21 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 think she's totally watchable! The Fall was brilliant!

Lovely and very authentic actress. Wonderful to watch.

Such an exciting and challenge seeking actress and human being. Love her so much

She's such an amazing and wonderful actress that never fails to deliver

She is the definition of bland.

23 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's just a Beautiful Doll, not for act. Her every action crush down movies.

24 George Clooney George Clooney George Timothy Clooney is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work as an actor and two Academy Awards, one for acting and the other for producing.

Drop dead gorgeous and oozing charisma. Love to watch him. He was amazing in "The Descendants"

Charming and intelligent as all get out. What a cool guy. The most handsome actor that ever was

This actor is richly authentic in every role he has ever taken on. He is believable and understated when that is what is called for. He is a gracious actor who makes his costars shine, as well. I'm so grateful for every movie he has ever entertained us with.

Great actor great in Oceans 11

25 Lindsey Lohan Lindsey Lohan

Why does the corporate media keep pushing this washed up skank? She was never a good actress and has done nothing professionally or privately worth following. It's like when a talentless kid actress grows up, and refuses to accept the fact that she's a has-been. Can we all save our writing talents and concentrate on actors who actually work, and are talented? The constant pushing of this mediocre D-Lister proves that the corporate controllers of the movie and media industries want young girls to look up to and copy what filth like Lohan does. Let's all end this train-wreck now by ignoring her. Ignore the media accounts, boycott the blogs who talk about her, and boycott the products of any company that sponsors on any T.V. network that airs stories about her. STOP ENCOURAGING MEDIOCRE HACKS!

Oh Lindsay, how the mighty have fallen or rather the how the child idol has fallen. She might have some talent but her career has plummeted sharply off the cliff. I used to love her when I was younger (12-14 years of age), but I then realized that there were people who were so much better. While she is just getting back in the game, she is still overrated right now and some of her acting is not always that great. (E.G. saturday night live). Lindsay, if you want to get back on track, prove to us that you can still act more than just a good movie or two.

I actually think she's a great actress. Not a great personal life but an intelligent thoughtful actress who informs her roles with authenticity and heart.

So much wasted potential. Loved her in Mean Girls. She had the future before his hands and she jettisoned it.

26 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus

She Can't Act. She Is A Wannabe Bad Girl She Tries To Get Attention From Copying Lindsay And Britney. She Can't Act She Can't Sing She Can't Dance. She is famous for being famous. She Is copying Britney about how she doesn't about anyone and does whatever she wants like smoking at 18. At least Britney has changed the world with her music.

I see lots of other actors and actresses that are not as famous but way better at acting

Miley is one of the most overrated celebs of the 21s century simply by the fact that she is from that Cyrus familly who is known to have one hit and it's not even a decent one. And last that show of hers that my daughter watches its disgracing the whole Disney franchise.

A media creation. Can't act can't sing. This is Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter for crikey sake. She's crying out for attention because she can't hack it. Take a look at other Disney former stars. Zac Efron, Selena Gomez they rely on talent.

They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

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

Beyonce is way too overrated. She should be the first one one this list

Beyonce is pretensious and her horrible personality shows.

Beyond my taste.

Amazing intelligence informs all the roles he inhabits.

The very best there is. Totally underrated

Not overrated at all, in fact I don't think most great actor surveys put him high enough.

He was really good in a movie called I Am Sam great movie when he had that disability in that movie he was great.

29 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.

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.

One trick pony. She's good for characters like Hermione and Belle, but that's it. - TheFinestPumpkins

30 Julia Roberts Julia Roberts Julia Fiona Roberts is an American actress and producer. She became a Hollywood star after headlining the romantic comedy Pretty Woman, which grossed US$464 million worldwide.

She just plays herself in every movie. - CraZee

Can't stand her. Can't agree more that she is exactly the same in every movie, playing herself. And that face taking over smile of hers is so tired and insincere. In Larry Crowne she was so boring, and banking doe in lack-less and lazy acting on her part. Some one please get her of the screen already. - Pitstop325

People always put her in the "sexy woman" role, but she is ugly as a stick. But side roles, suit her well.

I liked her in Pretty Woman, not a movie I would see more then twice. Saying that I think she is a bit phones and definitely not a sister. She was only happiest stealing a husband.

31 Halle Berry Halle Berry

Never understood all the hoopla. Her acting is no better than any of my high school students', who are only doing it for some extra credit.

She's an ok actor but doesn't deserve the fame she's got right now.

Needs more serious acting roles. We already know you can be a drug addict, retarded cat, and a bikini clad spy

I'm not done about this bitch. Her 2002 winning was completely ridiculous. Sissy Spacek was snubbed because of this thing called "DIVERSITY". - Karlbar

32 Taylor Lautner Taylor Lautner

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

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

I have no idea why people like him. He plays the worst werewolf in the history of cinema.

Can't act, proved it from a young age.

33 Hilary Duff Hilary Duff Hilary Erhard Duff is an American actress and singer. Duff began her acting career at a young age, and quickly became labeled a teen idol as the starring titular character in the television series Lizzie McGuire.

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.

Nope.

34 Zack Efron

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.

Nat Wolff is going to rage when he sees Zac Efron on the list. He was too one-dimensional in the 2000s.

35 Nicole Kidman Nicole Kidman Nicole Mary Kidman is an Australian-American actress and film producer. Kidman's breakthrough roles were in the 1989 feature film thriller Dead Calm and television thriller miniseries Bangkok Hilton.

Why do people think she's sexy? She's hideous. Only half decent film she's in was Practical Magic, where she was totally outshone by Sandra Bullock. I walked out of Eyes Wide Shut half way through.

Terribly self conscious actress! The only reason she made it in Hollywood was her marriage to Tom. So many flops. I don't watch movies with her ie Moulin Rouge (even though I think Ewan is great) and Australia. Gosh, it would be painful to have to watch her. Vain, self conscious and definitely not a great actor. Oh and she stuck a fake nose on and got a best supporting actress award. PLEASE!

so overrated the movies that she acted in suck because of her if there was a different actress it might have been better
- ert112233

I remember everyone questioned Nicole Kidman's acting ability when she made Australian and since then she's continued to have flop after flop after flop... She just a really awful actress. She's holds onto being famous by being turning up at every awards ceremony and being a total fame whore.

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

He's the best actor I've ever seen. I absolutely love and adore him

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

His acting range is quite limited, but as long as mindless action flicks exist, his career will be keep going.

Wooden actor, sexy, but still untalented. - LukeTargaryen

37 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.

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.

SERIOUSLY 32 guys this man is awesome I mean he worked on PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN which was fabulous. so please vote vote now

38 Charlize Theron Charlize Theron

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.

Shes great I love her shes hot

39 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.

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?

The man will never learn how to act EVER!

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

40 Robert De Niro Robert De Niro

Probably the best actor of his generation. And he takes risks. I'm always AMAZED at the risky roles he takes too. The comedies parts he's tried even though he's not really good at least he tries. Guy has NO FEAR. True actor.

Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of all time. What the hell is he doing on this list. Don't believe me? Watch The GodfatherP Pt. 2, Goodfellas, Heat, Silver Linings Playbook, Casino, Frankenstein (even though it wasnt the greatest movie, De Niro was amazing like in all of his movies)
This list has no credibility whatsoever

An actor with a career of more than hundred of movies ( many of them are cult-classics ) and still there are people who are saying that this actor is overrated? With such an impressive career it's normal that some movies were less good than others but to call him an overrated actor is really ridiculous. People who are thinking that this exeptional actor is overrated or even a bad actor (? ) have really bad judging capacities or not very sane in their minds if you ask me. This actor really doen't belong here! Robert De Niro on this list just doesn't feel right. Get him out of this list!

I would not say he was overrated at all. He may just be the most versatile actor to have ever lived or even the best.
