Most Overrated Actors and ActressesCan't figure out what all the hype is with a particular actor? Put 'em on the list.
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 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".
It continues to amaze me that someone with no talent makes so much money and is a judge on a "talent" show. The only reason she has a signing career is because they can make her sound good in the studio. She has proven time and again that she CANNOT sing live (go back last year, American Idol, the debut of her song with Pit Bull). If you look up the definition of Overrated in the dictonary, there is a picture of her. I agree 200%.
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 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.
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.
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.
Watson is just a terrible actress. She literally puts no effort when it comes to acting. She was the worst actor in the Harry Potter movies.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Natalie portman was OK in Star wars 2, but in Star wars 3 she was weak just because she was pregnant. She made a big scene crying you butt off and making Anakin angry. Then in Marvel she was weak also. I don't have anything bad to say about Thor. Thor was awesome, but Jane was wimpy. They said she was smart. She stood waiting for Thor for hours, thinking he might come back. Idiot.
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.
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.
I can't believe she is even cast in ads. She has never been an actress and never will be. We have a lot of pathetic women who claim to be actress but can't act their way out of a paper bag. The list keeps growing! They waste our time!
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.
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.
She's rich but she is not pretty and she is not talented, I am not rich, pretty or talented, if I could choose one to be, I would choose rich; She's doing great even if she can not act, cause money can not buy everything including talent, 1 out of 3 isn't bad.
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.
Poor little rich girl. Don't know what to do with her life.So she uses her money to get famous because she thinks she has talent for acting, singing and all other things. But the objective truth is that she has nothing to offer in talent.
She can't act at all! I don't know how she even got into the "House of Wax." It wasn't for her rich Grandfather last name and he attractive looks. She wouldn't have gotten a reality t.v. program with Nicole Richie, if it wasn't for her last name or their last names.
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.
How did this bozo ever get himself billed as a comedian? My guess is that he invoked the power of suggestion: he basically said he was a comedian, then sat back and let the world mistakenly assume that, with false advertising laws and whatnot, he couldn't do that unless he was indeed somehow funny. (talk about using a term loosely. )
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.
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.
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
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.
Never had to turn off a movie of her because it was too awful to see her acting. It's the opposite. Whenever I see her in a movie I'm delighted to see her play. She's captivating, magnetic and she has a lot of " on-screen " charisma. She is not that bad as an actress. Besides, she's very humble about her acting skills. She knows that she has some limitations and is not afraid to tell or Judge herself for that. She don't brag about her acting skills like some other really overrated actresses who thinks that they are the best. She's very adorable with her fans also, so, I can't believe that some people really hate or dislike her.
I don't think that Jessica Alba is overrated for her acting. The opposite is more likely. This actress has proven that she can act in every possible genre of movie. She's good in comedies, drama, action, rom-coms...
Never saw a movie of her where she's giving a bad performance. Everybody who says that this statement isn't true has poor judgement capacities for seeing true talent. If she was a bad actress she would never made it in the movie industry. Very beautiful, very talented and really doesn't belong in this list if you ask me. I know that everybody is entitled to express their opinions but to put her on # 19 is exagerated. There are by far more overrated talentless actresses ranked lower that deserve to move up above her.
The Eye was the worst movie I have seen in a long while. She never seems to have a true main objective while she is portraying any of her characters and her line delivery is just atrocious. Her tactics are all over the place with bipolar emotions and blank stares with her huge eyes. Biting/licking your lips is not a feeling or an emotion, even though she seems to think so! Show it with your acting, not your pout!
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.
Scientologist. I could say a lot more, but that puts me off an actor almost as fast as if they’re a sex offender. I don’t want to watch this guy anymore than I want to watch Kevin Spacey in K-Pax again. Whatever acting ability is there doesn’t matter. But for the record he was very overrated when he was a big draw at the box office.
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
But especially to War of Worlds (not his best films) but one of the bests representations that I ever see
Them go to
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
Got lost in the rum playing Captain Jack and never returned to reality. Actually he has pretty much always over-acted. Was good in Gilbert Grape… Chocolat maybe. Other than that he just plays comic book characters in live action films.
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.
I don't understand this list. I read only good positive comments of her and yet she's ranked at # 36.
I think that means that she has to move down or even better, be putting out of this list.
I wouldn't call her as an overrated actress. After all, a talented actress like her deserves to be on the spotlights.
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 have never liked a single role he's played. I only liked Baywatch because of Dwayne Johnson. Find a different hobby, you're overrated and outdated
This is how a fat, effeminate boy gets a career;
He looses weight!
He takes ACTING classes!
He gets THE SINGLE most IMPORTANT thing ANY actor needs;
A NOSE job!
YES, Mr. Efron has one amazing talent - to somehow convince (almost ALL the) little girls they 'might have a chance.'
At the same time, there's many a little boy, who also thinks - and KNOWS - they really DO have a chance.'
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.
If you cover up his body, you'd think you were just looking at a chick. He can't act or sing, he's only popular because of teenage girls thinking he's 'hot' just because he's shirtless in almost every movie he's in.
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.
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.
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.
You people are praising her like she's the new Katharine Hepburn, like she's the greatest actress of all time. Get real, she's very mediocre as an actress ( she will never win 4 Oscars for sure! ). Just because people are obsessed with this actress doesn't make her a top actress that have changed the face of cinema.
Has Always the same expression in her movies ; sad looking. And when she tries to smile it's so forced that everybody can see how bad acting she is at that moment. Too overrated for sure for her acting and certainly for her so-called beauty. Looks like a tall wooden plank.
Just because many people have an obsession for this woman doesn't make her a top actress. She will always be underrated for those people. The truth is that she's really overrated. Mediocre in acting and certainly not a " awesome " beauty.
Untalented actress who made it only because she dates overrated actors like Cruise, Pitt...
Did you see her in a good movie lately? She really can't act and should be higher in rank in this list.
I was tired of her before she ever played Katniss Everdeen (not that I even care about those books or movies). She’s not that good looking or humble, but at least she’s not very bright or charismatic as an actress. Seriously, how does she have an Oscar and Saoirse Ronan and Carrie Mulligan don’t?
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.
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.
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.
