The Top Ten

1 Marlon Brando Marlon Brando Marlon Brando, Jr. was an American actor, film director, and activist. He is credited with bringing a gripping realism to film acting, and is often cited as one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time.

His arrogance and his voice make me ill...

I am shocked at how difficult he is despite being in the best movies of all time.

I don't like him as an actor. the ONLY good movie is the godfather.

2 Qwyneth Paltrow

What a twit. Keep your pompous arrogant mouth shut for once in your privileged life.

She thinks she's brilliant but most of what spews from her mouth is ignorant drivel.

Only got a brake because of mum and dad

She will not be an iron woman, Ha

3 Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen

Poor Charlie...aliens sucked out his brain.

4 Val Kilmer Val Kilmer Val Edward Kilmer is an American actor. Originally a stage actor, Kilmer became popular in the mid-1980s after a string of appearances in comedy films, starting with Top Secret!

Leave poor Val alone. He's gotten old and fat.

5 Katherine Heigl Katherine Heigl

Who publicly puts down the people writing a show that made you a star! Really!

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

Pretty much an idiot

7 Edward Norton Edward Norton Edward Harrison Norton is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has been nominated for three Academy Awards for his work in the films Primal Fear, American History X and Birdman.

Surprised to see him on this list.

An ounce of pretention is worth a pound of manure! Who does this guy think he is? I can't STAND actors like this! Hey Ed, you're playing dress up, not curing cancer!

8 Bette Davis Bette Davis Ruth Elizabeth "Bette" Davis (April 5, 1908 – October 6, 1989) was an American actress of film, television and theater.

9 Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie is an American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian. She has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. She has also been cited as Hollywood's highest-paid actress. ...read more.

Jennifer Aniston is NOT a pretty woman. Her career really took off after the whole Brad/Angelina affair. Sort of like how Nicole Kidman's did when she and Cruise split.

Homewrecker. I don't see why people say she's beautiful... Jennifer Aniston is real and BEAUTIFUL

Has been actress. Stick to adopting kids, everyone is tired of you.

Gorgeous, amazing, talented and brilliant actress and humanitarian. All the hate can be ascribed solely to her unique and sustained beauty. no one compares! 1

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

It's not that hard to work with Megan Fox, but working with J. Lo is the hardest thing to do because one time she stole one the producer's wallet! Better hold on to my pockets!

You can't even look at her when she's on set, we where all asked to look away anytime she enters our area!

I know someone who worked with her and said she was absolutely the worst person to work with. Total diva and rude to the staff. You weren't even allowed to look in her direction when she walked by.

A has been. She only became something because of the movie Selena. I avoid all movies with her

The Contenders

11 Mel Gibson Mel Gibson

Has a hot temper and likes to smoke and drink...

Needs to be medicated.

12 Dustin Hoffman Dustin Hoffman Dustin Lee Hoffman is an American actor and director with a career in film, television, and theatre since 1960. He has been known for his versatile portrayals of antiheroes and vulnerable characters.

Would not spend my last dime to see him... But he is OK. One of the better actors from the 70's.

13 Christian Bale Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

he always must have his way even though the director is the one who makes the choices and his attitude SUCKS! Listen to what he said to a staff member in the film of Terminator Salvation on Youtube. - PePsMeX

Bale is an arrogant, talentless clown. If I were the grip that he yelled at, I would have called his punk-ass out and physically destroyed him. In fact, I would have taken great satisfaction in making him apologize. His movies suck, his attitude sucks, and he sucks. Two words: Terminator Salvation! He couldn't even act a part that was specifically created for him. In summary: huge ego-small acting ability!

He didn't want Robin to be in the Batman series because it would take away the darkness of the films he threatened to not play Batman if they put Robin in and I don't blame him, putting in Robin would take away the dark theme to the new Batman film series - roblist

I don't think its very profesionel to holler at the labor like that

14 Meryl Streep Meryl Streep Mary Louise "Meryl" Streep is an American actress. Cited in the media as the "best actress of her generation", Streep is particularly known for her versatility in her roles, transformation into the characters she plays, and her accent adaptation.

Dustin Hoffman said in an interview about the movie " Kramer VS Kramer " that Meryl Streep was a real pain in the ass to work with. She wants Always to change the script, telling orders to actors, no-actors and even the director. Many say that she's some kind of snob who thinks that a movie is " HER " movie just because she's in it.

Huge ego. No humility. Acts as if she cured cancer, when all she's done is play pretend for tons of $

Insufferable!

16 Judy Davis

Horrible bitch on the set sabotages all others... Avoid!

Saw how she tormented River Phoenix

Just sued someone publication for $140,000 because they called her heartless and other things she didn't like. She's a foot faced moon cricket anyway. Who cares what she thinks.

Read somewhere that she stated River Phoenix "deserved to die" b/c of drug usage. What a cruel heartless excuse for a human!

17 Sean Young Sean Young Mary Sean Young (born November 20, 1959) is an American actress. Her film appearances include Stripes, Blade Runner, Dune, No Way Out, Wall Street and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective among many others.

She'll be the least-known actress on the list, but she can only thank herself for that. After starring in "No Way Out" and "Stripes", apparently Young thought she was the second coming of Bette Davis. She walked off sets, threw tantrums, yelled at co-stars, grips, assistants, make-up artists, extras, (you get the picture). Apparently she pissed off the wrong person and was never heard from again. - corebare32

She had an affair with james woods, and after it ended she would NOT LET GO, stalked him, THAT'S the wrong person she pissed off.

She dressed up as Catwoman and forced Tim Burton to give her the part. She still didn't get it. - BeatlesFan1964

19 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.

Don't invite her to your party. Her ego won't fit through your front door.

May be difficult to work with but at least she is pretty (Meryl Streep ew! Snap).

20 Steven Segal

He's unfunny un talented, a bully (example: he likes to kick stuntmen in their privates if they do a stunt he can't do). He's a lire, a sexiest, he has a habit of founding and harrasing the females on the sets. If you prove to be be better or to laugh at him you get bullied or fired (a stunt man (who was at least twice Seagals age) choked him out causing him to crap his pants after Seagal challenged him, he fired the entire crew that saw this, and had a gag order placed on the crew).

Jewish attitude. As long as the money keeps coming she's happy. But everything else she despizes ( she don't care about her fans, has a snob attitude towards others in real life because she thinks that everybody should kiss her feets because she's famous and you're not, arrogant, stuck up, doesn't have respect towards the people she works with. She's in the wrong business if you can't handle everything what comes along when you're a celebrity. I can't stand her personality!

Scarlet fights with every director and movie she is in and does not want to be photographed then why are you in movies?

She doesn't care about fans. She just care for the money.

Nothing wrong with her.
