was an uninteresting character. It's Jar Jar Abrams fault. Daisy Ridley did great.

Daisy did a great job in an awesome movie... how could anyone think she wasn't good or interesting in the best movie of 2015? JJ Abrams did a tremendous job and the whole cast was so perfect... Daisy was excellent and I think she's going to kill it in episodes 8 & 9

GET HER OFF THIS LIST! She was awesome and a complete bad ass in the force awakens! 11

The Contenders

11 Keanu Reeves Keanu Reeves

Yes, Keanu Reeves. No diversity, same roles... Spewed out over and over. Plays a pretty good stoner/surfer though. But, when you put him in Dracula, with Gary Oldman, and he butchers an English accent that bad... No excuses. I mean, you can't say that he hasn't tried, but a piece of plywood could play Neo. Worst fims,
#1- whoever he was in Dracula #2- My Own Private Idaho*
Watch him butcher Shakespeare, messy Van Sant film. Decent, but mucked - zacenroe86

Keanu Reeves should be #1! Brad Pitt, is actually pretty good. And lets not forget the genius that is Nicholas Cage in "Matchstick Men" Come on!

Brad Pitt is just as bad, same ole same ole in all their roles! Although there are plenty just like these two.

He was great in Bill and Ted's excellent adventure, and he has played every role since then exactly the same. Except in Dracula where for God only knows why, the director let him try it with an accent. If I recall correctly, over half of his lines in The Matrix were questions and not longer than five words each. Until the soliloquy at the end he he never said more than two sentences in a row. That script was built for him.

The Matrix was excellent but he was just emotionless and has the Same DAMN facial expression the whole time. - AlphaQ

12 Zac Efron Zac Efron

He is so horrible he should be in the top 5. And what the hell is Johnny Depp doing on this list?!? He should be on the most genius actors ever list. This is screwed up.

All Zac can do is stand in front of a camera and look pretty. He has no talent and should be banned from acting!

I think people have misunderstood this list. It's not a list of "Actors You Hate" it's the "Worst Actors" Zac Efron sucks a lot more than Johnny Depp who isn't actually that bad. Furthermore, Lindsay Lohan would be completely awful if it weren't 4 her role in Mean Girls - TheGreatest

I don't think he knows how to act at all, he's just a sexy hunk and a decent singer. - LeiaSkywalker

13 Megan Fox Megan Fox Megan Denise Fox is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television sitcom.

Can she actually close her mouth?

Why isn't Megan Fox exclusively a porn actress? No matter what she's in, she's always grunting and breathing heavily like she's having sex anyway, and people only watch and hire her because she's hotter than hell (even if she's a putrid actor). So what's the difference between her and a porn star? Nothing.

Haters not always gonna hate, but when they do they will kill a fox, cut her pelt off and hang it by the wall of a wooden cabin.

Holy crap, why is she only at #14 yet Kristen Stewart is at #2? I mean Kristen is by no means an Oscar-worthy actress but she definitely has her moments where her acting is good and even when she sucks she at least tries. Megan Fox on the other hand is only where she is at because of her looks. She puts absolutely no effort into her acting.

Well Kristen is dull and her acting is always the same and it's awful. Megan is OKAY. Unless you talking bout Megan Trainor. - AlphaQ

14 Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie

I find her to be very annoying. If you watch her movies she's always playing roles that are tough or just likes to show off her toothpick figure and so on. I still can't believe she has won an oscar for her terrible performance in girl interrupted.

Same facial expression all the time. You got the money and contacts. Take acting lessons for crying out loud. I suppose anyone who's mom or dad are famous actors automatically are actors even if they do not have talent.
Acting school!

She is the worst crappiest, porn star quality actress... Most overrated... Hard to believe she is still allowed to make movies... The industry is losing its shirt on her too.

Rubbish! Always the same expression. Sucking her cheeks and rolling her eyes with the same knowing smile. Very annoying.

I have nothing but pure contempt for this guy's acting. He is painful and frustrating to watch. I can't imagine being a director trying to get a decent performance out of this guy. Brutal. It's truly amazing and a damn shame, that this guy has made it as an actor.

I've actually only seen him in the sorcerer's apprentice, but he made a moderately good film not worth watching. I, like, turned it off before twenty minutes because I just couldn't watch cage act like he's the greatest prodigy in the history of the world. And also,

What IS JOHNNY DEPP ON THIS LIST FOR?! All the people that say he is overrated in the comments obviously haven't seen him in absolutely anything. I mean, has anyone here even seen Pirates of the Caribbean? And if Johnny Depp is number 1 on greatest actors, then how can he be No.3 here? Everybody vote for anything below him so that he gets pushed down No.3!

I determine the effectiveness of an actor/actress by determining to what extent do they "trick" me into thinking that I am watching the character they are portraying, rather than an actor portraying a character. Mr. Cage never managed that. Not even close. Perhaps there are worse actors out there, but the fame and material compensation Mr. Cage has received for his "acting" is a stain on western civilization.

Seriously not a good actor. Some good films could have been better with a scarecrow as lead.

This is wrong. JT is awesome. I'm not a big fan of pop but there are still songs that I like by him. Every movie I've seen him in is so awesome. You guys don't know what you're talking about. Black snake moan, social network, two of my favorite movies. Alpha dog. He's awesome and you guys are just jealous. Burn.

He a good actor. I saw many movies with him and I think he portrayed his roles perfectly. It was just awkward seeing him in Friends with benefits because he seems so friendly and cheery.

Ruined every movie I've saw him in

Don't agree. He is a perfectly fine actor, and is very good in films like The Social Network for example. - Mrveteran

BRAD PITT is TALENTED! Yes god has gifted him with attractive features but The Case of Benjamin Button was by far the best compelling films of all time it takes acting ability to pull that role off. Go Brad!

Someone please please please take Brad Pitt out of this list. He's a great actor.

What in the hell is brad pitt doing on this list anyway the person who made this list is high, brad pitt is the movie he makes the movie better so what the hell, fix this list and fix it now

Yes, he can act, but sometimes pushes his luck too much with the type of characters he decides to play. Unfortunately him being handsome works against him sometimes, if he plays a nerdy/serious character. The acting doesn't suck, but him being handsome while the character is not supposed to be so make it a less congruent character sometimes.

Brad Pitt is no great actor. He's pretty. That's it.

18 Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Camille François 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.

His movies are fun to watch, and so is his acting... Just not for the right reasons. Regardless he still delivers entertainment.

The best actor in the history of the martial arts movies

Honestly, he sucks. When I see him doing the twine in those crappy movies like only in that position could he train. So overrated.

He's a great martial artist and his movies are quite entertaining, but I couldn't imagine him playing anything that isn't related to action-boom-boom-kick-punch films.

19 Taylor Lautner Taylor Lautner

Was literally the best actor in Twilight out of the main three, unfortunately that means absolutely nothing. He was the only one able to show one genuine emotion and didn't stutter through his lines, but that's because he was Taylor Lautner playing Taylor Lautner and that worked out for the role of Jacob because his personality in real life mostly fits Jacob (Mostly being the operative word because he was not good at portraying anger). But in all his other roles he's not so good. He was good in cuckoo and okay in grown ups, but the reason he works there is that nothing about his performance is supposed to be serious - he was supposed to be over the top cheesy. Right now he's alright on Scream Queens, but that's because he's forgettable - you barely ever know his character's there however it's definitely an improvement from his previous acting because unlike his fellow Twilight actors - he knows he can improve, doesn't think he's the best and stops there. I can weirdly enough actually ...more

How Taylor Lautner is not the run away leader on this list is truly shocking! His acting was so bad in the Twilight movies I could see it in the trailers for the movies without even having to watch them. I watched twenty minutes of one of the movies just to laugh at how bad his acting is. It worked for about ten minutes, but my laughter quickly turned to anger an turned it off after twenty minutes! I could take no more.

Taylor Lautner is truly the worst actor of all time. People only care about his looks and not his acting talents. Abudiction was the worst movie and so was twilight. You could tell he was acting. It was so fake.

Truly one of the worst actors I've seen! Do you find his stupid creaky voice sexy? It conveys no emotion at all.

Ick... so awful. If anyone knows the Nostalgia Critic (Doug Walker), an online movie reviewer, he has so many movies with Shaq it's not funny. For proof, go to thatguywiththeglasses.com - ethany

Yeah... Also, Nostalgia critic has only done 2 movies with Shaq, so... I don't see how that's an astonishing amount. But, yeah, Shaq used to act. Never again...

Phenominal athlete but his acting is bad....just watch scary movie 4 or shazamm
