21 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice is contralto. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

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.

Miley isn’t overrated. For starters, she is a decent actress and secondly, she has always received criticism for her acting so it’s not like she’s overrated.

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

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

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.

Easily the worst actor I've ever seen that is making big money...unbelievable!

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.

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

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

The hottest guy ever

25 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.

She is one piece in the world

26 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.

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.

28 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?

Overrated in everything - gruppenfuhrer

29 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.

Only in films for her looks, not her acting - gruppenfuhrer

30 Sean Penn Sean Penn Sean Justin Penn is an American actor, filmmaker, and political activist. He has won two Academy Awards, for his roles in the mystery drama Mystic River and the biopic Milk.

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.

31 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.

32 Meryl Streep Meryl Streep Mary Louise "Meryl" Streep is an American actress. Cited in the media as the "best actress of her generation", Streep is particularly known for her versatility in her roles, transformation into the characters she plays, and her accent adaptation.

Most of the people in the top 10 are just bad actors, not overrated. Meryl Streep is a highly rated actress, despite the fact she can only do annoyingly over the top melodramatic. She has one facial expression and one acting preset, which can't really be classed as acting if she does the same thing all the time. There are much better actresses who get half the acclaim Streep does

Look, Meryl Streep maybe a good actress but she isn't the best actress of all time like most people say. She is extremely overrated and she only got 13 Oscar nods because most of them are landmark films. If a film is nominated for best picture the chances are some of the actors/actresses will get nominated because big film get noticed by the Academy. And the rest, after someone wins an Oscar the Academy follows their career making it a lot easier to get noticed, for example, Sean Penn was finally nominated for Dead Man Walking and got several of them till he won for Mystic River. Just because Streep puts on an accent in all her films, doesn't mean you should praise her as the greatest actress ever. Her movies with accents is just a smoke screen. Shes no better than anyone actress in Hollywood. She just gets offer huge roles. Besides she lost her first Oscar. She must not care that much about them

Streep is terribly overrated. She may have some talent but ruins many scenes shes in by over-dramatizing the role to no end. People complain about Shatner overacting, but I find her considerably more irritating. If you told her to pick up a pencil to write a store list, she would make it all about her, add dramatic pauses where they don't belong and try to misdirect the scene from other more important aspects of the situation. It has evolved to the point where I fast forward thru her parts so I don't have to listen or watch. There is a difference between "acting" and overindulging your ego to make the part something its not. The backlash I'm sure I'll receive for my opinion is what stops others from saying as much. I know many people in my extended group have ranked her the #1 overrated actress of all time. Not to mention she is very homely. Thank goodness she didn't make King Kong.

Honey being lucky at getting different parts does not mean u CAN play them... Just saying

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 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.

Stiff.

36 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

37 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.

38 Vince Vaughn Vince Vaughn

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?

39 Kim Kardashian Kim Kardashian Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian West is an American reality television personality, actress, socialite, businesswoman and model.

She is very annoying and untalented

Not an actress. She's a part of the new 'entertainment industry' in the last 15 years where you get famous by looking hot and posing half naked like Paris. At least Marilyn Monroe was in 'Some Like it Hot'.

I didn't realize she was an actress. Never watched anything with her in it on purpose and to me she could easily just be a sex doll puppet crafted by the surgeon and existing in a void I have no interest in.

I thought she'd be higher. I'm so shocked that my eyeballs bulged right out of their sockets.

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.
