Top Ten Worst Actors

The Top TenXW

1Paris Hilton

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!

Yup shahrukh should be number 1

2Miley 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.

Nasty attitude just nasty person

3Kristen Stewart

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...

She ruined twilight. It could have been a reasonable movie series to watch, but I had a lot of trouble getting past her lack of acting. How is she not #1?

4Justin Bieber

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!

Well of course he's not a good actor he has no experience.

5Steven Seagal

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

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.

Steven seagal is lame. He continues to embarrass martial arts and fitness with terrible technique. He's not only a fake professional, he looks like dog the bounty Hunter. I wouldn't piss on a fire to save a soulless douche who panders people by race. South park roasted his ass last week. He is Fat sack No talent wannabe. Get out the airwaves and hibernate.

6Robert 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

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

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

Oh hai you shovel faced emotionless bastard

7Adam 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.

Happy Gilmore and the waterboy are classic comedies but his newer stuff sucks. Both grown ups, jack and Jill, that one were he's in love with Jennifer Aniston, don't remember it's name, it's just it's getting extremely repetitive and just terribly unfunny

Get him off this list he is amazing no matter what!

8Keanu 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.

Keanu Reeves is terrible. Plain and simple. Robert Pattinson shouldn't be on the list (and this is coming from a guy) because his performance in The Rover was fantastic and he's obviously got acting chops, he was just in Twilight so he got a bad wrap. I don't quite understand why Brad Pitt is on the list. At all. Has anyone even seen 12 Monkeys, Inglorious Basterds or Snatch? Adam Sandler is a close second but he was good in more than one movie, Keanu Reeves wasn't, and he just had to say things in a mysterious voice and dodge CGI bullets. I guess he was good in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, but I'm not sure if he knew people were filming him.

Oh he is the worst

9Pauly 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!

Just watch Bio-dome. Tell me you aren't scarred.

Should never ever have been an actor!

10Hayden Christensen

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.

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.

Say what you want to hurt Hayden for being a bad actor, he's actually an underrated actor and did most of the good performing in Revenge of the Sith. You people ought to be shamed of your selves.

Get him off this list! Hayden is amazing and he does show emotion!

11Tommy Wiseau

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.

Depps 3rd and Wiseau's only down at 59?! This is sick and wrong. Search youtube for The Room clips and judge again.

You're tearing me apart, Lisa!

12Zac 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

Yah he is a terrible actor he's acing is to cheesy and unrealistic wise. Only reason why he is in movies because of his looks

13Angelina 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.

Angelina jolie is kind of annoying in some ways and she acts like she is better than everyone else

14Megan Fox

Can she actually close her mouth?

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.

I think Megan Fox would be better at closing her mouth compared towards her future arch-rival from the fictional (but can be real) Mario franchise named King Bowser who should kidnap Amy Rose causing Pac-Man to rescue her with Rush (from Mega Man) as his ally to save Amy Rose from King Bowser Koopa.

Amy Rose will be 5'10", Rush will be 6'8", King Bowser Koopa (her future teammate at The Amazing Race: Canada as Team "Canadian Red") whilst Pac-Man will be 6-2".

What? What the flying fluff are you talking about? I don't get this comment. At all. And what does Megan Fox have to do with all of that? - smrpg1996

Horrible. Just horrible. The only reason she is allowed in movies is because she is pretty. No talent whatsoever

15Justin Timberlake

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

He's a bad actor period. He's a great performer and singer, but in life not everybody is cut out to be a actor. He's acting is below average.

16Nicolas Cage

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.

I find his acting too cheesy like his always yelling and is over doing his role. Such as his part in National Treasure he's so loud and obnoxious.

17Brad Pitt

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

Just because you are supposedly good looking does not make you a great actor

Just because someone is good looking you should not be prejudiced against him. Please leave your jealousy when commenting here. Brad is a good actor and is good looking too. Does this combo seem so impossible?

Why the hell is he on here he was nominated for a Oscar.

18Jean-Claude Van Damme

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.

Good films little bit brutal for me

19Taylor Lautner

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.

Even his co-stars have admitted he was the weakest link in the Twilight films when it came to acting - which he still isn't unless you're in denial. The last Twilight movie has a scene in which Pattinson laughs behind Taylor's back at his horrid line delivery - and the director didn't even cut it from the film.

Should be number 1 worst actor all time

20Ashton Kutcher

When he played Kelso on That 70's show I thought he was funny, and maybe even a good actor playing an incredibly stupid character. But after you see him on a talk show you realize that Kelso may actually be smarter than this talking monkey and wife who could be his mom.

Need I say More! It seems like everyone has said almost everything that is wrong with this useless excuse for an actor! Oh why am I kidding my self that isn't even the half of it! The guy is just a crappy actor to start with and it feels like every time I See him on T.V. Trying to act serious I just can't take him serious. This guy will always be known as that retarded kid from that 70's show. I honestly don't understand why he is so famous! The guy has not done any thing remotely watchable since that 70's show! It just blows My Mind! Bottom Line A Huge Stinker Douche Bag!

If it wasn't 6ft2 or w/e tall height he is, no1 would ever notice this loser. When I look at him, all I see is his height and retarded face expressions he makes. When I look at i.e. Liam Neeson or Kevin Kline, I don't see their height at all cause they have so many other qualities at their side. There's so many guys like that Kutcher dude, they're just not 6ft2... He should be number 2 on this list if you ask me. Christopher Lambert should be number 1.

Terrible terrible actor he can't act. That's why viewer ratings dropped on Two and A half Men when he replaced Charlie Sheen
