221 Katharine Hepburn Katharine Hepburn Katharine Houghton Hepburn was an American actress. Known for her fierce independence and spirited personality, Hepburn was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than 60 years.

What's wrong with you people trying to compare Katharine Hepburn with Meryl Streep? Meryl Streep has not even half the talent Katharine Hepburn had! At least Katharine Hepburn made movies that were watchable ( this can not be said about Meryl Streep ). And has for her range, she was a very versatile actress and did take risks that Meryl Streep would never dare. Last thing! Her on-screen charisma was way better than every other actress at her time and even now there are so called best actresses that will never have the charisma that Katharine Hepburn had. She's the real number one best actress!

The greatest actress of all time. Period

What a wondrous phenomenal ground breaking progressive cutting edge actress and human being. Absolutely love and adore her. A true heroine and role model.

Cool, a bit mannish, very strong looks, beautiful, talented actress, a charisma that can blind you. - ChatonNoir

222 Nora Aunor

The so-called Superstar of Philippine cinema, although she was great during the early part of her career (her performances in Tatlong Taong Diyos, Banaue, Himala, among others, were superb), by the late '80s her acting has been characterized by formulaic grunts and ridiculous hand gestures, facial gesticulations, and body movement. By the time she did the famous "I did not kill anybody! " line in The Flor Contemplacion Story, her acting prowess has started to decline.

She attacks all her roles with the same boring style. One you've seen one of her movies you've seen the all.

One style acting... She is not versatile... Lousy to look at on screen... Her ugly face is so distracting on screen...

223 Aaron Eckhart

Tommy Lee Jones (sadly) was a better Two-Face. Eckhart was such a sissy in that role.

224 Sela Ward

People seem to fawn all over her but she is terrible actress, I just don't see it.

225 Liv Tyler Liv Tyler Liv Rundgren Tyler is an American actress and former child model. She is the daughter of Aerosmith's lead singer, Steven Tyler, and model Bebe Buell.

Seeing as how Steven really has had very little to do with her life, I doubt he got her the part in Armageddon. She was pretty much raised by her mother, and I've heard Todd Rundgren actually had more to do with raising her than Tyler did.

While she isn't the most overrated actress out there she is still overrated nevertheless. The only reason she was so popular is because of her dad Steven Tyler. She wouldve never gotten that role in Armageddon if it wasn't for her dad

How dare you?! Not only is she super sweet and humble in real life, she's and AMAZING actress! Maybe you should go watch Lord Of The Rings again. - DovahQueen

I think she's an ok actress ( and sometimes a very good actress ) but she's too overrated in the looks department. Her body is fair but her face is kinda of weird.

226 Jean Dujardin
227 Steve Carell Steve Carell

Love the guy. Can't figure out his role choices (Dinner for Schmucks? The Ron Burgandy franchise? ) but think he's a terrific actor. I'd like to write a good movie for him.

He does a good Gru accent in despicable me

230 Naomi Watts Naomi Watts Naomi Ellen Watts is a British actress. She made her screen debut in the Australian drama film For Love Alone and then appeared in the Australian television series Hey Dad..!

Many people will not agree with me but I think that Naomi Watts is a more talented actress than Meryl Streep. She really can play all kind of roles ( drama, comedy, action, horror etc... ) in a such convincing way. She certainly doesn't belong in the category of overrated actresses because she's rarely nominated when in reality she should have won at least an oscar.

I can't believe that there are actually people who thinks that this actress is overrated. This actress has proven her amazing talent and yet she's hardly noticed for her work. She really deseves to win awards and Oscars but it seems that some academy snobs prefer to give that to really overrated and less talented actresses than Naomi Watts. This really proves how underrated she is. One of the most talented actresses in the world and yet so little known for her very diverse roles in her movies. I wish she wasn't on this list, really!

One of the most UNDERrated actresses out there. Lover her work. Very convincing and authentic in all her portrayals.

Versatile, talented, can look totally mousy and average as well as a glamorous star. I think she's a true star, without being a stupid diva. Seems smart and sympathetic. Mulholland drive is a great (but weird) film - ChatonNoir

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.

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.

Why is she on this list?

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

234 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

235 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.

236 Rajnikanth

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

237 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.

238 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)

239 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!

240 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
