201 Charlton Heston Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston may have received an Academy Award, but he was a terrible actor. His performances were incredibly wooden, and he had a repertoire of approximately one emotional state - one of fake, over-the-top emotional intensity. He is a pain to watch and it baffles me that he ever got so much credit.

Gets too much credits for his acting. He was in movies ( now timeless classics ) like " A touch of evil ", " Ben Hur ", " Planet of the apes "..., but I'm almost certain that if another actor was playing those roles this would have be still great movies. I don't think he did made the difference in those movies as an actor. He's certainly not the worst actor out there. He's just ok but he gets too much praise. He's too overrated.

Stagey and wooden except 3 films - The greatest show on earth, Touch of evil, and Will penny

Gotta agree. A pain to watch that dammed filthy actor!

202 Jeremy Irons Jeremy Irons Jeremy John Irons is an English actor. After receiving classical training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Irons began his acting career on stage in 1969, and has since appeared in many West End theatre productions including The Winter's Tale, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, The Taming of the ...read more.

Overrated over-actor. Like a thinner Brian Blessed.

203 Kate Beckinsale Kate Beckinsale Kathrin Romary "Kate" Beckinsale (born 26 July 1973) is a British actress. After some minor television roles, she made her film debut in Much Ado About Nothing (1993) while still a student at the University of Oxford. She then appeared in British costume dramas such as Prince of Jutland (1994), Cold ...read more.

This lovely woman ( very lovely in real life too ) has proved that she's an amazing actress. She's rather underrated than overrated and for that I think she doesn't belong here on this list. She can act action, comedy, drama, what cannot be said of the many other actresses present on this list and really belongs in this list. Put her out of here!

Love her acting, love her beauty, love her accent.

Really? A lovely beautiful talented actress like Kate Beckinsake on this list?
Who can not love this woman?

204 Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen

What can we say about Charlie? I watched his movies Platoon, Hot Shots, Wall Street and Major league, he was absolutely amazing in all of them.

Charlie Sheen is one of the few actors in Hollywood who can speak fast without making a single mistake (and that's a gift)

His disadvantages: He always gets into trouble and leads himself to disasters like the way he was fired from the CBS Sitcom Two And A Half Men (Which was the best back then). 2- He could lose his temper easily.

He's become a better actor over time. Watch "Wall Street" and you'll see that he never really closes his mouth, as if a deviated septum forced him to breath thru his mouth. It was irritating. Now he's a much better actor with experience that shows through

Great on Two and Half Men, Platoon and Wall Street. But that's it. His career is over, long time ago and now he's HIV positive.

Is acting these days are so overrated, it's literally WINNING.

205 Jonah Hill Feldstein Jonah Hill Feldstein Jonah Hill Feldstein, professionally known as Jonah Hill, is an American actor, producer, and comedian.

Jonah Hill is a naturally funny person who reflects it very well in his movies. The guy is Hilarious and I will watch him in almost anything. As far as his dramatic acting, he is better than I thought he would be in fact he is pretty darn good at it.

Fat ugly untalented jerk. The only reason he's in movies is because he became friends with dustin hoffmans kids and dustin hoffman gave him a part in one of his films. Nepotism strikes again.

He was friends with dustin hoffmans kids and their father for some strange reason gave him a part in one of his movies. Nepotism strikes again

206 Jamie Foxx Jamie Foxx Eric Marlon Bishop, known professionally by his stage name Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, singer, songwriter and comedian.

Jamie Fox has done one of the best Roles Portraying a Musician. He studied Ray Charles and perfected his mannerisms! Also, the guy can sing. In addition to that he is a very funny actor. Some must not like his sense of humor if they don't like him.

He's ugly and he's one of the worst actors I have ever seen

All you have to do is watch Ray or even the Soloist to see how great an actor Mr. Foxx really is. Very underrated.

207 Rajnikanth

Undoubtedly the most over-rated actor in Asia, probably the world!

208 Dylan McDermott

This is another hot man that I love. I think that he is so handsome and yes I am a guy.

You people are homophobes. do you only allow women to call men hot?

Terrible actor. If it wasnt for his playwrigt stepmom (vagina monologues) giving him parts in ger plays he would still be working in his fathers bar. He wont last long anyway because he has no talent.

209 Melissa McCarthy Melissa McCarthy

I used to like her but at this point because of movies like Tammy and a few others, I sick to death of her, all movies she stars in just rely on her being herself instead of a character

Not funny! The fact that she is overweight is what is the butt of her movies jokes! Like in Tammy. Having her cousin playing Molly would've made the show a lot more "interesting"!

His grandfather was director michadl gordon. Nepotism strikes again.

Fat ugly untalented bitch who is in movies because she had a connection. That would be her ugly untalented cousin jenny mccarthy (who is also on this list)

210 Dustin Hoffman Dustin Hoffman Dustin Lee Hoffman is an American actor and director with a career in film, television, and theatre since 1960. He has been known for his versatile portrayals of antiheroes and vulnerable characters.

One of the all time greats. Unique and one of a kind.

He does seem to take himself VERY seriously and I can't say I find him charming, but he's a great actor, always looking troubled or irritated, and also I think he looks very attractive - ChatonNoir

Doesn't belong on this list. Move him DOWN...

Dude, who doesn't love Rain Man?! That movie is awesome and so was he!

211 Dulquer Salmaan

He gets all credit only because he is the son of Mamuty. Even media praises him. Most overrated superstar.

Just an average actor who is overrated because he is the son ofa super star... totally dumb actor

212 Lupita Nyong'o Lupita Nyong'o

Overrated in talent and looks. She hardly has 3 movies in her career and she has an Oscar for appearing 20 minutes on-screen. If Jennifer Lawrence is considered overrated, Lupita definitely kicked her ass.

At least she's better looking than Jennifer Lawrence!

She didn't do enough movies yet to be judged as an overrated or wannabe actress. All I can tell about her is that she's gorgeous to watch.

213 Ricky Gervais Ricky Gervais Ricky Dene Gervais is an English comedian, actor, director, producer, writer and former singer and manager.

Sometimes he goes too far (making fun of children with illnesses or making jokes about other inappropriate things for instance) but I kind of like this goofy guy. He just needs to watch what he says sometimes but he should carry on picking on Hollywood 100%.

Simply adore him. He's got unparalleled genuis, creativity and comedic timing. A true wonder.

Pure genius. I always enjoy watching him

This guy is a genius - ChatonNoir

216 Tori Spelling Tori Spelling

She has rich parents, otherwise Tori Spelling would never make it as an actress as there is nothing special about her

217 Tyler Perry Tyler Perry

He isn't the king of black people, he's a king LIKE black people. All African Americans are royalty whether you choose to believe it or not

The stereotype king of Black people.

218 Mary-Kate Olsen Mary-Kate Olsen Mary-Kate Olsen is an American actress, fashion designer, producer, author, businesswoman and equestrian.

She retired from acting in 2012 to work on her fashion career. Same with Ashley, but Ashley retired acting in 2004. - Anonymousxcxc

Mary kate & ashley olsen were good back in the day... better as a child because when they couldn't act back then it was cute... now al grown up & all that experience in acting and $till don't have a clue what their doing... bad acting all-around

The last time I heard something about them, it was back in 2006! Haven't heard much about them since then, are they OK?

219 Benedict Cumberbatch Benedict Cumberbatch Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch is an English actor and film producer who has performed in film, television, theatre and radio.

This guy is seriously good, folks. He'll win a best actor Oscar. It's only a matter of time.

Great voice and can actually think.

220 Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn, born Audrey Kathleen Ruston (4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognized as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood's Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the 3rd greatest female screen legend in American ...read more.

She's far down on this list and that's good. Even though she shouldn't be here at all... She was divine! Those eyes...! Audrey Hepburn had an interesting face that the camera loved. She was a stylish woman with so much charisma. And the most important thing she was a great actress, and versatile! People think she just played this frail little wide eyed waif but she was a great comedienne, she could play whimsy and bizarre, and she could play very serious roles to like in The Nun. - ChatonNoir

Ridiculously overrated and under talented.

Highly overrated. No big deal

How can you put Dead actresses On the list?
