Most Overrated Actors and Actresses

Can't figure out what all the hype is with a particular actor? Put 'em on the list.

The Top Ten

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. more.

Everything about Jolie is overrated: her acting "skills", her "parenting time"; her so-called charitable causes. Over half her films tanked at the box office, and the characters she inhabits in them are essentially the same: Angelina Jolie. UN ambassador? Jolie is merely one of several for one UN agency; the 39 other UN agencies employ hundreds of celebrities to advertise their causes. Her photo-ops with impoverished children are virtually bogus. And acquiring six kids in six years is no evidence of any maternal streak; some people collect baseball cards, Jolie collects kids, no doubt to serve as props for her photo-ops. When has she time for "mothering" them? Ask any working mother. As well as being vastly overrated, he woman is phony through and through. She never heard of the Kosovo war, Bosnia, Serbia, until recently? What planet was she on? Rhetorical question. It was what it still is: the World of Angelina Jolie.

! She is by far and without a doubt a stunning actress who has multiple skills and talents and is a fabulous humanitarian. She is so beyond wonderful and amazing and I am so riveted whenever I have the pleasure of watching her on the screen. She is brilliant in all areas of her life and when she had preemptive surgery performed to ensure that she'd be around for a long time to provide for and take care of all of her children...she wrote an intelligent and well informed article citing the reasons for her choices and acknowledging that it may not be everyone else's choice She is one of the few who are not shallow or preoccupied with herself. What a contribution she makes in every way. Thank you wonderful and amazing...Angelina Jolie.

She cannot act. Every movie she has been she comes across as vapid and believes her looks will get her through and they don't. Unfortunately, for Brad his movies have also sucked since the two of them got together. She changed him for the worse not for better as a person and an actor. It is pathetic and it has nothing to do with him being married to Jennifer Anniston. Brad's been around a long time and he is just different in his acting methods and picked up the Jolie infection of helping the world. Which I believe is overrated as well. The best acting they do is act like they are a big "rainbow" family. Just my opinion. I miss the old Brad, Thelma and Louise, Seven, Fight Club his first ocean 11 and 12 Monkeys! I mean come on one has to admit he has changed but not for the better in his choice of movies. Maybe Angelina picks his movies for him. Bad ones I.E. , World War Z.. He is a great actor, but he should be more of a free thinker not a follower of Jolie's weird and strange minded ...more

I love Angelina Jolie. I think in her earlier career she was still learning but she did well in bone collector, was a great lara croft for fun - frankly she is an all around amazing woman - she deserves the right to he called the "Dame" title she was rewarded. Next time wants to say they are team anniston they need re evaluate their life because Jennifer Anniston is nothing but a selfish person. Angie along with acting, works to protect child, feed the hunger and take time to put full effort to protect women in the world against violence- a true Dame. She is a woman that guys can look up to in this modern world and find some part of her or her life that they can identify with in a personal way and that is something we are lacking in this modern age. Thank you Dame Jolie-Pitt

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

She doesn't know how to sing or to act.
The way she dance is something you can see anywhere. Just nice ass latina but tbh even that ass is not so WOW to be where she is with a face like hers. Nothing special about her real talk

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?

I keep trying to watch her movies without bias. Due to her overwhelming media presence, I constantly think that it's just me who can't see her star qualities. My mom wanted to watch Boy Next Door on Pay-Per-View because she liked the trailer, without even knowing who J-Lo was. So we watched and I again tried to be pleasantly surprised by her acting. During the movie, my Mom agreed that the actress was doing just that: Acting. Nothing geniunely conveyed or portrayed, nothing believably experienced... Just "acted". Like in a schoolplay. Like when you try to laugh at something, that's not funny. Fake. When it was over, my mom looked at me and said: "What a stupid movie! " That's what I think about all her movies and sadly, new releases can't seem to change that.

Jennifer Lopez isn't talented on any level. Her music sucks. Her acting sucks. The people that like her just think she's pretty. She's not even that pretty. I think MOST of us would be as attractive as Jennifer Lopez if we were as wealthy and could afford personal trainers, personal chefs, and afforded all the time in the world to focus on nothing but being attractive. She can sing a little, but her voice is nothing amazing. The ability to carry a tune isn't "talent".

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 more.

He can only be in action films. He's not a bad actor, but he's only an action guy.

by the way, he was considered by the studio to play Willy Wonka. I could never picture that. He'd probably have to have the factory explode.

Brad came to Hollywood for one reason and one reason 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.

Brad Pitt was a great actor until he hooked up with with Angelina Jolie and and cheated on his wife, whilst they parade around with their adopted and biological kids like accessories. The fact that these two have so many kids in such a short period of time, tells you that they do not know much about parenthood and children do get older and move on with their lives and probably away from them. That being said Brad's older movies and his acting were awesome, he's lost his mojo, and we know why.

It's always the same: The Artist looks good and gets a role. When you ask a fan why he/she likes him, you get the answer that he looks cute. Maybe he had or has some good movies, but at the moment you don't hear anything of him that has to do with a movie. It's always his family. It gets more and more annoying. Today you can be famous just by doing nothing. You don't need talent. I mean, he is not as good as everybody says. Johnny Depp is much better. He his versatile.

Natalie Portman Natalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship. Portman is best known for her roles as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and Nina Sayers in Black Swan. She won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, more.

She was amazing in Star Wars 2, but her other movies, including Star Wars 3 were terrible. She was honestly so shocking in Star Wars 2, she portrayed Padme beautifully, as a strong-willed, selfless and brave young woman. Her performance was terrific, at that time, I thought Natalie was perfection, since she was beautiful, a great actress and also attending Harvard. But the third movie was terrible, Padme was annoying, selfish, childish, weak-willed and so dull and boring. She could've potrayed her as a stronger and more outstanding character but she didn't. Such a shame, she's so attractive.

Overrated in acting? Definitely YES. Gets way too much hype over nothing spectacular. Overrated in looks? Haven't heard people say she was pretty. In fact, I have heard opposite. I don't find her pretty at all. Looks very average. Take away the makeup and glamour of fame, she would not even be considered pretty in real life. Bland face like her acting ability. Horrible body. I suppose those who would find her attractive are probably Star Wars fanboys, where her 'looks' were emphasized with a lot of makeup and considering she was the only main female, it gave the audience something to look at. As usual, many female actors appealing to vastly male audiences do get praised on their looks as they are the only lead in a male dominated movie thus, just by being female, you would be automatically attractive and be overly hyped, even when you're not, which NP perfectly represents.

Overrated in looks, as well as talent. Don't get me wrong, she's not ugly, just 'meh'. There is nothing about her that stands out. Her body is like a piece of string--nothing on the top or bottom. Sure, she has fine bone structure and a pretty face, but if it weren't for her facial moles, she could easily be mistaken for any brunette teenager with fine bone structure.

Her acting is worse than 'meh'. Not just SW, which NP fans seem to have decreed 'off limits' when it comes to talking about her inability to emote (I seem to recall other actors were able to do their jobs in the prequels). I can't believe she's going to ruin Macbeth.

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.

Jennifer Aniston Jennifer Joanna Aniston is an American actress, producer, and businesswoman. The daughter of Greek actor John Aniston and American actress Nancy Dow, Aniston gained worldwide recognition for portraying Rachel Green on the popular television sitcom Friends, a role which earned her a Primetime Emmy Award, more.

Can you all stop calling people ugly like this isn't a beauty contest. OK you may not like jennifer aniston because you don't like her acting but that doesn't mean you have to bring their looks into it. Just because you think a person isn't pretty does mean they're a bad actor or actress

Agreed, not a good actress, and has the best publicist in Hollywood. She can't do any dramas, no accents ever, at 46 you would think she could do an accent or speak another language. In listening to to interviews she shudders and don't complete her sentences. On Ellen she do the repeat after me scene, and talking about birds...Ellen told her to ask the guy they were joking with, do you like finches, you know common birds, and Jennifer ask do you like fishes. She's not the smartest woman. One last think her Aveeno commercials, you can tell that she's been practicing the word results. "Aveeno simply beautiful results" sounds so stupid. Hollywood is run by actors these days so if you have your own production company, you pretty much have the movie in the bag. Hopefully the academy will same true to given Oscars to people truly talented.

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.

Her best talent was her breasts. She was popular on Friends because she look so perky, most of the time.

She cannot act talk about playing the same character until ANGRY BOSSES she never ONCE changed her look Unless you all count That St. Patricks day B-rated flick Leprechan a change she had her NATURAL COLOR Brown. Also there is NO LUCK to it her Father is an actor Duh same with Angelina Jolie But GIA was the best movie she was FANTASTIC in it. It is harder to play an actual person who lived on this earth then a made-up fictional character people. She also will dye her hair. She has had several movies I was pleased to watch her play, but Jennifer Anniston cannot act at all. Has no depth to any of her characters because she is playing parts written spacifically for her as herself. Comady and Rom-Coms are all she can do. Angie has done it all.

Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. more.

All she does is keeping the same face expression and showing her boobs. Her body in swimsuit is embarrassing. Same goes for Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lopez. I can't understand why they make below average looking women on the top of the world and convince a lot of beautiful ladies over the world they should look like them. I am man and trust me..that's not what REAL WOMAN should look like.

Her promoters bill her as "one of the most beautiful women in the world," but that is such an incredible stretch that it makes me want to throw up. There's nothing special about her at all. In fact, if you go to any high school with more than 50 students (I.E. boys and girls), you could probably find 12 girls who are much prettier than her. In other words she's about as plain and average as a mud wall. The only thing that she's got going for her at all is a lot of money to spend on $1,000 Hollywood beauty parlor appointments and $1,000 a visit personal trainers. Oh, there is one other thing that she's really got going for her; she's Jewish, which helps tremendously in Hollywood.

IS SHE OVERRATED? after reading the comments GEE I guess she's lucky to get a date, much less be one of the highest paid actresses . I wonder who would be the not overrated choice of all of these commentators

She always plays the same character that interestingly enough always has the same vacant look. Many people claim she is "subtle", but that would imply something good. What I think Scarlett Johansson is completely lack-luster, in reality. As far as her being a sex symbol, maybe her body, but facially, like I said, vacant. There is no fire. It isn't even a dreamy vacant. She is boring, and usually way overdone with the makeup and the tight clothing. I find her to be one of the most over-hyped "hotties" of Hollywood.

Kristen Stewart Kristen Jaymes Stewart is an American actress. 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 more.

Wears the same bland expression in everything she's in. No emotion except for maybe constipation or eye seizures. Acting requires using your face muscles, and that's just the least of the work required for the career. If she can't even do that then I don't know how she keeps getting roles. She along with the directors and writers absolutely ruined the Twilight movies. Poor Robert Pattinson, he was too great for all of that.

I am a huge fan of science fiction and in particular vampire movies. My wife also really enjoys the same thing. The entire series of Twilight was horrible for me because of this one actress. She does not provide believability in her role. She is depressing to watch but it is not acting. She seems to be depressing in all things. A good actor has the ability to be different than they are in real life. The role needs to dictate the mood and needs to transcend. The role needs to bring the viewer into the scene. Her acting makes me want to leave the theatre or turn off the television.

I really like Kristen Stewart. She is still young and and working on her acting craft. I think she has proven she is a box office star with trilight and was able to transition from a young child actor ( movie with Jody foster) and in the process continued her success instead of ending up by that loser Lindsay Lohan. Why can't we giver her positive credit instead of trying to tear her down. I also think it's hypocritical to give her such a hard time with the affair with R. Sanders. If it was a man - they wouldn't a big deal about it. Give the girl the space and breathe she has earned with her worth ethic and career.

Yes, agreed. You look at her, and you say she's beautiful. After 5 minutes of movie play you'll say, nopes! She's beautiful as long as the god gift is considered. She's certainly an unknown to acting. Monotonous expressions and actions. Her body language ain't good as well. Put her on number 1.
AND PULL JENNIFER LOPEZ OUT OF THIS LIST. She's not the best, I agree but for that reason only she has only 20-odd notable movies in a career of 17-18 years, but she's not overrated for sure, and she's not underrated. She's just a little above average, exactly what she deserves.

Adam Sandler Adam Richard Sandler is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and film producer. After becoming a Saturday Night Live cast member, Sandler went on to star in many Hollywood feature films that combined have grossed over $2 billion at the box office.

Always amazed me that the Adam Sandler who was brilliant in 'Reign On Me' has also been responsible for some of the most unadulterated rubbish that US cinema has ever inflicted upon the World.

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.

Adam sandler doesn't deserve to be on this list he deserves to be on a list of the greatest actors of all time. I do agree that his movies have gone down but he will be back and he will make movies that will blow you away. Also how do some of you not like him he is absolutely hilarious. some of his movies like billy Madison and the waterboy are hilarious but they take It to far in some parts. personaly I prefer the movies were he makes jokes instead of making voices that sound weird. the point is adam sandler is one of the best actors ever and does not deserve to be on this list... and neither does ice cube... and will ferrel. come on, he is also one of the best actors.

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.

Robert Pattinson Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson is an English actor, producer, model, and musician. He started his film career by playing Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a 2005 fantasy film.

I have to say he and Kristen make a good couple for a constant appearance at the Golden Raspberry Award. Apart from that, he is fine, a little bit immature though. I mean at least he is a better actor than Kristen, who certainly knows about acting and facial expression... Sad story

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...

You all realize that twilight was not the only movie he was in right? Robert Pattinson was also cast a Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter movies too. He is all around an ok actor I think. He definitely shouldn't be number 7 on this list though more like 14 or 15

How is this guy behind Brad Pitt? Seriously, a man who plays a moody vampire who is attractive to 10 year old girls is apparently better that Lt Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds or Tyler Durden in Fight Club. It makes no sense.

Ben Affleck Benjamin Geza Affleck-Boldt is an American actor and filmmaker. His accolades include two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTA Awards, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Looking at these comments I am convinced that Ben Affleck has found this site himself and informed Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel and a few of his other friends to get on here and say good things about him and his "acting skills". Truth be told, Ben Affleck sucks. Yes he was good in Argo, Town, and maybe even Gone Girl but only in that because he had to play a big, dumb, clueless, idiot which is a role he is fit for. Yet Hollywood keeps casting his soft ass to play these harder, tougher characters like Batman. Which I'm sure he will suck at because well...if he couldn't cut it as Daredevil, how the hell is he going to cut it as Batman? I'll never understand how he keeps getting cast. He seems more like a manager or supervisor at a Home Depot than a actor.

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.

How is this guy under Brad Pitt. Matt Damon is a 100 times better then his best friend here. I have not seen a single movie that is good where he is the main character. As a matter of fact Good Will Hunting was decent but not because of him and smoking aces because he died quick. Only two movies with him it that are bearable to watch and he's not the lead in either. He should be number two on this list behind Kristen Stewart

Ben strikes me as a frightened kid in a neighborhood he doesn't belong in; and that neighborhood is Hollywood. Matt Dammon is a decent actor in my opinion and he's comfortable with hemself..I think Ben tries to tell himself he's as good as Matt because they came up together..If it weren't for Matt Ben would be back in Mass. Where he should have stayed.

The Contenders

Leonardo DiCaprio Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is an American actor and film producer. DiCaprio began his career by appearing in television commercials in the late 1980s.

You say he plays the same character. in what's eating gilbert grapes was his role similar to the role he played in the aviator or in the wolf of wall street or blood diamond or even in django unchained his scenes were far better than Christoph waltz's and could have easily had an oscar nod for that role. If you don't like the dude say it but don't downplay his acting. he was handpicked by Robert De Niro out of 400 young actors to play the lead role in This Boy's Life. are you guys saying bobby can't see skill. the only movie I've seen leo get outclassed in in Gangs of New York by a master of his craft, Daniel day-lewis

I would vote for him if Tom Cruise wasn;t higher on the list. Anyway, just dropping by this comment: He plays the same guy in every movie, and yes he does it well, but damn this guy has no range. Plus, everyone out about him deserving an oscar and all, he has got to much publicity. He works with good directorsm he does good work. He works with bad directors, he does bad work. Makes you wonder. Also, he has no screen presence and even dialogue delivery is questionable. Plus his accent semss so fake. Fake pain, fake happiness, fake evrything. He's good at best. Not "one of the best" out there. Thank you. lol

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.

It seems like he tries hard and people really want believe he is a brilliant actor but truth be told he is decent at his best. Most of the time he comes as boring, shallow, and even a little condescending. He's a little like George Clooney without the charisma. He's moved past the teen idol phase and is now just like a hold out for roles that get him award nods.

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.

A pretty face and nothing more. She got her career through her body and while that's great for her and I don't condemn her for it, I question why people think she's better than she is.

Another horribly talentless, surgically-enhanced embarrassment skirting by on her looks. Seriously Hollywood, if you have to make every female starring role some kind of cookie-cutter Femme-bot at least find one that can act. I like babes as much as the next guy, but I can't stand watching her. Shame... Transformers could have been so epic :(

Honestly I think she is very underrated. No one actually takes her seriously as an actress. Everyone just thinks she's that hot chick from transformers. And just because an actor is in bad movies doesn't mean that they are bad at acting. "@Michael Bay"

Just horrible in transformers...worst part of the movie to watch her just showing her sex appeal. All for sexy but what a waste to put her in Transformers. Same with that Model (not sure who that was) in the following transformers movie. How stupid

Emma Watson Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is a British actress, model, and activist. Born in Paris and brought up in Oxfordshire, Watson attended the Dragon School as a child and trained as an actress at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts.

The most generic actress I've seen. It's as if she studies from an acting manual. She also needs to stop with that exaggerated eyebrow acting. She doesn't deserve the hype.

She's an amazing actress!

Roles like Hermione and Belle required dedication and passion. It's hard to imagine anyone else playing Hermione Granger.

My child and I regularly burst out laughing while watching the Harry Potter movies simply because of her intensely bad acting. We ended up barely able to watch them anymore because of her. And since, I sometimes see these "star" photographs of her, with comments about her being the epitome of beauty etc. - that's another howler... She is one of the most profoundly ordinary looking girls I have ever seen, there is nothing spectacular or remarkable about her looks at all... So weird...

Don't get it. How did she come so far. I will never understand why she was cast in Beauty and the Beast among some more talented singers. Hate all of the new live action Disney movies but that one takes the cake as the worst because Watson is so dreadfully boring in it.

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 more.

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.

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...

Honestly he's not totally bad. I was watching Interstellar a few weeks ago, and I had the same feeling I always get with him. He starts off terribly, just god awful, but then he warms up and he gets better during the second half of almost all his movies. He should consider just coming in for the last 1/2 hour of the rest of his movies from now on.

He's a horrible actor. The fatuity that he exudes in his interviews radiates through the real emotions that he dully tries to affect. I think the only people who go to see his movies are hapless, sexually frustrated women who can't see this aura of smugness for a halo of handsomeness.

Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Shrader Lawrence is an American actress. Lawrence began her career in television, playing her first major role as a main cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

People were actually calling her the "next Meryl Streep." LMAO. Her acting always seems overstudied and pretentious. Also, her accent in The Red Sparrow was atrocious. Overrated AND overhyped.

On acting skills alone she is just so Milk-Toast. All of her characters are the same. Yes she was fantastic in silver linings playbook but only because that script worked for her inconsistent craziness. Can't stand her in anything else.

Deserves to be at the TOP of this list. She's the most overrated actress of all time. Doesn't deserve half of her awards, and much less the Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. Her only good performance was in Winter's Bone, all the rest was just a huge package of overrated performances. It's funny cause she beats Kate Winslet to become the youngest actress with more Oscar nominations, while she's not even CLOSE to Kate Winslet talent as an actress. Very, very, very overrated.

"oh she can emote so perfectly, lets shower her with praise." Give us all a break. Hardworking soap actors have to be insulted by that line of crap

Will Ferrell John William "Will" Ferrell is an American actor, comedian, producer, and writer. He first established himself in the mid-1990s as a cast member on the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live.

The exact same annoying character that thinks they're funny, reprised through different situations and movie titles. Hands down one of the worst cinematic "comedians" and I wish he'd stop getting casted.

Plays the same character in a different situation every single movie. He gets lucky and has good writers, so a lot of his movies are really funny and very quotable (Anchorman is a good example) however his acting gets boring and repetitive. I find myself quoting him and then forgetting what movie it actually came from all too often.

He can kinda act but all of his characters are exact copies of Buddy the elf.

I agree that he is a bad actor for the most part. He is a decent comedian when a flick is well paced and scripted, but only when he has a good supporting cast which often reflects more on them in that case in my opinion. I have to say I do like quite a few of his movies, but a lot of the ones that depend on him to carry it are unwatchable for me.

Not very versatile in his comedy acting skills. Plays every comedy the same way. Whenever you are to see a movie that you didn't see yet with him as lead role, you can be sure that it will be the same acting as every movie you already saw with him. OK for two or three comedies seeing the way he plays but after a while it gets boring.

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.

Overrated, nothing but action films that are never interesting. And if they are it has nothing to do with him. He's just unnecessary.

He such an arrogant person. I almost lost my cookies when I saw walking through the hanger of the aircraft carrier the U.S.S. Ranger CV-61 in 1982, with Val Kelmer and the rest of the "Top Gun" crew. Besides, he is a very controlling person and out of touch with reality. He only stands five feet five inches tall. I even had to pat him on the back in the shooting of "Top Gun" when he splash 5 planes for the movie right after he landed on the Ranger. The F-14 squadron had to put blocks on the peddles inside the F-14, so he could reach the peddles. He has the same personality in every movie he has made. Lets face it, he can't act! All of his wife's left him for pushing his cult faith down the throats, being too arrogant and supper controlling!

He joins Kevin Costner and Keanu Reeves as guys that are well paid, very busy, and thin on talent. it seems as if they play themselves in every role with little difference in the way they approach each role. I suspect that those promoting him have sufficient clout in Hollywood to keep Cruise staring in forgettable film after film. I suppose in 2047 "Mission Impossible 199" will be over-hyped, promoted every 30 seconds on T.V., Radio, On-Line, and what other forms of communication are available.mid-century. Can 85 year old Cruise keep carrying the water? Cruise cannot complain about the width of the ad buys and money spend by the studio on his films. The efforts don't make up for his uninspired acting and repetitive storylines.
Yes, he is short, his height reminds me of a great actor James Mason who at 5'4" presented a big challenge to appear to be taller that his love interest and average height to the other players. At 5'6" we also have Vladimir Putin, he's shorter than Angela ...more

Who say that Tom Cruise can't act is just an ass.

Look at Impossible Mission
Last Samurai
Minority Report

But especially to War of Worlds (not his best films) but one of the bests representations that I ever see

Them go to
Oblivion and
Edge of Tomorrow!

In Edge of Tomorrow, you can feel in his face the slow mutation on his confidence on battlefield. Just epic!

And you can see how slowly he get in love with the girl...

For me, I never saw such a thing in another action actor...

Open your minds

Nicolas Cage Nicolas Kim Coppola, known professionally as Nicolas Cage, is an American actor and producer. He is well known for his roles in Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Vampire's Kiss, Wild at Heart, Honeymoon in Vegas, Red Rock West, Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, City of Angels, 8MM, Bringing more.

Nicholas Cage should find a cage far away from Hollywood and lock himself in it. This man has absolutely zero talent. HIs expressions get worse as he ages. And by expressions I mean expression. Because this man has absolutely no emotion or range in his acting abilities. You'd think he had plastic surgery, but he hasn't. He just sucks at showing any sort of emotion and therefore sucks at his only job acting. I hope directors put him on a blacklist of actors not to cast to save us all the trouble of seeing his face on screen ever again. Talentless. Emotionless. And hopefully soon jobless.

How can anyone say he is a good actor? Some people are picked to play the same characters-like Michael caine. No matter his role he is always the "hi my name is nicolas cage and I'm here to do this job. " In a half hearted expression. And the fact is proven when all of these crappy movies throw all kinds of money at him because they know any good actor would laugh at the thought of playing in his crap. Except national treasure.

Not a bad actor per se, his body of work has eroded so much that he's turned into a joke. Raising Arizona, Kick-Ass and The Weather Man are good movies but there's more of these crummy straight-to-on-demand movies being made all the time. His infamous shopping sprees, bad investments and tax problems all probably contribute to his filmography decline.

He is incapable of being anyone but himself in any movie role. Same persona, just change the title. Real actors "become" the person they are playing. I'm still scratching my head trying to reconcile the fact that Cage received an Oscar for best actor -- and Peter O'Toole (with 7 nominations) never did.

Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

Now, I wouldn't say that Johnny Depp is a bad actor, as I believe that he has talent, but many of his roles are the same.
It seems that many girls/women love him because they consider him attractive, which could be one of the reasons for his fame (but I'm an idiot anyways, so don't quote me on that). The only movie starring Johnny Depp that I really liked was Edward Scisserhands.

He had a good start, but he has since become a parody of himself. He's extremely overrated. It's like every movie he's in nowadays is just an excuse for him to wear a lot of makeup and reprise his weirdo guy character. The fact that he was even nominated for best actor in Pirates of the Caribbean, is pretty much a travesty.

Yes Johnny bloody Depp might be good at playing a wacky, almost psychopathic character, but that's ALL he is good at. It seriously annoys me how everyone thinks he's the greatest thing on earth because he's really, really not. Nor is he even that good-looking... just gonna throw that out there.

You obviously have not seen his older work. And regarding his Tim Burton roles... He is one of the BEST character actors EVER! You are just simply wrong and have not watched enough movies to judge him as an actor

Shouldn't even be on this list. One of the best actors of our time. Should have got an academy award long ago. Dares to be different. Meryl - watch and learn. Seems like a lovely man too. Strangely I liked him best in The Tourist - I think it was harder for him to play normal than it was weird. xxx

Sean Penn Sean Justin Penn is an American actor, filmmaker, and political activist. He has won two Academy Awards, for his roles in the mystery drama Mystic River and the biopic Milk.

Never understood the hype surrounding this guy. The only good performance he ever gave was in Carlito's Way. Apart from that he only goes through the motions for every part he plays. I never understood why The Thin Red Line was considered good, Sean Penn just ruined it for me. His acting was the only problem I had with The Game. Just a guy with connections who tries to look convincing. It's one thing to appear like you're intense but it's a completely different thing to use your emotions. You would think that a guy influenced by Robert de Niro would know this.

Okay if any of you have seen Falcon and the Snowman you would change your view of him tatally out spoken actor and inspiring to say the least I have met this fine actor on the dry of We" re no. Angels With Robert d" neiro. Oh ya what a good job he did in Milk. It was awesome. You see if you do not follow peoples carriers from the beginning you get to know them really well and what kind of films they like doing. Thanks for you for being U. Sean. Pean

One of the most overrated who tries so hard to convince the audience he is a natural while failing miserably. The worst is especially when he tries to with as if so deep in emotions with so much facial expressions but again failing miserably to convince. I can see through him, nothing natural, so studied, so deliberate. BIG FAIL! Can't understand how he has fooled his peers.

Come on guys! One of the greatest actors of all time! You won't find another actor in holliwood that can play as many different characters as he did, in terms of voice, accent, personality, intensity, etc. He doesn't try, he BECOMES the character! Creates real connection whoever he's sharing a scene with, never over nor underacts and he's effective. Impecable actor, technically flawless.

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.

Hands down one of the most overrated actors to ever exist. He has ruined every movie he has ever been in for me, I can never enjoy it due to his listless and arrogant acting style. It's almost as if he doesn't think he needs to try just because he's so popular. He needs to be higher up.

In every one of his films, he doesn't even give enough effort to put in me in the suspense of disbelief. Why? Because all of the characters he play as (especially Ocean's 11, 12, 13) is always that cocky rich bachelor that really annoys the living day-lights out of me.
Not to mention his role as Batman (in Batman & Robin) still remains that cocky bachelor that I despise and how the heck did he still have an acting career after that pile garbage. None of his movies ever entertained me, but rather aggravates me. There are SO many actors out there busting their ass to get in the movie industry and it insults me to see that Clooney doesn't even try in ANY of his movies.

This maggot seems to only be famous, but for no real achievements, and has really no breakthrough in any of his leading roles. What's so great about him? Certainly he is NOT what I'd note as an "A-listed" actor. Can't by any standards compare w/ real talent E.G. Al Pacino (in Godfather films and/or Scent of a Woman etc. ), Will Smith for the numerous kinds of roles he's been in E.G. in Hitch, or The Pursuit of Happyness, or Leo Dicaprio for many movies including Catch Me if You Can, or The Departed which are hands down, good movies? What, this Clooney douchebag is "good -looking? What a joke cause the ladies noting this must be kinda blind. Hollywood is certainly lacking significant talent like perhaps another Marlon Brando type person to push this bozo out of film industry.

George Clooney is the worst Actor on planet and also doesn't seem to think we live in a contry where free speech exist. Perhaps he would be happier in a condo in downtown Moscow. Steve Wynn was right about him and his Presidential fixation. Apart from that he is a horrible actor how did he even become famous like his is - it is the greatest fraud or con performed on the American people as far as actors go. He needs to go back and disappear into one or 2 of the sitcoms he came from (ER and Roseanne). Yes - check it out urself if you don't blieve it -. And he probably never would thank her for giving him a job. Just a rotten tomato actor all the time.

Vin Diesel Mark Sinclair, better known by his stage name Vin Diesel, is an American actor, producer, director, and screenwriter.

I never saw anything with this block(head) of wood, except Pitch Black - which I loved - because 1) Mr.. Diesel was NOT the star, nor center of the film, and because it wasn’t made as a 'Hollywood blockbuster,' but, rather, a small - vastly smaller than a Hollywood equivalent would be - picture out of Australia.

I never see ANY films which have 'numbers' or 'part (fill-in-the-blank)' in their title. That alone shows you how utterly bereft of ideas there are.

The Pitch Black franchise tanked - IMMEDIATELY, when whoever the moron was, who 'thought' (a dangerous concept in the wrong brain! ) that Mr. Diesel and his character were 'star' material, and he should therefore be the center of a sequel.


Even odder, I think I'm correct, when I say that the sequels were actually made by the first film's creator. This is an anomaly, as usually after the first one becomes a hit, the project - if it's a Hollywood production -is YANKED from the originals (probably ...more

Not a good actor in any way, but if he sticks to tough guys roles so long as it isn't mindless Fast and Furious #? I can sometimes make it a guilty pleasure such as with Pitch Black and Riddick.

Why is this potato still making movies. can't act, doesn't do his own stunts, and his robotic torture voice...stop stop it. B.T.W. slightly changing your already robotic voice into something else and repeeting... I AM GROOT.does not take any talent. You do not even deserve a paycheck for that... but being Vin.. he got paid good. Which makes him a scam artist

When is a sailor a piece wood?

When he is a-board (or when he is being portray by vin "I have been sniffing" diesel).

Jennifer Love Hewitt Jennifer Love Hewitt is an American actress, singer, songwriter, producer and director. Hewitt began her career as a child actress and singer.

She played Audrey Hepburn and that's a joke? Meryl Streep playing Margaret Thatcher ( and getting a winning oscar for that crap ), Nicole Kidman playing Grace Kelly... That are really jokes! Just look at the Audrey Hepburn movies and compare the scenes played by Jennifer Love Hewitt afterwards. Details, mannerisms etc... are in fact very well played by Jennifer Love Hewitt. And what about movies like " A home for Christmas ", " Trojan war ", " The Suburbans ", " Can't hardly wait ", " Heartbreakers ", " Café ", the " Ghost whisperer " series etc... Are these jokes also? Jennifer Love Hewitt is a very talented actress. You don't know what you are saying when you concider this actress as a joke!

Very beautiful and talented actress, singer and producer. She can play very diverse roles. Outstanding performances in " Trojan war ", " I Know what you did last summer ", " The suburbans ", " Heartbreakers ", " If only ", " Can't hardly wait ", " Café ", her T.V. series " Ghost whisperer ". She was even very good as star and producer in " The Audrey Hepburn story " ( she pulls off the complex and demanding role as Hepburn with great aplomb. Jennifer's recreations of classic Hepburn movie moments are fantastic. ). She's rather underrated than overrated for her talent. Doesn't belong here!

Never saw a movie or T.V. serie where she's acting bad. She just have to improve her acting when she's playing a scene where a kind of happiness is to be shown ( sometimes she acts a little bit childlike in that matter ) but besides that I think she is a very good and convincing actress. Her attention by the media is mainly focused on her private life and rarely on her acting skills and because of that I don't think she's a overrated actress.

I don't think that this very beautiful actress is overrated. She's very appreciated by many for her talent ( she's a good actress, she produces, she sings ) and that's hardly the same thing as to be overrated. A very adorable and down to earth actress in real life and she's certainly not just a pretty face with no talent or brains that's only be there to watching by.

Taylor Lautner

You're hot Taylor, awesome. Now learn to act. He, Kristen, the directors and the writers single handedly ruined the Twilight movies. It never stood a chance. Taking your shirt off is not classes as acting. Maybe try another method? Or just go in to modelling. If you want to make money off of your looks it's a good career :)

How are Keanu Reeves, and Johnny Depp worse actors than
A guy who does nothing but take his shirt off?
Taylor Lautner should be number 1 period.

Taylor Lautner plays the most stupid and unemotional character on the worst movie/book franchise ever he's only used to attract girls nothing else.

Yes you have a really nice body, but one nothing but another member of the cast from twilight who can't act.

Beyonce Knowles Beyoncé 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.

Whilst I've never yet been fortunate (? ) to have seen this person perform...anything, I have been witness to her dramatic use of gobs and gobs of Hydroquinone (go look it up).

Yes, let's here it for 'black power' (just, you know - not too black, as these sisters make very plainly obvious, with their ever lightning complexions).

By the way: here's a little thought - whilst I'm mentioning making one lighter, it always amazed me how (gullible) so many people were. About what, well, a lpt of things, the first - and most obvious, was 'King of Crap' Mr. M. Jackson.

When he became lighter, and brighter, and whiter than some people's teeth, why - what did god old space-boy 'come out' and admit to? '

Why, he had vitiligo!

And everyone knows that people who suffer from this melanin DEPRIVING condition do EVERYTHING they POSSIBLY can to EXACERBATE - the situation.

I mean, why try and put a concealment cream on which would mask the LIGHTER patches, and ...more

Quite possibly the most overrated person. Walking the planet. Clearly rips off other artists (aaliyah to start that long list). Her acting is absolutely atrocious. She might possibly have the most annoying and hated fans that are so one sided it's hilarious at times.

It's one thing seeing her on all of the "best singers" list. But when I start seeing her in the top 30 of the best actresses lists I have a problem.

Even awful Paris Hilton is better actress than Knowles.
Beyonce sucks literally
