Most Overrated Actors/Actressesheather
The Contenders: Page 3
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.V 25 Comments
Do you think she can act? No. She looked really ordinary.
I was horrified when I saw that this woman is considered beautiful by American standards. I find her so plain and ordinary. She isn't a very good or versatile actress either
Not about the sexiness guys, it's about how overrated they are, get a grip

Great actor, I don't think I've ever seen a bad movie he was in
You should be ashamed to put him on the same list as kim kardashian and Paris hilton
Superb actor; very credible as a courageous hero or vulnerable anti-hero.
Whoever listed this sensational actor here is an absolute bonehead with below ground level knowledge of movies and acting...He's one the few purest and authentic actor Hollywood ever had...Gave his absolute 110% in ever single movie he featured in and not just that he's is very interesting, charming, brilliant conversationalist on and on...all of these qualities have been depicted and witnessed by all in his movies...Last of all, How Dare You?V 16 Comments
I actually love lady gaga's acting skills she was great as a helpful waitress in Sin City A dame to kill for and she was fantastic as La Chameleon in Machete Kills and even won best actress golden globe for American Horror Story Hotel as a phenomenal and the memorable Countess Elizabeth and before that she did a really good acting job in her music video Marry the Night
A bunch of documentaries, tours, and a Simpsons episode don't count as "acting".
Entertainers and actors/actresses are different categories even if they appears in movies like "machete".
She's more overrated as a singer than an actress.V 5 Comments
I will say that Mickey Rourke is the budget Bruce Willis in many ways. However I do like them both. I will admit that Bruce is one of those actors who is basically the same person in everything. After all there are many types of acting styles. Method actors, Character actors, typecasts etc... but The thing is is that Bruce is himself in everything but he's awesome and very entertaining and does have good range. He might not be able to play Willy Wonka well but many couldn't fit such a role. There is a good reason why he is in so many great movies. Props to Bruce and to hell with the haters.
Probably my favorite actor of the last 25 years. Very under-rated too because most people think of him as a total goof or action hero. He's extremely good as a serious actor. I can name a dozen of his movies I love. Great great actor.
Here is one of the most hit and miss actors for me on this list. Often just plain lazy, but he has quite a few movies that are on my favorites list and still has the potential to pull one off unlike some actors like DeNiro who checked out years ago. That said, I'm not sure I will find it when it comes out since he will agree to sign onto anything that pays regardless of quality.

Not the greatest actor and comparatively limited in what he did but he had an aura and a screen presence not many could or can match. A legend!
All those actors back then were awesome. Now movies today are lousy. Bring all those actors back then back to life so we can see more excellent movies instead of lousy day actors who always are in the same roles. Back then, you could not run out of ideas whatsoever.
A textbook case of not so much "actor" as "movie star." you couldn't find a less versatile performer if your life depended on it!
OVERRATED, hackV 5 Comments
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?
Love him. Intelligent and trans formative actor.
Bottom of the pile
Hasn't been in a movie I like. My mother loves him.
Sexy! man acting is okV 1 Comment
He is an arrogant idiot. I remember in a "song" of his in 1999 that he said "Millennium? Nah, willennium". As if 2000 years of history has led up to this man declaring himself the centre of history. This arrogance (unjustified - he's not good looking or good at acting) comes across in many ways, both subtle and blatant. Get a life, you moron! Praising yourself is ugly, not cool!
Okay, you guys need to get a grip. Let's put you in Will's shoes and see the absolutely wonderful (note sarcasm) job you do on the big screen. Just please shut up. Do you not have anything better to do?
He is so annoying included his son and daughter, who they think they are? Untalented family. they are a waste of space!

She was awesome (and super pretty) in Flight of the Navigator. I've never really understood why people are always so mean to her just because you find her unattractive. Sarah Jessica never made any poor life choices, therefore there is no reason to be BIG BULLIES! - RockFashionista
Absolutely the most overrated actress. Not that great of an actor. Not that pretty. Period.
One of the most talentless actresses in the past 10 years. All her rules are one - hers. I am amused that somebody paid her $30M for a movie. She should have kept in the silly girly sex and the city. Waste of big screen.
Wilbur. No talentV 27 Comments
Does he have any talent? He is an average dancer with a lot of luck! His acting is awful and somehow it seems for me as if he had in Hollywood a lot of connections/friends so that we are pretty much condemned to see him play!
After seeing him in roles like Alpha Dog and the Guru I found myself very impressed as he exceeded my expectations. He's funny on film and in real life but he does serious roles well too. There is a reason he's been a repeat host on SNL. Live comedy skits are not easy to do for even legendary actors. I'm not saying he's the greatest and either is anyone else for that matter but Timberlake is an overall talented guy and deserves respect as an entertainer
Good. Has talent as a singer and actor. Doesn't really do serious parts though. He's more of a Hollywood star than a serious actor. He may someday try a difficult part and we'll see if he can do it.
He can sing and dance, I don't consider him an actor, he is alright, I think he might think a lot more highly of his talents and looks, than most others do.V 8 Comments
Very good. I can list a dozen of his movies I absolutely love. He rarely does interviews and when he does he VERY sincere. He hates doing them too because he thinks most of Hollywood is bull. Love him.
Bit of a grump in real life but a man's man - a rarity these days. All male actors are vain though - so he's probably like the rest in that regard. Don't think he has a large acting range -pulls the same faces all the time but who cares. He's a one off. A national treasure. Kiss me Harrison.
He should have stop making movies in the mid nineties; everything since then has been an embarrassment.

She looks just fine - when whe wears tons of makeup, but either way she's good looking or not (and she's not), she's still one of the most overrated actress I know of. Not that she's not really bad, but she's just... not good! Her success comes from her parents. And she's kinda anoying, since magazines are still talking about her when she only does crappy movies. Let's face it; her career is over.
Kate hudson is plain and ordinary looking, she's really just average and that's only AFTER the plastic surgery on her nose, the long hair covering her extended ears and dye job to lighten her hair. She has a shallow profile and wide face... Odd features to say the least and her body does not look like that of a woman, but more girl like.
Only in acting and keeps acting because of her mom Goldie and her mom keeps giving her parts or her name does. Hang it up Kate, have some pride and do something else or earn your acting skills like the people who had to work for it, because you can't act. Only a clone of her mom and her mom is still prettier. that goes for you too Gwyneth Paltrow, stop trying to be a singer because it's as bad as your acting.
Oh no another in the family pick. Very little talent just like one face mama.V 7 Comments
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.
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.
When I saw the movie "American hustle" and later on read the critics it was like that suddenly she was the greatest actress alive in this world. Honestly, she doesn't stand out against the real talented Amy Adams in this movie.
Her acting is so medicore nothing special! Oh and an oscar for silver lining? Really?V 36 Comments
Absolutely charming capable believable and wonderful. He's the best
This guy really can't act. The worst are the romantic comedies ( A lot like love, Guess who... ).And in more serious roles like for example " The butterfly effect" he is not believable. How a untalented actor like him still gets roles and attention by the Hollywood executives is unbelievable. Way too overrated to be called an actor in fact. He's just a silly entertainer and an idiot if you ask me.
Wonderful moving performer. Go crazy when I get to watch him
No way.V 8 Comments
The person disparaging this amazing actor hasuch no taste and nary a brain cell. John Travolta has the courage to be himself and is wonderful and brilliant. He can sing and dance as well
What a kind caring, vulnerable and honest actor and humanbeing.
Complete hack! Two famous roles a one dates back to the seventies. Played a good junkie in pulp fiction. But we all know Sam Jackson made that one work.
Started off strong then off the cliff.V 3 Comments
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.

I'm glued to the screen when he is in a movie. Love him.
Hard to say, most films I've seen him in, he was pretty good but then, these were good movies to begin with. Maybe he's just good at picking his roles. Anyway not much to complain about so far.
When Ryan acts in a movie he just takes a seat somewhere and begins to give an empty stare. Occasionally he wanders off to another spot and stares there too. He looks absolutely ridiculous doing it, but that's all he got and he gets money for doing it so...
You have to focus on his emotions to understand his acting which you don't

Okay, guys. Listen up! Seriously! Most of you guys went to see the Transformers movies just to see HIM and demand more screentime of HIM, just because he's the main star! Yes he's the main star of the films, but that doesn't mean that the movies are good! Here's a valuable life lesson and, of course, there will be disagreements: ACTORS DON'T MAKE THE FILM! SCREENPLAY AND SCRIPTWRITING MAKE THE DANG FILM! GET OVER IT, YOU IDIOTS! I DO have no problem with people liking Shia LaBeouf though, no am I against the actor at all, but it's you idiots who have dedicated yourselves to this guy! Ever since he quit on Michael Bay, since the director's hard to get along with, and won't star in anymore Transformers movies, especially because of you fanboys and fangirls (don't EVER get offended! ), you people have been whining and complaining to get Shia back just because he's the main star of the Transformers films! I've seen Transformers shows that HAVE no Sam Witwicky, especially if you want him ...more
Just a douche with annoying acting. Although he's been in a few good films it doesn't mean his performances are good.
He's interesting. He was good in the von trier film that I can't remember the name of. Von trier always picks the creme de la creme of Hollywood so be aware of this actor - ChatonNoir
I just cannot warm up to him. He always looks angry.V 9 Comments
He's so funny and built and quite dreamy
Drop dead gorgeous and drop dead funny
Funny, quick, real and great to watch. Wonderful comedic actor.
All his movies would be better with someone else in his part.V 7 Comments
