41 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . ...read more.

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.

42 Bruce Willis Bruce Willis Walter Bruce Willis, known professionally as Bruce Willis, is an American actor, producer, and singer.

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.

Middle of the pack

Bottom of the pile

Sexy! man acting is ok

44 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake

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.

45 Harrison Ford Harrison Ford Harrison Ford is an American actor and film producer. He gained worldwide fame for his starring roles as Han Solo in the original Star Wars epic space opera trilogy and the title character of the Indiana Jones film series.

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.

Gritty engaging

46 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.

While I don't particularly care for Kristen Stewert's acting, I do find it unfair that she's mainly criticized for only acting with one facial expression when ScarJo does the same exact thing and has won awards for it. - DisniPrinzess

47 Kate Hudson Kate Hudson

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.

48 Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker is an American actress, producer, and designer. She is best known for her leading role as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO television series Sex and the City.

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 talent

49 Ashton Kutcher Ashton Kutcher

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.

50 John Travolta John Travolta John Joseph Travolta is an American actor, dancer, and singer. Travolta first became known in the 1970s, after appearing on the television series Welcome Back, Kotter and starring in the box office successes Saturday Night Fever and Grease.

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.

51 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.

52 Shia LaBeouf Shia LaBeouf Shia Saide LaBeouf is an American actor, performance artist, and director who became known among younger audiences as Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens.

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.

53 Ben Stiller Ben Stiller Benjamin Edward Meara "Ben" Stiller is an American actor, comedian, and filmmaker. He is well known for his roles in various comedies including There's Something About Mary, Zoolander, DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, and Tropic Thunder.

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.

54 Ryan Gosling Ryan Gosling Ryan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, musician, and producer. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark?

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

All right

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

56 Cara Delevingne Cara Delevingne

Screw Paper Towns. She hooked up with Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez. She seemed rather miscast as the Sorceress in Suicide Squad. Does anyone want bleach this instant?

The only rason she is famous is because of her modeling career. No one cares much for her as an actress at all. Plus the only reason she gets roles in films is because of her modeling career. She's a good model, she just has no acting talent at all.

She ruined suicide squad that's an enough reason for her to be on that list

57 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

I seriously believe that Madonna would have been the mother of all publicists. She can't sing (even though when I was a kid, I loved her first four albums), she can't act and yet has managed to stay in the spotlight. She knows how to promote herself and she actually looks better now than she did 30 years ago. The mother of reinvention but the worst "singer turned actress" ever... Yes even worse than Beyonce.

How did Madonna fail to make first on the list? No talent except for selling herself and over hyping everything she does. Someone needs to tell Grandma that she's too old to sell her bod.

I don't understand how someone in front of millions of people for YEARS at this point can still be so wooden in her interviews & when she tries to act. Why can't she relax & be more fluid & expressive? She's just a plank board. It's painful watching her try to act.

Ok Madonna cannot act. Shanghai surprise was a disaster - ChatonNoir

58 Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Kate Hudson is an American singer, actress and spokesperson. She rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, coming in seventh place.

Her commercials make me want to stick forks in my ears. Make her voice stop, or teach her better pronunciation.

No talent, acts more like a Jewish princess. Certainly not like her mother Goldie Hawn who is a fabulous comedic and dramatic actress!

Laugh out loud... I like 'Almost Famous' but HATE every other movie she has made. She's okay as an actress but never takes risks. So its hard to rate her.

Jennifer Hudson is not Goldie Hawn's daughter. Kate Hudson is.

Intense intelligent and the best

They don't get any hotter

I'm losing interest in the acting career of this man...
