Top Ten Worst Actors

21ShaqShaquille Rashaun O'Neal, nicknamed Shaq, is a retired American professional basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA.

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 - 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

He was horrible in Kazaam.

22Kevin Costner

Terrible actor cast in some really good movies. Could you imagine how good some of these would have been with a good actor. Kevin, you fooled Hollywood for years. You're a lucky man. They should have told you years ago, "don't quit your day job."

He was great as the dead body in The Big Chill... one of my all-time favourite movies. Dances with Wolves was good. No Way Out was one of my favourite thrillers as a teenager. JFK was good. However, it has been a long, long, long time that he did anything of the same caliber as these. Yet... somehow, he still continues to get roles! He must have hacked e-mails from some movie producers in his safe!

Not awful, but very wooden. I remember in The Bodyguard where Whitney Houston (the singer) was much better than you would expect, while Costner (the actual actor here) was far worse than you would expect. Says it all really, doesn't it? - Mrveteran

Pretentious douche that stars in movies that are about 4782857294 hours long no talent no good looks sucks in every category

But... He was good in SpongeBob SquarePants!

He's hilarious

24Tom GreenMichael Thomas "Tom" Green is a Canadian actor, rapper, writer, comedian, producer, director, talk show host, and media personality.

I do not recall Tom ever stating that he was a great actor. He is what he is and has never tried to be a anything else. You either love him or hate him. I don't think he cares either way.

Tom green, you make me want to throw up my spleen, such a god awful actor, if you could call him that. Liam might not agree

Tom green is the poster child burnout, retarded, wast of a movie roll budget

Don't even get me started on this guy.

25Beyonce KnowlesBeyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

Her movies are awful and she is insanely stuck-up. She is an overrated singer and actress. If it weren't for her daddy she wouldn't be famous at all.

She's trash, No Talent and extremely overrated as an artist. Just watch her movies and you will see that

Well I agree. I saw her in one movie and I didn't think she was good. to be a good actress or actor you have to convince me that you are this character. I've seen so many actors play a role, and I really liked their character. then they stared in some movie and I really believed they were that character. the point is, I didn't believe that she was the character. I just saw her as beyonce. and that's not good.

Man...just how did people like her get so famous?

26Julia RobertsJulia Fiona Roberts is an American actress and producer. She became a Hollywood star after headlining the romantic comedy Pretty Woman, which grossed US$464 million worldwide.

I don't think she's one of the greatest actresses of all time but I don't think she's one of the worst either.
She has some limits in her acting skills ( every role she plays does has more or less the same style ) and I believe that this actress is just too overrated. She's just an ok actress ( maybe a little more better than certain actresses ) but nothing special. In the looks departement however she's really overrated. They try to tell us that she's some kinda of femme fatale but in reality she's too ugly to be in that category. One of the most overrated actresses, that's for sure but one of the worst actresses, I doubt it. Too many other actresses are way more badly in their acting than she is.

The big joke is when they cast her as a beautiful woman. Not!

Totally Over-Rated, she's Pretty Woman in all her roles.

Not talented, almost as untalented as Sandra Bullock (All About Steve, Gravity)

27Orlando BloomOrlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom is an English actor. After having his breakthrough as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he rose to fame by further appearing in epic fantasy, historical epic, and fantasy adventure films.

Orlando Bloom? Worst actor? ARE you KIDDING ME! His portrayal as Legolas in Lord of the Rings was sensational! Then Will Turner in Pirates of the caribbean! This man should be on the BEST actors of all time!

Orlando Bloom is an epic actor, and still improving! He was awesome in the Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Three Musketeers, all of them! He doesn't deserve to be on this list. One of my favorite actors of all time.

Are you guys for real? Orlando is the most amazing actor EVER. Whoever put him on here just get off.

28Lindsay LohanLindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.

Forget the drug problems look at the acting problems. Her co-stars always out act her badly and their usually not great actors that she works with. Mean Girls was okay but her acting in that was bellow average and it really takes away from the movie any young actress could have easily been in that movie and delivered a equal or better performance. Shes not 1/4 the actress she thinks she is and shes overrated. Almost all her movies are garbage but the idiotic image obsessed media acts like shes this amazing actress witch really bugs me. Their are actresses out there still trying to make it who might never because there not as attractive (like Lindsey is shes not half as hot as she thinks) but have more talent in there pinkey than this poser has in here entire druged out body. Lindsey should be the international symbol for mediocrity shes that bad. What makes me even angrier is that she falls into the whole "talented but troubled" category that every no talent loser in Hollywood is ...more - Chris-1

Wow! Her trying Elizabeth Taylor's accent is terrible. She is not an actress just a tabloid queen.

Her fame and fortune is lost because she lost her talent when growing up. A child / teen actress that was good and promising but when she became older she didn't work on her acting skills anymore ( her party life was more important than her professional life ) and lost her acting abbilities. She is not even famous anymore ( only famous for gossip mags and sites ) and she will never be able to make a come-back anymore. A finished actress.

Here it is... The irrepressible, Lindsey Lohan! Need I say more?

29Gillian AndersonGillian Leigh Anderson is an American-British film, television and theatre actress, activist and writer.

The most arrogant actress in Hollywood. She thinks of herself that she is one of the greatest talented actresses of all time because she won some awards. But time has proven that she's not that talented and that her winning awards were in fact not deserved. Now that people finally realize this fact, suddenly she's ( in a very arrogant and capricious way ) mad at the whole movie industry. It's maybe better for herself that she admid that she hasn't any or little talent and just fade away so that people doesn't have to see or read about her anymore.

She should not be on this list. She has done some good work.

I disagree I reckon she is ok and does a good job in the bbc show the fall. definitely worse actors out there

She thinks she is too good for Hollywood.

Gilliam Scully Anderson your name is arrogance. Stay in London SOB and never come back.

The American producers hate you and you know why.

Journey to the center of the earth, furry vengeance? Are you kidding me, the only funny movies this guy has been is that one with sean astin where he has no lines and is dressed up as a caveman, and the YouTube video of his retard clap at the oscars!

Branden Fraser caters to those fewer and far between adults who still consider adventure movies without nudity, sex and foul language a virtue. believe it or not we are still out there.

Had a great role in The Quiet American next to Michael Caine

He isn't bad, this list is in bad shape Orlando bloom is way better that Lindsey lohan!

31Chuck Norris

Oh my god. What torture turning on the T.V. and seeing Walker Texas Flipping Ranger or one of his movies where he jumps and flips around like a Mexican jumping bean. What the hell and then he tries to sing his own theme song. You talk about nails on a chalk board. Then you see him with that old grey hair dyed so badly on an infomercial with his wife who is like a baby compared to his old self and you want to puke up your last meal. Chuck you suck more than Bob Denver and the entire Gilligan's Island cast put together. Please Karate chop your self out of existence cause the world can't take much more. Hey how about you volunteer to do a Delta Force on that new terrorist group ISIS. If you make them watch your show Walker Texas Ranger and a few of your movies they will cut off their own GD heads to make it stop.

Bruce Lee kicked his ass, why does he get all the credit? Bruce Lee is the real badass

I don't know why everyone considers him to be tough he just seems like a loser that can't act for his life, the roles he gets are tough guy roles that doesn't say anything about him he is nothing but a bad acting right wing conservative narcissistic idiot.

32Ben Affleck

This guy is living poof that you don't need talent to make it big. You just need the right people pushing your way for you. I tell you from the first time I saw this guy in Dazed and Confused and I don't mean the Led Zeppelin song. I knew he was going to someday make it really far in Horriblewood. He didn't even need fellow Bostonian Matt Damon helping him get over on everyone cause the executives in Horriblewood were primed waiting for someone like him without a shred of talent that they could mold into a block buster fool like this guy. Everything he does is suspect cause of his lack of talent it just goes to show that old saying is true," It's not who you know it's who you", well you can figure it out. If you actually think this guy can act then I know which one you have been doing also. Well anyway this guy sucks more than Sean Penn's brother did in all his scenes in Super Troopers.

Doesn't deserve all the bad critics. The ones who are giving him critics are always the ones who comes with the same arguments ( Gigli and Batman ). He did some bad movies ( but not bad acting performances ) but he did a lot of good movies with very outstanding performances. Very talented!

In plenty of horrible movies. He still acts though. The people who signed him never saw Gigli. - booklover1

People thing the dark night was one of the the best movies of all time so he is a great actor

33Marion Davies

Extremely dull and monotonous acting. Marion is the worst thing that happened to Hollywood. Should have been number 1.

Just because Kirsten Dunst played the role of Marion Davies in the movie " The cat's meow " some people suddenly thinks she was a great actress. Most of her temporaries were more talented and iconic than she was. For instance ; Louise Brooks.

Who the hell is she? I only know her by name but I never saw a movie with her and I'm sure that 80% of people never did either.

34Rob Schneider

Should be MUCH, MUCH higher than this. He's terrible.

I sooo hate him you rarely see him in any movies and when you do He has so little lines and he still act's horrible

The only movie I like a bit of him is Deuce Bigalow European Gigolow.

35Matthew McConaugheyMatthew David McConaughey is an American actor and producer. He first gained notice for his breakout role in the coming-of-age comedy Dazed and Confused, and went on to appear in films such as the slasher Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, the legal thriller A Time to Kill, Steven Spielberg's more.

Brings every movie he is in to a complete standstill with his hollow, grandstanding, all bark and no bite characterizations that are all one and the same. He is intolerable!

Good actor when the movie fits his " mannerisms ". Otherwise he's very dull and boring to watch.

Agree completely. Here is a star that simply cannot act, despite all of the opportunities that he is given.. I couldn't believe the moron who cast him as Benjamin Franklin in Amistad (1997)... it made the movey convert to a Disney production. He should take the money and run!

Great movies, just a crappy actor

I love your acting, but seriously, you don't need to scream like a Guinea pig! For example, "Hey! I'm Gumball! Listen to my annoying voice while your ears bleed! " I'm sorry, Jacob, but I like Logan Grove better.

I like his acting in Gumball, but maybe you're getting too old for the part. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

37Jennifer LopezJennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

I do not know why she continues to get work, she does the same character in all of them, and how she got a job to critique wanna be singers when she herself is a studio singer, plus now she seems to just be forcing her (unattractive) children on the public... Worst actress she is her number should be higher...

All her movies are the same! She's not versatile and her voice seems to have little emotion.

She looks, talks and acts the same in all her movies. I don't know if I'm watching Selena or Gigli when I'm switching channels.

Worst person in hollywood! Go back to Mexico FREAK! She doesn't belong in america!

38Rose McGowan

Breathy! So breathy! If it weren't for sighing and rolling eyes, what else would she have left to act with?!?!

Definitely up there with the worst (using the word actor very loosely) actors of all time. How she got past auditions I'll never know. Obviously a case of "who you know not what you know" when it comes to this lack of talent.

I wouldn't watch anything with her in, awful, awful actor.

Terrible, terrible, terrible actress!

Sunglasses on, sunglasses off, sunglasses on, sunglasses off, vomit on my shirt. - Ravergirl

He's a total disaster. I hate CSI and it's mostly cause of him. How can they cast the guy?!

Someone on SFGate brilliantly commented that his is a variation on the William Shatner method of acting.

He is why I stopped watching CSI.

Salman the worst actor ever in Hindi cinema. Grand Old fellow still wants to act like a teen age boy
