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

1 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.

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

Way too overrated

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!

Wanna be a humanitarian? Stop making movies!

2 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?

Her voice is so irritating and her stuck up diva bitch attitude just shines through! Why is she always the "middle class underdog" stealing rich men away from their husbands?

Think of every romantic role she's been in.. Wedding planner, shall we dance, maid in manhattan... Ugh, cinderalla story my ass- shes a spoilt woman and way too old for these roles. Get a fresh faced, kind actress please who makes a believable cinderella!

JLO would be AWESOME playing an evil stepmom or a witch obsessed by her looks and youth. She wouldn't even have to act.

3 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.

"his good looks got him where he is now, acting is definitely not his thing - Reader

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

Brad Pitt is so ugly looking to me. His face shape might be why, but in recent years he's looked even worse. Shave the beard off, man! Along with Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio is another actor I find very overrated in looks.

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, ...read more.

She can't act, she doesn't have soul and she's boring to watch and super annoying. Even in a T.V. commercial she sucks (Miss Dior & ultra rouge Dior)! Maybe Angie can't act but at least she's gorgeous while Natalie is just above average looking. I've just watch Netflix Annihilation, the way she moves her body and hold a rifle' you can not give her any credibility. I'm a Star Wars fan, and no need to remain anyone of her poor performance, George Lucas should have replace her after the first movie, same in Thor, good thing they got rid of her character.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

I only see her as Rachel because she did not do anything memorable since Friends, and her looks are so overrated - Reader

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

Scarlett Johansson just stares at whomever is opposite her (or the screen) with her mouth slightly parted.

For someone who wants to be known for her acting, she sure makes sure everyone notices her body (probably because she knows her acting is not that good)

Never impressed by any of her acting and her looks are totally overrated

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.

I hate her she's just like Halle berry and Mika kunis- she thinks she a great actress just because she's "hot"

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!

Saw her in the movie: The messenger. She looked and acted great. She has the body of a high school girl. Surprised they didn't have her braless in the yellow tank top or topless. Skin sells and shed do it - boce

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

8 Adam Sandler 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.

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 ain't relevant anymore. His movies haven't been decent since Anger Management. He is unfunny, thinks making weird voices is funny, and is SOOO overrated! Should be #1

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!

Why are people crazy about this guy? I don't understand - Reader

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...

10 Ben Affleck 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.

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.

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.

The Contenders

11 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.

Her talent was her body. Should of been cast as topless and nude roles only. - boce

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.

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 :(

12 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!

The only credible performance he ever gave was in Magnolia as Frank Mackey, the motivational speaker and it was by accident. He wasn’t acting, he was himself.

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

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.

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.

14 Emma Watson 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.

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...

Does her resume really deserve the hype she gets? Let's be honest people like Hermione and they think Emma is cute. Other than that she can't act and for me personally she comes off as full of it in her interviews.

I did not like her in Beauty and the Beast - Reader

There is no doubt that Emma Watson is a gorgeous young woman, but I wouldn't say that she's the WORST actress in the world. The Harry Potter movies are good, but she is not the best at acting.

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

Even in Titanic I did not like him, and everybody used to say whe didn't he get an oscar nod for his part?! really?! it was a good performance but not oscar worthy, even his looks, personally I thought he looked like a baby opposite Kate -who actually looked older than him-, ever since Titanic, I really did not enjoy his other performances - Reader

He should not be in this list

Compared Mexican women to pigs. Awful actor whose only good role was as Jack in Titanic...or so everyone says. I personally found him dry and devoid of emotion. OVERRATED!

16 Jennifer Lawrence 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.

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.

I don't understand why she so low on the worst actors? She sucks as Katniss. 1) she too old to play the main character and 2) her acting remind me of kristen stewart acting on Twilight. No emotions what-so-ever. Boring. She make Peeta look interesting and the actor is one dimension. At least she look cute than stewart but I can imagine several actress make better katniss than her.

When I saw the movie "American hustle" and later on read the critics it was like that suddenly she was the greatest actress alive in this world. Honestly, she doesn't stand out against the real talented Amy Adams in this movie.

One word to describe her: PHONY

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

The guy's movie career is entirely based on shouting a lot. Aside from playing George Bush, he doesn't really have a lot going for him.

19 Johnny Depp 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.

Things you never have to ask : Geez I wonder if Johnny Depp is going to play a weird/quirky character in this movie?

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

I wouldn't call jonny the worst actor today, but sadly I believe he'll get the next oscar he's nominated for. Just like the most overrated actor we fuss over today denzel.

I love Johnny Depp's characters. I think Johnny Depp's characters are brilliant creations. I love seeing the quirky characters in the movies I enjoy. However, I cannot say that Johnny Depp himself is brilliant.

Absolutely charming capable believable and wonderful. He's the best

This guy really can't act. The worst are the romantic comedies ( A lot like love, Guess who... ).And in more serious roles like for example " The butterfly effect" he is not believable. How a untalented actor like him still gets roles and attention by the Hollywood executives is unbelievable. Way too overrated to be called an actor in fact. He's just a silly entertainer and an idiot if you ask me.

28 Jessica Alba Jessica Alba Jessica Marie Alba is an American actress, model and businesswoman. She has won various awards for her acting, including the Choice Actress Teen Choice Award and Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television, and a Golden Globe nomination for her lead role in the television series Dark Angel.

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 very sexy

This actress can do it all! Drama, action, comedy, you name it. Her acting is almost natural ( it looks like she don't act ), like she " IS " the person in real life whatever character she's portraying in the movie. This actress doesn't belong on this list. She's one of the best actresses of all time.

Good. Probably the hottest female actress on the planet. Love her most of her movies. My favorite movie of her's is 'The Cider House Rules'. She does take risks. She was good in 'Monster' and deserved her Oscar win. Very talented and also very smart. She recently admitted to breaking up with a guy solely because the only reason why she was with him was because she found him attractive. Very honest and sincere. Like her a lot.

Fabulous actress whose looks are as spellbinding as her delivery.

30 Chuck Norris Chuck Norris Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris is an American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter. He was born in March 10, 1940, in Ryan, OK. He is famous for mostly starring in western and action movies.

What actor? He just stares out into space squinting his eyes, until has to do a round house, occasionally saving a damsel in distress, but never a real love scene. Nobody wants to see that, its like seeing someone french kissing an old baseball glove. He looks like he an enlarged prostate.

People act as if he is the toughest guy in the world.

But no worries, he would be remembered for all his jokes and backward politics rather than his talent (? ) in acting.

He only has Walker Texas Ranger, that is all.

Did anybody really believe he was a great actor to begin with?

Possibly, the baddest joke the entertainment industry has ever made.

31 Vince Vaughn Vince Vaughn Vincent Anthony "Vince" Vaughn is an American actor, producer, screenwriter, and comedian. Vaughn began acting in the late 1980s, appearing in minor television roles before attaining wider recognition with the 1996 comedy-drama film Swingers.

Undeserved critics that he is a one-dimensional actor who plays over and over the same characters. Maybe true for some part but even so, the characters he's playing are very well performed. Just because he is not versatile as an actor doesn't mean that he is a bad actor. Overrated? Nobody ever said that he was an exeptional actor who can play everything. So?

32 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!

She should just die in 2018-2022

33 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

I'm not a fan of her singing, but I think she has a potential to become a good actress. She's still learning because she is very young and for that matter I believe it's too soon to Judge her acting capacities. Time will tell us if she's too overrated or not.

Miley Cyrus could learn from her.

I prefer her singing career more than her acting career.

When I watched Monte Carlo I cringed. Sooo fake. Terrible - Truths

34 Harrison Ford Harrison Ford Harrison Ford is an American actor and film producer. He gained worldwide fame for his starring roles as Han Solo in the original Star Wars epic space opera trilogy and the title character of the Indiana Jones film series.

Very good. I can list a dozen of his movies I absolutely love. He rarely does interviews and when he does he VERY sincere. He hates doing them too because he thinks most of Hollywood is bull. Love him.

Bit of a grump in real life but a man's man - a rarity these days. All male actors are vain though - so he's probably like the rest in that regard. Don't think he has a large acting range -pulls the same faces all the time but who cares. He's a one off. A national treasure. Kiss me Harrison.

He should have stop making movies in the mid nineties; everything since then has been an embarrassment.

The Fugitive was a very good movie but his acting sure lacks something.

Love him. Intelligent and trans formative actor.

Hasn't been in a movie I like. My mother loves him.

PLEASE! This guy is a joke too!

36 Channing Tatum Channing Tatum Channing Matthew Tatum is an American actor and dancer. Tatum made his film debut in the drama film Coach Carter.

Definitely overrated... He thinks that he's the greatest just because he's considered attractive... No real good movies, really bad acting

He's an ugly male prostitute not an actor and his movies are horrible.

I am a guy but he's super funny in 21 Jump Street. In the movie Step Up he was great also great dancer he's funny and he was the best part of 21 Jump Street. Great dancer funny in White House Down at some parts.

Not a great actor, but I don't think many disagree with that. This is an "overrated actors" list. I think his "rating" is in line with his acting abilities.

37 Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.

One of my favorite actors. See 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'. Great movie.

He's bad. He plays himself in every movie. The only reason pleople like him is because they aspire to be sarcastic, rude, cynical, witty and get away with it just like Tony Stark. Bad role model.

This guy should be in the first spot. Other than a couple of decent movies, his career has went downhill repeating the same Tony Stark formula for his characters.

Very egotistical. His father was a film director. Nepotism strikes again.

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

Okay, guys. Listen up! Seriously! Most of you guys went to see the Transformers movies just to see HIM and demand more screentime of HIM, just because he's the main star! Yes he's the main star of the films, but that doesn't mean that the movies are good! Here's a valuable life lesson and, of course, there will be disagreements: ACTORS DON'T MAKE THE FILM! SCREENPLAY AND SCRIPTWRITING MAKE THE DANG FILM! GET OVER IT, YOU IDIOTS! I DO have no problem with people liking Shia LaBeouf though, no am I against the actor at all, but it's you idiots who have dedicated yourselves to this guy! Ever since he quit on Michael Bay, since the director's hard to get along with, and won't star in anymore Transformers movies, especially because of you fanboys and fangirls (don't EVER get offended! ), you people have been whining and complaining to get Shia back just because he's the main star of the Transformers films! I've seen Transformers shows that HAVE no Sam Witwicky, especially if you want him ...more

Just a douche with annoying acting. Although he's been in a few good films it doesn't mean his performances are good.

He's interesting. He was good in the von trier film that I can't remember the name of. Von trier always picks the creme de la creme of Hollywood so be aware of this actor - ChatonNoir

He is a great actor I'll like to see how far he will go. he has pulled off all the roles he's been in.

I find him real and endearing. Absolutely adore him.

Such a capable and authentic actor. One of the best

I love this guy. Always look forwArd to seeing any movie he's in. Great skill.

All Zac Efron does is take off his shirt and show abs. Why doesn't he just pose for playgirl magazine instead. He plays the same lover boy roles all the time and is pretty much like his own personality and even worst like Troy Bolton on Disney HSM. Totally overrated.

40 Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker is an American actress, producer, and designer. She is best known for her leading role as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO television series Sex and the City.

She was awesome (and super pretty) in Flight of the Navigator. I've never really understood why people are always so mean to her just because you find her unattractive. Sarah Jessica never made any poor life choices, therefore there is no reason to be BIG BULLIES! - RockFashionista

One of the most talentless actresses in the past 10 years. All her rules are one - hers. I am amused that somebody paid her $30M for a movie. She should have kept in the silly girly sex and the city. Waste of big screen.

Absolutely the most overrated actress. Not that great of an actor. Not that pretty. Period.

She's ugly and old-looking. Why is she still popular on the big screen though Jennfer Aniston is WAY better than her. -

41 Demi Moore Demi Moore Demi Gene Guynes, professionally known as Demi Moore, is an American actress, filmmaker, former songwriter, and model.

Except for Ghost, A Few Good Men and maybe the 80s hit St. Elmo's Fire, Demi Moore's whole career has been a joke based on her looks and films such as Nothing But Trouble, About Lasr Night, Striptease, Disclosure, and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle which were all bombs at the box Office. She is known more for being with Bruce Willis and now Ashton Kutcher. - brettfan

Couldn't agree more. Ghost, that's it! A few good men movie was great, her performance was not. More famous for scandals, marriages, controversial pictures etc. No acting skills whatsoever.

If she had acting skills, she has lost them. They are gone. Sad

Horrible actress and looks like a man.

42 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.

Does he have any talent? He is an average dancer with a lot of luck! His acting is awful and somehow it seems for me as if he had in Hollywood a lot of connections/friends so that we are pretty much condemned to see him play!

After seeing him in roles like Alpha Dog and the Guru I found myself very impressed as he exceeded my expectations. He's funny on film and in real life but he does serious roles well too. There is a reason he's been a repeat host on SNL. Live comedy skits are not easy to do for even legendary actors. I'm not saying he's the greatest and either is anyone else for that matter but Timberlake is an overall talented guy and deserves respect as an entertainer

Good. Has talent as a singer and actor. Doesn't really do serious parts though. He's more of a Hollywood star than a serious actor. He may someday try a difficult part and we'll see if he can do it.

He can sing and dance, I don't consider him an actor, he is alright, I think he might think a lot more highly of his talents and looks, than most others do.

So adorable with wonderful heart wrenching performances. Love, love, love her.

Intelligent and warm actress. You can't help but to see her kindness as it always shines through

I wouldn't call her as an overrated actress. After all, a talented actress like her deserves to be on the spotlights.

Absolutely! I watched a little bit of “Raise Your Voice” (only because of Three Days Grace) and her acting made me cringe the whole time. - 3DG20

44 Aubrey Plaza Aubrey Plaza Aubrey Christina Plaza is an American actress, comedian and producer. She is known for her role as April Ludgate on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.

Tries too hard to be "awkward" and "relatable" in order to make up for the fact that she's a poor actress and a one-trick pony at best. Comparable to Anna Kendrick in many regards, except Kendrick actually lucked out with a long-running film franchise.

Pretty funny in parks and rec, but that's because the role was literally written for her. Unfortunately she has done some really awful stuff since then. Dirty Grandpa is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Known more for her looks than for her comedic prowess, neither of which are all that impressive (unless you're a regular user of Reddit).

That picture makes me wanna kill myself

45 Gillian Anderson Gillian Anderson Gillian Leigh Anderson is an American-British film, television and theatre actress, activist and writer.

She is the cure for insomnia. The reason she hasn't solidified the #1 position in granite here is beyond me. The X-files were rendered unwatchable with this talentless hack. I was glad that she went into relative obscurity for some time but was compelled to gripe when she started taking on a larger role in Hannibal.

The fact that she plays the same monotone character in every appearance would only lead to the conclusion that she is a real-life walking cadaver with zero personality, zero talent, and zero appeal.

She is always complaining about everything. Now she is blaming Hollywood about her wrong decisions about her now irrelevant and finished career.

Blame yourself idiot. Being so arrogant about American Film and T.V. industry and thinking that UK would save your career was so pathetic.

That is what happens when you bite the hand that feeds you.

Dreadful, no one more monotonous... How did she ever get work?

I'm fed up with all the hype re Ms Anderson in The Fall... Her flat slow expressionless delivery and her overly ponderous 1 dimensional portrayal of the character put me off any further viewing. A very limited actress. Reckon most reviews are dominated by shallow men.

46 John Travolta John Travolta John Joseph Travolta is an American actor, dancer, and singer. Travolta first became known in the 1970s, after appearing on the television series Welcome Back, Kotter and starring in the box office successes Saturday Night Fever and Grease.

The person disparaging this amazing actor hasuch no taste and nary a brain cell. John Travolta has the courage to be himself and is wonderful and brilliant. He can sing and dance as well

What a kind caring, vulnerable and honest actor and humanbeing.

Complete hack! Two famous roles a one dates back to the seventies. Played a good junkie in pulp fiction. But we all know Sam Jackson made that one work.

Started off strong then off the cliff.

47 Ryan Gosling Ryan Gosling Ryan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, musician, and producer. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark?

I'm glued to the screen when he is in a movie. Love him.

SUPER overrated, he's really only loved because of his 'good looks' and has an annoying voice

Hard to say, most films I've seen him in, he was pretty good but then, these were good movies to begin with. Maybe he's just good at picking his roles. Anyway not much to complain about so far.

When Ryan acts in a movie he just takes a seat somewhere and begins to give an empty stare. Occasionally he wanders off to another spot and stares there too. He looks absolutely ridiculous doing it, but that's all he got and he gets money for doing it so...

You have to focus on his emotions to understand his acting which you don't

I can't stand her - Reader

What a flake!, so far up herself she's a joke. Probably one of the most annoying, talentless and stupid women on the planet.

The worst actress ever. Worse than Lindsey Lohan!

Great actress in terrific movies? Emma was one? Look for the " Emma " movie version with Kate Beckinsale ( Real British actress with no fake bad British accent like Gwyneth Paltrow and most of all, better looking and more talented than Gwyneth Paltrow! ). This movie alone proves already that Gwyneth Paltrow is too overrated when you see the Kate Beckinsale version.

I actually love lady gaga's acting skills she was great as a helpful waitress in Sin City A dame to kill for and she was fantastic as La Chameleon in Machete Kills and even won best actress golden globe for American Horror Story Hotel as a phenomenal and the memorable Countess Elizabeth and before that she did a really good acting job in her music video Marry the Night

A bunch of documentaries, tours, and a Simpsons episode don't count as "acting".

Entertainers and actors/actresses are different categories even if they appears in movies like "machete".

What has Lady Gaga acted in?

50 Dwayne Johnson Dwayne Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

If being in dumb action flicks makes someone a good actor, then Steven Seagal is a great actor.

He's in the industry for action flicks... and I love that. He's a great action hero. Not a good actor, but a likeable action man nonetheless.

Much better than people give him credit for.

Yes, I can smell what the Rock is cooking. That's why I'm standing way over here...
