The 10 Worst Young Actors


The Top TenXW

1Jesse EisenbergJesse Adam Eisenberg is an American actor, author, playwright, and humorist. He made his television debut with the short-lived comedy-drama series Get Real.

I have started to watch The Social Network twice, but stopped after a couple of minutes, because Eisenberg is so annoying. Thought I would give it a third try, but decided to watch the trailer first. Had to stop that as well because Eisenberg just sounds and looks and feels like an idiot...

I was going to see the new Superman and batman movie until I noticed jesse Eisenberg was in the movie. I don't understand why Hollywood insist on using this actor in any movie. I refuse to watch the movie for that reason alone. You might as well have Jonah Hill play superman. Because that would make more sense being as Jesse Eisenberg plays lex luthor. Will Smith would be a better Lex Luthor. Or even Tom hanks. SO THANK YOU JESSE FOR RUINING THE MOVIE FOR EVERYONE!

Totally one dimensional. Lack of skill, and (surely? ) a lack of awareness of his shortcoming. Clearly has important friends, to the point one might assume someone important has an agenda to keep him on stage. He is so bad. I sometimes see his name on a movie I want to watch, then skip it. I'm pretty sure his brain is made of wet cake. He's probably, like most folk, a pretty decent person, I obviously don't know him so can't say. But I wish he'd do that thing any smart person would do when they get rich, just get out of the limelight, Jesse. Go and live. You're so lucky to have what you have, so so lucky man. Forget the attention. Let creative, talented people make movies and enjoy your good fortune outside of everyone else's line of sight.

No words for this specimen

Jesse Eisenberg is a horrible actor. What he does isn't even acting. The only reason he's famous is his "background".

He should stick to the cheesy teen fairy-tale movies and STOP trying to sing.. Also I'm sick of hearing about how hot he is! He looks apish, like some part human, part animal creature that lives in a cave, especially with that dumb, vacant look on his face all the time.

I feel bad for him because of what Kristen Stewart did to him

How did he even get his first job?

4Jonah HillJonah Hill Feldstein, professionally known as Jonah Hill, is an American actor, producer, and comedian.

Who decided this guy has a funny bone in his body? I'd rather watch people getting high on periscope than any of his garbage movies. He must have a relative in showbiz. He's just horrible. I repeat horrible. It's a sad day when we have this loser punk instead of the likes of Rodney Dangerfield or Bill Murray. What happened to comedy?

Yeah he got in as the token fat guy. He's just an unfunny brat with no talent.

He is absolutely the worst actor I've ever seen

Superbad was a hilarious movie!...That's it...

5Zac Efron

Just saw his first couple of "serious movies" at any price, the paperboy, and the lucky one and each one sucked and his performance in each one was horrible

Pretty good at looking good. He'll never do Shakespeare though

At least with his looks, I can understand why he gets put on the screen...these other ones though...

6Shia LabeoufShia Saide LaBeouf is an American actor, performance artist, and director who became known among younger audiences as Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens.

I can't stand him on screen. He was the most annoying thing in transformers 2,3. His antics off screen make him look even worse.

In all honesty, the 4th Indiana Jones movie might have been a lot better without Shia.

How come that Hollywood don't realized that Shia can't act, stop waisting money paying him.

This is such bull. He can act. Watch Lawless, Disturbia, and Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 & 2. He shined.

7Jaden Smith

He's a brick wall, but if he were cast to play a brick wall, he'd still collapse from a lack of talent. He's also dumb as a brick. His parents did such a wonderful job filling his head with crap, that if you were to ask him which hand was his left hand, he would respond, "Yeah, that's cool, but that's just labels. I don't label things, because that's a conspiracy against the greater truth, like, like, like totally, uh made up (looks at Will), by the Thetans."

I'm happy to see that jaden smith made the list. He's should just go to college or better yet live off his fathers money for the rest of his life and spare the world of his terrible acting and music. Time better served.

Watching his lackluster performance in "After Earth" was more than I could endure. It was as if he had never been in front of a camera before.

There's nothing else to say other than he's terrible

8Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal definitely shouldn't be on this list. Have you seen Enemy, Southpaw, Nightcrawler, Jarhead, Prisoners, or Brokeback Mountain? He most definitely can act.

I actually like him. He's been good in a lot of bad movies. He just needs some more good parts. This guy has got the goods.

Jake gyllenhaal is turning out to be one of the finest actors ever. Take a look at his recent work.

9Daniel RadcliffeDaniel Jacob Radcliffe is an English actor who rose to prominence as the title character in the Harry Potter film series.

I for one think he's humble and a good actor. One of the more believable ones

Not a bad actor. Horns was actually watchable. I don't know about that Frankenstein movie though.

He's finished now after potter finished - gvats

10Chloe MoretzChloƫ Grace Moretz is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2004 at the age of seven, and her first award nomination came the following year for The Amityville Horror.

This girl can act. She just does the wrong movies. She should be in porn.

Can't stand her presence, look & terrible acting. Lots of bad young actors these days, she's definitely one of the very worst.

She just can't act. She may be pretty but she's a hog for movie roles and is so self centered

I mainly just recognize her as hit girl, she's not bad, she's mainly just eye candy for us guys lol

12Ross LynchRoss Shor Lynch is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and musician. He is one of the founding members of the pop rock band R5. As an actor, he is known for his debut role as Austin Moon on the Disney Channel original series Austin & Ally, and for his role as Brady in Disney Channel's Teen Beach more.

Ross Lynch drives me to the point of insanity with his arrogant, over the top personality. I cannot watch anything he's in and I am clueless as to why he has so many fans... they're all 11 year old girls though. It's like- you're not the center of the universe and if it weren't for your dumb ass show on Disney no one would know who you were!

No clue who this even is. So I can't say she should be on this list.

13Michael Cera

No, no, no--Cera can act and he's a funny guy. Eisenberg though, is a movie killer; every scene is disrupted by his own personality rather than the character he should be portraying.

He is the exact same as Jesse Eisenberg... seriously they both play that socially awkward guy with the exact same annoying voice in EVERY PART!
