Most Overrated Actors and Actressesheather Can't figure out what all the hype is with a particular actor? Put 'em on the list.
The Top Ten
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.
I just can't see where she is attractive, horrible thin jaw /neck, lips look fake ahhh! - gruppenfuhrerV 238 Comments
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. -
Yeah, does she have one emotion? - kaisietooV 218 Comments
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.V 104 Comments
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!
She's not an actress whatV 72 Comments
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 - missyweirdoV 30 Comments
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
To Billyv, failure at the box office doesn't mean a lack of audience. It means that the film failed to get the success that the makers wanted it to get. Green Lantern, John Carter, and Catwoman were failures at the box office, but they weren't unseen films. People that saw those films were clearly turned off by them. The same thing must of applied to Troy.V 80 Comments
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...
Agree with all the comments about him - gruppenfuhrerV 27 Comments
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
He's an okay actor but he is extremely overrated. Some of his movies he coul have done better and he's a very odd dude anyway.V 79 Comments
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.
NOT A COMEDIANV 64 Comments
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.
She’s so hot thoughV 55 Comments
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.
Thank you for ruining BatmanV 44 Comments
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
He's great! - kaisietooV 78 Comments
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.V 47 Comments
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.
Just don't like him ( I have never met him ) or his films seems to thinks he is some kind of god like figure - gruppenfuhrerV 49 Comments
Dudes! Vote her.. She is not an actress.. Still she gets millions of dollars..
I don't think that Jessica Alba is a bad actress like the media are trying to tell us ( once they spread the word it's like suddenly everybody agrees ). She was awesome good in the T.V. series " Dark angel " but after that people noticed her just for her good looks ( and don't tell me that she's ugly ) and not for her acting skills anymore. She didn't get many chances to play descent movies after that. Now and then there's a good movie and when that happens she gives very good performances. I think she's rather underrated for her acting. People seems only to put her down because it's becoming almost normal after all the media " lies " to do so. The truth is that she's not a bad actress, but one who deserves better roles.
Brutal actress... she NEVER sounds like shes not reading the script when she talks on film. Her emotions are as obviously phony as her... - VADERtheIMPALER
She's just a Beautiful Doll, not for act. Her every action crush down movies.V 20 Comments
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. - RamblesV 42 Comments
I think he's hysterical, intelligent and wonderful. I love every movie I've ever seen him in.
Fabulous and hysterical comedian and actor who can sing as well
What an amazing comedic actor. Love him so much
I didn't know Chad Smith was an actorV 36 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
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 the bees! " Kinda awful if I do say so myself. - kaisietooV 48 Comments
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.
I did like syriana, but nothing to do with him I just thought it was a good story, be he thinks every body loves him, we don't - gruppenfuhrerV 48 Comments
