61 Marion Davies Marion Davies Marion Davies, born Marion Cecilia Douras (January 3, 1897 – September 22, 1961) was an American film actress, producer, screenwriter, and philanthropist. ...read more.

You know she is overrated when she is #5 Best actress and you know the same person keeps voting for her. Nobodys ever heard of her.

Very Overrated. Many of her contemperaries were more talented ( Louise Brooks, Dolores del Rio,Mary pickford... ).
She had even a stutter problem. Sad and not her fault, but a fact that can't be ignored when you put her on the best actresses list.

62 Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Van Damme Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg, professionally known as Jean-Claude Van Damme and abbreviated as JCVD, is a Belgian actor, martial artist, screenwriter, film producer, and director best known for his martial arts action films.

Van Damme is has made some of the best most legendary martial arts films of all time and Van Damme (no offense to Seagal) compared to Seagal is a better actor. He was meant for making great action/martial art movies and they are better than Seagal movies by far. If you can't appreciate movies like Bloodsport and Kickboxer then you have no business judging movies of that type. Keep in mind that martial arts is his primary skill and that goes for all martial artist gone actors. They have good enough acting and awesome athletic martial art abilities to showcase which is why they make great movies or their genre. You simply cannot compare them to actors like Kevin Spacey or Tom Hanks. It's unfair and not what they do. You have to respect them for what they do well.

I like him when he's in movies where he kicks ass. He's very well known for having sex with girls in his car. Haha. He's a Hollywood cliche.

Absolutely the worst ever... His movies are unwatchable. Love Seagal compared to this clown.

This is great actor

63 Sarah Michelle Gellar Sarah Michelle Gellar Sarah Michelle Gellar is an American actress, producer and entrepreneur. After being spotted by an agent at the age of four in New York City, she made her acting debut in the made-for-TV movie An Invasion of Privacy.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is Buffy! How can anyone not love this woman! She's so sweet and a wonderful wife and mother, she's one of the few female actresses I can actually watch without cringing.

Sarah is perfect. - DecodeThis

An actress who seems to be good in some types of movies or in some types of scripts. Outstanding performances in " Harvard man" ( her best ), " Possesion " and " Veronica wants to die ". Other movies are unwatchable because of her bad acting skills. I think that she has to choose movies that really fits her because she's not the versatile actress that she believes she is. As a matter of fact, this is an actress who is difficult to Judge for her acting skills. The only sure thing about her is that she's really cute.

She was actually very good in the movie " Harvard man ". I'm not a fan of her acting, so I was really surprised. Why can't she act like that all the time?

Not bad.

64 Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.

One of my favorite actors. See 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'. Great movie.

This guy should be in the first spot. Other than a couple of decent movies, his career has went downhill repeating the same Tony Stark formula for his characters.

Very egotistical. His father was a film director. Nepotism strikes again.

The argument here is weak. "After Iron Man, his career has consisted in repeating Tony Stark-esque roles." So what?! He's great as Iron man. Just because he acted as the same character in multiple movies doesn't mean he's a bad actor. - Tia-Harribel

65 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.

66 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

I'm not a fan of her singing, but I think she has a potential to become a good actress. She's still learning because she is very young and for that matter I believe it's too soon to Judge her acting capacities. Time will tell us if she's too overrated or not.

Miley Cyrus could learn from her.

I prefer her singing career more than her acting career.

What is wrong with u people Selena Gomez was amazing in the part o beatrice in Romona and Beatrice she is positively amazing inside and out

She can't act her way out of the paper bag plus she has zero personality...

Absolutely gorgeous looking. But I've never liked anything she's done. Annoying. Thank God she never became an A list actress.

Just watching Deep Impact and her rang is incredible. Same face for distress, happy, sad, concern. She makes Haden Christian look practically Oscar worthy

Oh Tea owa wow. So pretty but can't act.

She's only so famous because people think she's pretty. SHE'S NOT EVEN THAT HOT! IT BOTHERS ME SO MUCH! Flat breasts and ass. Stomach's a bit big. Hardly has a waist. Her face bugs me out

Only famous for Nudity in TWOWS. Her acting is soap opera standard and her only range s - IheartMac

Ugly with makeup, even worse looking with no makeup. She is good at taking her clothes off, but she lacks acting talent, her true life's calling was to be a stripper. She lacks the body to be a stripper, so now she plays one on the big screen.

She's not all that.

This girl has not got a great acting bone in her body. That nauseating, vomit inducting, high pitch voice she puts on just makes my stomach wrench in agony as I weep for humanity.
The only real reason people like her is because teenage girls propel this people into the media.

In the T.V.-series " Scream Queens " she did get no more than a few lines and they killed her character after 3 episodes. It says all about her acting capacities. Also in " Zoolander 2 " she says a few words and is in the picture for 20 seconds. Where are her " I have proved my amazing acting skills as an actress " movies?

She's overrated. - Anonymousxcxc

Nickelodeon's Selena Gomez. She will force you to like Justin Bieber. She makes Jar Jar Binks easier to listen to.

70 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.

71 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?

72 Sylvester Stallone Sylvester Stallone

Stallone makes great movies hands down. He is meant for Hollywood. After all he wrote Rocky. That movie is his movie by every means possible and that movie franchise amongst Rambo as well are American Classics for a reason. They are original and awesome. It's hard to believe anyone under 25 would not like him. For those under 25... No offense but most of you are deprived of the movies that evolved Hollywood in to what it is and need to watch more classics.

Biggest whore in all of Hollywood. The violence in his movies are obscene pornography. Retire already.

Terrible actor, why he can't make good drama films that he used to be in the 70's and 80's when he was a small-time porn star?

He became an A list actor for one part. 'Rocky'. He's Tom Cruise before Tom Cruise. God do I hate his movies except for 'Rocky'. If I met him I'd laugh my ass off.

73 Mark Wahlberg Mark Wahlberg Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg is an American actor, producer, businessman, and former model and rapper.

Good. I loved him in 'Boogie Nights'. I also loved him in 'The Departed'. 'The Fighter' wasn't bad. I think he's very smart. He produces a lot of stuff and succeeds at almost all of it. Very talented.

I can't think of a single movie I liked because of him, but can think of a few movies that were passable or even good movies where he didn't have a role that hinged on his abilities or that gave him proper support and role.
I also can't think of any movies that couldn't have replaced him with another actor and survived. I've watched far too many bad movies with him to not use his name as a warning sign when it has top billing.

Each film with him as a lead should have a disclaimer: Warning Marky Mark has likely ruined this film which was also likely green lit for all the wrong reasons with the top priority to take your money and sell you that since it made a lot of money it is a good film or that if it fails is not his fault.

For someone that has made so many big movies, he has managed to not have gotten more nominations for awards. I think Mark Wahlberg has had an amazingly successful career and life considering the sum total of his talents. However he did have a very strong physique that he honed to a sharp instrument after almost falling into a life of crime. If he really wanted to make himself look better, he should look for the couple of Asian men he maimed as a kid and give them a few million dollars for their injuries suffered...
I think his career was definitely helped by having a bit of good luck and being in the right places at the right time. After all he almost was on one of the flights that flew into the WTC Buildings on 9/11.

That whole family can't act.

74 Matt Damon Matt Damon

Maybe not the worst actor out there but he is for sure too overrated. He's good in some movies ( but I can't decide if that is because the film is good and he's Lucky to be in it or because he is good ) but he's also in much movies where I find him boring and annoying to watch.

I'm in love with him really he he and my husband know

He sucks and good will hunting is one of the worst movies of all time

75 Hugh Jackman Hugh Jackman Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician . Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters .

Beautiful brilliant and highly talented actor

Fabulous actor. Multi talented.

Most of the times a good actor. But in very dramatic roles I think he needs to still improve his acting. I hope he does because otherwise he will never be a great actor to compete with the best.

76 Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

Best in his role of the Terminator. In other words, his best work is when he's portraying a cyborg; void of facial expression, emotions and any general characteristic traits...

I agree he's not a great actor but the accent thing? Think about it.. His first language was dramatically different from English... That's like having an American actor in a Japanese movie and criticizing them for not having an authentic Japanese accent...

Doesn't take seriously roles. Most of his movies are as an action star. He's the king of the one liner. I like him, but I don't see him as a true actor.

He is not an actual actor for me. He is just Arnold. As Conan, as Terminator, as Predator. I love his "acting" and he seems not to be stupid and he has a sense of humor.

He was a fine character actor in the film noire genre

Great actor of the understating, he knew his genre.

What idiot put this great actor on this list?

This isn't serious! Robert Mitchum a overrated actor? He's a LEGEND and should not be in this list at all.

Just because you can play the governor of Alaska doesn't make you talented!

She can do a lot more than just play dopey Palin. One of the all-time greats on SNL and then there was this show called Thirty Rock? One of the hardest workers in the industry. A very talented, industrious lady. Plus, she and Amy Poehler were hilarious hosting the Oscars together.

I think she so NOT funny. I don't like Amy p either - ChatonNoir

80 Jennifer Love Hewitt Jennifer Love Hewitt

I don't think that this very beautiful actress is overrated. She's very appreciated by many for her talent ( she's a good actress, she produces, she sings ) and that's hardly the same thing as to be overrated. A very adorable and down to earth actress in real life and she's certainly not just a pretty face with no talent or brains that's only be there to watching by.

Not overrated but underrated actress. Most people knows her from her popular movies and her T.V. shows but when you see her lesser-known work you will actually understand how talented she is. This adorable actress really don't deserve to be on this list. She's too talented for that!

The Kristen Stewart of 1997. How and why she keeps getting roles just when you think she's finally gone away for good is beyond me.

Why does everybody keep defending her? Her middle name is not a command!
