Most Overrated Actors/Actresses

Can?t figure out what all the hype is with a particular actor? Put ?em on the list.

The Top Ten

1 Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie

Acting is staring seductively and pouting lips. If she has won an oscar there is no meaning for academy awards

She doesn't even look like a woman anymore, she's so thin and her face is so bulbous. How she ever got an oscar is beyond me because she is utterly useless in front of a camera. She needs to go back to her cute, Benetton ad family, and stop trying to act. If she was in any other line of work and performed that badly, she'd be fired fairly damn fast.

To the user who made a comment about sentence spelling. Stop being a grammar-Nazi! You're only here to give your critic about grammars ( how can you watch a movie with Angelina Jolie while you are writing on this site at the same time? ). First of all, many users on TTT are people who don't have English as their first or even second language. This is a global site in terms of users. Second, spell-check on computers is not the same all over the world ( I have to change my whole system to get English spell check because the keyboard system change as well ). And your comment about reading books is stupid. Someone who's first language isn't English usually don't read English books! Stick on your comment about the actress. It's the only thing I agree with you. Angelina Jolie is the most overrated actress of all time!

Smelly vagina even smellier acting and that's saying something.

Born into a film-oriented family, Stewart began her acting career in 1999 with uncredited roles and a minor character appearance in several films before gaining prominence in 2002 for playing Jodie Foster's daughter in the thriller Panic Room, which garnered ...read more.

She shows no emotions whatsoever! She's an overrated, mono-tone, lucky actress!

She is made outta stone! Dude no expressions AT ALL! It's like same expression when kissing and fatally injured in twilight!

I can't stand her! Terrible actress, weird-looking and she doesn't deserve the Bella role. Eeew. -

Whenever I feel like I'm the person that never smiles, I just remind myself of Kristen.

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

Can't understand how she made it in showbiz - can't sing and definitely can't act. And yeah her ass isn't that great either!

And the worst is that she is regularly regarded as "most beautiful woman" by snobs

Jennifer Lopez is a classic example of a pork snout faced "anybody" that ONLY with the wonders of plastic surgery is "now" considered ever so beautiful. Ah what it is to afford great plastic surgery...

She also has the personality/intelligence appeal of a Vaseline sandwich which is why all her ex'es dumped her in short time. Only her beastly looking hubby has remained. She does NOT have a singing voice; it's highly worked on ONLY through today's technological alterations. Observe the multiple background singers cutting in to diminish her screeching... It is her svengali's idea because she can barely act on screen. I'd be surprised if all the $$ he pumps into her presence lasts one more year. You can fool some of the people some of the time?

She is overrated, but I don't think she's overhyped for her acting anymore. I think that stopped because of Gigli. She been getting by on her looks her whole career, just like Halle Berry.

4 Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Whitney Hilton is an American businesswoman, socialite, television personality, model, actress, singer, DJ, and author .

One of the most untalented people I've ever seen. And trust me I've seen a lot. If it wasn't for her last name she wouldn't be anywhere in life.

She's a dumb person and she doesn't deserve to be famous

She ruined "House of wax" for me. Up till her death scene it was going great. That's how bad she is! I couldn't sit through her Death!

So washed out. Bad singer and actress! - missyweirdo

5 Brad Pitt Brad Pitt William Bradley "Brad" Pitt (born December 18, 1963) is an American actor and producer. He has received a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and three Academy Award nominations in acting categories and received three further Academy Award nominations, winning one, as producer under his ...read more.

Brad came to Hollywood for one reason and one reason only...to be famous. He himself was a starstruck little boy and wanted to be a BIG DEAL too. Acting was just the only way for him to get reverence. Being a good actor is not really all that important to him or Angie. They just want the publicity and the PR and the magazine covers. As soon as WE stop drooling all over pretty faces and stop buying the music and watching the movies, maybe Hollywood will bring talent back. Remember when you had to be GOOD to be a movie star? DO you think Dustin, Duvall, Dinero, Nicholson, would be able to make it in Hollywood today? No way. Not pretty enough. We do this to ourselves by what we watch and what we purchase. The Oscars are a joke! Julia Roberts? I'll never get over that one. - eljeran

Why did Troy flop at the box office? All-star cast, strong performance by Bana/O'Toole/Gleeson, amazing special effects. The problem was Brad Pitt's performance as Achilles. I don't know if I am alone on this but I thought he was awful. He has made a career off of his mug and sometimes this won't work, like with Troy. Really, his only great performances were in Fight Club and Snatch. And he was kind of funny in Inglourious Basterds. The rest, overrated.

Re:Troy. Failure at the box office indicates a lack of audience. If the performance wasn't seen, how did it turn people off? - Billyv

Everything about him is average. Acting skills included. Not that good looking and square jaws is an awful thing. I'm Asian and people here always use brad as a logo of hottest guy on earth. When I saw him for the first time I was like SERIOUSLY?!? - elletequila

He is not an overrated actor he is much more than that. he is the best

6 Robert Pattinson Robert Pattinson

Ugly and boring. Don't know what people see in him and really don't want to see any more of him.

He's robot... He can't act at all, he's boring. I can't believe he's gonna play Jeff Buckley in a biopic!

Definitely NOT attractive, very immature on screen.
Although the Twilight books & films were the worst things I've ever read/seen, so he really didn't have a lot to work with there...

Cedric Diggory RIP

7 Tom Cruise Tom Cruise Tom Cruise is an American actor and filmmaker. Cruise has been nominated for three Academy Awards and has won three Golden Globe Awards.

He is horrible! He is always the same and all he does is look mean in his movies! The man can't act!

He is not all that and a bag of chips like HE thinks he is. He has just been really lucky. He seems to be so in love with himself, what does he need Katie for, (who can't act either).

He has no personality what so ever and it shows in all of his movies like comedy whcih is meant to be funny if he did not know even in them he seems to be the same person tom cruise great actors no matter how famous they are shpuld be seen by the character there playing not the person himself and does not manage to do that. - ANT1231993

A good looker, and an enthusiastic stuntman yes, a good actor no.

8 Natalie Portman Natalie Portman Natalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship.

Her best role was when she was 10. Its been going downhill ever since. She has zero emotional range and is as monotone as ben stein. I had high hopes for her at one point, but I suppose she received too much acclaim to attempt to improve.

I liked her in "the professional" and "v for vendetta". She used to be one of my favourite actresses. But it looks like her heart stopped beating past puberty. She pretty much ruined "black swan" for me, if find her completely soulless, boring and bland; she doesn't even feel human : so perfect on every levels, she's more machine than woman. Dead inside, no emotions whatsoever. She's as flat and cold as frozen lake.
And since Keira knightley has the same looks plus a functionning circulatory system, I'll stick with her. - Spyan

One of the most overrated actresses I've ever come across. She has no technique and yet prides herself with her acting. As it happens to most fame-starved movie stars, a big EGO will never allow anyone to be a good actor. You're supposed to give your all in a performance and become your character, not play endless variations of your pretty old self.

You put her on the list? You're breaking my heart! (do you get my reference? ) - missyweirdo

9 Adam Sandler Adam Sandler

This guy is such a professional entertainer. He also uses same actors in multiple movies which makes me assume he is surrounded by friends in this typically back stabbing business. I actually knew someone who's brother was close friends with him and said he was genuine, sincere and a great friend.

This actor doesn't belong any where near this list. He is supremely funny, authentic, richly creative and cutting edge in all that he does. He is prolific and widely entertaining. He can reach a wide audience and often, does. What a great comedian, lyricist and actor.

I vote because I want to say something about him not because I think he is overrated. To me, he is an extremely amazingly talented human being, who was naturally talented but somehow just have bad choices in roles "lately". If he is ever gonna take on roles like Reign over me, Punch Drunk Love and let's not forget Big Daddy, 50 first dates,... I think I'm just gonna fall in love with his acting all over again. Many said that he is "over his time" but that doesn't mean he is "over his talents' I know he'll be back. You can say all you want haters but the sensation when I watch his GOOD movies (like I mentioned above) will NEVER fade away.

He is 18, below people like Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep? what is wrong with the world!

10 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.

Terrible actress. She's hot, sure, but that doesn't change the fact that her acting in the Transformers movies varies from cringe-worthy to just plain embarrassing.

I agree, Personally, being a teenage boy, I am not attracted to her in any way, she looks too much like a Barbie doll

There are only 3 words that describe her - stupid, ugly, and talentless. I'm a boy but I don't understand why people think she is hot.

Oh my god she is so washed out now - missyweirdo

The Contenders

11 Leonardo DiCaprio Leonardo DiCaprio

Same thing every movie, same expressions, same tone, same, same, same. So overrated. Looks only get you so far, unfortunately too far.

Actually no. His acting is usually different from Wolf of Wall Street to Inception it's VERY hard to find similar acting. - AlphaQ

Is he really ranked above Nicholas Cage right now? And in Titanic his character is supposed to speak that way. He shouldn't be screaming or whispering to Rose the whole time. This guy in The Departed, Wolf of Wall Street, Gangs of New York, Blood Diamond, and The Aviator he is an amazing actor who uses awesome accents. Especially in Blood Diamond with the African accent. Great Actor who is not overrated.

Overrated, really looks like he's trying too hard. The Gangs Of New York was overrated anyway but he made it worse with all the charisma of a digestive biscuit. And no chemistry with his leading lady.

That's because the leading lady in Gangs of New York was Cameron Diaz. Cameron Diaz - sablo123

Leonardo Dicpario is an amazing actor. He is beautiful and deserves every prize he won. he is an amazing actor

12 Ben Affleck Ben Affleck

This is a highly intelligent creative pioneer. Absolutely love him

Don't know why this actor is so unpopular to many people. He's not a bad actor and he can play very diverse characters. Never saw a movie of him where he is acting badly ( there are some movies with him that are less good but that's not his fault ). Doesn't deserve all the bad comments and critics.

Clearly one of the best actors of our generation and then some. Besides acting, he has a stunning resume which includes writing directing and producing. Some are spoiled when they find success at such a young age. Not so for this phenomenon. He has no competition and can literally play just about any role. He is funny, endearing, tough, honest and no nonsense. I rest assured, whenever I go to a movie that features him I any capacity, that I will be entertained, intrigued and never, ever bored. So grateful for this multi talented performer.

He is hated because he is a bad actor and he gets love because of his ability to directed films. He has 0 oscar nominations for acting and plays characters that are not originally.

I think what happened with Jennifer is that she had the greatest publicist of all time. For years, I have been trying to figure out why people say she is so gorgeous and talented. I thought that surely there is something wrong with me. No there is something wrong with everyone else. Jennifer is not pretty at all people! Nor is she a talented actress. She's only good for romantic comedies that flop. What a hack. - kekebaby06

One of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood. A very plain looking, boring character. For the life of me, I just don't understand why she gets so much publicity?

Half the actresses in Hollywood are more talented and certainly more
Beautiful then aniston... Lucky girl great publicist... Put one over
On Hollywood... Brad alluded to the fact that being married to her wasn't
What people thought it was... Imagine as boring as she is.

Whiny, shameless, bland. If you're more well known for your haircuts and failed relationships than anything else, well, I guess at least she is rich.

14 Matthew Mcconaughey Matthew Mcconaughey Matthew 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 ...read more.

Talk about one of the dullest performers of all time, I am surprised he didn't make an appearance in twilight.

So many bad actors and only one vote! I'm voting for Matty because I watch some movie he did with Kate Hudson (another gem of an actor) and I don't think he wore a shirt in the entire movie. - Ok Matt. We get it. You have muscles. Congratulations. But Matty, showing off muscles doesn't make you an actor. In fact, you can be a great actor and not have muscles. I. E. - Paul Newman, Philip Seymore Hoffman... Viggo Mortensen.

Not sure why Brad Pitt is hated so much. Did anyone see him in "Burn After Reading"? He played a moron pretty well. Geez I hope he was acting... - corebare32

His ridiculous, overdone, trying-too-hard speech mannerisms make me want to kick him in the teeth until he can pronounce the letter "s" without whistling it on purpose. He must think that makes him sexy, so he does it all the time. Once you pick upon it it's just obvious and completely pulls you out of whatever you are watching with this buffoon in it. And he can't really act. He just does Matthew Mcconaughey ALL THE TIME. Incredibly annoying douchebag. He should limit himself to underwear commercials, he'd be spot on in those, because we wouldn't have to look at his dumbass face.

Alright alright alright! Stop being dull, and making me want to cover my ears already!

16 Keanu Reeves Keanu Reeves

If I were a woman, I'd fall for your looks, if I were a movie director, you'd never get hired.

One of my favorite actors. He has taken on so many different roles and imbued them each with unique characteristics that define them I the most interesting way.

He is at best a mediocre actor, I think the best performance he turned out was in The Day the Earth Stood Still which reminded me of Arnold Schwarzenegger in T2 where they both had to play an alien/cyborg respectively and they didn't have to worry about 'appearing' human. Reeves comes across as a very cardboard actor who lacks any ability to play any other role than the rookie/west coast surfer type/naive newcomer. The only travesty is that I'm unable to think of a 'bad' film he's been in!

He was good in Bill & Ted. - Rambles

17 David Caruso

Oh my god people are so harsh to judge other actors before you write something on this page first take a look at your self it is not nice to belittle people and that of actors who make more money than you and I any ways getting back to David Caruso he was awesome in Jade what a great detective he made and his acting was flawless in every way. And.C.S.I. Miami. He loves the camera in a different way to portray a good cop and has a lot of meaning behind it. Thanks. For everything David. Keep up the good work

Awful. Oh my God is he bad.

What would he do without sunglasses?

Caruso is genuinely talented... in a single type of role. Well a single role actually. That's quite limiting but still better than many hacks on this list.

18 Nicholas Cage

Fabulous actor with passion and intelligence.

What an impressive resume. Absolutely the best there is.

He's known for his brilliance. He is exciting and convincing and passionate in each and every role.

Not a "bad" actor per se, but his latter day filmography is full of crap. He still has a sizable cult following because of his more successful and memorable 1980's and 1990's films.

19 George Clooney George Clooney George Timothy Clooney is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work as an actor and two Academy Awards, one for acting and the other for producing.

Drop dead gorgeous and oozing charisma. Love to watch him. He was amazing in "The Descendants"

Charming and intelligent as all get out. What a cool guy. The most handsome actor that ever was

This actor is richly authentic in every role he has ever taken on. He is believable and understated when that is what is called for. He is a gracious actor who makes his costars shine, as well. I'm so grateful for every movie he has ever entertained us with.

Great actor great in Oceans 11
